The resort / hotel is rather old and worn out. The rooms were just OK - again probably time for a remodeling task to be done. We hada 2 queen beds room which was reasonably sized. Odd room numbers have a view of the Mississippi river. Staff members were OK. Free breakfast is essentially $8 per person off from the total bill. Breakfast buffet was $6.99 and was average. Although an aging hotel, which is 8-10 miles from downtown Galena, the attractions (summertime) of the Alpine Slide, River cruises, Chair lifts, mini-golf, etc. were on the property and therefore convenient to get to. Swimming pool and hot tub were quite aged as well. The drive to/from Galena and US-20 is scenic and with lot of animal farms and corn fields, although it is slow given that much of the road was dirt roads. If you are OK with a 3-star hotel showing signs of age at a reasonable price, this one is good.
