Grant Hills Motel is about 5 minutes from downtown Galena. It is very easy to find on US Hwy 20. We booked the room because there were 3 of us and 3 beds in the room! The room was comfortable and clean. The staff were very kind. Outside each room there are 2 chairs and a small table, so you can sit outside and enjoy the countryside. There is a fire pit in back and we didn't allow enough time to take advantage of it. Blame Bros Distillery is about a 2minute walk from the motel. I would recommend this place!

We booked the motel with 2 other couples and were pleasantly surprised!! It’s a no frills motel but the rooms are very clean and (Tammy) the receptionist on Saturday was more than accommodating. She was very professional and entertaining giving us suggestions and ideas of what to do and where to eat. It was very enjoyable sitting out in front of our rooms and visiting. Highly recommend the Grant Hills. It’s not the Ritz Carlton but that’s not what we were wanting. We booked 3 rooms for another couples getaway in October!!

This was an adorable motel located 1 mile from downtown Galena where there are an abundance of shops, restaurants, and bars! The motel shares a parking lot with a great local distillery, Blaum Bros, which is highly recommended. If you are wanting to visit Dubuque, IA, this motel is approx 15 mins away. Check in was easy, and we were able to park our car right in front of the motel door. The room was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The bathroom included a bathtub/shower combo. We were pleased to discover a microwave and refrigerator in the room. There was a laundry option on site and complimentary coffee in the am. An added bonus was the pool, which included a beautiful view of the Galena Countryside. We are here yearly to visit family and would not hesitate to stay here again!
