John and Marie Krohmer owned a large farm two and a half miles east of the Village of Elizabeth, and in about 1960, they built the motel on a few acres of it, opening it under the name of J & M Motel. A couple of years later, they built a restaurant.
As John and Marie got older, they turned the building into apartments by adjoining rooms and adding kitchens. The restaurant was also converted into a permanent rental with a laundromat in the lower level. It was left like that through another ownership.
In 1994 Art and Donna Marcotte, bought it and slowly started converting back into motel units. Many years later, we have developed the property into single units, doubles and kept two units with a kitchen. The exterior received a face-lift with log siding and the one-time restaurant was converted into three spacious rooms (rooms 8, 9 and 10). It is now owned and operated by Arthur Marcotte.
