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...

Stayed here one night passing through. The carpeting is being replaced but things were kept neat and I did not have any issue. I had read a lot about this hotel being dated and rooms less than clean. My experience was just the opposite. They are updating the appearance and my King Room was spotless. I found the bedding and... More

I booked this hotel on a business trip visiting customers in Peoria, Davenport and Galesburg and this property was central to all. It is a "dated" HIE from the mid-90s. It is a good stopping point for folks traveling cross country, it is right by I-74 and has easy access from the freeway. It was clean and quiet. There is... More

Thank you for a wonderful over night get away! Everything was excellent! Easy parking, nice quiet room, awesome breakfast! Very friendly staff! I have knee problems and very much appreciated the easy access room we were given right off the elevator.

I travel for my job and stay at various HIX locations throughout Central Illinois. This property has been in the very bottom half, easily. My room was pretty dirty, a sticky ring on the nightstand, floor in bathroom had visible dirt, carpet looked like it hasn't been vacuumed in a few stays, walls in room were physically dirty as well....

An older HIE. However, upgraded showers, beds and linens. Nice amenities mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, soap, hair dryer, microwave and refrig. Unfortunately, the refrig was so loud, I had to unplug it to sleep. The temp was hard to control as well. Would have liked to have had a night light. Usually I just keep the light on in the bathroom... More
