We stayed for our wedding night and getting to the garage to park with zero direction was awful. Then we get there no one is there to assist. It's all stairs. We got to our room that was underwhelming. Moving on to the noisey night followed by the painters and construction that morning. We didn't even sleep it just wanted... More

The hotel bathroom was in very poor shape. Leaky faucet, and rusty stopper. Shower also had problems. Bed was clean, but very high off the floor. The noisy train across the street woke us up at night. Bad location in our opinion, and hotel priced too high for the poor maintenance of this hotel. Definitely needs a face lift. Not... More

We spent two nights here and were not impressed. The room was somewhat rundown. The mini fridge was rusted and sitting on the floor, not enclosed in any way. Our room looked out onto a balcony where there were tables IMMEDIATELY on the other side of our window, 2 feet from our bed. We got to hear everyone's conversation as... More

Close to the beach, and great restaurants, rooms clean, and good size. Pool is clean, along with a hot tub. Such a relaxing hotel. My husband and are planning on going back lots of times! The people there are so friendly, so it's easy to stop and just talk to everyone. Was neat watching the guys in their cars with... More

We have been coming to this lovely Inn for years. The staff (especially Marjorie) is great. We will definitely be back. The location is great and right across from the San Clemente Pier and is also an easy walk to the charming down town for great food and shopping.

We stayed at the Casa Tropicana for 5 days and every day was wonderful. It is a Boutique Hotel that is great for a romantic stay or for hanging out with friends and family. It is close to the ocean making a dip in the Pacific never far away (the hotel even provides a beach bag with towels and it... More

I have visited San Clemente a few times in the past and it my favorite place to go. This city really is the perfect little town to kick back and live the beach life like a local. Everything you need is within walking distance of the Casa Tropicana - a couple cute breakfast places, a souvenir shop, mini mart, pizza... More

Just returned from beautiful san clemente. Spent Father's Day weekend there. Stayed in the casita clemente, very comfortable king bed with sofa bed. It was a nice perk to have a mini frig filled with FREE drinks (soft drinks, juice, water etc.) also a lovely basket with yogurt, hard boiled eggs, cheese, and muffins. Beer & wine were an extra...

We stayed here for three nights and it was what I mostly expected just from viewing the pictures on the website. The property has become dated especially the bathroom - the shower was some sort of make shift system over the spa tub. The water pressure was awful and we could never get the temp set to a normal temp... More

We stayed in the fuego room, and it wasn't a very comfortable experience. The air conditioning wasn't working, which made the room very hot. While typically we would have kept the windows open, the loud train across the street from the inn would blare its horn all night. We ended up trying to craft an a/c by putting a bucket... More
