Is The Tropicana Across From Disneyland A Hit Or Miss?

So when we visited Disneyland, I knew we probably couldn't afford to stay at any of the Disney hotels on property. The cheapest option was the Pixar Place Hotel, but it was still a little out of our range. 

But it's okay! If you're in the same boat as us, there are tons of hotels right across from Disneyland. 

I went for the cheapest one. 

We stayed at the Tropicana Inn & Suites, which is located at a prime spot right across the street from Disneyland. Just because it's less expensive, doesn't mean it's filthy. We found everything to be clean and appreciated the retro vibes. 

As indicated by the name, can get suites as well if you need more space. There are also park view suites available, plus rooms with kitchens. 

And yes, some might say the rooms are basic, but if you're like us and don't spend much time in the hotel room, it's worth it. We don't need any fancy furniture. 

We got the two queen room:

The mattresses worked well for us. Some reviews stated guests thought the mattresses were too hard or too soft, but they were fine. Mind you, we are not picky people. 

There were some cute touches:

There is no bath, but we're all okay with showers. The shower got hot, which is always a win for me, but the pressure was lacking. However, since I could actually get the water steaming hot, I didn't mind. I hate when I go to hotels and the water comes out lukewarm. 

Another issue is no USB charging spots so bring the cubes that have multiple slots. I made sure to do this and we were fine. 

Natalie was a huge fan of the mirror. Great lighting!

There's a small store attached the hotel called The Cove if you forgot basics and you can find cheaper water bottles there if you don't want to pay park prices. Yes, you can bring your own food and water into Disneyland. And yes, there is a pool, but we never used it. 

There are also food places to dine at next to the Tropicana. There was a McDonalds a few steps down. If you don't want to pay park food prices, go here! (I also noticed an IHOP and a Mexican spot.) Since we had to leave the hotel room by 11 on check out day, we headed to McDonald's for breakfast and hung out there until it was time to head to the airport. 

I recommend the Tropicana if you don't need anything fancy. If you're like us and just use it to sleep, it'll work! 

Check online because when I booked, I got a free day since I paid for 4 days. I believe currently you can get some money off if you book so many days.  

Everyone that I spoke with were polite and housekeeping did come every day to take out the trash and replace towels if needed. 

It was so convenient at the end of the day when we were all exhausted from walking around the parks to just have to walk across the street to our room. 

We'd certainly stay here again and I would recommend it to others planning on visiting Disneyland, so it was a hit for us.

  9. Last year I have spent my holidays at the Tropicana which is located across Disneyland and trust me this place is a hit. The place is great and can be easily accessed because it is just a walking distance from the park and the rooms were very clean and had comforts.
