Fantastic value and surprisingly large room with good sized Jacuzzi right next to the fireplace. For such a great price our expectations were significantly exceeded, especially since the Murphy bed was surprisingly comfortable. If you can get a room facing the back of the hotel your balcony is pretty much private. Knocked off one star for cleanliness. Wasn't horrible but... More

We stay here several times a year and have never had a bad experience. Staff is considerate and helpful. Rooms are clean, comfortable and spacious. Our grandkids love the indoor pool. Views are gorgeous. Very quiet and peaceful! Short ride to Galena or Dubuque.

Very nice one bedroom condo with full kitchen, dining area, murphy bed, living room, two televisions, see through fireplace in dining area and bedroom. Bedroom has king size bed. Jacuzzi tub and shower. Nice large lobby with more rustic look, television, large chairs, fireplace, tables, etc. About six miles from downtown but that's why it's more peaceful. Staff excellent.

We arrived late in the evening; the lady at the front desk was not the most pleasant to deal with. The first room they gave us smelled like smoke and she tried to tell us that she would have to see what she could do. In the end, the evening manager (I think that was his title) moved us to... More

My fella and I spent a weekend here over the luminara celebration in December 2015. We loved the Christmas tree and how quiet the hotel was in general. It was a great overnight or two night stay.

We spent Mothers Day weekend in galena and had booked a room at the World Mark Gelena. It was more a suite than a room and the price was very reasonable, possible because it was off season. We enjoyed the area and this will be a great backup for rooms next fall when our daughter gets married out there

What a great area and resort. The area combines old with new. Area offers all kinds of music (with unique local artists). Try Council Hill Station for a rewarding time. Great restaurants (old style dinner clubs are all over!!). Antiquing, shopping, beautiful scenic drives, and more. Just explore! Resort staff is great and on duty 24/7. Rooms are very nice... More

We had a great stay. Our room was small, but perfect for 2 (plus a 10 year old). The Murphy bed was comfy and so was the couch. The fireplace in the room was a nice addition. It was great to set the timer and fall asleep with it going. It would have been nice to have running while sitting... More
