Nice room, shuttle service valuable since parking is limited in Galena.

First time to Galena, this hotel is great. Rooms clean and comfy, Irish setting is just fantastic. Frank O’Dowds restaurant was very good and drink selection was great for a authentic Irish Pub. Staff was great.

The bar, entertainment and area!

Staff were awesome! I would stay again for sure. Only mildly disappointed that the restaurant menu was limited due to ongoing renovations…just temporary so not a big deal. Probably the most comfortable bed in a hotel ever. On demand movie service wasn’t working but again, just a mild annoyance. Overall a lovely stay.

Great place!

Great location, fantastic Irish restaurant. Very helpful staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. One of the most comfortable beds I've ever had in at a hotel. Excellent

I wish the pool and hot tub were working. They are both down for maintenance. Otherwise the staff is really nice!

A very comfortable and overall very pleasant place to stay. However, there was one small problem we had: the room air conditioner was somewhat loud and seemed to vibrate or rumble during the night which kept us awake from time-to-time.

Pub food was high quality.

Unique hotel, not just a "common hotel".

Pleasant stay.

They had live music Friday and Saturday night - a lot of fun.

Everything was great!!

Loved the Irish Restaurant and Pub and the live entertainment.

Very courteous and friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. Great place.

Thank you Alexandra for sharing your concerns with us. We are sorry hear of your disappointment of our limited menu during a short time due to renovations to our kitchen. We are happy to report the renovation to our kitchen is now complete and we are back to our full menu. Our new deck for dinning outside is nearly complete as well. It will be a great addition for outdoor dinning! We have addressed the On Demand movie service with concerns of renting movies, to have any issues resolved. We're happy that you loved our comfortable bed! We hope to see you again soon!
