    I have 4 nights comped at the Trop, next month. I've stayed at many other LV hotels, and condos, but never there. My question regards current status & condition. Particularly:
    • $20 trick work? or are there only check-in kiosks?
    • If I can, what type of room (location) should I ask for?
    • Are the rooms clean and maintained appropriately?
    • I know food options are minimal, but I think I'll be able to utilize my $75 food comp at breakfasts.
    I plan on using the RTC buses to get around (CX and Deuce) and the bus stops are fairly convenient.
    Can I assume gambling conditions (bartops and tables) are similar to other nearby Strip properties?

    Any other information and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Good questions. I am double booked at the Trop and PH for the first two days of our October trip. I would love to hear from others who have stayed there. The dining as you said is minimal with only one, maybe two places open during the day. If we stay there we would be walking on the strip so we won't have to keep moving the vehicle. I am curious about the availability to table games and minimums during the day. Pai Gow and High Card Flush are of interest to us.

    *$20 trick work? or are there only check-in kiosks?
    If I can, what type of room (location) should I ask for?
    -No kiosks, checkin was slow on the last visit, but not a huge line, no longer any invited guest line. No idea on tips, never done those.
    They started charging $10 a day extra for the Paradise tower. (seems silly for people they want in the casino) Paradise is right above the casino, Club tower is a bit of a hike, up short escalator then cross an indoor walkway past the pool.
    The regular tub shower rooms I've had in Paradise all had peeling paint in the tub area and at least some frayed carpet near the door.
    Received a Club tower room on a recent visit which had a better larger corner tub/shower. Fiberglass, no peeling paint. I'd try to get that type of room, wasn't extra, unless they offer you a suite.

    *Are the rooms clean and maintained appropriately?
    -Dated, thought they were clean enough, did notice women's hair on the bathroom floor on the last visit. They did clean it up the next day.

    *I know food options are minimal, but I think I'll be able to utilize my $75 food comp at breakfasts.
    -Yes, Starbucks or the main restaurant Robert Irvine Public House. Weekends have more options.

    -Can't speak to tables/bartops. Drink service is really poor at times on the floor. I think they only have one CW working the whole place at times. Much better when they have a few there.

    Fine for a free or double booked room. I wouldn't pay for a base room there.

    Don't see much changing until Bally's /Twin River takes over the gaming and hopefully does some major rehab and or demolition.

    I stayed at Tropicana back in May, and boy was I disappointed by the gaming "floor". I put quotes around floor because there is just one little pit about the size of my dining room. I received a comp there based on my play at other Hollywood properties (West Virginia). Outside of gambling there, I had a nice stay. Room was nice (I was in the Paradise tower), and had some great steaks at the steakhouse. They also had $20 beer buckets at the pool bar which I enjoyed a lot :)
