Although some people might be put off by some minor details with their current renovation, I found the hotel very comfortable. The staff was outgoing and most accommodating. I have stayed there before with grandkids. Nice indoor pool. I would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is fine but the bed is too soft. I need a firm bed. The toilet is too close to the floor, I prefer a taller toilet. Other than those things the hotel was fine. Staff was very helpful. Very clean room. Please, a firmer bed and taller toilet next time.

I stayed here last month with my husband, 11 month old daughter, sister, and parents. This is really the only option in town when visiting family in Monticello, which is a shame. The good things about the place are the wifi and free breakfast. The rest leaves something to be desired. The rooms were newly renovated but it seemed cosmetic.... More

We recently had our daughter's wedding reception at the Best Western - Monticello. The staff was very helpful, and the facility was superb. All of our guests greatly appreciated the location, the banquet hall, and the rooms, and also the extra large indoor swimming pool. We had two caterers provide meals, which was a hit with our guests. Thank You,... More

The staff at this hotel will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are really friendly and want to help in any way they can. The hotel was under renovation and they kept apologizing that everything wasn't perfect yet. They offered free cold water bottles when we left to go for the day and when we... More

This was once a pristine hotel. It is the only national brand available in Monticello, IL, so they pretty much have the local market cornered. My room was just OK, but the TV was broken and had to go thru the hassle of moving everything late at night. Breakfast was mediocre. The scrambled eggs were some terrible conoction of reconstituted... More

Excellent location, classrooms good size and lightning. Service admirable.Lunches were provided. Directions to local restaurants and tourist sites were concise and accurate. We've had our classes here for two years. We hope to finish the last four levels of the course here as well.
