Rooms are small but you can't beat the price. The location is almost right in the center, near all the shops and restaurants. It has an excelent view of arenal from the pool area. One could sit out watching the lava flow on a clear night. Service is excellent. Free WiFi from any where in the hotel. Free coffee and... More

One of the best places we stayed during our trip around the country. Very clean, very friendly staff, good premises. Only problem was the noise. Not very well isolated, but then again, almost all hotels had the same problem. Would definitely recommend, specially for the price/quality ratio.

Just far enough from Fortuna's central park to avoid the noise.....yet, a very close walk to most restaurants and shops. Helpful, friendly reception desk clerks. Jus excellent open air hot breakfast. Rooms a little small but their cleanliness makes up for it, and....everything works as it should, including air conditioning and Wi-Fi. Gated parking spaces are much appreciated as well.... More

This hotel has a pretty good location, just a couple minute walk from the Central Park in La Fortuna. The WiFi was not very strong in my room and kept disconnecting me.

The Inn is located just off the main street and is clean and relatively quiet at night. The staff was excellent, advice and assistance from the office highly valued. The breakfasts provided in the mornings were among the best on my trip. Pool and hot tub were in great shape and looked inviting.

What's not to like? Clean rooms. Nice pool. Great breakfast included. Complimentary coffee & Wi-Fi. Kind service. Right near the center of town. Great views of Arenal. For this price, you'd be a fool not to stay here! Excellent budget option.

Staff was very friendly and provided great information. The location was in the city...walking distance to the town center. Clean rooms and great breakfast options! Would definitely recommend for short stays!

This hotel is an excellent option for travelers on more of a budget who still want a comfortable and clean place to sleep where the staff is incredibly helpful, the breakfast is good (and included), and the location is perfect.
