“I doubt I'd stay here again.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed here, the price was great for the location however when we left and had returned to our room there was a roach on the table by our food bag. My husband called and walked to the lobby in the meantime I caught the roach in a cup and took it to the lobby so they knew we were being truthful it was gross. However the staff was very helpful and wanted to work with us therefore they had upgraded us to what they call a disney suite which faces the park, it was nice however I don't know if I'd stay there again I wouldn't want to bring roaches home with me.

Booked this hotel for its proximity to Disneyland, with the entrance just across the road.
Rooms were dated but clean. Staff were helpful. The continental breakfast is not the best. It consists of donuts & danishes that look like they have been bought from Costco. Apples, oranges, tea, coffee & O.J. are also on offer. Better get breakfast else.
This is a good hotel for families on a budget who are spending their day at Disneyland & not in the room.

This hotel is old but comfortable. It is all about the location, can't get much closer to Disneyland. Our room was rather small, no extra floor space at all, but it was clean and in decent repair. There are two elevators, but they are close together, and not very convenient to our room. Also, not enough ice machines. Breakfast was fine if you like dry danish and donuts, orange juice and coffee. There aren't many choices as it is, but then the hostess didn't refill the more popular choices until the less popular ones were gone. They get you coming and going at this hotel. If you want anything else for breakfast, you have to pay for it. Cereal, milk and bagels are available for a price. No hot choices or much selection. Also, they charge $9/night parking. I believe parking should be part of your price, and felt dinged again, but that's just me. Overall it was decent, and the convenience is wonderful, but I probably won't stay here again.

This hotel is run down and dated, and if that were the only problem, I would be okay with it. As others have stated, the continental breakfast is terrible, and still that would be okay. But on our stay, our room had multiple roaches and earwigs. Not okay. We also came back to our room at around 4:30, and it still hadn't been made up. You can't beat the proximity to Disneyland if you're not staying in a Disney resort, but we won't be staying here again the next time we go.

Room Tip: Stay in the rooms in the back or back corners. The other rooms are by the pool, which is loud and op...

We apologize sincerely regarding the issues you experienced with bugs in your room during your recent stay. This is the first summer season that we encountered an issue with insects. Rest assured we have taken your comments very seriously and wanted to let you know that we hired a new pest control company who successfully eliminated the critters that were making their way into our guest rooms. This new company will also maintain the pest control on a monthly basis. Once again, please accept our apology and we hope you will give us another chance on your next visit to the "Happiest Place on Earth".

Two of my daughters and I recently visited Anaheim, CA, and stayed at the Tropicana Inn & Suites. We had no complaints -- everything was as we hoped. Our room was clean, comfortable and the staff was very courteous and eager to help. The pool and hot tub were nice surprises as they contained no chlorine but rather salt water and were open till 10 pm. After a long day at Disney or sightseeing elsewhere, it's nice to take a dip and relax in the pool and hot tub. Speaking of sightseeing, we had several excursions scheduled (e.g., San Diego Zoo, Universal and tour of Hollywood/LA) and the buses picked us up every morning right outside the Tropicana! Talk about centrally located and the convenience to Disneyland is a wonder in itself as one can easily walk back and forth there! Also, from our 3rd floor room, we had an amazing view of fireworks every night - so close that the first night my daughters and I were starting to doze and woke up thinking there was an earthquake! The breakfast was not great but I wasn't really expecting it to be and there are several restaurants in the immediate area, so it's not that big a deal. The milk should be free -- within reason, I don't mean like a free gallon...A laundromat is conveniently located on the premises as is a market selling all kinds of needed items. Be forewarned, however, that it is definitely overpriced! A SMALL bottle of Tide was nearly $7! All things considered, I would definitely stay here again and recommend the Tropicana Inn to everyone, especially families with small children who would truly benefit from the proximity to the parks. We had a wonderful, magical time in Cali and a nice place to return to each night after a long, busy day. Thank you, Tropicana Inn & Suites.

Room Tip: We were on the 3rd floor facing the pool. This seems to be a nice, quiet corner and you can hurry t...

Hotel was pretty much exactly as expected.
The rooms were clean, comfy, and quiet. Not huge or extravagant but totally fine. The pool was great, open until 10pm. You can see the fireworks from the pool and our front door -funny story the first night we were tired and in bed, and then the fireworks started and I thought some kid was bouncing a basketball on the hallway above us, we were MAD and then realized it was just the fireworks.
It has it's own market store with basic groceries and beer, wine etc. A great pizza place next door, and immediately outside the park gate. Location could not be better.
The reviews are correct in that the free breakfast is kinda crappy. For me it didn't matter, but, the business side of me thinks they should either increase their room prices (if need be) by $5 and provide a good breakfast, or stop doing it at all. Otherwise it gives people something to complain about. Either do it right or not at all. I wouldn't base a stay on that breakfast anyhow, but can see it being a selling feature so why not make it a positive?
It's not the Hyatt Regency Orange County that we stayed at last time, but it's much cheaper and the location is simply unbeatable.

Room Tip: Top floor facing the pool

We stayed two nights here and found that even though it was budget and cheap, it was the closet to the main gate at Disneyland .. in price. There are others mabe 3 foot closer but at the time of our trip they were ALOT more in price. this place was fine for us, clean enough, wasnt new or exciting, was a typical budget hotel but for us it was whatever we could do to avoid the shuttle bus trips. Was perfect walking a few mins walk to the hotel rather than lining up and squashing into a shuttle bus after a full on day (or two!) at disneyland. no wifi, but McDonalds is 2 min walk and has free wifi. Would stay there again if it was the cheapest option. staff are friendly and helpful. Tsayed on second floor. room was big enough for two of us sharing.
