we booked monoco for 2 nights for a small get away with our 5 young children. I read all the reviews and realized although it was outdated, it would be a great deal for the free mt olympus tickets.we usually don't listen to negative reviews much because there are so many people that nitpick the smallest things and sometimes have a higher standard than maybe we would. we arrived at the motel and were politely greeted by the owners at the front desk. i requested to check in early and they said we could not because the room was not clean but we could get our tickets to the park and come back in the afternoon to check in.they had us pay for the 2 nights in full before we got our room, which i thought was odd but i did it. then they made each person come in to the front desk to put wristbands on everyone.we left to the waterpark and later arrived back at the hotel to check in.they gave us our keys and told us our room was above the office. we got the 3 bed suite, room 202.when we opened the door we all noticed a horrible smell, like sewage. i immediately went back to the front desk and told them. they said they would bring up a machine to remove odors and they did. after that my son went into the bathroom and there was #2 in the toilet NOT FROM US!! so immediately we knew they either didnt clean or clean very well. we tried to let that go and make the most of it. that was difficult.my 2 babies had horribly dirty knees from crawling on the carpet, it was so disgusting. there was food left in the mini fridge, there was some kind of dried up liquid on the picture above the bed, there was dried vomit on the box spring, the sheets didnt fit the bed (they were twin sheets on a queen bed) we found a bloody tooth in a baggy in the night stand next to the bed. it was definitely very outdated also. after the 1st night when we noticed everything i went down and requested nicely to get my money back for the 2nd night and that i wanted to cancel. they said absolutely no refunds.we took pictures of everything we found wrong with the room and i told the owner if she didnt give me my money back i would take the pictures to the better business bureau and report her.she finally agreed to give me back my money so there werent any problems. we were so glad to get out of there. it was the most disgusting place i have ever stayed. i will NEVER go there again and i recommend not booking this hotel. yes, it was located in the middle of everything and the mt olympus tickets were a great deal but NOT worth it!!i am also a business owner so i would never write a bad review unless it is absolutely deserving.
***they also said there was free internet. you had to get the password from the front desk. it did not work most of the time and when it did it was very slow.
