We stayed at the Monticello Gateway Inn and were very pleased with the newly remodeled rooms. The decor was very nice, beds comfortable along with a great morning breakfast. The staff were excellent to work with. Kids loved the pool. Definitely will stay here again.

Welcoming staff that greet you with a smile! Our room was very clean and comfortable. Newly updated rooms provided a very restful night. The morning breakfast had everything from oatmeal, to cereal to fresh fruit. The indoor pool was a hit for the kids too! I would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

As a Motorcoach Driver, I brought a high school group visiting nearby U of Illinois. Hotel and staff went out of their way to accommodate this group in every way possible. Exceptional breakfasts! Night clerk Branden really took good care of check in and other needs as they arose. Very helpful.

I resided at this hotel for two months while working away from home. Manisha and her staff were very welcoming. I was given a room that overlooked a pond and woods from the back side of the hotel and also had a back door to go directly outside. Very nice feature for an extended stay. The bed and pillows were...

The first room we were given was not cleaned properly. We were moved to another room and it was fine. Overall our stay was okay. I noticed they were doing improvements while we were there. This was our fourth stay at this location.

Very nice place to have a reception. We were able to accomodate approximately 150 people comfortably. The banquet room was newly remodeled. Minisha and her staff were extremely helpful throughout the set up. Whether it be a forgotten item or one that just didn't work, Minisha was very creative in finding a solution. Would definitely recommend.

My wife and I have been staying at this location on area visits over the last five years. The facility has been undergoing upgrades. The ownership and staff are very accommodating and reflect small town warmth. Try an odd numbered room for water and wooded view as well as morning sun. This location is a wonderful alternative to more costly...

I wanted to take my son somewhere for his 16th birthday. And he requested Internet , a pool, and movie channels. We got it all. We had 2 breakfasts during our stay and it was excellent. There was so much to pick from and it all tasted great.
