Sanjeev, the concierge was very helpful. He helped me find a room at 2am in the morning. He was very kind and patient with me. During our stay he made us tea (indian chai)
Personally we weren't impressed with this location of Monte Carlo as the curtains didnt close and also there was a pair of dirty socks in the room but we were impressed with Sanjeev's hospitality and his willingness to help us.
So honestly, I've been here three days. If you book through a trip site it's cheap. Don't pay desk rate. Not worth the 100+$. But a good stay from 50-60$. Didn't see drugs, hoes or bullet holes.
Front desk people were of all different ethnicities. All well spoken. My room has a god damn fireplace and walk in shower... For like 60$. Team mates room is smaller and doesn't have the same and is paying the same... But forget him really. I've had a splendid time. The covid no gym no pool thing is getting old... And the channels on t.v. sucks but, I donno entertain yourself... If you came to Barrie let's be honest, you ain't here for vacation.
stayed on New yrs eve . Very expensivve for a tiny tiny Room 412 . King bed takes up most of the room . Furniture was old . room was clean .Room sloaps a little . Bathroom is big but strange window placement with just sheer curtain was stuck with the bathroom counter going into it which was very cold and alarming if you were having a shower . Batht tub was very stiff trying to get shower to work and bathroom smelt very musty like someone was using old mops to wash the foor .
it was a quiet hotel . But not worth the money we paid talk about putting prices up for new yrs !!
The rooms are decent size and very clean other than odor. We stayed 2 separate nights. The first night the room smelled like someone had just smoke in the room, the night manager wasn't surprised leading me to believe the non-smoking policy is not at all enforced. They sent a housekeeper with a deodorizing machine . The house keeper kept saying it wasn't her who smoked despite me never asking or accusing her. The internet was extremely slow and the staff said they would inform management. The following stay was 1 week later. The next room also had a odor but it wasn't as bad, more of a musty smell. The internet was totally on the fritz with the hot spot disappearing for 5-10 minutes at a time and when it was there extremely slow. I called the front desk and they reset the modem but it didn't help. It is too bad as the rooms were decent but there is no excuse for bad internet and rooms with odor.
The hotel is easy to find on a bigger street.
The parking is free (but somewhat limited).
The staff courteously answered all questions asked, but weren't demonstrably welcoming (which doesn't matter to me, but might matter to some guests).
The free breakfast was sparse; the better items ran out quickly (and were not replaced in a timely manner).
The room was a little cramped (even with only 1 regularly sized bed), but appeared reasonably clean.
Both of the lamps had on-off switches that were so damaged that they were practically useless.
The bathroom was (barely) big enough not to be cramped.
The business center had 1 computer placed high enough that standing is required (which didn't bother me, but might bother other guests).
The rates were far less than those hotels in downtown Toronto, but didn't appear to be a bargain (admittedly, this is my only overnight stay in the area for nearly 20 years).
The hotel is about 2 miles from the farthest Metro stop on the Bloor line.
All in all, a no frills 2-star hotel (with closer to 3-star rates).
