We enjoyed our stay at Stoney Creek. The staff was very friendly, check in was very fast and smooth. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a good rate. Close to downtown. We have stayed at some of the other "chain" hotels in Galena and this is much much better! We will return!

The walls/floors of this hotel are "thin" and we did not get a good night's rest, despite retiring after 11 p.m. The folks upstairs were "active" and loudly so. Also, you can hear toilets/showers. The room was nice and spacious. The breakfast was good.

Room Tip: Not first floor

We are members so expected it to be as nice as other of the same name, however this property is one of the older ones and room #5 on the main level was very musty smelling. Coffee pot is plugged in and sits on top of micro wave which makes it very difficult to fill with water without spilling. There are no towel racks except for a very small one in toilet/shower area. Breakfast was nothing special; very weak coffee, "blueberry waffle" mix that was simply purple in color and not tasty. Would prefer regular yogurt rather than the "lite" that contains aspartame/or similar substance.
the swing and benches outside need varnish. Location is convenient to driving downtown. You cannot walk from there because there are no sidewalks.

Room Tip: Request a room above the main floor because the lower room #5 was very musty. Maybe they have old a...

Most motels are hard to differentiate from one another. Stony Creek is the exception. The overall theme is country and rustic but done tastefully and with modern amenities. I have lived near Galena for almost 20 year (now a Florida resident) but never had the opportunity to stay at this motel before. I booked it based on reviews and was pleasantly pleased that the motel lived up to the high reviews and ratings.

The staff was very nice, room was updated to a like new status, AC worked perfectly and quiet,
and breakfast was comparable to HI Express....and the price was far less than other motels in the area. Do yourselves a favor and stay at the Stony Creek when visiting Galena.

Minutes from downtown Galena. Stayed in the whirlpool suite which was a spacious room with a very comfortable king sized bed. The room had a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Hotel was very clean and the staff was very friendly. We didn't make use of the indoor pool but it looked very inviting and clean; there were several people lounging at the many tables surrounding the pool. Breakfast was included and a nice variety of choices were offered... from hot biscuits and country gravy, to yogurts, bagels, muffins, cereals, fruits, juices, coffee and tea. Just enough to start the day. We plan on returning in October and will strongly consider staying here again.

It is a lovely hotel in a lovely little town wonderfully situated in the mountains above the Mississippi river. The hotel has a unique design, like a log cabin.
The room was clean and uniquely decorated. It had, for exemple, a quilted curtain in the bathroom! There is a little shopping center in a walking distance - very convenient.
