    « great time »

    one of nicest and helpful staff I have ever experienced. they took the time to ask me if I had any dietary needs and were very genuine in every thing they helped with. they really seemed to enjoy making me happy and were very personable in every way. this is an excellent staff and I would highly recommend them to all.

    « Overall Excellent Experience »

    I travel a lot. This place was everything that I look for and rarely find. Beautiful Views, clean, comfortable...exceptional staff that greeted me with a smile every time. If I were passing though the area again, I'd never stay anywhere else.

    « great place for a retreat »

    I've attend scrapbook retreats at this hotel for several years, and it's always been great. They've always done a great job of accommodating our needs, and the recent remodeling is a plus, as well. Clean, quiet, good breakfast.

    « Great Spot for Scrapbooking Retreat! »

    I've been hosting scrapbooking retreats at the Best Western Monticello Gateway Inn for the past five years. We use this hotel twice a year, and between 40-50 women attend the weekend events. We've stayed at other venues in the past but have found this hotel to be the perfect spot for us. Manisha and her staff are attentive, the banquet room is perfect for our needs, the guest rooms are clean and comfortable, and the price is reasonable. We appreciate all of the up-dates that have been done over the past year. The new carpeting, paint, furniture and decor throughout the hotel are fresh, beautiful and trendy. The remodeled breakfast room and up-graded breakfasts are a nice addition. I highly recommend this hotel for a similar event or just for an over-night stay.

    « Weekend Retreat »

    Accomadating staff. Lovely remodel (they were in midst of remodeling during last year's retreat). The only improvement I would like would be better lighting in the lounge area for reading. Will return for these retreats (bi-annual) for years to come.

    « Great get away spot for scrapbookers. »

    A group of women have been coming to this hotel twice a year for at least 5 years now. This hotel is always making improvements and the service is excellent. Clean facilities and friendly staff. Most recently they have updated the room tvs, the breakfast area and the conference rooms. New carpet thru out. Nice pool too!

    « Scrapbooking Retreat »

    The motel is clean, decorated well and the rooms are are newly remodeled. The staff was so friendly and accomodating. I and my scrapbooking friends have been choosing this Best Western for our retreat weekends twice a year for 5 years. It is a great place to stay!

    « Newly remodeled! »

    New carpet and furniture throughout the building makes this place eye pleasing. Attended a scrapbooking retreat and utilized a double room and large conference room. Both were freshly painted with new carpet!

    « Business in Central Illinois, skip Champaign Stay here »

    Had business in Champaign Urbana and stayed a few miles away here. Was an excellent stay from top to bottom. I am traveling 25 weeks a year and this property a staff were on point. Rarely in facilities such as this is the property so clean and staff so responsive. Highly recommended.

    « Wedding Day Bliss »

    I held my wedding and reception at the Best Western in Monticello. The banquet room was large and spacious, the buffet was set up in the dinning area, and there is a beautiful wood deck off the back of the hotel that we utilized for photos. The hotel had just been renovated as well, new carpets, new linens, new rooms and bed. Absolutely perfect for our wedding day. We were able to reserve a block of rooms and obtain a great discounted price for our guests. I would highly recommend this hotel for you banquet and hotel needs.

    « Love the new renovations! »

    This gem is easily accessible from I-72 between Champaign, IL and Decatur, IL. It is a lovely hotel completely renovated, with friendly staff, and comfortable accommodations. I attend a conference here every year to scrapbook with a large group of crafters. I love the new furniture and carpet colors throughout the hotel. The staff is always helpful and friendly. My favorite part is the huge back deck by the pool center. I sit out there and enjoy the sun while gazing at the beautiful wooded area behind. I 100% recommend this hotel.

    « Great Place for Events! »

    My room faced the river which was lovely on a fall day. Great facility - excellent accommodations. We came here for a scrapbooking retreat and it was wonderful. The rooms are clean and the food is excellent. I love all the updates. Also just a quick jaunt to downtown or into Champaign-Urbana.

