Tropicana Las Vegas Offers Free Shuttle Service to M Resort and Vice Versa

Guests of Tropicana or M Resort can now take a free shuttle between the two Las Vegas resorts.

The two hotel-casinos are now sister resorts, both owned by Penn National Gaming, so this is a sweet perk if you like either or both of these destinations. Penn National Gaming bought Tropicana for $360 million.

The free shuttle will pick up and drop off at the north entrance of Tropicana Las Vegas (pictured below), and at The M’s valet area.

Tropicana

The ride to M Resort from Tropicana should take about 20 minutes. Unless it’s raining, then it’ll be upwards of two hours, because Las Vegas drivers.

The free shuttles run every few hours, departing M Resort at noon, 2:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 10:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. The shuttle departs Tropicana at 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 10:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.

The official resort Web sites say the shuttles are reserved for hotel guests, but slip the driver a few bucks and we’re pretty sure you’re cool either way. This is Vegas, not Provost.

Here’s the schedule in visual form, since you totally just skimmed the schedule we went to the trouble of typing, above.

The shuttle schedule is set at irregular intervals to avoid needless “convenience” or “ease of remembering.”

Here’s the shuttle information on the Tropicana site, and on the M Resort site. It’s refreshing to see somebody on their Web team has their act together. One of the benefits of corporate centralization, no doubt.

It’s worth noting Tropicana also has free shuttle service to the Town Square shopping center. Don’t take that shuttle by mistake. There’s no gambling at Town Square. But nobody’s perfect.

While Tropicana and M Resort may be connected by ownership and free shuttle service, the resorts don’t yet share a common loyalty club, but that’s in the works. In time, both will be part of Penn National Gaming’s Marquee Rewards.

M Resort

M Resort can do no wrong with us. Each year, they host Joy Prom, giving people with intellectual disabilities an incredible night of food, dancing and a red carpet experience. Learn more.

We expect to see more guests using the Trop-to-M shuttle than the other way around (except to get back to the Trop), mainly because M Resort tends to serve a locals.

If you’re staying at Tropicana and need something to entice you to M Resort, look no further than The M’s conspicuously-endowed cocktail waitresses. Wait, buffet. The M’s Studio B Buffet. That’s totally what we meant.

    Good move. The M is a nice property but when you stay there you must stay there due to its remote location. Now you will be able to get to the strip easily.

    Love the trop but ADORE the M Resort!!!! Would love to stay but I rather b on strip. M Resort has my heart though.

    • The M is awesome. Location makes my visits rarer than I’d like, though.

    A bit off topic but someone said a while ago that the Tropicana looks like a hospital and this pic does look eerily like a hospital and its ER entrance. I’m not saying they need to implode the Tropicana and start over but a redesign needs to be in its future.

    • Unlikely, but possible. Penn is investing in behind-the-scenes stuff at the moment, but they promise other improvements down the road.
