“Pretty Nice Overall ...”
Reviewed 3 March 2008

I will admit that this is not a brand new Hyatt by any means ... yes it is a bit worn. Though, it was a clean place that had some perks for some weekend skiiers. It had a big indoor pool, hot tub and sauna that more than made up for the older rooms.

I was initially scared when I got this hotel, but there is nothing to worry about!

You will enjoy the pool!

  • Liked — Pool, Hot Tub and Sauna were very nice!

My 1st impression when I walked into the room was that the carpet looked worn and the beds looked old and worn. When we used the bathroom sink, it drained very slowly and the sink had stains. The sheets on the bed we thread bare. During the night I felt crumbs under my pillow and wondered if the sheets had been changed between customers. That morning I put a mark on the sheet and checked later after the room had been made up to see if the sheets had been changed. They had not. The drain had been fixed. The pool looked tired. The ceiling in the hall outside the breakfast room had a leak. The breakfast was good. I only stayed there because it was all that was available and I had to stay somewhere. Never again!

  • Liked — leaving
  • Disliked — Not knowing if the sheets had been changed after the last customer.

We stayed at the Timmerman´s for a weekend in October. My husband knew about it because he had been a student at Loras College 25 years ago. At that point, it might have been a decent place to stay, but not any more. All the comments about worn carpets and bad towels are true, it seems that the owners don´t want to spend any money on it. I will stay somewhere else next time.

My husband I and stayed July 19 for one night in room 104. The room was very clean and pleasant. Nice location for Dubuque. Our son was at Loras All Sports Camp and this location was very convenient. Nice stay and staff.

Reviewed 25 June 2007

My best friend and I planned a getaway to Galena for her birthday this past weekend. We couldn't find any place that had vacancies except for this place which she remembered from 20 years ago as a child. The price was right and the location was good so we reserved friday and saturday night. Unfortunately, by saturday morning we were online looking for ANYWHERE else to transfer to.

The thing about this hotel is that you feel like it's dying a slow death. You can tell that decades ago it was probably a real hot spot. But the rooms are so worn out and unclean. The beds are old and uncomfortable. The mattresses and box springs were stained. The pillows and blankets and bedspreads were stained and had holes and tears. (the pillows were especially awful.) The bath towels were so old and stained and frayed and had tears and/or holes. The shower head and shower curtain had mold/mildew growing on them and we were so grossed out we went to wal-mart to buy Tilex to clean it.

Management has obviously taken good care to keep the common areas up to date and clean, and the pool was clean, they even had wireless internet which is great...but the rooms really need upgrading. I hope they do consider these upgrades because until they replace the beds, towels, bedspreads and so on, I would never recommend this place at any price.

Our stay at Timmermans was very acceptable. This hotel is not brand new and there are some signs of wear. But overall it was clean, comfortable, and reasonable for the area. It is next to a supperclub and near many attractions in the Galena area. There is also a golf course right out the door. The staff was very friendly. I would stay at Timmermans again without hesitation.

I guess there were 5 people who were unhappy. The rooms were very clean. Three couples in three rooms and all were nice.At $58.95 per night (with AARP)don't expect the Plaza Hotel. These rooms were the same as a Comfort Inn,Holiday Inn,or Ramada. Key cards and good dead bolt locks for security.If you don't like kids running in the halls, than this would be the only downfall to this Hotel. If you have kids they'll all have fun.The pool is a good size with a whirl pool and sauna.I stayed the weekend of 2/18/06. I do not know the owners or any empolyee. After reading the other 5 reviews I thought we would be staying at a dump. HOW WRONG I WAS! This place is a good choice. If you're looking for the Ritz-Carlton than make a reservation at the Ritz-Carlton.
