Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
I have stayed here a few times. I like the location, central to many things, a market next door, restaurant and bar on premises as well as gift shop and Alamo car rental. This is my base when coming to or leaving from Costa Rica. They provide a shuttle to and from hotel for about $8 so we spend our first night and last night here.

3/5 Okay

Travelled with group
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Requested and paid for a King size bed and fridge and got 2 double beds and they siad they would put a mini fridge in and after asking at the front desk twice I gave up and just put up with the double beds and no fridge. Ridiculous smoking policy as was told to go across the street to smoke although was not even on their property obviously ignored and told the security to leave me alone and do something poroductive. Likely will not use that hotel again or recommecnd it as their staff is not very helpful at all.
