“Comfortable, quiet and pleasant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2008

We stayed at the El Rodeo on our first and last nights of a Gate1 Travel tour. No complaints. The hotel is comfortable, the rooms are spacious and it adjoins the Rodeo Restaurant which is a local steak house and quite popular with the locals. Travelers should know this hotel is quite near the airport ( 20 minutes or less) but is not in San Jose and requires a taxi ride if you want or need to head to town.

The neighborhood adjoining the hotel is NOT for walking, especially after dark.

There is a single internet-connected PC, and although it is totally free, you will need to be diligent to find it available. The hotel has a small lobby and bar area, and breakfast served a few hundred yards away in a small facility.

There is a small pool and a hot tub as well.

When choosing a place to stay in Costa Rica I was clear I didn't want to waste time figuring out how to get to places, or crossing the city. El Rodeo Hotel is a small but confortable inn, kind of with a country style but so close to the airport and city! We arrived and were there within 20 minutes, the staff was sincere and friendly and the facilities surpassed our expectations.
Definitely recomended for families, business travelers and leisure travelers.

Nobody seems to know that there is a hotel behind the famous Rodeo steakhouse (great tico style meats and typical dishes).
This is a place if you don't want to stay at a sterile business hotel or chain hotel. This gets you to Costa Rica right when you arrive. Great friendly staff and big rooms. Get the suite with the jacuzzi if it is available. They were pretty low on occupancy when we stayed there, but it seems like after the renovations they did, things will start to happen.

  • Liked — Big rooms and friendly staff
  • Disliked — it rained so we could not use the pool
  • Tips/Secrets — get the suite with the jacuzzi.
