In need of a quick, one night accommodation close to the Embassy due to morning traffic I stayed here, having had a decent experience 13 years prior. I don't think they had changed a thing in all those years apart from a snazzy new entrance that makes the hotel appear to be boutique and modern looking dining area. Other than... More

Arrived PM from San Diego, Ca.April 2013 The hotel staff was fantastic. Our room was neat, clean and very comfortable. The service and food in the restaurant was very good. Our room had AC which was fine. This hotel is 2 blocks from the grocery store. A great value for the price.

On our second stay we had a renovated room, which was one of the nicest rooms i have ever stayed in. There is a very nice grocery store right around the corner which is convenient. Close... More

We stayed here on the last day of our trip. The hotel was nice, comfortable and clean. The showers were hot, the tv and internet in the rooms worked great (this was not true in several of the other places we stayed) and the breakfast buffet was very good as well. We had time to lay and play in the... More

Best feature: without question the friendliness & helpfulness of the staff. We stayed for a week; the included bkfst was good but repetitive. Menu lunches and dinners were better. Gallo pinto with every meal has a limited appeal. The room was fairly clean but sort of old-fashioned; the TV was ancient and barely worked [though we didn't come to C.R.... More

Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights while we had appointments in SJ , and overall, a very good experience. Some reviews have been critical of the property, however we found the place had an old world charm, and the staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating. The hotel is very near to Sabana Park, and a short... More
