“Can't get any closer to Disneyland!”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We chose this property on the advice of friends that travel regularly to Disneyland, as we wanted to be able to walk to the park and back as needed.

This hotel is located just across the street from the main Disneyland/California Adventure entrance. You really can't beat the location! We stayed two nights during the 4th of July week, and the hotel was at maximum capacity. We were allowed to check in about an hour early with no problems, and both of our rooms were ready. Without asking, they gave us adjoining rooms, since both reservations were made under the same Hotels.com reservation. Though this wasn't needed, I thought it was a nice touch. We drove to dinner in Downtown Disney, and arrived fairly late in the evening to find there was no parking available! The parking attendants offered to valet park our car instead (it ended up being the same price). That said, parking is not included in the hotel stay. The price wasn't unreasonable, but it is another charge that should be figured into the cost of the stay. The hotel staff (particularly Paloma) were all very welcoming and helpful. I did not partake in the "free" breakfast, but everyone else in our group did and were surprised to see that the "free" breakfast includes only a handful of items. If you want milk for your cereal, there's a charge. I thought it was a stretch to offer a breakfast advertised as free, then charge for nearly all the items on it. The property has a well-maintained pool and spa (open until 10pm) and a food court, mini-mart and gift shop on site for last-minute essentials.

There is Wi-Fi, but it is not included in the room rate.

Beds are amazing- room was super quiet - we were on the second floor - right beside mcdonalds and right across from Disney. The only complain is the breakfast is horrible and you have to pay for the milk and cereal and there was no toast. We just went to McDonalds.

We have just stayed at the Tropicana for 7 days. it is directly across the road from the entrance to Disneyland. We had a room with two double beds and a kitchen. Two small fridges in the room so we stocked up at Albertsons down the road for breakfasts and a few meals. There is a pool and a spa (hot tub) which is great after a day of walking thousands of km's around Disneyland. Clean and comfortable and met our needs for a week at Disneyland.

This hotel is not a five-star resort by any means, but it is simple and clean and right across the street from Disneyland. My family and I have annual passes, so we have frequented several of the hotels in the area. We've stayed at some of the more high-end properties (Hilton, Marriott) and some of the smaller boutique hotels (Candy Cane Inn, Crown Resort), but the Tropicana was by far the easiest to get to the park and back.

The room is sparse and minimal. We are not used to staying at a hotel where the doors open to the outside (no interior corridors), so it has a bit of a motel feeling to it. Parking was easy and check-in was quick and simple. They only hold a $20 deposit on your credit card for incidentals, compared to most higher-end hotel chains that hold $200 - 300.

When we first entered the room, we were overcome by a bleachy, chemical smell that seemed to be masking a faint mildew order. The bleach smell was strong enough to other my two teenage kids, so we dropped our bags and headed to the park. After a long day, the beds were comfortable, the jacuzzi looked inviting (although we didn't use it) and the shower was warm. My daughter declined to shower because she thought the shower head was too "dirty", but it just looked like rust to me.

I am extremely sensitive to noise when I sleep, so I opted to wear earplugs to be safe. Didn't hear a peep all night. The hotel has a window AC unit (which I wasn't used to) with no thermostat, which meant we came back to a freezing cold room after our day at the park.

The hotel is right next to an iHop, Denny's, and "Captain Kidd's Buffet" ... so we grabbed some cheap east before heading to the overly expensive park. The location was amazingly convenient. My only bummer was that they charged $10 a night for parking, which seemed a little ridiculous for such a small low-end property.

Overall, this place is NOT meant to be for a relaxing vacation stay, but a place to fall into your bed after a long day at Disneyland. Nothing is better than a 5 minute walk to your bed after a day in the park.

This was a great hotel experience! The best feature were the comfy beds. I had never slept so good in my life...no exageration! We were there a week and became very comfortable with our surroundings. With a perfect location, right across the street from Disneyland, lots of eating choices within short walking distance. (Denny's, IHOP and McDonalds among the chain restaurants as well as a few locally known choices) Convenient shuttle transportation hub at Disney with 18 different routes offering easy, convenient transportation to other attractions or shopping. Local Greyline tour bus pick up was just a few steps away which enabled a carefree way to see much more of CA than we expected. What a nice treat! A big hot tub and crystal clear pool in which fireworks could be seen from across the street. Staff was professional and helpful and housekeeping did an immaculate job with sprucing up our room while we were out playing. The beds were made with not one wrinkle, all towells replaced, everything spotless. The only complaint I had was for some reason, our room was damp. It wasn't important enough to have to go through the inconvenience of switching rooms, however. The housekeepers sprayed air freshner which helped a lot with the musty smell which comes along with the dampness. (oh yeah...and the carpet made our feet dirty) Other than that, this hotel is top notch. I would come here again, but would just ask for a different room. (We stayed in RM 170)

Room Tip: Avoid Rm 170. It's damp which makes everything you sit on or touch feel damp and sticky.

We've stayed here twice now. It's right across from the pedestrian entrance to Disney land. We could see the fireworks from our window. Both times we were pleased with how quiet and clean it was. Don't get me wrong - this is no 5 star resort. It's a clean, comfortable, family hotel with a breakfast, a pool, a coin-operated laundry room and within easy walking distance from Disneyland. You do pay for that convenience, but for our family it's completely worth it to maximize our time in the park. If you're traveling with younger kids, it's great to be able to take a break from the park for an afternoon swim or nap. I found their website to be very accurate and informative.

Room Tip: Many rooms in the south building have a view of the fireworks. Otherwise, you can see them from the...

We stayed here for two nights in July. The staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. Our luggage had been lost by US airways and the staff did everything they could to help us while we tried to get our luggage back. The room was comfortable and clean, everything you need. The location was the best, right opposite Disneyland which meant we could walk to all the parks and Downtown Disney. The parking is $9 which for the location I think is reasonable, parking is at a premium but we always found a spot. We had breakfast a Millie's which was good with good service. I would recommend this hotel and would definitely stay again.