    « Down For a Family Wedding »

    My husband and I stayed this past weekend to attend a family wedding, It was a very busy time for the staff as the wedding reception was also held here. The staff was very inviting and accommodating. We arrived several hours before normal check in time & were able to check into our room. It was well appointed and very comfortable! We enjoyed having a small fridge and a microwave in the room. It appears as if there are some repairs and changes going on, however they didn't bother us at all. Manisha, the manager, was wonderful! She had someone in training, and was very patient with them while working through a process. That speaks volumes to me. To be so very busy with a full hotel, a wedding reception, and still take time to gently guide her new employee. We will certainly stay here again when we come down for visits, I am also pleased to know that the are pet friendly! Did I mention a great breakfast was included? It was just what we needed! Looking forward to next time & seeing all the updates!

    « Great experience! »

    Reserved a block of 18 rooms at the Monticello Gateway Best Western and the staff did a fantastic job hosting. It appears the recently updated the rooms and are very nice. The staff worked very well to assist our large group with meals and space to gather at the hotel.

    « Can't beat it! »

    The price is fair and we would definitely come back. Manisha, the owner, is wonderful. You can tell she cares about her guests and wants to make sure you enjoy your stay. Checking in was effortless and our room was clean. The pool looked inviting, but we didn't have a chance to check it out. Breakfast was good with the usual choices and a few less common things like cheesy hash browns, cut. Fresh fruit including strawberries and watermelon, breakfast and granola bars, a few different brands of yogurt including gogurt, and almond soy vanilla and chocolate. We're really big on customer service and we would come back to support someone who takes pride in her business.

    « Great experience (stayed here for the Allerton conference) »

    The room was clean and spacious, the location was great (close enough to my conference venue; they had a shuttle to the venue), the breakfast was good and filling. Most importantly, the staff at the hotel was absolutely amazing- they were extremely friendly and very very helpful! The only downside is that since the location (Monticello) is somewhat remote, you don't get uber/taxis here- so if you wish to go around, you would need to have a car.

    « improvements »

    During my recent visit to the Monticello Best Western I noticed many improvements from past visits. They have expanded their breakfast items which was a nice surprise. The staff was very pleasant and accomodating.

    « Best Place to Stay in Monticello »

    This was our third stay at this hotel and again it met our expectations. The staff is friendly, courteous and very helpful. The accommodations are good and the location is very good and easy to get to. Will likely stay there again if visiting the Monticello area.


    Newly updated, very clean, fresh BIG room. The staff & service were incredible. Very nice pool & hot tub. Check In & Check Out was a breeze. We loved it! Can't wait to go back. We'll be staying there again for sure!

    « A Good Place to Crash For a Couple Nights »

    The check in process was swift and the front desk was very courteous. The hotel has recently been remodeled and you can tell. The carpets are clean and fresh and look very well kept. The halls are well lit and clean. Our room was just a queen bed for me and my girlfriend. New furniture in the room and very clean. The only thing I could see wrong was the hotel must be re-doing the trim in the room since it was a visual the old trim had been ripped out. Not a big deal just aesthetics. Overall a very comfortable stay, I'd recommend you stay here, good room for the price.

    « Horrible experience!!! »

    Upon checking in even though I asked for a quiet room near the door I got s noisy room across from the front desk. Room 107. We had two small dogs and were attending a wedding at Allerton. Because the room was in the center of all the noise and traffic our dogs were barking. After traveling hours to get here and destroying my Labor Day weekend we had to leave the wedding after 2 hours. If they had tried to accommodate us we could have stayed at this wedding!! In addition this room was so noisy we could not sleep. I was very upset and this not only sours my feelings on a Best Western I would never consider having a wedding or gathering at Allerton.

    « clean great value »

    I was Looking for motel just off the highway. This was a Clean spacious motel with helpful staff and very large indoor pool. Excellent value The back of the motel looks over a pretty river. Beautiful small town with lovely courthouse and chimes playing on the hour. Small restaurant and a DQ on the square

    « Friendly staff »

    Although some people might be put off by some minor details with their current renovation, I found the hotel very comfortable. The staff was outgoing and most accommodating. I have stayed there before with grandkids. Nice indoor pool. I would definitely stay there again.

    « OK but needs a firmer bed »

    The hotel is fine but the bed is too soft. I need a firm bed. The toilet is too close to the floor, I prefer a taller toilet. Other than those things the hotel was fine. Staff was very helpful. Very clean room. Please, a firmer bed and taller toilet next time.

