Excellent service. I will go again and recommend to my friends.

Stayed one night in Galena with another couple. Had a great time. The hotel had a lot to offer in terms of activities but we really didn't take advantage of them since we were there more to visit downtown Galena.

Nice staff. Nice views. I guess is the only hotel in the mountain ⛰ so not much to choose from

Hotel rooms have been updated and beds were comfortable.

You’re in the land of corn! I was pleasantly surprised in the resort, ski hill and restaurant. Staff were friendly and the room was cozy. For the number of families here and everyone tracking in snow and equipment, it was nice. I’ll be going back.

Was our first time to the area and didn't know where to stay and chose this hotel. Was please try surprised. Would return maybe some fall

King room was very small. Only a desk, no extra seating. Bed was very high for a bed...if you are short, it is hard to get into. Restaurant wait staff very amateur and inexperienced. What bar person does not give you a napkin or coaster with a drink? What wait person presents a bill without a pen? That happened twice. This place is probably fun for kinds for a day or two but that is it (summers only). This is a ski lodge. No Free Breakfast.

We had a great experience. would recommend. Nice view, lots to do, it was rainy and cool but we enjoyed it.

I am truly torn on this review. My biggest disappointment: the pictures that you see for the resort are for the premium rooms. But, you do not know this when booking through Orbitz. Non-premium rooms are in a wing of the resort that is very outdated. The carpet is worn. The rooms are worn. The television is from the 90s. The remote did not work. The door to the bathroom stuck. The room was clean. I want to be clear on this point. I just felt short-changed, felt like I didn't have all the information, at hand, when I made my booking decision.

The hotel was good, but flies were a real bother in the pool area and restaurant. Food was just ok, rooms were spacious. Alpine slide was fun for kids, it the right person is running it. First person was only letting people go down every 3-4 minutes, instead of the 1 minute normal time. So we had to wait over an hour to go down the hill. It really has beautiful sights looking down at the Mississippi, especially at night fall.

The hotel Room was out dated with older tv. No fridge. No microwave. Small bathroom little to no counter space. Older a.c. unit. The activities onsite are the reason to stay. Staff was very friendly.
