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.

Turn the clock back about 50 years and the result is "The View Motel". Retro furnishings, spotless rooms, very comfortable mattress/pillows, new carpeting, plush towels. 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!

We stayed a night here while on a river road motorcycle trip. The View was definitely the best place we stayed on the trip. Andy and Joyce make you feel at home and go out of their way to be sure your comfortable. After arriving and getting a great hot shower, we spent the evening around the bonfire talking and... More

Room was basic but clean. Internet connection was iffy, but music around the firepit in the evening was great, and the view of the valley is fantastic. Super nice innkeepers, cold beer waiting upon checkin!

It's located about 10 LONG, twisty miles from Galena, right smack-dab on the side of the highway, so you can hear the semi-trucks roaring by. The outside is kind of cute and campy; the inside - not so much. Quite plain and dated, altho I did get a kick out the calendar hanging by the door of my room. The... More

We stayed at the view in September 2014. Andy and Joyce are wonderful owners, they make you feel as if you are at home. Very gracious and accommodating. Rooms are very clean and the view is incredible! We will be staying here every time we head to Galena.
