We were provided complimentary stay at the Quad Cities Stoney Creek Hotel
in exchange for our honest opinion
We arrived in the Quad Cities late on Friday. Both my husband and I work and have a limited number of vacation days. For this reason, we usually prefer destinations close to home with a variety of entertainment options. Located just a couple of hours away the Quad Cities seemed perfect for a weekend getaway.

We often travel as a family of five plus another relative to help out with the kids while I work. That makes booking a hotel room a bit difficult. Solution? A place that fits all of us! This suite has it all – a king bed, twin over full bunk beds, and full sofa sleeper. Besides the sleeping quarters, it has plenty of space if you need to maneuver the stroller or have a family game night. This suite is 640 sq ft.!
The public areas of the hotel are filled with the unique accents and details.
On our second morning in the hotel, my two-year old discovered an old-time rocking horse quietly sitting in the corner of the reception area and was very happy to catch a ride on this rustic toy.
The breakfast area of the hotel is very spacious as well! The weekend of our stay Stoney Creek Hotel was hosting a wedding with many guests staying on site. While the dining area seemed full most of the time, we still had no problem finding space either inside or on the patio. The breakfast buffet has an impressive variety of food options to satisfy dietary needs or a picky 2-year olds.
