“Clean, Convenient & Affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2009

Our family of seven booked two rooms for our first two nights and last two nights in Costa Rica. This Hotel is clean and comfortable. Its proximity to the airport was our main reason for staying here. The management was excellent in providing valualabe information through emails which helped us organize our trips. We spent little time in the rooms using our days for activities in the San Jose area including trips downtown and to el Poas volcano. It felt good to return to a safe and cozy setting after a day of activities. Other pluses include free internet, free breakfast, although at times the restaurant staff seemed overwhelmed and took time brining the food. We also took advantage of the 10% discount for paying cash. Our children thouroughly enjoyed the jacuzzi.

The biggest aid from this hotel for us was that we were allowed to leave luggage in storage once we left for other parts of the country. We could not fit all the suitcases in our rented vehicle, so we left some behind and retrieved them after a week of touring when we checked in again for our final 2 nights in San Jose. One caveat for those driving is that finding the exit for the hotel can be tricky. You should exit after the pedestrian bridge. Just exit where you see the "Doubletree Hotel" sign which is half a block from Adventure Inn. Overall Adventure Inn is an excellent choice at a great price and near to the airport.

We stayed here our last night in C.R. before flying out. The location is good, a straight shot to the airport from here. Not bad for the price, but nothing like the 3 hotels we had in other parts of the country, which I think spoiled us. The food was ok, but service was a little slow at the restaurant, and they ran out of milk or even cream to put in coffee/tea for breakfast. My wife saw a large cockroach when we first checked into our room...the staff said this was unusual, and we did not see another one. The room was of decent size with 3 beds. There is a waterpark a few minutes away that we hoped to go to since it is free for those at the hotel, but it was closed on Mondays, so we were unable to try it. There is a fitness room that has decent options, and there are 4 computers with internet access. It was quiet enough to get a good night's sleep.

The hotel owners helped us plan our trip and booked transportation and cell phones for four families even though we were only staying one night at their hotel. They were willing to answer many questions and do research for us. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are large and clean. There is a workout room and internet available. The food in the restaurant is excellent. Other people staying there were impressed with the value they received compared to other hotels slightly closer to the airport. There is no pool but the kids liked the hot tub. It is located in a safe area and had a 24 hr. guard. It is a little difficult to find but people were helpful in directing us.

Stayed here on our first and last night in Cota Rica . Clean , large rooms and good free breakfast and close to the airport. 10% off rates for cash and refund of the taxi fare from the airport. Free internet on four computers and also wifi if you have your own laptop The manager obtained good rates for our car hire through Tricolour (substantial reduction for hire ouside Dec/Jan which we could not better on the internet )

Downside - there is no outside area although you are offered free access to the waterpark about 10min drive away but we were not too impressed with it. If you do have some time to fill before or after a flight think about La Rosa de America( where we also stayed ) which has a swimming pool in a nice garden ,quiet location near airport and the bird park nearby which makes a nice half day trip.

We used this hotel as a base, so ended up there 3 times. It's very difficult to find if you're travelling by car! The reception staff were brilliant - they organised car hire and several tours - everything went unbelievably smoothly. But the restaurant is grim - it's a real wasted opportunity since they have a captive audience of travellers.

Our experience at the Adventure Inn was ideal-- exactly what a hotel stay should be. The staff was hospitable and helpful, and the amenities they offered were great. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious, and most of all affordable. The restaurant was great as well. Delicious and affordable food, and our servers were very receptive and patient with us. (Muchas gracias Maria!) It was also very helpful to have free computer stations with high speed Internet to stay in touch while on vacation. Overall, staying at the Adventure Inn was a perfect way to both begin and end our vacation-- we will certainly be back next time we visit Costa Rica!
