Is there a minimum 2 night stay for weekend nights?
I really do not know if this is a requirement of a weekend stay. You would have to call the hotel and inquire about this topic. Sorry I cannot help in this regard.

Do rooms have refrigerator and blow dryers?
As stated above, we have had two different rooms and neither had a refrigerator. They did have blow dryers in both rooms. We even had a suite with a fireplace. I highly recommend the midweek internet options. They are great money savers and offer a view of Galena without the crowds. The food is fantastic and you can get vouchers from the specials. Vetmanage said it above and I concur, we will not stay anywhere else in Galena. It;s right downtown and offers free on site parking.

No it doesn't have any of those. It has ice bucket and traditional shampoo lotion etc. The hotel does have two complementary water bottles and a small chocolate on first day of arrival.
