Clean, spacious room and bathroom were maintained daily. The murals in our room and all around the property added to the level of comfort. Breakfast included fresh tropical fruit, juices and the usual egg dishes. The neighbourhood was safe and quiet and there were a number of hotels within walking distance.

I have stayed in many hotels in San Jose, and this one is my favorite. It is a perfect balance of cost, convenience to the airport, comfort, and value. The rooms are clean, air conditioning strong, and the restaurant quality and price are exceptional. WiFi is strong and stable. As a bonus the pool and Jacuzzi are convenient, clean, and... More

My husband & I stayed only 1 night in this very nice little hotel with a lot of character. I certainly would have been happy to stay longer. The room was very spacious and comfortable after a long day of travel. The staff was very helpful & the breakfast was terrific. We did have a hard time finding the hotel... More

This hotel is straight out of the 50's. Bait and switch prices. Air conditioner sounds like a jet engine. Breakfast was poor. Try the Comfort hotel just down the road. Everything is poor quality and very old. They need a total renovation to be recommended.

Our happiest guests are here to experience the real Costa Rica and start with a positive attitude. This review is mostly untrue, all I can do is respond. The price we give you is all you need to pay, less 10% for cash if you book direct. Perhaps he got burned booking through a third party then blamed us, always... More

Only spent one night here after our flight from London and before an early start for Tortuguero. Really enjoyed it. Staff were friendly, food was very good and we liked the feel of the place even though we had a thunderstorm for the whole evening. The decoration is a great feature and I wish I'd read through all of the... More

My wife and I stayed one night at Adventure Inn as we moved our vacation from the Southern Caribbean Coast to the Central Pacific Coast. The Adventure Inn was conveniently located near the Pan American Highway and San Jose Airport. The Cariari area is nice and feels safe. A couple of things of note 1) the assistance they offered on...

We decided to spend our last night in CR close to the airport and booked a room last minute. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. The room was clean and large. We also dined at the bar for a nice easy dinner. FREE breakfast was a huge bonus. Highly recommend!!

We holidayed in Costa Rica (Ojochal) for 10 days in early May and stayed at Adventure inn for 1 night either end of our holiday as it was so convenient to SJO airport, and it also had excellent reviews here on TripAdvisor.

I cannot express how grateful I am to Adventure Inn for providing my group two wonderful nights for our Costa Rica trip! We spent our first and last night of our 12 day excursion there and our stays were both amazing! Eric Robinson is amazing to work with pre-trip.

When you book through a third party such as Expedia, they withhold your contact information so we need to wait for you to contact us first before we can send you the free airport transfer information, not our fault. It says on the Expedia website to contact the hotel for airport transfer information, not our fault if you don't. By... More
