The room was spacious, neat and clean. Some difficulty attempting to pull luggage up the stairs. An elevator would certainly be an asset. Staff that we encountered were helpful and pleasant. We had a very pleasant stay. CB

An employee gave out my room number. As a single woman traveling alone, this is ENTIRELY unacceptable. My friend stopped by with coffee and donuts. He looks entirely friendly and honest; however, it could have been ANYONE. Even he was appalled at how easy it was to get my room number. He didn't have to press or ask a second... More

I'd recommend staying elsewhere, but seeing as how Galesburg is a small town, the Holiday Inn Express might be full and you may have little choice. If you do stay here, I'd recommend that you keep quiet after you endure the poor service - the painfully slow breakfast where if you don't ask for every particular thing - "could I... More

We didn't have any great expectations about where we were going to stay. Got a last minute reservation ... the only room left. We were pleasantly suprised and found the place very nice. and clean ... very comfortable beds with extra pillows and a nice patio. Enjoyed the stay.

Booked a block of rooms here for our daughter's wedding this weekend, since it claims to be the best hotel in a town with few options. Reservation staff did a horrible job getting the reservations under the group, even after I spent an hour on the phone with them a month ago. Rooms are old but adequate, but bedding and... More

Very nice and clean. Helpful staff. Area well kept. The hotel staff was attentive. I did not like the lobby area-very heavy looking antique cabinets- did not follow thru with decor-not really hotel lobby look.

I am very sorry to hear that your stay with us was not up to your satisfaction or the level of service we strive for. We do apologize that our pool and restaurant was closed. We did have a filter problem in the pool area; that part was coming in from Chicago Illinois. Unfortunately, at the same time we were... More

I was driving during the middle of a winter storm when it was getting dark. I ended up stopping for the night at this Best Western, and was pleasantly surprised! My room was spacious, bed was cozy, and had many "homey" touches to give me some respite while on the road. The one minor complaint is that, after sensing that... More

We have stayed here three times now and have been very happy w ith the hotel and especially the beds. We will stay here again We haven't tried the on site restaurant. The McDonalds and Hy Vee are just down the street so we've used them mostly..

I've stayed at this Hotel many times and have always chosen to return rather than stay elsewhere while in Galesburg, Illinois. This is a nice hotel, very clean, and comfortable.. Some lengthy walks from room to restaurant/lobby are required, but overall, no complaints.
