Reviewed 28 June 2018

I have often stayed at Tropicana in Atlantic City, and I have listed the good qualities of the casino and hotel.
I am now changing my opinion about the hotel.
In the past, I have stayed in the south tower. This is easily accessible to the lobby where you check in for a hotel room, and easy walking into the casino floor near the South Tower or a short walk to the North Tower. When the South tower was being renovated, I stayed in the North Tower and the walk was manageable.
I walk with a walker, so any distance walking is not an easy task.

This recent trip to Tropicana, I was told, there is an UP-Grade fee to stay in the North Tower and a much higher upgrade fee to stay in the South Tower. These fees are not temporary.

My only choice was to stay in The West tower. I knew this would be difficult, but I had no idea how difficult for a handicapped person.
After walking from South Tower elevator through main passage of the casino, you must go past the fountain toward the West Tower, going up hill and downhill. This may be lovely to look at, but it is a challenge for any one with walking issues. Once you go past most of the shops leading to the West Tower, you must then turn left and go down a very, very long ramp. Following that trek, you go through a carpeted walkway that is mostly uphill. People who were not handicapped were out of breath as they finally reached the elevator.

Needless to say, once leaving the room for dining and casino play, we would not chance returning to the room until bedtime. That is how arduous the walk is.
I do no plan to pay the upgraded fee (which was about $110 for taxes and upgrades for two nights), so I will not be staying at Tropicana again.I

Recently stayed at hotel for 5 nights. Visited the quarter for meals and shopping. Both was a welcomed surprise. Prices were not outrageous for either. Would consider visiting this area again soon.
