Amazing place to stay so close to all the shopping. Great hospitality. Lots of things to make you feel at home. Quiet and comfortable and well priced! We went for our anniversary and loved every minute of our trip. Can very easily walk to everything from this Inn.

This is our favorite and only place we stay in Galena. We visit every year during Nouveau Weekend, not to celebrate the wine but to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn is always a great place to stay. We pull into town on Friday and don't have to get in the car until Sunday morning. The innkeeper at the hotel is...

This was only my 3rd year staying at Main Street Inn and it was wonderful as usual. I am very pleased with the Main Street Inn and enjoy staying there. We all have such a great time and the location is fantastic! Can't wait for next year!

This was our 13th year of staying at the Main Street Inn in Galena. All 14 of us are from Wisconsin and spend a girls' weekend in Galena each fall. We have such a great time, we plan on continuing this tradition - well, until we can't! Main Street Inn is very good to us. We rent all 6 rooms...

This inn is next to the trolley stop so offers a nice walk up and down Main Street. The innkeepers are extremely helpful. Though on the 2nd floor, they will meet you and carry luggage up for you, if necessary. There is a selection of 5 rooms of varying sizes. Ours was the smallest but there is a small parlor...

One positive: lots of HOT water. We stayed in the European Room one night 10/6/15. Did not investigate the hotel beforehand. Should have. The place was very shabby. Mattress was very old. Pillows were "broken" - they felt like sacks of flour; I had a stiff neck by midnight. There was a light bulb broken in the bathroom. Tiles on...

This was our second stay at the Main Street Inn. We stayed in the English Room which is a large room with a king bed. The Inn is located in an old brick building, so expect the floors to be creaky and somewhat uneven in places. There is a flight of stairs to the guest rooms and no elevator. There...

The location was perfect -- close to all there is to see and do in Galena -- but still quiet and private. Our rooms were comfortable, very clean and very pretty. It was a swelteringly hot weekend but the Main Street Inn stated cool with central a/c despite it's Victorian charm. We arrived to find a delicious freshly baked Cinnamon...
