We had a great time at The View Motel! The hosts Andy and Joyce are so gracious and provided so much more than a place to sleep. We felt very welcome and felt like we were coming home to fantastic hospitality. The motel is very cute and decorated so nicely with up-to-date furnishings. There is a fantastic view of the... More

My stay at The View Inn was a surprise from my Mister. From the moment we pulled in it was breathtaking. The outside of the Inn and the grounds are the closest thing to perfect as I have ever seen.

This place is great! The owners couldn't be nicer and the room we had was very comfortable and very clean. When you see the surrounding landscape you will quickly realize why they call it The View. One of the coolest places I've stayed in a long time!

Our group stopped in for an overnight on our way home. The owner, Andy, was friendly and helpful. The motel clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. The view of the valley from the motel was breathtaking. Given the opportunity we will definitely stay again.

We were visiting Galena for a weekend get-away and happened to choose a weekend during a festival. We were fortunate enough to call the View and hear that they had just had a couple of cancellations due to the high heat that weekend. We arrived late in the evening and the owners were fantastic, giving us brief history of the... More

Loved our weekend here. Very friendly host and clean updated rooms. View is nice along with the decorations outside. Fire pit and glass of wine they offered were nice too on a chilly night in November.

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.
