“Will return”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Besides it being very reasonable, it was fantastic. From the beginning, the staff were very nice and accommodating. Loved the North Woods décor and they incorporated it into every detail. Very nice, clean and new. When we went up in our room on the 2nd floor, a member of the staff called us to make sure everything was to our liking. It most definitely was. We walked to the pool area where we saw a staff member cleaning the floors around the pool. Pool and hot tub were immaculate. Nice little area in the lobby with a big screen tv, lovely nature books and a fireplace. can't say enough about the continental breakfast. I have never ever seen scrambled eggs and sausage and ham before in any hotel. Hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal, hot and cold, waffle maker, toast, jelly, peanut butter, tea, coffee, juices, regular and lite pancake syrup, breads, bagels and English muffins, biscuits and gravy. I'm sure I'm missing some more. Coffee pot in room, toiletries too. Did not have a mini fridge but there was plenty of ice and we brought a cooler and filled that up so it was ok. There also is a small lounge area where they sell pizza too. If anyone has any complaints about this wonderful inn, then stay home because you don't deserve to stay here~ It is also very close to Main St.

We stayed 2 nights here in room #20. The hotel is not a historical building but modern construction and out of the downtown area. It is in a "shopping area" just north of downtown and within walking to a few chain restaurants and a Piggly Wiggly grocery. They offer 24/7 coffee in the lobby and have a nice breakfast. The hotel is clean and comfortable. My only complaint was walking into our room and being "offered for purchase" a stuffed frog sitting on the bed. Now if you have a child with you what kind of a fight are you going to have saying no to a $20 stuffed animal?

This hotel has a two star rating so I was hesitant to stay. This hotel was a good surprise. Room was large, clean and very comfortable. Very quiet. Pool and whirlpool were wonderful after a long, hot convertible drive. Nicely decorated throughout. Would stay here the next time I'm in Galena. The management needs to remove a table in the breakfast area since it became impossible to move around the room without disturbing everyone.

We stayed as part of a wedding block. Our room was spacious, neat, clean, and noisy. We we on the first floor and only 1-2 rooms away from the lobby. Others who were farther from the lobby said they didn't hear any hall noise.

The pool and hot tub area was well kept, and we enjoyed the adult only time from 10:00 to 11:00. The hot tub was really hot and the pool temp was perfect.

We would stay again if in the area.

What a nice place to stay!! The rooms were clean and the Northwoods/Golf decor was so charming! The pool also had a similar decor and was perfect for an evening swim! I would stay again without hesitation!

What a surprise. On a lark we tried the Stoney Creek Inn in Galena, IL. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, any requests we had, they had all the answers. The whole place nicely decorated and also very clean. The pool was nice and clean and the breakfast was delicious.

Had a very nice stay at Stoney Creek Inn. I was up there for the weekend visiting friends who just bought a place near downtown. The check in gal was very friendly as so was the rest of the staff and the rooms were very clean thought there was a slight musty scent to the room. They had a good hot breakfast, though at times there was a wait for waffles, as they only had one machine. Our 4 year old enjoyed the pool area immensely! This may be a pro or con, to some, but it is a little ways off downtown, but near the highway so it is easy to get to. One thing though...they left a stuffed horse in the room with the note, "if you wish to take me home, I am $19.99", so case the room and hide it if you have little ones! Overall, it was a great stay, especially if you are traveling as a family.

Room Tip: Great for families.

Dear pearlynk09, we are so very pleased that you and your family enjoyed your visit to Galena and our property in particular. Thank you for sharing your experience and for all the kind comments. Just so you know, we created the “Buddies on Beds” stuffed animal program several years ago as a way to help raise money for Children’s Charities in the Stoney Creek Territories. There are a variety of these critters, so review readers may get any number of different opportunities upon arrival besides the stuffed horse you described. I didn’t what everyone to think the buddies, ranging from cute raccoons, to cuddly skunks to handsome moose and more were put there for any but positive reasons. Thanks again for staying with us and for sharing your thoughts!
