The owners of the hotel are great, welcoming people. Very much enjoyed our stay with the nice clean room. We needed to meet friends at the local pub and Andy was gracious enough to give us a ride since it was 3 miles away with no taxi options. Really appreciate their kind nature and desire to make their customers happy.

Owners Andy and Joyce provide service that is unmatched in today's society! They truly make you feel at home. The pride they take in this motel is very apparent everywhere you look. Beautiful flowers and a perfectly manicured lawn. Everything is clean and well kept. We will most certainly stay here again!

We just got back from spending a night here. I would (and have) recommend this motel to EVERYBODY! We were greeted by the owners before we ever entered the building. We were offered a glass of wine or a beer. (Loved that little personal touch!) The room was exceptionally clean. You can tell they take great pride in their business!... More

We came for a weekend in Galena & are leaving having met new friends. Andy & Joyce go above & beyond in taking care of their customers. Nothing fancy but good down home accommodations. The View Motel beats the chain hotels any day. If you accidentally drive by & end up in Elizabeth or Galena it is worth turning around... More

The owners, Andy and Joyce were very welcoming. They have a nice facility with large rooms that are well furnished and clean. They have grills available for guests who wish to cook out and the owners build a nightly fire in the fire pit for socializing with other guests. Elizabeth is a nice town with a couple of very nice... More

We found this motel to be very clean and quite comfortable - more than you might expect for the price. While it lacks some of the amenities that some might want, like a refrigerator in your room, it is more than adequate for the value-minded traveler. The owners are very nice and accommodating when possible, and take pride in keeping... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 15th anniversary and the place was just like home. Andy and Joyce are wonderful people. The room was clean and comfortable. We already have plans to return. We felt so at home. We came as strangers but left feeling like family.

My husband Adam and I stayed from May 22nd-May 25th for our 15yr anniversary and it was wonderful. We were greeted at our arrival with a cold beer and wine. The View feels just like home. Clean and comfortable. Owners Andy and Joyce are fantastic people. The fire pit was a great area to enjoy conversations with other guest and... More

This was not our first visit and for certain not our last. We love staying in the clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Every year we are excited to see the updates that are certain to be performed. The view is breathtaking and not your average hotel with the outside fire pit and atmosphere. Joyce and Andy are like relatives. Hope... More
