    « very disappointed »

    The hotel and room seemed average but when I found the bathroom sink would not drain I reported it to the front desk attendant. Although he said someone would fix the problem no one showed up my entire stay. I will definitely not stay here again.

    « Will not stay again and will not recommend to anyone!! »

    Check-in was quick and the desk clerk was friendly. Lobby appeared pretty nice. That is where it all ended. The room at first glance was a little rough but didn't seem too bad. Until you actually walked in and took a closer look. There were patches in several places on the walls where repairs had tried to be made, but then it was never repainted. Big stains on the carpet. Black ants all over the room. We had another family from our group down the hall and they had ants in their room also. Black mold on the bathroom wall and shower head. The shower head was just disgusting. The shower curtain was dirty too. The beds were horribly uncomfortable, however I understand that is based on personal preference. We were only provided with 3 bath towels, even though the room is made for 4 people and we had 4 people in our party. When we called to ask for an additional towel, we were told that they had a full house the night before and they had towels in the laundry so they may not have any available. First of all, why would you only provide 3 towels for a room that sleeps 4? Second, are you telling me you don't keep ANY extra towels on hand?? We did end up getting the extra towel, but it should have never been an issue to start with! We tried to take the kids down to the pool for awhile but ended up finding out that area was full of ants also! The shoes, towels and clothes we had sitting on the seats had ants crawling all over them. When it came time to check out, the clerk at the desk was not friendly at all. We were never even asked how our stay was. So I started to explain our complaints and I was never even offered an apology, let alone any kind of compensation. All I was told is that they are aware of the ant problem and not sure if it's because of the location of the hotel or if it's a seasonal issue. So I then said that if it's an ongoing issue they need to have an exterminator come out on a regular basis!! If you can't get a handle on an ant problem, it makes me wonder what other bugs you may have issues with!? All of this is not only a cleanliness issue, but also a health issue. Bugs AND mold!!! Again, I was never even offered as much as an apology. I most definitely will not return and will never recommend it to anyone.

    « Horrible!!!!` »

    Stayed there for 5 nights the first 2 nights were fine. It all went down hill after that. Woke up on our 3rd day with no hot water. Come to find out there was a problem with the water heater and then they had to shut the water off (which means no toilets) I ended up taking a sponge bath with water heated up from the coffee pot. Our air conditioner in our room went out as well. The last 2 nights we stayed there was a large group of adults in the lobby drinking all hours of the night and their kids were able to run around the halls screaming and yelling all in front of the night clerk without them doing anything to quiet them down (Our room was right off the lobby). When we asked for compensation for lack of hot water & the lack of sleep the last 2 evenings we were told they can't do anything for us.

    « Avoid this hotel »

    We had four rooms, one room the TV did not work, the other room had a really bad ant problem....really bad internet. The last night and morning of our 5 night stay there was NO hot water. We had to stay one more night and went to Fairfield Inn next door......GO THER INSTEAD!,,

    « NOISY and poor housekeeping »

    Stayed here three nights for a convention at the Civic Center. Check-in was ok and rooms are large with nice amenities. However, evenings were very noisy with children running the hallways and yelling until after midnight and other guests talking loudly in the hallway as well. Got very poor and disrupted sleep 2 of the 3 nights because of all the noise. Additionally, housekeeping was sloppy. Other than making the bed and emptying garbage cans, little was done after the first night. Bathroom amenities were not replaced and only a few towels were replaced. The carpeting was never vacuumed either. Breakfast was ok. The waffle makers were not turned on which created a huge mess for another guest one morning who assumed that a half hour into the breakfast time that it had been turned on and was functioning. I would not stay here again.

    « On our way to Florida »

    We booked this motel a week or so ahead of time with the intent of checking out a local casino. We arrived early, around noon, and had doubts that we would be able to check in, but Amber, the front desk women, said no problem, our room wasn't ready, but she switched us to a room that was, and we were able to check in! Very nice king size bed room, with fridge and microwave. Our only issue with the room was the Heat/AC unit. We like to keep our room cool at night, and we're unable to set temp below 65, so we had to open a window, which exposed us to the nearby traffic noise. Not a big deal. We made use of their complimentary shuttle service, and the van and driver were made available and ready immediately, of course Amber set that up for us as well! We were surprised at soup being available early evening in the lobby! A chicken dumpling or vegetable barley, and crackers! We tried both, and were fantastic! Oh, I forgot to mention the nice soft chocolate chip cookies that were available too! The morning breakfast was excellent as well! We enjoyed our stay, and a big shout out to Amber for her kind treatment of us!

