This is a quaint, very cute inn, right on the main street of Galena. It's not a bed and breakfast, but everything is so close by. They do have an open area outside the rooms with microwave and they have assorted granola bars and fruit laid out. Loved it!

Great location on the edge of downtown, friendly service. Suite was large with lots of period character, but with a small bath (characteristic of older buildings). Great efforts were taken by our hosts to lay out snacks and beverages in the upstairs sitting area--nice touch!

Love that you enjoyed our little extra touches! Sounds like you really enjoyed your stay and the best perk of being located directly on Main. Just curious if you could explain more on why you chose the 3 star rating, as we are always trying to better what we do here. Our goal is to always have customers get the...

Main Street Inn is the best place to stay in Galena. Right downtown above Poopsies, within walking distance to everything. Comfortable surroundings. Thank you for a great stay and allowing our group to take over the Inn for the Weekend.

A place to get away with the amenities needed to feel like you relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle. Main Street Inn is the perfect place for that feeling and its location is perfect sonce you can go up and down Main Street to explore.

Walking out our front door right onto Main St is pretty fantastic! Though we always try to be sure that within the Inn feels calm and relaxing. See you again soon!

Very hard to please. This place was over the top. So close to everything. Able to walk down one side of street and shop then come back down other side. Restaurants are very good people are so friendly.

We love the location of the main st inn. Just step right out the front door and you are ready for the shopping on Main st. Parking is free on the street just behind the inn and is not a problem at all. We were in room 4 december 2nd and 3rd of 2016. This was our second stay at...

Thank you for the feedback on the mattress. It is a foam style mattress which many like but we understand may not be for everyone. We always appreciate our return customers and look forward to your next trip again. We can recommend a room without that mattress ;)

Main Street Inn is a unique place to stay. Set up like a bed and breakfast with six rooms above Poopsies on Main Street. Very laid back and quaint furnishings/décor. Many amenities in the common room including a microwave, freezer, refrigerator, board games, and snacks. Upon arrival there was a small pan of cinnamon rolls in the room. Nice touch...

Took our 11-yr-old twice for a getaway weekend, and she loved everything about it. After telling them we were coming for a second time, there was a "welcome back" sign in the room for her. The rooms were full of character, and the giant cinnamon roll waiting for us upon arrival was a huge hit. She loved the games we...

Nice location, right on Main St. Everything was great about the stay. The only negative I would even mention, but is good to know, is there is a very large stair case that you have to climb to get to the rooms. You do have to carry your own luggage up and it is quite a steep staircase, so if...
