“Perfectly fine budget hotel”
Reviewed 30 May 2012

Other reviewers made this sound like a horrible, horrible place and I disagree. It's a fine place to stay if you are on a budget. The manager said she has been there for only a few months and previous managers were non-english speakers who had their 12 year old son in charge sometimes - I can see how that would make guests feel they were not getting good treatment.
Rooms do smell of smoke. Carpets, drapes and bedding is not by any means brand new or fancy. That said, I felt safe in my room, I slept well, the manager welcomed my dog with open arms, the location is good for walking the dog, it's out of the center of town, it's inexpensive - for me it was an ideal one night stop on the way from here to there.

I stayed here for 3 nights with a co-worker and we were very satisfied with our room. Wi-fi speed was great, room was clean, the staff was super friendly and the room was very spacious. Overall it was a much more enjoyable stay than the last time I came to Cornwall.

Booked weekend getaway with my girlfriemd based on pictures provided by motel.l went into the front office only to be greeted by fruit flies and stale smoke.Got my key,went to the room across the street and l was horrified upon entry.l found filthy carpets,furniture that was old and unstable,holes in the wall and a smell of mold and smoke.l got a refund after the desk clerk complained.Not recommended for anyone.If your blind,have no sense of smell or no moral values,then the Monte Carlo is for you.

Room Tip: check before entering or even beginning to open your wallet

Reviewed 28 July 2011

We were too tired to drive any further safely, so we took a "non-smoking" room. It smelled strongly of cigarette smoke and was musty. While we were sleeping, the owner opened the door to show other guests around our room, thinking she had put us in another room. No apology. Not very clean - stains on floor, walls. Rates were cheap.

The Monte Carlo was good value for the price. The manager at the office was very friendly.

The room is very basic, with a double bed and small fridge, but no phone and no cell service (the manager let us use the phone in the office to make an important phone call which we appreciated). The bed was comfortable and the room was warm. The walls felt like they were paper thin and one of our neighbours must have fallen asleep with the TV turned on which we could hear all night.

The bathroom had a new bathtub insert which we appreciated as it help lift this tired old hotel. The water pressure in the shower was low but there was adequate hot water.

Not the Ritz, but comfortable enough if you are looking for a clean comfortable room on a budget.

K so like my title says it is extremley cheap but it's run down. My boyfriend and I stayed there with another couple. Our room worked out to be $60.50 that was for a room with one double bed. My friend and her boyfriend stayed in a room with two double beds and a kitchenette for $70 something dollars.
This hotel was recommended from a friend that lives in Cornwall.
We were attending a wedding at a golf coarse just down the road from Monte Carlo so for us it was a very convenient location. In the end we chalked it up as one night and we didnt spend much time in our rooms anyways. It is a VERY basic room so ladies bring your blow dryers:)
The people working there were very friendly and helpful and the scenery is amazing. It is overlooking the St. Lawrence river.

Don't expect a lot and if it's cheap you want, you got it at the Monte Carlo.

  • Liked — It was cheap
  • Disliked — It was run down and needs some updates