    « Superb »

    We ended up needing to spend the night unexpectedly due to the weather. We didn't show up until close to midnight but the night manager, Amber I believe, was super nice and attentive and surprisingly bubbly considering the hour. Our suite had the best shower we've ever had in a hotel, amazing water pressure! The breakfast was great, we even commented that there was bacon, which you rarely see at a continental breakfast. This hotel will definitely be our first pick whenever we're back in the area!

    « Bed bugs »

    I stayed here one night in room 425 and now have bed bug bites all over my legs. I don't recommend staying here. The bed was ok, the pillows were extremely hard and the bathroom tile was cracked......

    « I never recomend beyond the usual motel review but »

    This is one of the nicest BW's I've stayed at. We like BW's nonetheless some are much better than others. This is one of the really good ones. Of course, the comfort of the bed in any motel comes first, and of course the bed was very comfortable. The second item on the list for me is the shower, and this one was better than the one I have at home?whoa?by about three notches; a strong steady cleansing rush of water?refreshing! However, it's the little things that set a hotel apart, and in little things this hotel shines; a thoughtful staff, a clean and very clean establishment, and a decent cup of coffee (not the cheap and tasteless stuff) in your room. Over all I would give this hotel?and I use the word ?hotel? rather than motel deliberately?FIVE STARS!

    « BW PEORIA »

    Place was awesome, clean rooms, pool, breakfast was good, coffee ready all the time, helpful staff, bed was great, had no problems with anything during my stay, i would stay at this hotel again was for work

    « Nice Oasis »

    It was a very quiet location, although all shopping and/or restaurants were nearby. The rooms were quiet and the water was hot. Breakfast was surprisingly nice! We had three rooms for family members to attend a funeral. We were close to each other. It was quiet enough for the baby to sleep - something that doesn't always happen.

    « Restful stay »

    I am a traveling nurse working night shift. I was able to sleep with minimal disturbance during the day. They allowed for a late check out as well. The room was large and clean. The bed was comfortable. The staff at the front desk were very welcoming.

    « Disgusting hotel!! »

    When we walked into the room it smelled horribly of smoke. The windows were open so someone obviously knew it smelled. Our bathroom had mold all over the walls & looked like it hadn't been cleaned. We were moved to a second room which seemed to be better until we went to get in the beds. BOTH beds had long & short black hairs all over the sheets. So disgusting!! The main reason we chose this hotel was bc of the indoor pool. But the heater wasn't working & the pool was ice cold. My kids were very disappointed! This should have been posted on the website or made known to us prior to booking. I will never stay here again & wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Decent Hotel »

    This was a nice enough hotel. Kind of out of the way but still close to shopping and downtown. The front desk person was very nice. He seemed to really enjoy his job. I will be visiting Peoria at least once a month and might stay here if there was a good deal on the price.

    « Best value for the area »

    Over all the hotel was pleasant. Hallway carpets need cleaning or replacement. We had no problem checking in early, which was very much appreciated. The fitness center did not have water both days which wasn't a problem as long as the pool was open.

    « Good location for getting around »

    The staff was outstanding and friendly. The location was good for convenience. The rooms were just average and did show some wear and tear. Very small closet. Dings and scratches. TV was nice. Beds comfortable. Breakfast was well done.

    « Comfortable and clean »

    If you are looking for a very clean and comfortable hotel t stay at with a great friendly staff this is the place for you.. The rooms are nicely updated, very clean and the beds are nice and comfortable. I highly recommend this hotel, they also provide a great all u can eat breakfast with your stay

    « Family trip »

    We were a family of 6 staying at the Best Western in Peoria. We went for business and to visit with family. Perfect spot, served breakfast, nice pool and very friendly staff. Needed to use their washer and dryer, 75 cents each, quick and no lines or waiting. There are business around to shop at and easy access on to the freeway. It is across from downtown but not far. We were on the 4th floor, heard no sounds from the freeway at all.

    « Exceptional property! »

    Super place that was very clean with a delicious breakfast of good quality food. All personnel were very friendly and helpful with a list of restaurants nearby. It was also convenient to the interstate.

    « Excellent »

    This is an excellent place to stay! From check-in to check out. The front desk staff is awesome. The breakfast is amazing! Something different everyday and stocked very well never ran out of stuff. Room and bed nice shower pressure amazing!! We will be returning here when in town!