    « Disappointed »

    I stayed here last month with my husband, 11 month old daughter, sister, and parents. This is really the only option in town when visiting family in Monticello, which is a shame. The good things about the place are the wifi and free breakfast. The rest leaves something to be desired. The rooms were newly renovated but it seemed cosmetic. There was a door to the outside in our room and there was a gap between the floor and door that required a towel to be shoved in there to prevent hot air and bugs from coming in. All of our rooms felt humid no matter how low you put the air. There were also dead bugs in our rooms. When I made the reservation I specifically asked for adjoining rooms so I could put the baby to sleep but still be close until I went to bed. I was assured I would get that but when I checked in that was not the room I had, the associate remembered making my reservation and told me adjoining meant side by side but not necessarily having a door. It took about 10 minutes to find rooms that actually had a door between them. We also used the pool and it appeared dirty (clumps of hair matted to the bottom). Once my daughter gets older and doesn't need to go back to the hotel for frequent naps we will be staying at a hotel that isn't in Monticello.

    « Great Venue, Great Stay! »

    We recently had our daughter's wedding reception at the Best Western - Monticello. The staff was very helpful, and the facility was superb. All of our guests greatly appreciated the location, the banquet hall, and the rooms, and also the extra large indoor swimming pool. We had two caterers provide meals, which was a hit with our guests. Thank You, Best Western for your service before, during, and after our reception, you guys were great to work with.

    « Best Nights Ever »

    The staff at this hotel will go out of their way to make you feel welcome. They are really friendly and want to help in any way they can. The hotel was under renovation and they kept apologizing that everything wasn't perfect yet. They offered free cold water bottles when we left to go for the day and when we returned. It was a wonderful experience.

    « Best Western Monticello Gateway Inn, Monticello, ILLINOIS »

    Excellent service. Friendly staff. Staff goes out of their way to make sure your stay is good. Hotel is very clean and rooms are newly furnished. You can not beat the price at the Best Western Monticello Gateway Inn, Monticello, ILLINOIS.

    « best Western »

    It was a beautiful place, staff were nice and helpful. redone pool, don't forget your swimsuit next time. Food was great. Remodeled all inside, pleasant scenery. Would recommend this to everyone. Had a great time.

    « Shabby and going downhill »

    This was once a pristine hotel. It is the only national brand available in Monticello, IL, so they pretty much have the local market cornered. My room was just OK, but the TV was broken and had to go thru the hassle of moving everything late at night. Breakfast was mediocre. The scrambled eggs were some terrible conoction of reconstituted dry powder and had an unappealing granular texture. The waffles were good, however.

    « Spinning seminar, Olds College master spinners course. »

    Excellent location, classrooms good size and lightning. Service admirable.Lunches were provided. Directions to local restaurants and tourist sites were concise and accurate. We've had our classes here for two years. We hope to finish the last four levels of the course here as well.

    « Treated like kings »

    We had a class/ retreat here and the treated us so well!!! The room was nice and was the room we used for the event. The hotel is close to town and has a gas station right across the street All around great experience. We will be back for years to come

    « Best Service and Attention to Customers »

    Attending a convention for four days in this hotel the management was so attentive to our needs, accommodating and flexible to everything we needed on the spur of the moment. The catered meals were outstanding and the rooms were cleaned very well every day. The new carpeting throughout added to our enjoyment and our group hopes to return to this hotel for many years to come.

    « Great place for a ladies retreat! »

    This is my 3rd time attending an annual craft retreat at this hotel. The staff is excellent and makes sure we have everything we need. This year they are upgrading. there is new carpet and furnishings. It looks great.

    « Convenient location, quiet place »

    I have stayed at this establishment many times over the past ten years due to family in the area. It has always been a quiet place to retreat to. The hotel is set again a beautiful tree setting and has great decks out back to find retreat in. There is also a huge pool to relax in! The hotel has been updated and looks the best I have ever seen. I look forward to returning.

    « A great place to stay, »

    This is our 2nd year coming Best Western Gateway , This is a great place to stay and have are crank-in, Everyone goes out of there way to make our visit the best , Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable . We will be staying here next year. Thanks to the owner & staff

    « Cows 2016 »

    Great place to stay. Everyone was very friendly. The rooms are clean and very pleasant. They have a wonderful breakfast with super good waffles! Conference room was spacious and more than adequate. I look forward to coming back next year.

    « Cows Crank-in 2016 »

    What a terrific hotel.first of all the price was amazing this hotel. Everyone in our group was very happy with the accommodations and service we were offered. I would definitely recommend this hotel for any groups that are looking for a warm, welcoming conference experience.

