This Bed and Breakfast advertises itself as "newly remodeled" and "the best lodging downtown Galena has to offer" neither of which is true. In our experience it was old, uncomfortable, and lacked charm. Breakfast is coffee and a muffin. We had planned a 3 night stay but left after one night. We were the only guests there.

The Inn is very well maintained and comfortable with whirlpool tubs, fireplaces and flat screen TVs. All suites are different with some having kitchens. There is a two bedroom apartment on the top floor with a large covered deck off the back. The Inn was originally build in the 1840's but every room is updated without compromising the charm. It...

304 North Main with its unique character and charm is located in beautiful historic downtown Galena, IL. We enjoyed the spacious, quiet and cozy suite with a full bath and an enormous private deck. This little treasure's luxury meets laid-back get-away in the heart of everything. Price is very reasonable. Exceptionally clean. We strolled out the front entrance and right... More

You can't beat the location of this place. The parking was simple and stay was great. Not your typical B&B, but who cares. Never been my style to sit in group setting and eat. When we checked in, it was easy and inn keeper told us hey I have coffee, pastries, and some small stuff for breakfast, but why compete... More

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
