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

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 .
