Had an early flight and decided to stay over at the Adventure Inn. What a wonderful surprise. the shuttle was clean and driver pleasant. The food was wonderful and especially the complimentary breakfast after the night's stay. This place was beautiful, clean, helpful and courteous staff. The room was much more than expected. The pool, reception, dining, bar and rooms...

Flew in to San Jose in the evening and were greeted by the shuttle driver arranged through Adventure Inn. Close drive from airport. Food at the hotel was good, the morning we were getting ready to start our journey we had the complimentary breakfast, our first Costa Rican breakfast, quite authentic which we later came to find out. When we...

It was our fourth stay at this hotel and we always enjoy it a lot. The rooms are very spacious and have everything you need. It has a pool, something very important if you are travelling with kids. The location of the hotel is just perfect: close to the international airport, close to the cities of San Jose and Alajuela...

After staying at the Adventure Inn at least 5 times, I am even more impressed each time I'm there. I am a Hotel owner myself and 3 hours away from the Adventure Inn. But each time I have to leave the country, I stay there to be close to the airport. I recommend all my guest to stay there if...

We had spent most of time in San Juanillo and La Fortuna -- our connection in San Juanillo- Paski Adventures ( great too ) recommended that when we fly out of San Jose try the Adventure Inn. Most American gravitate to Amer Hotels, making a big mistake. The staff at the Adventure Inn were outstanding. Great English speakers. Food was...

I don't get it. I booked this place solely based on it's rating and was thoroughly disappointed. First off, everything is just old. The showers alternate between 5 seconds of hot water and 5 seconds of cold water. The gym, if you can even call it that, is a joke. To get to the market down the street you have...

AdventureInn, Manager at Adventure Inn, responded to this review

Thank you for your comments. Please note that we take all constructive criticism seriously. Adventure Inn was built in three stages, 1996, 2001 and 2010, so to say we are old doesn't quite reflect the reality. Perhaps it is all the stone work we have added, mature plants and our resident artist's wall paintings that give it an impression it...

The room was huge, the service was friendly, the restaurant convenient and the free shuttle to the airport quick and timely. Considering the short amount of time we usually spend in San Jose (usually just the night before an early flight out) this worked out beautifully. There's even a cool little pool outside the bar.

We stayed here at the start and the end of our visit to Costa Rica. The staff was friendly and efficient. The accommodation was clean and quiet. When you consider the included very nice breakfast, transportation to the airport, and phone call back to the states the room rate is very reasonable. Should we return to Costa Rica the Adventure...

Surw, there's fast, reliable free wi-fi and a nice pool by the bar, but the highlight of our visit was the accommodating staff.
