I needed an overnight stay in the Galesburg area because I was attending a wedding. I found this property very modern and the king room accommodation was a pleasant experience. I have not stayed in a Best Western property for many years. However, as a travel agent, I will recommend this property to my clients as an option because my...

Beds were good and rooms were decent. The hallways had a musty smell. The continental breakfast was the usual fare, nothing outstanding. This property is now using soap dispensers and they are mounted to low to the counter, making it difficult to get the soap in your hand. Upon trying to return the room key to the front desk we...

I stay at this location often. Consistently good service, comfy bed, nice furnishings. This hotel has a restaurant, so don't expect a free breakfast in the morning. Have never eaten there (mainly because I never leave enough time and have to hurry to appointments!) but they have a menu board outside the entry, and the breakfasts appear very reasonably priced....

Albuquerque, United States
Reviewed 10 June 2016

The room is spacious with queen beds, refrigerator, and microwave. There is also a restaurant but as a guest you are entitled to a standard breakfast consisting of waffles, hard boiled eggs, cereal, juices, coffee, oatmeal, and fruit. It's located just off the highway, so it's convenient to getting in and out of Galesburg, but it's little distant from the...

Room was clean but a bit dated. I'm not a big fan of the "community" soap, shampoo & lotion dispensers in the bathroom but I do understand the environmental impact of individual bottles. There was only 1 piece of tissue left in the box & 1/4 toilet paper roll left. I fully support conservation but I was thankful I only...

I was impressed with this Best Western. The room was spacious and clean. The handicapped accessible shower had a shower chair as well. There were plenty of towels. There was a nice sized fridge and microwave in the room. The highway was a little loud, the hall carpet could be replaced, and the wifi was sketchy, but other than that...

POLK CITY, Iowa
Reviewed 31 May 2016

Hotels/motels in the Galesburg area are much higher priced than in neighboring larger towns (Peoria, Moline, etc.). This Best Western is the exception. It is reasonably priced and our room was recently remodeled and was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was nothing to brag about, but for the reasonable price of the room, it was easily forgiven. Everything else...
