I traveled around Costa Rica and stayed in 5 different places. This place was not the worst place to stay. It's nothing special and there is a casino next to it. We were with a group of people and took up about 10 rooms. They served us breakfast each morning and it was good- obviously not american. It can be... More

Owners do not care about cleaning up this place, insects, roches, small and dark rooms, too noisy. There is a casino right next to it and safety is an issue all night long, do not recommend this place at all.

Hotel America is not a high end Luxury resort, but the value for your money is very good. Nancy and George (behind the desk most days) are very helpful and speak good english. They can be very helpful with transportion, or any problem you encounter with travel. The local neighborhood in the area is beautiful, and convenient for all types... More

We stayed here while doing a medical mission trip and the beds were okay and the rooms were clean. The biggest problem I faced was the maids were stealing stuff out of my suitcase! They stole little things like make-up and lotion. I still noticed and was really disappointed in the staff. If you are wanting to stay here make... More

The room and bathroom were clean. The breakfast was adequate, plenty of fresh fruit, the traditional rice and beans...The staff was friendly and helpful and most of them spoke English. Their wi-fi was good. The hotel is conveniently located. Drawbacks - most of the rooms don't have a window and if you are a light sleeper and happen to be... More

Once I got used the idea that $70 was cheap for Costa Rica and I saw the place in daylight, I was not dissatisfied with our hotel. It is located in a charming old theater with antique camera equipment and a dramatic, sweeping staircase. The location is perfect for walking around the city--a great Central Valley base for exploration. We... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. We were basically forced to stay here due to an unforeseen emergency late in the evening. The gentleman at check in provided no service at all. Our room was upstairs a few doors down from the elevator. Once we got into our room I was scared to place anything on the floors since it just... More

Our room had no window, it was very loud, smelled very ugly and in the bathroom were cockroaches. The breakfast: Toast, fruits which looked anything but fresh. I asked for margarine or butter, the waitor told "No margarine today". The transparent liquid called coffee tasted like sluice water. The only thing positive in this hotel are the 3 internetaccesses in... More

For what it is, it was very nice. Don't expect a 4 star hotel, but it's well worth the price. The Hotel America is consistent with other hotels of the same vintage we've stayed in in other Latin American nations. It's not what you find in the US, but shouldn't be expected to be so. We were well pleased with... More
