Best Western Monticello
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Monticello
Reviewed November 5, 2012

So this place will never win any awards... Period... However, it was clean and just about comfortable, if a little dated, and as other reviews note, this really is the only game in town... So it's not surprising they can get away with charging more than you would really want to pay!

Finally I must add the staff were excellent, very helpful and attentive.

Gave our room away despite them calling us to confirm the reservation. The rooms have not been updated in a long time. The pullout couch they gave us in lieu of one of the beds we were supposed to have was from circa 1980, with several springs missing. The pullout bed was basically not serviceable. Really not a nice place.

We paid an exorbitant $180 for a night in what the hotel laughingly bills as a suite. In reality its an oddly shaped second floor room above the lobby that feels like something the contractor couldn't figure out. The cleaning staff must have the same problem because they certainly never used a mop, vacuum or dust rag in that room.
The staff offered (after twice promising and then failing to send someone to clean the room) to alert the owner. I replied to the effect that the owner had to be fully aware of how bad the room was and if he treated his customers with so little consideration he very likely treated the employees as badly. I received a "can't comment" and resigned shrug in response. This is the one star version of Hotel Hell.

when going to the bethel woods museum and/or concert site (woodstock festival site), this is your best option for staying overnight. while i do believe they tweak their rates around the concerts, it does provide a good location, free beakfast (all be it nothing fancy), and you are right up the street from the racino at monticello raceway. there are b & b's nearby, but most are very expensive, and just not worth the price (value thing!)

Room Tip: ask for a room with a balcony, its a nice view!

I have stayed so many times at his hotel, its never a bad experiance. Room is very clean (as always) and free breakfast is excellent. Cannot have more for the price paid.

This is a out of no where area but still to maintain hotel in this area in this economy is impressive.

Front desk is always willing to rearrange the room based on customer preference and request. I have not seen anyone like them before, they are always put customer on #1 priority. Best people and good rooms. I am happy with my stay here...

We only stayed one night, but it was really great. We reserved a standard room, and it was huge! Everything was very clean. The hotel overall was quiet - in fact, we never heard anyone coming or going. Front desk staff was extremely friendly . Would definitely recommend to anyone travel to monticello ny right on rout 17

This is the WORST hotel/motel we have ever been to, and that is saying a lot. We are not all that finicky and we just needed a place to stay over for one night. The sanitary conditions were terrible. The bath tub had pubic hair stuck in the jacuzzi jets. The mirrors had what looked like DNA samples on them. The over all cleanliness was abissmal. Rather than subjecting ourselves to this filth, we just got back in our car, drove home 2 and a half hours and then drove back the next day adding 300 miles to our trip. To top it all off, the room was ridiculously expensive and we just ate the cost. Best Western should be embarrased to have its name on this hotel and based on this experience we will stay at any other hotel/motel as long as it is NOT a Best Western.
