My wife and I stayed here one night early January, and we chose this hotel because it was 1) inexpensive and 2) close to SJC airport for our return home the next morning. Pros: very solid location in the historic district, a private parking lot directly adjacent, a lovely pool and central patio area. Very nice staff. If you're a... More

We spent 1 night in this hotel as the VRBO condo we had booked was double booked. This hotel was recommended to us by the condo owner. It was my husband and I and our 2 kids (aged 7 and 1). We found the hotel room barely big enough to fit us all in. The beds were tiny and hard... More

The reception desk doe not reflect the quality of the rooms. First impression was "We're in very old Mexico." But the room is modern and comfortable. After traveling for an entire day, the bed was elegant. Room noises are very minimal. Attention of staff is very positive and they will do all they can to accommodate your requests. This is... More

Stayed here for a single night on the way to Cabo. What a find!!! The hotel/inn was as charming as it could be--pool was lovely and the surrounding vegetation was wonderful. The hotel is larger than it appears with several lovely restaurants to eat, both inside and outside. The rooms, while they were not fancy, were spotless. The employees were... More

This small hotel typified what San Jose is--friendly people, quaint and clean. I was here 20 years ago for a meal, and have had friends who have stayed here over the years and just raved about it. When my reservation for a beach-front all-inclusive fell apart shortly before departure and the hotel indicated it could not accommodate us on our... More

We stayed two nights at the Tropicana our first night on an eight day trip up the road to Todos Santos and likewise the night before our flight out of Cabo at the conclusion of our vacation. This nice hotel must be about 35 years old and is built around a court yard and lovely pool. The rooms are clean... More

Baja Mexico is recovering well from the hurricane. They are working very hard to bring back tourism. This little hotel is a gem, friendly and clean. They had a mariachi band in the cantina, very nice. The only draw back was since we had our children with us, (not considered children if the are over 10, if I understood them... More

This is a great place to stay, nice quiet pool. We have stayed here many times. The Tropicana is in the heart of town so close to the great shopping and restaurants. Try to take in the Thursday nigh Art Walk, its great fun

Just spent 10 days at the Tropicana Inn in San Jose del Cabo. We have stayed here several times over the years but have not been back in 7 years. Everything was the same as I remembered. Staff are still friendly (mostly the same staff as well) Front desk girl was awesome. They have really cleaned up well since the... More
