“Cozy, quiet, worth it”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

Have stayed here twice now. Once two years ago and two weekends ago.

Really like this place. Perfect location for all of your shopping, eating and drinking.

Rooms are large, beds are very comfy, bathrooms are nice ( water pressure in shower was weak ) and staff is on top of everything and helpful.

No need for a bed and breakfast! Just walk out the door and eat in peace and quiet ;)

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

A quick overnight visit to the Galena area brought us very last minute to the Main Street Inn. In (numerous) past visits my wife and I have stayed in more "resort-y" lodgings outside of town, which makes it difficult ending some festive evenings. Here, we were right on the main street of old Galena, just steps away from all the shops, attractions, restaurants, pubs and wine bars. Innkeeper (along with her husband Todd) Alana Turner was friendly and attentive.

Our room was comfortable and clean. (NOTE: we appreciate comfort much more than luxury and some will not find acceptable the very same amenities that we appreciate.) The price was affordable. Although it is not a B&B, there were fruit, granola bars, popcorn, and snacks in the common guest foyer, and an eight cup coffee maker in our room (none of which we used, but it was nice to see).

Unlike past visits, after dinner (at Fritz and Frites -- see my review elsewhere) we stopped at Miss Kitty's Grape Escape Wine Bar for a nitecap, then walked the two or three hundred feet back to the Inn.

It was a last minute trip, and a quick one, but the Main Street Inn helped it to be a very enjoyable and relaxing one. We'll definitely be back.

We stayed in the European Suite...Lots of room, very comfy bed. Great people to work with that give you that "at home touch". The only thing I wish they had was a couple more channels on the TV, not that we spent much time in the room, but we do like a few more options for news. Thanks for everything

This is the second time I've stayed here. We chose a different room this time and like the first one it was beautiful. The Vista room is bright and spacious. Perfectly decorated. Alana greeted us with a smile and is warm and friendly. Great big bathroom and fantastic water pressure. The bed is super comfy and the room has two chairs and a table. Big windows that overlook Main Street. The location of this in is perfect. Already booked our room for next year. Hope to be back before that though!!!

Alana was wonderful! She had our rooms ready early and gave us advice about a few places to visit. The inn was wonderful and I loved that it was so close to all of the cute shops downtown. It was a short walk to many places to eat. My group had an absolutely wonderful time and it was nice to feel like you weren't staying in a traditional hotel room. The inn makes for a great one of a kind experience!

Stayed here for Wine Weekend 2013 and it was beautiful! The whole Inn was amazing and located right downtown. Easy access to everything. Owner was amazing the entire weekend and can not wait to stay again next year!

My sister and I booked this inn for the second time. This year we had the Vista room. It's a corner room and was so bright and had a big bathroom and a super comfy bed. It also had 2 chairs and a table that we used a lot. The location of the hotel can't be beat. Alana greeted us at the door upon our arrival and showed is to our room. She was so friendly and had lots of information. We felt very comfortable there. Can't wait for next year! We already booked our trip for next year at Main Street Inn.
