Could be much better

This was my second visit here. I stayed in a different tower thN the last time. I like the restaurants there. However there was no hot water prior to my checkout. My sheets had a hole in it when I arrived. Also shortly after I checked in as I was putting my clothes away, someone from maintenance knocked on the door. Someone reported a loose toilet seat?? I said I don't know. I just checked in. I'll only be a few minutes. He did his job & left. The mattress needs replacing. It's had better days. The basic cable could have more channels instead of doubles of pretty much channel except HBO. I'm not sure if I'm coming back. I guess it's time to try somewhere different.

Poor customer service

Staying on a Friday night is not recommended, security guards stationed at hotel elevators hassle all staying customers for room keys. Extremly unfriendly and unprofessional.

Very Frustrating Hotel Experience

The Tropicana is your basic Atlantic City hotel. The location is fine and amenities in the hotel are great. There are a ton of restaurants, bars, and shops. Aside from that there is nothing else redeeming about this hotel. I found they treated their guest with very little respect. They recently implemented a policy in which every person who wanted to go to hotel tower required a key. I understand a policy where one person in the group would need a key, but for every single person to have their own key is absurd. This policy was beyond frustrating as we had friends staying in a neighboring hotel who weren't allowed to come up to our room. In addition to ridiculous policies surrounding keys, the elevator situation at the tropicana is awful. Checkout is 11am and to get an elevator around that time would take 30 min to 1 hour. During regular hours elevators would take around 10-15 minutes. I cannot believe they would build a hotel without enough elevators to accommodate all of the rooms. For the amount we paid per night they really should have better service.

Pleasant brief stay

My wife and I made a brief stop in Atlantic City and enjoyed our stay at the Tropicana. The hotel was conveniently located, and and the room was comfortable and well priced. Service was fine, arguably better than during our last visit. We would certainly consider staying here again.
