This is my 3rd stay at the Worldmark resort. The resort is located 15 minutes outside of downtown Galena and 25 minutes away from Chestnut Mountain. On this last stay we stayed in a 2 bedroom suite. The master bedroom had a full sized hot tub for 2 people, king bed and a fireplace. The 2nd bedroom had a queen... More

Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile at the front desk from Stacey. She was so welcoming it felt as if it was not our first time at this resort. Check in was fast and she answered all questions we had. She provided us with a genuine customer service and asked us to call if we needed anything. Our... More

We stayed 3 nights at Worldmark Galena (Wyndham) over New Year's Eve on December 31, 2015, in a studio room. This was our second stay there. The room is small but very accommodating and cozy. The Murphy bed, folding down from the wall, was comfortable. There is a fireplace, which is shared by the living room area and the bathroom... More

Six miles from Main St. in Galena so you would have to be alright with that location but the reward is a much quieter experience. Smaller resort than many but a very large pool and nice size hot tub with sauna. Excellent exercise room and activity room with pool table, ping pong table etc, arcade, etc. Excellent, friendly, and helpful... More

Awesome place to get away. Our studio suite was perfect size that included a hot tub and fireplace normally you have to choose between the two for an up charge, these being included made our stay especially nice. The staff made us feel like regulars even though this was our first time but won't be our last. Thanks so much.

We were pleasantly surprised by all of the history in this area. The Civil war era things to see and do was amazing, from museums, stores, homes (including one belonging to President U. S. Grant). The "grotto" in Dickeyville, Iowa is a "must see" if you are in the area. The WorldMark had a little construction going on but the... More

When I was only able to reserve a studio unit for the two of us, I envisioned some fairly cramped quarters. We were happily surprised at the amount and clever use of the space. Upon entering the room, we saw the tiny mini-kitchen and its small set of cabinets and wondered where all of the cookware and cooking and eating... More
