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.

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.

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.

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...

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...
