Very nice small hotel where they treat you with the most respect the entire time you are there. The reception is very inviting, the securities are tuff but are there to protect the people that stay there and are also very inviting. The rooms has a outdoor comfort feel. The standard to deluxe rooms are very small and makes you... More

I have stayed at the Dunn Inn several times in San Jose. I have recommended it several times. The staff there is great, I love the free breakfest in the morning of fresh fruits. What a nice way to start off the day. I return there several times a year and they store a suitcase there for me. Makes it... More

I only stayed for one night, but I was pleased. The employees were very helpful. I was impressed with how well they spoke English (my Spanish is very, very limited). The room was comfortable and clean. I think I was the only one on my floor that night, but if not, then it was quiet, which helped make sure that... More

If you are in San Jose and want ta comfortable, homey place to stay, Dunn Inn is perfect. Staff are friendly and helpful in every way. Hotel is clean, and has a quiet, almost elegant character to it that is comforting. Prices are fair, and the several rooms I've stayed in have all been clean, perfectly functional (no mystery t/v's,... More

All the people who work there go out of their way to make sure that everyone is taken care of. The rooms I have stayed in are all beautiful with the hardwood floors.

The hotel is located in a quiet location of Barrio Hamon walking distance to the zoo, museums...At the front desk they were really helpful at scheduling a tour, providing a map with points of interest in San Jose. The hotel and the room were maintained spotless. It... More

Just spent several days at the Dunn Inn, in the historic district of San Jose and truly enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel itself has a very interesting history back to the turn of the century. All modifications were done carefully and to the specs of historical society. Nice brickwork and lighting make it a beautiful hotel inside and... More