    « Reciently remodeled »

    This property was a holiday inn express was reciently remodeled and is clean and up to date. Its a good value. This service does not want a rating because its required to be too many words. no one reads long reviews. This service does not want a rating because its required to be too many words. no one reads long reviews

    « Friendly Staff »

    I travel quite often for work & either stay with IHG or Best Western. If i had to pick a favorite, then Best Western wins hands down. The staff is super friendly and alwsys in a good mood. I can't say the same for IHG properties.

    « Great Shower »

    This BW+ stands out because it had such a great shower. I really like a strong shower, not the type that trickles down like a gentle spring rain. The room itself was quite nice. As with most motels today, the staff was excellent. The only problem, as we saw it, was there was too much light, for us a common problem in most motels and hotels.

    « Our Stay »

    We stayed 2 nights...Friday night was amazing ...Saturday night in a different room...The type of room was awesome. The room Saturday night the carpet felt wet and the room smelled of mold. The hotel itself was very good. The staff on the morning shift both nights at the front desk was terrible. He acted like we were bothering him to check out. The computer wasn't working so we were promised an email receipt which we still have not received. I still would recommend this hotel. Overall it was awesome. We just happened to get a bad room the second night we stayed there.

    « comfortable stay with our two dogs »

    We were in the Peoria area this past weekend and needed to stay at a pet-friendly hotel for Saturday night. After researching, we found out that Best Westerns are pet-friendly and allow more than one dog in a room. We have our 12yo black Labrador retriever and our rescue puppy. Both of our dogs are well-behaved, house trained and do not bark (lucky us) so it makes staying in a hotel a breeze. The Best Western Plus was THE. BEST. HOTEL. STAY. for our Saturday night in Peoria. Friendly greeting, comfortable amenities for us (clean room) and our dogs (grassy area for bathroom needs). The rooms have plenty of space and were extremely clean and comfortable. The complimentary breakfast and coffee service in the lobby was top-notch - they even offer fresh-made waffles and hazelnut creamer for the coffee! Great location to shopping in East Peoria and downtown Peoria. We will stay here next time we are in the area and our pups will be coming too!

    « Great stay! »

    Rooms were clean, staff was friendly and breakfast was great! The beds were very comfortable and pillows felt brand new. Would definitely stay here again the next time I am in there area. Staff went above and beyond for anything I requested.

    « Nice hotel »

    Very friendly staff easy to find rooms very clean very nice hotel would definitely stay here or recommend great breakfast pool is nice all amenities great Staff treat you like a person always looking for some way to help great hotel great staff

    « Bad experince. »

    Hotel was dirty and noisy. The room, hall and stairwell smelled like mold. We had ants in our room and we had bogus charges after check out. This facility is even below Best Western quality. The manager was not helpful in resolving the bogus charges. The hotel overall is not kept up well.

    « Great Stay in Peoria »

    The hotel was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was one of the best I have had at a hotel. Was very pleased to see there was a laundry location in the hotel. Location was less than a mile from shopping and dining.

    « Terrible hotel »

    Absolute horrible experience. Would never go back to this hotel. Room was filled with ants. Window leaked with water pouring in from storm outside. Reported to staff nothing was ever done about it!! Room was not stocked had to change my own garbage get my own toilet paper look for towels. Breakfast was awful too. Nothing really offered. Hotel smelled

    « Needs better management »

    Had to wait over 10 minutes for someone to show up at the front desk. Just handed key and told to sign waiver with no explanation of pool or breakfast. Pool area had no clean towels but dirty ones all over the place. Outside doors to inside pool left open. Leaves and feathers in indoor pool and could not see the bottom of the pool in the shallow end (3 feet deep).

    « good night »

    had comfort ,as well peace of mind,break fast was beyond expectation,looking to return soon,would likely recommend to relatives and friends,located near the highway is a plus,rooms were maintain daily staff was curteous

    « 4th of July 2017 Best Western Stay Excellent! »

    I called in my reservation because I did not see what I needed on the website. I was able to reserve a room/suite with two double beds and a fold out couch in the other room. It was wonderful! I really appreciate the Military/Veteran discount. Every staff member helpful. Place was clean and breakfast had a variety of items. There was even a grab and go sack! I will stay at the Best Western in East Peoria, Illinois again when I visit my family.

