We were greeted by cockroaches at the front desk. The entire place looked abandoned and neglected. The pool was dismal. I would recommend one of the Best Westerns over this property anytime. We cancelled our reservation and found another place to stay!

The hotel is on the corner of an incredibly busy intersection which was worrisome, but it was surprisingly quiet when you got back where the rooms were. It had great air conditioning, a warm shower, and comfortable bed in a clean room. It had a nice pool, but we didn't have time to go in it. We ate lunch and... More

This hotel is ok if you want to spend the night in Liberia, probably on the day of arrival/departure via Liberia International Airport. Hotel is ok. It's clean, beds are good, breakfast (toast, eggs, rice and beans) ok and there is a swimming pool. Nothing special but perfect for your flight transfer.

An okay place to stay if you want to spend time in Liberia, which is a big if. We spent a night here because we had to catch a flight the next day. In hindsight, we would have much rather stayed in Playa Panama, Playa Del Coco or Playa Harmosa. They are actually closer to the airport and have nicer... More

Hi. Thank you, your feedback is important to know we fulfill your needs as a hotel. Most of our clients are people going to the border as part of their trip and moving to/from the airport, which is 15 minutes away. Staying in Liberia is also very convenient if you want to move to beaches and National Parks. We will... More

I wanted to travel from Nicaragua to Liberia for two nights, but I had not scouted out Liberia before and was hoping I'd find a place to stay that night after TicaBus dropped me off near McDonalds. It was dark and I could barely read my map. Fortunately, this hotel was right across the road and open. It was a... More

This hotel has charm. It's a quality that is being wiped out in many places. The rooms are located around the pool (which when we were staying in Feb was freezing!!) which is situated behind the open air restaurant in front of the main intersection of town. After a sometimes scary trip across the street (use the cross walks!!) there... More

Rooms are behind restaurant and busy intersection and we had no noise problems. Ate dinner there, staff easily accommodated vegetarian husband and we had a good laugh when I used the Spanish word for desert versus dessert ;-) Staff gently made sure we were up for our 5:30am taxi.
