The Manager, Manisha Patel, was awesome. As soon as we arrived she asked if we were in town for the marathon. She made sure we had everything we needed for breakfast, even had extra water and snacks for us to take on race morning. And she opened up the breakfast area at 4:30 in the morning to accommodate the runners....

I stayed at the Best Western in Monticello, Illinois in September of 2016. All I can say is I am impressed with the hotel and the staff. The rooms are all completely redone and the housekeeping staff works very hard to keep them clean. The manager of the hotel does a great job ensuring that each guest has an excellent...

About 15 minutes from Champaign along the I-74. Clean and comfortable rooms. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good wifi connection. Breakfast had a choice of hot and cold foods as well as a selection of gluten free choices. Would recommend this place.

Second time here. A little wear and tear, but cheerful staff, beautiful landscape made up for it. Quiet surroundings allowed for relaxing evening. Sunday morning breakfast was not as special because I hoped for a breakfast selection including meat, not a casserole.

We stayed at the Best Western in Monticello because it was Mother's weekend and all of the hotels in Champaign Urbana were sold out. It was about 25-30 away so that was a bit inconvenient for visiting the University of Illinois, especially on the drive back at night. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and the bed was...

My sister and I stayed one night to run a race the next day. The walls were a bit thin as there was a crying child in the next room, but not terribly disturbing. The room was clean, with refrigerator and microwave. It looked as though remodeling was happening in part of the hotel. The room came with breakfast which...

We have stayed in this hotel at least 7 times. It is a home away from home for us when visiting relatives in the area. Highly recommended! The staff is always friendly and helpful. Many improvements being done.

We held our annual church women's retreat at this hotel. It was fabulous! The rooms were very nice and recently updated. The meeting rooms were spacious and recently updated as well.

Meh for the room... Good, professional and courteous staff. Breakfast amenity was great... needs a gym. Highly upset there was no gym to work out. Wi-Fi was very spotty, didn't work on my computer and only worked once the first day on my iPhone. The highest asset of this hotel is its staff, very helpful.
