My husband and I have never been to Galena so we decided to take a 3 day 2 night trip. We stood at Worldmark Galena. I have to say it was so peaceful and quiet. My husband and I had the game room to ourselves and the pool, it was so much fun. The resort and the rooms are very clean and very up to date. We would definitly stay here again.

We had a room with a Murphy bed. The unit was spacious, clean and comfortable and stocked with everything we might need. Our balcony overlooked the woods as conveniently located near Galena. We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Ask for a unit overlooking the woods, not the parking lot.

I stayed two nights this past weekend Nov 2nd and 3rd here at Marriott's Springhill Suites the hotel is just down the road from the Portland International Airport and about 3 blocks away from Budget Car Rental. The room is very nicely furnished it has a small mini frig, small microwave with coffee maker and all these have it's own sink. The room I had was a single Queen which was very comfortable as well as the pillows, they hod lots of pillows. Shower and toilet are in one room which was very spacious the sink was right outside of the shower area. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. It had a sofa which was a hide a bed in it. A desk with a lamp and electrical in the base of it so you could plug in your various chargers. I have stayed at this hotel about 2 years ago and found it to my liking. The hotel does not have a restaurant on site but there are 2 places not far off about 5 or 7 mins by car if not closer. Staff is very friendly and helpful with directions. They also have free breakfast which is quite good, juice, coffee, fresh fruits, bagels, plus scrambled eggs, sausage and cold cereal, They have a computer in the lobby area so you can surf the internet or print out your boarding pass.. If I have to travel to Portland again this will be my hotel of choice again

If peace and quiet is important to you, this place is great. The leaves were starting to turn color, and the soothing tree views were icing on the cake. The drive is winding, and the quaint, small midwestern towns are as truly american as one can get. Of course, Galena is interesting because of the history and the sites. We had a studio unit, which was adequate. The corridors were not new, and needs to be replaced.

We stayed here a while back when we went to Galena. We loved it here, our room was so nice and cozy and our view was great. It was a very clean please and it was very easy to get to and to get back and forth from town.

We had a group traveling together, so we had 4 rooms. Odd numbers had a nice view, even numbers had a view of the parking lot. we socialized in the odd number room. We had the studio rooms, where you only have a small kitchenette, no full sized frig [don't buy any ice cream]. no real room for the coffee pot, we put ours in the bathroom as there was more room. Plenty of space in the room with the bed up, once it's down, we had to rearrange the furniture. Great friendly staff. Free WiFi, another nice touch. Would go back again, though I’d bring my own pillow – they were soft and the mattress was hard – for my liking.

We are Worldmark owners, and have stayed at many locations over the years. This property is very nice, but the real winning aspect is the staff! The front desk personnel are very helpful and informative (especially Elizabethann), Unlike most Worldmark properties this has the feel of a lodge, with a warm inviting lobby and enclosed hallways.

The location is peacefully located about 7 miles out of town, but with direct highway access to Galena (and points beyond).

If you are a Worldmark (or Wyndham) owner, book well in advance as the earlier you book the higher priority your reservation. This is important here, as units face either the valley or the highway, and you definitely want the valley.

Room Tip: Book early for a valley side unit, and a higher floor. There are three floors. The main entry is on...
