We saw Folies and it was the only good thing at this place. The whole casino smells bad and was dirty. Self parked in the back and had to walk thru the hotel. It stunk and was very dirty. Glad we didn't stay there! Slots were tight.
Bought our show tickets at a half price place and took them to the box office for exchange. (This is the way half price tix works) The box office lady was rude. Our seats were in the center but far back and I had trouble seeing the show. A man in front of us kept putting his arms up. I don't know why. The attendants were of no help and walked up and down the rows all during the show. They were very distracting. The show itself was wonderful. Dancers are very talented.
Other than to see Folies, I suggest skipping this casino and hotel.
Tropicana is a beatiful, golden, rich atmosphere with all of the excitement and charm of the old style vegas, that the average guy can enjoy at a reasonable price!
Great atmosphere, great personable servers, great gaming tables, with $5 min and up, and one of the most beautiful casino ceilings you will ever see.
The Dirk Arthur Magic Show is a great family value, in a wonderful, personal auditorium. The restaurants are very reasonable and the hotel is a good overall value, and has some nice amenities, for the value price.
If you come to Vegas on a budget, looking for quality, this one is for you!
We recently stayed three nights at the Tropicana taking advantage of an offer that my wife got in the mail. During the 11-11-11 week we got a free three night stay and $25 free play each day. We were also able to get the second half of our initial losses back from our first visit here earlier this year.. So in total, I got my $50 free play and my wife got $100 free play. The new rooms were very nice and we were so close to the strip that one day we just walked to the MGM Grand, the New York New York and the Excalibur casinos.
We visited the Tropicana Casino this year after the re-modeling and took advantage of the promotion that returned up to $100 in losses for new club members. We got back half of our losses that day and will get the rest back on our next visit this year.
My wife and I were in Vegas early in October.She always liked going down to the Trop and last year when we were there, it was undergoing remodeling.WOW! We were so surprised at the casino! It is beautiful! Glimmering and shiny new! We don't stay there but man...very impressed! I asked about further projects and security told me all the food venues were in the process of being revamped.Rooms are supposedly being redone and spruced up also. Might actually think about staying there next trip! It is looking good!!
