5/5 Excellent

I forget San Antonio is really awesome.

I was in for a quick overnighter but wanted downtown access. El Tropicano was a great choice. The price for the room was great but be aware whether you self serve park or valet the price is $31. The restaurant, Ocho, is within stumbling distance. Great food and amazing atmosphere.

The property looks old and outdated for the price and location. Rooms are to small fir the price as well. Have stayed in better hotels for less the amount.
