“Stay Here Often!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

My husband and I have stayed at this hotel quite often over the last 10 years. We are very pleased with the makeover to the entire hotel. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Plus, we love to gamble on the boat, and often have our room comped. We have also stayed a few times at Le Mergot and are truly impressed with it. Both facilities are to be commended for the fine service they provide. As a matter of fact we will be there later this week.

Room Tip: We enjoy asking for a river view room.

While I appreciate the remodel of Tropicana (formerly Casino Aztar), I wasn't exactly blown away. The phrase "Lipstick on a pig" keeps coming to mind. The décor is a step in the modern direction and the rooms smell better. I recently stayed with a voucher I was given by the casino for being a TropAdvantage member, which lowered the rate to a mere $25. This is the incentive I need to stay and play at Tropicana. The following is my Pros & Cons list for Tropicana Hotel.

Pros:
In-room refrigerator available upon request
Updated rooms (No more smoke smell)
Clean lines and simple décor in the room and bath
Connected to casino, 5 minute walk via skyway.

Cons:
No vending machines on room floors.
4pm check-in
11am check-out
Quite possibly the world's tiniest amenities (maybe two quarter-sized blobs of shampoo/conditioner)
No pool or gym

Thank you for your recent review of our Hotel. We are proud of the renovations that we have made and for the majority, so are our Guests. We are sorry that we left you lacking on our progress. We do not have a pool, but we do have a workout area at both of our hotels. On your next trip, if you do not like the one at Tropicana, please let us know and something else could possibly be worked out. Our amenities in the rooms are standard size that most hotels use and are complimentary items. If more are needed, we would be pleased to send more of an item up. We are pleased that you did find the room clean and updated. Our check in and out times are on line with others in the area, but if you arrived earlier and needed to check in, we do try to accommodate our guests when this happens. We also try to give late check outs whenever possible. Please give us another chance to WOW you when you return to the area. Thanks, Lynn

I stayed at the Tropicana while traveling for work. The casino is right on the river, Hotel is connected by walkway.
Its kind of an historic feel but up to date. This is a smaller boutique casino but will have to say was happy with the set up. Their main lobby offers a Louisiana style restaurant for cajun. Steak and burger places with a real nice sports bar. Near the casino within walking distance you have more restaurants to choose from and even a higher end hotel.
Casino is 3 floors. You can get your slots and poker room game going. I enjoyed my stay and the people were friendly and courteous.
Excellent room service at the hotel. I could fill out a form for what I wanted for breakfast and state a time. Leave it on the door before I went to bed and in the morning there was breakfast.
Outstanding service !!!!

I stayed at the Tropicana Evansville for one night during a business trip.
The rooms have updated contemporary decor and furnishings which I found to be tasteful. However I was disappointed on the second look. The carpet was dirty and not vacuumed properly. TV was flatscreen but too small for the room. The bathroom also was nicely updated with a large walk in shower and a vessel sink. The bathroom sink was dirty (contained old hair and toothpaste remains) and I later found out that it did not drain properly which explains the the collection of dirt.
Overall a nice idea but lack in details and I felt to be surrounded by 'dirt' from previous guests.
I paid $99/night so it was a rather inexpensive stay.
The breakfast buffet is ok. Average.
Wi-Fi is free but the connection is not stable.

Would not stay here again.

This Hotel is trying really hard to compete in a tough economy and I think they are doing a nice job. We had a comped room with a great view facing the river. The room was clean and comfortable with an updated bathroom. All of the staff greeted us with a smile and were very helpful. We met a casino host named Joanne and she was great. There are restaurants in and near the hotel with a great trail for walking right along the river.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river....they are nice and watching the barges go down the river is a trea...

We booked a room for our 4 year anniversary. The staff was very friendly and the check in was really quick. The room was really clean and nice but was dissappointed to find out that we didn't have a fridge in our room and the carpet was wet near the airconditioner which i got my socks wet that i just put on to go out for the night. The location is great for the casino there is a catwalk that takes you right into the casino where everything is at. Also we went to RI,RA a Irish Pub that was in walking distance and stayed there most of the night, would of went to Boogie Nights but it was the grand opening and the line was huge. We never used room service or anything so dont have a comment on that. The bathroom was very nice and the shower was huge. Only negative is that it was pretty expensive for a one night stay, no fridge in the room and our view was the city view was really hoping for a river view but guess thats my fault for not requesting it. Guess I expected a little more for a anniversary night out. Would come back again but only if I could get a discount on the room.

Room Tip: I would suggest to ask for a river view, city view isn't all that great, that is if you care abo...

Thank you for your recent review of our property. We are honored that you did decide to spend such an occasion as your anniversary with us. At this time, we do not have refrigerators in all the rooms, but we do have several on hand. We do not charge for these, but will gladly put one in your room upon request and based on availability. Please check our website, we do offer specials on there most of the time. Since our remodel, we have received lots of comments on our new, bright bathrooms. We are glad that your check in went well and that our Team was nice and friendly. Things are fun and exciting around property and with the new Boogie Nights Night Club, you never know what "Celebrity" Entertainer will be here. Please come back and check us out and don't forget to mention that you would like a river view room. I am sure you will enjoy it.

Clean, neat, basic professional amenities. Was there to give a paper at USI. Didn't even step into the casino. It's a weird place in general, but this is what you get in that neck of the woods. The people who work there are very nice. Room service/food was mediocre, but at least it was available. Yogurt parfait was a cup of yoplait (didn't ask what flavor I wanted) and generic granola. Blah.

Room Tip: ask for a riverfront room
