“A step back in time, but not in comfort.”
Reviewed 23 August 2009

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.

My fiance and I stayed here last minute on our way from Michigan to Galena for a wedding. We did not arrive until 2am and we had our room waiting for us without any problems. The room was cute and perfect for us to crash after a 6-7 hour drive. The coffee and muffins the next morning were perfect for our morning. They went the next step and made sure there was a ironing board and iron in our room waiting for us. We had an excellent stay. The only downside was that the electrical outlets could not properly run the iron or hair dryer we brought. But that was minor. Will stay again if ever in the area. The price was right!

Donna is a great host, she handled our reservations and check-in just like the Four Seasons Biltmore! Our room was clean and comfortable, the attached kitchen had all those "little" things..bottle opener, coffee filters, paper towels that makes travel easier!
Donna provides coffee service and muffins on your doorstep every morning as a nice touch! We would highly recommend this motel to any traveler along Highway 20 and visitors to the historic Stockton-Elizabeth-Galena Illinois area! Tell Donna that the Tiffany's recommended staying with her!

This was our second visit to the area, and our second stay at Marcotte's Family Motel. We had such a good time, not only comfortable accomadations, but we had a wonderful night by the campfire. There was seven of us, and we had connecting rooms, so what a plus that was! Of course, our morning was made complete by the delicous coffee and homemade muffins. We love the scenery, and took a walk around the property for pictures. The Marcotte family made us feel welcome, even suggesting places to eat in the nearby area - and we were not disappointed.

The first time we stayed at the Marcotte family motel was about 8 years ago, and we love it just as much today as we did then. It is quiet, clean, comfortable and affordable. The rooms are charming and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. The views are beautiful and the morning coffee and home made muffins are worth the trip alone. Not only do we stay here every fall, we have sent family members to stay here and they are now also repeat customers.

Once again on a trip to Elizabeth, I stayed at the Marcotte's Family Motel just east on Higway 20. It is quiet and comfortable and clean and neat. For me, it is reminisent of those wonderful trips taken as a child to visit grandparents in the country. I really like that I am able to park just outside the door of my room.
