Very nice hotel near the airport. Free shuttle from the airport. The rooms are big and very nice. Clean rooms and a perfect room. The prices are the half of whar we normal pay. Absolutely worth the value. We would for sure come back.

Arrived late into San Jose, free shuttle arranged through web site with web reservation was waiting for us. Room big and clean, breakfast good, rented car through them before left home. All worked fine - even had it picked up from different hotel on our return.

It is a perfect location for those interested in taking one or two days trips. It is outside the city and close to the airport. There is not much to see in the city anyway. The tours picks and return you to the hotel. You can also use the tour to hop to your next stop like Aranel. Most tours...

Pick up from the airport and return back to the airport included with our stay. Breakfast was as good as any place I've stayed and they even had a Canadian themed breakfast plate! Took tours from the list of tours on their website. Both were well worth the price. But make sure you get a receipt, on one of the...

We were very happy with our stay at Adventure Inn. Would I recommend it? Absolutely. We (two adults, two children) planned our own trip through Costa Rica and were looking to pre-book a place to stay on arrival and pre-departure. When we contacted Adventure Inn, we received a friendly response with lots of helpful information. Even from the booking stage,...

if you are like me and like planning your vacation yourself, then do yourself a favor and book your first day of stay here. The hotel us run by a Canadian who loves and knows(!) what North Americans need in Costa Rica. Ask these guys to book a car for you. They'll get you the right kind of car, at...

Adventure Inn is a basic hotel, near the airport, and staffed by lovely people. Dinner was basic, but breakfast was nice, with lots of fresh fruit, and included in the price. I traveled here from the west coast by 'taxi', instead of taking the wild ride via Nature Air! Lots of crazy wind in those skies! My driver--Enrique Leiva <enriquel75@yahoo.com>--was...

We chose the Adventure Inn for it's convenient location close to the airport and free airport transfer. A friendly and efficient greeting awaited us on arrival. Our room was huge, well furnished and decorated and the bathroom provided shampoo and soap. This is another one of those 'Tardis' places - a lot more room than would first appear. There is...

AdventureInn, Owner at Adventure Inn, responded to this review

Our excellent full breakfast begins at 6 am. Unlike any other hotel in our area, service at Adventure Inn starts even before that early hour. Guests leaving before 6 am are told they can give their breakfast tickets to the kitchen the night before and we will make a complimentary take-out breakfast including a ham and cheese sandwich with condiments,...
