We enjoyed our stay in the Raphael Suite. The experience was a great value and we had no problems. We were early for check-in on a Sat, but our room was ready. We parked the truck easily walked to and from the downtown area for the rest of our weekend. The in-room whirlpool tub was easy to setup and use.... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice little getaway, just the two of us, and that's exactly what we found at this property! Every need was met and often exceeded. We both remarked on how much more attractive the property was in person than in the pictures online. Don't let the pictures stop you from checking this place... More

This B&B is nothing formal but it was terrific. The rooms are large and very clean and have all the conveniences e.g. hair dryer, shampoo, lotion etc There was a mini kitchen that we could use along with our room. It's in a great location as long as you're not bothered by noise because the street below sometimes gets noisey.... More

We enjoyed our stay at Renaissance Suites. It is located around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the town, ten minute walk. Parking was right across the street. The rooms were nice and comfortable. We never heard our neighbors. We were in room three so we had a shared kitchen. It was nice having a refrigerator available. One... More

Charming bed and breakfast--the rooms were very cute. The hotel is easy to find on Hwy. 20, parking is conveniently located next to the hotel. The cost was less than expected. My friends and I would definitely stay there again.

Priced reasonably. Fair room, nothing fancy, definitely need new beds. Breakfast room - Fair, nice selection of bread, rolls, fruits, bread, room should be set up different so people aren't stumbling around one another. Quaint rear outside sitting areas, need better grounds keeping. Hot tub area very nice (nice idea). On very busy main way / truck route, this creates... More

Sorry to hear you won't be returning. The mattress in this room is 6 months old and is a plush top. Everyone is different when it comes to mattresses some like soft some like hard this one is on the soft side. I was surprised to hear you where stumbling over other guests in the breakfast room. You where the... More

What a cute place! I stayed in the Grey Eagle for a couple of nights for a girls weekend. When I walked in the room I felt like I was back in time. Very large and clean room.

My wife and I stayed here both Friday and Saturday evening. Upon arriving, it was a little tricky getting the key's, but Victoria left notes on how to proceed to the rooms. She left a number to call for any questions. We loved the room, spacious room with bathroom with standup shower. We were in room 2 which was at... More

We have been to Galena many times. By far, this is our favorite place to stay. We love the charm of the Room (Grey Eagle). It has a small kitchenette and fireplace. It is like a mini apartment. The decor fits the charm of the building. The patio is a neat place to sip champagne in the morning and beat... More
