Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Monte Carlo Ocean City
I'm in the Army
I recently stayed at the Hotel Monte Carlo, the begining of March. I had reservations before seeing the No Concern for military personal review. I got very nervous but i was in the cancellation period. When i got there i thought it was very nice. The lobby was a little plain but the staff was very polite and very helpful with all of my questions. We recieved a 20% discount b/c i am in the Army, which is more than anywhere else would offer. On the morning of check out we were running a little late so the desk staff/manager allowed us to check out a little late. That was greatly appericated. WE WILL BE STAYING THERE AGAIN. i think it has great location and friendly staff. I dont think that they had "no concern for military personal" they were nicer than anyother hotel i stayed at in ocean city. Thanks Hotel Monte Carlo. See ya again SOON!!!
I won't be going back.
I can honestly say this is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. My wife and I went to OC for a week in May of 2002. From the time we checked in until the time we left (early) we had problems with the room and the staff.
When we arrived we were suprised how nice the hotel looked from the outside. But once we got into the lobby, which is smaller than some rooms I've stayed in, we noticed that this hotel was not up to our expectations. Check-in went smoothly, but once we got into our room we noticed that the toilet wouldn't flush. We went back to the front desk to tell them about the problem and also informed them that we were going out for the rest of the afternoon so someone could fix the toilet anytime in the next 3-4 hours. We got back to our room, guess what, NO ONE had been there yet. I called the front desk again, told them about the problem, they said someone would be right up, waited another hour. We decided to go out for the evening so I told the staff in the lobby that I would be back by 10 or 11. It took about 7 hours but the toilet was finally fixed.
Next problem, we requested a non-smoking room but they gave us a smoking room. Not a serious problem, but still a little annoying.
Finally, the last and most unappealing aspect of this hotel was that everytime we left or entered the building several of the staff members were standing in the doorway smoking. I don't mind people who smoke, but when I have to ask 2 and 3 people to move out of my way so I can go into the building, then have to walk through a smoke screen to get in I get a little upset. We had enough and decided to shorten our stay and left early. I asked to speak to the manager several times, he/she was never available. The Monte Carlo left a bad taste in our mouths and I think we unfairly blamed Ocean City. We haven't been back to OC since this trip, going to Myrtle Beach instead. But I think it is time to give OC another chance. I will not be going back to the Monte Carlo this time, or ever.
Hotel with no concern to military personal
A reservation was made to stay at the hotel for valentines day weekend 2005, but needed to be cancelled 48 hours prior to arrival and not 14 DAYS IN ADVANCE, because of military duties. When a request was made to have the fee of one nights stay be waved the manager on duty refused and preceeded to say that it was "his decision to join the Air Force not ours and we will not wave the fee, we are a family run hotel and can't afford it make acceptions.
I hope this hotel never needs anything that would involve military assistance and I would encourage all servicemen and women to avoid supporting establishments that have that type of mentality. It is a sad day when a we put the almight dollar ahead of military personal and their willingness to serve that business and our country. To add to the insult she was rude. Thanks Tracy for helping members of the military we appreciate it.
Please if you have family members, or if you yourself have served in the armed forces, please avoid staying and supporting places with this type of attitude.
we stayed at hotel monte carlo October 29th for two nights. We had a oceanview room on the 5th floor. I have to say that this is my first time to ocean city with my family and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooftop pool was closed but the rooftop sundeck was open. it was a great view. you could see all of downtown ocean city and even see assateaque in the distance. My kids really enjoyed the indoor pool. The kids also liked that the playground and boardwalk were very near by. As for the room itself, it was a nice hotel room. its not the ritz carlton but a very nice hotel. I have already booked my room there for July 4th weekend next year. We really are looking forward to Ocean City being our new vacation spot, and definitely looking to taking a dip in that rooftop pool.
It was just okay
My husband and I visited the Monte Carlo the last weekend of October. The room was okay (we had a hottub in the room which was nice). It wasn't dirty, but it definitely wasn't the cleanest room I've ever stayed in. The bed was horrible. I can't remember ever trying to sleep in a more uncomfortable bed. The walls seemed to be really thin too. Every time somebody below us, above us, or in the same hall as us went in and out of their room, the door slam reverberated through our room. The best part was when we had to listen to somebody above us being sick at 2 am. We finally turned on the air, even though we were comfortable, just to try to block out some of the noise. The room was very plain too. Not a single picture on the wall. The cable was pretty good. They have all the usual channels plus HBO and Showtime. The location was great, a block from the boardwalk (right past the Ocean Gallery). The indoor pool was pretty funny. It's tiny and has a lovely view of the parking lot and the back of a building. Even though it had some good qualities, I will never go back to the Hotel Monte Carlo.
Fabulous monte carlo
we stayed at the hotel monte carlo on bike weekend as well. I have to say that i was very impressed with this hotel. the staff was very friendly and helpful. we had a jacuzzi room with a side view of the ocean. the rooftop pool are was absoulutely fabulous. we lounged by the pool by day and relaxed in the spa at night. it was very conveinant for us since it is right off of the boardwalk. we have stayed at the park place hotel in the past and didnt enjoy it at all. i would recommend the monte carlo to all , and i thought the pools were very nice. has for parking they do offer across street parking but its not very far at all. on your next vacation i would definitely stay there. hope to see ya there
Hated the monte carlo
We didnt like the hotel at all!!! We were there on sept 10th & 11th . I seen that it was built in 2000 so I thought it would be a nice clean room.It wasnt there was mold on the ceiling were we slept and in the bathroom also.The toilet didnt work either, we had to get a maintanence man to come in and fix it the first night we were there. The next night it broke again we called the desk and were told he was off. one the the young desk clerks had to come up and fix the toilet two more times that day.It was also bikers weekend and all hotels were booked so we could not leave . Nobody ever apoligized to us or anything. I will never stay there again.
I'd go back again
My husband and I stayed at Hotel Monte Carlo for four days and for the most part our stay was very pleasant. The hotel was very clean and modern. It was very close to the beach and boardwalk, which is always important to me. We had no problems with the staff. They were all friendly and helpful. Although our room was not oceanfront, we did have a partial oceanview from our balcony. Also there is a beautiful oceanfront view from the pool on the roof. The only things I wasn't crazy about was the parking and the cleanliness of the pools. The parking was located across the street in two tiny lots. The spaces were very small and tight. One lot was directly across the street, but the other one was a little further down making it imposiible to see your car from anywhere within the hotel. They do allow you to load and unload your car in fronf of the building, however, so you don't have to lug all your bags across the busy street. There were two pools, one indoor on the first level, and one outdoor on the roof. The hotel had signs posted for everyone to shower before entering the pools, however there was still sand in the pools everyday. I do know that they did vacuum the pools everyday because I saw them doing it at night, however they needed some maintenance during the day also. Overall, it was a good time. I'd recommend it!
