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

Now, I also dont think this is a traditional B&B... PROS Great location. Right on main, walk to everything you would want to in... 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.

The Inn is very well maintained and comfortable with whirlpool tubs, fireplaces and flat screen TVs. All suites are different with some having kitchens. There is a two bedroom apartment on the top floor with a large covered deck off the back. The Inn was originally build in the 1840's but every room is updated without compromising the charm. It...

304 North Main with its unique character and charm is located in beautiful historic downtown Galena, IL. We enjoyed the spacious, quiet and cozy suite with a full bath and an enormous private deck. This little treasure's luxury meets laid-back get-away in the heart of everything. Price is very reasonable. Exceptionally clean. We strolled out the front entrance and right... More

You can't beat the location of this place. The parking was simple and stay was great. Not your typical B&B, but who cares. Never been my style to sit in group setting and eat. When we checked in, it was easy and inn keeper told us hey I have coffee, pastries, and some small stuff for breakfast, but why compete... More
