We recently spent 2 nights at the Monteverde Inn during a week's stay in Costa Rica. We got to the area at dusk and had a little trouble finding the hotel due to it's remote location at the end of a narrowing and steep dirt road. While rustic and simple, the rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. In inquiring about the history of the inn we were not surprised to learn that it was originally developed as a biological research station as it maintains much of that atmosphere today. The shower had plenty of hot water and excellent water pressure. The breakfasts were simple and filling. We took advantage of the guided night hike and it's reduced rates for hotel guests - it was one of the highlights of our trip. We also enjoyed exploring the forest during the daylight hours. It was clear enough at night that we could see the lights from Pacific coastal towns. As other guests have noted, the walls are a little thin allowing for the transmission of voices and noises from the adjacent rooms. I cannot say enough good things about the friendly host, Anthony. He helped us make last minute reservations to a couple of the attractions at "Extreme" on the other side of town. When, in our haste to make that reservation I left a folder with our itinerary and departure info at the desk, he emailed me and looked up some important information for me that was in my folder. He also made some adjustments to our bill when he wasn't able to provide the room that we had originally requested. We ate at the nearby restaurant Lucia and found it to be excellent. I would recommend trying to find the hotel during daylight hours as there is a dizzying array of eclectic signs to sort through on your way to hotels and attractions in the Santa Elena/Monteverde area.
