    « Clean and comfortable! »

    Clean and quiet room, comfortable bed, nice pool area and good breakfast choices. The cooked to order omelets were very good. There was also a nice restaurant within walking distance. We would stay here again.

    « Generally ok for an overnight stop »

    Stopped here on I 80 journey from Denver to NY. Clean and friendly, but my DH and I both woke up with backaches from too soft beds. I would give it one more star if price wasn't so high- not a $98 hotel- more like $78. Room on the small side and a bit dated. We did not try breakfast. Staff very hesitant to give us extra 30 minutes in room- but they did. Literature says 11 am checkout is strictly enforced. Never ran into that before.

    Found room clean, as reviewers had said. Nice desk help and restaurant next door. Would stay there again. Quiet and close to highway access. Breakfast offered eggs, omelets, pancakes, sausage, rolls, cereal, yogurt, toast, and drinks. Would cost $12 at any restaurant.

    « Came for a wedding »

    « Wonderful Place to Stay »

    My family and I stayed at Geneseo BW and it was wonderful. The staff is kind, helpful, and welcoming. All the times I've stayed at this hotel my room has been nice, clean, and comfortable. I've never had any major issues and the one minor issue I had was rectified immediately by the staff. My family and I will definitely stay at the Geneseo BW again in the future. Thank you BW Staff for being so awesome.

    « Best Western = Best Service »

    My two night stay at this hotel was made exceptional by the staff employees at this hotel...I was here to support a runner that raced on the Hennepin Canal all weekend and the staff at this hotel could not have been more supportive and caring...whatever I needed, asked how the race went, told me where to get a local newspaper that had info about the race in it...all of this just from knowing the purpose of my stay...I cannot say enough good things about this hotel...I travel 8-10 times per year and this experience was beyond exceptional!

    « Last minute lodging »

    Very quiet rooms. Nicely furnished and updated. Pretty typical room for this type of lodging and price point. Beds very comfortable. Several eating places within walking distance which was handy for our needs. Breakfast slightly different than other places we have stayed as they had a person cooking made to order omelette so they were fresh, not and with the ingredients you chose. Also new to us was a pancake machine. So many times you don't want an entire waffle but just a little so this machine was great as it made pancakes 2 per serving. Wish more p,aces had this. Friendly staff but maybe s little understaffed as at check out the same people are replenishing the breakfast room and manning the front desk...they did a good job in spite of being really busy!

    « Nice place... »

    This was a very nice looking place. I loved my rooms aesthetics and setup!! Everything was very clean and staff was polite. But, I must add there was a smell to the entire place, but especially my room. At first I thought maybe it was industrial glue as the carpet looked at though it was new, but it sure smelled like mold. It has been 22 hours since I was there and I washed and conditioned my hair, and it still holds that musty moldy smell. Otherwise great place!!

    « More than you might expect - friendly staff to boot! »

    Talk about caring service. When you check in (even very late at night), you'll be met with a smile before heading into a clean room and very comfortable bed. Expect to wake up to an awesome breakfast with various options hot and cold. You may even find a super friendly omelet chef biting at the bit to make you one heckuva breakfast scrambler. You'll enjoy the clean pool to round out your day. No hot tub, but the pool is soothing enough, as it is heated and the room is spacious.

    « Family Reunion »

    Very clean, friendly staff. Easy access to interstate 80. About 1 mile from downtown and The Cellar restaurant which is rated as one of the best places to have a steak dinner in Illinois. Also the local historical museum and close to Bishop Hill, historical site.

    « awful, dangerous and bad smelling »

    overpriced, dangerous, stench filled, without decent personnel. NEVER again staying at a Best Western after this place. Absolutely disgusting, hostile, and the smell in the room of ???cleaning fluid? to cover up the stink was nauseating.

    « Ms. Casey made it worth it »

    Had it not been for Ms. Casey and her concern for our well being during our stay, This may have been a poor experience. You can be assured that this lady had our best interest to heart and it is obvious she is like this with each customer. I recommend you give Ms. Casey a raise, she deserves it.

