Tropicana... great place to stay

Reviewed Jul 19, 2012
by (1 review) The Villages , United States Flag of United States

The Tropicana is a great place. Their casino floor is not as big as other places but everything is kept sparkling clean. Our room was huge with a nice bathroom. We also had free wifi. Only downside I could find was that it had only one chair in the room. Also, it is located at the northern end of the strip which is a bit farther away to some of the attractions. I would recommend this to anybody considering a stay in La Vegas.

Historical Traveler Reviews Tropicana Inn Las Vegas

Great location/had fun!

from

We stayed at the trop one night in January 05, spent an extra $30.00 to get a tower room, still very affordable. room wasnot new, but was very clean and had a refigerator. We had dinner at the Savanna Steakhouse because we were to tired to go anywhere else. We were both very pleasantly surprised because we enjoyed one of the best dining expirences ever. The French onion soop and specialty breads are wonderfull. Service was good, bartenders at the casino friendly. All in all we would stay here again, especially for the money.

Nothing wrong with the Trop,

from

My husband, an 11 year old, 14 year old and myself stayed at the Tropicanna in July for 4 nights. The rooms were clean, older but just fine, check in was fairly fast (we checked in @ 1:00am), and the staff were pleasant. The maid service would "tuck in" my daughters stuffy when the beds were made. The pools were wonderful. We will stay there again, for sure.

BEST PLACE TO STAY IN VEGAS

from

Go to Vegas 4 or 5 times a year, always stay at the Trop. the service staff there is the best in Vegas. Pool in the nicest in Vegas, also the casino has a great comp. progam.

Don't stay in the 'cheap seats'

from

We have been to Las Vegas several times, but Sept 2003 was the first at the Tropicana. What a terrible room! We were directed down stairs, and the room smelled, the bathroom was moldy. We immediately ask for another room (upgrade) and had to wait until the following day. It was much better, but I don't anticipate staying there again. There is however much to do in the hotel, all kinds of entertainment. So for the amount of time we spent in our room, overall it was do-able.

Ok Hotel...

from

I went to Las Vegas for a dance competition and it was great. Although the Tropicana didn't look really cool from the outside(like the Luxor did) or have a lot of shops and stuff(Like the Excalibur did), but it was nice. It had a fridge, which was good for saving things from restaurants. It also had a wonderful pool. The downside was when we got there, our room wasn't ready, so try to have yours ready!

Ok, not great

from

Me and a group of girl friends stayed at the Tropicana last March 2003.

It was ok for the money. . . pretty standard. We were in the "old" part, so maybe the "new" part was nicer. It was relatively close to the strip, but not directly on it. If you want to go to Vegas, but don't have a lot of money to spend, this is the hotel for you.

Tropicana

from

My 4 sisters and I stayed at the Tropicana in July for a Sister Reunion.It was GREAT.We won on the slots..nothing big,but we just piddle anyway.The rooms are very comfortable and the Hotel is very clean...Great food at the buffet also.I will go back on my next trip. Thanks

OK but might go elsewhere next time

from

Stayed at the Island Tower at the Tropicana for a 4 nite stay in June for economy reasons; needed 2 rooms for a family of 4 adults and the Trop seemed the best value for my budget after numerous hours comparison shopping on the internet! Arrived on a Sunday afternoon & check-in was horrible! Took me 90 minutes and after I finished the line was twice as long and almost extended out the front door. Problem was obvious: only 3 check-in staff were operating at any one time! Rest of my stay was OK- rooms in the Island tower were nice & quiet (maid service personnel were terrific!) but some distance from the main casino & front entrance. However, it was convenient to the nice pool and the rear entrance where we parked for our entire stay. Other than the pool & Comedy Club show, hotel amenities like economy eating, lounges, entertainment & general ambiance were disappointing compared to other hotels that we visited in the area. However, overall I think it was still a good value because the bottom line in Vegas is obvious: being guaranteed a nice experience and especially a nice room is still a crap shoot regardless of where you stay!

Great time

from

When we arrived the Service was great. The room was large, and clean. Not the fanciest room but very nice. We had a view of the pool and the strip. The swiming pool was great. I tried the swim up Black Jack and had a ball. Drinks were great also. We would stay here again!!!! Thanks so much Tropicana.

Great Value

from

This was my 5th time in Las Vegas and had never stayed at the Tropicana before. Although the rooms were nothing special, they were clean, spacious, had great views of the Strip and had a fridge. It has a great location as you can go over the road and catch the monorail in the MGM or Excalibur (both have connecting bridges). The staff were very friendly and helpful.The casino had a bar with free entertainment most of the time which gave it a great atmosphere. Probably the best feature of the hotel is its pool area & swim up Black Jack tables, the only complaint here was the number of cigarette ends on the floor. The comps were really good, the best I've ever had. If you do stop here make sure you get your comp card straight away as you get double rewards for the 1st day if you cash it in within 24 hours. We never paid for any meals we ate at the buffet as the comps bought them all. We got cash back on the last day and a very good discount on the room. All in all, we had a great time at the Tropicana and would certainly go back. It was not as plush as the Monte Carlo but it was a lot less money. It was much better than the Imperial Palace and, again, a lot cheaper.

First course was a slice of yellowtail tuna sashimi with ginger oil & pink Hawaiian sea salt and a tiny piece of ahi sushi wrapped around chopped vegetables, served with a tiny plate of fritto misto (fried) slivers of eggplant, zucchini, calamari, lemons & rock shrimp. Second course was a roasted Diver Scallop with maitake mushroom, baby corn & crispy pancetta, ...

... strip and we got some great shots. Finally we got round to checking out the casino! I'm a little obsessed with blackjack and won $20 but then lost it all trying to be clever. Slot machines are a tad boring though so I wouldn't do them again. We'd said we wanted to catch a show and at one of the half price booths they had Penn and Teller on at The Rio. I have always loved their shows and dad is a huge fan so we decided to head along. It was AMAZING!! A proper Vegas show. They ...

Left early this morning, heading to Grand Canyon.











On the way, we stopped at Hoover Dam.
What a massive place, which generates electricity for all of Las Vegas and its surrounds.




Its Jeff's turn to drive and Gail and I sat in the back and had a few beers.
Its hot work sitting in the front ...