    « COWS Crankers of Wonderful Socks »

    I was co chair of our retreat this year and was simply amazed at the service and friendliness of the manager and her staff. Everything we asked for was provided cheerfully. If we wanted tables on the patio we got tables on the patio. Snacks and lunches brought in. Our comfort was the managers first priority. We plan to use this facility for our retreat again and again

    « Best Yet! »

    The room was amazingly clean...under the bed, behind the furniture, every crook and cranny!Even the air conditioner/heating unit filter was spotless! The staff was helpful and courteous and went above and beyond! Best yet, the price was right! I have paid more for far less!

    « Local Hotel »

    I have been a local in the area my whole life. The Gateway Inn has been more than accommodating for my family. I recently attended a function in the banquet room and was blown away by all of the renovations in the last year or so. All new carpet and fresh paint. The staff is always so helpful and personable. This hotel has such a "home-y" feel.

    « Best Time Ever »

    Me and my friends came over to visit family so we found ourselves staying at this hotel we noticed they had a really nice pool and went swimming for a couple of hours staff was really nice rooms were updated and really nice finally breakfast was fantastic.

    « Not What I Expected... :( »

    First of all, my rate, after taxes was $116/night, and this was not worth that at all. If you're paying $60-70, then this would be OK. The service was excellent, although my interactions were limited, I only stayed one night. The room we received had missing floor trim boards and the glue was exposed. There was a HEAVY chemical smell, most likely from new carpeting, but it was difficult to sit in there with that smell. The shower curtain was filthy, with black stains on it and the shower made a horrible screeching sound when the water ran. The breakfast area was so warm that it was uncomfortable and we ate in our room, however, the food quality offered at breakfast was one of the worst I've seen. My kids wouldn't eat any of it, the muffins were extremely stale, the bagels were so hard you could use them as a hammer, and there was no water available to drink. The swimming pool is perhaps the largest I've seen for an indoor pool but it is FREEZING!! I was unable to go in because it was just too cold. I also was uncomfortable sitting in the pool area while my kids swam due to the humidity and heat in the pool area. The elevator was SO hot that it was hard to breathe, and we didn't use it due to that. The pros, again, the service and the beds were comfortable but I feel really ripped off being charged $116 for this room. REALLY ripped off.

    « A Very Good Hotel »

    We stayed here over night and enjoyed the hotel. Our room was cleans and everything worked fine for us. The beds was clean as well as the floor. ( I wore white socks and they stayed clean on the dark carpeted floor). The breakfast was good, It's not a sit down full breakfast but you had your choice of hot and cold food. This hotel may not be a 5 star high -end with a door man greeting you at the door but you will feel safe and comfortable at this location.

    « reservation not as requested and confirmed, no housekeeping services had issues with carpeting every where breakfast Sun »

    no amenities television did not work had to have staff work on it lied to me about what floor I would be on as I had to have a first floor room due to disability and traveling with my dog and would need to go out No breakfast on Monday 1 yogurt and hard waffle mix no housekeeping had to go to desk and get my own clean towels lied about giving AARP and AAA discount got nothing owners rude and lied about everything I ever asked Paula or the other owner?? Messages will not be returned but the staff will lie to you or else management lies either way do nit expect a return call

    « Convienent »

    Almost 24 hours traveling and no where to stop last minute at a reasonable rate due to it being the weekend of the NASCAR 500 race in Minneapolis.This was the only place that had space available. Despite being under renovation, the staff was very pleasant and the beds were really comfortable.

    « The Place to Stay in Monticello, IL »

    Well run and well maintained hotel in this small town with few hotel choices. Better than staying in Champaign and having to drive 30 minutes each way to and from your hotel. Good restaurant next door to the hotel.

    « Great experience »

    Stayed at the Best Western for the first time and what a great surprise this hotel was. The breakfast was great, lots of variety and the staff was friendly and accommodating. Rooms looked renovated and the beds were very comfortable. I will definitely be back.

