    Hi, I've e-mailed the hotel but haven't received an answer yet so I thought I would ask the experts on here. I'll be at the Monte Carlo in a few days and am wondering if anyone who has stayed there recently can tell me if the rooms have coffee makers in them??

    I haven't been there since last Fall, but my room had a Keurig in it.

    Back in December my room had a keurig, but I had read somewhere recently that that had removed them....you could just give them a call and inquire unless you are out of the country and run the risk of getting put on hold for a while.

    Mine had one back in early Feb, but like above, I read they had removed them from the rooms recently.

    In the Monaco Suite there was one, but that was last October. So not sure about now. Will be back in June this year.

    That sucks that they would remove them. I moved from Mirage (that did not have coffee makers) and was surprised that MC did have them.

    Personally I think every room should have them. I'll even bring my own k-cups. :)

    we did that (brought our ouwn k-cups) 2 years ago at MC and even brought instant oatmeal and made it with the hot water from the Keurig (no k-cup in the little holder)...saved on breakfast, of which we dont eat a big one anyway...

    would love to confirm they still have them before I get BOGO buffets for Aria from MyVegas...I wil spend my points on something else!

    On a side note, the lack of complimentary coffee for the coffee makers at Mandalay Bay really puzzles me. It is extremely common to have that amenity at even the worst hotel rooms in the midwest. In January Mandalay had no coffee maker and TheHotel in April had only a Keurig with K cups available at $4 a pop.

    Really not that big of a deal to me as I like to gamble in the morning anyway and they are happy to comp me coffee at the blackjack table, but it is a little weird not to be able to wake up and have coffee right away.

    Out of curiousity does the CVS at Monte Carlo sell K-Cups?

    I don't know about CVS, but I'm sure I saw them at a Walgreens. Either the one by PHo or Venetian.

    I'm actually thinking about getting one of those smallest Keurigs to travel with. I need a coffee before encountering people. :) I'm also on a big smoothie kick and wondered if traveling with my magic bullet would be crazy or not. (I drive, so luggage weight limits don't apply)

    Yes, but, so what:evillaugh Seriously, many things I do are considered crazy by others, but if I'm happy and not hurting anyone else, so what?

    Coffee maker & coffee is one thing - but a smoothie? That requires more ingredients, and a fridge to keep those ingredients cold, so that might not be as easy in Vegas. Depends on where you stay. We did actually get a small travel coffee maker (not a k-cup - none were small enough for our travel preferences) and for long trips/where we know there won't be coffee makers in the room (such as our last stay in a Petite Suite at TI) we brought it. We have free checked luggage on Delta, so it's definitely cheaper to bring it with us than to buy it. And I personally have to drink coffee before I eat breakfast - I can't drink coffee with my breakfast or after breakfast - I want the coffee after I shower, when I'm drying my hair etc.

    This is terribly, OT. I hope Sonya doesn't get upset. :haha: I saw this cooler for the car that had a car cigarette lighter adapter and also plugged into the wall socket. I WANT!!!!

    I have to travel with food as I have some crazy diet restrictions. It's usually easy to grab a bag of ice for the cooler every am and pm from the ice machine. Okay, next buffoonery celebration in Vegas, hangover smoothies in Sonya's room! :)

    We had one of those plug in mini fridge things and it doesn't stay very cold. Not really below 45 if I'm remembering. So just be aware/read the fine print of whatever you are thinking of buying:peace:

    With the price of a cup of coffee in excess of $3 they stand to make a fair bit of money by not supply coffee makers! LOL - they give free alcohol in the casinos but not a cup of make your own coffee included in the price of the room.

    Stayed at MC this week. The coffee maker in my room was a CV1 with Cafe Valet Estate Blend coffee packs.

    Yes, all the rooms have coffeemakers. They used to by Keurig and use the K-cups, but they switched those out in Feb - March for the Café Valet brewers with the coffee filter packs. Another boneheaded management decision.

    For those who do encounter Kerug machines, I've had good luck packing a bit of my own coffee and using these little filters.
    I keep a separate one for tea as well. Putting on tea bag in one of them makes a good cup of tea and I can have what I want from home and not be limited by K cups.

    MELITA FILTERS

    The Keurig did not seem to make sense anywhere, and seems to be pulled out in many places. At the D they charged $2.50 for each cup and that outraged some people and had others bring their own.

    I also bring along a little traveling coffee maker. It does a pretty good job if I run the water through once to heat it and then brew. There are some photos of it in this old coffee post

    We bought one of those plug in in the car coolers and not only did it not work very well at cooling, it killed our car battery. This was a pretty new car so it's not like the battery was dying anyway.
