My mom and I stayed here for 2 nights this Christmas. The location is to die for, right in the middle of downtown San Jose. The pool area is very cute, and the water is the perfect temperature.

Front desk staff is amazing. They are prompt and VERY helpful. The staff in the restaurant however is sub par.
The continental breakfast includes coffee, juice, a fruit plate and a basket of baked goods (good quality). One morning we asked to order 2 eggs (which is listed on their menu) as we had an oddly timed flight home, and wanted to have a good breakfast. It took forever for them to make and then didn't have a cashier to "figure out" how much it would cost, even though it is clearly listed on their menu. Had we not been in a rush to get to the airport, the process would have been a lot easier as they offered to put it on our room tab (which we had already paid)

Overall the hotel is amazing. Look elsewhere in town for more reasonably priced food.

Just stayed 1 night at the Tropicana Inn. It was nice, quiet and clean. They have a small pool with a swim up bar, although the bar was not open (could be only open on weekends?). The restaurant was very nice with very good food, although a bit pricey. However, we found most things in San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas to be pricier than expected, so we weren't surprised.
Overall, we needed a place to stay before our flight out the next day and the Tropicana Inn was a good choice. Wonderful location (must go through the restaurant) and comfortable beds.

When you would like to stay in a small, cozy place instead of those "garganguan" hotels, try the Tropicana Inn in San Jose del Cabo. The rooms are very nice and keep with the "authentic" Mexican style. It is very quiet and relaxing and has a lot of atmosphere, a beautiful pool and many available services such as massage. There is also a restaurant in front that serves a nice variety of food and has an excellent presentation. Try something different - you won't be disappointed. Instead you'll have a taste of the local charm.

The Tropicana is centrally located in San Jose del Cabo with easy access to shops and
restaurants. I found the room to be clean and well maintained although older. The bathroom tile, ]once beautiful I am sure, is now dated. I had just returned from a kayaking trip and my lower
back was hurting. The bed was not good and made my bad back worse. The in room refrigerator
was loud and would have kept me up so I unplugged it from the wall.
The room was basically adequate and the hotel pleasant but I don't think I would stay here again.

The Tropicana Inn, is a hotel nestled behind a very nice resturant in the center of town. the location is excellent and so is the price. The resturant offers authentic mexican food. Its a little dark but, on a hot day the shade is highly valued. The rooms are small, cute, and just perfect. This hotel is a great value because the staff are so kind and warm. The hospitality makes you feel welcome and like a treasured guest. I would recommend this hotel; Marcos the manager is a wonderful man, his staff is kind friendly and welcoming.

Room Tip: try to get a room with one bed if you are traveling alone.

We found it comping back from La Paz, and only planned on staying one night. They charged $118 in cash, and the rooms were clean and nice. The masseuse was off the next day, and no one was at the pool, but it was nice to stay there, and be on the main strip. We suggest the art district just north of town.

My husband and I stayed ten nights here and had a wonderful relaxing stay. Non invasive and helpful staff. Very clean room and grounds. Close to dinning and in fact the on site restaurant is fantastic. We were able to walk everyday by the estuary and get to the beach with ease. A very nice town to hang out in. No need to go to Cabo!!

Room Tip: We had the upstairs suite. Lovely
