“Exceded expectations”
Reviewed 5 August 2011

Just needed a bed and shower. Woke up to our own personal pot of coffee and fresh blueberry muffins outside our room. Wonderful. The owner was personally interested in making sure everything was ok.

The stay was the best I've ever had in any stateside hotel. And the price was awesome. It was spacious and clean, and fresh, and had a homey feel to it. The bathroom was clean and fresh. And the lady at the desk made us feel so welcome by showing us to our room, and making sure we were comfortable. Every morning, she made muffins and coffee and brought it to our door. The muffins were AMAZING.

I spent the weekend in the Elizabeth area to go kayaking and get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Marcotte's Motel was a very welcome respite for me; the host(s) are very friendly, and the room we stayed in was very clean and spacious. It was wonderful to find coffee and muffins at the door each of the two mornings we were there. I would highly recommend this motel if you're not looking for the fancy, schmancy hotel ammenities. If you're looking for a fairly basic room with a reasonable price tag that offers personal and friendly service, I would highly recommend this motel.

Just what we were looking for: "homesy", comfortable, clean, affordable.
We got all that, plus. We stayed 2 nites while on a kayak excursion to Galena. Perfect location. We wanted convenience to Galena without all the 'hype.' Donna and Art go out of their way to make you feel welcome and ensure you enjoy your stay. Rooms are large and clean - equipped with mini fridge and microwave. Comfortable beds with plenty of bedding and pillows. Urn of coffee and homemade muffins left on a serving tray outside your room every morning. Delightful.
The town of Elizabeth is small and friendly. If you want a relaxed, laid back evening, we went into town and enjoyed friendly service and fun at Shark's Roadhouse. This bar caters to families and food early in the evening; and later dancing to the jukebox!
