My stay at the Adventure Inn was an awesome experience. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The service was so warm and hospitable. When I asked to book a trip, the woman at the desk took care of that immediately and was very informative and helpful as well. My room was clean and I really appreicated... More

I stayed at this hotel solely based on the reviews on Trip Advisor and I wasn't disappointed. It was exactly what I was hoping for. Something that was a bit out of town, was easy access to the airport and the highway into town, clean and quiet area. This hotel is about 10 minutes from the San Jose Airport and... More

We arrived late in the evening with lots of luggage as we were traveling with children and going to be staying in Costa Rica for awhile. The lady working the reception was very rude and made no attempt to speak English. Needless to say after we drug out proof of our reservation she assigned us to the farthest room away.... More

We are only a two storey building so how these people ended going 'up and down several sets of stairs' is beyond me, and makes me wonder if this review is an honest assessment of Adventure Inn. Traveling with children can be stressful. We do not ask people in advance how much luggage they have and therefore first try to... More

Our family stayed at The Adventure Inn for one night - the night we arrived in Costa Rica. It was perfect -- close to the airport, clean, and affordable. Our room was spacious. I was especially impressed with the customer service before we even got there... Mike, the owner, arranged for our excursion the next day (Poas Volcano Tour) and... More

We stayed here both, on arrival in San Jose and the night before our departure, was not what we expected. Our room was old and kind of junky. The bed was hard and about a foot too short, not sure what happened there. The room we were in for our departure stay was better, but the bathroom was still questionable.... More

This review doesn't make a lot of sense and I wonder if there has been a mistake. For starters, why are they writing this review nearly five months after they checked out? All of our beds are exactly the same length - the standard "full" size that you get in nearly every hotel, 75 inches long, and they are orthopedic... More

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and I booked the Adventure Inn based on Tripadvisor reviews. We arrived in San Jose late on a Friday night, followed instructions emailed to us by Mr. Robinson regarding how to find and pay a cab and were warmly greeted by Adventure Inn staff. We were made to feel welcome and comfortable.... More

My wife and I were guests at Adventure Inn on three separate occasions this year (2010) and, because of our experience there, felt compelled to share the following impressions: Without exception, we found the entire staff to be genuinely courteous, helpful and friendly. They were also extremely responsive to any requests for assistance or detailed information about Costa Rica. Our... More

We recently stayed at this fine hotel in Costa Rica. We had never traveled to Costa Rica before, and traveled with two small children and two grandparents. The owners, Mike and Eric, were tremendous help in providing ideas for side trips, traveling in Costa Rica, and general advice. They helped us find a reasonable car rental, and this transaction went... More
