This was our third stay at The View. We were met with Pinot Grigio on arrival, a clean room, an extremely comfortable bed, and super nice owners all at about a third of what it would cost you to drive a little further into "the territories" to rest your weary head. Bonus to Chestnut Mountain visitors is that this establishment... More

Andy and Joyce the owners are wonderful people. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and well taken car of. Impressive since I'm a business traveller that only stays at Marriotts. This is my choice hotel to stay at with the kids during ski season. 12 minutes from chestnut!!

When we came in late last night we were greeted with a glass of brandy which was very nice considering our truck was stuck in a ditch down the road. The owners actually offered to take us to our truck in the morning. Very hospitable. Clean room, great service, and really good showers.

My boyfriend and I needed a place to stay equidistant from Hanover and Galena and we were lucky to book at the View Motel. We stayed in their larger room, the Essex Room, because it was a special occasion. Owners Andy and Joyce were very welcoming, offering us a bottle of wine and even having us over to their home...

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.
