After reading many reviews we decided we would take the plunge and give it a shot. We stayed over Labor Day weekend. Overall it was just an okay experience. Great service at the front desk. The hall ways and elevator were not very clean, there is only one elevator and it is very slow, we ended up taking the steps most of the time. Very old looking rooms, especially the bathroom, it had very low drop down ceilings with rust on them and the perimeter of the bathroom was not very clean. And I have never stayed in a room where the shampoo and hair dryer were not in all rooms (they are provided after request at front desk). Our in room kitchen was also very ran down and had rust and grime in it. Parking was not bad even with it being Labor Day weekend. The pool and hot tub were very nice even though the hot tub was very small. I was glad it had two outdoor shower spots. Very good location as far as the ocean and view. Definitely a good hour+ walk to the main boardwalk, but that's not terrible since you can walk on the beach) . I would suggest changing the light bulbs on all the balconies. Our balcony light was out and so were most of them (only counted 11 working balcony lights on the whole hotel). This makes the hotel appear dark and gloomy from the beach. I would stay here again if you fix the things I mentioned above. But until they are fixed I don't know if I can recommend this hotel. As I said before just an okay hotel. Nothing bad enough to say I will never ever stay there again. This review is not to bash Tropical Seas Hotel at all as we still had a great vacation. It is just to inform everyone of some of the things I was looking for when I was booking the hotel.
