We weren't really expecting much from this hotel. To start, it looks nothing like the photos (we got a queen room). The room was ok and noise is to be expected, our only problem was with the hotel entry. To get into the hotel, you have to buzz the gate. This apparently rings throughout the whole hotel. My friend and... More

Dear fellow travelers, I arrived at the Cala Inn in Alajuela on November 30th, 2014, in the afternoon. I paid $13 for the dorm room immediately on arrival. A few hours later, I heard guests discussing a noise the previous night with the employee. Apparently a loud alarm in the store beneath the guest house had started at midnight and... More

I stayed in the hotel for one night because of its proximity to the airport. The hotel is on a main street in Alajuela and it can be very noisy. It is however close to Alejuela's center. Another nice feature is that someone stays in the front desk 24h a day

Free wifi Rooms small, but the rates are cheap. Clean bathrooms, although the shower could have been better. Very helpful staff. Good central location in town, but still only 5-10 mins from airport. Lounge - public area, with street front balcony. Kitchen available. Surprisingly quiet considering there's a main road outside. Ask for a back room (e.g. one named "MONTE... More

I rate this 4 stars based off of the price paid and the value. If you need a place to stay a day or two before you fly out, this is a great stop. Excellent location as you can walk to anywhere in town and you have 2 great parks to hang out in. We tried booking online (I think... More

We needed a place to sleep/stay for literally 7 hours. Arrived at the airport after midnight, and sure enough, they were ready to receive us upon arrival (sigh of relief). It was clean enough. Breakfast was good. A piece of the roof, however, right above our heads was blowing and banging in the wind of the storm early in the... More

It was $40 a night for a double with a private bath, so we didn't expect much. It was clean & comfortable, & most of the time the fan was adequate, in spite of the heat & humidity. Most of the people (notably the owners) were very friendly & helpful. We also felt safe here.
