Great place to go with Family for Holiday travel, especially Halloween. There are many outdoor activities in all weather and the indoor pool is a great option as well. Looking forward to my next stay this year! All staff is accommodating. There was construction going on which was disturbing but hopefully this year it'll be over. The full kitchens and...

From the moment I arrived, the staff was amazing! Both Courtney and Sandy were great! The 1 bedroom condo looked just like the pictures. All amenities advertised were included (fireplace, w/d, whirlpool jacuzzi, etc.) Even down to providing stemware, flatware, and seasonings! A quick 15 minute drive from downtown Galena, where there are cute shops and restaurants. Quiet and serene....

Glenda is a beautiful area. Staff extremely helpful.We had a two bedroom unit. It was very nice. Had housekeeping come and clean the shower because it was not cleaned to my standards. Someone came immediately and cleaned it again. The carpet was not vacuum properly but I decided to vacuum it myself. The master's bedroom mattress was too soft for...

Very nice quiet location. The staff was very friendly and helpful with questions about the area. The rooms were very clean and modern. No restaurant on site but close enough to town where there are many good choices.

Generous 3 star rating. A week in Galena, Illinois - booked a special getaway with my wife. Studio apts here are a notch better than dorm rooms; $100 a night is NOT a bargain. Postage-stamp-sized Murphy Bed, confusing WIFI, minimal amenities, etc. You can see the toilet directly from the couch. No food or lounge. 6+ miles from Galena. There's...
