This was one of 5 hotel accommodations I stayed at during my Costa Rica vacation. Service here is good, staff is friendly and accommodating. Room and grounds are very clean. Frequently saw staff maintaining property and landscaping daily. I saw hummingbirds, lizards and butterflies on the grounds. I've seen some reviews mentioned noise at this location.

A nice place for a quick night, but there are better places in Liberia if you would like to spend more than a night. The new rooms are nice, although the air conditioning is quiet noisy. The place was really ridden with mosquitoes when we were there. the breakfast buffet is very basic and we were advised to only serve... More

Stayed here one night upon landing in Liberia. In case of any flight delays and to also give the kids a break before heading to the Arenal, we stayed here. For what you pay you can't expect updated rooms! Though you will find clean rooms and grounds! Plus you get a nice breakfast the following day!

I had a one night stay in this hotel before I took my early morning flight. I can only say that it is an average hotel. My room was tucked in the back corner near the cleaning station.

I just don't understand complaining about decor (which I thought was just fine) or bugs in a tropical country. I visited Costa Rica for nearly three weeks and stayed in 6 different hotels and one private apartment, ranging from $38-$150 per night. I found Las Espuelas ranked as my 2nd favorite during my trip. Everything was very clean and little... More

Very hard to find. With road construction it's easy to miss the sign. Supposed to be a Best Western don't look for that sign. It's simply Las Espuelas. Food was good. Room was clean but plain. The included breakfast was local Tico and very good. For $68. A night it's a good deal. Pool was refreshing and clean. Had to... More