    « Wonderful staff & service »

    The hotel is easy to get to, is clean and well kept, and the staff are very welcoming and gracious. Had an enjoyable stay. I do not have anything else to add but this survey is requiring me to use 200 characters. :-)

    « Clean and Efficient »

    We needed a hotel for just one night, and this place was perfect. Clean, Friendly, and basic. It was close to shopping/restaurants and easy access to interstate. Hotel staff was friendly and professional. Easy to check in and check out.

    « WOW!! »

    This has been one of the best hotels I have stayed in, in a long time!! We had a break down on our big rig and Ty allowed us to check in early. Ty was an exceptional receptionist and was extremely helpful. We was unable to drive anywhere and he has the shuttle bus take us to get some food while also making sure we had return transportation. The breakfast was excellent and the rooms were very nice the customer service we received from Ty was beyond excellent!!!

    « Very Clean »

    I stay here every time I go Peoria. The hotel is fabulous. The staff were very nice. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is one of the nicest places to stay around Peoria. Breakfast is good even though we didn't eat this time.

    « Great Service, wonderful staff »

    The staff were very kind although I had a few small mix ups. There was a lack of communication between the changing of shift that allowed the accident of issuing a copy of my key card to another guest. Also I was told that I could have a late check out and went out and came back to the maid being in the room cleaning. Once again a communication problem. The thing that made me not get upset was the overall desire of staff to apologize. I am still work through the other issue that include corporate. The place was clean and the presentation was extremely nice.

    « Satisfied »

    The entire Staff was very pleasant and friendly. Facility was clean and the room was very nice. The location is good. Easy access to downtown, plus the area where the Hotel is located is all new shops and eateries.

    « Maybe the best ever »

    By far the best customer service I have experienced in a long, long time. And, as a best western diamond select member, I do see it all. It was great on every front. I literally can not think of a single negative element to my stay. Special cudos to the gentleman at the desk who held my room and checked me in.

    « Lots of sink counter space »

    As soon as you enter your room, you are met with a sink counter space that is quite roomy for personal care items. We like that! The toilet and shower/tub are in a separate room. The vent fan was very noisy in our room. Probably just an exception. The room was large with king bed, business desk and loveseat/pull out bed. We thought the breakfast item menu was limited for a Best Western Plus. The bed was very comfortable.

    « Excellent stay »

    I loved my stay everyone was very helpful and professional. Would recommend the stay to anyone in the area. It's easy access to the highway and is in the center of everything including shops and downtown

    « Pleasant Place to Stay »

    Room, workers, hotel and breakfast were all very nice and will return again. We got the suite for added privacy for husband who is an early riser. We booked hotel online (not through Best Western) but Best Western was able to add in a date. Very pleasant to work with on phone and in person.

    « Great as always »

    Great palce. Near shopping and dining areas. Not far from the river. Staff was nice as always. Fit room is clean as always. Beds were great, fridge, microwave, nice tv size. Big bathroom area. Great all around.

    « Excellent »

    Best hotel stay in a while! Room was outstanding. Staff was great and very helpful. Will be staying here for many more stays. Close to all all shops and restaurants. Shuttle service was fast and efficient.

    « Recommend »

    Clean, quite, priced right. Accepted my discount. Room decide was nice, breakfast OK for cost. Desk staff okay but maintenance guy working hard and very attentive. Shower hot and great water pressure. Room 301 very quiet and beds reasonably comfortable. Just 2 miles or so from Civic Center and Chiefs ball field. Would definitely stay again.

    « Great location and experience. »

    The location was easy to find and in a great location. There were lots of things to see and do in the area. . The staff was very professional and friendly. My room was perfect. I will stay here again.

    « Great place to stay »

    Great hotel and great value I wo I ld recommend best Western. Clean and inviting. The staff is very professional nice and respectful. Rooms were nice and clean. Fitness center has all the equipment needed to get a good work out

    « Was ok. »

    I stayed for a week for business 2 weeks in a row. First room had a small bathroom counter. Sink drained slow. Nice size fridge and microwave. This time I have a big sink area, small microwave and tiny fridge that is half way working. Nice size tv limited channels. Nice quiet little work out room. I would say family safe and so far no bed bug signs.

    « Outstanding Hotel »

    This hotel used to be a Holiday Inn Express - our room was spacious, clean and neat. We arrived pretty late, in fact we were the last arriving reservation, the staff took very good care of us, and provided us with a little arrival bag which contained one bottle of water - only comment - and not a complaint... it should have been 2 bottles. I would recommend this hotel and would stay there the next time I am in the Peoria Area.

