Recommedation for hotel near catholic church

My friend and I will be visiting El Castillo/La Fortuna in November and we are looking for a hotel near the La Fortuna Alamo Rental Car Office for 1 night. Any recommendations? Mid Range and clean are the priorities! Thanks!!

A little confused here...why do you have to be near Alamo Rental office? Do they not deliver cars to the hotel of your choice? Perhaps look for a rental company that will drop a car off to any hotel in the area. What am I missing?

I agree. You don't need to be walking distance to the church. There are many nice hotels within a ten minute drive from that area. Every place I've stayed is clean. How do you define "mid range"?

El Castillo is quite a distance from La Fortuna town center. Distance in time, not necessarily kilometers. The road from El Castillo to the highway 142 (?) is gravel and slow going..

Linda Vista on El Castillo road is nice..... pretty much in El Castillo

Silencio del Campo in La Fortuna is nice

We are returning the car and only need a place within walking distance of the office for one night. They may offer us a ride to the hotel but just in case they don't we need to be close.

Unless you want to spend less than $80/ night, I would not recommend any place within walking distance. Most of the lodging in town seems to be hostels.

We did the same thing a few years ago. Stayed at Hotel San Bosco. The best breakfast I've ever had in Costa Rica. They are also the sister hotel to the Volcano Lodge and let us use the hot springs there for free.

Thanks everyone for the recommendations, tips, etc. I have another question I could use some help with:

Has anyone taken the directo bus from la Fortuna to Montezuma on the Nicoya Peninsula? Did you go through San Jose and was that relatively straight forward as far as changing stations, buses, timing of the ferry, etc. It doesn't seem that difficult as long as there is not alot of changing stations, the times align with the ferry schedule and all that. Any suggestions would be appreciated!!
