“excellent service at The View Motel”
Reviewed October 17, 2011

The View Motel is an excellent place to stay. It is not too expensive -- the service is superb -- in fact the owners pride themselves on the service and they are on-site in case you need anything -- our room was really clean -- there's a refrigerator and microwave available for the guests -- it was too cold for the bonfire, but Andy builds a bonfire for his guests. You definitely have to make reservations ahead of time because guests return again and again -- We certainly will. It was a relaxing experience without a care in the world.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room. Be sure to ask for smoking or non-smoking.

Had a wonderful two night stay at The View Motel while visiting Galena with friends ,October 2011. We booked the whole motel and were welcomed in by the owners who live on-sight. Very hospitable and looking forward to returning next fall.

Had a great experience staying at The View over the long Labor Day weekend. Don't let the location on the highway scare you, you'll sleep like a baby at night on the super comfortable beds. The rooms couldn't be any cleaner and just the right amount of furniture so you're not tripping over anything. Did I mention the "power shower" which for anyone on a motorcycle is as good as a whirlpool at the end of the day. Andy and Joyce are superb owners and treat you as though they are sharing their home with you. They also can make recommendations for restaurants, must sees,or great side trips. We had the pleasure of sharing s'mores and "a beverage" around the campfire one night with the owners and other guests topping off a great day in the Galena area.

This motel was a blessing to two very tied wives who just wanted some "me" time. Even with the motel right next to a busy highway, once you closed the door it was a peaceful haven. The Management went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed, up to and including a relaxing fire pit. The room was very clean and very comfortable. We have decided to bring our husbands the next time we come to visit Galena, IL. Could not have asked for more!!!

Room Tip: We were second from the office and had no problems with noise or anything. Had a peek at the most ex...

We checked in on a Friday evening and were given a warm welcome, a glass of wine and some friendly conversation. The room was very clean and had everything we needed.

I would highly recommend the view to anyone travelling in/around the Galena, IL area. The service provided by Andy and Joyce (the owners) is outstanding, the hotel is also very well kept and quiet. As a first time customer, I was extremely impressed by the hospitality at the view, so much so that I remarked "my time [there] felt like a weekend with family." I will absolutely return to this superb establishment!!
