Drove by this motel countless times on visits to Galena and thought it would be a fun, old fashioned place to stay. Read previous reviews and made our reservation. They had an outdoor pool that looked refreshing driving past.
We checked in and the first we noticed were the two upholstered chairs in the room had stains on the seats of the fabric. Not one stain but, several dark stains on both chairs. The carpet was dark brown so who knows if that was clean...we wore flip flops. Then, we folded back the bedspread and saw there were dark stains on the backside corner. Does housekeeping ever check this? It was disgusting. We tossed it into the corner of the room. The sheets and blanket were clean. The bathroom looked clean enough at first glance until you looked into the corners...it needed a bucket of bleach poured over it to clean the dirty corners. Bath mat was folded and placed on top of the toilet seat cover. Who does this? Towels were threadbare. We were staying 1 night so, as long as the sheets were clean, we stayed. Our plan was to go for a swim before we went to dinner. There was a group of questionable characters sitting on chairs near the pool entrance and they were well into their afternoon beer drinking. It was intimidating so we chose not to swim (it was a hot day and no one else was in the pool) went back to our room and sat on the bed, laughing at our disappointing choice in motel. Would not stay here again.
