We go yearly and stay at the Marcott. Quaint, clean place with coffee and homemade warm muffins delivered to your door in the morning. Enjoyed the fire pit this visit, as we sat with our family. Love this quaint place!

Marcotte’s is a fantastic place to stay! Super clean and quaint! The owners are wonderful and great. This was my second time at the motel and could not wait to show it to my friend. Spacious room, very comfortable bed, and the coffee tray in the morning was the cherry on top! Prices are very reasonable and it is not a chain! You will not be disappointed, trust me!

This place was awesome. I am not a fancy person I just want a place that is clean and cheap. Well this place fit the bill. The people who ran the motel were friendly and awesome and the coffee and muffin outside the door in the morning was so delightful. I would definitely stay again.

I won’t think of leaving my dogs at home when traveling by car. My recent trip to Galena was made pleasurable when I stayed at Marcotte Family Motel on 20 East. Not only were Kate and Duke welcome, but there was plenty of fields and country lanes for them to exercise. The room was clean, Donna, the proprietor friendly, and the delicious muffins and morning coffee delivered to your room a delight. It is an old fashion motel with charm.

Clean, comfortable, adorable, just need a place to sleep, a step back in time kind of room, accommodating, reasonable, lovely family-owned, convenient location. We're going back in August and probably again in October.
