“Compared to what you can get, it's not good.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

This place is cheap and the staff is friendly and helpful enough.
But it is dull, rather ugly and the rooms have no charm whatsoever.
We decided to stay only one night and instead we headed to the other side of the volcano to El Castillo, where you can find some nice cheap places in beautiful surroundings instead of this one along the highway.
As such nothing wrong, but when in Costa Rica you don´t want to sit in a highway motel room, do ya?

Room Tip: Go to El Castillo instead of La Fortuna

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

It's very close downtown and close to the volcano and other attractions too. The view in the upper rooms is great. 2 king size beds in each room, fridge, safe, hot water, wifi, computers with Internet, AC. Very clean and the owner takes care of the place.

Make sure to ask for the tours in reception, the can sell you cheap tickets to the hot springs, horses, canopy, ATV, etc.

There is a good typical restaurant just next to the hotel. They have good food for a fair price

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms upstairs, the view is great
