The frontdesk gave me the worst room.
This is the worst place I have ever stayed in. I have stayed at not-so-posh places before and I was OK with that, but the attitude of the front-desk staff (specifically a guy called Pragnash and another guy whose name I don't know) made this a much worse experience. One of the guys was checking a couple into one of the rooms. He was trying to figure out their room rates for them for two nights. He had to step out in between to move his car. So another guy continued their check in process and told them their total for two nights is $884 including tax. The couple was taking out their cash to pay them and a few seconds later the first guy returned. He asked the other staff "Did you tell them their rates?". The other guy said yes. He shook his head and said "It's OK" and told the couple the total is $915 and of course the couple started fighting. Eventually they ended up paying only $885 but it seemed like they will try to swindle if they can. The prices are not fixed and they'll try to negotiate with you to get the max. they can. We paid $400 for a night and there was no iron in our room, there was always a few guys shouting/fighting outside our room even in the middle of the night, and staff is extremely rude. Totally not worth it!
Location (immediately across the street from Tropicana) was perfect. Able to walk back and forth into the casino.
continental breakfast- not much fruit or choices. Shitty coffee.... not that big of a deal though
I liked the cheap price
The bathroom was freezing...and parts of my room looked dilapidated...such as an old sink...broken bathroom window (which allowed freezing air to come into the bathroom).
Clean, convenient, close to beach, free continental breakfast.
Prostitutes hanging around in the evening and at night.
Easy to book through the website. Check-in was simple. The hours for check-out were nice.
Toilet kept getting clogged.
The motel was very nice and clean. we liked the location that was steps away from the Tropicana. the front desk attendents were very curtious. We would definetly stay there again.
It was right next to the casino
