We arrived in Liberia late and had arranged with the hotel for a pick up. The driver was right on time. The room was basic and the grounds were well kept. Breakfast was good, helpful staff. Good value

I had a one night stay in this hotel before I took my early morning flight. I can only say that it is an average hotel. My room was tucked in the back corner near the cleaning station. There was an old mattress in the hallway...could have been the mattress from my room but it was still unsightly. My bed...

This was a pretty rough place!! I would definitely try NOT to stay here.. The Good: 1. Easy to find. 2. Friendly reception. The bad: 1. There was no decorations on any of walls of our rooms. 2. The furniture was from the 1970s. 3. We had to ask for towels as there were none in the room when we...

I just don't understand complaining about decor (which I thought was just fine) or bugs in a tropical country. I visited Costa Rica for nearly three weeks and stayed in 6 different hotels and one private apartment, ranging from $38-$150 per night. I found Las Espuelas ranked as my 2nd favorite during my trip. Everything was very clean and little...

Very hard to find. With road construction it's easy to miss the sign. Supposed to be a Best Western don't look for that sign. It's simply Las Espuelas. Food was good. Room was clean but plain. The included breakfast was local Tico and very good. For $68. A night it's a good deal. Pool was refreshing and clean. Had to...

We used Las Espuelas Hotel as a one night stay before we truly started our Costa Rica holiday. We arrived too late in the afternoon to drive up to Arenal, so just stayed one night to get going the next morning. It was a Best Western when we booked, but wasn't by time we traveled. That told me one thing,...

Apparently they are no longer affiliated with the Best Western chain which is what we thought we booked. Overall it was just average, the room we had was tired, well used. Quite a few bugs around as well as a lizard, built in pest control? No hot water, Luke warm, and almost no water pressure. Beds were fine and ac...

Our San Jose flight was cancelled because of volcanic dust, so we rebooked from Liberia and found this hotel via Tripadvisor. A long distance bus transfer was more than willing to drop us at the door, as the hotel is on the main road. It was all that others claimed. A very nice place to hangout for an afternoon and...

I enjoyed my stay at Best Western Las Espuelas. It was a basic level hotel without a lot of frills. It was quiet and safe. American and other foreign families were there visiting. Breakfast was adequate and restaurant staff were very pleasant and helpful. The coffee was not the best but it was fine. Since Costa Rica is very hot,...
