The Goldmoor is tucked back in the county and offers a feeling of seclusion while being close to Galena. I stayed in one the guest cabins, which was a cute 1-bedroom free-standing cabin with a kitchenette and living room area. It was similar to having a vacation home rental, but with the services of a hotel. It also had great... More

We booked the Goldmoor Inn last minute because other places we were looking at were completely booked. I was a bit nervous after reading the only recent review that made it sound like the place had completely fallen apart since the property is for sale. The Goldmoor Inn far exceeded our expectations. We stayed in the English Country Cottage and... More

This place is so romantic. Each room is so unique and the staff is super friendly. My husband and I went here to celebrate our 7 year anniversary. We stood in one of the cottages. We have stayed here twice and both times were truly memorable.

My husband and I have been staying here each year for 4 years. We will not be going back. Since the death of the co-inn keeper, Patricia has really cut back. The room was not cleaned as it normally would have been, I actually wrote "Dust Me" in the layer of dust on the headboard. The ceiling fan was not... More

Included Goldmoor on a trip to Galena. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful. Wish we had earlier reservations, so we could have enjoyed the scenic view. The only negative is the distance from downtown Galena. The taxi ride was much more than we expected.

My husband and i got married in 2012 in the Goldmoor Inn and we could'nt have chosen a better place for that! It was the perfect day in the perfect location which can't be more beautiful, right next to the Mississippi. The Hotel itself is very well cared for, the rooms are just a dream come true. Very elegant and... More

Goldmoor was wonderful to me and my girlfriend (who left as my fiance). I had called less than a week before I was hoping to book and was pleased that they had a room available still. I spoke with Erica on the phone and she was super helpful. I knew I wanted to propose that weekend but wasn't sure what... More

We took advantage of the Goldmoor's November special.....getting a free day if your stay included a Tuesday. We were in the Irish Cottage which was very nice and the unique shower was a plus. The fireplace was nice on the chilly November evenings. Even though the furniture was starting to show it's age...it was still cozy and comfortable. The breakfast's... More

We stayed here for our anniversary. Because of the rave reviews and the pictures this place looked fabulous! As they say don't judge a book by it's cover. We arrived after dark and the entrance is not clearly marked as others had pointed out-we just assumed we were using the correct door (to their credit there was lighted greenery around... More

This was indeed a fantastic experience. The food, presentation, and service was exceptional. Our server Sue was very attentive to all of our request and needs. This is a must visit if you decide to come to Galena. I know that I will dine here again. Fantastic experience in every area. Gwendolyn O.
