So you didn't really trust it to actually USE the toilet. Other than that the room itself was nice. I do have to say it would...

Galena is a small town (3,500 residents) with a great historic district that is fun to explore. It's home of 9 Civil War generals, most notably Ulysses S. Grant, who lived there for 3 years after the war. The Wyndham resort is about 8 miles outside of town in a nice quiet area. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite...

Fantastic value and surprisingly large room with good sized Jacuzzi right next to the fireplace. For such a great price our expectations were significantly exceeded, especially since the Murphy bed was surprisingly comfortable. If you can get a room facing the back of the hotel your balcony is pretty much private. Knocked off one star for cleanliness. Wasn't horrible but...

We arrived late in the evening; the lady at the front desk was not the most pleasant to deal with. The first room they gave us smelled like smoke and she tried to tell us that she would have to see what she could do. In the end, the evening manager (I think that was his title) moved us to...

We spent Mothers Day weekend in galena and had booked a room at the World Mark Gelena. It was more a suite than a room and the price was very reasonable, possible because it was off season. We enjoyed the area and this will be a great backup for rooms next fall when our daughter gets married out there
