I was to a Hawaiian party in Tropicana! Excellent organization, wonderful food, great dance show! Very friendly staff. One of my best nights in Vegas, I recommend seeing it!!! Other party in Tropicana was on swimming pool at night, nice cocktails and great guests.

Tropicana has taken a number of measures to establish itself as a LGBT-friendly hotel, including making donations to the Human Rights Campaign and becoming a corporate member of the Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. But perhaps the best part of this hotel's gay-friendly initiatives is the fact that it hosts the Sin City Shootout, the largest annual LGBT sporting event in North America.Recommended for:

The Tropicana was recently renovated, and they changed quite a bit. It has become much nicer than what it used to be under the previous management. The location is hard to beat, across the street from MGM Grand, NYNY, and Excalibur. I heard the new pool party was worth checking out.

The only reason to stay here is the POOL!!
so obviously go in the summer.
The restaurants are all mediocre,service is not great and the casino has bad ventillation.
So bad that if you do step in the casino for 20 seconds you will reek from head to toe.
I live in Vegas and have experienced a lot this needs to to torn down and redone.
EXCEPT for the pool...Recommended for:

Things have been looking up at the Tropicana for over a year now. Totally renovated rooms have a splash of Miami style, with bright sunset colors and chaise longues in the bedroom. Rates are a bargain, given the pretty great location on the Strip. The casino doesn't give great odds for gamblers, but the restaurants are above-average (like Bacio for Italian or Biscayne Steakhouse) and the zany Mob Attraction is entertaining enough.
Tip: Like 'em on Facebook or follow 'em on Twitter for super room sales, which sometimes include VIP Breeze Check-In.Recommended for:

Ok James Bond Fans. The interior to James Bonds super swanky suite in Diamonds Are Forever, is in The Tropicana, or should I say was. This place has been redone so many times that the actual room does not exist any more. Check it out anyway! Also if you follow me (Jay Amernick) on Social Cam I have a James Bond Diamonds Are Forever Video Location Guide! Live it up you are in Las Vegas for cryin’ out loud!

We love the Tropicana we even got married here. Great pool. Go visit Thomas the bartender (near the escalator to MGM) he makes the best Bloody Mary's. Lots of fun times here. Nice rooms and a some good places to eat. They treat you well here.

This is just a really old hotel, not at all impressive, I suspect they will get rid of it sometime soon, if you are looking for a place to stay during conference time, this would be a cheap option that is likely to still have vacancies closer to the conference dates.

Tropicana is actually not a bad hotel since it has a decent location and plenty of walk ways to other casinos. This is mostly a location casino with decent rooms since the suites are much cheaper than can be had at a higher star rated place in Vegas.
However, you're really getting a closer to downtown experience here. Body World was here once, that was weird. The drinks are cheap, especially late night. The late night specials are dirt cheap, and the hotel smells like one big cigarette. The waitresses are ... mmm... and the minimums are low but don't expect any grandeur.
Staying here while staying on the strip would be one of my last choices only because ... I'd rather pay dirt cheap for ... what I expect dirt cheap to be, or I would go spendy with a nicer place to get more luxuries. Sleeping on a hard bed inebriated or not is not really great since either way you wake up with back pain.

Don't stay here. I mean, unless you want the hotel that's absolutely closest to the airport (well, technically that's the Hard Rock)... ok, unless you want the hotel that's closest to the airport and still on the strip...
My girlfriends booked this place and I stayed with them one night. Yikes. It's really dated, and the hallways are a bit, redrum. They said they booked it because it's cheap, but then later I found out what they paid and told them what I was paying at Planet Hollywood (like $5 more), they all screamed.
Anyway, call around, book somewhere else. Only book here if it's last resort!

So, a few friends and I decided to be cheap and come to a hotel in Vegas that was cheap. That was something that I regret to this day. The hotel room is alright, slightly better grade than a motel 6. The room felt a bit dirty though. It didn't look like it was dirty, but it sure felt dirty.
The casino itself was OK. There are a wide range of tables and slots. The are one of the very few casinos on the strip that has $5 tables. Not many, but some.
What made this a freakish trip was actually what happened during our stay.
We were walking down the hall back to our room. We saw this African American guy walking down the hallway. As he was stumbling down the hallway, I noticed that his skin was glimmering. I realized that it looks kind of like blood (hard to see because of his skin color). I was like, wow, this guy did really good on the bloody makeup. I he got closer, I realized that it was too real, and it was still gushing out. I was like "WTF?!?!? He got attacked?" We ended up trying to help him get some help. But, apparently he got smashed in the face by a bottle and mugged in the parking lot of the hotel. The same lot we parked our car.
At the end, I will never stay here again.
