Best Western Oglesby Inn

Reviewed May 23, 2013

This was clean & friendly hotel with good rooms and a nice full breakfast - I usually don't like BW, but this one is on my 'like' list. great place for the price. our whole family stayed here - all six of us so we had to get two rooms, but it was still cheaper than most other places/lodges in the Starved Rock area.

Room Tip: get 2nd floor -it's quieter.

Thought we were going to stay one night. But the weather up north turned REALLY ugly, so we stayed for 3. Great breakfast selection. Lots of shopping and nice restaurants in the area. Pool and hot tub made this a mini vacation for us. Staff very helpful and friendly. Rooms quiet and comfortable - couldn't have asked for anything more . . . except someone to shovel the snow out of driveway in Minnesota!

Room Tip: Lobby and elevator is at one end, so if you don't like walking . . . ask to be located near the...

Stayed one night at this Best Western. Was greeted promptly by a very friendly and informative front desk (she had just come on shift at 3pm). Our room was ready, very clean, simple. One sink outside the toilet and shower room. Bed was extremely comfortable!! A/C unit is not top notch, and made quite a racket, but it cooled our room to desired temp. Iron worked well. Included breakfast with decent coffee, oatmeal, yogurt, eggs, sausage, waffles, bagels, etc and USA Today. Ample parking. Was very quiet, despite a large # of guests that night. Take Walnut Road east to MJ's Pub for great bar, pub food, and kind owner. Also, the famous "rootbeer stand" was pretty darn fabulous.

Room Tip: Room at the end of the hall second level, facing parking lot (vs. highway)

This hotel has the perfect location for Starved Rock or for Lassalle Speedway. The rooms were clean and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was fair and employees were friendly. The only thing that could have been better was that we stayed 2 nights and our soap and shampoo were not restocked. Other than that it was a great weekend.

Nice hotel with good ameneties. Never seen this good of a breakfast in a Hotel so reasonably priced. Breakfast consists of regular pastaries, toast, yougurt, 4 different kind of juices, 4 different type of cereals, waffle iron, freshly cooked eggs, bacon and sausages. Coffee is pretty decent and available throughout the day in the lobby. I wish there are more hotels like these.

Room Tip: Rooms on east side are away from highway therefore quiter

This BW sits adjacent to I-39 and just south of I-80 for convenient access. This is very conveniently located to nearby Starved Rock State Park. This 2-story BW seemed a little bit older. It had a covered drive-thru, but there were 2 manual, single-entry doors that you had to go through when entering or exiting--a sign of an older hotel. The drive-thru and entry area seemed a little dirty, but guess that is okay since we were at the end of the winter season for bad weather. There really wasn't any lobby area--just a walking area between them that led to the rooms and the elevator. Upon entering, you came to the receptionist desk (rather small) on the right and the breakfast area on the left. There were a couple of chairs for guests to use while waiting. Wish there had been 24/7 coffee available for guests.

On the bright side, we had a fast check-in. This hotel sits next to KFC/Taco Bell for a walk across the parking lot and other eateries nearby as well. There is a laundry available as well as a fitness center with 4 machines. An indoor pool with jacuzzi is available, also. I like where the business center was located. It was on the second floor above the lobby with entry only by your room card--a private location. The hotel also gave us the accommodation we requested--top floor and away from the elevator.

The hallways seemed a little bit more narrow that is common today. We had a room with 2 comfortable queen beds. It was clean, but a little small. Available for use was a fridge, microwave, safe, iron and board, clock with a large readout, round table with 2 chairs, 2 extra mirrors for beautifying oneself, and a flat screen TV with decent satellite lineup. Coffee and tea were available in the room.

The bathroom contained the toilet and the shower/tub combo with a nice exhaust fan that really worked. The sink and mirror were a little small and located inside the room. There was a hair dryer.

The breakfast area was rather small, and the attendant had a hard time keeping food containers full. This was a Saturday morning, but the hotel definitely was not full. I compliment BW for using fiberboard for plates, bowls, and cups instead of styrofoam. Plastic utensils were used. The breakfast was the normal fare with both hot and cold items and was okay and got us going for the day.

Was given a nice rate--we are seniors.

This motel is conveniently located immediately off I-39 at Oglesby, IL. There are various fast food options and a family-style restaurant just down the road. The lobby area and rooms were clean. The bed was quite comfortable. The room I stayed in also had a sofa, desk, chair, mini frig, microwave,and coffee maker, plus complimentary wireless internet. The complimentary breakfast was much better than your typical motel fare -- it included hot eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, and a waffle maker. I didn't have time to use the fitness center and the pool was closed for maintenance when I was there, so I can't speak to those.
