The hotel is a beautiful bed and breakfast with tailored service for us! I reserved a larger suite for a girls' getaway in the middle of the week and we had the place all to ourselves. The owner was so sweet, kind and tailored the complimentary breakfast to fit our needs as we were the only ones there! He assisted... More

THere is no shortage of B&B, Inn, or hotel options in Galena, and it is rare that we stay at the same place twice, though we go there a few times a year. 305 North is an exception, however. It is a lovely 8 room inn right on main, convenient to all the shops and restaraunts downtown. This is what... More

My husband and I took our 9 month old to Galena for a long weekend. I read the reviews below AFTER I booked the room and when it was too late to cancel. I was apprehensive when we arrived that the place would be a dump. It was not. It is an old building (duh it is in Galena) and... More

this place is now called 305 North. it is no B and B. if you like paying hard earned cash for a place with dirty floors,scummy bathrooms,and a truly 1970's motif, please, be my guest..but Galena has alot more to offer than this place for hospitality.

The ONLY good thing about this place was the location.We arrived about 11AM, no one around. All the doors were locked. Was told to come back later to check in because they were "out". There was no breakfast to speak of, ran out of kleenex in the first few hours, no more in the room. Had to find another roll... More

Excellent place to stay on Main Street. There were 5 ladies total - 3 in Suite 3 and 2 in Suite 4. This is a very clean, comfortable place to stay. Suite 3 had a living area, kitchen, outside deck with stairs to the parking lot. Plenty of room for all of us to hang out until the stores opened... More

We arrived to check in and the manager was more worried about getting to his dinner than helping us. We stayed in one of the basement two bedroom suits the rooms were small and sparsely decorated, the furniture appeared to be second hand and the appliances were outdated at best. The basement was also crawling with spiders. As we were... More

We picked 305 North for our anniversary trip to Galena for a variety of reasons: 1) located within walking distance of the many shops, bars and restaurants of Galena, 2) whirlpool hot tubs in every room, 3) didn't look like it was decorated by someone's Grandma and 4) priced within our budget. In addition, the rooms have (gas) fireplaces and... More

We loved spending our honeymoon at 305 North B & B ( Carrie's Vintage Inn ) in Galena, Illinois. We have traveled all over the the world and the U. S. and have never been treated like royalty before like we were treated by our hostess and host at 305 North B & B, we felt like a king and... More
