“Rooms dated but still a good time.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Well decided to use a comp room that we had earned last time we visited. We usually just visit Tropicana for the restaurants and the good location. This time we booked a room earlier in the day. When we arrived, our room was eligible for an $30 upgrade to a suite. I never had anything close to a suit before so I went for it. It was on the ocean side on the 62 floor. Had 1 1/2 bathrooms a living separate living room and a huge King size bed. The decor was really dated but everything worked especially the raining Ocean View. We won a lil money and had an overall good time..

I stayed at the Trop for two nights which i got a great $39 a night plus free breakfast deal. Had a comfortable room with a nice view of the boardwalk and beach. The Trop is my favorite place to stay in atlantic city due to the many things to do if your not a big gambler. The area they call the quarter is a nice place to stroll n hang out in, plus shop n eat. They also have a nice IMAX theather which i went to see the movie Gravity in while my family was off gambling. There are many sports bars and clubs which you can watch a good game in while having a few beers. And if u are a gambler there are many areas to get your gaming in. Over all its my casino of choice in AC.

I recently went to the Tropicana in AC for my 27th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the North Tower. Room was clean, restaurants were great and the casino was wonderful. Never really needed to leave the resort. It is alittle far from the rest of the casinos, but that is the only complaint.

Stayed here for three nights over the summer.

When we checked in, we upgraded to a bigger room in the Havana Tower. When we got to the room, we could not believe that the room we were standing in was an upgrade. It was basically a normal room with a half-partition wall separating the bed and the couch. The bedding looked like it was from the 70's. The couch was dirt and there were stains on the wall. The windows were covered with finger prints. The bathroom was not well lit, and had no shower- only an over sized jacuzzi (you couldn't pay me to get in that). Oh, and we were told it was an ocean view, when we looked out the window all we could see was a brown wall!! My boyfriend went back down to the front desk to complain.

They moved us to the West Tower (Blue rooms). The second room was much better. It had a separate room with a couch, tv, mini-fridge, and table. The view was also much better, you could see the ocean and not a wall. The bathroom was spacious, but the shower was very, very small.

The hotel itself is old and worn down. Not very well taken care of. You can clearly see the wear and tear walking down the hallways. The doors were dirty, chipped paint, stains on the carpets, etc.. The only good thing about this hotel is the Quarters' shops and the location on the boardwalk.

Definitely not worth the money they ask for during the summer season. I will not be returning to this hotel unless they do some MAJOR renovating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the West tower. Stay away from Havana tower!

Received an upgrade upon check in. Spacious (est 500 sq ft) suite with own two sofa seating area and two LCD TV. Room very clean and furnishing modern. Premium bedding, internet signal strong, and check in/check out process was smooth and pleasant.Location ideal for our purposes:we walked back from shopping at the Outlet in the morning, did some gambling, then walked on the boardwalk and beach, had dinner and back to the hotel to have a glass of wine while watching the sun set from our room.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Atlantic Ocean

We recently stayed at the Tropicana for a friends 50th birthday because it was cheap..I guess the saying "You get what you pay for" is very true in this case! We should have known right away from the general population in the lobby..very young, tacky, and drunk early in the afternoon. The hotel is very dated and the hallways in the rooms our smelly and littered. Our room was large because we requested a suite but it looked like it hasn't been decorated since the 80s. The bathroom was also dated except for the granite countertop.
The Casino was boring and ugly. The workers were all rude, non-egaging and no personality.....simply just doing their job. The dealers were awful to the point it made it extremely boring to even want to sit and play. No excitement here at all! We went to the Boogie Nights club and it was beyond tacky and had a horrible soundtrack playing the whole time!We would NEVER go back here and it's definitely worth paying more for a better experience and nicer staff.

Room Tip: Ask for upgrade at front desk

Got to the Trop on the 23rd and left on the 24th for another hotel. The hotel did not give us a discount or playing $$. As did the Valley Forge. Good ole Groupon. Reception wait most uncomfortable no chairs, sofas etc. Good casino made some of my $$ back. Not as good as the Seneca, NY.and we are Canadians. Ate on the boardwalk and the food was not great...no wine in this restaurant. The first restaurant we went to in the hotel very few customers, prices ridiculous for hamburgers so we got up and left. Stores were great. Beds/pillows were comfy and ironically clean and fresh smelling. Rugs should be replaced.
