    « Very Clean »

    It was a very clean hotel with friendly staff. Not over crowded and located close to highway ramp. You must pay attention to entering the facilities because it isn't clear in the dark. Gas station located beside entrance. Town doesn't have many places to eat but hotel is great for in-route rest

    « Surprisingly Good! »

    Got there kind of late and they had a room,so we took it not expecting too much. We were wrong, very nice people and very clean and comfortably. The price was reasonable and a nice breakfast too. Would stay here again,very nice!

    « A convenient rest stop »

    Located immediately off I-80, this property was convenient for an overnight rest stop. Was not impressed with breakfast as most main items were pre-packaged and unhealthy; pool was closed and the fitness room needed updating.

    « Great place to stay! »

    My mother and I were in town visiting family. We arrived a little before check in time but had no problem checking in early. The staff were friendly and awesome. Apparently there was a big wedding party booked this weekend as well, so I was worried it would get a bit noisy, but I didn't hear one peep. We were also on the side of the hotel by the interstate and couldn't hear any noise from that either. The room was clean and looked very nice. Bathrooms were clean as well. We didn't have time to visit the pool, but it looked great too. We had a great stay and will definitely stay here again in the future.

    « One nights stay...Perfect! »

    Just passing through on I80 and saw the reliable Best Western sign. After 500 miles on 2 wheels I was ready for a break, and boy did I get it....Very clean, and the front desk clerk must have seen I was beat, and sunburned, and gave me a bottle of water. The room was superb and breakfast the next morning before I rolled out was great. Not much around the area, but this place is a gem..! Thanks...

    « Best Hotel! »

    The hotel was exceptionally clean and well-cared for. The breakfast choices were especially good--they even had almond milk and coconut milk. They had some pet-friendly rooms. It is right off I-80--perfect for anyone passing through. The manager was the nicest guy in the world.

    « Sketchy! Wasn't worth the money! »

    We stayed a night for our friends' wedding. The room and the bathroom were clean, but bathroom wasn't equipped with basic toiletries and hot water was inconsistent. Breakfast was disappointing. There weren't many options and the ingredients weren't fresh. At the night of the wedding, they charged alcohol for various prices and charged water and soda even though it was already paid for. They also attempted to double book rooms to a different wedding party in order to charge more which led to my friends having to fight for the rooms the reserved a year prior. In addition to this they attempted to steal the leftover wedding cake by lying that it was thrown out. The owners of this hotel are out to make money and will do it in any way they can. Stay away from this hotel.

    « Disappointing »

    Disappointing. Be careful when booking rooms for large groups. Management wasn't eager to give guest the contracted discount. I had to call in for them...on more than one occasion. Again, management was okay during the event until questioned about some "misunderstandings" the next day. He blamed other guests instead of taking responsibility. It took 2 face-to-face meetings after weekend to resolve the "misunderstandings". Stay on top of them or go somewhere else if you don't want the hassle...

    « got super room upgrade as platinum member »

    front desk gentleman was below average in welcoming had to ring bell to get him but more than made it up with upgrade pool was okay town is very small depressed. overall i would go again faust for upgrade

    « Would stay here again! Had a good time! »

    The overall experience was great! We stayed there for three nights for family reunion,we arrived too early but Maddy- The Manager of the Hotel was very welcoming,he made sure that we got our room few hrs before the check in time,it was nice of him.Its a nice hotel in a small town,very calm & serene.There is a nice restaurant in town,went there for dinner,Hotel was nice and clean with good breakfast & faster internet,the housekeeping made sure to make our room nice and tidy everyday. I have no complaints at all and look forward to doing this all over again one day in the near future.

    « Wish I had known... »

    Older hotel in need of many repairs. Lukewarm showers at best, running water in toilets all night long, burnt out/flickering lightbulbs. The "full hot breakfast" listed on our reservations did not happen. Toast and rubberized jelly. Want something hot? cook your own waffle. No eggs, no bacon, no sausage. Overcharges on bills, although the staff did correct when brought to their attention. Keep on moving down the road for a better hotel.

    « Great Experience »

    I stayed here for two nights, location is very convenient as it's right off Interstate,friendly staff, clean & spacious room,nice & comfortable beds, faster wifi & good breakfast, Will definitely stay again & highly recommend

    « I love staying at this hotel »

    Best western annawan is one of my favorite hotels to stay at they treat you like family most of the time I check in late at night so I would normally miss the breakfast but they always make sure to leave it out for me and make sure I don't leave hungry

    « Works for me! »

    Desk clerks very helpful and accommodating. Room nice - mattresses maybe a bit used - could feel springs. But all else was in good shape. Breakfast not as elaborate as other BW. But enough to last to lunch! Lower price than others, so it all evens out. Very rural area - state park to visit, and a restaurant, and a great ice cream place nearby. Open area, relaxing. All things considered, I'd definitely stay here again.

    « It's clean and the staff is very pleasant and accommodating. »

    This hotel is awesome because of the location and convenience . Additionally, the staff treated me with the upmost hospitality and I felt warmly welcomed. The environment was extremely peaceful and relaxing to say the least. Thank you for your outstanding service during my stay. I plan on recommending this hotel to all my family, friends and colleagues.

