Stayed in the Crystal Cave room and my wife and I had the best stay in years. Hot tub and sauna in the room was great and all the special lighting was pretty cool. Big Shower with all the different spray jets were great. Friendly helpful staff.

The rooms we had were clean and nice but had trouble with the heat in one room. Also, the walls are very thin as is the sound proofing in the ceiling. We heard everything being done in the room next to us and noticed everytime someone walked in the room above us. That made this nice hotel a bit disappointing.

We stayed in the Crystal Cave fantasy suite. It was AMAZING!!! You had the round bed, a spa, sauna, and a huge shower. There was a balcony and stars above the bed and spa. The lighting was great and the fireplace added a nice touch. We had everything that we needed. There was a bluray player and that was a...

The location to downtown Galena is perfect. Also, the Irish Pub is next door and it is a must. But, the hotel wasn't all that great. We booked 3 rooms. My sister had to call the front desk and have someone come up and remove underwear left hanging in the bathroom. In my room there were crumbs under the dresser...

Went here for hubby\s birthday and the room was a themed cave room. It was really awesome. There was a 2 person jacuzzi, a sauna, an oversized shower that you could have a party in with a full waterfall, rainshower system with many jets and a seating area, a fridge, a microwave. You wouldn't even have to leave the room...

My wife and I have stayed here twice they have been updating it and it is getting better and better. We really love their pool and their fantasy suites. We highly recommend The Roman suite The hot tub and the shower were phenomenal. The staff are all friendly and helpful as they can be. While it doesn't look very tantalizing...

Nice accommodations. Stayed in the heart suite, hot tub was nice, shower nice, bed excellent! Nice firm mattress. Room was very clean. Free hot breakfast, cant beat that especially since Galena is a little on the pricey side. Nice distance from downtown. Would stay here again.

The hotel was serviceable. The rooms were large and the beds were comfortable. My main complaint is the thinness of the walls. We could hear people talking, snoring and watching TV from our room. The doors to the rooms provided almost no noise reduction.
