Motel 6 Las Vegas - Tropicana
Ranked #159 of 263 Hotels in Las Vegas
Reviewed September 26, 2012

My brother and I stayed in Las Vegas from 9/14 to 9/17 at this motel 6. First thing I have to say is we were very surprised and pleased with this motel's location. It sits literally a block away from the center of the big major strip hotels, New York New York, Excalibur, Tropicana and MGM grand. Worked out for us because we were in town to see the Canelo-Lopez fight at the MGM grand. Upon first entering the room, we noticed that it was quite small. It is much smaller then the standard size rooms at the casino strip hotels. The beds were a bit stiff and took some getting used to before you felt comfortable, but manageable nonetheless. The room looked like it was recently renovated, and it had a 32" flatscreen with external ports for HDMI, VGA and RCA audio/video. We were able to hookup our laptop to the tv screen and watch our netflix movies/tv shows on the flatscreen when there wasn't something on we wanted to watch, so that worked out great for us. You must purchase internet by the day extra as its not included in the regular hotel fee, but it was $2.99 a day so that wasn't bad. The restroom was small but manageable, very clean and well stocked with towels. The shower is VERY small and if your tall and big you may have a tough time bending down in it and moving around, so just a heads up. The toilet worked great also.. You know how some toilets flush and the water goes down so slowwwwly to where it makes you wonder as to whether or not your excrementation is gonna go down or just stay floating there? Or maybe like half of it goes down but some stays floating? Not with this! Im happy to say our.. excrementation, both liquid and solids, got sucked down that toilet quicker then you can say "Ohh --!".. No Joke. Theres a shower/toilet room, and thats connected to a small hallway that has a sink, and there are doors between that hallway the act as a barrier between the restroom and the main room. These doors have NO LOCK on them, they just close. This wasn't a bother for my brother and me,but if your someone who insists on secure bathroom privacy (or your staying with immature friends in your room), this might be a problem for you. No Fridges, but the room has an ice bucket and there are ice machines located on the property to serve your ice cold needs, just bring a cooler. The TV has the basic local channels and basic cable channels (ESPN, CNN, Comedy Central) just to name a few and it has 2 HBO channels. Maid service is usually in the afternoon and our room was always freshly made each time we returned, be sure to tip, this is Vegas after all. The only gripes I have about this motel and Im sure its a hotel chain policy, is that it doesn't offer early check-in or late check-out. Well, it did have a "late" check out if you want to call it that. The normal check-out time is 11am, thier late check-out is 11:30am. They have absolutely no early check-in, you have to purchase the entire prior day if you want to check in any earlier then the 3pm normal check-in time. All in all, I have to say that this motel 6 is a Good alternative to the big strip hotels if your looking to save money yet still be close to the action. Including the daily internet fee, it only cost us around $58 a night for us and we were there for 3 nights.

Room Tip: Try to get a room furthest away from the Lobby if you want some peace & quiet. Thier seems to be...

Drove from LA to Vegas for a couple of days, hadnt booked any accom so after a few stops at some of the less known hotels (!) we found this place...the price was reasonable, we paid a little extra for a recently refurbished room so the decor was new, clean & modern. 5 min walk to MGM/NY NY junction on the strip. Airport across the road but hardly noticable at all, runway is on the other side so we didnt hear any aircraft noise! Ended up staying an extra night! Nice pool area too...Actual stay...April 2009!!

Off Tropicana from eastbound interstate turn left, go over overpass and turn left on Dean Martin and your destination is on your right. Rooms stink from smoke but at least there was no head lice found. Summer rates should not apply at this time of year.

In need of a cheap place of stay - I called for a room. I was told that the $28 online rate would be honored at the desk. I ended up going for the $31 renovated room. It was great. Small, tidy, and clean. Conveniently located.

Room Tip: Don't know about the other rooms, but the RENOVATED ones were great.

I hear this place has renovated rooms but we stayed in a room in the back that was just a regular old motel six room. Decently priced on expedia for a last minute reservation, however the room was dingy, bed was hard I think that was a working lady outside when I pulled up but hey it's Vegas right. Hard to find a parking spot but pet friendly it was ok I wouldn't do it again

Rarely do I write a bad review because people have a bad day sometimes and word of mouth is the best marketing tool in the service industry and can make or break a business...

HOWEVER, there is NEVER an excuse for a dirty hotel/motel room when checking in. My wife and I spent 7 nights in Las Vegas last week and were catching the red eye back home the next night. After we checked out of our resort we checked into the closest Motel 6 on Tropicana Blvd. so we did not have to lug our bags around the Vegas strip for 12 hours on Saturday. We were just going to be at the Motel 6 from 11 am to 11pm that day...

Upon checking in, I thought all was to be good because the staff was very nice and checked us in early. Walking to the room we thought the property looked pretty run down compared to the buildings closer to the office. The first thing we noticed when we walked into the room was the smell. The room smelled like a mixture of cat urine and whatever cleaner housekeeping had tried to cover the smell up with. We thought, well we will just leave our bags and go grab a bite to eat and walk around Vegas for the day and maybe it wouldn't be so bad. We were wrong. DEAD wrong...

After lunch, we returned to the room and really noticed all of the horrible things that should never be when you check into any motel. First let me tell you that this locations website has misleading photos of the property as all of the rooms do NOT look like the ones they show online. (Notice photos attached to this review.) Let me just list the things that were bad in room 1027.
1) Air Conditioner: Broken, not cold and mold was all over it. Disgusting and shameful.
2) Toilet was not clean.
3) Black mold in the shower.
4) Shower head was rusted.
5) Bed was uncomfortable. (Mattress appeared to be 15+ years old.)
6) Pillows were old and stiff.
7) Comforter smelled weird, looked 20+years old and for kids.
8) Room smelled of cat urine and cleaner.
9) Wife saw a giant cockroach outside the door under AC unit.
10) Half of the tv channels did not work and tv was ancient.

We actually changed and checked out the pool as well, what a mistake. This property has 2 swimming pools. The nicer one behind the office was crowded so we opted for the smaller, second pool near our room. There was trash on the ground and in the water, enough said about that.

Now in Motel 6's defense, I have stayed at many locations over the years and they were all just fine. This location was just horrible and they are just one block off of the Vegas Strip! This property also had some very, let's just say "seedy" customers and once it got dark (I can't believe we stayed that long) we headed to check out early to sleep on the much safer Las Vegas airport floor.

The only saving grace is that as soon as I told the manager about the horrible conditions, he gave us our money back. I just pray that the owner is told about this experience so that in the future, accommodations are renovated and fixed so that customers do not receive such an awful room for their hard earned money.

Room Tip: Here's a tip: try another Motel, this one sucks and we felt was dangerous.
