Can't top all of these reviews, but they are correct. I stop 2-3 times a year on business in the area and THE VIEW is my home base and home away from home. Andy and Joyce make it comfortable and homey. Tell your friends.....this is the place to stay in Northwest Illinois!!

We often stay at The View Motel when visiting Galena because it makes our getaways even better. Only 15 minutes from downtown Galena and a beautiful scenic drive. Clean, cozy, rooms. Great showers with plenty of hot water and great water pressure. A great view of the hills and countryside from every side of the motel. Consistent updating, remodeling and... More

I have stayed here a few time, usually when I go to the halloween parade in Gamena. Downtown is so congested. This a great place to stay, we stayed there this year and had a blast. location is grat and the view isn't that bad either of the hills.

Very clean comfortable smaller motel with many amenities and friendly accommodations. A great place to stay especially in the fall when the area is ablaze with color. Close to Galena and Eagle Ridge golf resort. A great place to stay for a weekend get away. Thank you Andy and Joyce for an enjoyable weekend.

Bathroom was small but workable; lots of hot water immediately with unbelievable pressure . . massage! Outdoor sitting area with picnic tables, and chairs,with a small fire pit; grill and chairs off to the side... More

Andy and Joyce, immediately, made us feel very welcome when we stepped into the office. Our room was clean, comfortable and everything we needed for weekend stay. We were traveling to Galena for Oktoberfest and didn't want to spend a ton of money on a place in "town". The bed was super comfortable and the shower had great water pressure-two... More

This was one of the nicest motels I have ever stayed in. Andy and Joyce were very friendly and helpful with any requests we had. You can really see how much pride and work they put into their motel. We will defiantly be staying there again. :) On a side note the water pressure in the showers was amazing!

Every year we have a group trip to Galena and ALWAYS have to stay at The View Motel... well because it "IS" THE BEST! Andy & Joyce welcome you from the moment you arrive with their down home hospitality. The rooms are extremely clean, well kept and the Motel itself is immaculate and beautifully maintained. It is a GREAT location,... More
