Bed was very comfortable. The continental breakfast and pool were very nice. The staff was very good and seemed to be very knowledgeable of the area. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area.

Seemed to be an older property. Noticed that some maintenance could have been done on tiling and in elevators. Quiet area and takes a little driving to find from the interstate. It maybe appears that a new hotel is being built next door.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. You are correct we do have a new sister property being built next door that will actually open up an access road between the two hotels to make it easier to get to both properties. We are also in the process of being remolded at our current hotel so... More

We checked in after a long days drive. The clerk on duty was very helpful. He directed us to a place to eat and recommended a few things. As we were going to our room he said that the cookies would be out shortly.

This is an older Holiday Inn. The stay was ok but it will be great when the new hotel opens. The beds and rooms are just very old. The location was good and the service was great during the stay. The breakfast was the best thing for the family it started our day off great.

I'm sorry that you didn't get to experience the new beds we had put in. I'm sure that would've made for a more comfortable stay. We are currently in the process of remodeling the hotel as the new hotel is coming along greatly! We hope that you try us out again. Whitney Hendricks, General Manager More

This was just an average place. As basic and cookie cutter as they get. Much more expensive than the Prairie Inn and much more common and predictable. I've stayed here 100 times but only because its just like the other 99 places that I paid room rate and waited until my time was over. Not an adventure just putting in... More

Quiet, clean room, great front desk and good breakfast. They got it all. Also looks like a new larger HI is under construction a little down the road. A little out of the way and no walk to eats but I'll be back.

Holiday Inn Express has come to mean to us a name you can count on when pulling into a new city. Galesburg's motel offered a great stay in well-maintained rooms with a fine breakfast to get you started in the morning. Knowledgeable staff too. It was a bit difficult to find off the highway. Better markings would be a good... More

We stay here each year. This year was the best. The only problem was the shower shut off did not work. Our room was by the ice, vending and breakfast area but we were not bothered by any of it! This is a pet friendly hotel, I wish all Holiday Inns were. Their rooms are the best.
