The Prarie Inn is a great place to stay with many amenities and a wonderful staff. The hotel is older, but well maintained. It is located just off the interstate in a beautiful wooded setting. It has a great restraunt and lounge area.

Used to be the best place to stay in Galesburg as they had a restaurant and a lounge onsite. I will start looking for a new place to stay on next trip to the area. New owners appear to be trying to close it like the last couple of properties they have owned.

Robert,

Thank you for your feedback about our hotel.

The owners only own this Best Western Plus Prairie Inn so we are not very sure what that was meant for. We do have a nice restaurant onsite that includes a lounge and a very full menu.

We would still like it if you would continue to come to our hotel! Please feel free to let us know right away when we are not exceeding your expectations, we always want our guest happy and comfortable.


If I can be of assistance in the future, please don't hesitate to contact me at (309) 343-7151.


Thank you again for taking the time to complete the survey. We appreciate your loyalty to our brand.


Sincerely.

Hotel was nice. I think the court yard could have used some watering. There was no hot tub but the pool was nice. Great place for events. It's a perfect place for a wedding reception or family gathering. Beds were comfortable. Nice large TV in each room.

As a child I spent alot of time here ofcourse it was a Sheraton back then. The hotel is very well kept for the age. Room was super clean and had a fresh smell to it. The beds are very comfortable. We had a small gathering at the pool which was very clean the water super clear. Missed the hot tub though. We have stayed at alot of different hotels but this one is worth a return visit. Staff super nice as well Jennifer took my reservation getting us a super rate. Amber checked us in which only took a minute. We will be back. Thank you for keeping my old dreams alive was like coming home.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are nice.

Clean hotel with wonderful outside courtyard area which is great for families with kids. Room was fairly clean - some dust behind the TV but overall nice. Decent exercise room and decent pool. Not impressed with the restaurant food quality but the hotel itself was nice.

Cindy,

Thank you for taking the time to review us. We are glad you were able to enjoy our many amenities! We are very proud of the services we offer and are constantly improving them. We have recently purchased new equipment for the fitness center, repainted the indoor pool area, and we are in the midst of revamping our dining room menu.

If you enjoyed our courtyard, which is great for relaxing in, I would definitely recommend staying in one of our courtyard rooms the next time you are in town. They are on the ground floor and full length, sliding glass doors that walk out into the courtyard. These rooms also have their own patio set up for guests to sit outside!

We hope to see you again at the Prairie Inn!

Sincerely,
Tejal

I stayed here on business. I am a truck driver and have to find accomedations when my drive time is up. I found this hotel in the area I was in and found it to be a bit higher in cost than in most other places but it was a nice clean quiet place.
