“Great family hotel”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

In a town where hotels are often potluck, this one doesn't disappoint. Large rooms (we had the family suite), clean and organized. In a safe and quiet corner in the city, conveniently close to the airport and Escazu. The staff were very helpful and friendly, with most speaking English.
I can recommend this for both families and business travelers on a budget.

Room Tip: Communicate with the hotel to find out what will suit your needs. We had a huge family grout and the...

I went to San José for a conference and decided to take my family with me. We chose the Adventure Inn because of the great combination between location, price and the pool. It was a great surprise to see that we got much more than that. ALL staff was nice and helpful. The food was great. The room was big enough for the four of us, they provided a crib, a coffee maker and they would even give us a glass of milk for the kids before they went to bed. Very child friendly.

Adventure Inn was our last stay on the way out of Costa Rica. Expecting just a quick night that was not really part of our vacation, turned in to one of the most pleasant stays we have ever had. Before we even arrived, Eric (owner) was so kind to help with thorough and detailed directions which are a big plus driving back into San Jose. The rest of the staff did not break from this great customer service, and made us feel like it was the main resort of our stay. Pleasant greetings at the door, helpful and not pushy bellman service, and friendly wait staff. They have a beautiful new pool area, comfortable/clean rooms, and a tasty restaurant with great local flavor. On top of all that, they even provide free calling to the states, and arranged for a free taxi to the airport. This was my fourth trip to Costa Rica, and I wish I would have discovered them earlier. I highly recommend you discover them if you are lucky to be headed to the land of Pura Vida. Darrin

All I can say is thank you so much to our honoured guests for all the very kind reviews recently. I just hope new guests don't expect too much for prices around $100 per night. We are far from perfect, but it is incentive like this that revs our motor, and keeps us trying even harder.

We have been here several times. Each time is as good or better than before. The food and atmosphere is great. This small hotel is located near the airport San Jose. Easy access to the the airport and San Jose. Near the Pan American highway gives this a bonus. Nicely decorated, The price includes a great breakfast. The small restaurant has always served excellent food. The staff speaks fluent English for those who cannot speak Spanish. of the past 3 years it still comes ahead of even some of the chain hotels.cannot come close to the food and friendliness. This is our favourite hotel near the Airport and in fact the San Jose area. The perfect place to relax and chill.

Room Tip: All the rooms are nicely painted. the top floor at the back is nice as it also has a small balcony...

My wife and I are year round expats living in Nosara. From time to time we come to San Jose to take care of legal matters, etc. We were delighted to find the Adventure Inn. It is just the right combo of casual and profesional. The staff is lively and interactive, rooms clean and spacious, and their in-house café is lovely. We also enjoyed the newly upgraded restaurant and shopping a short walk away.Adventure Inn is a great value as well!

We stayed our last night in San Jose at Adventure Inn. I wish we had stayed there more! It is a smaller Inn but was nice, and greatly priced.We had to leave at 3:30AM to catch a flight and the staff packed us breakfast to take with us. It was extremely thoughtful! I would definately recommend Adventure Inn. The rooms were clean and quite comfortable beds.
