Location is great! The guys running the hotel were very helpful. After a nightmare experience up the hill at Luna LLena, this place was a welcome breath of fresh air. Rooms are basic and clean, but the walls are too thin in some of them. My group of seven used three rooms. Even the more "pampered" members of the group... More

I stayed here for 4 nights. The location is very convenient a stonethrow away from the main street. The room (no 4 on the ground floor) was clean. I found no need for the hotwater or AC which dropped the price from 40 to 25 dollars. The outdoor area and communal kitchen gives a potential for social interaction. The staff... More

I am a bit surprised by the amount of extremely bad reviews this hotel got. It is true that not all the rooms are terrific value, but if you have a look around the hotel, you might find one to suit your needs. I spent there four nights with my boyfriend. When I went there to have a look at... More

where do I even start... We got a mountain side room.... but everything was bad: from the ugly smelly room (musty) for $35 a night, plus $10 for air conditioning... to the awful noise coming from the road just above the hotel.... dirty kitchen, nonresponsive staff... it's just awful! Definitely not worth a penny.

We have been staying at this hotel 2 nights, paid in advance, if not after one night we would have left. tHis hotel looks quite nice when you arrive, there is a kitchen, useful if you don't plan spending too much money, but regarding the room.. We paid 40 dollars with no hot water (not needed anyway). There was an... More

My husband and I were honeymooning in Costa Rica. When we arrived in Montezuma we found La Aurora was under serious construction. I had been in frequent email contact with the manager and she never breathed a word. She said I could either break my reservation, no cost, or she would upgrade me to room #9, the largest third floor... More

The rooms were advertised on the street for $40, but we paid $65 for a/c and upstairs with a lanai. The lanai was nice, and the a/c was more than adequate. The rooms were clean, and I didn't see a single insect in my room the entire stay. The only complaint I had was the noise. The walls were so... More

We were planning on spending 2 nights here and only stayed 1 of them. Rooms are not that clean, like squashed mosquitoes on the wall. No mosquito nets and the AC is only so-so with its cooling power. If you stay here be prepared to be eaten alive by bugs. Bathroom vents were screen less so any bug that wanted... More
