Just read some of the reviews of this complex, and felt that I had to offer my opinion.
We have stayed at the complex at least three times, always when we were in town for longer than two weeks. Last time was probably 5 years ago.
The price of the apartments is so low that they can halve the cost of staying in Vegas.
We have been there with various family / friends coming over and have had up to four apartments at the same time.
The apartments are clean and friendly and the grounds, swimming pools and hot tubs are great.
Yes you do have to supply towels, sheets etc but we found that we could nip to Wal-Mart and buy all these for a few dollars and just leave them when we left.
We have always found the office staff friendly and efficient and the grounds people especially keep the place beautifully, (when we were there last time they had turned off the fountains around the complex, because of the concerns for water conservation, rain falling on the wrong side of the Rockies apparently, but even so the grounds are really nice).
One of the reviewers said that they were afraid to go out the building, we never found that and walked when we could, its an easy 5 minutes walk to the Orleans, or Mc Mullins, and there is or was a really nice local bar really close called the Back street bar, (this was a gay bar but we as couples were welcomed and treated really well, the bar itself is beautiful, polished wood dance floor and a grand pool table).
The people who lived in the other apartments either lived there after first arriving to work in Vegas or were retried people especially the snow birds as they call them, mainly Canadians down to escape the winter cold up there.
We had absolutely no problems with any neighbour, no noise or rubbish problems. Everyone treated the place with respect.
There is a free bus that takes people into strip or even shopping if they want them too.
Is it basic yes but comfortable, and lots of local restaurants delivered to your door.
Tropicana west is a good road away from the strip you cross over I15, and you have a number of takeaway outlets and a gambling hall who’s name I forget but keep going past The Orleans, and you have restaurants, supermarkets etc and you can carry on out toward Red Rock Canyon.
All in all a great Vegas base for exploring.
