This is the only hotel i've ever stayed in when visiting Costa Rice. At the time the rooms were very clean and well stocked. We were within walking distance of restaurants and public transportation. Only 30 minute drive to the coast.

Las Espuelas is a very comfortable hotel and fine place to stay, I highly recommend it. The hotel is located 2 km. south of Liberia, just off the highway, but because of the hotel’s configuration you won’t hear the highway. The air-conditioned rooms are clean and very adequate, with comfortable beds and good showers. The attractive grounds are large with... More

This hotel is right on the PanAmerican highway and there are major roadworks outside at the moment. We had booked two superior rooms with plenty of notice, but were put in basic rooms, which were really basic, as all the superior rooms were taken...not impressive. We moved the next day and the refurbished rooms are much better. Unusually for Costa... More

For an inexpensive property, I happily recommend this hotel. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and spacious. The pool and gardens are impecable. Breakfast is more than satisfying, with the staff very accomodating. Due to flight delays, we were forced to stay in Liberia for a night. Booked this hotel through the Best Western web site, and was very pleasantly surprised... More

We had a late cancellation of a flight 3-29-14. The airline's plan was to bus passengers 1.5 hours away to a roach motel. We luckily booked 2 rooms here. Only 10-15 mins from LIR. Very pleasant staff. Clean comfy rooms with good A/C. Neat bar and food open to at least 9pm.

We reserved this hotel based on location (hotel close to Liberia as we wanted to visit the volcano Rincon de la Vieja)) and TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The lady at the desk was very helpful. Nice and clean room. The breakfast was beyond my expectation of a continental breakfast (eggs, pancakes, fresh fruits,etc...). Easy to find and... More
