On our travels to Monteverde, we stayed at the Mar Inn. Anthony was at the front desk when we arrived and he and the other staff were friendly, helpful and very nice. Tatiana helped with breakfast and was helpful at helping us with our Spanish. We enjoyed the room with leaving the windows open during the day and evening with...

Simple but cosy Inn. The windows are far from sealing, though, letting insects inside the room as well as noise from the adjacent hotel, which is big for Monte Verde standards. The staff is nice and friendly.

Not many motels were displayed during our Internet search for lodging. Once we arrived in the area , we saw many hotels. The Mar Inn is a good local B&B. The breakfast is good (choice of pancakes or eggs). Parking is a bit tight.

Mars Inn was a nice place. After a hearty welcome, the staff did everything they could to see to our comfort. We were given a room with total privacy. It was adequate and comfortable. A bit more light in the bathroom would have been good. Breakfasts offered a number of choices, all of which were well prepared. Coffee was available...

I spent 2 nights at Mar Inn. The staff is very friendly, especially Anthony the manager. The hotel is sitting on a hill about 5-min walk from the center of Santa Elena. My room was located on the ground floor, just next to the reception and the breakfast area. Furniture is basic but comfort is good. There is a small...

This B&B definitely exceeded my expectation. The room is clean and spacious. We had two queen sized beds, and the bathroom is big too. It is a 5 min walk to town. Breakfast has three choices, pancakes, eggs, rice and beans, all with a plate of fresh fruits.

Great hotel that is located on the main road in Monteverde. It is about 7 minutes from the Monteverde cloud forest reserve. The rooms are very nice and very clean with a spacious bathroom. Staff was very friendly and helped us book tours in the area. Breakfast was very good.

We arrived at the Mar Inn to be told that the door to our room was broken and if we were to stay in the room are belongings would not be secure and they could not guarantee it would be fixed that day. They thankfully had a room held for us at the hotel next door. We were disapointed because...

This isn't the type of place I usually stay but if you are on a budget this might be worth looking at. I would rather pay more and upgrade. The location has loud traffic. No views to speak of. Dingy rooms. Old beds and bedding. No chairs or dressers or closets. It was kind of clean if mildewed walls in...
