“Almost Beach Front”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I would return here again.. The rooms are clean and sufficient, the staff is friendly and the location and value are outstanding. This property is only about 100 yards from the most popular part of the Ocean City center.......the Beach and Arcade / Boardwalk . Off Season Rates are great . Decent Towels and bathroom...mattress is a bit springy ...
(The Continental Breakfast is comparable to a vending machine)

Room Tip: Beach veiw on side is nicer.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We have stayed here multiple years. Best thing is the good price and great location, right off the boardwalk and short walk to arcade and carnival for the kids. Subway restaurant off the lobby is a big plus. Rooftop pool is big, but always seems to be cold. Hot tub is nice, as is the small indoor heated pool. Our room is always clean, although the hotel itself could use some sprucing up (carpets, wall paint, etc). Parking is available, although a couple blocks walk and very tight spaces (although this seems to be the norm for OC boardwalk area). Staff is always friendly. Lobby is very small and usually crowed during check-in/out times making it difficult to walk thru during those times. Elevator is slow and small (holds 4 with luggage, max) and quicker to take the stairs. Although they advertise free wifi, but we can never pick up a strong enough signal in our room (regardless of which floor we are on), and we only get friendly excuses from the staff ("we'll be sure to check") when we complain about the wifi. Small inconvenience since so many other places in the area offer it. Overall, a decent place and we would stay here again.

Based on reviews from TripAdvisor, I chose this hotel for myself and three friends. We attended the Maryland State Teacher's convention. The location of this hotel was excellent. We were less than a block from the board walk and many places to eat. We had two rooms, one was a double and the other one was a double with the sofa bed. I don't usually like sleeping on sofa beds but this one wasn't too bad. I loved the view of the ocean. I would highly recommend this hotel for it cleanliness, the location and the service.

Room Tip: Get a room with the ocean view from the balcony.

The hotel employees and managers will cheat you out of your money with your security deposits. The customer service is terrible and the hotel is not worth your money. Save your time and money, and find a different hotel to stay at.

The Hotel in no way or form keeps security deposit with out good cause. In this situation it was underaged students who decided to damage hotel property. The guest were asked to leave hotel when upon the damaged was discovered.

Went to ocean city for a last minute trip. Wanted a place up close to the boardwalk. Checkin was very fast and friendly.
Parking was just across the street, close and easy to get to.
Room was clean and nice size, only negative was the bathroom was very small.
Roof top pool area is very nice, indoor pool is very small.
Elevator is very slow, so just use the stairs.
Location is great, just behind board walk and easy walk to everything.

Overall was very impressed with the room and the complex, all the staff was super nice.

I will stay again.

Recently wrapped up a week long trip to OCMD & stayed at the Hotel Monte Carlo. Property fairly modern. All room furniture was from what I understand updated in 2012. Flat Screen TV w/ DVD Player. Beds were comfortable. Carpets were sand free. Outdoor furniture on balcony was clean. Met the maintance guy in the hallway & he did a check on my room to make sure everything was working properly, even installed updated clothing hangers in my room. Staff seems to take pride in the hotel property.

Hotel lobby did have that "Subway" Odor, but the smell of fresh bread isn't the worst thing in the world is it? The Subway Rest is attached to the hotel lobby, but still requires you to walk outside & around the front to enter the sandwich shop. Parking was very tight, advised to fold up you're mirrors when leaving you're car in the lot. Perhaps a Exterior Light can be installed to light up the parking area at night ...

Location is great, right down the street from the boardwalk. Only con - we were there for the begining of bike week, was a little loud to say the least when sleeping in the room with all the motorcycles. Would recommend to family & friends.
