Had a very enjoyable stay. Rooms were clean and neat. Great breakfast. The waffles were wonderful. The desk clerk was super friendly and helped us with suggestions of places to go and see. Great coffee and tea bar.

We have stayed here many times over the years and are always pleased. It is no surprise as the quality is ALWAYS there. The location is great, the rooms are clean, and you get the most bang for your lodging buck and couple that with a free breakfast and that is tough to beat.

Nice whirlpool room, close to city, good free breakfast. Take the backroads while in the area, lots to see. The Galena Brewing Company is a must !! The indooro/utdoor pool is very nice, even in cold weather

The cave room is really nice! Very romantic setting with dimmable lighting, whirlpool, sauna, waterfall, and the best shower with multiple jets. Has a walkout deck with a couple of chairs also. The hotel was undergoing renovations of other theme rooms during our stay. However, there was no noise. The breakfast leaves a lot to be desired though.

My husband and I have stay in the Crystal Cave fantasy suite every year and LOVE it!! The room is comfortable, relaxing and romantic. It is wonderful for a nice one-night getaway or a weekend, and really close to all of the shops! We can't wait to check out the other fantasy suites!

As a member of BW, we found BW Galena a nice little gem when visiting Downtown Galena.Good value and just close enough to village. Room was very comfortable and cozy. Their theme rooms sound nice also,must try sometime. We will be returning!

This hotel has been, or is still in the process of being renovated, and at first glance it seems just fine, which it is. It seems clean, the receptionist is helpful and friendly, the morning breakfast is OK (but the coffee is only barely acceptable) and the price is right. HOWEVER, the bed was so very uncomfortable! It was very,... More

A wonderful hotel. Great indoor/outdoor swim through pool. Was a nice place to get away for a night. Within walking distance to a great Irish Pub and within driving distance to downtown Galena IL for some great shopping and dining. Just before you come into town, the hotel had very easy access. The breakfast, though simple, was wonderful and the... More

We reserved a block of rooms for family coming to town for our wedding and beyond a slight booking incident (which the hotel promptly resolved for us), our guests had a great experience and all enjoyed their stay.

We stayed here on a late-season ski trip. They are upgrading. We stayed on the main floor. New carpet and fresh paint. We had a 2 queen bed room and we had a lot of space. Small private balcony off the back overlooks woods. Very clean and very friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was good. We got a good rate... More
