was only at the hotel for 8 hrs at night, quiet room, decent location

Nice hotel but beds are not very large in the Double Suite room. We have a family of 4 with 2 teenagers and can usually have Mom sleep with daughter and Dad sleep with son. We ended up getting a second room because the beds were not Queens. They are either Full or Doubles so very tight with teenagers. Breakfast was good. Nice location and woodsy decor.

Wonderful hotel, it was clean, breakfast was good, very lodgy feel it felt so good to be there. Very charming atmosphere and professional staff. Definately would go back next time we are in galena!

convenient location, nice deco, good pool,breakfast.Clean room with microwave and refrigerator. cookies and coffee all day in lobby. mattress a little too soft, wall a little thin we could hear our neighbor when they talk loud

Nice, unique hotel with a friendly staff. Pool is great, and it's really close to town.

Room was clean, everything worked, bed was comfortable. Friendly staff.

My wife and I have go to Galena a few times a year. We arrived at 8pm on a Friday night. There were no parking spots available. I had to park our vehicle in the shopping center parking lot across the street. When we checked in the front desk clerks were very nice and helpful. When we got to our room it was clean but small and out dated. The beds were very squeaky and cheap. I called the front desk to see if we could change rooms. The front desk clerk took us to a second room, which was even smaller and beds were the same way. My wife and I decided to stay in the first room. The clerk stated that there was a wedding in hotel and these were the last two room available. Once we got back to our room the clerk called us and stated that there was one more room that he had found and he wanted to see if we would like it better. My wife and I looked at the third room and it was bigger but beds were still squeaky. My wife told the desk clerk that the hotel needed to update the beds and frame in hotel. He stated that the hotel was trying to get that done. In the morning I got up to brush my teeth and the warm water was brown. I had to go buy a bottled water to brush our teeth. My wife and I have stayed in this Stoney Creek Hotel previously and were satisfied the first time. Our stay this time was very disappointing.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful throughout my stay.

We stayed overnight to be able to shop in Galena and head for Dyersville. Room and bed very comfortable, I liked to pool and hottub. We did not have breakfast there, wanting to get on our way, but I did think the hours were llimited.

My 19 YO and myself traveled to Galena for a midweek getaway before it was back to school. The hotel is in a perfect location just minutes for downtown Galena. The front desk staff was perfect. We did not have the breakfast but it looked yummy. Check in and Check out was quick and easy. Pool and Hot Tub and dry sauna were great and the perfect way to end out evening.

I loved the ambiance of this hotel-- very woodsy and cabin-esque! Standard king room was good-sized and clean, no problems with noise from other rooms. Only stayed one night so we didn't get to take advantage of the pool & hot tub but those looked great. Breakfast buffet was well stocked and delicious. Will definitely stay here again!

Spent three nights here at the end of July and had a very nice stay. The staff were very helpful answering the many questions we had regarding our stay and made good recommendations. Also, having coffee in the Breakfast Room all day is great idea. It's a short drive to Downtown Galena and also for a quick day trip to Dubuque. I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is in a great location. We spent the day in Grant Park for the Country Festival and dined downtown and also shopped downtown in all the neat shops. We also traveled to East Dubuque to spend some time at a pumpkin patch. The pool was very nice and the staff was friendly. At Breakfast we had many choices. You could make a waffle on the wafflemaker or make your own breakfast sandwich with choices of cereal,bagels,muffins and many drinks. I would recommend this to all my friends and my 9 and 7 year old daughter are begging to go back again.

My son thought the hotel was great. We could have saved more if we had called for pricing. Still it was in our range that we were willing to pay, just no discount. Room was clean and workers were pleasant.

Great location! Few minutes from downtown Galena and Chestnut ski resort! Hotel had lots to do... hot tub, sauna, heated pool, etc. Very friendly front desk workers and books of restaurants around town! We would stay there again!

Shopped, dined out, viewed the historic buildings downtown. The hotel was great except that we were in the wrong area of the hotel. It was the lower level and it was noisy. You could hear everyone upstairs walking, next door and the people who went outside to smoke. Other than that I recommend this place. Very well kept up. We spent time there several years ago when it was new and it was still in great condition.

Nice, quiet motel

Great Hotel! Wish the hotel was walking distance to downtown Galena. No bars or nightlife within walking distance...the hotel bar wasn't open either while there.Other than that great experience!