    Tabatha at the front desk was GREAT! She smiled non stop literally till 10 at night. It was refreshing. The food was great the rooms were clean. The staff here very was friendly i would recommend hotel.

    « Bad experience »

    What ever happened with the customer is right. I canceled one night out of two I gave enough notice other hotels are OK with the same day but not best western all I'm asking is that I get a refund of one night which equals $128

    « Very Comfortable »

    This was a very roomy suite with a comfortable bed and the pressure in the shower was fabulous. I don't think I've ever had a shower with that much pressure. I didn't want to get out from under it. There was a separate sink/counter area off the bathroom that was also very roomy so I was able to spread out all our toiletries. We were very happy with the staff, the hotel, and our stay.

    « Stay Here It's Great »

    The hotel is very nice looking. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The room was large and well outfitted. The last time I stayed in a room this big was when I stayed at a suite at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas.

    « Nice weekend »

    We arrived late and did not care for the night desk clerk John. But the rest of our stay was nice. Good breakfast, comfortable room and the kids loved the covered pool. I would not hesitate to return.

    « Great place »

    Very clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Offered rule so I could watch movies for free. It is close to shopping and restaurants. Offer a shuttle if we needed it. I left early for work from there @ 5:15 they made sure to have some things out for the early travelers to grab on the way out. Love this place

    « Business »

    Very good customer service. The staff are extremly helpful, and provided tips for activities to take in during my stay. Property is close to many nice restaurants and shopping. Near downtown. Easy access.

    « Excellent showers »

    When you are on the road you miss your bed, and your shower!! These rooms are very spacious, nice and clean and the showers were amazing! Love the big TV and the bathroom sink area separate from the shower!! The breakfast was pretty standard and not too bad! The staff was great including Lanette for being so helpful when we arrived late and are reservations hadn't been confirmed!! Would definitely recommend this hotel and would stay here again!! Close to everything you need including the river front! And the free shuttle is awesome!!!

    « Nice rooms, exterior needs updating »

    Rooms have been updated. Convenient location to Bradley University. BW upper levels do not get any perks at this hotel. WIFI works very good. Pool area and the general exterior needs maintenance and updating.

    « Peoria Work Trip »

    Best Westerns are always convenient when travelling for work. Breakfast is quick and the rooms comfortable. Pool was warm, but no hot tub. Centrally located in East Peoria with easy access to Peoria, the airport and Caterpillar.

    « Nice stay »

    Hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Pool was nice. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. We booked this hotel thru Expedia without knowing the area. It worked out real well. My wife joked that everything we decided to do while in Peoria, was ten mins from our hotel. But with that said this Best western was a great place. They leave drinks out all day and night in the lobby as well as cookies!?? Every room has a refrigerator as well. That was real nice!

    « Great USSSA tournmant »

    we chose this Hotel by mistakenly locating the wrong ball park for our tournament. However, we were not disappointed as it was still only a 15min trip to the "right" ball park. The staff went above and beyond to be helpful. We were given late check out on Sat without hesitation in consideration of our final day of play. You won't be disappointed by selecting this facility!

    « Stayed for Ball Tournament »

    Very average! The room is set up very strange. No sink in the bathroom, which guarantees the spread of bacteria on the door knob, light switch, etc. Counter tops were cracked and filled in with caulk. Toilet ran constantly. Air conditioning was less than satisfactory. If you need to shower and sleep, it will do. If you are looking to relax, enjoy your space and expect quality this probably isn't the place to stay.

    « Good stay »

    Real nice rooms and pool area. Staff was very friendly. Shuttle service is very nice to have and good breakfast. Would recommend it. Nice place to stay. Everything was very clean and places in the area easy to get to.

    « Stayed for Ball Tournament »

    Stayed with large group for ball tournament. Clean & courteous. Beds where plush. Nice indoor/outdoor pool area. Even had to go bags for early risers to take if you left before breakfast was serving. Hot breakfast ok. Auto Pancake maker was really good. the there microwaved instant. Bacon, Fried Potatoes, yogurt, bagels, toast, boiled eggs...the usual hotel foods. Conv. to shopping & several places to eat.

