Conveniently located on the edge of town, spotlessly clean, friendly staff. Excellent value. However close to heavily traveled US 20, not for light sleepers. Rooms on back side would not have this trouble.

Awesome little place, comfy and cozy. Staff, awesome and accommodating. Clean, well kept and clean. Great fire pit and pool. Close to all sorts of shops, fuel and food. The price was under eighty bucks a night. Only 5 minutes to downtown Galena. I recommend room 23, it's close to the covered area where you sit out and have coffee... More

I can't tell you how many times we have drove past this Motel wondering how it is. We decided to stay there for a weekend trip to Galena IL and I'm glad we did. It was a very clean Motel with a seasonal pool, laundry and community kitchen. Each room has a microwave and small refrigerator. In the backyard there... More

You get what you pay for.... well worth $67 during vacation season. The Owner/Mgr lives on site. This is an older road side motel that has been updated, albeit the pink bathroom tile. The small room was quite comfortable, with a new, firm mattress, nice pillows, flat screen tv. The wall unit a/c worked well, and quietly. They advertise cable... More

The room was small,only good for 2 people.The pillows in the room are small, I call them baby pillows. No firmness to the pillows at all. I believe we paid around... More

My boyfriend and I stayed the night here and actually were able to book the same day via phone. It's a little bit outside of Galena and doesn't have any frills but the price was way lower than anything else, staff was very friendly and will give good recommendations for restaurants, bars, etc and it was clean. Thumbs up!

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
