“Clean Rooms and Cordial Hosts made for a fantastic Holiday weekend!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2009

What a pleasant surprise. The hospitality of the owners, Andy and Joyce, made our Memorial Holiday Weekend much more enjoyable then we could have ever planned for. The rooms were extremely clean and well taken care of. The grounds are well kept with the personal touch of flowers and decorations. We would honestly go out of our way to stay at The View Motel whenever we travel in the area. From the Creme Brulee Group

Nearing the end of a windy day and about 400 miles on a motorcycle, my brother and I spotted this "non-chain" motel just outside of Elizabeth. The property was very well maintained and the husband and wife owners were very friendly and helpful in suggesting places to dine. They even provide their recycled towels for us to debug our bikes after the day's riding. Even being on the highway wasn't bad as the traffic noise subsided early. Satellite TV and a separate room with microwave and snacks.

I stay at The View Motel in Elizabeth, IL. once a year. It is a small motel with a beautiful view. The rooms couldn't be cleaner and they all have brand new plasma TVs with DirecTV. There are chairs set up outside by an outdoor fireplace where you are free to enjoy your own drinks and snacks as well as great conversation. Andy & Joyce, the owners, go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The View is just outside Elizabeth and is within a short driving distance of Galena and Hanover.

We stopped at The View Motel in Elizabeth, IL. It is a small motel with a beautiful view across the countryside. They have chairs set up at the end of the motel for patrons to enjoy the countryside. In addition at night they have a fire pit and chair set outside so that guests can come down, enjoy conversation, bring food and drinks, and just enjoy themselves. The motel has been completely redone by Andy & Joyce, the owners, and it is a comfortable and an attractively decorated place to stay. It is within a short driving distance of Galena, IL and many stay here and go out to Galena, and other scenic sites in the nearby area.
