What a crappy place to stay! The service was TERRIBLE. Have you ever been made to feel that even though you are spending tons of money to stay someplace, that the hotel is somehow doing *you* some sort of favour by "letting" you stay there? Where do I begin? The luggage cart has a flat tire. The elevator does not line up with the floor by several inches so when you step in or out, you trip. The front desk guy and his wife [from India] were EXTREMELY unfriendly. The only instructions for the TV are taped on a piece of paper to the front desk. There are no instructions in the room, where you need them. So when I asked the guy to come in and show me how to operate the TV, it was like he was doing me some huge service! I checked in late, and his wife hollered through the office door, "Don't bother us after 10pm. We need our sleep." The door to my room - 311 - literally required kicking to open and to close! Honest! I am not kidding! The room is ok, I suppose. They claim to serve a continental breakfast from 6:30 to 9:30. I arrived at 9:20am to find absolutely NOTHING. In fact, the coffee pot didn't appear as if it had even been filled, nor were there any crumbs or any sign that there had been any food or drink there whatsoever! I verily believe I am the only [dummy] who is actually staying in this place, and there must be 50 or more rooms! What was even more vexing was that he told me, "Don't make a mess of the room." I'm 54 years old and a professional engineer fer cryin' out loud! I should have stayed at the nice place across the street. Oh well, live and learn, eh? And in case I didn't mention it, Don't stay at the Monarch!!
