We arrived at the Tropicana around 9:30 PM, and the taxi driver was a little hesitant about the area and not sure exactly where to find the Tropicana. Less than $20 from the airport. Then we found it and Chuck popped out of the small office and said he was expecting us. Showed us our room and suggested that he... More

we stayed here for one night. booking a room spontaneously was no problem. the motel is rather close to downtown ft lauderdale. the rooms got that old school flair, but everything is clean and things don't look run-down at all. only thing: the shower curtain had some mold stains. apart from that: spotless! we were really impressed by the bed...

An old-fashioned motel but with microwave, coffee making facilities a fridge, TV and good WiFi access. Chuck was very welcoming and gave information on where to eat locally. We stayed in room 7 on the first floor and found it to be clean with no evidence of bed bugs as reported by Eileen C, so if there had been a... More

Clean, small motel. The manager, Chuck was extremely helpful. He made sure I was comfortable and even laundered my jeans after blue cheese dressing got on them the first day of my vacation. What a guy! Sandy from Austin

Great place! We were to arrive really late, I called and let the manager know, he told us where we could find our key. Our flight got delayed over night in Atlanta ( think snowmageddon) the next morning early the manager called to see if we were ok. I explained our flight was cancelled but that we would be arriving... More

Unfortunately, I got rows of inflamed itchy bed bug bites on my right knee and left ankle after one night upstairs in room #7. This was on the way back home. Was ok after one night in a room on the bottom floor (just arrived.)

I expected a decent property. I found an ideal one -- for the price. This is no grand Florida hotel -- nor even a familiar chain. Quite the opposite. It is a small motel in the tradition of the motor court now nearly obsolete. They used to line the primary highways like route 1 and route 20 back before the... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. I have to be honest, when we arrived I was a bit disappointed, the photos look mutch better. Basically you are just right beside a very busy rood. So don't get fooled by the pictures. BUT! The room is nice, a very lovely atmosphere. It's clean en cosy. A bit old but that has... More

It's a very small, basic motel on a busy street. The room was very clean, the bed comfortable, but the shower's so small that there's no room to turn around. Can't imagine how a bigger person would be able to take a shower there. And there was only one channel available on TV. The Wi-Fi was very slow, but it... More
