Not a bad place to stay if you're only staying a night or two as we did at the beginning and end of your stay in Costa Rica. Rooms were dated, but spacious and clean (well, the first room we had was anyway! - the second had a really thick layer of dust and lots of cobwebs around the curtain tracks, but I guess it's a little hard to keep on top of things in a dusty city?). Was first a little put off by the iron gate across the doorway, but at night realised this was for our safety which was a good thing. Breakfast was buffet style and filling. Internet access was really slow and the lighting in the internet area at night is terrible - make sure you use during the day! Staff were nice enough.
