This is a great place to stay. Andy the owner takes great care of his property and it shows. The rooms are clean with great showers. It is an old motel, but well kept and a great value. We had a large group and he made it a great stay for us. We will stay again.

The View Motel is a great place. A great value. Andy and Joyce are so nice. The rooms are clean, and nice. Too tired to sit by the fire this trip. I will be back. Location is between Elizabeth and Galena.

About 10 minutes from downtown Galena, and 15 from Mississippi Palisades State Park. The room was clean, the water pressure in the shower was stronger than at home, and the hosts were helpful and...

In the vast amount of places to stay in Carroll County...the Galena area - there is a "Gem" called The View. It is run with much attention to detail by Andy & Joyce. They are the nicest couple and take pride in their ownership of the motel. You are welcomed as soon as you pull in with the prettiest landscaping!... More

We were so pleased with our stay at The View. The room was exactly what we needed -- very clean, comfortable beds, great shower, thick towels. Andy keeps the lawn just as immaculate. He spends a lot of time on the landscape and his flowers. Joyce and Andy gave us tips on where to go and what to do. We... More

Our group stayed at The View this past weekend and we were treated with exceptional customer service. When a group books all of the rooms there is a discount plus we were greeted with a full cooler upon arrival and bonfires in the evenings along with music to our liking. My husband and I also enjoyed staying at The View... More
