Adventure Inn was great. We arrived late, and they bent over backwards to make sure we had something to eat. They have a great Resturant, and our room was clean & good. They also have a free shuttle to & from the airport that's easy to arrange on line or at the front desk. It's a great spot to stay... More

This is a small but very pleasant hotel, and the food is very nice. We stayed here twice, rooms very nice size as we were a group of nine. The meals seemed reasonable and the staff very accommodating. I enjoyed the onsite pool as did my granddaughters.

United Airlines really ruined our schedules for our large family group (14 people) and some of us were forced to arrive a full day late. The staff accommodated the changes without a hitch. Food and service in the cozy little Moonglow bar and grill was very good. Prices are very reasonable and the cash discount was much appreciated. When we... More

We had a group of 12 people utilizing 3 rooms. Every time I had any questions someone was always quick to respond. Our airport transfer was waiting for us when we cleared customs. The hotel is quaint and clean. We all enjoyed the restaurant, bar, pool, and hot tub after a long day of airport lines and flying. The complimentary... More

The hotel was conveniently and centrally located right off of a major highway. It had a rustic adventurous feel to it with lots of trees and scenic pictures throughout but the amenities of a western hotel (pool, Jacuzzi, wifi). The hotel was very clean and offered a nice homemade breakfast buffet. This is a great hotel to be used as... More

We've been in Costa Rica for a month now and have stayed twice at Adventure Inn, most recently when we returned to San Jose for business. With or without pets, this hotel has perfect staff -- from reception to the great restaurant/bar to the management and housekeeping staff. Speak Spanish or English -- your choice as everyone is completely bilingual.... More

We haven't actually stayed at the Adventure Inn yet. We are going in December. But the communications from the owner and the Reservation person have been extraordinary; way beyond anything I have ever experienced before in any of my travel planning. We are staying at the Adventure Inn upon our arrival and many in our group are staying there at... More

I am an avid fan of TripAdvisor and always read reviews before I book a hotel or try a new restaurant. I feel it is important to hear other peoples' experiences before an establishment earns my business and hard earned money. I booked my stay at Adventure Inn through Hotwire. TripAdvisor, Hotwire and Adventure Inn boast the complimentary airport shuttle... More

AdventureInn, Owner at Adventure Inn, responded to this review

This lady is confused and blaming everyone she can for her own negligence. Adventure Inn has no fine print. We go out of our way to simplify your vacation. When you book directly with us, you are sent a confirmation with instructions how to reserve your free airport shuttle. When you book through Expedia (Hotwire), your contact information is withheld... More

I recently stayed at the Adventure Inn San Jose Costa Rica with my family. We made last minute reservations and I found this place based off Trip Advisor recommendations. This Hotel was Extremely accommodating. This is not the Fancy type Hotels like the Marriott or Hilton, it is an older hotel, but it is makes up for everything with a... More

We stayed at the Adventure Inn for the first four nights of our eight day trip to Costa Rica. It is in a nice area of San Jose (Cariari). Their shuttle picked us up at the airport when we arrived after 8 PM. They were waiting for us and it was free of charge. The hotel is not what you... More