    « Trying Hard to Measure Up »

    Good location near the Interstate - easy off/on. Maddy at the front desk bent over backwards to make our stay pleasurable. Rooms have fridge/micrwave/HDTV. Breakfast is on the skimpy side; however, there are a few hot items. Spacious parking lot is dimly lit. Rooms could use a touch-up.

    « Best place to stay. I come here every Six months. We always stay here. Very caring staff. »

    We stay here every six months. Very caring staff. Great heated pool They always take good care of my family when I am training. Always a great place to stay. They are always very helpful when we need anything.

    « Nice clean rooms, but pool not the best. »

    The rooms were nice, clean and quiet. Pillows were comfortable! But the pool area is dated. The breakfast was not as good as some recent hotels we stayed in but we were here on a Monday so perhaps that made a difference.

    « Family overnight stay »

    We needed a hotel close to family & this location seemed to be the best choice. However it would have been nice to know prior to reserving the room that their pool was out of order. Paper thin walls & vending machines that only took coins made this a not so enjoyable overnight stay. Not too sure we will stay again even though it's very close to our family....I would honestly drive farther than stay here again.

    « A must stay experience »

    Hotel staff that cares clean rooms and real breakfast plenty of parking big enough for what ever you drive huge pool and super comfortable pilliows over all of your looking for a place to stay or host an event this is where I go and I love my stays every time.

    « don't bother »

    not given reserved room, given a room that was not cleaned, extremely poor and un-attractive breakfast which we turned down, no staff present, burned-out lights in parking lot, grass not mowed, shrubs not trimmed, one of out-side signs not lit, very poor place to stay!

    « Staff and management need training in how to treat guest »

    I found the attitude of staff and their logic to be confusing annd demeaning. Staff ignored female guest in front of them to assist male guest behind them. They charge more for a standard room then a king. Attitude toward me( I am a female senior citizen traveling alone) very demeaning. I will never return.

    « Good basic hotel that had rooms at last minute »

    It's pretty rare that we are a walk-up for a hotel, but managed to do that after midnight on a trip. We had planned on camping, but the weather and other factors were not conducive, so we stopped by the Best Western and got a room for the night. It's a relatively old Best Western, but in reasonable shape. I was pretty grungy when I got there and wanted to take a shower, but the water was only lukewarm. It was hot the next morning, though. The room was clean, but clearly a bit dated. The best part was the breakfast. They had the waffle makers and lots of other options including frozen breakfast sandwiches. They must have a lot of difficulty with smokers. It was pointed out that there is a $250 charge for smoking in the room and they make you initial that you agree to that. As part of the vast majority of people who have never smoked, I found the multiple reminders of this a bit annoying.

    « Okay for place to sleep »

    We have stayed at this hotel twice as we have been travelling. It's clean with a very basic breakfast. If you are wanting a place to "crash" for the night and then get up and get going on the road again, this is a good value for that. Both times got in late and left early.

    « Disappointed »

    We stayed at this best Western previously and it was nice - this time it looked run down and the pool was out of order - We used the laundry facilities - and they were loud and the soap dispenser was not working.

    « Avoid this hotel »

    Reserved this hotel on the BW website; site description and pictures seemed fine, pet-friendly and indoor pool. On arrival, no bell to summon the attendant, had to yell for someone who was uncaring at best. Air conditioning wasn't able to be adjusted and room was not cold enough to beat the heat and humidity outside; mattresses were uncomfortable. Breakfast was not hot and skimpy. The pool was under renovation, one of the main reasons we booked here and no sign was posted at the front counter at check-in. Avoid this place unless you're desperate.

    « cheaply managed. no working pool. »

    staff only provides negative info when asked -- we were nver told the pool doesnt work and others checking in later were also carefully NOT told that the pool was inoperable. yogurt is brought out on or two cups at a time, same for coffee lids. overall, the management is less than truthful and very cheap.

    « bestwestern »

    i havent stayed in bestwestern before,this is the first time i have stayed and i liked their service,the desk attendant offered us water and protein bar and explained abt their promotion abt getting a $50.oo gift card,enrolled in the program. Very nice hotel and very friendly staff

    « nice & calm place »

    The Hotel is right off Interstate 80.Nice friendly staff,good breakfast and nice big rooms in a very calm & quiet area,we enjoyed our stay here,will highly recommend and will be back for our next trip :)

    « Move on down I80 »

    This is nice looking hotel, and appears to be well kept in most public areas. However, the rooms are another matter. The bedding consists of a sheet, an extremely thin blanket, another sheet and then a thin counter pane. Not sure if there was fresh bedding, or just pulled up and tucked in. The last time I slept on a mattress as poor as the one in this room, was in a run down Super 8 motel in a small town where we had no choice during a violent winter storm. The mattress moaned and groaned every time my wife or I moved. Very very, very bad!!! Most of the rubber backing was pealed off the blackout curtains. When are these people going to learn that they must do some maintenance on a hotel, not just take in the money and do the superficial things? We try to stay at either Best Western or HIE when we travel. I must say that we are having more poor experiences than good with Best Western. I would NEVER stay here again.

