Got a great rate through AAA.com. Rates on the hotel website were quite a bit higher. Hotel was clean and comfortable. Room was spacious. Didn't use the pool, but it was huge for an indoor hotel pool. Friendly staff. Breakfast was the usual hotel continental. Cafe next door had great prices and good food.

We chose this hotel because there were few vacancies in Champaign. The Best Western was a nice surprise. We had a room on the back side that looked out over the wooded pond area. The hotel was quiet and the setting very peaceful. We plan on staying here again.

I stayed one night. Everyone on staff was awesome and very helpful. The restaurant next door is great and you are right off the highway. The room was comfortable with all of the basics included. Internet worked excellent, which isn't always the case at some other hotels.

THe Best Western in Monticello, IL is very clean, and comfortable. The staff was very helpful, considerate and kind. The only negative comment I would have would be that the breakfast was very sparce - I believe the times for breakfast were 6 - 10 and I was in the breakfast room at about 8:45 and much of the food...

Nice staff, good basic breakfast, on the edge of town so a quiet place to be, a nice diner next door and gas station across the street. The pool looked nice but I skipped going in it due to schedule. Helpful front desk.

My wife and I and our dog have had several extended stays here on visits, several weeks at a time. The management and staff are very accommodating and small town friendly. Fine locale for pet travelers. (Open fields in close walking proximity and two forest preserves nearby) Priced very competitively. Facility is older but being upgraded. Beds are quite comfortable....

I stayed at this hotel for three weeks while I was working on a nuke power house outage near Clinton, Illinois. The employees, Kim, Larry, Mary, Janel, and Cassie all made a construction worker make the best of his stay while being so far away from home. The rooms were clean and did not smell musty like some other reviews... More

Hotel rooms are spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and I found the complimentary breakfast quite good. The Allerton Retreat Center, where I attended a conference, is just a short 10-15 minute drive south, whereas Savoy and Champaign are 20-25 minutes north. The highlight of the hotel, however, is its staff. I had difficulties finding a way to get... More

We were very disappointed with this hotel. It was convenient to where we needed to be, but for $100 not worth it. Should have went to Champaign. The rooms especially the bathroom looked like they had just patched places on the floor etc but never bothered to paint the fixes. The breakfast was bad, starting with the coffee I think... More

The front desk staff at this hotel was very friendly and helpful. Sadly, this hardly made up for the hotel itself. The room was damp in spite of the air conditioner running almost constantly. The sheets were a bit damp even. The shower gel and shampoo dispenser in the shower was empty - discovered too late to do anything about... More
