We stayed for 1 night for 2 reasons: we came from Guanacaste after 7 day vacations and needed a place to get some rest AND because we took a promotion. In general it's good for a night or if you have a small budget and want to spend more money on adventure tours. Room is just what you need: comfortable beds and a bath. Towels were very clean. We didn't use the pool but we took a look at it and looked clean.
Staff was super nice and friendly. The restaurant next to it it's just what we call in CR "bueno, bonito y Barato" (good, nice and cheap). Indeed food was delicious! Hotel in general is close to everything and in the main road.

I spent 3 days at Hotel Arenal Rossi, very close to the hot springs. Nice place to stay, for a reasonable price. There was excellent service, and they booked all my tours.
There was a restaurant next to the hotel "cheap and delicious".

This place was an absolute complete disgrace! We stayed here only one night, only because the nice place across the street was sold out. After we stayed here one night, it became alot more obvious why they had availability and across the street did not. The room we stayed in at The Hotel Arenal Rossi was filthy, there were bugs everywhere, and the windows didn't even close completely and securely. This is an outdated motel that could use some major renovations.

Very basic accommodations but clean and reasonably priced. Hotel manager was disappointingly unhelpful in arranging a tour for me; wound up walking into town and arranging my own.

This hotel offers no "frills", but you don't pay for them either. The rooms were airconditioned, clean, and had a refridgerator. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Th resturand and included breakfast were good too. If you want to lounge around a hotel all day, this place probably isn't for you. If you want a comfortable bed with basic services, as a bse for the days avtivities, this is a great place.
