I stayed in the Grant Hills Motel for one night. I like the fact that the motel is a little bit out of town as it appeared to be on a quiet stretch of the road and more out in the country. Our motel window view looked out onto a field. The rooms had a nice big window in the... More

Pretty much what I expected when I booked this room. Nice little family business. For an established motor lodge they have done some nice renovations. The rooms are small but clean. The bathroom is extremely condensed, with a shower that barely allows you to turn around. It is an okay stay for a short stay. Our biggest complain was a... More

For the very expensive Galena area this hotel is a good value. Sparse amenities but it's a clean place to rest your head. (no shampoo) An easy drive to any shopping or sightseeing. Not walking distance from anything, so plan to drive. Friendly staff that know the area can help you figure out how best to spend time in Galena.

The sign outside boosts that it has the simple amenities of home and that it does. We booked three rooms for the hotel several months ahead of time and when we went to check in, they only had reserved two for us. So we all squished into the two. Our fitted bed sheet didn't stay on the bed throughout the... More

We chanced upon this motel on a drive from Florida to Minnesota with all the pets (a small dog, a cat, and a caged bird) in tow, and we could not have been happier with our great luck. The location is quiet and the room was attractive. It was wonderful to be able to park near the door, and the... More

We have stayed at Grants hill motel multiple times for Halloween weekend. Galena hosts a great night parade. Hotel is older, but clean comfy and reasonably priced. Staff is so friendly and sweet, treat you like family.

We recently stayed here during a weekend getaway to Galena. The room was fairly clean but had an odor. We think the odor may have been the mold growing above the shower. The person who checked us in was pretty friendly but the person working when we checked out was very rude and short with my husband. This is a... More

We stayed here this last weekend for business and pleasure. Grant Hills was very clean and close to the downtown area. Check in was smooth and we got in and out in no time, the bill and prices were clearly stated when checking in. We had a room at the back of the hotel and the rooms had plenty of... More

This place, a mile outside downtown Galena, must've been built in the 50's. It's clean, but old-fashioned. Definitely not rundown, but if you're a modern businessperson on the road, choose somewhere else to stay. It has lousy wifi ("We've been having trouble with it, and it's supposed to be fixed, but I don't know when"). I had to move the... More

A no-frills roadside motel, perfect when you just need a place to sleep while visiting Galena. It was very clean, as other reviewers noted,but both our room and the lobby had a weird, slightly sour smell. We'd acclimate to the smell after a bit, but it always struck us whenever we left and came back. The motel is just a... More
