I had been warned and also read a lot of advice about not staying in San Jose because it was shady and there wasn't much to see. Despite the advice, I still wanted to see the city. I'm glad I chose the Hotel Don Carlos...More

For about $85 dollars a night, the Don Carlos hotel, located about a 2 minute drive to the road to Limon, is a great find. The neighborhood is a little sketchy, or seems so at least, though there is a parking garage that is closed,...More

Sorry I didn't answer sooner. We didn't see any noteworthy attractions nearby, but found the parks, streets, shops and markets nearby safe to walk to. We did get out about 10 in the morning, and felt no qualms about being... More

I don't know if it is available for the dates you need, but I had room #6 when I was there. It has two large beds. I believe that it came to $71 US taxes in per night. Great room, very clean.
