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.

Please come again and use Adventure Inn as your home-base to discover so much inside Costa Rica that differentiates us from all other countries on earth.

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. Fun, friendly, full of good advice, we rented our car through the hotel...

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...

We loved our stay at the Adventure Inn. It was safe, clean, budget friendly and had impeccable service. Amazing all the way around. It is not too far from the airport in a residential neighborhood. Worth the trip!

We stayed at the Adventure Inn Hotel for the first and last night of a round-Costa Rica trip. It is ideally located for the airport, and they have a free shuttle service to get there and back. The rooms are spacious with aircon, TVs and safes if needed. Wifi is throughout the building. The bathrooms were clean and the showers...

There are some pretty basic, rustic and surely inexpensive hotels in Costa Rica that become part of your adventure. Many guests have mentioned coming back to 'civilization' and Adventure Inn is a nice way to finish off their vacation. You can even phone home for free to let them know you are on your way. The Mall Cariari is within...

We stayed here the night before our flight back to the US. The staff is very friendly....almost to a fault. We pulled in after a 5 hour, exhausting drive from Guanacaste back to San Jose. We needed some food (and I needed a glass of wine) the bartenders were very sweet and very talkative and forgetful that we needed food...

Thanks, I have reminded my staff service first, friendliness second, or better, both at the same time! My staff enjoy working here but sometimes forget it's a job and get carried away.

This was a nice hotel to stay at when you have to be near the airport. Shuttle service is provided along with a great breakfast early in the morning before leaving on an early flight. Staff were nice and easy to contact before I left for Costa Rica. I'd recommend staying here.

Our free airport shuttles take about twelve minutes to or from the airport, so you aren't sleeping at the end of a runway, but you aren't too far for a last minute transfer.

Adventure Inn was wonderful. The staff were incredibly helpful. It was lovely staying in a real Costa Rican hotel with its wonderful murals and food and ambience before flying home than a typical US type airport hotel. Thrifty picked up our rental car there so we did not need to drop it off the next morning at 5:00 a.m. and...

We spent our last night in Costa Rica at the Adventure Inn, mainly because of its location close to the airport and the airport shuttle. The staff seemed to be geared towards the services required by those arriving in Costa Rica or those getting ready to depart. They were very efficient and helpful with getting us checked in, confirming our...

Thank you, slowly we are replacing our air conditioners, though they get little use because of the perfect year-round spring-like climate here in the Central Valley of Costa Rica. Most people prefer the gentle natural cooling of our ceiling fans, especially during the night.

Adventure Inn has the best customer service. Complimentary airport shuttle to and from hotel. Delicious breakfast is included in your stay. Eric, the owner, was extremely patient with all of my questions before our arrival and he provided a very detailed explanation of everything via email.
