“Ramada Rocks in Galena, Illinois!”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

This Ramada is awesome! It was a perfect romantic get-away! The whole holtel was in pristine shape! Breakfast was delicious and not crowded! I just want to know if the front desk ordered the soft snowfall on Friday night! It was like being in a holiday post card! Thank you Galena Ramada!

The Ramada, Galena, was perfect for the "girls" weekend that we had planned. The hotel was very clean, and emulated the Galena "old fashioned" charm. Yes, it is decorated in a victorian fashion of a yesteryear instead of the sleek, updated contemporary or classic look that most hotels are changing to. This is however, because of the Galena area. A contemporary hotel would be very out of place here. Galena's attraction is the preservation of it's early history. The buildings are restored beautifully to their original states, and the ambiance that the town creates is wonderful. The Ramada tries to continue the feel of the town in their decor. The rooms are simple, but they are spacious and they are clean. I definitely recommend the spa! This is what attracted us to the hotel in the first place. (we also weren't up for the whole bed and breakfast environment since we were having a ladies weekend.) The spa offered nice packages for the hotel guests that you should definitely take advantage of. Compared to some of the other hotels in the area, the price was very inexpensive. For the amount of time that we actually spent in the room, this hotel suited us perfectly. The morning breakfast included in the rate was very adequate to get the day started. French toast, waffles, and the other basic continental fare. Staff was very friendly and helpful with restaurant suggestions and other things that we needed. Beds were queen sized, not just doubles. Pool area is HUGE! I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again upon returning to Galena!

Room Tip: We like the second floor, even though there isn't an elevator.

My wife & I spent the weekend at this hotel and found the area charming and the facility clean and quiet. Close to the downtown shopping and historical area, breakfast was excellent, and the front desk was accommodating & efficient. Room was clean and well maintained. Did not use the spa or the large pool.

We recently spent a night here while visiting Galena with another couple. Staff and room were great. Check in was fast and uneventful and check out was even quicker. My ONLY suggestion would be more comfortable chairs in the rooms so you don't have to sit in the bed to watch TV.

The location is good. It's a short drive to the dowtown area where the shops are. The room we stayed in was ground level and our view was of the parking lot - so that wasn't anything special. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the breakfast was o.k. (just the standard continental breakfast with cereal, toast, make your own waffles etc). Nothing really negative to say.

Room Tip: I'm assuming that the rooms that face the back of the property have better views. It wasn't...
