Our group stopped in for an overnight on our way home. The owner, Andy, was friendly and helpful. The motel clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. The view of the valley from the motel was breathtaking. Given the opportunity we will definitely stay again.

Great place to stay. The owners were so nice and friendly. They went above and beyond to make sure we had anything amd everything we wanted.. They even would bring ice for our coolers. Each night they would light us a campfire and play music. On one of the nights the brought us out everything we needed as a surprise...

We were visiting Galena for a weekend get-away and happened to choose a weekend during a festival. We were fortunate enough to call the View and hear that they had just had a couple of cancellations due to the high heat that weekend. We arrived late in the evening and the owners were fantastic, giving us brief history of the...

Loved our weekend here. Very friendly host and clean updated rooms. View is nice along with the decorations outside. Fire pit and glass of wine they offered were nice too on a chilly night in November.

This is a great place to stay. Andy the owner takes great care of his property and it shows. The rooms are clean with great showers. It is an old motel, but well kept and a great value. We had a large group and he made it a great stay for us. We will stay again.

I have little to add to the other reviews other one more 5-star review to contribute to the average. Stayed for 2 nights for weekend getaway. About 10 minutes from downtown Galena, and 15 from Mississippi Palisades State Park. The room was clean, the water pressure in the shower was stronger than at home, and the hosts were helpful and...

In the vast amount of places to stay in Carroll County...the Galena area - there is a "Gem" called The View. It is run with much attention to detail by Andy & Joyce. They are the nicest couple and take pride in their ownership of the motel. You are welcomed as soon as you pull in with the prettiest landscaping!...

We were so pleased with our stay at The View. The room was exactly what we needed -- very clean, comfortable beds, great shower, thick towels. Andy keeps the lawn just as immaculate. He spends a lot of time on the landscape and his flowers. Joyce and Andy gave us tips on where to go and what to do. We...
