We came for a weekend in Galena & are leaving having met new friends. Andy & Joyce go above & beyond in taking care of their customers. Nothing fancy but good down home accommodations. The View Motel beats the chain hotels any day. If you accidentally drive by & end up in Elizabeth or Galena it is worth turning around... More

The owners, Andy and Joyce were very welcoming. They have a nice facility with large rooms that are well furnished and clean. They have grills available for guests who wish to cook out and the owners build a nightly fire in the fire pit for socializing with other guests. Elizabeth is a nice town with a couple of very nice... More

We found this motel to be very clean and quite comfortable - more than you might expect for the price. While it lacks some of the amenities that some might want, like a refrigerator in your room, it is more than adequate for the value-minded traveler. The owners are very nice and accommodating when possible, and take pride in keeping... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 15th anniversary and the place was just like home. Andy and Joyce are wonderful people. The room was clean and comfortable. We already have plans to return. We felt so at home. We came as strangers but left feeling like family.

This was not our first visit and for certain not our last. We love staying in the clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. Every year we are excited to see the updates that are certain to be performed. The view is breathtaking and not your average hotel with the outside fire pit and atmosphere. Joyce and Andy are like relatives. Hope... More

My Husband and I, and 15 of our friends pulled into The View Motel on our motorcycles, and were greeted with a friendly smile and cold refreshments! We were all exhausted after the day's ride and were so welcomed, it was like going to a family members home! We had a bonfire going, cold drinks, plenty of seating and great... More

We rolled into The View just after dark the Owners were awaiting our arrival with a bon fire and cold beverages. We checked into our rooms, and all retired to the bon fire area for refreshments and good company, which included the owners. The area is breathtaking, thus the name The View. Motel is as pristine and clean as if... More
