So let's start with check in is after 3. We got there right at 3, and our room was not ready. We had a over tired 2 year old with us, and it took 45 minutes to get into a room. (Another couple had waited longer!) While we were waiting, a staff member stomps around saying she hates her job. Really??? We get to the room and it is fairly clean, average hotel room. Except dirty towels in the bathroom! The "indoor pool" is about the size of a normal hotel hot tub. AND it was ICE COLD! Come to find out that the heater was broken. But no signs anywhere telling people. Not worth the savings to stay here!!!

Room Tip: Don't stay here

Some rooms have no fridge used to be all did now they don't so had to use cooler to keep food cold. Breakfast was good need to be quick to get it other wise it is major line. Good area for attractions was disappointed that was no buffet restaurant in town except for hu hot we waited awhile for our big group of people to seated at perkins which isn't the best place to go for hand caped seating got a table for my mom and uncle and grandma then major wait good food though. Room was clean and staff friendly willing to help you found attractions and give you directions. If you forget something the have it and internet the have. Book a least two months in advance. Has Walmart across the street. Field of dreams close and most is going over bridge to see galena, IL. Another fun attraction is jelly belly factory in Wisconsin.

Stayed: June 2013

As Comfort Inns go, this one is average. It is out of the downtown area and on the edge of the city. It is near restaurants and shopping, even light industrial area. For the size of the city, I thought it would be a better facility, a little dated but served our purpose. It was clean and more importantly took pets. Average breakfast bar that is offered in hotels these days. Staff friendly.

The only real negative was waiting for 5 minutes for someone to be at the front desk for check-in. The room was very nice and clean. The bed was clean and comfy. The pool and hot tub area was nice - would have wished for a window or door to open to get some fresh air. Didn't have any noise issues, even with being by the elevator. Breakfast was good with biscuits and gravy, as well as make your own waffles. It was a really nice stay overall.

I stayed here one night while having my vehicle serviced and the staff readily accommodated a late checkout. The room was nice and clean with microwave and refrigerator but I found the bathroom somewhat cramped due to the location/position of the door. Although I did not have a pet with me, I did note that dogs are allowed for a fee. Overall, this was a good place to stay and I would stay here again if I was in the area.

We got a great rate for the weekend of April 26 2013 since we went in the late spring season. The hotel is on a small site on a main street. The hotel was very clean. Our room had a king size bed. While the bathroom itself was small, a granite countertop had been installed, as well as a elliptical shower curtain rod, for a luxurious feel. The amenities included a free daily newspaper, and, a free breakfast that included hot (make-your-own waffles, scrambled eggs, and biscuits and gravy) and cold (cereal, yogurt) as well as juice, coffee, fruit, and muffins.

These physical room features are complemented by an efficient, helpful staff.

The Village Inn Restaurant, on John F Kennedy Rd, is less than 2 miles from this hotel, and serves good food for those looking for a light lunch.

Gasoline was cheaper in Iowa than in Illinois.

This hotel was a great home base for visiting Galena, 20 minutes away. On the April 26 weekend the Boy Scouts were in Galena. Still Galena was not crowded. Another time to go is on the 3rd weekend in April when the Galena History Museum is open for free in honor of Ulysses S Grant's birthday.

Room Tip: I stayed on the non-smoking floor which is the second floor. Even the room by the elevator is quiet...

I Took the wife shopping in Galena for the weekend. The property was on the Main drag and was easy to find. The Kennedy Shopping Mall is down the road with a very unique movie theater. The room was clean and had a reasonable rate. We would stay again.
