“family vacation”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

For the most part we were very pleased during our 7 night stay at this motel and our group had 4 rooms and all of us felt the same way. The rooms were older but very nice and clean. The beds and pillows were quite comfortable. Each room had a microwave and mini refrigerator which was very handy. All of the staff was very helpful. We spent several days at the Disney Parks which made it very convenient to just walk across the street to get to the parks and not have to pay to park each time we went there. The only bad thing I found was the continental breakfast. It wasn't that what they had was bad but it was very limited and there was a charge for numerous items. The kids loved the pool and used it whenever we had free time. I would stay here again.

Very much as we expected but better. If going to Disney, you know this location rocks. if not, then there's not much reason to stay here. Parking fees suck, but for the area you expect it. It sure beats paying for parking in Disney's garage and waiting for/riding the trams. Parking lot had more space than expected. Room was unexpectedly quiet inside. Now it is a slower time of year for Disney and we were at the end of a 10 day vacation, but we all slept soundly all four nights. Room could use some updating. But it was clean, smell was fine, everything worked well. Bed more comfortable than average. Had complimentary fridge and microwave. Flat screen TV with more channels than we needed. I did not personally visit the hospitality room. But the complimentary coffee and pastries were good. Cereal and bagels were small additional charge. No complaints. Stay here if you have the chance to.

I've stayed at the Tropicana mult. times through the years on my trips to Disneyland. The location can't be beat (right across the street from Disneyland's entrance). It's nice that they offer a breakfast (selection has diminished through the years). I just found our last trip to be...eh ok.
When checking in the front desk staff saw I had a baby in a stroller. They were very nice in suggesting a ground floor unit so I didn't have to worry about elevators. But....they put us at the very end of the property, right next to the housekeeping break room. The room itself was ok, beds were comfy, tv worked. The bathroom is screaming for a renovation though. There was a sewer smell coming from the sink drains and from the tub drain. It was progressively worse as the trip went on..so I'm thankful we were out of the room 90% of the days.
Overall, I'll stay here again..I'll just remember to not stay in the room we were in.

We stayed at the Tropicana Inn & Suites in Anaheim, which is directly across Harbor Blvd from the entrance to the Disney Parks. We are Disney Season Pass holders and have visited the resort area many times in the past few years. This trip we stayed for five (5) nights at the Tropicana. It was very close to Disneyland, but the rooms were very small, the shower and bathroom were very small. I was disappointed that they did not advise of the $9.00/ per day parking fee in advance. The motel has a picture of this beautiful breakfast on their website, which is completely false. Everytime we arrived in the breakfast room, the place was picked clean, with no effort to restock. With all of the hotel choices around Disneyland, I will choose a different hotel next time.

We recently stayed here for a quick trip to Disneyland. I was expecting the worst, and was I wrong. The hotel is simple... clean beds and a fridge & microwave. However, the location to Disneyland made it a 5 star choice. We were right across the street from the entrance. It was an easy walk with a young child, and we were able to take a break in the middle of the day. We have stayed at the Disney hotels before, but for the price and the location, we will stay here in the future. Again, if you are expecting the Ritz, then don't stay here. But if you want a convenient room with easy access to the park, then this is the choice for you. We didn't have any noise problems or hot water issues.

Room Tip: Bring your own breakfast food. They charged for all breakfast items ($1 for a bowl of cereal).

Stayed for 2 nights in February 2013. Good value for the price we paid. As previous reviews have stated, directly across from the Parks, within easy asking distance. Beds were very comfy, of you like them soft. Rooms were ok.
In summary, good selection for the budget conscious traveller.

Great location. Room was clean and staff was friendly. My experience was "soured" when I found out at check-in that they charge $9.00 per night plus 17% tax for parking. I had no choice but to accept the fees since I had already booked the room ahead of time and the family was tired from the long drive. They said that they didn't include the parking fee in the price of their room because 50% of their customers don't have a car to park. I felt that this was a misleading statement due to the lack of available parking spaces in the evening hours. They should make it clear at the time that the room is booked that there will be additional fees if you are one of those people that happen to be driving a car on vacation.
