Comfort Inn Monticello
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.
Comfort Inn Monticello
The Comfort Inn Monticello is a quiet hotel
conveniently located right off I64 nestled on a hill side. Our remarkable property offers some spectacular extras including welcome receptions upon request, convenient locations near all local attractions, friendly attentive staff; personalized attention to groups and individuals, and clean consistent rooms and facilities. We also feature a free hot breakfast, a 3000 square foot meeting facility which offers full service catering, and banquet planning services. We are SWAM certified members of eVA, ABA and members
of the local Chamber of Commerce.
We took into consideration the beliefs of Governor Kane, which has become the beliefs of Comfort Inn Monticello. We want to promote a safe and clean environment not only for our staff but our current and future clients.
