The best thing about the Tropicana Inn is its location - right on the main street in San Jose, near the plaza. That said, there are other positives: it's clean, friendly, and has fairly well equipped rooms, including Wi-fi and a small fridge. However, as one who uses a cane, I did not find it easy getting in and out...

Tropicana is lovely, and pretty welcoming when you first arrive. The rooms are pretty no-frill, but clean, and well stocked. The bed was hard and small for a couple. Consider that the 2- bed, room is closer the two full beds, not queens. Also, not sure if it was from walking around San Jose, but I left with bug bites...

LOVED staying here. The hotel is right in the center of town so you can walk everywhere. The guests mingle at the pool and become acquainted, not a stand offish place at all. Genuine staff that care, no need to get tags for your bag they know everyone and the owner is onsite. To top it off it's got one...

I stayed here on a recent girls trip and we enjoyed our stay. Clean and simple, nice pool area. The only thing I want to mention is we were NOT told that the front of the restaurant/hotel doors are locked at 11:30pm. Imagine our surprise when we returned late to see a sign on the door saying locked and to...

For years, San Jose del Cabo has been referred to as the quainter, more authentic Mexican sister town to Cabo San Lucas. That may still be true...but not as true as it used to be. San Jose del Cabo is rapidly morphing into Cabo North. I was last here 16 years ago and only the tiny core area around this...

I arrived after driving to Todos Santos to stay at a private inn for my ten days....The owner was horribly mean, so I left. The people that drove me told me not to fret and that they would find me something at least for a night or two until I got my bearings. The front desk manager was so kind...

We always enjoy going to the Tropicana for lunch or dinner when we are in San Jose. Great food at reasonable prices. The fajitas are expecially good. Enjoy the strolling musicians while eating on the patio in great surroindings!

I've stayed here two times in the past 2 years as a hotel to stay at for the Cabo Half Marathon. The starting line is right out the front door. It has a pool for a great place to cool down after the race, a large parking lot with safe car parking, and a nice little courtyard jus steps from...

I hesitate to give too glowing a review because I'm afraid with a lot of great reports Tropicana would become too busy and over-run with people. I say that a little tongue in cheek though. Tropicana is a fantastic hotel and deserves the kudos it has earned. This hotel isn't for you if you are looking for big and flashy...

I booked the Tropicana Inn for a recent trip for my parents. They really liked the hotel, found the staff helpful and friendly, especially Mario. Breakfasts were good and generous and is in a great location. They said the only minor hitch was lack of hot water in the shower. They wouldn't hesitate to recommend it!
