As stated above, we have had two different rooms and neither had a refrigerator. They did have blow dryers in both rooms. We even had a suite with a fireplace. I highly recommend the midweek internet options. They are great money savers and offer a view of Galena without the crowds. The food is fantastic and you can get vouchers from the specials. Vetmanage said it above and I concur, we will not stay anywhere else in Galena. It;s right downtown and offers free on site parking.
