This hotel is very run down and dirty. The entire place smells like cigarette smoke. There are nothing but shady looking characters hanging around. The location is very convieniet to Knox College and the Amtrak station but not worth it. Stay at any hotel on North Henderson Street and take a taxi there. I can't believe this place has not... More

In general, the hotel is very run down, 'under renovation' work, and in need of a thorough cleaning. The restaurant next door is good, with a buffet line option. The elevators are worn out, with one elevator stopping on floor two all the time, both directions. No one on the desk seemed to care. This hotel is downtown, on the... More

From the overwhelming odor of cigarette smoke in the entire building, everything was a disaster. The room reserved for three had no toilet paper hanging from the dispenser, towels for one and no cups or glasses anywhere. The WiFi didn't work. A dog left alone in a nearby room howled and barked all evening. The old TV had very poor... More

I decided last minute to drive into Galesburg from the Quad Cities as I was catching an early Amtrak train and was not sleepy. I was able to book the room easily online and got to the hotel around midnight. They were pretty busy still checking people in but I was able to get checked in without much delay. The... More

This is the America's Best Value Inn on Public Square (circle) in Galesburg, right? My experience certainly differed from all the negative ones. I had biked 50 miles from Macomb, planning to take Amtrak back home. But when I discovered that mechanical problems would cause the train to leave Chicago late and get me back home at 1:00AM, I decided... More

What a dump!!!!! Front desk people were friendly.. Got to the room and quickly noticed hair in the sink and shower, hardly no toilet paper, had to ask for towels but then decided NOT to take a shower in such a dirty nasty shower tub. Walls had writing and holes in them. Bed had sheets with stains and burn holes.... More

Everything works, just. This place needs a good clean and some money spending on it. I am writing this lying in the bed of one of the rooms, not sure if I am being bitten! At least the wifi works. Just one night so hopfully we won't be murdered in our beds. The train noise is driving me crazy but... More

If I was traveling by myself and didn't mind caring a concealed weapon this would be a good hotel. It was according to local legend a Days Inn, a Ramada, a ...

Low rates. Front desk person greeted us quickly, cordially, and got us checked in faster than any other hotel we've ever stayed in. We booked several rooms for our group. The mattresses were hard, one was bowed in the middle. Several sheets and one comforter were torn and/or dirty. Caked on dust behind and under all furniture in every room.... More
