Do Your Part to Help the Earth at Our Environmentally Friendly Hotels

At Tropical Inns, we strive for each of our hotels to not only serve as a relaxing beachfront abode, but also as an environmentally friendly lodging option. When you stay at a Tropical Inns resort, you can be certain your environmental impact will be minimized by the steps we take at each of our environmentally friendly hotels.

We officially established our company’s Good Environmental Practices and created a “Green Team” of staff members in early 2008. An employee from each department was given the task of overseeing environmentally friendly practices and recycling programs at our green hotels. At check-in, we provide you with a Welcome Sheet including information on in-room recyclable materials and other details of our recycling program.
