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.
