“What more could you want?”
Reviewed March 30, 2010

We stayed at Adventure Inn the nite we arrived and again the evening prior to our departure flight.
A clean room. Comfortable beds. Warm shower. Air conditioning, if you need it. Good complimentary breakfast. Attentive staff. Reasonable price. Taxi paid for. Only a few minutes from the airport. What more could you want?
Caution: the traffic jams near the airport are becoming quite horrendous. Give yourself extra time on the morning of your departure flight to get to the airport. You have to then find the counter to pay for your "departure tax" and fill out the departure form prior to getting in line for your airline. The good news is that it is all fairly efficient.

The location was perfect since it was our start and departure point. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was good as well as the dinner. The internet only seams to work when you are near the computers as we couldn't get it in our first room down the hall from the jacuzzi. We weren't there long enough to take advantage of the jacuzzi or the surroundings. The wake up call was on time and the taxi was waiting promptly as requested, even at 3:30 am.

Great Airport Hotel. We stayed there on our way in and out of costa rica. Free breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Rooms were pretty nice. The staff was helpful, especially with transportation. I definitely recommend.

My friend and I went for dental and medical. The inn was very nice, very clean and the free breakfast was delicious. We had a free shuttle to and from the airport. The staff arranged an awsome whitewater rafting trip for us. We have decided ti make the Adventure inn our home base for all our trips to Costa Rica. Also it was a nice neighborhood, within walking distance to an A.M P.M. a mall and a large grocrey store..

For our vacation in Costa Rica we make any reservations except one; adventure inn. There we met Eric. He arranged everything for us for the entire vacation; hotels, transportation and trips. It was great. Rafting, jungletours and Hotsprings; everything was included for a very good price. We had a great time and were positively surprised about every single part of the trip.

We were with a group of 9 and would like to recommend Adventure Inn to everyone. It's close to San Jose and the perfect start for your vacation!

A group of us stayed at the Adventure Inn while making connections to Tamarindo from San Jose both in Feb and Mar of this year. The location of the place is ideal, just 5 minutes away from the airport - and they even pay your taxi fare to or from the airport. The rooms were spacious and clean, the staff courteous and helpful and you cannot beat the price. The price of the hotel also included breakfast!

We would certainly stay there again and will recommend this hotel to our friends.

The rooms were very large with high ceilings, a nice seating area, and were very, very clean. It was a great value. Loved that they paid for the taxi -one less thing we had to worry about- and the free breakfast was very good. We were surprised at how big the portions were and each breakfast was cooked fresh to order instead of the tradtional buffet you typically get at US hotels. Nice neighborhood near the hotel. It was nice to be able to go for a walk after our long flights. It only took about 10 -15 minutes by taxi to get to the hotel so good choice when flying into or out of San Jose. We stayed the first and last nights of our trip and it worked out perfectly for us. We will definitely stay here again.
