Stayed two nights. It's conveniently located to Galena and the Happy Joe's next door was great for takeout. Very nice, large room overlooking the woods in the back of the hotel. Staff was very nice. Plenty of parking. We did not use the pool or hot tub.

Booked my stay through priceline for around 80 dollars a night. Room was very big, clean, and had a comfortable bed. I enjoyed the private balcony and was looking out the back into hillside(if you are looking a private balcony try to get a room on the backside of the hotel, the other rooms balconies look out into the parking...

Second stay here. Rooms are big... Very big, so that is great. A little outdated, but that is also expected as this town is about antiques. They need to do a super-clean... Like taking a vacuum along the walls where carpet meets as there was popcorn and lots of dust behind the night stand. The pool here is great. It... More

We enjoyed Galena's Best Western Designer Inn & Suites over the New Year celebration for a couple of days. We have stayed here several times and are never disappointed. The rooms are beautiful and what is standard here is extra in other places. Keep up the good work !!!

Standard mid-priced hotel. The room was spacious and pretty clean. The breakfast was fine. Its in a great location and for price, I would stay there again. We were skiing at Chesnut for the weekend and it was a quick trip to the resort. I have stayed at that resort before and this place for the price is much better.... More

The worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The rooms are dirty especially the bathroom. My family was also staying in a different room and they told me that they will kick me out of the hotel using the police because I was going to my room after hours which was 10 . I will never stay in here again.

I unexpectedly chose to stay overnight in Galena rather than travel in heavy fog. The Best Western Designer Inn provided a charming room and a comfortable bed at a reasonable price. I'll definitely return and also recommend this lodge to other travelers enjoying the delights of Galena. There's a pleasant fireplace in the lobby and I think the coffee's always... More

We stayed in the Roman Fantasy Suite. The whirlpool, multi-jet shower, beautiful fireplace, and nice balcony were wonderful. All very clean too.The bed was the downfall. It had a low spot directly in the middle. Very hard to stay on your own side when fighting a slope in your sleep. (Not very relaxing after a long day of skiing either.)... More
