Never visit this place, we paid over $400 for this room, looked like a room that you would charge by the hour, plus no free... More

Yes the place did raise their rent, BUT my wife and i checked all around the island and this is by far the cleanest, nicest place, AND it is still $100 cheaper then other places. The staff was beyond friendly, the location was unbeatable, and the amenities were great. I recommend this place to anyone who plans to visit the... More

We stayed here with another couple in a two bedroom condo house. Very clean. There are some less than clean places to stay in Port A and will cost you an arm and a leg to stay in their filth, but not Tropical Resort. They were very friendly and my family and I had an excellent time.

This place has raised their lot rent $100 a month in the past 2 years all so we can sit there and watch him work on his fishing boat. Stayed there 2 years in a row and watched as nothing was done to improve anything in the RV park. I guess until enough people like me get fed up with... More

We're sorry about the misunderstanding about the price but not contacting us to verify if you'll be affected with the price change is not on us (which you're not actually affected). And as for Ken, the owner, he has a personal life of his own, too. He can't always be around the property 24/7 but will be happy to accommodate... More

Booked a last minute stay for my son and I got get down for a group event on the Island. I wanted clean, efficient, friendly and comfortable. We could not have been more pleased with the promises kept at this efficiency motor hotel room. Parked right in front of our room which we found in prefect order. It is obviously... More

We stayed in the efficiency motel room. It's an older motel but had apparently been remodeled. The room was clean, the kitchen area was nice with new cabinetry. Plenty of dishes and utensils to use. The owner/manager was cool too. We were pleasantly surprised.
