Objective review. For the area this hotel is OK. Clean. Decent. It has a/c, hot water and its clean. There is a restaurant with a bar on premise. Another restaurant next door. Bring your insect repellent for the evenings.
This is a good place to stay for a night or two, especially if you are doing a border crossing and Migración is right across the street. The restaurant is pretty good but maybe a little expensive. The soups are terrific and that is usually what I get ( sopa Azteca or Sopa Negra). The room are okay and clean. The staff is very nice and helpful.
We got stuck at the border to Nicaragua so we decided to have dinner at Hotel Wilson. We loved the decor as it was modern and very well kept. The food was good, and after dinner when I went to pay they gestured for me to go back and they brought us some sort of dessert in a small container for each if us. Not sure what it was, almost like a solidish yogurt but I liked it. There was a language barrier but that's our fault for not learning Spanish faster. There was lots on the menu to chose from.
Just passed through for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The portions are big, food is tastey, and prices are good. Got nachos, typical platter, and chicken with rice. Over 7 yrs living in Central America. Waiter was attentive, food served pretty quick, and we got a table in the shade with a fan.
We were there for a missons trip so didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. They don't have a booking system, so upon arrival our double rooms were magically changed to singles. After a back and forth for 15 minutes, got the rooms we wanted. The hotel room was average for non resort costa rica, and the bathroom was small,but it was clean.The bar food wasn't bad. It was good to use as a base for a missions trip. Also the breakfast included was traditional costa rican food as well, which suited our needs.
I stayed here while on a mission trip for two weeks. Overall it was fine, but has its flaws. We had a triple room which was decent sized, one double and two singles. That only left room for one chair. There was also only one night stand. We requested another from the cleaning women and received one. Some of the rooms are updated, others not. Some of the rooms have fridges, ours did not. The jalouise window was missing and the management repaired it with packaging tape. The room did have a TV and AC. Also there was hot water and Internet. At one point the hotel was full and the Internet was difficult. Most of the time it worked slow but fine. I preferred to sit in the restaurant which had a good connection. There is a small parking area which has a gate that I don't think was ever shut. Our room had a fountain outside which was loud but usually turned off by 11. The rooms near the water tank are noisy as the pump comes on whenever anyone uses water. For a small rural town, the hotel is one I would stay in again.…
It's relatively cheap for a/c, double bed and running water. There is a tv with Spanish dubbed movies and local channels. Breakfast is fine, pinto Gallo style. Service is reasonable without smiles! It's close to the pier but a ten minute walk from the bus station. There is another restaurant next door that did good food and is run by a slightly strange guy. Offered travel advice about the border crossing.
We've been staying at this hotel every time we make a visa run to Nicaragua. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, breakfast is free, the staff is friendly and courteous (which seems to be true through out Costa Rica) and it's conveniently located. The price is extremely reasonable and they have free secure parking. Give it a try on your next Los Chiles visa run.
We've stayed at this property 5 times now, beginning in May 2014. The rooms are generally clean and fairly well appointed. Our most recent stay, however, was disappointing at best. Our room (#28) was equipped with a box spring, rather than a mattress, precluding the possibility of a good night's sleep. Naturally we discovered this after we had used all other aspects of the room. Additionally, there seems to be some sort of breach, in that during a middle of the night visit to "el baño", I was greeted by a small vampire bat flapping about my feet! Our dinner was somewhat less than edible, having ordered the (previously good) filet mignon cooked "raro" only to receive something more like a churrasco, cooked to the taste and texture of, well, ...... Upon reporting these issues to management, politely and quietly, we were offered lunch "on the house", which we, of course, declined. I worked MANY years in the hospitality industry and find it hard to believe that these issues were taken so lightly. We will probably stay there again, but will a) check the bed b) check the bathroom and assure that the ventanillas are closed and no other "guests" have taken up residence and c) will eat dinner somewhere else.…
We were travelling by land from El Salvador to Costa Rica and crossed the new San Pancho/Las Tablillas border late in the afternoon. Decided to stay at the Tulipan instead of pushing on. Beds were comfortable. Room is air conditioned. There is secure guest parking. Cable TV and WiFi. Negatives were a non functioning remote control for the TV, and there was no hot water. A nice breakfast (eggs, gallo pinto, toast, and coffee) is included in the rate. I would stay here agian.
