4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed in the double queen room... The room was perfect- we had a couch & table/chairs! The hallways have a different smell to them! We had a blast mini golfing, going down the alpine slide & zip line! We ate at both the Summit & Sunset Grille- which both were AMAZING! Such a beautiful place & very relaxing!

The staff was pleasant and helpful from booking, to checking in, to answering questions about activities in the area, right through check out. The room was clean and had been recently updated, as did the entire resort. It was great fun to take a ride on the lift and get an arial view of the area, just breathtaking. The location... More

Came for a get away with my boyfriend. Hotel is so clean! The grounds are beautiful. Went to the restaraunt for breakfast each morning. We got engaged on the ski lift - which has an amazing view. Galena is beautiful and it was a good distance away from downtown, but easy to get too.

Who knew there was a Chestnut Mountain in IL? Now it is not a Rocky Mountain type skiing experience, but from the looks of the slopes, it's challenging for a Midwesterner. The resort is very well maintained, the grounds are immaculate. Lots to do for couples or a family, even in the non-skiing season. The staff is wonderful!

Great views but the hotel is away from the main city with a very windy road connecting the two. Its a decent hotel if you want to stay there and relax with no outside connectivity (including sketchy cell phone coverage) but getting anything done is going to be challenging. We went on Labor day weekend and the place was packed... More

We planned a last minute Labor Day getaway. The room was large and clean. If you are looking for a high-end resort, this isn't it. It could use updating, especially the shower, but was comfortable. We loved the views and outdoor activities including the Alpine slide and Soaring Eagle zip line. Mary at the check in desk was friendly and... More

Rooms small &outdated. The free WiFi is difficult to connect to and does not automatically reconnect when you leave and come back. Wait staff awful and items on menu not available. Not resort quality.

This hotel is going to get a great review for two reasons. The view is OUTSTANDING. It's absolutely breathtaking. Also, we forgot that when we booked the hotel on their website we jokingly asked in the special requests to have a framed picture of Emilio Estevez on our bedside table. They followed through and the second we walked into the... More

We stopped here on our way to Galena and decided to try the slide and the Segway tour. The slide was ok. It was $8 for one ride down the slide and back up via the sky lift. We surprisingly really enjoyed the Segway tour with Destiny. My husband and I had a blast on them and would have gladly... More
