“This Hotel was a Nightmare!!!”
Reviewed February 24, 2011

The hotel looked charming on the internet and we booked a three nights stay while we visited my husbands family in Longview. The room itself was extremely run down and did not even have a deadbolt on the door. Our first night there we returned from dinner to find the flimsy chain on our hotel room door and two people inside. The man finally let us into OUR OWN room and said that he was given our room upon checking in. We asked them if the fact that our clothing and items in the room were a hint that the room was occupied. He stated they were meeting a family member and assumed the items belonged to them. Fortunately nothing was stolen, but we checked out and went to Quality Inn. Quality Inn is The Ritz compared to this hotel. When my husband complained to the staff at the Monticello about strangers in our room they were not apologetic all at. Quality Inn was very clean, has deadbolts on the door and a nice contiental breakfast too!!!

At one time it was a grand hotel, and now it is just a comfortable old hotel with a very nice staff and convenient amenities. Each room has a refrigerator and microwave and there is a bar and restaurant on site. The guest rooms are simple, but comfortable and in good repair. They also have three fancier suites available. The restaurant is inviting and attractive, serving excellent breakfasts. I haven't eaten other meals there, but I have heard they are good as well. The hotel does quite a bit of catering for parties and events as they have a number of banquet rooms. The bar has a lively and friendly atmosphere, and often features live music on the weekends.

Conveniently located in the middle of town, the hotel is right across the street from a park. It is quiet at night, especially if you have a room away from the round about. The only suggestion I have for them is to get rid of the kitsch and clutter in the lobby. This would go a long way in restoring some of the former elegance that is hidden by some of the tacky decorations. I have stayed there a number of times. Overall, a great bargain and a pleasant experience.
