Reviewed 21 June 2014

stayed 2 nights. hotel staff very friendly. good location. very clean hotel. breakfast was ok, the usual hotel stuff. just a few minutes from downtown area. the modest exterior does not do the rooms justice.

Usually use my points for another hotel, but arrived and their computer was down so couldn't accept any travelers - couldn't make any room keys!?!? They suggested Stoney Creek - what a gem! Loved it. So cute and "rustic" But not in a bad way. Room was very attractive as was the lobby Beds soft and room was quiet. We were on the first floor and had not one problem with noise. Breakfast could be better. Eggs at 8:30 were not hot and pretty much tasted like cardboard. Won't do that again. But f you do cereal or waffles you will be fine. Would suggest two fruits, not just one. Pool was very well cared for and a pleasure to use. location to downtown Galena is just a few minutes away - perfect.

We stayed here one night to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We booked a suite but the actual room was more than we expected. We had the Caddy Shack suite and it had a small kitchen area with a apartment size refrigerator , a living room area, a separate bedroom with large two person whirlpool tub and a very nice bathroom with a double person sauna shower. Our suite was golf themed and nicely decorated. The king bed was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the whole suite. Check in and check out were great and the staff was very friendly and accommodating . They have an average breakfast which is included with your stay and they also have a small gift shop and offer you the opportunity to purchase the stuffed animal that is on your bed when you check in. Overall our stay was fantastic,just wish it was for several nights instead of only one.

I stayed at Stoney Creek in early May with my 2-year-old son. My parents, sister and her two children, and aunt and uncle also stayed in separate rooms (we were in town for a wedding). They were able to place our rooms close together. The staff was very friendly, even when I arrived at 1:00am with a cranky kid and needed a crib. They gave me the room right away and brought the crib up (which looked brand new) within minutes. Every room was different, and the one I got had a mini-fridge which was used a lot with my toddler.

The breakfast was sufficient, it was a continental breakfast but did have a waffle station. There was cereal, breads, yogurt, fruit, milk, and some hard-boiled eggs. The breakfast room did get quite crowded on the weekend but we were always able to find a table.

There was a small sitting area with a table on the second floor right outside our rooms, which we used a lot. We also used the breakfast room as an area to sit and chat. The staff was very accommodating with letting us use these areas.

The hotel is about three minutes from the downtown. Across the parking lot there is a strip mall with a grocery store and a Mexican restaurant. There is also a Chinese buffet and a McDonald's within walking distance, and a Wal-Mart up the street.

On the last morning I had to leave the hotel at 4:30am, and the front desk lady opened up the breakfast early for us and even set up the waffle station! We were very appreciative of that.

Overall this was a very comfortable hotel for our extended family group.

Staff was friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable. Morning breakfast was nothing spectacular but had the basics covered. Location is convenient to tourist destinations. Will stay here again next time I'm in Galena

Stoney Creek is always welcoming with its homey atmosphere, friendly staff and nice pool area indoors. Don't let the exterior architecture fool you. Inside you will find the warm atmosphere of north woods decor with a staff to match.
