We were lost, in San Jose, and saw signs for the Best Western. It was a great place with awesome views! The staff was friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Raul was a great host and the restaurant across the street was delightful (another Raul ran the place). Highly recommended if you are staying near San Jose (only 20... More

There were only 2 reviews on T.A. when I booked, so I didn't know what to expect.

Free WiFi. Cons: Since it is on top of... More

After the steep and dangerous drive up to the hotel, we entered a secure gate. Secured by an armed guard, due to the area...don't even think about being able to walk... More

As a "treat" for myself I went to Paradise Inn for a breast reduction. Arrived at the airport and did not have anyone to pick me up ------------- was thinking I had made a mistake in traveling from Atlanta, GA to CR. Shuttle did arrive 30 min. later. This was the ONLY problem I experienced the entire 10 days. The... More
