For non-campers, a night at Best Western Oglesby was a great way to prepare for a day-hike at Starved Rock State Park! The accommodations were clean.

After a day of hiking at Starved Rock, Mathiessen, or Buffalo Rock State parks, this property is very welcoming. Good showers and comfortable beds make for a good end to your day. Pool and hot tub, especially the hot tub, were a wonderful addition to the relaxing night.

We had a wonderful time during our stay. The room was very clean, and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful! I was amazed that every shift change the next staff member was even better than the one before! The pool was great and clean! I would definitely recommend this hotel!

We traveled over 2700 miles with kids and pets and stayed at Best Western hotels whenever possible. This hotel was the most accommodating for our needs, but all were wonderful. Highly recommend the Best Western chain when your family includes more then two legged children. Thank you!

Stayed here a couple of nights while visiting Starved Rock for some hiking. Friendly staff. No frills but no bad surprises either plus it's got a heated indoor pool and hot tub so that was nice. screw Flanders

Close to the off and on ramp of the freeway, clean rooms, some updating has been done. Staff was very friendly at check in and check out. Some freeway noise, but that is not real noticeable. Easy access and exit close to eating establishments and gas stations I would stay here again

We look forward to traveling this route between northern and southern states, every time planning travel around a stay at this motel in Oglesby, IL. Every visit has been pleasurable, including the swim in their very nice pool. We consider this as the best of all the motels we have stayed in.

Our family loves Best Westerns, but this hotel is in need of renovation/upgrading. They STILL have some rooms that allow smoking--it's 2015 people. We had a comfortable night's sleep--the beds were good, and the staff was professional.
