“Comfortable and relaxing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

We stayed one night in a suite with a whirlpool and fireplace. I was surprised by the modern and well decorated feel of this hotel. We were a little concerned that there would be lots of little kids and noise because of the waterpark in the middle of the location. Since we were on the top floor and toward the end, we couldn't hear a thing.
The main reason that I am not giving a perfect rating is due to the dining experience. Hot food was not quite hot, there is no ice in the dining room and they were only using one waffle maker while we were there, which caused us to have to eat one at a time.
Overall, it was a lovely experience and we will be back to give it another try soon!

Our weekend stay made us feel very comfortable and welcomed at the Galena, Il Country Inn. The staff was very pleasant all the time and I believe it's because of the leadership there. The Front Desk Manager, Jessica, always has a smile and she talks to you like your her friend. The other associates also treated us the same way. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back to Galena soon and will stay at the Country Inn Suites.

Room Tip: We enjoyed the room that has the fireplace and whirlpool located on the 4th floor.

Love this hotel! My husband, little girl and I have stayed here numerous times. But this time i travel there with some of my best girlfriends. We had two suites next to each and they were perfect. The bedroom was separated from the living room with a doors so it worked out great for those that wanted to sleep later then the rest. There was table in the living portion of the room that were were able to play euchre at. Richard was on staff both nights and was most helpful and kind. The free Breakfast was great, we saved money by not having to eat in two. This is the only hotel i will stay at in Galena, i know that there will be not surprises when i a, stay at this hotel!

We have stayed here at least three times now, and would definitely come back again. It lives up to the Country Inn and Suites reputation with nice rooms, good and plentiful breakfast, helpful staff, and comfy beds. What we really like about this particular Country Inn is the super-nice pool area, which is great for family gatherings.

We love Galena, with all the quaint shops and great restaurants, and the nearby secenic areas. This hotel is maybe a couple miles from downtown Galena, located on the highway to Dubuque. We have stayed here as part of a family reunion group, and as a stop on a motorcycle riding weekend. It's very popular, so you may want to book early.

My family and I stayed here for three nights in early July. Our stay was wonderful. The people are very friendly, Both our rooms were clean from corner to corner. No chance of complain what so ever! The break fast was terrific. My kids really enjoyed the pool slides. Just wish place like this was every where I go! Thanks!

Room Tip: Get a room on towards the back side if you need quietness.

The beds were comfortable, room quiet and clean. The breakfast was wonderful! Never had fixings for a breakfast burrito before. Very nice.
