Staff is very nice and accommodating. Room was clean, beds, blankets, amenities nice. Beautiful country views out windows. We stayed on main level. Walls definitely need more insulation, party animals next room over, did not allow a restful sleep. Hopefully, next time we'll stay on lower level away from the night life, road noise was tolerable:) lol.

Took a weekend getaway with my teen daughter. Although the room was clearly in need of updating, the price was right! We agreed, it was worth having cash to do things than to have a fancy room. We would stay again.

Decent motel, family owned. Very nice people and could not beat the deal for it's location. Right next to Baum's Distillery is a plus. Room is a little small but that is probably the norm for a motel and I'm just not use to it.

I got here late, tired, and dusty. I had a bike race the next morning and simply wanted somewhere I could get a hot shower and a few hours sleep. Grant Hills Motel, just outside the town of Galena, was perfect. It's on a stretch of highway, but the road sounds aren't too intrusive. No bathtub, but the showers are... More

Nice, clean, less expensive. This motel has an outdoor pool, so closed for the winter. That's ok as we were here to wander the stores of downtown Galena. No breakfast but they did serve coffee and hot water for tea or cocoa. Terri at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with meal suggestions. Our room was very nice.... More

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.

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.
