I'm guessing that you want a motel since you didn't mention camping, but just in case you are interested in camping: I camped at the park/fairgrounds in Elroy when I was there a few years ago. Tents $10. RV's $20. The city pool is very close, but I did not use it. The campground has flush toilets, but no showers, showers are available at the trail head, but close about 4pm. Elroy is a freindly, peaceful small town and I enjoyed my stay there very much - four nights in a row without hearing a single siren.
Be sure to have flashlights for the little ones when you get to the tunnels. If it is a sunny day, it will take your eyes a few minutes to adjust once you enter the tunnels, so it is difficult to see anything at first.
The '400' trail south out of Elroy is very flat and has a town every 5-7 miles. While riding it, I was thinking "what a perfect trail for families with small kids!"
