very overpriced! Not a peaceful location. Managers were awful and rude! You can go elsewhere and have a much better experience with a better breakfast for much cheaper!!

Wow!! I thought about this one for quite a while, but came to some conclusions. One, you can’t please everybody. Two, Tripadvisor really works. And Three, I question if this person really ever stayed here. To that end, these comments really don’t describe our operation at all. Primarily, we don’t have Managers. Sue and I own and operate our little... More

We really enjoyed our stay at the Casa Tropicana in San Clemente CA. The Inn is located stumbling distance to the Pier and the Beach. Great location, great, unpretentious town.

My wife and I recently escaped for a one night getaway for our 3rd anniversary. From check-in to check-out our experience was absolutely perfect.

Casa Tropicana is a small bed and breakfast right on the ocean, next to the pier in San Clemente. It has a handful of rooms, each with a custom theme. The rooms are basically all the same, with the exception of the top level. The rooms are very nice, comfortable and more contemporary than the average Bed and Breakfast. The... More

We agree with you! Although, we are confident that Casa Tropicana is actually, hands down, is in fact the Best Ocean Front Spot in all of San Clemente, Orange County, or California! But hey, we could be accused of being biased too. But we still believe it so. Sue and I enjoy being on site and getting to know our... More

First off I would like to say I have never been much into "relaxing" or looking at scenery etc. My work allows me to see some areas in the mountains that few people will ever get to experience and most would probably be awestruck. Oceans and beaches have never really meant much either. I have never had a vacation where... More
