“If you're looking for a clean cozy room... Don't stay here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

To friends and family it's no secret that I'm a "hotel snob". I will read review after review before choosing a hotel for any of my trips. After reading mixed reviews on this hotel I decided to just go ahead and give it a shot for my weekend getaway because the $60/ night price tag was too good to pass up. Well you get what you pay for. Upon first impression of the casino it seemed very hip and totally renovated from the old Caesar's days. The rooms were anything but hip and renovated. We checked into a non smoking room and after opening the door we were immediately hit with the stench of old cigarettes, stepping into the room the dated decor, old dirty carpet and peeling wallpaper explained the smell, these rooms have obviously not been renovated or deep cleaned for some time. The upgrade to a jacuzzi tub sounded like a nice touch but one look at the hairs, dirt and water puddles left over from the previous occupant quickly made me regret this decision. The final straw was the discovery of a considerable amount of black mold behind the bathroom door from an apparent leak. Front desk was very understanding and moved us to another room, however that room was just as bad if not worse than the first. We checked out less than an hour after arriving an received a refund. If you are a 20 something looking for a cheap place to sleep while your not on the slopes than this hotel would be perfect. If you are looking for a relaxing weekend getaway like we were, spend a little more money and stay somewhere else!

I booked a room here for two of our guys who were doing some construction work. The bathroom had no door and the shower while very large, had see through doors (no shower curtain). Needless to say, I can't book here again. Otherwise, they said they had a nice stay.

The location is great.

We have stayed here numerous times over the years. It usually is worth the discount price. However, after this last trip, we will be paying more and staying somewhere else. The first night, the hotel hosted a rave type concert. Not sure what they were thinking, were they surprised by the damage caused by this crowd? We were moved to the top floor. The room was quiet, but the air conditioner was broken. The next day we were moved to our third room. The staff tried pretty hard to help us out.

The huge indoor pool and spa is always fun.

We tried to eat at Ciera Chop house but they were booked with a large party. Our previous meal there was fantastic. We ate at the buffet. It was good.

Fortunately, the skiing was really fun.

Room Tip: choose a room away from the elevators. try to get a lake view.

First let me say that I am a travel agent. I know a bad place, from a good place, to an outstanding place. Montbleu was a good place. Let me start with the PROS…. The staff. They were very helpful and friendly. Upon check-in we were given a free upgrade to a whirlpool room. We did have an issue with a baby crying in the neighboring room and they moved us immediately (phew!). The rooms were huge and the bathrooms even bigger (Loved the double sinks and vanity). Also, we had reserved an extra room one night for a family member who was coming for a short visit. Our dear sweet uncle unwittingly came a day early and we had to cancel his room. They didn’t charge us a cancellation fee and were very accommodating. The casino. The table limits were low. The slots were loose. The drinks were stiff. Nuff said. The Spa. I had a facial and it was wonderful. They even gave a 10% discount for being a hotel guest. It was unexpected and great! The location. It was in a great spot. Close to everything… I was really glad for the CVS right next door.
The CONS. The cigarette smell. Its strong. My boyfriend had a sinus issue for weeks after we came back. The ventilation is not good. And I suspect this is because its an old hotel. Cleanliness. The bartendeners didn’t keep a very clean bar. Sticky, and loose ashes. Not a huge deal, if they were busy, but they weren’t. The rooms were tidy – but a little outdated. I think the carpet/upholstery could stand to be replaced. But I never saw any gross/unidentifiable stains.

I’m always looking for a deal, and I think this place is a deal. If they stay competitive with their prices, I’ll definitely stay here again.

This was our third time staying here and probably our last. The quality has gone down since our first visit a few years back. On that trip everything was great. The rooms were clean, beds were comfy, etc...It’s been a slow deterioration. On this trip the room had a very odd smell (not the usual stuff associated with the smoke from the casino area), the bathroom had wall paper which was coming off the walls and black spots coming in, there was a rough patch job in the entry way, the beds were uncomfortable which made getting a good nights sleep kind of rough. Unfortunately I don’t have much positive to say about our stay on this trip. Last time around we had a bad time at the Café Del Soul restaurant so didn’t even eat there this go around. I do like the fact they have a starbucks in the lobby area…there…always ending on a positive note!

Do not stay here or even visit, as we did to use their Pool! The unfriendly staff at the Spa & Pool refused access to the Pool today as one of its employees named Gilbert made new Rules that no Visitors were allowed, even though clearly signs said they were! He violated the Hotel's policy on access to the Pool and then called Security to back him up, as you would expect from an unhappy disgrunted employee! He acted like a person in the wrong place or as someone from Temp Services! Why the Hotel would entrust their reputation to such an untrained and unfriendly employee is beyond comprehension!!! I recommend noone visit or stay at this place if they can avoid it at all, as Security is actually running and making their own Rules for Casino Facilities! Many changes are needed to their Staffing or Management!
