I was looking up the Internet for a cheap hotel with an internet connection for my internet-addicted husband, and found Tropical Inn. I booked online and found it a convenient and simple process. The hotel itself was trickier to find - we drove up and down the length of Jalan TAR and Jalan Trus before we could find Jalan Gereja, but once we did find it, we realized it was definitely conveniently located to the Causeway to Singapore and to town. The basement parking was dirty, smelly, and dark but the external parking was convenient to the entrance.
Checking in was quick and simple, though they did a funny business of charging my credit card for RM300 and refunding it back. Apparently to check its validity. The elevators were old and slow and the corridors smelt musty and you could hear thumping noises from inside various rooms, but the room itself was pretty good for its price - clean and functional. The internet and the TV worked fine too. Despite the lack of insulation within the corridors, inside the room, we heard nothing from the other rooms. We slept pretty well. Sadly, the breakfast was ordinary fare, and some of it was almost inedible.
I'd say it was almost exactly what we expected and we got our money's worth. The only thing I would ask to improve would be the basement parking, as sometimes the external parking would be full and we would be forced to park in the basement, which was really, genuinely awful.
