“Comfortable, clean and pride in ownership and customer service.”
Reviewed 28 May 2012

The pride in ownership and customer service definately are at The View Motel. Andy and Joyce made our Memorial Day weekend very comfortable. The motel is clean and very well kept, the customer service is outstanding! Biker friendly you can park your bike right at your door, great outdoor space to enjoy the views. Will for sure make this an annual getaway for us!

Andy and Joyce are so nice and helpful! We had a group of 6 and The View was perfect for us. We were able to gather outside by the fire in the evening and enjoy each others company. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The landscaping and views are fantastic. Our family will definitely stay at The View the next time we are in the area!

My husband and I just took a motorcycle ride to the Galena area for two days and spent our night at the View Motel, between Elizabeth and Galena. Manicured to perfectionist and lovely owners, Andy and Joyce! Room was large and very comfortable, just to mention how clean everything was! We will be back for another stay and hopefully for a longer stay. Breathtaking views also and price was not bad at all, compared to the prices in downtown Galena. Andy and Joyce, we will be back and wish you a wonderful summer season. (Beth & Bud)

Our stay was great! We felt like long lost friends from the moment we pulled in the driveway. Andy & Joyce are so nice & invited us to sit outside with them & visit. The homey atmosphere was just what we were looking for. We were going to Galena & didn't want to pay the high prices in town. The rooms were clean & the water pressure was fantastic. When we got there, they showed us around the property. Also with your stay, you get a free bag of ice & complimentary drink: wine; beer, pop, etc. What a relaxing weekend we had! We will definetely go back. to The View Motel. Thanx Andy & Joyce,
The Bodeen's

It may see unbelievable, but all those fantastic reviews of this motel are right on the money. While it is "on the beaten path" to Galena, it would be easy to miss. If you're going to Galena and are just a little put off by the prices of the rooms in town, try The View. You'll be glad you did, and it may just become your first choice for a place to stay when you return.

The View Motel was a wonderful experience. I stayed at The View this weekend when it was cold and rainy outside. After being downtown all day and at my son's campsite until dark, I was a little nervous to go to a Motel by myself, but I had met the owners earlier and they made me feel safe knowing they were right on the Motel grounds. They even told me to come and get them if I needed anything, What great personal service! I jumped into the shower and could not believe the water pressure, it was better than my shower at home. My experience at the View Motel is the reason this cold rainy weekend was not spoiled. Thanks so much! See you next year.

This was our second stay at The View while visiting the beautiful Galena area. Andy and Joyce are the nicest people you can stay with in the area! Service and hospitality are the best! Thanks to you both for a wonderful weekend away! We can't say enough to our friends and family about what a lovely time we've had when we have visited the Galena area! Hope to see you again this year! The Doggett's Ankeny, Ia
