A terrific place to stay in Monticello ... meets the high standards you would expect from the HIE chain ... breakfast was phenomenal for a hotel -- quite possibly anything you could ask for (eggs, bacon/sausage, biscuits & gravy, pancakes, yogurt, bagels/bread, etc) ... room was incredibly comfortable with quality furnishings ... would definitely stay here again in traveling through...

We have stayed here many times and are always very pleased. They have a great breakfast selection with even gluten free bakery items. The housekeeping staff has always been very attentive and pleasant. It also has a great pool and patio area with rooms that open to this area. The only reason I give it four stars is because they...

This was my first return to a Holiday Inn Express since recently staying a one the week before when on business. I continue to be impressed with their chain. I was working at the hospital over in Warren, and decided the short drive to Monticello would be worth the drive. Very clean, friendly service.

I travel to Monticello a few times a year, and I have stayed at this particular property several times, especially since their really high quality expansion and renovations a couple of years ago. The owner(s) really poured a lot of money into the work, and it shows. I stayed here again during the first week of April 2014 and had... More

I stayed here for one night. I had two rooms reserved for myself and my granddaughter and her family. We arrived early and we were told we could not check in for thirty minutes. We returned in an hour and waited about twenty minutes while the front desk checked in two other parties. To say that the front desk personnel... More

I recently stayed two nights. The hotel was very clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend to anyone visitIng the Monticello area. Be sure to check out the UAM campus, it is a hidden gem. Hotel is in a great location and is close to stores and dining.

This hotel is very new and very nice! The rooms were very clean and very nicely decorated, but my biggest complaint is the walls were paper thin! In the morning, we were awakened by the sound of doors slamming and voices in the hallway. This was frustrating after a long night of travel, but the hotel was a good value... More

I am so excited to say that my family (The Lucas Family Reunion) really enjoyed our stay. The rooms were clean, the pool was great and the breakfast was delicious. Most importantly, the staff (especially Henrietta and Lee) was extremely helpful and eager to make our stay THE BEST ever.
