I grew up in this neck of the woods and I remember when this motel was built back in the 60's. It has been thru many incarnations since then, but its current one as the Marcotte's Family Motel is probably the best yet. My son and I motorcycled 500 miles to visit my mother in Elizabeth, and we decided to...

Great Hospitality. Comfortable cozy rooms. We needd a ajoining room and it worked out great! We had coffee and muffins at our doorstep in the morning. We were traveling a night and the owner came out to greet us right away. The rate was very affordable. It's outside of Elizabeth, but worth the extra time if you are planning on...

I lucked into this delightful mom-and-pop style motel at dusk on a Saturday evening. It was a pleasant departure from the chain-motel travel experience. My room was charming, very clean, and had windows that open to allow cool evening air and soothing night sounds. The view over the lush, rolling hills was lovely. A carafe of coffee with a warm...

Two of us stayed overnight in Marcotte's Family Motel in Elizabeth, Illinois, and found an unexpected treasure! We had a lovely room with huge king bed, additional daybed, table and chairs, refrigerator and microwave, and large spotlessly clean bathroom with full bath and shower. Decorated in white and pastel colors, with many open-able windows, it was inviting and serene. We...

A true old fashioned mom and pop motel. Clean, charming, friendly. What one hopes to find, but rarely does. And the coffee and muffin waiting outside the door was a wonderful amenity.

“Rooms detached from the rest of the hotel are larger and good for families. I believe there is a unit with kitchen facilities.”

“We stayed in one of three rooms which are located separately from the main motel, although right across the parking lot. The one we were in was spacious and would comfortably accommodate a couple and one or two children.”
