Tropicana Inn and Suites
- What's Included
Our OpinionYou can't get any closer to Disneyland than this hotel. It is right across the street from the main gate to Disneyland. The rooms and facilities are basic and you'll hear the boom of the fireworks every night. If you want something cheap, basic and close, then its a good choice. Sister hotel to the Camelot Inn and Suites
My husband and I stayed at the Tropicana for our Honeymoon this past October. We chose based on price (cheap for Australian's!), location (so close to the cross walk to the parks) and availability of amenities. This was a belated honeymoon on a budget so we needed somewhere that didn't cost the earth. The rooms weren't really a factor for us given we knew a Disneymoon was going to be hard work and exhausting, so we really just needed a place to sleep and store all our purchases. We loved the short walk to the parks, we used the bus stop outside our hotel to get around locally too (hubby loves public transport, me not so much), and we used the convenience store often. In the past I have stayed at HoJo's which is just that little bit further to walk at the end of a long day. Our only negative of the trip was another guest taking our clothes out of the dryer 2 mins into the session, which was cheeky and not called for. We had left the clothes in their to dry while we got a couple of things only next door at the shop, so we hadn't ventured far! This is not a reflection on the hotel, more so on the other guests staying there. Our rooms were comfy, but quite dated so not somewhere to stay when you are looking for modern! Pool and spa were clean and much needed after walking around all day. Staff were polite but not over the top in their service.
We visit Disneyland often and have stayed at many of the Harbor Blvd hotels. This was our first time staying at the Tropicana Inn and Suites. Our group for this trip consisted of myself, my husband, and our 21-year old son. We stayed in a standard room with two queen beds. The room was about average-sized, a bit small for three adults, but not a problem since we spent most of our time at the parks. Our room had a stall shower, no tub. This was fine for us, but guests with small children might prefer to request a room with a bathtub. I did like that the sink/vanity was outside of the bathroom, allowing for the area to be used while another person was in the bathroom. We enjoyed having a refrigerator and microwave in the room, especially since the hotel does not offer breakfast. We find it easy enough to bring our own breakfast foods and eat while getting ready each morning. I did not enjoy the coffee supplied by the hotel that I made in the in-room coffee pot. On our last morning, I walked to Panera to get a good cup of coffee before hitting the road to go home. The room was generally clean, however, it could use a bit of attention. For example, if I closed the bathroom door, I could not get it to lock. I had to push the lock button before closing the door to get it to work. I also noticed that the light over the vanity did not turn on with the first flip of the switch. I had to flip it on, off, then on again to get it to work. These are not huge issues, but do show that maintenance could be a little better. The front desk clerk who checked us in was very friendly and efficient, as were the parking attendants. There were spaces available in the lot for self-parking when we arrived, so we did not use the valet services. However, the attendant was nice about directing us to an open space. I would probably stay here again, however, it might not be my first choice. The accommodations were basic, but the proximity to Disneyland is excellent.
My family and I spent the night here after a long day in Disneyland last week, in room 179.Overall I'd say the hotel fulfilled its purpose. Normally when we travel to Disneyland we stay at the Comfort Inn on Katella, but unfortunately we couldn't get a room there this time. Also, we had other family with us that wanted to be close enough to walk back to the hotel when/if their 4 year old needed a break.So, the room sufficiently covers all the basics. In fact, it has 2 good size beds which would make sharing the room easy thereby reducing costs. It had a small fridge, an alright tv, and a shower that was big enough. The AC unit worked fine. It had a chair, desk, and lounge chair and typical coffee pot. The dressing area is wide open though, so when everyone is trying to go to sleep that last person brushing their teeth, etc has the light on for them. There is a pool area which is fine and the hotel is currently undergoing some updates/renovation. The downsides - a) $15 parking fee, b) the room was $175 (much more than we normally pay) and c) there is no breakfast offered. You are definitely paying for that convenient walk. All told this means you are going to easily shell out over $200/night by the time you have breakfast and head to the park.The hotel works, and I'd recommend it for families with young children that are primarily concerned with leaving the park and coming back later after naps, etc - but for other travelers with teenagers or adult only groups much better values are available at off-site hotels from which you can easily utilize the ART system.
A long overdue review as we stayed Nov 2015 for the Super Heros marathon weekend. I obsessed for months on where to stay as I wanted a place that had a door for our nearly 2 year old to sleep away from the rest of our family. This hotel was a great experience and I do recommend it, especially as I've booked this years stay at the Camelot Inn (their sister resort). Near as I can tell there appear to only be about 3-4 of the Executive suites. Both the living room and bedroom have doors that open to small balconies overlooking Harbor Blvd. They are virtually across the street from the major entrance to Disney. The only real con is that you can hear road noise and the fireworks, but I'd say the fireworks are heard from nearly any hotel/motel along Harbor Blvd. I travel with ear plugs as I can be a light sleeper. As I recall, we were able to check in before 4, though I don't quite remember the timing. We were over the store and I believe we were on the top floor so no one above us. Baby was in a crib, big kid in the sofa bed and husband and I in the King Size bed. I was a big fan of 2 bathrooms. I could get ready for early morning runs without bothering the rest of the family. The pool is smaller than our usual Disney accommodations but my husband loved being able to play catch with my big kid in the pool while he was in the hot tub.
We had a great stay here & would definitely stay again! We arrived early & our room wasn't ready, they offered us a room on a lower floor but we decided to wait til the one we wanted was ready. They held our luggage for us so we could go on to the park (which is pretty close!). I had a hip replacement a few months before our trip & was a little tired when we got back, all three guys working in the lobby offered to carry my bag to my room which I thought was very nice of them! All of the staff that we encountered were very nice & helpful, always pleasant. Our room was nice & clean & the beds were really comfortable! We overlooked the pool but it wasn't very noisy, I'm a light sleeper & didn't have any problems with noise keeping me awake. The first morning there I discovered the hair dryer didn't work so I called the front desk & asked if we could get a new one, it wasn't even 15 min. & a guy came & replaced it for us - this was at 6:30 in the morning too! Having the store & coffee shop on site was really convenient as well. On a side note, if you're craving pizza there is a great place that is just a little bit down the street called The Pizza Press, very affordable too!
