Hi there, Thank you for the great review and we are glad you enjoyed yourself in Galena. Being right on Main St is such a great way to take in the downtown. I wish you would have asked for the hair dryer as we do keep them in the lobby for guests as needed. We go back and forth with...

I loved staying at the Main Street Inn. I immediately felt at home. The decor was lovely and my room was spotless! It was neat to be in the heart of Galena. Our visit consisted of two nights. We arrived on Friday and woke up early Saturday morning to walk across the street to the Fever River Outfitters for a...

Lovely inn located right downtown. Park behind and leave your car - walk everywhere (bring good walking shoes). Beautiful rooms, quiet, clean, comfortable. The hosts graciously provide a huge cinnamon roll that does well with in- room coffee. Fresh fruit, tea, granola bars, and instant oatmeal are also set out for guests We used the Trip Advisor discount. Would definitely...

Very nice location for the people who love to go shopping in the many stores, restaurants, and boutiques of Galena. Rooms were super clean, quaint decor, but best of all for me, is it was quiet when it came time for sleep. Our next visit we will stay at the Inn, and probably request the same room.

The Main Street Inn is a "hidden" gem in Galena. My husband and I try to visit Galena at least once a year, and I have walked past Main Street Inn many times before I realized there was an Inn through the door and up the stairs. Stayed there this past weekend and absolutely loved it. It is not a...

We have previously stayed at the Desoto House because of its location, but they were full so we stayed at Main Street Inn. A pleasant surprise! Despite the stairway (which is no big deal) we found our room very nice, and we were in the room with two twins which were really full-sized. They have figured out how to make...
