“Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

We stayed here when we were visiting Disneyland. The staff were lovely. There was an issue with our reservation when we arrived, but that was cleared up with a minimum of fuss which was much appreciated as we had just come from a 14hr flight from Australia. The hotel was across the road from Disneyland which I found amazing. We were also close to transport to shopping outlets in the area. The staf were friendly and very helpful.

Stayed October 2012, traveled with family

After doing some research we decided on staying at the Tropicana. As it turned out this was a great decision. We were very fortunate to get a nice gentlemen at the front desk when we check in that gave us a better room for our family. Thank you !! 3 kids and two adults. Viewed the fireworks one night from our balcony. Rooms are not plush of course but certainly very adequate and clean. One of the A/C units was not working correctly but it didn't affect our sleep. Good TV's clean sheets and towels in the bathrooms. Very happy with our stay and would recommend it for the price.

The location is perfect near the main cross walk to the Disney entrance. A good convenience store within the hotel. Many restaurants nearby etc. I would recommend Denney's for breakfast. We paid 50US at IHOP at 35 at Denney's for the basically the same options.

If you want to stay at a motel directly across the street from Disneyland's front door, look no further. Easy access, ability to leave Disney at any time of the day and run back for a nap, or to change clothes as the weather changes. If location matters the most, you can't do any better than being just outside the Disney Harbor Avenue Main Walk-In Gate. You are actually only steps away from where all the shuttle busses drop visitors off.
As a motel property, the rooms are acceptable, average size and soundproofing, well ventilated and the bathrooms are clean. The towels and sheets are average, the pillows a bit spongy. There is a $9 daily charge to park your car, but this is still cheaper than the Disney day lots, and the attendant keeps out pirate parkers. They let you stay in their lot if it is too early to check in, an added bonus. There is a breakfast room on the 3rd floor, but only the coffee is really complimentary; expect to pay a buck or two for any juice or breakfast danish item. I guess this keeps out the lookie loos and their messy kids that take lots of food and throw it away, but it feels cheap to have to pay for a sweet roll after spending between $100 and $200 a night to sleep. There are plenty of places for fast-food breakfast within 1 block in any direction.
After reading the reviews of the Tropicana Inn, I will admit my bar was set pretty low. I was expecting a lot less than they delivered. So I was surprised that the property was nice and clean, spacious lobby, easy parking access, and an elevator available to help get luggage to the upper floors. This is no Hilton or Sheraton, so just go with it and you will be happy with what you pay and how close you stay.

I have stayed at numerous hotels along Harbor such as Howard Johnson, BW Park Place Inn, BW Anaheim Inn, Park Vue Inn, and Anaheim Inn. This is the teeniest, tiniest room I have ever experienced. I read some other reviews on this hotel and one person said on one stay they had a reasonable sized room and the next stay they had a tiny room so I am wondering if the wing with the 3 stories has the tiny rooms as I was on the 3rd floor. Perhaps you can call and ask the hotel if the side with only two stories has larger rooms. For some reason they were also having serious issues with the fire alarm going off! I believe it went off at least 4 times during our stay. Two of the times were in the middle of the night after midnight and woke me up! Very frustrating!
The Pros:
Amazing front desk help..very friendly and courteous
Rooms are very clean
During our stay we went from barely any tv channels to tons..so I think they must have upgraded
Good size refrigerator in the room
Nice thick bath towels
Comfortable bedding and plenty of pillows--6 per bed I think
Very close walk to Disneyland
Great view of the fireworks on the 3rd floor
Quiet on the 3rd floor except for the rude parents that let their kids run up and down the deck screaming--not the hotels fault--

Cons:
Very noisy air conditioner...we had to leave the lid panel open so it wouldn't keep us awake vibrating
Microwave was tiny and didn't pop popcorn well
The smallest room I have ever experienced--double queen best suited for 2 or 3 people only
The dresser they provided only had 3 shallow drawers..we couldn't unpack our whole family because you can really only fit a 3 day supply in each drawer and we were more than 3 people in our family.
Fire alarm kept going off
Swimming pool wasn't heated
Breakfast was laughable..we went to the grocery store and got our own and ate in the room

Unless they do have larger double queen rooms available I would not stay at this hotel again.

Just spent a few days with teenagers & So very happy we chose to stay here for location alone!!
Arrived from Orlando having done Walt Disney World the 2 weeks prior .. OMG that was very cool but have to say Still a really big Fan of California Disneyland - it's really nice to stay till close & then walk out the exit & 2mins later your home in bed.... (Unlike Orlando Disney it's a trip & a half to get out wait for transfers/ bus,monorail etc.).... Or you can watch fireworks from hotel etc.
GOOD stuff : Great beds all slept really well, no probs with water etc.
.......great staff
NOT SO good but in no way a deal breaker: is what they call continental breakfast (coffee, donuts pastries, apple - free but have to pay for cereal/ milk ?)
But we could have got our own & had in room - but on hols so was Macca's or elsewhere. (Macca's just 2 min walk. So all good & Macca's also have free wifi another bonus )

ALL IN ALL WOULD STAY AGAIN - if not able to get booking then I opt for our other favourite JUST A FEW DOORS AWAY = PARK VIEW INN...

Room Tip: Upstairs 1st floor for view & no car park noise

3 gal-pals and I went on a road trip to Disneyland. We wanted to stash our car and be able to walk into Disneyland, California Adventure, and the Downtown Disney District. The Tropicana Inn & Suites was ideal. A short walk (100 yards?) to main crosswalk into the 3 parks, yet far enough to feel removed from the hustle & bustle. The rooms were clean, spacious (though 4 women and one bathroom was a bit of a scheduling nightmare), and the pool/hot tub was lovely after a long day of walking on concrete. Tropicana does not have a breakfast, but there are a handful of restaurants nearby or there's always something in a park. TV, fridge, coffee pot, etc.

Room Tip: The best rooms are away from the street. We were on the ground floor which worked for us.

This hotel is located directly across from the pedestrian entrance to Disneyland. It has the most convenient parking entrance and exit of the hotels across the street. It looks nice on the outside. The rooms are on the smaller side, but they're comfortable and cozy. The bed was very comfortable. We had the king bed room on the 2nd floor, on the side by the front desk. There is not an elevator on that side of the hotel, so we had to take the stairs (boo!). Check-in was easy and fast, as was check-out. The front desk was friendly and helpful. We had to call for more toilet paper, and they brought it up right away. This is our favorite place to stay across the street when we can get it at a good rate. Would definitely recommend this hotel. The walk to and from Disneyland is so convenient!

Room Tip: If you need access to an elevator, upon booking request the elevator side or an accessible room.
