Wifi Staff Parking AC food location The ad said that it included breakfast but it only included coffee and rolls. This was not clear.
We loved the staff , restaurant , feel & vibe of the hotel. Older yes , but clean and safe and located in the heart of Old downtown San Jose. Lots of great shops to hunt for treasures , great Mexican artifacts , many souvenir shops with lots of choices for meals or places to hang out. We didn't have any strong dislikes at all.
I stayed at the Tropicana on 12/10/16 after a week long yoga retreat at another resort. I selected the Tropicana based on the proximity to local flavor and the reviews. The Tropicana did not disappoint. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was a good value for the price. The hotel was also within walking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping. I also felt safew there as a single female traveler. NothInglewood.
Close to arts district Blinds were poorly placed and let in a lot of daylight.
Good location. Downtown is walking distance. A/C worked well. TV had some English language channels. Friendly staff. I had to park on the street the first night. The 2nd night they let me park in the gated driveway. I could never get the wifi signal in my room to work, I had to go down to the restaurant lobby to get online. The blinds were not very dark so you wake up with the sun.
