Our friend said that our room felt like Grandma's house. He was right. All the decor was retro...not trendy retro...real retro. ""Room"" 7 had a separate bedroom, full bath, living room, full kitchen, & back deck. The motel is about 30 minutes from Mississippi Palisades State Park & Apple River Canyon State Park and is only 15 minutes away from Galena. The owner, Donna is a very nice woman. She greeted us with a smile and a recommendation on where we could get ice cream (Emerald City Ice Cream Parlor in Hanover). At 7:30a she left fresh coffee and muffins at our door. There were 4 adults and a DOG in our party, and we slept very comfortably in room 7. There was a double bed & a trundle bed (2 twin beds). It was a great little old fashioned family motel. We would definitely go back.
Pros: Allows dogs, full kitchen in room 7, & close to Galena and state parks!
Cons: If you're looking for high end style, this is not the place for you.
