This hotel is ok for a one night stop as it needs some upgrading. The rooms were clean, but the bathrooms, bed, bedding, and furniture are in need of replacing. The room also smelled. The restaurant food was good and the service ok.

My girlfriend and I were very impressed by the staff.
Very courteous and helpful in arranging our tours
and anything else we needed.
All of our meals (breakfast,lunch,and dinner) were outstanding and reasonably priced.
Room was spacious and clean and the property overall was very well kept.

Overall a great value and we will defintely stay with Eric and his fine staff again.

Room Tip: Near the airport, and can arrange day trips.

Unfortunately, we had only one night at this delightful boutique hotel. Adventure Inn had a car waiting for us upon arrival at the airport in San Jose which was fantastic.(complimentary)
We arrived at Adventure Inn at 7:00 a.m. after an overnight flight from Colorado. The staff made sure that we got a room just as soon as the maid arrived for work. They stored our luggage and we waited beside the lovely pool until 8:00 for our room. I think it was extraordinary that the staff allowed us such an early check in time. What a great way to start our vacation in Costa Rica. We could take a nap instead of waiting around for a room.
The beds were very, very comfortable. Pillows and linens were high quality. The food was very, very good.
The staff was friendly and helpful. We were staying pre-cruise but if we had more days, Adventure Inn would have set us up with some wonderful tours. We will do that next time. I highly recommend this hotel. Don't bother with the big ones, stay here!

My family book-ended our Costa Rica trip at the Adventure Inn. Conveniently located 15 minutes from the airport, the hotel offers a free taxi transfer to and from the hotel. The rooms are large and clean with comfortable beds and a decent hot water shower. Amazingling both local and international calls are free so we could immediately call our daughter at home in Seattle to let her know that we had arrived safely. Staff are friendly and helpful and a full cooked to order breakfast is inlcluded. All for under $100 a room per night! The hotel also secured a taxi to take us the 3 hours to our rental cottage at Monteverde (cost $150 one way). Food in the hotel resturant was good and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the busy street

The Adventure Inn was fantastic! The staff helped our family in countless ways. They had rooms waiting near the restaurant and pool as they knew we were travelling with toddlers and they did not want us to have to walk very far to our rooms. They assisted us by refridgerating milk for our babies (twins), and when we had visitors to the hotel (car rental associates, shuttle transfers, etc) they came right to our room to let us know. We stayed at the beginning, and then in the middle and then again at the end of our trip and was welcomed each and everytime. This hotel is expert in making transfers within Costa Rica painless- they have a scale for weighing luggage, they offer free international calls, and they happily offer to translate Spanish for you (one front desk associate even ordered pizza (in Spanish) for us!!!). The breakfast was exceptional and the restuarant was reasonably priced and very tasty for other meals as well. The cleaning staff were always happy and the rooms were spotless. We have travelled throughout Central and South America and this small hotel is now our favorite due to its location, its services and above all its staff.

Thank you Cheryl,

Invariably, the more times and longer people stay with us, giving themselves an opportunity to experience all of our services, the more they appreciate the advantages, location and value of Adventure Inn.
