I recently stayed at the Main Street Inn for the first time and found it to be a delightful hidden gem. The location can't be beat. The rooms are of good size and quaintly decorated. The Innkeeper and other staff were nothing but pleasant and easy to work with. I couldn't be happier about my stay at the Main Street... More

Love this place! Conveniently located on Main Street it's close to everything. It's like a cross between a hotel and a bed and breakfast, taking the best of each. The rooms are very charming, clean and comfortable. Coffee maker in the room and they included a wonderful HUGE cinnamon roll from the bakery down the street. The bathroom is clean... More

My husband took me to Galena for an overnight anniversary trip (this was my first time in Galena). I picked the Main Street Inn because of the location and reviews. We were not disappointed! We were brought to our suite, given the keys and never saw or heard anyone while we were there. It felt so private, like our own... More

The Main Street Inn is an absolutely WONDERFUL place to stay when visiting Galena. It truly is on the MAIN Street!

I come to the Main Street Inn every year with my girlfriends for a weekend away, and we are never disappointed. We are a large group and rent out the whole inn.

I love Galena. Always at least one yearly visit to wander through the shops and admire the architecture. A band of friends was playing a block party there late on a Sunday afternoon and I decided to stay over for said wandering and admiration. Perfect location. Didn't have to drive anywhere the next day. Located in a building built in... More

Glad you enjoyed your stay while in Galena. Sorry for the delay in finding us for your last minute reservation. It is for this reason that we do check in by appointment due to our very small size of only 6 rooms. On a good note, this small size is what makes our place so private and cozy for your... More

My mother and I spent a weekend at the Main Street Inn. It is in a perfect location in the town of Galena! Once you park your car, you never need it again! The rooms are decorated beautifully. Our accommodations were very clean,quiet,and comfortable. We absolutely loved it! We are looking forward to making this an annual trip!

Couldn't ask for a better location for our two day stay in Galena.