    « Very comfortable and clean! »

    This hotel is very surprisingly clean and comfortable! Rooms are pretty spacious and furnitures are in pretty good condition. TV is in nice and good shape! Considering the fact that it is in middle of nowhere the hotel is in really good shape and very well maintained. Staff is really friendly. Really welcoming and greeted us with a complementary bottle of water. Overall really good experience!

    « Best Western Annawan IL »

    This hotel is undergoing a much needed renovation, the pool is out of service and some of the parking lot lights are only working part of the time. We stay at a lot of the Best Western hotels throughout the country and this one would rate down towards the lower end of satisfaction.

    « Great Hotel »

    Staff was very helpful and the hotel was well maintained. Received complimentary water and granola bars on check-in. The room was clean and very roomy. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit.

    « Best of our Trip »

    We four women rode our bicycles across Illinois and were happy to locate a great hotel in a small town along our route. This was the cleanest and best equiped one we stayed at. What a luxury for us. Others may be disappointed that the new pool is not yet complete (approx. January 2017) Our rooms were great, very clean and inviting. The lobby and breakfast room were terrific-- almost like a den. We played cards there into the night (9PM anyway). The desk clerk was very friendly and offered us fruit and juice when we arrived. He checked on our needs while we were playing cards. They allowed us to walk our bikes through the lobby to our rooms and to store our saddlebags the next day while we were out on the bike trail. There was plenty to choose from for breakfast. Everything looked clean and fresh. The rooms were a good deal at $95 plus tax. I wouldn't hestiate to recommend this hotel.... and the entire town.

    « Its the best »

    I liked this place very much,they had nice good bar and restaurant in town and the steak was really delicious,the best i had so far....The property is right after freewayI80 easily accessable,very neat and clean and the staff is very friendly,they gave us freebies too :)Will stay and highly recommend

    « Great updated place »

    This motel has been totally remodeled. Very nice rooms, Very helpful staff. Nice hot breakfast. Very nice conference room for meetings. Updated indoor pool. We stay here every time we are in the area.

    « Out of Service »

    Okay so we rented a suite here for a weekend with kids we don't see often. Swimming was one of the main highlights to the weekend plans. Well we get told the pool is out of service. Clerk said it should be fixed by the next day. Well it wasn't. So swimming plans which let me add again was the highlight of the trip again was out of the question. Which made it hard to find something more plesant to do in town considering there was nothing to do. Had to drive at least 30 mins to find something to do. The breakfast was crappy. First morning Apple juice was out at 7am? Then the next day both Apple Juice and Orange Juice was out at 7am? I'm assuming they just simply was not refilled. On top of that the waffle mix was not the best. The bread was hard and stale as was the cerial. The muffins were the size of my palm. The only decent thing at the breakfast was the danish's. The warm up sandwhich's were not good either. Then went to wash some clothes in the washer and dryer upstairs and it took my quarters and sounded completely empty. Yes the clerk did give me my quarters back but did not have the urge to refill the machine. The clerk did not speak much english I could understand either. I do need to add though. The room was clean and tidy. Loved the room and thats about it!!

    « Not very good »

    When the first thing you experience when you enter a room is ripped curtains, you are not very happy. Then the shower mat was ripped and when I went to bed I found the mattress pad was a bit short for the mattress. I'm used to the Best Western in South Beloit where I've never had a bad experience.

    « AnnawanInn »

    Always friendly service . They acknowledge returning guests as soon as rbe slightly overpriced for the market, but not to service. Maybe a little overpriced for the market, but not excessively so

    « Charged for stay despite cancelling 2 weeks prior »

    I called two weeks prior to a planned stay at this hotel and cancelled my reservation. I found a charge on my credit card after the planned trip. I called to question the manager and he said unless they sent me a cancellation email I was going to be charged for their mistake. Will not use this place in the future - what a rip off!

    « Clean room at a reasonable price »

    We checked in very late at night and the gentleman at the desk was very nice and gave us a great room. We enjoyed waking up to sweeping view of the surrounding cornfields. The room was clean and the common areas looked inviting. Breakfast was a bit sparce but our 9 yr olds were happy with the waffles and cereal.

    « VERY clean and comfortable... highly recommended »

    Stayed hear overnight on my way to Sturgis SD. Very clean, very friendly and accommodating staff... Honestly, probably one of the most comfortable beds I ever slept in. Thank you very much and I highly recommend this place.

    « Wonderful stop »

    We had been driving 14 hours and looking for a good reviewed hotel. Loved this hotel, newer, clean, quiet, great breakfast with nice couches etc. to lounge. and very nice room. Indoor pool, patio with a grill. Will definitely stay again if in this area.

    « Very pleasant stay »

    This is a great hotel and is especially nice given that there aren't too many quality hotels to stay in this area. We stayed here for a total of 3 nights. I've stayed here in the past and was pleased with that visit too. The only negative I can think of is that the pool was a little too cool for my comfort and there is no hot tub. Otherwise, an excellent hotel that my family and I enjoyed.
