“thanks for a great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We had a great time at the adventure inn. We didn't have big expectations because we were just trying to stay close to the airport for an early flight, but the front staff and bar/restaraunt staff were so friendly and helpful, that we felt very special and really enjoyed our time there. The room was unexpectedly huge, the pool jacuzzi and bar were clean and well cared for. The free breakfast and shuttle to the airport were very helpful. The price was reasonable, and smart. It's very natural for Amricans to book a Holiday Inn, or something that they know. Keeping your cost below them is very smart. I'd stay at the Adventure Inn next time I'm in CR and tell my friends as well.

We stayed here for a week it was excellent, rooms great and large, breakfast included, the greatest staff. Jose the hotel manager was so helpful any thing we asked about he knew, told us lots about valcanos etc. Always smiling sincere. helped us by answering all of our questions about Costa Rica. Front desk all staff were excellent what ever we needed they helped. Mike Corry one of the best bartenders we have ever met, any questions about anything he knew all the answers. Kept us laughing all the time super funny and friendly. Yanett the manager looked after us all the time she was so friendly, again any thing we needed we got. All the staff very professional but had a good time with them also. We will return and I hope all of you great staff will be there.

Room Tip: We were on the seconf floor very quiet, large rooms, clean.

We have stayed here several times, and it has always been a pleasure. We appreciate the boxed breakfasts as we always have an early flight, and the free shuttle to the airport I'd great. The staff is always pleasant and helpful. The in house restaurant is handy, and the staff there is very helpful.

Room Tip: We like the lower floor because we always have a lot of luggage, and we are older so it is easier to...

As a party of 16, we stayed here for one night at the beginning of April after taking an early morning flight from Newark and en route to Montezuma!

The hotel is fantastic value for money - we were greeted by a very friendly team at reception who didn't stop smiling! Most of our rooms were ready at midday but some we had to wait until 2pm for (fair enough). The wifi in the hotel was excellent, accessible from the rooms, restaurant/bar and around the pool. The restaurant/bar is a nice size and the pool and hot tub out the back are also spot on!

The following morning we left, but no before enjoying a fantastic breakfast! Buffet style for cereal/fruit/toast and then an order of something cooked. All included in the rate of the room. Super!

Would highly recommend to anyone spending a night in San Jose who needs to be close to the airport.

Super effort Adventure Inn!

We stayed at the Adventure Inn twice on our most recent visit to Costa Rica: one night on our way into the country and one night on our way out of the country. The Adventure Inn was a great help in getting from one airport in San Jose to another with a nights stay in between. The staff in the lobby were very helpful. The kitchen staff were friendly and helpful as well. With that crazy tree in the dining room, we didn't expect much from the food, but the food was in fact excellent for our meal at lunchtime. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had room 18 one night and room 35 the other night. We felt safe at the hotel and the pool was a refreshing change after a week of high humidity at the Pacific coast. Our daughter (age 9) loved the pool and the unusual layout of the rooms in the hotel. All three members of our family agreed that we would stay at the Adventure Inn next time we need to spend a night in San Jose.

Room Tip: Rooms 33, 34, and 35 are at the back of the hotel and overlook a very quiet residential neighborhood...

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Adventure Inn. I am recently retired and want to economize a bit more when staying in SJ before and after flights. The Adventure Inn delivers! They paid my taxi from the airport! Breakfast is free...wifi is free...my room was large, bed comfy, big ceiling fan, but poor and noisy a/c...bathroom was clean, with a great shower! And a nice cozy pool area next to the bar/restaurant. The best part? They have a container of real ground coffee in the room...with a real coffee maker and china cups! Not these horrible "2-cup" things with coffee packages and paper cups!! Perfect for before breakfast...And they give you a 10% reduction on the bill if you pay w/ cash!

The Adventure inn is older, smaller, cozy and quaint. Staff are helpful and friendly. There are no elevators, but Jose the bellman can lift anything up those stairs! I loved the experience and will return!
