I was bringing my child to move into her dorm at Knox College next morning early, and we found the Holiday Inn Exoress in Galesburg the best option for this stay (we otherwise stay, when possible, in a bed and breakfast closer to campus and for half the price--but also with half the amenities). I appreciated the jacuzzi and pool... More

I stayed here for a night on my way from Indiana to Minnesota. The hotel was clean and sorta quiet. The front desk did suggest that we get a room that wasn't overlooking the pool because it could be noisy. The rooms were clean, but you could tell that they needed some updating as it was showing their wear. The... More

This hotel is near the interstate, about 2 miles from Amtrak station. It is a very pleasant place. The three staff people I interacted with were very friendly, and helpful when I had questions. My room was cool and comfy, and very quiet! The TV got a lot of channels. In recent stays at other hotels I'd had trouble sleeping... More

The positive first. All the people, from the receptionist, to housekeeping and breakfast room staff, were efficient and friendly. There are no restaurants within walking distance (and you wouldn't want to) but Galesburg has a web-based delivery service which we found to be quick and good. HOWEVER, this hotel seriously damages the Holiday Inn brand. It is the quintessential bad... More

I have stayed here many times. The staff is always very pleasant and helpful. The rooms and common areas are clean. The hotel is a little dated and it is time to begin updating. However, with that being said, it is the most updated and cleanest hotel in Galesburg.

I stayed here long-term (several weeks) for work earlier this year. The staff is great, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I were in Galesburg. It is right next to the highway, and a Hy-Vee is across the street to stock your mini-fridge.

Nice hotel with easy access from interstate. Desk staff were all very friendly, very nice rooms, very good breakfast. Best thing was in the morning when we got ready to check out, they had a box of ice scrapers/brushes at the door for people to use to get the 6" of snow that fell overnight removed from our cars!

Admittingly, we stay in express hotels somewhat frequently - lots of school and road trips. This Holiday Inn Express is a very well run hotel. Even the complimentary breakfast, which I am often not a huge fan, was good. The staff was quite nice. The hotel, especially the rooms, were VERY clean. They were putting new carpet in the public...
