ascot motel or Tropicana

I am going to A.C on friday for the entire weekend. I have two hotels booked and can't decide which to choose? The ascot is cheaper but the reviews are horrible. Can an expert advise me asap? thanks.

I’ve never been to the ascot, but unless it was a VERY large amount of money difference I would take the Trop. No contest! In spite of what some may post the Trop has mostly nice rooms. I’ve stayed at the Trop and never had a major complaint in any of their towers, and I haven’t heard anything near as good about the ascot.

Good Luck—it’s your gamble

I will save $140 by staying at the ascot but I get scared easily and I want to be comfortable.

>>“I get scared easily and I want to be comfortable.”<<

Then take the Trop. There’s so much more there than any outside motel. If those savings are significant to you I suggest you consider canceling both places. Unless your interests are what the casino resorts don’t advertise? ;-)

Trust me, if you had booked it, one look at the Ascot and you'd gladly pay the $140 difference to be at the Trop!

No contest, stay with the Trop. I'm sure you'd feel more comfortable in a large, Vegas style hotel/casino then a small motel you'd often find in murder movies.

On serious note, if you wish to feel comfortable and have a good time, $140 won't feel that big of a difference.

Coincidently I stayed in the Tower at the Trop this past weekend with a view of the beach and the ascot. Never observed more than 2 or 3 cars in their parking lot...for what thats worth.
