We just spent two nights at this Inn in Galena and it was wonderful! The people were so nice. A free cookie at check-in, awesome, warm breakfast each day, and a nice gift shop and little bar area if you like. The bed was comfy, fireplace and whirlpool very nice and clean. We stayed in the Clubhouse Suite and the weekday price for what you all get is extremely reasonable! Thanks so much! Will go again!

courteous staff, clean accommodations, reasonable prices. The rooms were very clean and cheerful. The morning breakfast was very nice. Front desk staff were very friendly and accommidating. The atmosphere was whimsical and warm. Great for those that want the north woods look but not the high lodge price. The location is close enough to main street to make it very favorable.

Room Tip: No Elevators so upper level rooms might be diffuicult. All rooms quiet. Very bright and sunny.

Upon entering the property, we felt like we were in the great 'northwoods', or a friendly cottage. The staff was very friendly, the king room was comfortable and very nicely decorated. The bathroom warranted a 'take home' picture of it's own due to the quaint decorating there. The bed was firm, yet plush. Continental breakfast included a different egg dish with sausage every morning, fresh cinnamon rolls, and the usual additional food items. Very good. We will be back!

My husband and I stayed here one night to celebrate our 5th anniversary. Since it was only one night, we splurged and booked a theme suite with a fireplace and hot tub. It was wonderful! Our check-in was fast and friendly. I loved the layout of the room. Although it was a "Northwoods" theme it wasn't at all cheesy and overdone. It had a nice breakfast bar area w/refrigerator and the fireplace actually warmed up the room very nicely! The location of the hotel was very convenient to the downtown attractions in Galena. Breakfast was a standard continental breakfast - nothing fancy. All in all I would highly recommend and would stay there again!

My sister and I stayed 3 nights here in Galena, Illinois. Really nice front counter people. The room was a little small but very clean. Free breakfast every morning. I would rather have a separate vanity from the bathroom but that's not a big deal. Only complaint is for $100 bucks a night, it should really have a fridge.

This place is A-OK, take my word for it. Great hotel. Meets around 95% of my standards, see below. They know their business and are squared away. However, a few deficiencies….

This hotel has no elevator. So if you are disabled or can't handle stairs, take note. Stairs to lobby poorly lighted and has dark carpeting so be careful.
The room has a "kitchen" area with a large counter top, etc. But it could use a sink in that area.

Finally, if you have a room near the highway, which has modest a upgrade, you will hear trucks grinding up the hill and it is noisy.

My judging standards: I am more than a casual traveler as I have traveled for business for over 40 years and have stayed in every type of hotel from a dump to five star in hundreds of cities. I am particular and have high standards. Here's how I judge a hotel.
I look for a room where everything works, quiet heating and cooling, sound proof walls, lights bright enough so one can read, windows that you can open, safety features for older folks in the bathroom, a decent "free breakfast," and in addition to usual stuff such as check-in, a clean room, firm mattress, TV, etc. Good elevator service is important. Likewise a location that is free from road noise such as diesel trucks climbing a hill or railroad traffic.
I only write reviews on Trip Advisor as I appreciate the thoughtful and objective comments of others when I am screening hotels for my own travel."Give and you shall receive."

The Stoney Creek Inn has a beautiful decor. The staff was helpful and very friendly. Nice clean place to stay. The free breakfast was the best!! Hot eggs, sausage, waffles, muffins, etc. I would highly recommended staying here. Enjoy!! We did.
