A very nice and quiet hotel, with parking. 5 minute walk from Avenida Central. Staff is wonderful and attentive. You can pay the Costa Rica departure tax at the hotel and save 10-15 minutes at the airport. Attached is Rick's Bar and Restaurant, which is a sports bar with full bar and good food. Free wifi.

I stayed at Dunn Inn the night I arrived in Costa Rica and the night before I left. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. A good breakfast is included with the room and there is good restaurant next door. I had quite a few questions during my stay and everyone was super nice and... More

Just got back from spending 3 days at the Dunn Inn and loved every minute of it. The rooms might be on the smaller side but it was absolutely perfect for what I needed. The best part about this hotel is the employees. They go out of their way to help you out. Pros: - walking distance to just about... More

I have enjoyed staying at the Dunn Inn many times, they always treat me so great. Stayed in a nice comfortable room, reasonable prices, great service. I enjoy the breakfest in the morning, the fresh fruit is to die for.

Only stayed one night, but loved how quaint and comfortable the place was. The staff was great, treated me like I was family. Angie went out of her way to help me with little things, which in my book is a big thing! I ha an interior room(22 I think) which was perfect for me. Clean, quiet, everything as advertised.... More

Room 10 has a window that opens right into the breakfast area. At times in the middle of the night or around 5 am, the staff lets the radio blast. It will be sure to get your morning off to an early start. You will also be pleased to hear other guests rocking between the sheets, sound seems to travel... More
