Andy and Joyce were incredibly kind and generous to me and my co-workers when we stayed there for the week. Our project was based in Galena and the drive back and forth from this motel was short and scenic. Showers have plenty of hot water and the room was clean and tidy upon arrival. I personally had the VIP suite with the canopy bed and consistently had a great night's sleep every night. And on top of that the owners offer a free glass of wine, or bottle of water or soda! Not sure what else one could ask for out of a motel. Highly recommended! :)

The owners are awesome! We had 6 rooms reserved for our group, and everyone was thrilled with the condition of the rooms and the property. This place is VERY well maintained, and the owners (Andy & Joyce) live on site so they pay attention to everything! Andy had some great suggestions for nearby meals and even offered to have whatever beer/soda/water on ice and ready for us when we got there (disclaimer: he showed us the receipt and we paid him back, as we previously agreed) but this was awesome that he would take the time to do this.

This motel is a gem in the Elizabeth area! Andy and Joyce are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and well-maintained. The back of the motel has a lovely view of the hills and a comfy hammock. The bed in the Essex room was very comfy with plenty of pillows! We will definitely be back again. Also - the motel is very biker friendly!

This small motel run by Andy and Joyce....two really nice people... offers, with the exception of breakfast, everything larger chain motels do EXCEPT the price. Clean and comfortable...a little noisy at night as it is on route 20 and trucks come by once in a while (didn't bother me). happy trails
