The inn was lovely, clean, and a very comfortable and convenient place to stay in between adventures in Costa Rica. It is handy to the airport, banks, a grocery store, and restaurants, although the food at the inn was excellent. The staff were very pleasant, cheerful, and helpful. We loved the murals! Thanks Eric, Mike, and crew!

Thanks, value, convenience and service are our main goals, location is our best asset. Many people let Adventure Inn be their stepping stone in and out of Costa Rica with free airport transfers, while others stay for the perfect weather and plethora of exciting and interesting tours leaving our front door each day.

Second time staying there and loved it again. Great staff, comfortable rooms and you cannot beat it for the price. Free shuttle to and from the airport is certainly a bonus and it has a market and a few restaurants and stores within walking distance. Special gracias to Kattia and Iris who made every restaurant visit and pleasure. Karen at...

From the moment we first made contact with Eric many months ago, they have organised everything for us. Paula was amazing. We just e-mailed our list of tours that we wished to do and she arranged everything for us. Everything went like clockwork. The hotel is lovely. So refreshing to see paintings on the walls and not the usual cheap...

We stayed in this hotel due to the proximity to the airport. They offered the service of booking our rental car through them and we were able to drop off the car at the hotel and take the shuttle to the airport. Because our shuttle was early they offered us a breakfast to go which was ready when we went...

Thank you, we prefer people tell us if they want the ground floor with no steps or the breezier, brighter second floor. Our guard will assist you with your luggage. It really isn't a noisy hotel, but some people don't read our signs to please stay quiet between 8 pm and 8 am, often with kids.

After reading reviews here on Trip Advisor about The Adventure Inn, our family of four (with kids ages 11 and 13) stayed here our last night in Costa Rica before catching our flight the next morning. The mural paintings on the walls throughout the hotel and the pool area made for a fun ambiance to an otherwise old facility. The...

Adventure Inn was built around 2001 but some people confuse our extensive new stone work, statues, extensive art and mature plants with an old facility, please look closer. We beg people to book direct but unfortunately these people booked through a third party, Expedia, where they paid too much, Expedia charges a built in 25% commission, they were denied a...

I stayed here my first night in CR- came straight from the airport. They made everything VERY easy, and it eased a lot of my anxiety about being in a new country all alone. Transport from the airport was simple and free, and the room was clean and comfortable. Staff was nice.

We book a lot of single first time visitors to Costa Rica, probably because we give them the information prior to their arrival that they need to reassure them and help them make educated decisions regarding their travel plans. Plus check out my free website SAFE.TRAVEL which is full of all sorts of Third World safety travel tips, with a...

My wife and I were treated to great service from the time we hit the front desk to the moment we left the next morning. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone waiting overnight for a flight.

We stayed here the night before an early morning flight and it was very comfortable. The front desk staff were very informative and accommodating. We asked for a wake up call and not only did we get the call but someone knocked on our door 5-10 minutes later to make sure we were up. It's easy to fall back to...

Thanks, I am so proud of my staff, they'd take to gold medal if there was a competition, not so much for being correct, but for having a big heart, and caring about our guest's happiness. People tend to overlook a lot of faults if they know the person is trying.

This was our second time visiting Adventure Inn (we were there two years ago) and our stay again, was fabulous. The convenience of getting to Adventure Inn from the airport from a late night flight is priceless, as well as getting back to the airport early in the morning. Rooms are very clean and quiet.

Ya, we are perfect if you are flying into Costa Rica one day and flying out on a domestic flight (Nature Air or Sansa) the next, free convenient shuttles both ways included in fairly reasonable rates at Adventure Inn...value is what we try to emphasize.
