Compared to many other hotels on the Strip, you can see from the outside that the Tropicana needs some help, or a date with the dynamite. There are some cool features, like the swim up blackjack table in the pool, and the location. The Tropicana is located close to the MGM, Mandalay, Hooters, NYNY, Luxor and Excaibur. The casino layout is very tight to walk through and very confusing. For the right price, it could be worth staying here. They really should take some ques from the Tropicana Atlantic City on how to update the place!
