“This is a fantastic place”
Reviewed January 30, 2011

Made reservation by phone. Owner contacted me in a few hours to confirm details. I have stayed at most hotels in the area. So far, I like this one the best.

Checked in at 8 at night, and after pushing "doorbell" was greeted by the friendly owner. Check in took a few minutes and then it was up to the 2nd floor for the room (no rooms are on the first floor, only checkin.

The room (#2) was elegant with with old style wallpaper, old style lamps and a statue or two. It was clean, had a good sized bathroom with nice new clean fixtures and was very well lit.

The pictures on their website and advertisement were nice, but don't do the room justice. We REALLY liked this room.


Breakfast was minimal, with hot coffee (good!) and some bread and pastry pieces. Chocolates were left on the lobby counter all day to snack on.

The Inn was as quaint and unique as the town its self.

Thank you for a great stay.

This is a great place to stay for a weekend getaway right in the heart of historic Galena. Very close to shopping, and nice, clean rooms. I will definitely stay here again next time I visit!

My husband and I had a great experience staying at the Main Street Inn. You can't beat the location, parked the car and walked to shops and restaurants. The room was charming and clean. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the room and private bath were. We have spent a lot more for rooms in Galena and they did not have as much to offer as the Main Street inn.

The location of Main Street Inn is perfect. Walking to all the shops, restaurants, etc. was very easy. The room was comfortable and very nicely decorated. The hostess friendly and helpful, being familiar with the area. I would recommend this to a friend.

Very cozy getaway during the cold December temperatures. We were right down town and within walking distance to everything. Our rooms was clean and comfy. Though there were other guests, it was very quiet and private. Will return again in the Spring.

The girls and I were in need of a little "rest and relaxation" so we packed our bags and headed to Galena. We didn't make reservations anywhere and boy are we glad we didn't! As we were shopping, tasting wine, and have a wonderful time, we stumbled across this small little inn. It was right on Main street, so we were able to park our car and forget it for the weekend! They also served us a quaint little breakfast in the morning with danishes and juices. The girls and I had a wonderful time and the Galena Main Street Inn was a wonderful place to kick back and relax!

There were 7 of us, all women, ages 45-60. Our motorcylce club. We stayed in 2 rooms. We all had a great time and couldn't have asked for better hosts. Enjoyed the entire experience. We need the exercise of the stairs so that wasn't a problem. We are thinking of going back June of 09.The central hall was great for all of us to get together in the evening for some conversation.
