This was our first trip to OC, MD so I can't compare the Monte Carlo to other hotels in the area. I can say that all of the employees were very polite and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. All appliances and the air conditioner in the room worked well. The rooftop pool area had a great view, and the shallow pool (about 3 ft) was good for my younger kids... no deep end to worry about. The location was close to the "busy" end of the boardwalk with all of the arcades, another plus for the kids. We could see the ocean to the side from our balcony.
The downsides were: very tight parking for an SUV, we walked from the lot across the street. The indoor pool room was extremely hot (I guess this may be OK if you're swimming, but it was hard to breathe just watching the kids from the bench so we didn't stay long) and the cardio-room/gym was also so hot it was not really usable. We had to wrestle quite a bit with the "key card" to get into our room until we got the hang of how the locks worked. I think this motel was good for the price and we would consider staying here again.More
