Enjoyed my honeymoon here in the Covington suite! Breakfast brought to your room daily upon request, on-site restaurant with excellent food, and a private entrance to the suite. Ample parking including electric car stations. Close drive to downtown area (also with free parking). Innkeepers are welcoming and friendly, and truly care if you enjoyed your stay.

Property's Favorite Review
This property is wonderful and a must-visit for anyone in Illinois. We had the best stay, and the staff was polite and friendly. The food was delicious and the ambiance was spectacular. Several reviews say it's very romantic- and yes, it is, but this is also a great spot for families or friends to come visit. There is something for everyone here.

I chose to stay at the Goldmoor Inn for one night while passing through Galena. I’d hoped to find the perfect location to return to with a friend later in the year. I thought the location and suite were lovely and the front desk staff friendly and accommodating. I especially enjoyed watching the birds frolic in the fountain as the sun set. The cookies and breakfast were good, though as a tea drinker I was glad I had brought my own set up (coffee appeared to be my only option). For the inflated prices on everything, however, one anticipates near perfection which I did not experience. Unfortunately I paid a great deal for a grisly steak for dinner. Due to the extra high rate for the 90 minute massage I paid for, I had high expectations. It was average (I get a lot of massages) and was more like 70 minutes.

Wonderful stay in the turret room - incredibly helpful and friendly staff and gorgeous scenic view over the Mississippi - will return soon! Galena and JD county are an underappreciated treasure and well worth the visit

Husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. Stayed in a cabin and it was very charming and cozy. Loved the hot tub and scenery. Had coffee every morning on the porch and enjoyed the view and hearing the birds. Breakfast was delivered to our cabin each morning at the time of our choice and it was spectacular. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was the best. Be sure and ask what evenings they are open to serve dinner so you don't miss out. There is a horse farm in view down the hill you can watch or make reservations to ride. The view is so beautiful. We will be staying again in the future.
