4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2007

We stayed at this hotel and were pleased. The room was quiet and clean. The breakfast was a bit better than average and the hotel staff was friendly.

I happened upon this hotel as I was traveling to Iowa. Wow..what an impressive property!! The staff went out of their way to make my stay very pleasant. The hotel's restaurant had the most delicious, freshly prepared items and priced reasonably. There was entertainment in the lounge which was also enjoyable. This hotel was definitely one of the finest hotels, charmingly furnished, exceptionally clean and comfortable, and excellent customer service...top notch people in Galesburg IL

I stayed in the single suite in the hotel, and slept on a foldout couch. When I got ready for bed (at 11 pm)I could not find any sheets or blankets. I ended up sleeping rolled up in a bedspread. When I called the front desk the following morning, I was told that they only provide linens if they know someone is going to be using the bed -- the implication being that it was my fault for not telling them. A very uncomfortable night, and no desire on the part of management to deduct any of the cost of the room. I would not advise anyone to stay at this hotel.

I've stayed at all of the brand name hotels in Galesburg and this is definitely the nicest one. The hotel is beautifully decorated and clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is exceptionally large and deep although the pool side hot tub is somewhat small with a capacity of only 5 people. All 3 meals are available in the hotel's "Homestead" restaurant where the atmosphere is relaxing and comfortable. The complimentary continental breakfast is smaller than those at other area hotels, but adaquate. You can opt to order the hot breakfast instead, although it is a bit pricey. There is a large, pretty courtyard where you can stroll and relax. Those who have difficutly walking need to be aware that there is NO elevator to the second floor. I was fortunate to get a main floor room and will plan to make my reservations well in advance the next time since my spouse cannot climb stairs. Overall, if you are willing to pay a little more for a nicer hotel, this is the BEST choice in Galesburg.

I more or less stumbled onto this motel as I came off the interstate and I couldn't have been more impressed. Much nicer than hotels twice its price. All staff I encountered were very friendly and professional. My king room was in excellent shape and well furnished. The bar and restaurant were undoubtably the best in town. Breakfast was very low priced for a place as nice as this. The pool and hot tub were large, warm and well maintained. Everything here exceeded my expectations.

Great pool. Rooms were nicely furnished. Breakfast was decent. Hotel is about 2 miles from downtown and walking there is not really an option (no sidewalks, traffic, etc.) but free shuttle around town made up for that. Hotel staff were friendly. Clearly a well run establishment.

We were extremely impressed with the quality of the rooms at this hotel. Very upscale for the price. The free high-speed access is a nice bonus.