    « Terrible Staff Service »

    This hotel, while very exterior and interior has some staffing issues. As a Platinum Rewards member, I used two coupons to offset the cost my stay. The two ladies checking us in were new and had no idea how to input the coupons. We checked in and had to leave to visit a cancer stricken friend. On the way out I asked that the heater be fixed as it was noisy. We returned, mentally and physically exhausted 6 1/2 hrs later (10 p.m.) the heater was not fixed and they wanted to move us. We were too exhausted. The next morning, we noticed mold in the tub. Shay, the front desk attendant tried to blame us for the mold saying if we had only moved rooms we would never have seen it. In addition, when filling a cup of coffee ALL pots had floating grounds. Shay, again, failed to correct this concern.

    « Awesome hotel! »

    I stayed here 2 weeks ago. This was my first time to Peoria Il & this hotel was so nice. The staff here from front desk, to breakfast crew, to housekeeping were amazing. They were all so nice & always had a smile. One thing that was great was the complimentary shuttle that could take you where ever you needed to go. I had a late flight & they even let me have a late check out. The room was over the top awesome. The beds were pillowtop & slept like a dream. (Best sleep at any hotel I have ever been too.) They provided nice shampoo, conditioner, lotion, & soap. The breakfast was great, Cheddar scrambled eggs, sausage or bacon, 3 different types of juices, pastries, bagels, etc. There was a machine that made pancakes & beside it was a condiment bar to top your pancakes: cinnamon/sugar, chocolate chips, strawberries, powdered sugar, etc. They have a beautiful pool & a nice fitness room. Their Free Wifi had a strong signal & was excellent. I will definitely stay again if I'm ever in the area.

    « Excellent hotel »

    I had an excellent stay at this Best Western. The facility is lovely, well decorated and clean. The beds are comfortable with pillow-top - I slept well. The breakfast was good, probably one of the best scrambled eggs that I have had at a limited breakfast. The hotel has an indoor poor which looked inviting, but I did not have the time to use it. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. I highly recommend.

    « Nice clean quiet »

    Spent the night before a medical procedure great nites sleep front desk was more than helpful will definetly stay again easy access to medical centers in Peoria and lots of resteraunt so close by I highly recommend this location if you're staying in the area

    « another great stay »

    I always enjoy going to Peoria Illinois. The staff here is awesome.They are super friendly and remember my name and are warm and caring people who seem to like their jobs. Even the Housekeeping staff are friendly and extend warm greeting in the morning.

    « Nice place to stay »

    I would recommend this hotel to the overnight traveler or to the budget friendly travelers. Nothing extravagant for sure. Rooms are decent. Not fancy. It met my needs for an overnight stay close to business requirements.

    « Value was good but needs improvement »

    Great value and nice area but Front guest check in was not very friendly at all. Also, they have multiple signs telling you how to add Netflix to your TV (especially nice when traveling with a child) but when inquired, "the few" they had were all gone. We were traveling in the middle of the week (would suggest taking down the sign when "the few" are gone then or getting more). Also room was missing an iron and the bathroom could definitely been cleaner. Even value hotels can be friendly and clean, this one just needs some tweaking in those areas.

    Great Facilities, great staff, clean and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly. I booked this hotel at the last minute as plans changed the day prior and wasn't disappointed in my choice. I was pleasantly surprised by the Suite that I had booked and enjoyed the additional room and conveniences. Workout facilities were clean and in good repair. Great Stay!

    « Overnight Stay for Business »

    Excellent overall value for business trips. Rooms were clean and smelled clean! Beds were very comfortable. Room decor was contemporary and refreshing. Business center was adequately equipped to meet needs of busy professionals.

    « Very nice stay at Best Western PLUS, Peoria, East Peoria, Illinois »

    The Best Western PLUS in East Peoria Illinois is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. The staff is very nice and very professional. I would recommend this hotel for anyone traveling in the Peoria area.

    it was really a good motel everyone was helpful with any needs we had, the pool was wonderful, would use again. it was close to alot of shops and eating places,if you are in the peoria area please check it out

    « Less than stellar »

    We reserved our room with a block of rooms for a team tournament. When we went to check in we were told the confirmation number we were given wasn't one of theirs. I had called twice to confirm this reservation and asked for an email confirmation to be sent both times and it never was. Next we were told that our reservation was for the previous night and they already had us as checked in. The block of rooms was only for the current night so this made no sense. The room was quite pricey for what it was. Even though it's a newer hotel our room had an unpleasant smell and was only worth about half what we paid. Food and utensils at breakfast ran out quickly and were not restocked in the time we were there. When the bill came under our door in the morning we had also been charged for 2 nights instead of one. Thankfully the man at the front desk was able to adjust that after another lengthy wait. We have stayed at some nice best western plus hotels in the past but this was not one of them.

