I have stayed at this Best Western, conveniently located in Monticello just off of I-72, several times over the past 5 years. Newly updated, the pool and breakfast room look amazing. I enjoy my choices for the continental breakfast every time with something for everyone. The rooms are clean and offer great views in the back. The staff is hardworking... More

Best Western Monticello is a clean, quiet, place to stay in Central Illinois. Each room has a mini fridge and the housekeeping is timely. There is a large, olympic size pool that is well maintained. Updated breakfast includes a wide variety of cereals, oatmeal, hard boiled eggs, waffles, juices, and coffee. I was very pleased and would return again!

Stayed at Best Western in Monticello, Il. Staff was very professional and helpful. Adjoining rooms were perfect for ourselves and daughter with her small dog. Rooms were very spacious, especially the one bed with large couch, table and sink . View of a small lake from our windows was great

this hotel was ok for the most part. I had reserved a room with a ''wet bar" in it and there was no "wet bar" in it. there was a back door and the back door has no door knob and just a chain to lock it. since there was no door knob you could see to the outside through... More

The pool was the best, large and clean. Rooms were average, price was decent. View from room was nice, we were on the backside overlooking a body of water. Beds were comfortable. Continental breakfast was just OK. The coffee was good. The cream cheese inedible in my opinion (usually I count on a cream cheese bagel in these situations). I... More

Front desk service was prompt and friendly. The rooms could definitely use updating (especially the carpet). Beds were comfortable - no vents in the bathrooms - shower pressure excellent. The continental breakfast was so-so - not alot of selection to chose from. Coffee was good.

The pool is huge!! Seriously! That was impressive but the rest of the hotel is the complete opposite. Looks ok from the outside, rooms are what you'd expect for the price you pay. The breakfast you may as well skip unless all you need is coffee. They have an outside patio that is big and has a nice view but... More

We stayed in the hotel I work at when one of my daughter's friends got married & had her wedding Freception there. It was most convenient & a pleasant stay. It made it very nice to have a room right at the reception where my daughter & her friends could freshen up any time they chose too.
