We stayed at the Tropicana from Feb 25 to Mar 4. We had a great room on the top floor (9th) of the original building facing directly at the ocean. The room, as usual, was clean and cleaned everyday. The air conditioner worked great, kept the room almost too cold sometimes which I loved. It was really nice to see...

If you can do excellent beach and pool amenities, airy light filled lobbies, spotless rooms, with amazing views from the ocean view rooms and multiple common patios, in an unbeatable location, along with a reasonable price and a so-so restaurant in an older building, then you will like the Tropicana. Everything is at your doorstep here, and it is quiet...

Every morning, promptly at 7:00 am, the garbage men arrive to remove the garbage. The process should take 5 minutes but rather they are there for a good 20 to 25 minutes as the garbage men rip open each bag and sift through it for pop cans. The entire time, their truck is on high idle and if your room...

My family and I stayed in Tropicana in October and had a wonderful experience for our first time. However, our second stay was the deal breaker for us. First off, the AC unit in our room would make a banging noise at night! We then asked to be moved rooms however that didn't happen until 3 days later. The beds...

Just a heads up. We booked a room on a "high floor" with "private balcony" and when we arrived we were given a room on main floor with no private balcony and no view. We were told that if we wanted the type of room that we booked, we should've contacted the hotel directly to confirm that we would receive...
