"We finally found our place to stay in San Jose!"
The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were refreshing, tropical and lovely. Listening to all the exotic birds at breakfast over the pool was perfect. This was better than the Marriott and the Wyndham.

"A great Costa Rican hotel"
My husband and I always try to stay at locally owned hotels to help support local economies and eco-tourism. This hotel met all our requirements. We stayed here as a stopping-off point for our Drake Bay trip. The front desk staff speak English and arranged to have a taxi meet us at the airport (I arranged this via email). They also arranged to have a packed breakfast prepared for us since our flight left before the free traditional breakfast. The room was very comfortable, with nice firm beds. We also ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Great food with very reasonable prices.

This is a nice hotel, very clean with great staff. The breakfast is included, and varies in quality from day to day. On a good day, it's great! Several of the staff speak good English. If you are a light sleeper, request the rooms that are not beside the ice machine!

"Better than expected"
We stayed for a total of three nights in two different rooms and we were very impressed with the cleanliness, decor and comfort of this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Abraham at the front desk made us feel right at home. Beautiful grounds and conveniently located. Felt completely safe. Food was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

"Choose anywhere else."
Unfortunately, there was little good about our experience at El Rodeo. The staff was okay... it felt like they were in training. There was ABSOLUTELY NO WIFI outside of the lobby and the 2 computers they have for guest use. We had no lightbulb in our room lamp, the coffee creamer was chunky powder and there was a wierd siren that went off every 20 minutes all night long. The Steakhouse was good but the resort smelled like dog food... which was strange.

"Close to Airport"
We needed a hotel near the airport and for that reason selected El Rodeo. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms while tidy, I wouldn't describe as 4 star rooms. They seemed to be in the midst of finishing the renovations on them. We ate dinner at the steakhouse and were disappointed. The steaks were very thin and tasted burnt from the flame grilling.

Very nice hotel. We stayed for our final night in Costa Rica to be nearby the airport. Kids found the foosball table and the computer (after a week of no digital interactions). Lunch at the restaurant was great. Sunday night the restaurant closes at 4:30, the hotel bar menu is very limited.

"Off the beaten path on a crazy road"
The hotel itself is nice. Great security and the food at the restaurant was good. Be careful if you are driving because the traffic is insane there during the day. The rooms were good size and updated well. WIFI is ok, but no CR wifi was great. The pool looked dirty so we didn't bother swimming. Not a bad place to spend the night. We would have had breakfast but we had no time. They cook it for you the way it looked.

"Very nice hotel"
While this hotel wasn't the easiest to find, and as we were getting in really late it took a minute to get someone to open the front gate, once we were in the hotel was great. The hotel staff were very helpful and got us everything we needed. The weather was warm but the AC worked right away and cooled the room very quickly. There was a very inviting pool which I didn't get to enjoy, but would have liked to. There was also an outdoor patio area with a TV and a pool table.

old world charm...feels like Spain or Argentine...very horsey place with beautiful saddles in restaurant. great steaks. only problem was broken internet service. In general internet services when it worked in Costa Rica was very slow. Not crowded or busy. Gated hotel like most around San Jose. Felt safe. Large rooms, Super beds. Shower did not drain well..not major issue. Great TV channel selection. Near airport. No shuttle. Just taxis.

It was a little further than expected but when we told the desk clerk what time our flight was he told us the appropriate time to leave. He ordered the taxi and because we needed to leave before breakfast was being served had two boxed breakfast.

"Really Nice Place"
I was really surprised by how nice the El Rodeo Country Inn and Steakhouse was. I booked it for the night before an early flight from San Jose. When they learned that we had to leave before their complimentary breakfast, they made little brown bag breakfasts for us to take on the plane. They made us feel very welcome. (The Steak House was very nice too.)