    « Very expensive for location and quality »

    I first off have to say that staff were friendly but not very knowledgeable. Most of the time during my stay I would find a group of them outside in front smoking. The rooms were ok and beds were comfortable. I had both Friday and Saturday booked but cancelled Saturday due to the price being 30.00 higher on Saturday. I hope another hotel will come in the area and give them some competition. I payed close to the same rate that I pay in some upscale hotels. The breakfast was nothing to brag about. Small white pancakes that were pit in a crockpot and anemic looking sausage patties. Coffee was good and they had cold cereal. Not sure I would stay here and pay that price again.

    « Nice place to stay »

    Recently renovated and it is a very neutral modern decor, comfortable beds , huge indoor pool, nice variety of breakfast food, friendly staff and safe area to stay. We will definitely stay there again when we visit in the fall.

    « satisfied again »

    I have stayed here numerous times over many years. When rates are low this is a very good deal for the price. Room was clean, adequately furnished, and comfortable but could have used an ofc chair at the writing table rather than a straight back chair. Motel always seems to be under renovation! Breakfast was neatly laid out but was only adequate, not exceptional. Large pool is a plus for anyone interested in actually using it for exercise. Will be back in area at least one more time this year and this place will be my 1st choice.

    « Only Game in town. Want to stay else where. »

    If not for being the only game in town. I would not return. Family lives here, so want to be close by. Have stayed problably 5-6 timers over the past few years. This place does not improve with age. Staff is foksy and tries. terribly expensice for the value. This should be in the $29-$39 range. I will be back, because I love my family. How ever I am pryare for other options.

    « Very comfortable beds »

    When visiting family in the Monticello area we always stay at the Best Western. The beds have been upgraded since our last visit, as has the complimentary breakfast. The hotel has been going through rennovation and is looking really good.

    « Scrapbooking Weekend Retreat »

    For several years I have attended a weekend Creative Memories scrapbooking retreat at this Best Western in Monticello and have always enjoyed the the room, food and service. This year they have remodeled the lobby, banquet room and breakfast area. They have also added some hot food items to the selections each day which I enjoyed. My understanding is they are in the process of remodeling all their guest rooms as well. My room was clean and comfortable. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

    « Homey, cozy, local hotel »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past couple of years, most recently last weekend and I always find it comfortable. The new carpeting and paint in the common areas has upgraded those areas nicely. I understand the guest rooms will be upgraded soon too. The staff is friendly and welcoming. This is not a big city hotel but a comfortable, homey place to stay.

    « Scrapbooking Weekend Retreat »

    Since 2011, I have hosted a scrapbooking weekend retreat for ~50 women twice a year at this hotel. The banquet room was recently freshened with new carpet and new paint, and the breakfast room was also remodeled. A hot item was added to the complimentary breakfast, and an attendant kept the food replenished and the room clean. They are getting ready to remodel all of the guest rooms with new carpet and furniture. The room that I slept in was clean and comfortable, and I did not receive any complaints from the other 52 women in attendance. The owner and staff are always friendly and very accommodating to our needs.

    « Good »

    Me and my friend stopped by after an ice storm and the rates were very affordable, the staff was very friendly and accommodating, Internet worked well. beds were comfy. over all a good experience. would stay again

    « Dusty, Worn and Overpriced »

    We have stayed at this hotel several times before since it is in the town where my parents' assisted living facility is located. On each visit the condition seems to have deteriorated. The dust was so thick on the television stand you could write your name on it. The bathroom doorknob was falling out of the wood. There was dust everywhere and debris on the floor. If you suffer from asthma or allergies as I do, beware. On our last stay, we had to move housekeeping carts and painting supplies out of the elevator so that we could take our luggage up to the room. On one visit, the refrigerator smelled absolutely terrible, didn't work and it took them hours to change it out with one from an unoccupied room that actually worked. There is usually an odor in the facility, particularly in the warmer months. The quality of the breakfasts have declined as has the number of options. We have stayed at this Best Western six times in the past year and a half and each time the experience has been worse. The main reason we continued to give them or business was because the owner was nice enough to discount the 79 dollar per night rate because we had parents in the town's assisted living facility. We appreciated this, and continued to stay there and overlook the deteriorating conditions. This time we were told that she would no longer be offering any discount, which was unfortunate since our trip was due to a medical emergency with my father and we had no choice in making the trip. Although we were told this was due to the need for renovations, it would be nice if we were paying for them after they were done, not while they were being planned.We won't be going back.

