Discovered this during return trip to west coast. Hotel is clean, quiet and well managed. Staff we dealt with was attentive, friendly and very accommodating. Beds were very comfortable. One of the best we visited on 3 week cross country drive.

We were extremely pleased with the Galesburg Best Western - it was clean and comfortable, lots of great grounds for the kids to run around upon, a super pool, not over chlorinated, very clean. A great place to spend a night!

We arrived at the hotel without reservations and were very pleased to get the last available room.We had traveled by motorcycle from PA headed to Yellowstone and had traveled all day and we were tired. We ate in the restaurant and dinner was very enjoyable. Service was excellent.

A unexpected delight set back off the highway to relax and unwind. Beautiful grounds with a nice indoor pool. Nice courtyard with rooms with a patio. Can sit on the patio and enjoy fresh air. Staff friendly and helpful. Internet provided. Close to downtown to visit antique shops or hop on the interstate and go to Bishop Hill.

No complimentary breakfast. No elevator & staff couldn't find us a room on the 1st floor. Had problems with internet connection. Restaurant food was terrible. Bed was too soft for my husband. Pool was nice but there was no stationary bicycle in the workout room.

We have a full service restaurant on property offering more than a continental would. I am glad the staff did try to find you a 1st floor room. They are usually the first rooms to go. It is often hard to sleep when you aren't in your own bed. We have Serta mattresses and they have a high rating. I... More

The Best Western Prairie Inn is a great place to stay when visiting Galesburg and the surrounding communities. It is a clean and friendly place to stay with a restaurant on site. The only complaint would be that the restaurant closes way too early.

This hotel was very nice. I think this was the first hotel that had real wood furniture (complete with coasters everywhere). Lots of TV channels, internet worked great. The restaurant on premise was excellent, with very reasonable prices. They stop serving a little early, though, at 8:30pm. Most people seemed to show up around 8:15, so many that our server... More

This hotel has a restaurant , lobby and a pool. All of them are very nice. I was pleasantly surprised at the accommodations and was very glad I reserve the room ahead of time. I left the hotel looking for a cute little restaurant and all's we found were chains. I would have eaten in the hotel over a Steak... More

The hotel is large with conference and ball rooms and located in a quiet neighborhood. It has an onsite restaurant and bar. The room was clean with pillow-top bed and flat screen TV. I did not use the pool but did use the fitness room. The only problem I had was with the WiFi. I could not get online and... More

So sorry for your WiFi problem, but as we write we are running new cable and putting in new routers as the internet company can't seem to find the issue with the sporadic service. We hope you will give us another try. It was nice to hear everything else was good. More

My stay here was enjoyable and relaxing. The staff is friendly and very helpful and the accommodations were nice. The only issue I had was the wireless internet was unavailable in my room for the majority of the stay and it wasn't up until the morning of check-out. Other than that, I would stay here again.
