“Good budget hotel for the person who only wants a base...”
Reviewed 14 February 2014

Accepts credit cards. Room with private bathroom costs $25. Hot water. Very clean. Optional breakfast costs $5. Owned-managed by a friendly, helpful American woman who can give you excellent advice. This is a budget hotel--not a place to spend all day in the room. Bed was comfortable, and fans are available if requested. Free wifi. Good location close to decent restaurants and internet cafe. Walking distance to bus station. If you ask politely, you can store a drink in the fridge. Fresh towels every day. Good common areas for relaxing...

Accommodation is pretty basic for the shared bath room options. Just a small room with a bunk bed which was a little hot so maybe ask if they have a fan? Best was Patricia the ex-pat owner with her amazing knowledge and tips that helps choose the right river rafting and other tour and transport options. Downstairs she lives with her family that gives a homely touch for long term travellers including the chance to pat the family dogs.

I initially though we had a great find at this cheap spot. The owners were friendly and all... but I was eaten alive during the night. My husband woke up because I was scratching so much. There were bed bugs here. I was itching the rest of my trip in Costa rica, praying I wasn't transporting bed bugs to the other hotels I visited.
Again... this place was cheap and had warm water- but I would pay any price more than $20 to not have bed bug bites all over me (and perhaps mosquitos too, the tops of this inside rooms are open to the hallways)
Drive the 5 minutes out of town to Turrialtico lodge and you will be forever thankful.
oh, and they could splurge and replace their scrabble board - its missing tons of letters!

Room Tip: Don't pick one infested with bed bugs! Good luck with that

The manager and his wife are adorable, really helpful. They gave us really good advice concerning the rafting agency and the surroundings of the hotel.
The hotel is clean but a bit noisy. The wifi is powerfull enough to skype and the laundry service is good. It's a good value for money

This hotel is clean and very fun. It has a wonderful atmosphere for a group of friends. The couple who runs the hotel speaks great English, and is very willing to help you with travel plans if necessary. The rooms are spacious and very great for the price! I would definitely come back.

I enjoyed staying at the Hotel Interamericano in Turrialba. The property once was a railroad station hotel, so, although it is not new, it has a convenient location from which to explore Turrialba.

Turrialba is a good base for whitewater rafting but the area is also good for birders and also plant lovers or students of tropical agriculture. The world-famous research center CATIE is located in Turrialba. CATIE is a short bus ride away from town and has an interesting botanic garden ($10).

Turrialba is a little less touristy than a lot of places in Costa Rica, and that's a good thing.

The owners have wonderful, friendly dogs and two nice small children. They are busy but friendly. The kids and dogs are not allowed upstairs where the rooms are.

I enjoyed staying in a room near the porch. I would recommend a room with a window for ventilation.

One note - the bus station is a few blocks uphill from the hotel, so it is easy coming into town, but you may want to catch a cab going out if you have a lot of luggage or children.

Unfortunately, there isn't really a cooking area, so I bought some whole-grain bread at a health-food store nearby....and also ate fried chicken, which is ubiquitous in Costa Rica.

Room Tip: Get a room with a window for ventilation. Shared porch is a good spot in the early morning for urba...

I enjoyed my one night here. I had a room with a shared bath, which was small but clean. Not too much street noise, and staff was helpful. Simple, clean, safe place within walking distance to everything in Turrialba. Greenmarket happens on train tracks in front of hotel on Fridays and Saturdays. GREAT way to get affordable produce and to try some queso de Turrialba.

Room Tip: Some don't have windows. The first one they gave me didn't, and because it wasn't full i...
