4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

This is so much better than 3.5 stars because of their service, warmth and feeling of generosity. It's not cheap and worth every dollar. I left feeling looked after and only there 2 nights. Even feeling a bit at home. That is what star hotels can't compete with. And good on them for forming a coop between like minded small... More

We stayed at the Adventure Inn when we first arrived in Costa Rica and then when we flew out. It was the perfect stop over accommodation for our family, close to the airport but you weren't drowned out by the sound of the planes. It is in a smart residential area close to some good restaurants and a good supermarket.... More

This is the perfect place to either begin or end your trip in Costa Rica. I have stayed several times and am always made to feel more than welcome. The staff is friendly and willing to assist your every need. Beautiful hand paintings of Costa Rican wildlife and vegetation adore the walls throughout. The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable.... More

This was our first stop on a 2-week trip to Costa Rica. Great little inn! Friendly staff, fantastic (and free!) breakfast, free shuttle...what more could you want? The rooms are fairly basic but the rest of the hotel is very nice and not cookie cutter. Our flight came in at night but the receptionist gave us several options within walking... More

This hotel was perfect for catching an early flight out the next morning. The staff is great - front desk, bar, kitchen, valet... everyone!!! The rooms and overall décor has a lot of personality. The breakfast was great. But the highlight was that we left a small piece of jewelry in the room and they mailed it back it to... More

Stayed just one night after flying in to San Jose and before heading the following morning to Tortuguero. The rooms are in sort of average shape -- they are clean, but could use a bit of sprucing up (particularly the bed covers), but the hand painting on the walls is a nice detail. The pool was small, but nice. I... More

Although we didn't spend a lot of time in San Jose. We had a fun time at the Adventure Inn. The Hardrock Cafe is just down the road and the airport is minutes away. Fantastic place to stay. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Great pool and great amenities.

I have been using the Adventure Inn every time I visit Costa Rica. I am usually traveling by myself so need a place that makes me feel safe, has a great staff and takes care of my needs.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The hotel, customer service, room, location, pool and hot tub (solar heated), and food are all wonderful. I can't say enough nice things about this place. Walking distance to a Fresh Market and some lovely restaurants; about a 2 dollar cab at night. Will be back. My favorite so far in San Jose to stay.
