My husband, teenager and I recently vacationed for three weeks in the US (we are Canadians). We arrived in LA, stayed in Anaheim, Palm Springs and then in Vegas for the final 10 days of our vacation. This was our third visit to Vegas and each time we've stayed in different hotels. This trip we stayed at the Monte Carlo because of the three pool areas, especially the lazy river. The lazy river was what we expected but that was the only fun thing about the Monte Carlo.
We arrived in our room with a view looking through windows that had not been cleaned in years. The view was overlooking an awful construction area. Not pleasant. The Monte Carlo must be a very old hotel that has never been renovated. The room we were first assigned had large chunks of wood missing from the furniture, dark stains all over the carpet, very old-style tv, and the comforters on the beds looked like they were put there in 1980, washed from time-to-time but still old. It looked like someone urined on the desk chair. The bathroom had the same overall feeling. My thought is that when you walk into a hotel room you should never feel like a million people stayed there. But that is exactly how it was. The hotel moved us twice and the third time the room was better than the first two but not by much. We had prepaid for our room for ten nights and the hotel would not give us a full refund so we stayed there. We had prepaid months before arrival and received the summer special with a buffet 2 for 1. Don't bother going to the buffet. It is terrible - nothing but pig slop. For the Monte Carlo We paid $79 some nights and during the weekend we paid $189 per night so the hotel was not cheap.
As mentioned, we were in California and Vegas all total three weeks. We stayed at a Howard Johnson in Anaheim, a Holiday Inn in Palm Springs and those hotels were great. My advice to anyone is do not stay at the Monte Carlo. I won't be staying there ever again or when I return in October! I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT!
