Adventure Inn is an oasis in the middle of busy San Jose. It was a great way to start our 2-week Costa Rica vacation. The staff were very kind and upgraded us to a junior suite. We loved the paintings on the walls of our room and the wall art on the whole property. We really enjoyed the pool as...

Reviewed February 23, 2017

This was the second time in two years we have stayed at The Adventure Inn for both our incoming stay and out-going stays in Costa Rica. What can I say that I didn't say last year? The customer service is excellent. We accidentally left two small bags at The Inn at the beginning of the trip and they were nice...

This is the second trip I have stayed at Adventure Inn. It is reliably friendly, comfortable, clean and accommodating. This is especially important to me because I go to and from Adventure Inn to more remote areas of Costa Rica where the accommodations can be "rustic" at best. It is wonderful to return to comfort, good food and few worries....

We stayed at the Adventure Inn on a Saturday night in April -- our last night in Costa Rica. Didn’t spend much time there, just a quick-hit in late, out early. Check-In was easy. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, large enough for two adults and three kids, with two queen beds and a...

Adventure Inn was pretty close to the airport. I received email reminders before our visit and departure. We stayed there at the front and back end of our visit to Costa Rica. The little restaurant had good options and the murals on the wall made this hotel welcoming to CR. The staff was helpful and pleasant and they packed us...

A lovely, friendly, comfortable hotel, spotlessly clean and bigger and better than it looks from first impressions. We stayed here for a total of 4 nights, 3 at the beginning of our holiday and 1 prior to our return flight home. It is primarily used as an airport hotel, about 15 mins away, but we found it to be just...

We we're really surprised just how nice this hotel was. It didn't look great from the outside but inside all was exemplary; super service, well maintained property and quiet well kept rooms. Marco and staff does a super job.

People often tell me that Adventure Inn makes them feel like they are in Costa Rica with a nice mix of stonework, plants and indigenous and Tico art, and we seem to keep adding to it all the time! Coming soon, a volcano mural beside the pool!

We love this place, and stayed here last year too. The beds are super comfy and the pool and jacuzzi are lovely and refreshing. Breakfast is delicious - all the food (& milkshakes!) we had here were fantastic. The location is great too, and the staff are very friendly and helpful! I highly recommend staying here - happy travels!

This was just a one night stay at the end of the vacation, but it was great. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean, and the food at the restaurant was delicious. I left early the next morning so they packed me a breakfast to take with me which I thought was very considerate.

So much has already been written about Adventure Inn! I picked this hotel to start, end, and in the middle of our trip (breaking up a long drive from the Caribbean side to the Pacific Coast) after a recommendation on the Two Weeks In Costa Rica blog.

Very kind of you, I've been blessed with two lovely ladies who have been able to capture Costa Rica in their murals that deck out most of the hotel, and are still adding to it every month. This was a very kind review. Sometimes with reviews like this, I am a bit afraid we won't be able to live up...
