Stayed for NYE 2017 for one night. Check in was a bit strange. If you arrive prior to 3p you check in and then wait for room keys and indoor fun center until 3p. many folks and their coolers, bags etc. hanging around the lobby waiting for their name to be called to get their keys. Once checked in and...

on a whim, tried the crystal cave room. all i can say is WOW! there are serveral designer suites available at this location, and the craftsman that created these rooms truly did a remarkable job. If you are passing thru, take a chance. Highly recommended for couples! :)

Everything was perfect, we had a fantasy suite and would very much like to do it again! We can not wait to go back and see the newly renovated outside of the hotel along with the new suties they will be adding onto the hotel! We highly recommend this hotel!

I arrived late (actually in the early morning) and the desk staff was very supportive of giving me my upgraded room. The room and service was perfect. The breaksfast was also great. I highly recommend this property.

My husband, my 4 year old and I went for the weekend to go to the German fest. I enjoyed the hotel. It was a spacious room with a fireplace and little sitting area. We used the pool, which no one was in. It has an entrance to the outdoors, so there was a bit of funk that shifted inside,...

nice weekend pleasantly surprised, breakfast was good and the pool was clean. Staff were friendly and rooms were recently updated with nice decor. Location of this hotel was less than a mile from downtown galena which made it even better. Thanks to the staff

My jewelry box somehow ended up under the bed. When I contacted the hotel several days later, it was in their safe and promptly returned to me. After being the victim of an in-house theft at a 5-star in the past, I love to find such honest employees.

He was very helpful and said i could phone back in the morning to talk to a manager. So i phoned in the morning and talked to Lynette, im not sure if...

Check-in was smooth and quick, and the front desk clerk was friendly. The location is convenient to downtown Galena, and there's a family pizza restaurant just across the parking lot. Our room was large and relatively quiet with a small outdoor balcony. No elevator is a pain when you have a bunch of luggage, the stairway is so steep, and...
