    Never set foot in there, staying a couple of nights in May. After watching about 50 youtube videos i get the gist of the place, apparantly they have mature landscaping (so do I) but dont get which tower or room to ask for. That and any other info would be much appreciated.

    Sort of three different towers. The tower closest to the casino is the Paradise Tower, the second tower,the Club Tower is a good walk from the casino. Lastly, the Bungalow Rooms are the original rooms from when the Trop was built. The Paradise tower is the most eclectic of the three, with the other two looking like your typical Doubletree found anywhere. The bathroom ceilings in the bungalows are just over 6 feet high. A bit claustrophobic.

    sorry to sound so negative, but my only help would be to tell you to stay elsewhere. unless of course, the room is fully comped with no resort fee.

    I'm going with VegasDev as well. I stayed at the Tropicana about 2 years ago. I got a very nice suite in the Club Tower, but it was a very long hike from the strip. The only thing good I can say about the property is they have a nice pool.

    Food options are slim, no real retail for shopping, the casino is tiny, and I mean tiny! I stayed on a comp so I tried my best to concentrate my play there. But I got bored after an hour.

    I actual think they are in the middle of tearing down whats left of their motel style rooms (Bungalow) so you'd get the towers by default.

    I like the place but I haven't stayed at it since Penn bought it a couple of years ago. I like that the casino is on the smaller side. I like that it's not a "mega resort". The pool area is great. I'm fine with limited shopping, that's not why I'm in Vegas. I like the location, I prefer that end of the strip. I remember when the Trop was all alone, a mile down the road from anything else. The rooms are decent, there are certainly better rooms elsewhere. If the price is right the Trop is a good value.

    Yeah Penn bought it and is suppose to be sinking $100 million into it, not sure if that has started. Rooms I hear are fine but I have not stayed, I hated the casino.

    I stayed there back in September, and the Club tower (the one in the back; bit of a walk from the casino but I'm young and healthy-ish. YMMV.) was the one with all the new renovations. The Paradise and Bungalow rooms may have been updated since; I have no idea. The rooms weren't swanky by any means, but they were clean and tastefully decorated. The casino floor wasn't huge, but it had enough going on to keep me entertained for a long weekend. My favorite quality about the place was that despite being centrally located on the Strip during a holiday weekend, it wasn't crowded. At all. It wasn't a ghost town either, but I never had to wait a long time for anything-- not for drinks, not for machines or tables or the cashier, not for pool chairs. Their current underdog status is arguably the best thing about it.

    Stayed in Paradise Towers a while back. Originally got assigned Club Towers but problem in room got us upgraded. Would have hated that rediculous long walk to the room every night. MGM West Wing is a quicker option.

    Wouldn't worry about size of the casino. MGM and Excalibur are literally across the bridge.

    A lot of years ago the Trop was the first casino to send us any type of room offers -- casino rate or comped. We took them up on their offers and stayed there three or four times even through the depths of their decline. There was a time when they had trapeze acts performing above the pit. The best thing about the whole place is the Tiffany-style ceiling that was above the pit. I believe the stained glass is still there but the pit has been moved out of the area to be replaced with slots.

    For a long time the biggest bet I ever made was walking up to a BJ table and placing $100 on the spot on the table to play a hand. Not surprisingly, I lost that bet and have been much more conservative ever since.

    The Trop was probably the earliest causative factor in our addiction to Vegas.

    My biggest complaint is that their VP is horrible. My most memorable time there was seeing Rich Little at the Laugh Factory. Their sports book is pretty nice, too.

    Stayed there as part of a "staycation" in Feb. Just like everyone else said, long walk to the rooms. Spa is very limited...in fact, it is not a spa, but rather a room with some machines. We planned to play there, but the VP options were so limited we walked over to the Excalibur. Given the location and casino environment, there is no reason to go back. You should check out the M which is much farther south, but offers much, much more in terms of food and gaming choices.