    « Annual Event »

    This is the 4th year we have had our annual farm bureau fundraiser here and they did a wonderful job hosting. The room was freshly remodeled and the staff went above and beyond to help us out with anything we needed. I would highly recommend using this facility for your meeting needs.

    « Annual Dinner »

    Had an annual Farm Bureau meeting in the banquet hall. Room was freshly remodeled and looked nice. Restrooms were stocked and clean. Staff was friendly and I think everyone had a great time. I would suggest this hotel to any small group needing a place to host an event.

    « Great Local Hotel »

    Staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. The rooms are well kept and very clean. The bathroom were clean and there was plenty of room for my kids to watch TV. The continental breakfast had a lot of choices and was delicious compared to most continental breakfast as other places. I would recommend this hotel if you are staying in the area. I would not recommend staying at Allerton mansion, this hotel is cleaner, service is excellent, and the staff is so nice!!

    « Family Wedding »

    We stayed here the night before the wedding, and we had a fantastic experience. The employees were incredibly friendly and very helpful. We had trouble drying our laundry with the coin dryers, so they not only offered to dry our clothes for free with their machines, they also folded everything after. Highly recommend!

    « 9:23 a.m. central time »

    eh , hotel was ok except for not getting the room i had originally reserved . I have nothing else to say. staff friendly . hotel was being remodeled . breakfast was luke warm . this is annoying ! i don't get this !

    « Overnight in Monticello »

    Overall, this motel met all of our expectations. There was some confusion due to room renovations going on, but not a big deal. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Our only complaint was that we signed up for express checkout and did not receive an email copy of our bill.

    « Very friendly and always accommodating »

    This is the second straight year that we have brought our high school wrestling team to this Best Western. We could not be more pleased. They have always offered to clean our uniforms and helped us with our evening meal. The pool is great and the rooms are very nice. We will continue to bring our teams here for years to come.

    « Upgrades »

    I checked out of this hotel today. This hotel has been going through some serious upgrades and is looking great! I reported a previous negative review because it was written by a disgruntled employee who has since been let go. I overheard her telling someone else that she wrote it. I spoke with an employee about it today and they said there hasn't been any guest stay there, with that name and that last initial. There really should be a way to weed out those people who are just out to be vindictive. That being said, Well done Monticello Best Western, I will be back again!

    « Monticello IL Best Western »

    This is a no-frills Inn with clean comfortable rooms at a decent price. It appears that they are going through a renovation, which will be interesting to see after they are complete. There is a gas station/convenience store and a restaurant nearby within walking distance.

    « If you have another choice, take it »

    I stay here regularly for business. I can say if I had a choice I'd stay somewhere else. The rooms are rarely clean. I have had multiple times after I've gotten to my room where I've turned around, went back to the front desk, and asked for a different room. I walked into a room that had a disgusting white wash cloth on the bathroom floor that was black and red all over and looked like death. It makes me wonder if they actually clean the beds or just throw the blankets back on and make them look neat. They have been remodeling this place for at least six months. They will replace a lamp or a light fixture and then something else the next week instead of doing it all at once. After the guys have done some type of remodel in the room the cleaning people don't go back and clean again. They just rent out the room with it being dirty with obvious construction remnants all around. Dirt, dust, sometimes tools.... One of the rooms I was assigned had air conditoner/heater parts strung all over the place. The rates keep going up and up also. I'm paying over $20 more than when I first started staying here. The free wifi never actually works, it just keeps loading and loading. The front desk people are not very attentive and, most of them don't know what they are doing. One week a new person, that hadn't been there more than a month, was training another new person. The cleaning people obviously don't want to work very hard because of the lack of cleanliness. I believe this to be a direct reflection of the management. Which, the manager keeps desperately hounding me to write a review and, I've heard her asking other customers to write reviews also. So, a majority of these recent reviews are forced and probably not completely true.

    We spent two nights at this hotel. there was only a few guests staying while we were there. (Christmas week). There is a rework going on at this property. The new carpet in Hall was beautiful. The breakfast was far below anything, I was expecting,but could understand with the low level of customers staying,at the property. Powered eggs are just not very appetizing. The property has a nice stream behind the building that provides a nice view.

    « Over Priced. Pool was COLD. »

    The price has gone up and up at this hotel. The pool was not heated nor was the room it was in. This was not the first time the pool was cold. We will not be staying here again but rather at the Drury Inn just 20 or so minutes away in Champaign, IL where the pool is always heated. And for the $110 we paid, the cost won't be much more for a luxury hotel stay. This is your average hotel. Nothing fancy other than the price.