"Comfy and spacious king suite room - a bit dated."
The hotel experience was better than the restaurant visit by far. The hotel is dated somewhat but clean and cared for rooms, albeit the décor was a wee weird - but had all that one could wish for. The linens were clean though aged though the bed fairly comfortable. If you are a TV fan in English, they have ABC, NBC, CBS and all others are Spanish. The girls in reception were helpful and accommodating, to their credit. While we chose the hotel because we thought we could get a nice meal and a decent room close to the airport on a last night before flight out, we were left feeling just ok and not feeling great about a last night in what was otherwise a fantastic visit to CR. Cannot say anything supportive for the male and a female restaurant manger(s). They were uppity when we went in for a glass of wine in the late afternoon, not quite ready for a meal; they seemed to usher us to a sitting area and made us feel they did not want to dirty up a table if we were not going to order food. Also they had only two very cheap white wine selections on offer, Many red wines, but most were also very cheap wines and quite expensive. The dinner menu (expensive) was nearly entirely red meat, cowboy style. Only one fish item on offer - tilapia - breaded - no thanks. Being put off by the male manager and the horrid decor and not so great menu, we ended up trying out a Peruvian restaurant 300 meters south of the hotel - INKA, but were left disappointed. Rating we give is 6 of 10. No Return.

"A Diamond in the Rough"
It may not be in the nicest neighbourhood but, unless you're planning on going out exploring, that won't be an issue because it's very secure. I can't find a single thing to criticize. Service was great, staff were very friendly and accommodating and was very well maintained - it really didn't show its age. What I liked most though is that it had a very homey feel and theme, unlike the major chains. Our meals in the restaurant were outstanding. I wouldn't even think of looking for somewhere else to stay near the airport on the next trip.

"Peaceful oasis near the airport"
My family recently spent 2 nights at El Rodeo, on both our first and last nights in Costa Rica. Inside the gates were beautifully kept gardens, a swimming pool (which we enjoyed) and tennis courts (which we sadly didn't have time to use). Our kids loved the open-air lounge area with pool table and foosball . The rooms were clean and spacious, beds comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful, arranging an early morning taxi and breakfast bags to go since our outbound flight left before breakfast hours. We had a fabulous dinner at the El Rodeo Steakhouse as well. Our only difficulty was in finding El Rodeo on our return trip - it didn't show up on our GPS. After stopping for help, we found it under El Rodeo Country Inn.

"Convenient-Wheelchair Accessible-Reasonable Price"
We live in Costa Rica and El Rodeo is one of our favourite San Jose hotels. It's very convenient to the Juan Santamaria International Airport and is much more reasonably priced than the "big name" chain hotels which may be a bit closer. The adjoining steakhouse offers a large menu with the sides served family style -- you won't go away hungry! The grounds are well kept and the rooms have huge bathrooms and are nicely decorated with very comfy beds, coffee makers, fridges and A/C. A hot breakfast is included in the price and the free Wi-Fi actually works which is more than a lot of San Jose Hotels can claim. The staff is very helpful and most speak excellent English. Everything is accessible by ramps, unlike most hotels here which have steps everywhere. Highly recommended!

"Conveniently close to SJO airport"
We only stayed here for one night before we drove off to other areas of Costa Rica. The hotel was a little difficult to find as we were driving there ourselves. That said, everything is difficult to find in Costa Rica since they have no addresses. The room was clean and the bathroom was huge! The grounds of the hotel are lovely and gated, so parking is secure. The breakfast was good, and included in the room rate which is always nice. WiFi did not work in the room, and was a weak signal even in the lobby. Overall, I would recommend this hotel for a traveler on their first or last night in Costa Rica. If you are driving here yourself from the car rental pick up zone, be sure to bring very clear directions or a GPS map.

Heavy security which made me feel very safe but a little like i was in a pleasant compound, isolated from the outside. Did not feel like I wanted to leave the property for safety concerns. Great steak house on property with excellent service and a great steak, priced about the same as a Keg in Canada or US.
