We stayed here for a long business weekend. Rented a studio with a Murphy bed. Very convenient for eating and shopping in Galena. Will book again in the future. Only drawback was the mattress was too firm for my liking

The facility was extremely well maintained and comfortable. The staff was courteous , friendly and helpful. The only reservation I have was that the TV system did not always work. The Guide was unavailable much of the time.

The rooms had a fully equipped kitchenette and private balcony. The rooms had plenty of room and loved the 2 sided fireplace that faced the bed or jetted tub. We stayed 2 nights but the weather was cold and rainy so the tub was great to take the chill off. Our biggest complaint was that there was construction work being...

Our apartment was spacious, clean and nice decor. The showers were great and the beds comfortable. The private balconies and fireplaces made for very nice down time between shopping, sightseeing and eating. When we arrived Sandy greeted us and was friendly, courteous and upbeat - great way to start our stay. The kitchen was fully furnished. A well-designed 2-bedroom unit.

The room was nice. Would've been nicer if the toilet worked right. It ran pretty much the whole time and took about 20 minutes a time or more to fill after you flushed it. 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...
