Don't let the word motel scare you off! this place is well kept, immaculate, has friendly staff, and an awesome location. The room I stayed in has a queen bed, table with chairs, a huge TV, fridge, and a good sized bathroom. The motel has a front porch area with tables and chairs right out front for every room. It...

The staff was very friendly and the manager went out of her way to make our stay outstanding. The cleaning staff included little features that you would expect at a high end hotel. We enjoyed the opportunity to sit outside our rooms in the evening with the table and chairs and enjoy the outside and relax. Though there was enough... More

This is a "Bates motel" type of motel, one story, enter your room from the outside. Our room was not very big and the bathroom and shower were tiny. However, the price was more reasonable than any other place in Galena, and the place was exceptionally clean, and that by far is the most important thing. Also had a flat... More

I love the country views here! Very comfortable and clean, just right for an affordable, pleasant stay. The antiseptic smell was a little strong, but not overwhelming. Since I use essential oils, a little atomized essence in the air cleared it up nicely. I will sleep well...It's just that kind of place...homey! The attendant Mary recommended a quiet, off the...

We visited Galena over this Memorial Day weekend and the Motel was a pleasant highlight to the trip. There was a small mix up in checking in that was solved quickly and I was impressed that the hotel had a plan to fix a room mix up...that alone would make this an option for a return visit. The room itself... More

The hotel is located 1 mile from Galena, right on the highway. Great location! The room was reasonable and comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. This hotel has been around awhile and it appears the owners have done a good job to keep it modern and clean. We liked the large flat screen t.v. and the wi-fi worked... More

Luminaries and dinner in Galena made our weekend visit wonderful. The motel was great and we would go back any time. The staff made us feel welcome and were quite helpful giving us hints on what to do in the downtown areas.

We need to stay just one night in Galena and most hotels there want you to book for 2 nights. Grant Hills work out great, just 2 miles from down town. Just a place to sleep. It is dated but clean (enough). Beautiful view. Quiet but you can hear your neighbor below you, if they are loud. We were on... More
