Not a good choice
Hotel was dated. Room was musty and the bathroom was weird. Door didn't close no room around sink to put anything. Would never stay here again and advise others not too.

Good3.0 / 5
Good value, very basic.
The best thing about this hotel is that the room did not have the smell of mildew or mold very common in Costa Rica. Linens smell fresh clean. For an allergic person like me, this is a very good choice. A/C, cable TV, hot water,etc. worked well.Bed & pillows are good. Free local calls are a plus.

Good3.0 / 5
I've stayed here many times in the past. It's usually very good. This time they were painting and staining outside my room. It was a very strong solvent smell that made me sick to the point of vomiting and bad headaches. it lasted the entire stay and forced me to work at a nearby coffee shop during the day.

Great deal but missing simple amenities
Overall experience was very good. Great deal for the money. The lack of simple amenities such as washclothes, more than one hand towel, hair conditioner would have earn the hotel a five.

Disappointed
Room was on third floor furthest away from lobby with no elevator. Of the three beds inthe room, only one was comfortable. The bathtub was very old and full of marks that looked like dirt but was not dirt, unsightly none the less. The front entrance has steps so you have to drag your suitcases up those. The breakfast was good, but lunch buffet was only fair.