    « Nothing Too Exciting Here »

    Hotel was small but nice enough. Rooms were clean and decent sized with ok beds, a mini fridge and microwave. Breakfast was just ok too - no waffle maker and the pancake maker was broken, but everything else was fine.

    « Another great stay »

    Always stay at this hotel in the greater Peoria area. John, the GM, and his staff are always welcoming and make the stay an easy decision to make. It's location is central to my needs in the Peoria area and is easy to get in and out of. The lobby is very nice and during the winter months, the roaring fireplace is a welcome sight.

    This is one of the finest hotel property in Central Illinois Annually I come to Peoria for the Illinois State high school basketball tournament and have stayed at this property for nearly ten years, Its the only hotel I would consider stay at when I'm in Peoria. The reason for my choice..... is the friendly staff that treats me like...... Family.

    A shining Star in the Hotel business!! The hotel staff made every effort to make sure the guest felt like home and the room was very clean and well maintained. There is very much a good cooperative system here between management and employees as both made sure the guest was NO. 1 and comofrtable in every way. Kudo's to this hotel and I will return. Many Thanks!!!

    « nice hotel »

    breakfast much better than avg offerings. Multiple choices, fresh fruits and variety of juices/milk, coffee. Comfy beds, good desk space. Little difficult to find first time. Many kids due to game finals? but I've had young kids so no problem. Hotel much quieter when weekend was over and they left. Imagine that. Overall--good experience. Will book again

    « I found a roach »

    I found a roach in room 412 and there was nothing done about it and the service was very unhelpful nothing was done about it. Also I felt like I was treated like I was nothing to them. It was very upsetting

    « What a Value »

    This hotel was above and beyond what I expected. Very clean rooms and very friendly staff. Wonderful place to stay for the short time we were there. Very good breakfast, in and out easy to the main highway. One and half mile from the Riverboat. We will definently come back.

    « Nice Hotel »

    This hotel is very nice. The staff was very friendly. We were able to check in an hour early and when we got to our room the cleaning person asked if we needed anything else. The room was clean and was very big. I loved the counter space right when you walked into the door. It was big enough for 2 people to get ready at the same time and have enough room. The breakfast was good. It was your typical hotel breakfast. The one unique thing was they had a make your own pancake machine instead of the make your own waffle machine. My only 2 complaints were the shower did not get very hot and the hotel shuttle does not work if you are going to see a concert. We stayed here because we were going to a concert and the civic center and when we asked about the shuttle the front desk lady said they could get us there but they had to pick up flight crew from the airport and they were not sure they would be able to pick us up from the civic center. They also said the shuttle stopped running at 11pm and if the concert got over later than that then we would have to take a cab. We then asked how much parking was at the civic center and the lady said it could be anywhere from 10-20 dollars. We thought that parking was very affordable since parking in Chicago is 35 dollars so we decided to drive and parking only cost 5 dollars. So overall having to drive was not a big deal.

    « Extremely satisfied »

    Great value, comfortable room, excellent location, friendly and professional staff, quality breakfast, clean modern facility; pool and fitness room is compact but very accommodating. We have stayed before and will definitely stay again when in Peoria.

    « Great, kid friendly hotel near everything. »

    We have stayed in this hotel several times and it is definitely a great, kid friendly hotel. The rooms have always been very clean as well as the entry area and breakfast room. The staff is always very pleasant. This hotel is located near EVERYTHING (IHOP, Target, Costco, Ulta, Aldi, restaurants galor) If you are a hockey fan, the Peoria Rivermen where playing and the Louisiana Icegators stayed at this hotel which was fun for the kids. Overall, friendly and clean.

    « Another Great Stay! »

    Best Western Plus in East Peoria is my go to hotel when in town! The general manager and his team are all very pleasant and helpful while I am in town. There was a roaring fire in the fireplace when you walk into the lobby and with it 10 degrees outside and dropping with a negative wind chill, the heat was very welcomed.

    « Great hotel!! »

    Very friendly, helpful staff, wonderful kitchenette, clean rooms, comfortable beds, great breakfast, kid friendly, and wonderful pool. Me and my kids had a great time at this hotel and would definitely stay again!

    Very good hotel for the value paid. Friendly staff and very clean property. Quiet location, but close enough to restaurants, shopping, and attractions. Breakfast was hot with a good variety for selection.

