We stayed at the Best Western in town. Overall the visit went well. Clean and neat. Breakfast in the morning provided by the hotel was very good! The only disappointing thing was that the Hot Tub was not working properly. Was told the the water was still hot but the jets were just not working correctly. They had put tape...

Although I didn't see the themed rooms, both the suite rooms and standard rooms are very spacious. The standard rooms have a balcony, and are very large. The suites have a separate bedroom and are also very large. The pool area is quite nice, although the hot tub could use some water (it was below skimmer level.) The pool is...

I looked up this hotel on trip advisor before we canceled our reservation at the Desoto house. It worked out great. When you drive up to the property be aware that it is not the most esthetically pleasing, run down and dirty. The inside which matters is very very nice! Back to the outside. I have traveled many places and...

We booked a last minute trip to Galena for 1 night over spring break. We chose to book an inexpensive room since it was just for 1 night, and the Best Western seemed to have all of the amenities we were looking for. It was also nice and close to downtown. We booked a room with 2 queen beds. The...

Had a super refreshing getaway with my baby at the Best Western in Galena. The Crystal Cave was really really cool. There was an awesome hot tub with colored changing lights and like champagne bubbles from the bottom and jets. There was a sauna, a fireplace, and a totally snazzed out shower with rain and multiple jets. The only thing...

the room was amazingly designed as expected, and the hot tub was working nice, my wife just thought it needed a lil bit of cleaning just the hot tub, the rest of the room was perfect, and everything else was great, place is quite, and no shady people.;) would do it again.

Ok I was a little worried when we booked a Best Western. We are usually 4-5 star hotel travelers. We booked a king bed room with fireplace and whirlpool bath We were pleasantly surprised by the room. It wasn't the largest room we ever had nor the prettiest, but it was very cozy and relaxing. By far the best room...

We loved the log décor, spacious room with balcony. It appears there has been a full renovation with new bathroom fixtures. The breakfast was healthy and well presented. The check in guys looked a bit scruffy.

The hotel was awesome! Breakfast was great, staff were great and helpful. Would stay again but would have to ask about the noise from pipes in the wall that came from the heart fantasy suite, if not gone would have to ask for a different room. The pool is pretty cool that you both inside and outside and even in...

Our check in was great! The Irish cottage inn is next door and it was nice to have had dinner there. The room is dated, the refrigerator was loud, we unplugged it. The microwave is also old. The cleaning personnel is not friendly. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom is nice and seems to be updated (it didn't seem to...
