“Cozy, clean, affordable and accommodating!”
Reviewed 25 May 2009

We stayed at the L & M Motel over Memorial Weekend. We were planning to hike at the Mississippi Palisade State Park, and not knowing what the weather would be, we decided to play it safe and get a motel room. After searching online, I called the L & M Motel and booked a room.

When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised that the room was a suite. The owner personally walked us there, and showed us all the amenities. It was tastefully decorated, with a full refrigerator, stove, dishes, silverware and linens. A gas grill was available outside of the room for patrons use.

I mentioned that my adult daughter and her friend would be joining us the following evening. Instead of saying we would have to pay for additional people, the owner graciously offered to send up linens for their air mattress.

The location was good for us, just about 5 miles from the state park. The town of Savanna was just down the street, too. We were able to walk along the Mississippi and join other travelers at the local pubs for a few cocktails and socializing. This was a nice place to stay.

We had heard about this motel through our friends that ride in our ABATE chapter and wanted to check it out. Our stay was for only one night, but the accomadations were great. We were greeted at the desk by smiling and friendly faces. The rooms were extremely clean. They offered a service to drive us to and from Poopys, but we declined as we weren't going to party too hard that night. They did help my friends galpal get some meds for her new tatoo, by driving her out and back from town. They make sure all their clients for the night make it back home safely before they retire themselves. In the morning, they provided towels for our bikes, to clean off the morning dew. They were very nice and pleasant to talk to.I commend Lois and her husband for a great stay and will be back again in 2009.

At first our motorcycle group of 8 was a little wary of staying here, but the Super 8 was totally booked and we did not want to travel too far outside of Savanna. After talking with Lois, the proprietor, I felt more comfortable about being responsible for making the overnight plans. All the rooms were very comfortable and VERY clean. While the exterior of the hotel could use some TLC, it did not detract from our stay. For those who plan on over doing it at Poopie's or elsewhere, the hotel hosts will drive you in and pick you back up, when you are ready, free of charge. Their only objective is that their guests have a good and safe time. You won't find that kind of consideration in a chain hotel line! Based on our one night stay, we will re-book at L & M when visiting Savanna or Galena, or just passing through. The theme rooms, while seeming kitschy, are fun, and they are enjoyable.

Stayed at this hotel when we were in town for a funeral. I was pleasantly surprised that the hotel was very clean and comfortable. If I am ever back in Savana I would definately stay here again.

I chose to come back this year after a fantastic stay last summer. Once again I was not disappointed. I arrived in a large group of forty and Lois (the owner) had all our check-in paperwork done and a cooler of cold beverages waiting at the door. What could be more perfect? She was on top of all our needs promptly and still had time to sit around with us and socialize. After thirty years of traveling and staying in motels, I am happy to say that the two stays at the L&M Motel have been by far two of my favorites!!

Another "GREAT" stay for the second year in a row at the L & M Motel. Lois and all the girls had everything set up and ready for our group of over 40 people upon our arrival. And if it wasn't already supplied, they made sure it got to us in record time. This kind of down home friendly atmosphere and accommodation is something rarely seen in the motel setting, (especially for that many). We all appreciate the time taken and work provided to make our stay the best that it could be...
Thanks again,
