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

I booked my reservation approximately 3 weeks in advance and was pretty happy as every other place I called was booked already. We were looking forward to our aniversary two day trip to Galena. As first timers there we wanted to take advantage of visiting everything that was interesting to us so when the owner told me after confirming my... More

My husband and I decided to take a last minute getaway. I was surprised that I called on a Tuesday and was able to get a room for Saturday night. We had a room downstairs. As we rode our motorcycles, the owner told us to ride our bikes on the grass down around the pool and park them in front... More

This motel was good for the price! It was very clean, the beds were comfortable. The walls are very thin! We slept at the back of the motel. We didn't hear any of the highway, which was what we were hoping for. We did, however, hear the people above and to the sides of us: a child running above us... More

We stayed here in Galena, and for the money was pretty nice. A little dated, we stayed downstairs, which actually meant you had a door opening to the rear of the motel, which wasn't a bad view. Not far from town - a mile or so, but not walking distance to the shopping area. Would recommend staying here .

For the money, you just can't beat this place! The owner/manager is very friendly, the room was clean as a whistle, and I slept like a baby the first night--despite the fact that it is right next to busy highway 20. If all you need is a clean, comfortable place to rest your bones--this is the place for you! The... More

I read some the bad reviews of this motel and I must say they have high expectations of a mom & pop place like this one. The people are friendly and the rooms are clean. This place is outdated by chain hotel standards. However, as stated, it was clean. We were very comfortable and slept well. The shower worked great,... More

This motel is not fancy but it is clean and reasonable. The weekend rates in Galena increase about fifty dollars, but not here. The staff is friendly, and there is good coffee in. The lobby in the morning. Will definitely stay again.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my mom for her birthday. Neither one of us had been to Galena before this trip. Definitely will be back to this hotel next trip. The owner is wonderful. She called me by name everytime she saw me. Hotel is very clean, nice pool area, large back yard with a grill and picnic area.... More
