Eagle Ridge Resort & Spa
Ranked #7 of 11 Hotels in Galena
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I spent our 1st anniversary weekend celebration at Eagle Ridge in one of the 1-bedroom townhomes. The townhome was beautifully decorated and very spacious: full kitchen, sectional couch w fireplace in living room, and a huge king size bed. Our favorite part was all of the windows! Amazing views from every room. The living room and bedroom faced the lake, so pretty. Our location was # LA14. When we arrived I discovered there was not a DVD player in the room which was problematic cause I had made a wedding DVD for my husband. I called the front desk and maintenance delivered one within 30 mins. We ordered room service one afternoon for a late lunch which was good and reasonably priced. The pool in the main lodge is huge with a basketball net, sauna, steam room, and even a tv! We had lunch at Paisanos, excellent food and very nice people. There was a pumpkin patch w free pumpkins for guests and a general store which stocked everything u could possibly need. Outside of the resort, we went to downtown Galena for PT Murphy's magic Show! It's a MUST see!! Had dinner at the Log Cabin which was the best meal we have had in a very long time. I highly recommend the surf & turf. We
had lunch at Goobies. More good food. And spent several hours walking around looking at all of the unique shops. Overall, I'm very pleased with the accommodations and service at Eagle Ridge and really enjoyed Galena as a whole. Definitely an anniversary to remember!!!

Stayed here for a local wedding. During our stay resort celebrated 30 years of existence. Our room was nice and quiet. All amenities worked...air conditioning, shower, TV, etc. not the most fantastic room I've ever been in but comfortable. Coffee at the little shop was reasonable and not overpriced. The breakfast buffet was a bargain. Almost all the food was hot and well done. I appreciated not finding powdered scrambled eggs! Have stayed here before Ina. Rental house, which we loved. Wouldn't hesitate to return to the resort if occasion called for it. Perhaps now that they have celebrated their anniversary they will begin to update so e of their stuff...

This resort is set in one of the most beautiful areas of the Midwest! Absolutely fantastic in Fall or winter. Rooms, cabins,homes to rent. Fireplaces and everything you'd want for a retreat.
Don't miss eating at their restaurants either!

Room Tip: Get a room in the detatched lodge, or a condo.

I used to go to Eagle Ridge every year over Thanksgiving (for over 20 years). Stopped 6 years ago after a divorce. Returned this year and was sorely disappointed. The house we rented looked like it had seen better days. The heat control fell apart in my hands. Some of the beds just had covers thrown over them! Housekeeper came at 9 am each morning to clean. We were on vacation and sleeping in. Never saw them again, and garbage kept piling up. I will never go there again. For what they charge, I expect better.

Eagle Ridge continues to be a leading resort in NW Illinois and a perfect place to get away from it all and relax. There really is no need to leave the property if you are there for a get away weekend. The only thing that is lacking is a hot tub in the pool area.

We played The General and found it very scenic and in pretty fair condition. The greens were pretty chewed up but overall it was very fun to play.

We stayed in a normal room. The room was small,outdated but very clean.The beds were very comfortable. The tv was good and the shower was very good but small.

We decided to drive into Galena for dinner and was not disappointed.

Overall we would have no problem returning to Eagle Ridge.

At first everything was great! We were excited to get married at this great location and wonderful resort. Well they paint a pretty picture!

They will quote you something and as time goes on you will find that the price they quoted you really doesn't include what you see when they take you to see the banquet rooms. I quickly realized I needed to document everything.

We went through three coordinators, the first one see men nice until you become assigned to another to a new coordinator. If you called you got attitude! New one comes in and this one was really nice, but decides to quit?! Hmmm. Okay get a call from director ok that was nice but at the end all a facade. New coordinator nice until the day off! They got paid so now it means nothing to servicing their customers. Totally rude to my wife loses personal belonging without any care. We reached out to the director a week goes by and nothing.

If you're getting married look elsewhere if you want to stay there that's a different story. I wondered why the town residents were not very fond of Eagle Ridge well now I know.
