“Extremely helpful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

I only stayed a short night before my flight back home. It's close to the airport and it seemed a shame not to spend More time there. The reception staff was extremely helpful, you get free international calls and they gave me a little packed breakfast as I left before the restaurant opened in the morning.
The Room was clean and had everything you want. I can't really comment on the rest of the facilities.

I am from the USA and have traveled Costa Rica and San Jose many times over the past 15 years. I stayed with Adventure Inn with my Costa Rican girlfriend in February. Overall, the experience in terms of service is EXCELLENT. The owners and staff all work together to provide a service level that is much different than what you find in many parts of Central American. In addition to the great hotel and restaurant, they have a system and culture of providing "no hastle" information needed for a tourist.... especially, newbies. Their attention to detail is unique in Costa Rica. From the details in the documentation received when get confirmed, to the free international calling, taxi referrals, tour advice.... Great business model.

We only got to stay at the hotel one night before going on to another place in Costa Rica, but wish we could have stayed longer. We enjoyed everything about the hotel - the amenities, the staff who was available to help in any way, the good (free) breakfast and food for other meals, the good prices, the jacuzzi and pool, the cleanliness, the large room, access to computer, etc. Thank you for an enjoyable 24 hours! Thank you to everybody who made that one day special!

We just return from costa rica on Sept 10, 2013. We stayed in this hotel 7 days 6 nights. We love the Inn so much that the service personnel are really helpful, nice and other great values. We paid about $75- 80 a night because it's not peak season. 1. Transportations from airport to Adventure Inn is very good that we just fill out a form online. Interbus people pick us up right away when we arrive. 2. We appreciate the receptionists tried every effort to help me book tours i want. 3. There are truly free long distance calls we can use in rooms, i called to China, Hong Kong and U.S.( Of course you can call to other countries too). I don't need to pay a penny of it. My family know where i am and safe. 4. The TV has many channels, HBO, FOX, Chinese channel......... we watched it at nights and enjoyed it so much. 5. Air conditioning all days. ( We went to Tortuguero for one night, even we saw lots of wild life there, but that hotel has no A/C, we were freaking hot!) We missed Adventure Inn so much that night. 6. Breakfast is just what we want to warm my stomach. 7, The hotel has its own taxi service, so no need to worry about where to get a taxi. ( My friend went there before and stay at Four Season Hotel, he said it's hard to get a taxi, even he paid about $350 a night , he didn't get free long distance call and wifi in hotel.) 8. Adventure Inn has free Wifi everywhere. I can use the internet almost everywhere in the Inn. 9. The tours they offer through their website are great, we enjoy everyday in CR. We joined hot spring, canopy, Tortuguero, Calypso cruise and rescue ranch. We loved it so much. Their tours are so great!! No worries and so much fun! 10. Restaurant food are great (fresh cut french fries, shrimp alfredo......delicious!) 11. Adventure Inn taxi bring us back to airport at our last day. So convenient and totally no charge for us. (of course paid a tip). We paid a small tip when we got good service.
Of course we can't compare this Inn to a four or five stars hotels we can imagine/ ever been. We just compare it to how much we paid for. We just feel we got more than what we pay for. It gets reasonable size room, clean facility...) Maybe some people may think it's small. But everyone can pay more for what they want. Just think what can we get with this little money. Because this is not a resort, we can't ask for a beach front big room. We got great night sleep, comfortable beds and everything is clean. The Inn was very quiet, not like other people mentioned before. Maybe small ant, but no big flies. We appreciate Adventure Inn so much! Highly recommended!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the pool side are bigger, nicer, get nicer TV and nicer bath tub.

Sorry for the delay in this review- stayed in May 2013.

Another wonderful bookend stay! Eric and his staff continue to provide us with top-notch customer service, conveniences and excellent value.

I feel it is important to have a "go to hotel" or "home base" when traveling abroad. Adventure Inn is definitely my home base in Costa Rica!

Room Tip: All rooms are good!

We stayed here overnight before our flight next morning. It was pleasant experience. Nice breakfast. Nice restaurant and great staff. They arranged cab for us too. Their location is great. You can walk down for 15-20 min to go to supermarket to buy some coffee and salsa Lizano:) Totally recommend it.
