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 This place is outdated by chain hotel standards.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

This was the second year we reserved a room at Grant Hills over Memorial weekend. We were at a friend's during the day and evening so only a basic room was required. Very comfortable with a small microwave, WIFI and refrigerator. This year, after a reservation for two, my husband did not travel with me so in filling out the... More

We had a room in the back. It is quiet, clean and has a large lovely yard. Perfect for pets and kids! The fresh green grass was right out our door. They had a picnic area with a barbecue for us to use. So very nice. Very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here on a last minute trip to Galena. Very clean room. Loved that there was nothing but open fields behind the motel. Owner was very friendly and answered my questions about what to do and where to eat etc. Would definitly stay here again!

This motel suited our purposes perfectly. Stayed last month as part of a ladies weekend and we were totally satisfied. We only needed a place for one evening, which put Grant Hills at the top of the list (because, after some research, it was just about the only place in town that didn't require a 2 night minimum stay). It... More
