Unless you really aren't looking for a place to sleep, stay away from this place! Room too warm, noisy neighbors, noisy interstate. Internet would not load. No instructions with TV remote. There are many other motels in the area to choose and next visit we'll be in one of them.

We have stayed in numerous hotels in Galesburg while visiting family. This was our first time at Best Western. The rooms were recently renovated and did not smell like a hotel. The beds were comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were updated but did not raise sink height with the update.Our room faced the interstate and was very quiet.

We enjoy staying at this Best Western when visiting family in Galesburg, IL, depending on the rate we get. We skipped this hotel twice this summer because the rate increase for that time wasn't what we wanted to pay. The rooms are nice, beds are comfortable, location is quiet. No free breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay here. It's a complete facility, and the rooms are very nice, quiet, and well appointed. Be forewarned that there is no free breakfast, but you do get a 10% off coupon for the restaurant. The staff was polite and efficient.

I try to stay at this Best Western whenever I'm working in the area. Rooms are spotless and nicely decorated. Love that unlike other hotels, I never wake up congested or with a headache from an unclean heating/cooling room unit! Just a nice, clean, cozy experience every time and a super comfy bed. I also appreciate that each room has... More

Check in and staff were friendly. Probably is older looking and I think they try to modernize it the best they can. It was clean and comfortable. Had two queen beds, room was comfortable. We are breakfast at the hotel restaurant. There was one waitress serving the whole place, she needed more help. The food was pretty good.
