My daughter and I spent the weekend! Perfect location to walk and shop for the day. Near the nightlife so convenient. Nice and large rooms with character and charm make this a place I would come back to again!

My wife and I were in Galena this weekend for our anniversary and stayed at 305 North. Over the last 2 months I had been emailing back and forth trying to set up an "Anniversary Package" where he would have flowers and a bottle of wine in the room for us when we arrived. He gave me the options, I... More

Checked in on a Friday afternoon for the weekend and met the proprietor (friendly but unusual). Checked in and saw the suite, nothing fancy but roomy and no apparent dirt/dust. This suite had a fridge and stove. The freezer had a severe case of frost build up which had been neglected. Glasses in the cabinet were still a bit wet... More

Staff bent over backwards to make sure we were taken care of. We left a "FitBit" in the room and they mailed it to us within a few days. The 2 room suite overlooking main street is very nice. I would definitely stay here again when visiting the nice midwest town.

we arrived in Galena late, as we drove 2 hours to get there after work. Suite 7, where we stayed was dirty. Towels were musty! All of them. The room hadn't been dusted in weeks, or the bathroom cleaned. The complimentary hairdryer was under the sink...on top of the plunger for the toilet. Their idea of a continental breakfast is...

Came to Galena for a long weekend to celebrate a friends birthday. Pulled into Galena around 3:30pm only to find the front and all back doors locked up tight. We were waiting for two others so we thought no problem we will go have a drink and call the place. When I called a gruff sounding crabby pants answered the... More

Stayed here for a long weekend in Galena. We were interested in staying close to Main Street and this location was awesome. The room was clean and had everything we needed. When I go on vacation, I don't live in my room, so this was perfect for the evenings. It's an older building so it creaks and you hear people... More

This is a make-shift hotel, not a B&B. There was rarely anyone at the desk if you needed something. The Breakfast was all but non-existant, and coffee was not available until after 8am, and then only for a short while. The room was ok, but rather warm, with no heat adjustment. When we arrived we had trouble finding an unlocked... More

This Bed and Breakfast advertises itself as "newly remodeled" and "the best lodging downtown Galena has to offer" neither of which is true. In our experience it was old, uncomfortable, and lacked charm. Breakfast is coffee and a muffin. We had planned a 3 night stay but left after one night. We were the only guests there.
