Loved the hotel. Charming and rustic with all the mod con's. Beds were too soft but that's a personal choice. WiFi was sporadic in our room but good in common areas. Loved the hotel though and would definitely stay there again. P. S. Make sure you park in the right parking lot!

We decided to stay at the Montvale rather than at a chain motel just so we could have a historic hotel experience. In this respect, the Montvale shines, as there are not a lot of old hotels like this around anymore. Lots of antique furniture, a floor plan with an open atrium in the middle and skylights overhead, and easy... More

Downtown location is great. The motif is pretty cool, it's really a throwback to a time when people used to sit around and visit (converse) with one another. The hotel needs some TLC. Our room wasn't bad but the bed was small and pillows a bit tired. I do recommend getting a room on the 3rd (top) floor. My room... More

First let me start by saying when I booked our room for 4 of us. I never thought the booking agency would give us a room for two. I should have looked at Tripadvisor. Having said this let's talk about the hotel. So much potential, but obviously management lacks leadership skills and I guarantee they do not care about reviews.... More

I wish I had better things to say about The Montvale, but the overall cleanliness of this place was non-existent. With previous reviewers seconding this claim, I went against my better judgment and booked it anyways. I will not be staying here again to say the least... *I would like to note that the staff at the front desk were... More

The description of this hotel was MISLEADING in many ways. I was very disappointed. I immediately told the manager that this was not what I was sold on the internet. I even provided her with the details on the reservation sheet that I had with me. Because I had just traveled 5 hours and was very tired (and there for... More

I always try to take into consideration the owner, workers etc before I put in a bad word, but this my friends is for you. This place seriously needs to clean up. The comforter on our bed was horribly disgusting, and the chairs not much better. I do not blame the front desk staff at all, I think they are... More

We stay here yearly when we visit our daughter. We love the upstairs foyer antiques/living room with the large lobby upstairs. We do miss Catacombs.... Noise from Rain can be heard somewhat....however not like the loud music from the bar that closed down. Would highly recommend.
