HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 October 2016

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...

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.

Good beds, clean rooms and nice breakfast. Have spent several weekends here for scrapbooking retreats. Staff is very responsive to guests and bend over backwards to help with any requests. Rooms have been updated recently. Very reasonable rates when compared to hotels just up the interstate by the University of Illinois

What a nice accommodating place to spend the weekend scrapbooking with friends! The sleeping rooms were clean and nicely decorated, and the staff members were so gracious. It is close to the interstate with easy access, there is a breakfast bar and a restaurant within walking.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a small issue with our room which they cheerfully corrected. They seemed to genuinely care about their guests. I would gladly recommend them to friends or family planning a stay in Monticello.

I booked the room with the Hot Tub and King Bed and it was great. Staff was great, it was a great stay. A+ It is close to the main roads and we were able to have breakfast each morning and then hit the town for activities. Everything is very convenient to the hotel and it had been remodeled so...
