Always our favorite! Clean, comfortable bed. Nice staff. Walk across the street to Disneyland. IHOP, Panera, Mc Donald’s and Denny’s a couple businesses down. Staff is always very wel and accommodating.
Great place for the whole family to stay. Swimming pool in the center.

The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything going on outside from cars, to rolling luggage to people talking. The beds were uncomfortable and the pillows flat. Our air conditioner was not working and it only stayed on for a second then shut off. So it was hot in the room and made it even more difficult to sleep at night. I only got 4 hours of interrupted sleep.
The worst part is that I called the hotel before booking the room to see if guests can leave their car parked on the day of check out and was told yes by the front desk as long as I paid another nightly parking rate. I was fine with this because the whole point of staying the night here was to have easier access to Disneyland and avoid the parking structure. Well on my check-out day, I was told I couldn't leave my car because there was no room... We ended up having to rush and park at the Disneyland parking structure anyways. We didn't end up arriving at Disneyland until 2 1/2 hours after opening. Staying at the Tropicana was a big waste of my money. I only live 1/2 hour from Disneyland and the only reason I booked this room was for easier access to Disneyland. The front desk needs to be honest with people who call about the parking. I should have been told that parking was based on availability and not flat out yes. If I knew there was a chance I couldn't leave my car for the day, I would have NEVER booked this room.
I wouldn't be upset if the room was at least comfortable, but my family didn't even get a good night's sleep, which caused a tiring day of walking around the parks the next day.

This was my first time staying at this hotel and I was very happy with my stay. I was traveling with a service dog and they were very accommodating with my room request which I appreciated. Very close to Disneyland which is what I was looking for. The only downside was the lack of towel racks in the bathroom (even more hooks would be helpful) and the bed was sinking on the side against the nightstand. I was alone in the bed so could just scoot to the middle and it was fine, but if my husband had been with me it would have made for a sleepless night with trying not to roll out of bed. My daughter said her bed was fine. I'll be back next month for another stay!
Close to Disney ?

We chose the Tropicana for our stay while visiting A Touch of Disney. Quick walk across the street. I was disappointed that their mini mart was closed, but it’s understandable at this time. Even the McDonalds is closed so you know it’s bad. They do have a vending machine for sodas and water. The room was clean and had everything we needed. I liked that they got rid of the lamps and had a dimmer switch for the overhead lighting. I think in this day we could lose the alarm clock. It’s just a bright annoying light at this point. I always unplug first thing. Maybe keep a few for request, but I believe most people have smart phones now. The curtains didn’t keep the bright outside light completely out. I’ve found this is hard for most hotels in the area and definitely a minus.
We were on the top floor and didn’t hear a thing except for excited kids in the pool. But that’s ok. The pool area was clean, not sure if the pool is heated. It was warm enough to swim in on the day we were there. Big spa too.
The check in/out staff were friendly. They let me check in early which was much appreciated. I would stay here again. It’s so convenient to the DLR and even nicer when their store is up and running.
A prime spot for anyone who wants to be right next to the park without having to pay for official Disney hotel rooms.

It's a great hotel if you just need a bed to sleep in and a shower to clean up with. Nothing fancy but figuring that I barely spent any time in this room except to sleep and shower it wasn't a real issue. The 5-minute walk to the park made it great especially early afternoons when my daughter needed to take a nap to recharge for the end of the day. plus if I forgot to bring anything or needed to put something back in the room it wasn't a huge hassle just cross the street and be back to the park before my family was able to get on the first ride.
Staff is pleasant and quick to respond to requests (extra sheets). I'm pretty low maintenance so any kind of courtesy is appreciated by me.
My room was strictly a shower, not a tub, so if my daughter was a bit younger I might have resorted to picking up a large plastic tub at Target two blocks down the road for the sake of baths.
There's a couple of decent restaurants that are easy walking distance including the ever-safe McDonald's and a pretty fair taqueria
This is definitely going to be my go-to spot from now on
