Looks Ok when you first enter, HOWEVER, the rooms are run down, freezing cold, have paper thin walls, and stone age TVs. You can hear babies crying and kids running up and down the halls all night. And the whole place stinks like chlorine from the waterslide. Thehot tub had brown scum on top. The "Irish Pub" is a greasy local bar with rude staff who prefer to hang out with their local friends than serve you. The two restaurants there are open at odd hours if at all, and if they are the staff might simply tell you they are actually closed. A truly bizarre place

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. First when we first arrived (after an entire day of driving with 2 pets in the car) our room wasn't ready. We were told to basically just go wait outside for an hour until it was ready for us. No apology or anything. Then we finally get checked in, go to our room - and someone is already in there!!!!! Watching an X rated film if you get my drift.

They put us in a second floor room - and then informed us the elevator wasn't working. So we had to haul our stuff and our pets up and down 2 flights of stairs for a room where the air conditioning wasn't working. When we got settled in our room there was only one set of towels so we called the front desk. 5 hours later they still hadn't brought any.

I don't care how good the rates are or how convienent the location is, you couldn't pay me to stay there again. Nothing worked, the staff was incredibly rude and it was dirty. No thanks.

We picked this hotel because of the waterslide, the waterslide was nice except for the mold at the top of the stairs to the waterslide. We picked a room overlooking the swimming pool, the room did not have any climate control and the temperature was 26 degrees celcius at all times. We called the front desk to tell them about the room temperture and they told us that the room would cool down when the swimming pool closed, it did not and we found ourselves standing in the hallway at 2:00am trying to cool down. The food we ordered from the room service was not very good. The hotel hallways and lobby was very dirty, with ciggarette butts all over the ground at the front entrance to the hotel. The staff working there were not very freindly.

We decided not to stay another night at this hotel and moved to the new Golden Eagle Lodge. The Golden Eagle Lodge was one dollar more a night and is a first class hotel.

This hotel has nicely decorated compact rooms. Stucco ceiling with crown moulding, light wood furnishings, attractive window coverings and wall pictures, and a muted wallpaper throughout. My room had a queen bed, so there was also 2 high back chairs. Lots of lighting. Games and pay movies on the tv. Some rooms have a half-sized fridge - no fee, and some rooms have balconies. Bathroom is small, but I've been in smaller.

There is a small elevator; the hotel has 2 floors of rooms forming a square. In the centre are 2 water slides and hot tub. I walked in there hoping for fitness equipment; found a steam room. But that whole area gave me the creeps. Old and dingy. I never did see anyone use those facilities.

Smitty's Restaurant next to the lobby has a neat aquarium, but I wasn't impressed with the food. There's also a lounge with liquor sales.

In this city, a new hotel is being built next to the casino. I'd definitely not return to Tropical Inn when the new hotel opens.
