You deserve the best and that's exactly what you'll get at this spectacular Galena hotel that's only minutes from downtown. Galena hotels come in all shapes and sizes, but nowhere else will you find these amenities for such an affordable price. We boast a very convenient location to downtown Main Street Galena. Our new fantasy suites are dripping with luxurious amenities and are fit for royalty. No other suites in Galena come close in comparison. Lodging in Galena has never been easier, especially during the busy seasons. Our indoor/outdoor pool with a separate inside hot tub features a swim-through option so you can choose to soak up the sun or stay in the shade indoors. Other hotels in Galena try to keep up but fall short. Every room features new flat screen TV's and a microwave/refrigerator combo. Dig into a complimentary daily breakfast spread featuring piping hot waffles, fresh fruits, pastries, yogurt, juices and 100% Arabica coffee. This Galena hotel is close to everything you need. Whether you're in town for skiing, checking out the local shopping and restaurants, going on historical tours and visiting landmarks, or a little rest, relaxation and romance, we have you covered. We're a hub for honeymooners. We also regularly welcome business travelers at this Galena hotel. Frequent guests are employees of Honeywell and the railroad. Bus groups/tours also visit our quaint town. Dubuque, Iowa is just 15 miles away. Our Galena hotel features easy access to shops, wineries, dining, art galleries and antique shops. We're within walking distance to US Grant's home. This Galena hotel is in the picturesque river city of Galena and has been under new ownership and management since August 2010. Our guests enjoy large spacious rooms with a sitting area. Most rooms also have a balcony or patio and the suites feature a Whirlpool tub and fireplace. Book your next stay with BEST WESTERN Designer Inn & Suites for an ah-inducing getaway!

This property is very well run. I've been here three times now and the maid service is impeccable. They also take pride in providing a very nice hot breakfast spread that changes daily.

Be Wary of sofa sleepers!

Three ladies, wanting to share a room, found it difficult to find Galena accomodations to meet our needs, but then discovered Best Western's dble Queen w/sofa sleeper. Room was nice & clean, beds were fine, location was great, cost was acceptable & breakfast was average fare. But the sofa sleeper turned out to be extremely uncomfortable & deemed unsleepable. Our friend left us at 1 AM to get her own room! And after a restless night - what was left of it - in the morning requested a new mattress & pillows for her bed -mattress was lumpy & pillows smelled like smoke despite being non-smoking room. Staff at first seemed reluctant, but they did make the accomodations and her 2nd night was much better.

Good value

Hotel was nice. Good size rooms and decent breakfast. Staff was pleasant. Spa was quiet and not too busy. Only complaint was pillows were too soft for my taste. If I'd brought my own it would have been better. In room microwave and frig were handy. Oh and coffee and snack mix out even in the evening.

Our accommodations met our needs beautifully and the staff were great!

Met friends and family to attend the WIne Lover's Weekend events. The Best Western met our needs beautifully. It is conveniently located and the staff was very helpful getting us around town and taking advantage of the local events.

Great Value in Galena

This place is just a 1/2 mile from the "Strip" in Galena. It's a well-run place with high cleanliness standards and a great staff. My room was clean and the breakfast exceeded my expectations with many choices and real scrambled eggs. The pillows are lousy so I'm glad I brought my own.

Birthday getaway

Had a nice stay. The hotel was not walking distance from downtown especially in the cold of the winter but only minutes away. Nice breakfast. Walls a little thin or the guys in the next room really has a snoring problem. We would stay here again.
