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

We were greeted by a really pleasant front desk clerk. The room was spotless with a great view. I like staying at "mom and pop" motels and was glad we stayed at this one. Nice back yard also. We will definitely stay here again as my wife gets a hoot out of the Galena area.

This quaint roadside inn was like stepping back in time. We traveled with a bus group and they put our name on their road sign. (We were famous!) They were kind, had coffee in the lobby, but were out of cookies by the time my group within the group got settled. We had 6 people and we were tickled pink... More

We recently stayed here while on a bus trip to Galena. What a wonderful motel! They were so welcoming to our group, had fresh cookies baked for us and hot coffee in the lobby. The rooms had recently been remodeled and our room had a fridge which was very nice. They even put our group name on their sign to... More

Had been by this hotel on our motorcycle a hundred times but decided to try a stay. Immaculate room, complementary coffee, plenty of hot water, functioning TV and refrigerator - what else could you want?? The staff was very friendly and accommodating and welcomed us (on motorcycle) with open arms. (even after I spilled a cup of coffee in the... More

Drove by this motel countless times on visits to Galena and thought it would be a fun, old fashioned place to stay. Read previous reviews and made our reservation. They had an outdoor pool that looked refreshing driving past. We checked in and the first we noticed were the two upholstered chairs in the room had stains on the seats... More

I was recommended this hotel and The View Motel by a friend. I had never stayed at a "roadside motel" because I wasn't sure about how much noise there would be since it's right off Route 20. I looked it up on here and everything described is correct. It's no frills, budget, and very clean and basic. Easy check in... More

We were in Galena for a Family function on a busy, Hot, June weekend. The Motel was easy to get to, just South of downtown on a beautiful stretch of Hwy 20. As we pulled in we saw a bunch of Harley Davidson motorcycles lined up, and my Mother got a little nervous. Our room was neat, clean, the Air... More

My sister in law and I booked two rooms for the 17th and 18th of May. I was going to bring my dog who has heart disease. I was leary but the staff went out of their way to put me in a room where the dog wouldn't be disturbed and where the dog wouldn't disturb others. We arrived at... More

The Grant Hills Motel is an older mom & pop type motel. Maybe built in the 1960's. However the rooms have been updated. The room we had was clean, the bed was comfortable, plus Wi-Fi and cable tv. No breakfast, but that was fine, as most Cont. Breakfasts are not that great. We prefer to have a good breakfast at... More
