Stayed here for a long weekend in Galena. We were interested in staying close to Main Street and this location was awesome. The room was clean and had everything we needed. When I go on vacation, I don't live in my room, so this was perfect for the evenings. It's an older building so it creaks and you hear people...

This is a make-shift hotel, not a B&B. There was rarely anyone at the desk if you needed something. The Breakfast was all but non-existant, and coffee was not available until after 8am, and then only for a short while. The room was ok, but rather warm, with no heat adjustment. When we arrived we had trouble finding an unlocked...

This is now 305N. Changed names a few years ago. I have never stayed in a B&B before...and to be honest, I dont really think its my style but we decided to give it a whirl. Now, I also dont think this is a traditional B&B... PROS Great location. Right on main, walk to everything you would want to in...

This Bed and Breakfast advertises itself as "newly remodeled" and "the best lodging downtown Galena has to offer" neither of which is true. In our experience it was old, uncomfortable, and lacked charm. Breakfast is coffee and a muffin. We had planned a 3 night stay but left after one night. We were the only guests there.

The Inn is very well maintained and comfortable with whirlpool tubs, fireplaces and flat screen TVs. All suites are different with some having kitchens. There is a two bedroom apartment on the top floor with a large covered deck off the back. The Inn was originally build in the 1840's but every room is updated without compromising the charm. It...

304 North Main with its unique character and charm is located in beautiful historic downtown Galena, IL. We enjoyed the spacious, quiet and cozy suite with a full bath and an enormous private deck. This little treasure's luxury meets laid-back get-away in the heart of everything. Price is very reasonable. Exceptionally clean. We strolled out the front entrance and right...

You can't beat the location of this place. The parking was simple and stay was great. Not your typical B&B, but who cares. Never been my style to sit in group setting and eat. When we checked in, it was easy and inn keeper told us hey I have coffee, pastries, and some small stuff for breakfast, but why compete...

The hotel is a beautiful bed and breakfast with tailored service for us! I reserved a larger suite for a girls' getaway in the middle of the week and we had the place all to ourselves. The owner was so sweet, kind and tailored the complimentary breakfast to fit our needs as we were the only ones there! He assisted...

THere is no shortage of B&B, Inn, or hotel options in Galena, and it is rare that we stay at the same place twice, though we go there a few times a year. 305 North is an exception, however. It is a lovely 8 room inn right on main, convenient to all the shops and restaraunts downtown. This is what...

My husband and I took our 9 month old to Galena for a long weekend. I read the reviews below AFTER I booked the room and when it was too late to cancel. I was apprehensive when we arrived that the place would be a dump. It was not. It is an old building (duh it is in Galena) and...
