8.0.Very good.
  • 6.0.Good

    The location was very convenient, close to everything, staff were friendly and helpful, the breakfast was good, but the room was very outdated and needs work, the A.C. unit made a lot of noises and looked very old, also the furniture and toilet were very old and worn, the bed mattress was pretty thin

  • 4.0.Fair

    The lady was very nice. Despite her and I having a language barrier, she was very hospitable. She told me they offer a one-time visit to an off-site thermal hot spring. Compared to the man (whom I assumed was her husband) who spoke English but was not very welcoming. The worse part was one night, one of the receptionist (not sure who) let an unwelcomed (male) visitor into the hotel and told them where I was staying without asking me or letting me know. I found it a BIG security concern. Especially, as a lady.

    Quiet place to stay in La Fortuna

    This was a I’ve quiet place to stay in La Fortuna. I believe we were one of the only guests due to the pandemic. The value for the price is worth it. The family that runs the facility is very nice and welcoming. The breakfast is very good- fruit, juice, coffee, tea, rice, beans, and eggs. You can book tours directly on-site, although we did not use this service. There are hot springs and a pool available for free use through the hotel off-site. It’s quite a walk so easier to drive or take a taxi. The hotel is a few minutes walk from the bus stop and the supermarket. Arenal is a short drive away. AC in the room. Bed was hard and the facility is a bit old, but this is pretty standard throughout Costa Rica. Overall, a nice experience. I would stay here again.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    La Choza Inn was super clean and simple. The staff was very informative about the tours and shuttle transportation around La Fortuna. We got the double private room and it was spacious and very clean. 5/5 I recommend this place. It's also nicely tucked away from the busy touristy town of La Fortuna.

    Great breakfast and location

    Great gallo pinto breakfast, beautiful courtyard and lots of outdoor seating. Room itself was small but extras made this budget accomodation nice.

    Wonderful receptionist who was very helpful and spoke both English and Spanish. Great location a block off the main street. They give a one-time free shuttle to the free hot springs river area (an Uber there is about US$7). The only problem was on a Friday night it was quite loud until 2am due to a party next door.
