This is such a quaint, special find in the heart of San Jose! Love the Old World Mexico feel, and the restaurant is awesome. Can walk to anywhere in downtown San Jose, and feel very safe! The rooms are a little small for a family, but we are willing to overlook that for the safety and location. We love the...

We had a one night stay en route to another venue. This hotel was clean, centrally located and affordable. I would not consider staying here as my ultimate destination but it certainly met our needs. Wi Fi and pool are bonuses.

I've always been leery of going to Mexico but my long weekend vacation at the Tropicana Inn in San Jose del Cabo exceeded my expectations, and I was very, very happy with my getaway to this quaint little area of Downtown San Jose del Cabo. This town is still recovering from devastating damage from hurricane Odile that hit in September...

This place is always good to us. In the heart of San Jose. Good food, good people, lovely garden & pool. Walking distance to everything (except beach). A must if you love history & city plug in. Don't miss the art walk every Thursday nite!

After the hotel I booked and paid for lost my reservation, we ended up here (of course, this is where I orignally wanted to stay but was trying to save some $$ on the one night we'd stay in the area). Kind of pricey for me, but felt like it was worth it. The staff was great, and gave us...

Stayed here one night before moving into our condo in Cabo. This is really a great find. The front is a restaurant which has the feel of 1900s Spanish Inn. Sunday morning they have a brunch complete with a harp player. It really makes for a unique experience. Parking is in the back so when coming from the airport you...

The front of the hotel is on a bustling street in the heart of the old town, but when you walk back into the courtyard where the pool and the entrance to the rooms are, it is quiet and has a zen feel. The rooms are decorated with Mexican flair. The price is reasonable and you can walk to restaurants...

If you are heading to Los Cabos to see Mexico, .... you won't. Tropicana Inn is one of the few places in which you can actually feel you are in traditional Mexico. Rooms are nice and "real"; the restaurant is even better. The location is unbeatable, just steps away from Plaza Mijares, the town center.

A friend and I scheduled a spa package one day at the Tropicana Inn, which included two hours of body scrub, massage, and foot wrap. The price was good (they were having a special, 50% off, so we paid $86 USD). The "spa" only has one room by the pool, with two tables in it. I enjoyed the experience very...

My wife and I stayed here one night early January, and we chose this hotel because it was 1) inexpensive and 2) close to SJC airport for our return home the next morning. Pros: very solid location in the historic district, a private parking lot directly adjacent, a lovely pool and central patio area. Very nice staff. If you're a...
