We needed a weekend away and this was the best place to go. We stayed in the Crystal Cave and the Pearl room. Our favorite was the Crystal Cave. We will definitely go back. The staff was very helpful from the time we checked in until the time we checked out.

Very comfortable and located near all of the historic sites and the downtown area. Was impressed with the breakfast selections. Offered complimentary paper and the motel was quiet. Not far from Grant's home. Avoid Monday- its not open.

Great clean an modern place! Clean rooms, GREAT breakfast and reasonable room charges. Just remodeled and very up to date. Great staff and comfortable beds. The rooms, on the Southside, have nice balconies to stand or sit and relax as you look into the woods.

I made a last minute reservation here for an overnight stay while I was passing through. The rooms were clean, they had continental breakfast (good variety of options), the room was quite large, had a sofa, fridge, couch, etc. I did find the room somewhat noisy. I was across the hall from a stairwell going down to the pool area...

Clean, updated, and close to downtown Galena. I was pleasantly surprised by the fresh updates and cleanliness of this motel. Never would have thought a Best Western could be this pleasant with big rooms, decent breakfast, and close proximity to Galena. Plus, a budget conscious property that takes well-behaved dogs!

My husband and I stayed in the crystal caves suite here and it was amazing. Beautifully hand decorated, lights above the bed making you feel like your looking at the stars, sauna, jacuzzi, and the shower is beyond words. Has a massaging shower with jets that can target specific points of your body with a push of a button and...

Came for a weekend getaway. Easy to find. Just up the road from Galena. Josh at the front desk was awesome and friendly and helpful. Room was clean and was better than one we stayed in(different hotel).

We stayed in the crystal cave room and it was beautiful and relaxing. The staff was friendly and helpful. They are in the midst of remodeling the hotel so the outer appearance wasn't much but our room was wonderful.

We stayed at the Best Western in town. Overall the visit went well. Clean and neat. Breakfast in the morning provided by the hotel was very good! The only disappointing thing was that the Hot Tub was not working properly. Was told the the water was still hot but the jets were just not working correctly. They had put tape...
