“Suitable but not special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Location is the best thing going for this affordable spot in Manzanillo. The room is standard, more or less like an older Motel 6. If I get back to Manzanillo one day I will probably seek out a different place to stay, mainly because I felt the innkeeper was a little on the rude side compared with everyone else I met in Costa Rica.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with friends

Something Different was what we paid for. It's really cheap which was great but the room was extremely small (just a bed). One good thing is that we had our own bathroom with hot water.
The owner was nice to us and it was a really good choice for staying in Manzanillo just two nights and not spend a lot.

My friend and I stayed here for two nights back in August. The rooms are clean, spacious and fit two double beds with room to spare.

The owner is very nice and extremely helpful. Her children are adorable as well. She takes very good care of her hotel. She was also helpful in acting as a go between by relaying messages to us since we did not have a cellphone and we were trying to set up a tour of the park with one of the local guides.

If you're looking for a guide for the park who speaks English, I would recommend Abel. You can reach him through the guide/ranger office. The town is so small that everyone knows everyone. His brother and sister-in-law own the soda on the right when you're driving into town that is near the park/guide office. Abel is very informative and personable. We enjoyed our tour with him.
