Wonderful visit. Too bad we couldn't stay more than one night. We will take care of that on our next visit. Loved meeting Marjorie and Susan. They tended to all our needs. Cannot remember when amenities (including all manner of beverages) were included, to say nothing of the stylish puka-shell necklace which now adorns my wife's neck. Now that we're... More

This hotel is beautiful. It is very quaint and the staff is very friendly and helpful. They are very giving also! You get champagne, wine, cheese, and other snacks upon arrival. Also the breakfast in the morning was great. We were only a few minutes from home and felt like we were far away. The beds were very comfortable and... More

I can't say enough about Casa Tropicana in San Clemente Ca. I recently stayed there for a girl's weekend and we will probably make it an annual event. First of all, I believe it is the best place I've ever stayed. It is newly remodeled and each room/suite has it's own unique experience from the romance/honeymoon room to a more... More

The location was directly across from the pier, the room was beautiful and the hosts were extraordinary. The complimentary stocked room refrigerator was a great surprise.

My boyfriend and I stayed in the penthouse room at the Casa Tropicana this past weekend and we were completely blown away with what a wonderful, magical experience we had. We were celebrating our anniversary and everything was so amazing. The innkeepers, Rick and Sue, were very accommodating and wonderful to us. They really went out of their way to... More

We loved the Casa Tropicana! We were fortunate to have stayed in the Casablanca room. The view is amazing! The deck is huge with a variety of seating options. The outdoor kitchen (microwave, fridge and sink) was really handy. The breakfasts were delicious. The decor in the room lets you know this is the Casablanca room. Nicely done. The bed... More

We just completed a not-long-enough stay at this delightful boutique getaway in San Clemente. Situated directly across the street from the beach and the town pier, we could watch surfers catching the next best wave from our hotel window, or catch the magnificant sunset at the end of the day. Our room was spacious, immaculate, well-appointed, and lovingly decorated, with... More

My wife and I recently spent our anniversary at the Tropicana and can't tell how much fun we had! The staff was very helpful and our room was incredible. Sitting in the hot tub, watching the sunset, and pure relaxation! What else does one need... We won't have to even think about going anywhere else when visiting beautiful San Clemente.... More

Spent several nights there with my girl friend while in town on business. Although we stayed in the penthouse suite, I saw several of the other rooms. The penthouse is on the fifth floor and is across the street from the beach and the San Clement pier. It has a private patio with chaises, a sauna and, a hot tub... More

Quite frankly, I would have liked this place more if I wasn't spending approx. $400 a night. Yes the location is perfect and adds to the price but next time I will find an alternative as there are other places close to the beach (and two night condo rentals are not hard to find in this area either). I read... More

Quirky could be Cool!! I agree. $400.00 is a lot of money…especially in these tough economic times. Ocean front Casita Clemente’s posted room rate is $310 weekdays and $375 on the weekends for this large suite. I am very sorry you feel you didn’t receive the value our inn has to offer. Pricing is sometimes difficult to place. From the... More
