    Any nice hotels in Monticello area?

    Thinking of taking my fiancee on a romantic honeymoon up in the Catskills. How is the buffett at the racino? Edible? We both enjoy good food. Entertainment at the racino? We both love to dance. Do they have video poker? It's my favorite game. Had prety good luck in Pa. with video poker. Please, only serious replies welcomed. No rude comments. Thank you.

    • For all of the people who wrote negative answers, why do you live in Monticello, or go to the rasino. The racino is very clean, and a fun day out. However, I don't think I would want to spend my honeymoon there. If you can travel, Las Vegas is GREAT. The hotels are wonderful, you can gamble, and do some sightseeing. If you can't travel that far, how about one of the Indian casinos in CT.

    • You can try the Econo Lodge in Monticello; just bring a bat to keep away the rats.

    • ask 903 and 908

    • Honor's Haven Resort in ellenville... only 20 mins away...

      I've been there...inclusive, so buffet meals, indoor activities are included...

      I think they charge golf for $20...

      • If you've never been to Monticello or the Racino, don't start now. Sincerely, Monticello is a real dump as is most of the surrounding Towns. I see someone suggested the Raliegh Hotel, really a dump even though it's fairly close to the Racino.

        The Racino is like nothing you've ever seen. When you park your car you can'r help but notice all the crap in the lot closest to the road. It's junk that the Flea market people leave there to display their
        tent frames and display stuff.

        The parking lot is on suck a terrible slant you better remember to put your parking brake on. The Racino is the worst gambling estblishment I've ever been too. You will not believe this dump they call
        a Racino. Don't believe any hype. The whole area is like a waste land. Prostitutes and Drug dealers can be found on Broadway in Monticello. The village is about a mile or so from the Racino.

        My advice to you, especially since it's a special
        time for you and your new bride is to go some place
        else. Atantic City has so much more to offer. The boarwalk is special, not to mention the ocean. Plenty of nice (real) Casinos. I'm sure you've been there, so you know already.

        Try for a special deal to Vegas. Nothing like Vegas
        you must know that. If you can't do Atlantic City or Vegas, I'd vote for the Poconos. So much nicer for a place that's pretty close too.

        Just cross Monticello off your list. Believe me you will be very disappointed. I wish you and your bride the best and I hope you have a memorable time wherever you decide to go.

        I am very familiar with Monticello, so I know what I'm talking about. Don't ruin your Honeymoon with a bad choice of places to go.

        Happy dancing, and good luck with Video Poker. I love Video Poker too.

        Congratulations to you and yours....

    • Monticello itself is a dump. Try Kutshers - I haven't been in years, used to be great resort 845 434-7000 or Raleigh Hotel 845 794-6000

      If you've never been, go to West Point; Hampton Inn is nice or Thayer Hotel. This area is magnificent scenic beauty on the Hudson, and they give tours. Racino is about an hour away. good luck

    • I did der Mombo there in 1962. I lost my false teeth on the dance floor and me bride ran. She thought my CHOPPERS were real. Then my wig slipped. What a honeymoon

    • There's only a Super 8 and Econo lodge in Monticello; nothing else. I don't think they have a honeymoon suite. You might be better off camping out in a trailer park.

    • Try the Days Inn. Just be careful for possible bed bugs.
