"Poorly managed dump" Tropicana Las Vegas - A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Tip by luandtom

Tropicana Las Vegas - A DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, Las Vegas: 10,694 reviews and 23 photos

This hotel is old and in an advanced state of disrepair (the facade is crumbling, wall paper peels from the walls of the rooms and the bathrooms are moldy). However, its location on the strip might justify the hefty room cost if it was not so poorly managed. The pool area is attractive (nicely landscaped with a large pool) and might be a nice place to relax on a warm afternoon, except that the management?s policy is to blast jackhammer music in the outdoor area from 10AM to 6PM. How loud is it? Sufficiently loud so that I could not hear my wife banging on the door of our room when she inadvertently locked herself out. We had a room on a non-smoking floor, but the policy is lightly enforced (the people in the room next to ours smoked). Housekeeping is indifferent and it is difficult to find staff when you need a missing towel, glasses or ice bucket. Forget about calling the front desk to complain, they have minimal staff on duty and the telephone in the room doesn?t work anyway. We checked out a day early (we paid for three nights and stayed two) and changed our airline reservations (at an additional cost) to escape.
