I've been coming here for years and although it is a little bit on the expensive side you get what you pay for. I hate staying in hotels that feel dirty and dingy, but Casa Tropicana is the complete opposite of that! My favorite part is the whirl pool tube & indoor fireplace.

Location is good and that's why we chose to stay at the hotel on our 10th anniversary night. It was pricy but we wanted to have a special experience. THe room itself is very small. You share a patio with 3-4 other rooms on the same floor. We could hear the train pass every half hour or hour at night.... More

Marjorie consistently ensures a most wonderful memorable stay. This is such a special bed and breakfast that I cannot come up with words that are sufficient! It's inviting, beautiful, relaxing, and quietly elegant. You just want to come back! The lovely wines, breakfast basket and treats in the fridge are so appreciated! The lovely pantry area where you can grab... More

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

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.
