The Main Street Inn is an absolutely WONDERFUL place to stay when visiting Galena. It truly is on the MAIN Street! The lovely, quaint furnishings seem to "fit" this small town, which takes you back in time. I was very impressed with the cleanliness and the nice little touches which make you feel at home. This place is truly a...

I come to the Main Street Inn every year with my girlfriends for a weekend away, and we are never disappointed. We are a large group and rent out the whole inn. The rooms are always clean and the innkeeper takes great care of us. Microwave, minifridge, ice machine, and board games are available in the common area, and each...

I love Galena. Always at least one yearly visit to wander through the shops and admire the architecture. A band of friends was playing a block party there late on a Sunday afternoon and I decided to stay over for said wandering and admiration. Perfect location. Didn't have to drive anywhere the next day. Located in a building built in...

Glad you enjoyed your stay while in Galena. Sorry for the delay in finding us for your last minute reservation. It is for this reason that we do check in by appointment due to our very small size of only 6 rooms. On a good note, this small size is what makes our place so private and cozy for your...

I stayed in the Vista room, overlooking the main street. The decor was Victorian, which was done very tastefully. I had the opportunity to look in some of the other rooms and they too were very nice. Has a nice sitting area, where you could get coffee and snacks.The bathroom was very nice, as were the towels and washcloths. I...

My mother and I spent a weekend at the Main Street Inn. It is in a perfect location in the town of Galena! Once you park your car, you never need it again! The rooms are decorated beautifully. Our accommodations were very clean,quiet,and comfortable. We absolutely loved it! We are looking forward to making this an annual trip!

Couldn't ask for a better location for our two day stay in Galena. The owners were so nice and accommodating and when we walked into our room, it was like walking into a Victorian mansion, May was the perfect time of year to visit Galena. The weather was in the low 70's and the town wasn't crowded, which made shopping...

Great location if you are on budget and don't wish to splurge on overly posh. Amenities were well thought out for the local tourist community (loved the board games, wine glasses, and munchies in the social area!), and room was well-turned out (nice touches in the bathroom). Monster cinnamon rolls were to die for! Staff was more than willing to...

The best for comfort, value and location. Staff is excellent, do all they can to make sure you are happy. We always have a great time when we stay here and now have several friends hooked. The rooms are unique, not a boring chain hotel.
