The Ultra-Crappy Tropicana Hotel Deleted My Post!

Oh noes! The Tropicana Hotel censored my post! I've never had this happen before, though it was bound to happen eventually. But I received a notification from blogger that a picture I used of the Tropicana Hotel when I mentioned I was going on vacation to Las Vegas a couple of months ago was removed due to copyright infringement. Huh. You'd think they would like the publicity. Well, they made me do it. But now I have to mention what a dump the hotel was. No, no this isn't sour grapes. This is a case of you people should be grateful I didn't trash your hotel to begin with, but now the gloves are off... The Tropicana was literally the worst hotel I have ever stayed in-- it's true. No mini-fridge, no wi-fi, no coffee pot, and we didn't even get the little tiny soaps the first day we were there. They were also remodeling the floor we were on, which likely explained the horrible condition of the rooms, but it also looked as if someone had been squatting in one of the rooms down the hall (I wish I was kidding). We weren't there long, so we didn't switch hotels, but I told my husband I'd never stay there again. And these people objected to a flattering picture of their hotel on my blog? Obviously karma wanted me to make sure no other travelers made the same mistake I did by staying at this hotel because I would never have bothered to go into such detail had they not messed with my blog. Okay, maybe there's some sour grapes here... But still, it was a lousy hotel.

NO HOTEL SOAP?! :O

When is a hotel not a hotel? When they don't have soap in the bathrooms =_=

Wilson-- Lol! It really was a crap hotel. I wouldn't have bothered to make a fuss over it if they hadn't raised a ruckus. But now they're fair game.

The last few times my wife and I have gone to Vegas (either separately or together) we actually stayed at the Hooters Hotel & Casino. She picked it, I'm not kidding, and it's really not bad as far as hotels go. It's no Bellagio, but the location is great (right across from the MGM and barely off the end of the Strip) and the rates are more than acceptable. Plus, there's a liquor store about 2 blocks away. Check it out for next time, if you can get past all the scantily clad cardboard cut-outs.

T.D.-- We may end up going back to Vegas soon so my husband can meet with a client. I'll check out Hooters. Why not?

Totally worth it. I'm not a huge fan of their Hooters' food, but cheap chicken wings are cheap chicken wings.

Yeah, we do Vegas RIGHT. LOL
