“Nice rustic themed hotel next to the scenic Illinois River!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We stayed in a whirlpool suite room and it was very very roomy! (It was also cleaned well.)
The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were awesome too!
The room had a couch,, chair/ottaman, desk, fireplace, jacuzzi and a little kitchen area with microwave, fridge,and wet bar.


We also used the pool area.
(They have an adults only swim time and we took advantage of that.)
The pool has a indoor/outdoor pass through which was fun to use, as it was about 35 degrees outside and all the water was still comfortable to swim in.
The whirpool spa next to the pool was huge and very very warm.
A sauna is also available to use but we didn't try that.
Overall the facilities were very clean and the staff was friendly!
Only negative would be that the breakfast items vary (probably according to amount of guests staying there). I have stayed one other time during the summer and the breakfast choices were much better.

Room Tip: 3rd floor ( top) room was very quiet!

My friend, her grandchildren, and I have been staying at Stoney Creek for several years, while in Peoria to see the "Festival of Lights". Although we did enjoy it this year, we did have one complaint. The chairs, both in the room and the breakfast room, were pretty wobbly. They really should repair them before someone sits on one and it breaks.
The room was clean, although there was some dust hanging from the ceiling. We stayed in a bunkbed room, which had adequate space for us. The breakfast was good, except our last day there, they didn't have out the waffle makers. One of the children with us is a fussy eater and was very disappointed that there were no waffles. There are two different hot items each day. I think the biscuits and gravy is some of the best I've ever tasted. The indoor-outdoor pool was enjoyed by all. I like having the hotel located near the river, where we could go for a short walk. We are already planning on going back next year.

We always stay here when in the area. It has the most comfortable beds and a warm atmosphere.
They have adequate parking for our boat and other equipment. They have a small lounge but no dining though there are ample choices within walking distance.

I had my whole wedding party stay here and everyone seemed satisfied. The only issue we had was that there were no screens on the windows so when we were letting some air in (due to all the hairspray while we were doing our hair) the room FLOODED with these giant flying insects. It was bad enough that we had to have all 6 girls staying in the suite relocate to a different room. Fortunately they took care of it, even though it was late at night.

I stayed in the jacuzzi suite with my husband and it was AMAZING. It was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. The jacuzzi was clean and comfortable, just like the rest of our stay. The front desk handed out the welcome bags we provided to each of our guests as they checked in so we didn't have to locate everyone. The breakfast was pretty good, but I wish it was available later. It closed at 9am I think. I just remember hurrying downstairs before they closed it. They locked everything up before my grandmother got to eat. It was overall a great stay. The cozy atmosphere makes me want to go back again and again! You won't find a better hotel in the area.

The only note I will make is that it isn't really setup for business travel. It's more like a cozy retreat style hotel right by the river. It's within walking distance from the pier.

Room Tip: The suites are tucked on the edges of the hotel so it would be unlikely to get two suites next to ea...

The "inn"has a rustic/sports theme.The decor includes some vintage items and some replicas, but they go too far with some of it. Our room was a special upgraded one with golf decor, some of which was cute, a small kitchen and fireplace. We liked the spaciousness of the room and bathroom. The room was clean but was a teddy bear on the bed with a note that we could purchase it for $19.99. I dislike the idea of stuffed animals in the hotel setting.
The bed was neither unbearable nor comfortable. The breakfast included something for almost any diet preference with hot items (a plus).
The pool/spa/sauna needs some updating and repair, and was overrun by kids. Thankfully, the policy allows an hour for adults only.

Room Tip: Room 250 is a more quiet location--off the beaten path. It has a golf theme and a small kitchen.
