This review is of fairly limited value - we arrived to San Jose late at night, slept at the hotel, had a breakfast and departed early in AM. But from what I saw during the short stay - the staff is very friendly. The place is very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, well maintained. Breakfast is included in the room rate,... More

The owners have figured out how to make an older property hop like a teenager. Everything works, and the free taxi to and from the airport is a service. There is a major shopping center nearby across a busy highway and although you probably want to take a cheap taxi to get there, it sure is handy. The inn is... More

We loved the Adventure Inn! The owners were very prompt with responses to our reservation requests via email. Once we arrived the staff was so friendly and even kept the kitchen open late for us to eat. The staff is very helpful in coordinating travel needs in San Jose and the surrounding area. The hotel was clean, comfy, and we... More

Stayed our 1st 2 nights and then again for last night of 8 day trip. Rooms were good, dinner and breakfast very good. Booked a one bus tour and car rental thru the hotel....worked out well. Saved a bit by paying cash for hotel room.

Great overall hotel. I was staying on a different hotel paying almost 3 times the rate that I end up paying at the adventure inn before doing a little bit more of research. The service is excellent and the food....OMG, The fooood. If you like to travel and still feel that you are in the USA this hotel wont fit... More

AdventureInn, Owner at Adventure Inn, responded to this review

This reviewer is correct and happily, the parking problem mentioned has been resolved. We rent so many cars that the car rental companies were leaving several cars in our lower parking lot the night before they were rented out, but now they must put them up on the road, still safe, but not as convenient. Also, employees are no longer... More

Stayed here with my fam. on a mission trip to CR, and while attending Spanish School. We were at the Adventure Inn for one month's time and were treated like family. ALL of the staff are friendly, and trust worthy. The bus stop is 100 meters away, and it's in a nice area, away from stinky San Jose! The mall... More

I live in Panama and travel through San Jose several times a year. This hotel has always come through on service and provided a comfortable stay. This time through, I was pleasantly surprised to see the new pool area! They have also opened up the dining room wall, which faces onto the pool. This brightens up the diningroom considerably. They... More

We stayed at the Adventure Inn at the beginning and end of our adventure through Costa Rica and I am glad that we picked the Inn for those nights. The location was perfect as we didn't want to stay in San Jose proper and the staff is incredibly helpful and attentive to all of our needs. The room was clean... More

When my wife and I travel to find a hotel, we look at the location, the web site, and the amenities. My trip to the Adventure Inn was an adventure because it included the highly trained staff of Mary, Loren, and Jose. All were very instrumental in making our stay complete. This is a great place for starting and ending... More
