“Great overall experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

great hotel located just about 10 – 15 minutes from San Jose International airport. We were surprised by the nice décor around the hotel. Much of the experience was just as the hotel websites advertises. What made it stand out the most was the friendly service of the employees. We were upgraded to a king size bed with a Jacuzzi bath (noting it was for our honeymoon and we were there for a total of 3 nights). Realizing we didn’t speak Spanish, they did an excellent job speaking in English and remembering us throughout our stay. We also booked the 8-in-1 tour (3-in-1?) to the coffee plantation, Poas volcano, and La Paz Waterfall Gardens. We would highly recommended this. The restaurant on site was good (easier than finding off-site restaurants without a vehicle) and the breakfast met the high expectations after the rave reviews. We didn’t spend much time in the pool, but the hot tube was wonderful. The complimentary shuttle to and from the airport was a huge plus as well and easy to arrange. We would easily recommend staying at the hotel!

You can not go wrong staying at the adventure inn. The rooms were super clean and comfortable. Loved the hand painted art on the walls. The breakfast was wonderful. LOTS of fruit on the buffet. Plus breads and choices of juice. Then you got a menu and were able to choose what you wanted. Eggs, pancakes, french toast. The pool was a little cool but great for cooling down at the end of the day. AND they had a hot tub jacuzzi also. We booked many tours with the front dest before we arrived and they even made up a breakfast to go box. Not large but enough to get you going. That plus coffee in your room. An extra special thanks to Nancy at the front desk. Can't thank you enough for all your help. Please consider staying at the adventure inn. I have found when traveling that you really don't have to spend a million dollars to stay at a really nice place. We had everything we needed, plus more!!!!!

Once again I had to return to San Jose for a short business trip. My wife booked my stay at a place we used to stay once a month many years ago. The same friendly staff is there to greet you. They remembered my name and asked how my family was doing. This kind of service cannot be found in a large chain corporate hotel. I love this place for the staff and the extremely decent price. Nancy and Manfred are two of the many amazing front desk staffers that are there to help you with all your needs. I recommend this place to my friends and family as this IS THE PLACE TO STAY IN SAN JOSE! Heidi is one to their top housekeepers and all their waitstaff is there to assist you with the friendliest smile and great service.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms in the front for light and ease, ask for rooms to the back for quite and secluded room...

Adventure Inn could not be more convenient and welcoming, especially for people with late-arriving and early-departing flights. Free airport shuttle, delicious breakfast included, beautiful pool, whimsical art all about the hotel add to the fun atmosphere. Staff are so friendly and helpful. Rooms are huge and my teenagers appreciated that a queen and two twin beds are easy to request. Ample coffee supply with coffee maker enabled us all to have our coffee before breakfast.

Hotel management was very helpful before the trip, with lots of useful tips and information, particularly with regard to car rental. We took advantage of the rental service and had the delivered to an picked up from our hotel. Competitive price and so convenient.

Price is excellent! I will certainly stay here again.

I stayed at Adventure Inn with my two kids and we had a great time! Everything was clean and well maintained. We were greeted with a smile and helpful information, the breakfast was excellent and we also appreciated the service of breakfast to go. Wake up calls, free shuttle, secure parking, ability to call loved ones internationally for free, coffee, fridge and microwave in the room, all the benefits of a 5 star hotel. We stay here every time we are in San Jose and highly reccomend to everyone we know. Good deal, great staff, great place.

Room Tip: The jacuzzi suite was worth the very few extra dollars!

For us it was just a base upon arrival in Costa Rica and spending the first night there. We thought it was perfect for that purpose. Close to the airport, away from street noise, etc. Good breakfast..
