Economy Inn Express Monticello
Reviewed March 11, 2010

Initially, we were looking for a pet-friendly hotel that had an area of grass to take our dogs. This place had it at a fairly reasonable price $50/night (this is with a $10 extra charge for the dogs! What a hoot!). Upon seeing the shower area...I had my husband take me to the local Wal-Mart to purchase a pair of flip-flops to wear while showering! Yuck! Thankfully, I had "febreze" with...sprayed the room down very well!

After returning from Wal-Mart, I decided to walk the dogs around the grassy area just outside our room...what's the first thing I find? A crack pipe! It was amongst all of the other garbage that surrounded the place! Just about the time we were laying our heads down after a long day of driving...the partying and drug sales started!! I did not feel safe in this hotel!

What a disappointment! We were in Monticello to visit our son for his birthday and we cut our stay short because I couldn't bear to stay another night! We were told that this is the only pet-friendly hotel in town by the staff at the Days Inn...I will have to double check this online!
