Anyone stayed at the El Tropicano recently ?

Our first trip to SA and we are stating 2 nights, and then on to Austin. I haven't seen any recent posts on this hotel . I know it is quite a far walk from the action, but we like to walk, so that is not a problem, but is it a safe walk at night.?

Also any other opinions or comments on the hotel.? I realize there are nicer places, but this one fits our budget. Thanks in advance

It is safe to walk the river from El Tropicano. It's actually convenient if you're walking north to the Pearl. It is an older property and caters to groups like children's sports. I've never stayed there, but have been there for meetings.

I'm a big fan of Hotwire or Priceline - usually can find a very nice hotel for about 90 bucks downtown. Remember they almost all charge $20 or so parking.
