Hotel Overview

TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Badge
TripAdvisor Travelers Choice Award

The Best Western Monticello Gateway Inn lies at the focal point of unique Monticello and Piatt counties, on Interstate 72 in the central Illinois community. This prairie community proudly displays sites and events continuously through the year, with a special emphasis on the 2,000 acres of native plains and upland forest that make up beautiful Allerton Park, a Registered Natural Landmark. The new hotel is 15 minutes from University of Illinois sports, arts and conference events.
