Dinner took 2 hours to prepare, there were no towels in the room, the shower worked if it wanted too, the tv didn't work, the Internet was down. They over charged me on the bill when checking out. Service sucks, lucky I only stayed the one night. Not staying there again...

Met a very pleasant lady at the reception and got rooms for our stay.We insisted to look at the rooms and noted that the rooms were very comfortable but noted that the paint was peeling off.Bath tubs were chipped...

After showing up on the spot after touring 10+ other hotels in Masaka, we decided on the Tropic Inn. The staff was more than happy to show us an array of rooms and negotiate price. Throughout our month long stay, the staff was always friendly, available, and conscience of our needs. As for the rooms, they were all we needed....

Though from the road, it is nice looking and convenient, once you get inside you will be unhappy... the 'free internet' only works in the lobby (great when working privately!!!). Though there are 100+ rooms, they only have 4 fans, that are 'in use by other occupants.' The service is fake and as soon as you leave they start talking...

The outward appearance looked very good, they have a beautiful yard. But then I saw the rooms, we had one room which had a huge dark spot on that came from a water-pipe burst, but they didn't painted the wall.the other rooms were average. For the mosquito nets and towels we had to ask, and also for shower curtains which...

This hotel is just big but does not offer anything else. After booking rooms upon arrival in the late afternoon we were told that rooms were not ready, in reality they had to check in which rooms water was available and it took quite some time to find it out. I was put in a very large suite that looked...

Although we had confirmed reservations by phone only 2 days before arriving, we were told on arriving that they had no record of our rooms.