    « A very nice place to stay in Monticello! »

    Very nice and clean hotel! Newly remodeled. Grandkids absolutely loved the pool area! The staff is very friendly and helpful! Totally recommend if you are staying in the Monticello/Champaign/Decatur area! Our company also uses this motel when in the area for business

    « Owner of my Company »

    I would like to personally thank the owner and manager for the kindness and cleanliness of our rooms. We have rented up to 10 rooms a night some weeks. We have stayed here building a local Church. I stay a motels all across the country and give a 10

    « Great Location, Excellent Hotel and Courteous Staff »

    Our room was large and very clean. The staff at this hotel was excellent, the rooms clean and comfortable. While I had to leave each morning before 6am, the breakfast staff went out of their way to ensure there was fresh hot coffee available. Unlike hotels i have stayed, they have a huge breakfast area with a variety of options for everyone. The room and bed was very comfortable. nice work station and area to sit and relax. The backside of the hotel borders a lake and forest preserve which provides for a quiet and soothing environment. The indoor pool was huge and adequately heated. I would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Champaign or Decatur area.

    « vacation get-away »

    Very clean motel, room newly redecorated, very nice. Staff was helpful with restaurants, things to do. Nice pool. The next time we stay here (which we will do again) we will bring our suits. For a small town, great motel. Lynn

    « Visiting family »

    Receptionist was very sweet and nice. Room, not so much. Dirty towel, hand soap open, cup of coffee on top of TV stand, empty used coffee cup on vanity, floor dirty, receipt left on end table. Room was not cleaned. They offered to move us, but was already in PJs. Wanted to move us upstairs, but my mother who uses a cane would have to walk all the way back to lobby to use elevator then walk way back down to room. They did reduce room rate, but not by much. Very noisy.

    « Go next door for breakfast »

    Bed and bedroom fine, breakfast awful. Scrambled eggs were almost gone, dry, and room was not set up well. Had to open cabinet drawers to find coffee cups. Utensils all spread out over 4 tables. Luckily the do it yourself waffles were ok.

    « Fabulous place »

    I stayed at the Best Western Monticello Gateway Inn over a long weekend in September. The pool is amazing and huge! The breakfast was perfect and there were plenty of options. The rooms are spacious, clean, and updated! If you are traveling through or staying in the area consider this hotel in quaint Monticello. Maybe if your lucky the Sages will be playing and you can catch a game! If not there are plenty of great restaurants in town! Overall, I was very impressed and will be staying here from now on when I am in the Champaign Urbana area.

    « Easily accessible from I-72 »

    Very attractive and clean motel. Personnel were very friendly and accommodating. Will definitely stay here the next time we're in the area. Only negative is that the continental breakfast is very light. Uness you want waffles or oatmeal, there is nothing hot to eggs, sausage, etc, and minimal choice of muffins. On the plus side, there was coffee available in the breakfast room any time of day.

    « Perfect small town hotel for the area »

    We were pleasantly surprised how nice this hotel was. It was under major renovation but the staff could not be more helpful and nice to us. I do understand the renovation process as it can make for some problems but overall this hotel was just perfect as far as we were concerned. Nice continental breakfast, and beds were good to sleep on and once again can't say enough about the staff offering to help with any needs. Great job! Connie from Iowa

    « Under Construction »

    Room was under construction. There were no baseboards in the room plus painters tape still on the walls. Rewards Rates online were not the rates I was given even though I am a rewards member, I was charged Base rate of 109 dollars. Hot breakfast is a joke at this place, the only thing hot was toast. We had to go to McDonalds after leaving to eat. Very disappointed in this hotel and staff in the morning was not very helpful at all when I expressed my concerns.

    « No electricity »

    There was no electrical power available on one side of the room. This included the bed side lights. We were forced to turn off the entrance light then stumble in the dark over to the bed. Additionally I utilize a CPAP machine which I could not power unless I ran an extension cord form the bathroom all the way to my side of the bed. My wife who is an RN suggested to the clerk that we change room even offering to take a non king room. This suggestion was met with a blank stare and mumbling something about management would not allow something like this. The poor evening/night clerk was just a poor kid who obviously had no support from management as well as not enough training.
