Friend and I was riding bikes from Quadcities to Galenea and we got caught in a major down pour. We pulled into The View Motel looking like drown rats. Andy dried our clothes, gave us towels, offered beverages and even checked the weather forecast. By the time we were ready to leave, it was still sprinkling out, so he offered...

I'd recommend this motel to any rider passing through the area. The owners of this motel take pride in the service they provide to the traveler, and especially the two-wheeled traveler. Keep up the good work Andy and Joyce and thanks for an enjoyable stay at your great little motel. Dan N

The owners of the hotel are great, welcoming people. Very much enjoyed our stay with the nice clean room. We needed to meet friends at the local pub and Andy was gracious enough to give us a ride since it was 3 miles away with no taxi options. Really appreciate their kind nature and desire to make their customers happy.

Owners Andy and Joyce provide service that is unmatched in today's society! They truly make you feel at home. The pride they take in this motel is very apparent everywhere you look. Beautiful flowers and a perfectly manicured lawn. Everything is clean and well kept. We will most certainly stay here again!

We just got back from spending a night here. I would (and have) recommend this motel to EVERYBODY! We were greeted by the owners before we ever entered the building. We were offered a glass of wine or a beer. (Loved that little personal touch!) The room was exceptionally clean. You can tell they take great pride in their business!...

We came for a weekend in Galena & are leaving having met new friends. Andy & Joyce go above & beyond in taking care of their customers. Nothing fancy but good down home accommodations. The View Motel beats the chain hotels any day. If you accidentally drive by & end up in Elizabeth or Galena it is worth turning around...

The owners, Andy and Joyce were very welcoming. They have a nice facility with large rooms that are well furnished and clean. They have grills available for guests who wish to cook out and the owners build a nightly fire in the fire pit for socializing with other guests. Elizabeth is a nice town with a couple of very nice...
