We arrived in the Arenal area w/o reservations. Stopped at another more posh place, "Montana" something, just north of La Fortuna that had no vacancies. An employee made a call and told us he had a friend who had a place. Ignoring all my better instincts, we let him in the car and he directed us to Coloso Arenal where he met his friends and went on his way. An extremely nice young man, who's name unfortunately escapes me. Coloso Arenal may be the cleanest motel I've ever stayed in. (and I'm 62 and traveled in my job!) It was truely spotless. The owner is extremely accomodating and friendly. Breakfast, which is included, featured cooked to order eggs, toast, fresh fruit etc. Very nice meal in a very nice setting. You can't beat this place, especially for the price. My only suggestion would be to replace the dark lamp shades, that make the rooms dark. We arrived late after a long day and were ready to crash, so it was no big deal, but if you wanted to read it would be a challenge.
