“Comfortable and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We arrived in Costa Rica late on New Years Eve and needed a place near the airport for our first night in the country. There was supposed to be a van to pick us up but it never showed up so we had to take a cab to the hotel )$12.00' not appreciated. But after we got there' the staff was friendly and helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast which was included in our hotel gave us several choices of what we wanted to eat. This hotel is a good place to stay if you have a late arrival or an early departure

Our free shuttles to and from the international airport transfer literally thousands of people every year, and on a very rare occasion, I mean less than .1%, something goes wrong. Unfortunately usually it is the guest entering the wrong date on the request form, as it is all computerized. If these guests had mentioned the problem, even if it was their fault, who knows, we would have gladly refunded the $12 taxi fare. We try to bend over backwards to keep our valued guests happy and coming back.

just wanted to pass along to the nice people working at the Adventure Inn near the San Jose airport that you made our stay that much better. We used the inn as a starting and ending point of our CR vacation, flying in at night and flying out in the early am. Adventure Inn provided great service getting us to and from the airport as well has having a very nice restaurant, thus preventing its patrons from having to find a local restaurant. Believe me, considering where the hotel is located, that would not be a trivial pursuit. The bartender, Mike, was a great conversationalist and being from Michigan, it was easy to communicate our questions about CR to him. I would highly recommend anyone flying to CR to use the Adventure Inn as a starting point -- they are able to provide a multitude of services and a wealth of information regarding tourism in Costa Rica.

Actually, there are several nice restaurants in a new open-air mall about four blocks from Adventure Inn, another six within a ten minute walk, and if you cross the foot bridge over the highway, maybe fifteen minutes, is a large mall with everything from a food court to fine dining. In total there are over thirty restaurants within a fifteen minute walk or a two minute drive of Adventure Inn. Of course, especially at night, instead of wandering the streets, we do love when guests just decide to safely dine in-house to enjoy the value, convenience and home-made Tico and international dishes of our own open-air restaurant, the MoonGlow Bar and Grill, open daily until 9:30 pm for full entres, and up to 11 pm or later for lighter meals and snacks.

We stayed 2 nights at Adventure Inn in December before going to other parts of Costa Rica. The staff was fantastic, the room was very nice, and the value was incredible (breakfast and airport transportation included). I wish we had stayed longer. Highly recommend this property.

We stayed on both ends of our trip in and out of San Jose. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff was very nice. Airport shuttle was awesome and the beef nachos at the hotel restaurant were great. We would stay there again. The only down side was if you wanted to walk into town I didn't know where that was. But we landed late and this place was perfect. We had 2 beds for 4 people so it was great for the family......you also can beat the price.....the rental car company dropped off at the hotel and was there to pick up when we got back....

Hi I booked the Adventure Inn as part of a Desafino tour package. My room was great. The staff at the front desk couldn't have been nicer and they also let me call home for free. They have internet access and they had a great drinks. What I ordered in the resturant wasn't cooked properfly and they took it right off the bill without me having to ask. The transportation was free. I would reccomend paying cash at the hotel because you can get an additional discount. Breakfast was included and it was excellent. You can order off the menu. The location was good not too far from San Jose City center but in a safe area.

Check in was easy and hospitality was ever present.. I inquired about an upgrade room and got a good deal.
Wi fi no problem and gym is open 24 hours. Cool bar and lounge and food . You can walk to a casino about 20 minutes away or stroll around . Taxi buddies there will take you where ever you want or they can sugggest about anything you desire for cheap.I liked it because it was away from the downtown district where a gringos are hunted after hours.Safe , sane and a bargin.

Room Tip: Haggle. It is o.k. here to get what satisfies you.

Our group of five really enjoyed staying at Adventure Inn, both for the convenience to SJO airport and because it was outside of San Jose (we wanted to avoid driving in the city). We stayed there for three non-consecutive nights and each experience was great. The room was spacious and clean, no major noise problems while we were there, and a decent, large breakfast was included with the stay. We ate at the hotel's restaurant for dinner as well, which was not the best but it was convenient. The staff members were friendly and helpful. We also rented a car through the hotel which worked out perfectly.
