I frequently stay in the Mississauga area (I have a major client there) and have stayed at many of the local hotels. Decided to try the Monte Carlo (despite its somewhat ridiculous exterior - turret-like facade, bright yellow signage with stylized crown).
For a mid-level hotel price, you get a mid-level hotel. Unfortunately the lobby was under renovation (neatly screened off, but much diminished in size during the work). However the service is friendly and the rooms (I did not have a 'suite') are up-to-date and spotlessly clean.
