We were in town for just one night for a family wedding, and our stay at Marcotte's was so pleasant from start to finish! Donna Marcotte was so friendly, our apartment was very clean and had lots of space and amenities for 3 adults and 3 kids, and what a treat to wake up to hot coffee and delicious, warm...

I was greeted by a very friendly hostess, and allowed to check in early, as I had a wedding to get to. The room was clean, comfortable, with updated fixtures/flooring etc, in the bath and unique, attractive furnishings and decor in the main room. I had a great night's sleep, and hot coffee and fresh muffins appeared - as promised...

We stayed for three nights on our motorcycle getaway, Rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The owners are very friendly and great hosts. It was a nice location just away from the quaint lil towns of Jo Daviss County. We will be back!!

More of a B&B than a motel,for a quick get away to Galena you can not beat this little place. We were very pleased with everything and can't wait to come back. Donna and Art are so welcoming. The room was so sweet, decorated with 1920's antiques, yet modern (all re-modeled) and cozy-comfortable. I wish we could have spent all...

My husband and I stayed there in October 2011 and were very comfortable. The warm muffins and coffee were an unexpected surprise. We got married in Galena in April 2012 and suggested the Marcotte family motel to our family coming in from out of town. They had a very pleasant stay and the owners were very accommodating. Thank you for...

We got married in August and had our entire wedding party staying at Marcotte's from Thursday through Sunday. I can't overstate how welcome they made us feel and how many little things they did to make our stay absolutely wonderful. The rooms are neat and clean. Each one is different, but there's a focus on antiques, quilts, and soft colors....

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.

“Rooms detached from the rest of the hotel are larger and good for families. I believe there is a unit with kitchen facilities.”

“We stayed in one of three rooms which are located separately from the main motel, although right across the parking lot. The one we were in was spacious and would comfortably accommodate a couple and one or two children.”
