We had a wonderful experience at the Greenbriar. The owners, Bill & Betty, we’re so kind and knowledgeable. Bill saw that we had bikes, so he told us about a great trail & gave us accurate directions, which was very helpful due to construction in the area. Highly recommend!

This place is so cute and a wonderful place to stay! It's a very short walk onto Main Street and into the heart of Galena. The owner, Bill is incredibly kind and hands on, and clearly takes pride in his establishment! I was traveling from Iowa back to Chicago with my husband and brother when our car broke down just outside of Galena. It needed a tow and we were stuck for the night, but luckily we found Greenbrier! Bill was amazingly accommodating and sympathetic to our situation, letting us stay past check-out on Sunday until our ride home arrived. A complimentary breakfast is included with your stay which was really nice. Overall, a great option for anyone traveling to Galena!

This was a very clean and friendly place. We went mid week so no special thrills but we enjoyed the peacefulness of the place. Even with construction going on, the way it is tucked back in a wooded area kept the noise at bay. The deer coming in the evening was a treat.

My husband and I stayed in a suite and we were thoroughly pleased with our experience. Our warm and friendly host, Bill, personally escorted us to our room to aid in our understanding of the various features of our suite. Additionally, he pointed out the highlights on a town map so that we were able to maximize our stay and our exploration of Galena. Our room was nicely decorated and perfectly stocked with an abundance of amenities to make our stay very comfortable. The morning basket of continental breakfast items delivered to our door was a great feature--no need to leave the room! All-in-all, we thought it was a wonderful base from which to explore and experience all that historic Galena has to offer.

I thought long and hard about what to say & I must be honest: probably wouldn't stay here again. I was treated so rudely by an employee (not the owner) at check-in and throughout my 2-night stay that it really makes it impossible for me to strongly recommend Greenbriar. I think if the owner, Bill, had checked me in, we'd at least be at 4-stars. Instead I had "B&B Karen"--an inhospitable, harried, paranoid and unpleasant employee--who the owner knows is this way and still unleashes her on the public. I shared my experience with Bill and he said others complained about her too. But he's short-staffed. I empathize, particularly now, but the behavior is inexcusable. This was my first trip to Galena, a solo trip. I selected Greenbriar in part because of the great TripAdvisor reviews. But it wasn't for most locations being sold out because of an event I'd have checked out & happily lost the money to stay somewhere I would have been treated better. The room itself was fine, despite an odd smell that I managed to get rid of with an odor absorber and dryer sheets. The bed was comfortable; slept well. Made fast friends with some lovely guests and spent a lot of time enjoying the screened in porch taking in the quiet and the sights. Sadly, part of the bonding with other guests involved how we were all trying to avoid the aforementioned rude employee. Funny, but also sad. Greenbriar is in a great location & has many nice touches. I hope the personnel issues are straightned out soon.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay. Bill was very helpful at check-in since we’ve never been to Galena, sharing all the “highlights” we must see. Very clean and they have everything we could have needed. Thank you for a great weekend!

Bill is an awesome host! Our stay was great from start to finish. The house we stayed in was built in the 1800's, how cool is that? lovely home and very nice room with everything you need for a few nights stay. Main street is within walking distance, didn't drive our car the entire time. Clean, quiet, close to the main tourist area and free parking, can't ask for anything more.
