“Good stop”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Loved the pool and courtyard area - they have some aviaries with birds and interesting sculptures. Restaurant/bar was good and very clean. Room was clean and beds were comfy. Good location if you want to be in the heart of shopping and restaurants. Good quick drive over to the airport (which is why we stayed there the last night of our trip). TV was an old school one that didn't work all that well. I'd stay there again though. They won't check you in even 1 minute prior to 3pm, so keep that in mind for your arrival.

The Tropicana Inn features style and decor that evoke the charm of old Mexico, yet with all the modern conveniences, such as WiFi The staff is gracious. There is a beautiful in-house restaurant & bar with great food, but you are also within walking distance of shops, cafes, and historic attractions of San Jose. Clearly there were guests there who were relatively local and were regulars. I too hope to become a repeat guest.

The Tropicana Inn is reasonable priced, clean and in walking distance to great restaurants and Art Galleries in the lovely downtown of San Jose. I had a massage while there and was very happy with the service I received. (Thank you, Luis) This was an overnighter for us and we had a relaxing enjoyable stay. Will return.

For people that visit Cabo for the first time it’s important that this hotel is located in San Jose del Cabo, which is about 35 minutes from Los Cabos which is a much bigger city.
This hotel is in the art district, amazing local restaurants, such a charming city. Los Cabos is full of 5* hotels, drinks, clubs and tourist attractions, a lot like Las Vegas on the beach.
The breakfast in the hotel was good pastries, and coffee..,Full breakfast available in the hotel for extra $ which is very tasty. The pool and the rooms are very clean, so quiet, amazing way to relax. They clean the rooms 2x a day, and the room had a good size fridge in the so we could buy water and groceries.
Renting a car is not necessary, local bus goes to the grocery store and near the beach. Walking distance to the beach although the pool is much more relaxed way to enjoy the sunshine.
Overall I would do Tropicana Inn again. What a nice place, excellent staff!

Room Tip: rooms are spacious and have AC. Very clean and everybody is so helpful!

Three days at the Tropicana made me feel like I stepped back in time. What a wonderful hotel, old fashioned courtesy, comfortable beds, quiet pool, what more could you ask for. The food was very good. We were not hounded by sales people while there, no time share representatives to make our meals hurried. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking to get away from the rat race.

Room Tip: I stayed in a lower room, the balcony rooms might be a bit noisier.

My husband and I were looking for an inexpensive hotel for the last night of our Mexico trip. A local recommended the Tropicana Inn. The room was not anything special, but we found a clean room overlooking a nice swimming pool. The restaurant connected to the hotel was lovely and the food was excellent. A great location in the art district.

This little boutique hotel may only be a 3 or so star, but it's a 5 for me! I have stayed there neumerous times & i'll keep going back! Great hospitality & everyone is so freindly!
During the day, there are not too many people near the pool, so it's like a little oasis.
