The rooms were pretty typical, with two full size beds, a bathroom, and a walk out to the grounds (we were next to one of the pools). Both times, I originally paid between $88 and $95 a night.
But, in 1997, we had problems with our room. It had human hair on the floor and in the sink, wallpaper was peeling off one of the walls, and the entrance door had a huge gap between the door and where it was to shut and lock. I complained to the manager, and he came to the room to check it out. He agreed that all these inadequacies were present. He then offered us (and my sister, because she had a room next to us) rooms on the 20th floor, looking over the Strip. The rooms were fabulous. We had a bar area, a Jacuzzi in the master bedroom, an enormous bathroom, and a balcony overlooking the Strip. In addition, he gave us a $100 gift certificate for any of the restaurants we wanted to eat at in his hotel. We couldn't believe how generous he was in making it right. Honestly, we have settled for another room that was clean and safe. Anyway, we thanked him for Tropicana's generosity and told him we would be returning to his hotel when we visit Las Vegas.

We wandered, carrying/rolling our own bags for over 20 minutes trying to navigate through the casino, first into one tower and up the elevator, and then after asking a fellow traveler--no staff were around anywhere to ask. We managed to get into the other tower where our room was actually located.
Our room was at the end of a very long hall, down an interior ramp joining a new addition to an older building, around the corner, and then down another long hall. Thank goodness we did discover a closer elevator to the back parking lot on this trek. Parking was ample and free though a long way to the front of the hotel. The hallways smelled like an old hotel--maybe smokey.
Our room was clean and adequate but rather outdated in the ultra up-to-the-minute glitzy world of Las Vegas. The furnishings were clean and pleasant, with two queen beds and large windows overlooking the grounds and the Luxor in the distance. The bathroom was clean, light, bright, and adequate. Considering the price we paid for this room, the accommodations were adequate. The inside of the room was actually better than the hallways in the hotel.
I'm not sure I'd stay at the Tropicana again, we did this time because it was the site of the convention we attended, but it met our needs just fine. Mostly I wonder about the internal out-of-sight safety/fire safety features being up to date when the public areas seen by all are not that modern. I think they need a face lift.

There are three sections to the hotel, the Island Tower, Paradise Tower and the Garden Wing. I have stayed the the Paradise Tower a number of times.
The Paradise Tower is the tower located closest to the casino. Each room is equipped with a refrigerator, iron and ironing board, and hair dryer. Views face the north or south to the Las Vegas Strip. The rooms have one king bed or two queen beds. Be sure to request a room away from the elevators and ice machine. We had a room once next to the elevators and you could hear the elevator chains clanging all night.
There are a few pools and an indoor pool with swim-up blackjack. Throughout the grounds there are also waterfalls, hot tubs and lovely gardens.
The Tropicana is home to the Folies Bergere, one of Las Vegas''s longest running stange shows. There is also a magician show and a comedy show.
There are six restaurants, ranging from a buffet, coffee shop, and steakhose. Have eaten at the buffet and the coffee shop, they were both fine but nothing outstanding.
Be sure to check out the ceiling in the casino over the gaming tables, it is stained glass and very beautiful.
While the hotel itself is fine to stay at, it is unremarkable compared to its neighbours which all have themes.

We ate breakfast at their buffet and it was very good. Omelets and eggs made to order with all of the usual breakfast items.
Next to their buffet, they had a free bird show and my granddaughter loved it. In the casino, they had a free show called "Air Play", which consisted of singers, dancers and acrobats. The shows were very entertaining.
I like to play BlackJack, but for a hotel this size, they don't have many tables. At night their $5 black jack tables disappeared.
The Tropicana advertised that if you joined the "Winners Club" and after you gambled for 2 hours that you would receive two show tickets to the Rick Thomas Magic Show and the Folies Bergere. The next day I went back to get my tickets and was told that because I applied for a "Winners Club" card 2 years ago, I didn't qualify, because it was for new members only.
