Guests will have access to all of our facilities. The only thing we charge for are the room safes ($1 per day). Everything else is included in your rate.
Interaction with Guests
The owners, Eric and Mike, father and son, work at the hotel 7 days a week, so it is likely one of us will be there when you stay. Ask at the front desk and we would be more than happy to come and say hello.
Adventure Inn is located in the secluded neighborhood of Ciudad Cariari. It is close to both the city center and the airport (10 minutes from each), but not close enough that you get the noise or the crime from the city. Many people find our area relaxing and peaceful.
Only 1 block from our front door is the public bus stop to go either to the airport or San Jose for less than $1 per person. If you have a car, we provide free parking on site. If you are interested in renting one, contact us and we will get you the best deal, guaranteed.
Other Things to Note
One thing that we specialize in is setting up the best Costa Rican tours for our guests. We have over 50 tours that we can recommend to you. Let us know and we will make all the arrangements for you for no extra fee.
We stayed here on our last night in Costa Rica before leaving to the airport. We arrive late and left early. It was nice having a shuttle to the airport. The only downside was that we stayed at this place specifically because it listed washer and dryer and what is actually offered is laundry service at a set time. Comfy bed, nice selection of books, and close to airport.
We are sorry but AirBnB does not have the system set up to recognize hotels, and displays us as a 34 room house with 34 baths, restaurant, bar, pool, business center, gym, etc. In our inquiry and confirmation emails we tell guests but sometimes people book without investigating. However considering free airport transfers, a huge free breakfast, free international phone calls, free Wifi, great location, spacious fully equipped rooms, and a fantastic staff, we offer far more than any house would, and even if we have laundry service rather than you doing your own laundry, we would work out to be far more economical. Taxi rides into and out of San Jose from the airport are $30 each way, just for starters, and our rates are generally between $70 and $110 double occupancy including all the above.
Всегда когда я использовал Airbnb мне удавалось забронировать действительно уникальное жилье (как и написано в разделе "О нас" на сайте Airbnb). Но это жилье которое я забронировал оказалось обычным отелем. Соответственно по приезду встречает персонал на рецепшене, а не хозяин. Общения с хозяином, в котором заключается одна из ценностей Airbnb не происходит. Сам отель не плохой для одной ночи перед вылетом или после прилета. WiFi очень медленный и при обращении к персоналу они ни чего сделать не могут. В номерах чисто, но в ванной бегают мелкие муравьи. Завтрак отличный! Вообщем отель подходит для короткой остановки.
This is Costa Rica, and probably unlike Russia, when you travel with a family of six with children, any food in the room, crumbs or whatever, will quickly be located by the ants and if left long enough, they will eventually carry the food away. We do a thorough job cleaning our rooms, pulling furniture out from the walls etc. but you are always going to have ants, they have a sixth sense to find anything edible that children usually spread around. Thank you for telling us about the weak WiFi in your room, our maintenance people have already fixed the problem.
Stayed for a night before leaving costa rica..great value.. Awesome breakfast..
Excelente estadía, el lugar limpio e impecable, el personal es muy amable y se esfuerza por resolver cualquier tipo de inquietud, vuelvo en octubre y espero volver a quedarme en este agradable lugar. gracias y saludos
I stayed on my last night in Costa Rica and this establishment was comfortable; everyone at the front desk was super nice. I left early in the morning around 4:30am and they packed my breakfast to go which was a nice gesture.
Skip the adventure and San Jose all together. The real adventure is not in this city and certainly not with this Inn.
It begins with the welcome email. "Mike" sent over a four page message packed with sales pitches for tours. Then it mentions that the Inn is a little off the beaten path but in reality, it's located in the most frustrating pocket off of Rt 1 (extremely difficult to find) and isn't near the downtown area AT ALL. You're only close to restaurants that scream America...including their own restaurant which plays CNN and rock music at the 6 a.m. breakfast...welcome to Costa Rica. The breakfast was reheated rice and beans and overcooked eggs which surprised us since we had experienced such fresh and flavorful food everywhere else during our trip.
There was barely a greeting when arriving. The room key is monstrously large that it's impossible to fit into your pocket when heading out to explore. And the rooms lack any comforting decor or beauty.
Last but not least, there was a used bar of soap on the ground of our shower when we arrived.
I'm sorry to leave such a forward and unpleasant review Mike because I'm sure the Adventure Inn may have been totally hip years ago, but it seems like a lot of things are slipping. The lack of warmth and cleanliness made this the least welcoming place during our stay.
