Super cute hotel at an awesome rate. It was connected to a decent restaurant. The restaurant is romantic at night and we ate there almost every night. The walls of our room were thin and the neighborhood was a little sketchy, but I felt safe though. There was a corner store not too far away and a major Shopping Center... More

Someone has spent a lot of money on common area tv's, lampshades, art and glass. If you go there you will see what I mean. The bed was average, certainly not sumptuous, but ok. I slept. The room and the common areas are spotlessly clean and the staff are pleasant. Our room was on the ground floor, just off reception... More

First part of our trip in Costa Rica was in San Jose. The Dunn Inn is a nice small hotel that's pretty much around everything. It's no more than. 5-7 minute walk to the downtown area where you get to experience some local shopping and food. The staff at Dunn Inn were great at giving recommendations to us for places... More

First time in CR had a good time staff very friendly and helpful hotel is a few blocks from the action but its all walking distance from town or a quick taxi ride.Rooms have what you need nothing fancy but clean and comfortable my only complaint is that if you're a light sleeper and can be noisy

This hotel is good location, central. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good too and its included. I only stayed 2 nights and i juts came to it to sleep only. Good for what it was needed. The outside looks very run down but inside is decent. Dont expect a fancy hotel. Service and staff was good though.

Cute hotel. Reception staff (Jacob, Jose & others I don't know names of) were exceptionally nice and helpful. All the rooms have unique names in addition to the room number. Very Quaint! Our room was supposed to have to double beds, but was actually one double and a roll away bed. Bathrooms were very nice, all tile- even on walls.... More

Good clean inexpensive and safe option in San Jose, staff is very friendly, rooms are clean, basic rooms are TINY but functional, I recommend getting the deluxe room instead for a few dollars more. Be aware they charge 10 per night for an extra person in the room.

This is a nice and clean hotel in a good location in San Jose. Rooms were excellent and staff is friendly. The bar/restaurant was pretty good. Breakfast is minimal which is why I rate it a 4 instead of 5.
