Not a bad hotel , but I don't care to see the help being dressed down. That should be done in a private setting. The owners & their family's should not use the guest breakfast seating during breakfast/checkout time, so there is ample seating for the guests.

Right off I-39, easy also to take local roads (351) into LaSalle or (71) to Starved Rock. Clean and comfortable. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Nice pool and hot tub. Great squishy pillows. Coffee and tea available 24/7. Plenty of parking. Quiet even though it's near the interstate. Full breakfast had lots of choices, even hard boiled eggs...

hot tub did not work, had not worked for over a week. No forks available during breakfast. Juice machine at breakfast out of order, too much money for this hotel in this area with items not working or not available

The Best Western in Oglesby, IL has a full breakfast menu, including fresh fruit such as melon and strawberries. There is a grab-and-go menu for those in a hurry. We enjoyed dinner at the family restaurant next door. Cost of the hotel is good.

I have no big complaints about this hotel: it was clean and very roomy, the staff was ok and the free breakfast was run-of-the-mill. It just wasn't anything special, either. I wanted to use the pool but didn't end up having the time to do so, unfortunately. There were a lot of people using the pool at all hours of...

Thuis is a great hotel to stay at when traveling from Mpls Mn to Florida if traveling with pets. It is about 7 hours from the city and as a small town offers plenty of options for Dinner. We like MJ's for a drink and great food.

I found this hotel ideal for a quick one night stop on our 3 day journey south to Florida. It is right next to the Oglesby interchange for I-39 about 3 miles south of the I-39 interchange with I-80. It was reasonably priced. Check in was quick and efficient with a competent and professional desk clerk. Our room was a...

On a recent unseasonably warm weekend, my wife and i sought to get away and do some hiking. We turned our attention to the Starved Rock State Park area. The lodge at the park was unavailable -- and expensive. But a few miles outside the park is Oglesby, and we reserved a room at the Best Western. The room was...

Alyssa is a great young lady. Helped make the stay very welcoming. She really seems to care about the clients that comeshe in and makes everyone very welcomed. The bed could be a bit better but overall this is a excellent hotel to stay at in that area and for the value. GREAT JOB!!
