My husband and I are in our early 30s. We stayed at the Monte Carlo from September 9-12 2007. Reviews I read prior to going implied that it is a boring place and not fancy or comfortable enough. This was one of the nicest rooms I have stayed in, especially for the price (about $60 per night - cheaper than the airport hotel we stayed in the night before we left!). The hotel/casino itself was lovely and in a convenient location. We booked a special through the hotel’s website, then found an even better special on their website 2 days before leaving and re-booked at a better price, saving about $200 by calling the hotel.
We arrived at 11am on a Sunday and there was a pretty big line to check in. We checked in and got our room but they said it would not be ready until between 3-5pm. No problem – we left our bags at the bell desk and used the free buffet coupons that came with our room deal for the Champagne brunch. All you can drink champagne along with the brunch buffet with breakfast, carving station, hot foods, crab legs and shrimp. This is the only buffet we went to in Vegas, but it was definitely good, especially for free!
Once we checked into our room it was very nice. King non smoking on the 21st floor at the very end of the hall. We had asked for a view if possible. The only view we had was of the MGM Grand and a little of NYNY but it was ok. The only time I heard construction noise was when I woke up at 4:30am I could hear beeping like a truck reversing. It wouldn’t have woken me up, I just happened to wake up at what would be my normal time back home. A light sleeper might be bothered though. But we were up between 7 and 9am every day and never heard anything else.
The pool was really nice. There is an area in full shade which is great for relaxing, but the water stays pretty cold. The wave pool wasn’t working so we didn’t use it until the last day. It is in full sun and much warmer. Too bad there were no waves though. The Lazy River was also fun, even without a tube. We did not hear any construction noise at the pool, which was something I had been worried about, but the view was of construction cranes overhead.
Food options at the hotel were very convenient. We ate at the buffet, the brew pub (great service at the bar both times, great sliders!), and used the food court for breakfast at McDonalds and some lunches and late-night snacks. The line-up at Starbucks was crazy in the morning. We liked the Mexican place in the food court. It is nothing special but way better than anything we get in Canada. There is a big new margarita bar and Mexican restaurant opening soon attached to the Monte Carlo, but it was unfortunately not open when we were there.
The only problem we had was trying to walk out of the hotel to the North. All the construction has closed off all the North exits so we had to exit on the south side and walk on the street towards Bellagio. The street is not very nice with the construction happening but it wasn’t too bad. It just seemed a lot farther when it was so hot out.
We had a great time at this hotel. Maybe people who complain are used to staying in suites at the bigger properties but we liked our room, had great service from everyone we dealt with and would definitely stay here again.
