Awesome time! Posted May 2, 2013
The Tropicana was amazing! Although service was quite a bit slow when we checked in around 10 p.m. (they only had 1 person working the desk) and we did not get the room we booked, staff was quick to fix it by giving us an upgrade and we were able to move rooms just 2 doors down the next day. We were up in the bungalow tower overlooking the pool area and were amazed at how quiet it was. King size bed was super comfy and the room was always serviced to perfection. And the pool....wow! We practically lived there during the day as it was just too hot to walk the strip. Here's a tip - use the Deuce (bus that runs the strip clear down to Fremont) and buy a 24 hour ticket for only $8. We believe the Trop had the best paying slots out of any we played, but on the down side drink service was poor - in 5 days of play we were only offered drinks twice. And to be fair, it wasn't only at the Trop - plenty of other hotels were slow to offer drinks to players whether we were on the machines or at the tables. Be sure to sign up for the players card and use it for reduced priced drinks and food and to get your $200 in free play. As our flight didn't leave until 7, we arranged for late check out so we could get one more day in by the pool and the rate was only $33 and change, including tax. Bottom line, we LOVED the Tropicana and will definitely go back.