    « An oasis on a troubled vacation night »

    While driving in a horrible rainstorm we lucked into finding this oasis. Everything was top notch: good value, clean comfortable, modern, and convenient. All the mentioned would merit a superb review, but what set this place apart were the caring people, from Casey's humor and most excellent omelettes to Deb's setting us up for the rest of our day at departure. The next time we travel in this direction there is no doubt where we'll stay. Thank you BW.

    « Best stay ever »

    « Last minute stop- excellent! »

    We stopped here during a long road trip and found it to be just perfect! They got us 2 rooms next to each other for our family of 5. The pool was nice. We had a great meal at Sweet Peas which is right next door. The rooms were clean and hotel was well maintained. Breakfast in the morning was great- Casey makes a great omelette!! Thanks!!

    « Last Minute Stay »

    We stayed here at the last minute to break up a car ride to Chicago. I am very happy with our selection. We were able to get a room with 3 Queen beds, which was perfect for our family of 5. The room seemed recently remodeled and was very clean. The breakfast area was also very clean and my young children were able to enjoy the food! Very nice hotel for a small interstate town!

    « Fabulous »

    Overall everything was exceptional. If your hungry, food is within walking distance. My favorite was the work out room! The pool is indoor and is nice. The hotel looks fantastic. The room was very clean and smelled clean as well. staff is very friendly! Excellent customer service!

    « Friendly staff, clean rooms »

    We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. 5 stars to them! The pool was nice and clean. Our kids loved swimming in there. 4 stars for the inn itself because the queen beds seems very small in width. We were surprised by how small they felt. One of the mattresses in our room was too firm, but it seemed maybe the others were softer. To improve they could offer true queen width mattresses to better fit families.

    « Outstanding Customer Service »

    This hotel exceeded our expectations. The room offered to our family was amazing and clean. The breakfast was great, the pool was well kept, the staff members were very helpful and I would stay there again. We chose this hotel because it was right off the exit and near restaurants as well as WalMart.

    « Very nice people »

    The staff at this location are very friendly. The hotel is clean and nice. Geneseo is a great city to visit. Easy access from off I-80 and close to several locations to eat and shop. Downtown is only minutes away with great small town shopping and parks to relax in.

    « Wonderful Stay »

    We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. The fresh omelets made each morning by Casey were wonderful. Nice breakfast selection. Hotel was quiet. We did not use the pool, so I cannot comment on that. Loved having the sink area outside of the bathroom. If we are ever in this area again, this is the hotel we will stay in.

    « Very pleasant stay! »

    This hotel is very clean, well run, and managed. They have nice, newly carpeted, super clean rooms. It was nice not to worry about the cleanliness. The receptionist Casey is a doll. Friendly, fun, and helpful. And she cooks a great omelet in the morning for breakfast. She is awesome. The owner leaves his cell phone number to call him with any complaints or problems. I have never found that happen before. AAA+ rating.

    « Overall Excellent »

    I was very surprised the first time I stayed at BW because everything including the customer service was so pleasant. This time around it was just as nice. The continental breakfast was really good, the hotel was clean and welcoming, and the employees were helpful and attentive. I enjoyed the relaxing and peaceful stay at this hotel. I would definitely recommend and stay at this BW again. I had an overall excellent experience.

    « Excellent Stay »

    We enjoyed our stay here very much. The hotel was very quiet, and there were restaurants nearby, so we did not have to go far for dinner. Breakfast was also very good. The staff person upon check in was extremely helpful and courteous.

    « Super nice and friendly staff! »

    After a twelve hour trip, we called and asked if it was possibly to get a room and check in early since it was 10 in the morning on a Saturday. They had no issues and we got to check in early. The hotel and room was nice and clean. Beds were super comfy. The staff was incredibly nice, friendly, and helpful! Would stay at again!!

    « Great Place to Stay »

    The staff was very friendly, The room was clean and well kept. Sunday morning one of the ladies from the front desk was making omelets to order in the breakfast room. Nice touch. Even the towels were changed during our two day stay -- we had hung them up and expected them to be used again on the second day. Good service.

    « Better than I expected! »

    I don't usually stay at Best Western in general but this time I thought I'd give it a try. No other good options in the area so I went with the best reviews on where else but TripAdvisor. Staff were all very friendly. Hotel is clean and up to date. Really clean and tidy breakfast bar (normally I don't even mess with continental breakfast but this time the staff were honest about theirs being very good. The pool looked very nice although I didn't use it. Internet is really speedy which is a big plus for business travel.

