“Always Nice Place to Stay”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

After struggling through the confusing streets of greater San Jose, I can always depend that I'll be in a lovely, comfortable place whenever I arrive at the El Rodeo Inn. Once you enter their gates you are in a different world of tranquility, compared to the Belen Highway, and energetically enforced security. The rooms are clean and well decorated, and the staff is consistently well trained and friendly. Highly recommend.

This hotel is the ideal spot when just arriving in San José, Costa Rica or for your last night before catching an early flight. Only 10 min from airport. Spacious clean rooms. Good steakhouse next door.

I stayed there for four days with a friend while I was in San Jose for a conference. The hotel is reasonably priced and close enough to the airport. So we chose it over the conference hotel. The rooms were big, clean and nice. The biggest plus point is the restaurant of the hotel, which serves really good steak.

We ended up at El Rodeo because we were accidentally overbooked at our first hotel for the beginning of our 10 day trip to Costa Rica with our 3 young children. After arriving and seeing our room, we were actually glad we had been sent there! The people are really nice, the rooms are really clean and the grounds are well kept. The breakfast is AWESOME!
It's not far from the airport, so we actually came back here for our last night before flying home to the US. It's a great place to stay!!!

We stayed one night, in a double standard room, a good hotel for a short term stay. While there were not many in room amenities, the room was clean and spacious. WiFi wasn't working for us in the room but worked fine in the business center/game room. We arrived on a Sunday and had to leave the hotel for dinner as their on site restaurant closes earlier ( I think 5p) on Sundays, but it did give us a chance to explore the area. Breakfast was included, the best out of the 3 hotels we stayed at.

After a 23 hour door to door flight this was just what we were after on our first night in Costa Rica. Only about 10 mins from the airport costing about $15 in a taxi. Nice big rooms with double bed each :-), very quiet and nice breakfast the next morning of pancakes, scrambled eggs etc. Not an awful lot to do in the area so you wouldn't linger here long but for first or last night - top marks!

Nearly impossible to find and the staff could not give any directions beyond it is close to the Panasonic. If you are not familar with San Jose good luck. Air conditioning broke after about 2 hours. Not unexpected in the tropics but this was the only place in Costa Rica we had ants and geckos in the room. Pool was dirty, hot tub cold. Overall not impressed

Definitely do not try to stay here your first nite right off a plane if you get in late. You won't find it.
