We enjoyed our stay very much. This is a very charming and reasonable option for accommodations in Galena. We did not want a B&B or a standard hotel room. This was perfect. The rooms ( there are only 6) are located on the second floor of a building at the end of Main Street closest to the Floodgates. Easy walking... More

Loved our room. While they are very clear on their website that they are not a B&B, they still provided coffee & tea, fresh fruit, instant oatmeal, and snacks. My mom and I enjoyed the cinnamon roll that was in our room the first day. It was huge, it lasted us 2 days. Very nice gesture. We had to call... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Vista Room (#2) at the Main Street Inn during our most recent trip to Galena. I can not begin to describe how much of an amazing time we had staying at this cute inn. From the very beginning all the way to check-out the Inn Manager, Myriam, was so sweet and extremely helpful... More

We stayed in this Inn because it is right on Main street and you can walk everywhere, to shops, historic sites, and restaurants. The Inn does not have parking,but you can park on Water Street, behind the Inn, for free all day and night. We stayed in the Garden room because we needed two beds, but i would not recommend... More

We stayed in Galena for just one night and wanted to stay near Main St. but didn't want to stay in a bed and breakfast. The Main St. Inn was perfect, the staff could not have been more friendly. The room was very comfortable and extremely clean.

There are 6 rooms, all located upstairs. No elevator; not a problem for us and Alana (the owner) made sure we knew this before we booked with her. Check-in is set up ahead of time with Alana, or one of the staff from Poopsie's will meet you. It's all very down-home friendly. We had #4, the European Suite. When we... More

Have stayed here twice now. Once two years ago and two weekends ago. Really like this place. Perfect location for all of your shopping, eating and drinking. Rooms are large, beds are very comfy, bathrooms are nice ( water pressure in shower was weak ) and staff is on top of everything and helpful. No need for a bed and... More

A quick overnight visit to the Galena area brought us very last minute to the Main Street Inn. In (numerous) past visits my wife and I have stayed in more "resort-y" lodgings outside of town, which makes it difficult ending some festive evenings. Here, we were right on the main street of old Galena, just steps away from all the... More

We stayed in the European Suite...Lots of room, very comfy bed. Great people to work with that give you that "at home touch". The only thing I wish they had was a couple more channels on the TV, not that we spent much time in the room, but we do like a few more options for news. Thanks for everything

This is the second time I've stayed here. We chose a different room this time and like the first one it was beautiful. The Vista room is bright and spacious. Perfectly decorated. Alana greeted us with a smile and is warm and friendly. Great big bathroom and fantastic water pressure. The bed is super comfy and the room has two... More
