We were looking for a relaxing weekend away from the hub-bub yet close enough to Galena, IL for great food and activities. We could not have picked a better place. The rooms are very nice, pool is great and hot tub is just perfect. We enjoyed not only Galena but also Dubuque, IA. Will definately stay again.

Well I read a few poor reviews online and since I have been to a different Stoney Creek before and found it to be 1st class, so we gave this one a try. We were not disappointed. It's close to downtown.The staff was exceptional. Cleanliness, quality and value were all present. The included breakfast was better than expected, quality (but limited) food. We really enjoyed our stay and will be back for sure. We used to stay at Eagle Ridge but "NO MORE".

Room Tip: Spend the couple "extra bucks" (literally) for the "Deluxe" room, they come with...

We have been coming to Galena for many years. The Stoney Creek Inn was not built on our first 2 trips but as soon as they were open for business we stayed there and have been returning every year. We love the décor (Bears, Moose etc.) and the outdoor scenery that goes with that. In the past few years as we enter our room we are greeted with a stuffed animal guest to keep us company. This year it was Pee Wee the crocodile. The breakfast they offer is great. We have never had a problem with the staff’s service and feel the prices are fair.

We went to Stoney Creek Inn for my husbands and stayed in the Premier Suite and added the Romance Package which included a bottle of champagne, two keepsake flutes, a box of Godiva chocolates and you do not have to check out until 1pm. We had an absolutely wonderful time and cannot wait to go back in the spring so we can enjoy downtown Galena.

The staff are some of the best we have ever had the good fortune to deal with. The room was impecable, with a wonderful bed, steam shower and cozy fireplace. The breakfast in the morning was great with a large variety of cold and hot items. The coffee was by far the best we have ever had at a hotel.

I saw a few reviews that were critical of the decor, all I can say to that is if you looked at the pictures and didn't like it you shouldn't have gone there. It was very theme oriented but in a wonderfully homey way. We did not use the pool or hot tub but went down to look at it and it was the best we have ever seen. If you are going to say in Galena stay at Stoney Creek Inn.

Room Tip: The Premire Suite is the way to go, it is spacious and on the back side so no road noise.

A very comfortable experience. From the time I walked into find a friendly face to the time left, I felt a calm come over me. It could have been the visitor in the room (I had a stuffed alligator with a friendly face), or the confortable beds with the soft to firm pillow selection. When I woke up, I could move with out pain, (a super bonus the beds were so comfortable!!) Over all my visit not only left me satisfied, but the romance spiked up again. Oh and the breakfast was great!! Although if was like a maze through the breakfast tables in order to get to the food, the biscuits and gravy demanded a second helping. So delicious!!

My husband & I went to Galena and booked our stay at the Stoney Creek Inn for 3 nights. The service from everyone at the front desk exceeded our expectations. No sooner did I mention that something needed attention and it was attended to immediately, with a smile. It is definitly our place to stay in Galena. The rooms are wonderful with attention to every detail. We are already planning a return trip for nbext year.

My husband and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary here. We were looking for a rustic, outdoorsy type of hotel--not your standard hotel, and this was exactly what we were looking for. Warm, cozy feeling immediately upon entering; extremely friendly staff; and very clean for us neat freaks! This will be our "go to" hotel every trip we take to Galena, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It's about a minute from town which is so convenient. We stayed in the Bear Essentials theme room. It's cute, has a fireplace, hot tub and an adorable bear toilet paper holder. Hahaha! Even the guests we met there were extremely nice. Great group of people all around.

Room Tip: Bear Essentials--so cute! Bears all around, and everything made from logs. Felt like we were in a lo...
