This hotel is a Tico hotel. That means it was built for Costa Ricans, not for gringos. The level of service is consist with common tico expectations. As for the location, why would anyone who is going to visit a new city, not first do some research about the destination. It is true that this hotel is located in an area with adult, night time acitivities. It is really no different than any similar area in any major USA city.
I have stayed in other hotels within blocks of this hotel, franchise brands infact, and experienced many of the same issues. Costa Rican hotels don't really know what good beds are. Let's face it, in Costa Rica you get what you pay for. If you want a great meal, bedding and atmosphere, go to the Marriott. I suggest to the owner that he become a better hotelier and clean up his operation.
