“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

The front desk staff at the hotel is friendly, helpful and accommodating. They helped us call our rental car company to arrange a shuttle. It is nice to have warm friendly people to help you when you first get to a country. We took a cab here from the airport as it was late in the day to pick up a rental car. I liked all the landscaping and greenery. The kids had room to roam outdoors a bit after traveling all day. The pool was nice but cold. We were not comfortable walking on the road to go out to dinner. It is not far, but there's a lot of traffic and no good place to walk. We should have just eaten at the steakhouse but we were trying to watch our budget. It looks very popular with the affluent locals. The breakfast was very good and I love having a coffee pot in the room as I am an early riser and like my coffee first thing.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

I stayed here with a friend for the first and last nights of our ten day horse riding adventure in Costa Rica. LOVED IT. The property is well kept, the rooms clean and comfortable, the front desk staff helpful and accommodating. While wi-fi did not work in our room, it did work in the adjoining restaurant, on the breakfast patio, and, our favorite spot, an outdoor living area with comfortable couches. We enjoyed a fresh breakfast served buffet style with coffee, juice, tropical fruits, breads, homemade jams, eggs, sausage, pancakes, and, of course, gallo pinto, the Costa Rican beans and rice dish served at almost every meal. The adjoining steak restaurant is wonderful. We had dinner here both nights we stayed, and lunch on our last day. The service was great, and the food even better. There is a wide variety of dishes to choose from. The steak is outstanding.

We reserved the room right on the spot and the manager was able to provide us with a great deal though Hotels.com had a $10 higher price.
Good location - 10 min to the airport driving.
Very accommodating service: attentive front desk who RSVP'ed the taxis for us, prepared 2 bags of breakfast to go even though we were living at 6am - 30 min before an official breakfast was served.
Our friends went to have a steak and from what I heard they really enjoyed the Steak and ceviche. I tried Tres Leches cake and Maracuya mousse - both are delicious.
Good rooms - vert spacious, beds are a bit hard but still comfy. Clean and nice.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

our tour company booked us there for the first night of a one-week fly and drive package in CR.
We were greeted by a english speaking person and were showed our room. I think we were the only customers on the property that night. The room was very nicely appointed, hardwood floors and a very spacious shower in the bathroom. It didnt feel like a hotel room, just like staying at a ranch on the range! We attempted having dinner there but their steakhouse closed at 5pm? We used the bar and ordered ceviche and a chicken sandwich. The food was not good and i would recommend to anyone to walk 1/2 mile to the restaurant beside mcdonalds or drive somewhere else.
There was a pool, pool table and a tennis court to use but did not. They looked to be well upkept.
Overall ok, I would not stay there for more than two nights at the most.

After struggling through the confusing streets of greater San Jose, I can always depend that I'll be in a lovely, comfortable place whenever I arrive at the El Rodeo Inn. Once you enter their gates you are in a different world of tranquility, compared to the Belen Highway, and energetically enforced security. The rooms are clean and well decorated, and the staff is consistently well trained and friendly. Highly recommend.

This hotel is the ideal spot when just arriving in San José, Costa Rica or for your last night before catching an early flight. Only 10 min from airport. Spacious clean rooms. Good steakhouse next door.

I stayed there for four days with a friend while I was in San Jose for a conference. The hotel is reasonably priced and close enough to the airport. So we chose it over the conference hotel. The rooms were big, clean and nice. The biggest plus point is the restaurant of the hotel, which serves really good steak.
