The Tropicana is a cheap hotel located very close to the center of the strip. It is easy to access any of the other major hotels from it, so you will be able to get anywhere you need to go. The best thing about the Tropicana is the tables. They offer $5 blackjack all day and unlike some of the other hotels they have several tables so you will be able to get on one with no more than a 10-20 minute wait depending on how busy the time is. They also have a very nice sportsbook area with several large big screen TVs so you can watch every sport imaginable and bet on it - their sports area rivals that of the biggest hotels.
They have a decent buffet, it's not the best but it's also not terribly expensive - you can get the breakfast buffet for like $8 a person, the lunch buffet for $12.50 and the dinner buffet for $15. There is a good selection of food at all 3 buffets and I definitely felt full and satisfied when I left so I had no complaints.
Actually staying in the hotel is less of a joy then simply visiting it to do some gambling or eating. First, they lack some of the amenities that the other hotels have like the fancy swimming pools and stuff. The rooms are also what I would describe as sub-par. The carpet is kind of dirty. The furniture and bedspreads look old, faded, and dated. The rooms kind of had a vaguely unpleasant odor about them. You felt like they were clean enough, but just barely.
Overall, I would recommend you stop in at the Tropicana to eat there, but I would definitely suggest you find some place else to stay. If you look on some of the online sites you can find really good deals for some of the really nice hotels, especially if you go during the week, and I don't think it's worth putting up with the less-than-stellar accommodations at the Tropicana for the slightly lower price.
