Monte Carlo Resort & Casino
- What's Included
On a road trip from Las Vegas through the West, our first stop was Las Vegas where we spent one night at the Monte Carlo hotel. It had a lot of typical amenities, including gambling slot machines and tables throughout.The room was very clean and comfortable, but it wasn't as clear as it could have been about checking in using their kiosk near the check-in desk. Instead of standing in line to check in. Anyway, we got past that.It's location is good, but not the best. The entrance is confusing. It doesn't face the strip and you have to do a lot of walking to get there. It took as a while to discover that you could navigate through the hotel and a nearby theater area to get to the strip without walking the long distance around the hotel.Our room wasn't cheap, so we were disappointed that the window opened to the construction renovations, which started early in the morning and continued late into the evening. It wasn't a very comfortable sleep.The total cost for the one night was $180, plus we had to pay for parking, around $10. No free breakfast, but their buffet cost $41 for two people, which wasn't bad.Of course, anywhere you stay near the strip will be fun. The Las Vegas strip is a real experience you should not miss.
This hotel has been our main hotel for the 3 of 4 times we have visited Vegas in the last 11 years. The last time we stayed here was in 2015 and only 2 years later, a lot has changed. I give the hotel credit that they are doing renovations, especially because I'm sure there prices will increase since the arena is right next door. We did not upgrade and stayed on the 27th floor, the room was OK but definitely needs major updating; however, you pay for what you get. Management, PLEASE upgrade your towels, they are terrible. Liz at the front desk went out of her way to help us with check-in and was very nice and helpful, thank you, Liz! Terry at the convenience shop also went out of her way more than once to help us! Thank you, Terry!We did miss out on the information about the pool not being open during renovations, but thankfully we called before we went down and found you could use the pool at MGM & Mandalay bay; however it was sort of a pain to walk there in a bathing suit rather than just down stairs.We definitely will come back and stay here after the renovations are completed!
Okay I've been to Vegas a bunch of times and I've stayed all over the strip but this visit was a little different. We stayed here just to be close to the Cher show and when they asked if we wanted to pay more every night for an upgrade to the renovated side I decided to be a good Vegas vacationer and spend that upgrade money on gambling instead! I have my priorities! So we get up there and it is obvious they haven't given a crap about the 13th floor in really long time. Why would they? It's getting renovated for gosh sakes. And yes it was the 13th floor - I didn't even think they made those anymore! So as I expected there were stains on the carpet, mismatched fixtures, holes in the wall, a drunk guy trying to come into our room at 2am - you know - classic Vegas. So the hubster and I were discussing this the next day when I realized something - the bed was really comfortable, the room was dark, the AC stayed on all night without clicking on and off, the toilet flushed like it had a hemi and the shower had enough water pressure to remove my epidermis! It actually meet all of my hotel needs even though the room looked like a no-tell motel on the inside. My folks were right next door and their room met all those needs too. It was noisy starting at 6am due to construction but if you bring some earplugs or just get drunk and pass out who cares? It is within walking distance to a lot of great casinos and I look forward to seeing the renovations next year. For now I am really glad I didn't upgrade. Seriously - I've stayed at the Belagio and had a toilet that barely flushed and an AC that clicked off and on this wasn't that bad. I just wanted to tell you the cheap room wasn't that bad if you have ear plugs and some really good beer goggles! 😜😊
Monte Carlo was once my go to in Vegas, but once they started charging for parking, I found other options. Earlier this week I needed a Vegas hotel and decided to give Monte Carlo one more chance... Never again though.I understand the idea behind having a resort fee, kind of. The fee is supposed to cover the extra features for your stay (why not just include them in the hotel fee? that's another problem for another day, as I know all Vegas hotels have resort fees). The Monte Carlo resort fee has me scratching my head though. My biggest problem is that the resort fee was supposed to give access to high speed wifi. Having stayed in hotels many times before, I have gained access to their wifi by entering either my name or room number or a combination of both to join the wifi that I paid for. This login screen is supposed to come up once you click "join network." I never did find it. I tried on multiple devices and nothing I tried allowed me to login to the high speed wifi that is included in the resort fee. I called the guest service line and was told that it is supposed to automatically pop up to log in. Yes, I am aware of that. I'm calling to get your help because it is not doing that on any of my devices. Her response "oh shut your device off and try again, it is supposed to pop up to log in to the wifi." Went back and forth and every time this was her response. Not very helpful at all and I could tell she just thought I was stupid and didn't know how to use technology.Additionally, there is no onsite pool to use at this hotel. So why advertise it as something you get for paying the resort fee? True they allow you to use pools at other hotels, but that is very inconvenient and ridiculous that you have to pay a fee to walk or shuttle to use a pool at another location.Also the construction does start almost before the sun is up. If you stay here, be prepared to be awoken before you are ready. I do not gamble, and so using wifi and having a nearby pool were things that I was planning on in order to make my stay worth the cost. Unacceptable that they charge this fee (and parking fee!) as a way to steal more money from people and then give them near nothing in return.
We were lucky enough to stay on the newly renovated 23rd floor in a new Stay Well Suite. Terrific Amenities. Great mattress and very comfortable. We got to Enjoy Cher's show and had fun gambling as well. Service was good everywhere. Note, the pool is closed...but you can go to other MGM resorts and enjoy theirs.