    « Great small town to stay in! »

    We looked in nearby cities for hotels, but all were booked due to college graduations that weekend. We drove to Geneseo, with hopes of finding a nice quite place....and we did! Casey at the front desk was soooo nice. She offered to make us reservations at the Cellar while we got checked in to our room. I highly suggest eating there! It was a great suggestion. The rooms were nice and the breakfast we great. The pool was not heated, so make sure you are ready for the shock :)

    « Excellent stay, Great breakfast »

    My husband, our son, and I loved our stay. The pool was clean and great, and the breakfast cook made to order omelettes(outstanding). Our room was clean and quiet.. They allowed us a late check out due to it be rainy outside, and our local appointments did not start until 2:00pm. Both young ladies who checked us in, and checked us out were friendly and polite. Thank you so much..

    « Way overpriced »

    This was the most expensive hotel I stayed at on my road trip, the lady at the front desk wasn't friendly. the curtains in my room were broken and the curtain rod was just laying on the desk. The coffee machine was filthy, my coffee came out with a film on top.

    « Geneseo Best Western is great »

    I am not normally a BEST WESTRN HOTEL person. I try to stay at 2-3 other brands in most cases. In the case of the Geneseo IL Best Western I booked this hotel mostly due the proximity of the hotel to where I needed to do business in Geneseo. I was WONDERFULLY SURPRISED by the Great Service, the CLEAN ROOM, the fantastic swiming pool area and the hot breakfast. This stay has completely changed my view of what a Best Western Brand Hotel can be and I will continue to look at Best Western Hotels during future stays, with the hope that they are as GOOD as the GENESEO Best Western Hotel. Thanks...

    « Clean, quiet hotel »

    We stopped for the night at the Best Western Geneseo Inn and were pleasantly surprised with the courtesy and helpful people working there. They got us right in to a clean, nice room. Breakfast in the morning was good, but you may have to request additional food, some of it was gone when we went through. The staff made us what we wanted as soon as we asked. Again, the staff was right there helping us if we needed anything. It is a great place to stop for the night.

    « Great Hotel! »

    We were in town for the night, taking kids around the states for a choir concert. The kids stayed with members of the church and us as the drivers stayed in hotels. This was the best hotel in the five (5) day trip we stayed at. The Rooms were clean, modern and well kept. You can tell the hotel was recently remodeled. Great breakfast selection, made to order pancakes, how cool was that!!! Over all this hotel was just awesome. Thank You and Keep up the great work!!

    We recently held my daughters Birthday party at this hotel. We booked the 3 bed suite which gave us plenty of room for an air mattress also. The girls used the pool, and had a blast in the room. Room was clean and comfortable, the pool was perfect for the girls to enjoy. They might consider putting in a hot tub :)

    I've stayed here many times and have always had a clean room, enjoyed a full breakfast, experienced a seamless check-in , enjoyed the fresh fruit at all hours and well, I can't imagine staying anywhere else. Geneseo is great town and you can enjoy all it has to offer!

    « Clean reasonable rates - discount for Triple AAA »

    Room was clean quiet and near a nice small town that had some interesting eateries and breakfast places. The Hotel itself offered a free breakfast but I like to do a little exploring. I would recommend this hotel for travelers along I-80 it has easy on and off access to freeway.

    « Clean, comfortable, quiet »

    We enjoyed our stay here - sometimes Best Westerns can be hit or miss, this was a hit. Genuinely friendly greeting upon our arrival, easy check-in. Our room was clean, well furnished, fridge and microwave, wifi, very comfortable bed and pillows. Breakfast was the average assortment one would expect, plenty of options to choose from. Coffee was meh - the kind made by some machine, not freshly brewed. But certainly fine. Didn't use the the pool, but it looked nice. We would definitely go back if we were ever in the area again. Right off the highway and easy to find, with several dining options within walking distance or short drive.

    The really is a beautiful place to stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We arrived latter in the evening but the kids still enjoyed the pool for a while. The room was nice and quiet, the beds were great better than all the other places we stayed on our 3 week trip. The breakfast was wonderful and they had a nice selection of hot and cold items. The motel was nice and clean.
