Not a 5 star hotel but clean and priced right. The service from the employees is outstanding. Lilly at the reception desk was always available to help us set up tours or answer stupid gringo questions. At the bar both Priscilla and Jolene go out of there way to make your trip a fun experience. Both are a lot of...

Only in San Jose for one day. Decided to stay at the Sportsmans. Inside is simple. Good food.good drinks. All at a low price. Rooms looked like they were from the 1920's..old..simple, but everything you need. Women were plentiful and low key. Hotel is downtown. Blocks from the Del Rey. Not somewhere you want to vist with your kids or...

Went here 3 times in 4 days and enjoyed it. I am just speaking of the bar and not the hotel. The Superbowl party was awesome and our waitress was great. Went the other nights. Not a real crowded night and only a few patrons and girls in there. Still much better than the non stop pressure of Del Rey....

I've been in Costa Rica 7 years and heard nothing but good things about the Sportsmens lodge. For the most part the staff is friendly and helpful. Carla behind the bar is fantastic,as well as the rest of the serving staff. I hate to say this but other than the bar the place is seriously outdated, carpet in the hallways...

Stayed here three weeks, yes 3 weeks, from 17 October to 7 November. It's uphill from the other hotels along Avenida Central and is a blessing for those that have allergy and sinus problems that are aggravated by diesel and other vehicle exhaust that is all over the main drag. Even so it is still a short walk to the...

This is a Sports bar/hotel with the flair of a frat house. The hotel has the vintage Costa Rica look with many modern large screen TV through out the bar area. If it is on the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB, or Nascar, you will be able to watch it there. Oh, soccer too! All the staff from owner to housekeeping...
