Beautiful setting! Room was nicely decorated. Seemed updated. It was zero-subzero temps outside and room was VERY drafty and cold. Lobby was nice with a big fireplace which was very cozy. Sunday breakfast was very good!

Birthday weekend!

Pros: Everything
Cons: nothing
Location: 10 minutes from downtown Galena lots of history , shopping, great restaurant's , and plenty of golf course's. not to mention the beautiful views !
We went to Eagle Ridge for my wife's Birthday. The place is beautiful set on rolling hills surrounded by golf course's. Just 10 minutes out of downtown Galena . Everyone working there was fantastic and we were treated very well. Our room was a beautiful King size room with a real wood burning fireplace. I would also highly recommend the Sunday brunch.

Stay somewhere else for the price!

Pros: Family wedding there.
Cons: Keep the rooms clean
Location: There is Galena, IL close by.
The hotel is lovely as you drive up to it. Looks nice, lovely gardens, nice check in. Then you go to the room. For over two hundred a night I expect NICE! There were stains on the chair and the carpet. The sink drained correctly only if you turned it on halfway. Called maintenance, he showed up while I was in the shower. We asked him to come back in a half hour. We never saw him again. The shower curtain had no magnets in it even though they had a cast iron tub. We turned on the air conditioning when we entered the room. It never cooled the room in the two days we were there. Amenities were lacking. The ice machine on our floor was broken. They had an arcade. Nice touch for the kids. The change machine was out of order. They had a pool and sauna. Well the sauna was out of order. They had a general store. With the front deck all torn up. No breakfast buffet. Not much for your money.

Wonderful place to stay.

Location: Love there is a casino nearby
Only bad feature is having to pay for the extras, use of pool, exercise equipment for customers staying only one night and not using anything. Otherwise, we love the Eagle Ridge experience.

Very pleased but have one minor grievance

Accomodations very good but was surprised with daily amenity fee at check out. Had not been previously notified of such. Negotiated it down satisfactorily but don't care for such surprises. Restaurant serves a delicious sausage and corn chowder. Room very comfortable. Staff quite pleasant. Excellent spot for a retreat from city and suburbia.

I enjoyed my stay at Eagle Ridge.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, beautiful landscape
Eagle Ridge Resort and Spa is an excellent place to stay. The landscape is beautiful. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is very friendly, helpful and informative. There are dining areas in the main lodge, formal and informal. I had the breakfast buffet every morning and it was excellent and well priced. I did not golf on this trip but the courses looked beautiful. Galena is minutes away where there is much to see including historical sites, great restaurants and small shops of all kinds. This was a wonderful trip.

Overall- Beautiful hotel with lots of things to do.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet
When we booked Eagle Ridge, we thought we were staying in the hotel. We should have known better since the price was higher, but we were in a one bed villa. I was a little disapointed, but the unit did not disapoint. The unit smelled a little dingy at the beginning, but nothing an air freshner couldn't fix. We had a fire place with wood and a fire starter, very helpful!! Living room and bed room had flat screen t.v.'s, a plus! For extra activities, we could have rented (for free) a bike to ride on the trails around the resort. The resort area itself is huge! Lots of hills and winding curves to get to the hotel itself. Eagle Ridge was about 10 minutes from downtown Galena. Fortunately, my gps directed us in a direction of a backround to Mount Hope Rd which got us to downtown Galena quick. They have 4 golf courses. We golf the North course, which was in wonderful shape for late October! We rented golf clubs from them, these were not complimentary. They had a good size swimming pool with a basketball net and basketball. They had a sauna and a steam room. I was suprised they did not have a hot tub, that would have been nice! After golfing we were hungry, stopped at the bar/restaurant and I had a burger, amazing! My husband had a grilled chicken sandwich, also very good! The fries were delicious as well. Didn't have the pizza. The breakfast buffet on Sunday was over $20 a person so we passed. They also have a spa, which we did not get to visit. :( Overall, nice experience, would definitely go back to the hotel. I don't know if we would stay in the hotel, since we didn't stay there this time (maybe to save a little money next time!).
