Default Re: Tropicana AC a dump?

Its pretty bad.

No game selection, crappy rooms, nasty crack whore waitresses who will bring you beer in a 6 oz plastic cup, dirty rooms, bad dealers, and a parking garage that may or may not collapse on you. So yeah I would stick to Borgata.

I stayed there, but didn't play there.

I thought the room was fine, save for the fact that that the bathroom was set up such that one the shower curtain was pulled you blocked the only source of light in the room and thus showered in dim lighting.

The Taj hotel rooms are a dump. Trop was just fine, even in the old rooms.

Agreed. Trop isn't Borgata, but it ain't bad. If Borg is a 9, old rooms are a 6, new 7 (just for "newness", really). Not any great features, but perfectly fine.

Biggest knock on the new tower is distance from the casino. You have to walk entirely through the Quarter to get to the tower elevators. Luckily, the poker room is one of the closer casino points to the Quarter.

I've stayed in the old wing at the Trop and the rooms are in serious need of renovation. However, the Quarter is very nice and there are lots of nice bars and restaurants. Incidentally, Aztar's other property, the Trop in Las Vegas is a serious dump. Hope you have a good time.

Make sure to get a room in the West Tower. It's the one put up most recently before the Havana Tower, and is still in OK shape - I've always enjoyed staying there. The North tower rooms are horrible and should be avoided.

The poker room is fine, but the clients include a contingency of bums that shouldn't be allowed in. I've had to leave games because of unbearable sweat & urin odors on several occasions.

Best,

McMelchior (Johan)

Thanks for the advice. Do I need to phone ahead to make sure I get a West Tower room do you think?

Some other questions for while I'm there - which of the new poker rooms should I check out? I don't really care too much about game selection - nice chairs, chips, waitresses and drinks service are what I'm after (other than the Borgata). Proximity to the Trop would be a bonus.

And a key follow-up question - does the Caesar's poker room serve bottled beer?

The Showboat/House of Blues new room is very nice. Great chairs and ok wait service.

Ceasars room is ok and I found the staff to be friendly. They are running a WSOP event soemtime during the 1st quarter so they have been working on improving the quality of their dealers. Sorry can't remember about the beer.

Ballys has a nice room but the dealers don't understand poker or english.
