Tropicana Motel

Reviewed 26 March 2014

We stayed here on the last night of a cycling trip from Jax Beach to Sarasota, FL. The location on our route was perfect, but beyond that, it was a disappointment. We walked into the lobby after cycling all day and it was stiflingly hot and the girl was behind a very unfriendly Plexiglas wall. The AC didn't work at first, then it got fairly cool, but then later that night it got very warm in the room and we wondered if the hotel managers had some sort of temperature program on it to save money. The room had a fridge and microwave, although some of the old two prong outlets wouldn't allow us to plug in modern stuff. And, I have to say, it has been a long time since I've stayed in a hotel that didn't offer coffee at all - not in the lobby or the room! Even they cheapest places I've stayed have a coffee pot in the lobby. This place could be a lot nicer, but it's clear the current management is into cutting costs and trying to maximize profits - at the expense of customer comfort. At least it had wifi and an ice machine.

Room Tip: Keep traveling!

The only reason I only gave it 3 starts is because of the lack of updated electrical plugs and limited WiFi access. The Motel is VERY clean, customer service is wonderful, and the place is very comfortable. I was working in Wauchula for a week and because of the Sebring races hotel rooms were limited. I decided to try the Tropicana and was pleasantly surprised. I would definitely stay here again. Management was thoughtful and kind.

Room Tip: WiFi access was limited (it wan't working in the rooms in the back) but I stayed next to the off...

If your looking for fancy,new or a flat screen TV, then this is not the place for you. If your looking for friendly, clean and great price, then check it out. In walking distance to resturants and Walmart.