    « Overall Good Stay »

    These rooms are the traditional hotel room layout. They are nicely appointed & very clean. Easy access to I-74, tho I always find it a little confusing to get to restaurants in the immediate area. The Continental Brfst was average. Staff was friendly.

    « Would stay again for sure! »

    Stayed here,close to the OSF Hospital.Staff was very accommodating.The breakfast was great in the morning. ALWAYS, someone restocking it also (nice). The rooms were nice and the beds were great. The only reason I didn't give a total 5 is there was no hot tub.

    « Another excellent stay »

    This is my go to hotel for the Peoria area when I go there for business. Close to the work I need to do and great staff, it's a no-brainer for me to choose them. There's always a friendly smile at the front desk and their GM is very engaged in your quality experience. The shuttle service is nice to have at my disposal should I need them. And there's some good restaurants within a few minutes' drive. I never even consider using another hotel and have been recommending this one to my peers that travel to Peoria.

    « Business Trip »

    Staff was exceptional. Decor is high end. Rooms are updated and comfortable. Would stay again, for sure. Make sure you register for your value points before your next stay. Pool is very clean and convenient.

    « Friendly Staff and Great Value »

    The decor is nice, rooms were clean, staff was very nice. The breakfast was ok but I typically like to eat healthier. They presented it very nicely though. The lobby fireplace was cozy and the children enjoyed sitting in the nice chairs there. It was nice they extended a military discount to me due to being in town to handle a veteran's funeral. It was a sad time and they made is nicer for us at this hotel.

    « Hotel Stay »

    This hotel is remarkably clean and comfortable. It's in an obscure location, right in the heart of things, but the entrance way is a little goofy. Not difficult to navigate, though and out of harms way for traffic.

    « Best Western Plus, East Peoria IL »

    One of the best hotels I have stayed in. Clean, Quiet, excellent breakfast and wonderful staff. Truly a great hotel. I have worked and stayed in New York and Los Angeles for 6 months at a time and East Peoria is a little slice of heaven. Thank you to John and his staff. Keep up the great customer service..

    « Great Hotel »

    The desk staff are very pleasant and want to make sure you enjoy your stay. The rooms are very nice! The breakfast was enjoyable. The hotel was very clean. The only down fall was that housekeeping seemed to be in a rush to clean the rooms before people had checked out. I will consider returning!

    « Wonderful Stay! »

    Great breakfast, very clean, comfortable bed, and friendly staff!! The lobby was nice. The breakfast area was very clean and there was plenty of tables. My only complaint was that the snack area was kind of lacking but there are plenty of stores and fast food places around that are easy to get to.

    « Best bet in central Illinois »

    Couldn't ask for more thoughful hotel staff who went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. This is my go-to hotel now for trips back home--won't stay anywhere else. Location (Levee District) is perfect for business in Peoria, E Peoria or Pekin.

    « Friendliest Place in Town »

    The hotel was a good find. Our baseball team was in town for State playoffs and stayed here. The hotel was clean with an extremely friendly staff. My only complaint was that the breakfast was a bit disappointing.

    « Most comfortable bed ever! »

    I recently stayed one night at this hotel because I was in town for a business conference. The front desk staff was very nice, very accommodating. She went above and beyond to meet my room request and I'm extremely picky. The room was very clean, quiet and the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. In fact, I'm hoping to buy the exact model for my home! The room was also very spacious, wifi very speedy and water pressure in the shower was awesome. I didn't have time to enjoy the included breakfast but it smelled delicious upon my check out. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

    « Great customer service »

    I travel frequently for work and was a little hesitant when I booked my reservation, but the staff won me over. Great customer service, decent breakfast and nice rooms. I'll be sure to keep Best Western in mind next time I book.

    « Bereaved disappointed »

    I drove 11 hours from north Carolina to attend the funeral of my best friend's father. I booked for 2 nights but learned the day I checked in that I didn't need to stay the 2nd night. I talked to the front desk clerk that day who told me I had to call the AAA customer service since I booked thru that website. I talked to both the hotel and AAA customer service several times and was finally told the hotel would not refund the 2nd night. I left the hotel anyway since I had the 11 hour drive back home. I am very disappointed and now very broke.

    « Clean, friendly staff, quiet »

    Don't let the location fool you, being next to the interstate. It was completely quiet. You have to enter through an industrial area, which could be off-putting to some, but it is well worth the stay. our room was very clean. All the staff was very friendly. We will stay here again for sure.
