We stayed in a small, but quiet and comfortable room. Showers were good, staff was prepared and helped us booking canopy tour for the next day. Breakfast was very good with options for different tastes.

place is nicer than average, clean and comfortable. It was probably one of the more comfortable beds we slept on (we slept on some bad ones in Fortuna). I would rate it higher but we felt like owners were dishonest about price. They did not honor the hotels.com price advertised and after making reservations and being dropped off by cab,...

I must say we checked physically about 5 hotels in this area and nothing really fit (too expensive without justification or good price but not such a good room). Then luckily after this long search we got accidently to marr inn! A classic and simple room, clean, hot water, good price, what else could I ask for after such a...

Simple but comfartable and clean rooms close to the 'centre' where you can find plenty of good restaurants. Very friendly guy at the reception who helps you out to find some good tours. Breakfast is good too with multiple options. Highly recommended to explore Monteverde and surroundings.

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very happy with this place. The service is excellent, on check in you are taken through a custom made map that shows the locations of all the attractions and the times you can be picked up for them. Breakfast is delicious, especially the banana pancakes, although very early (6.30 - 8am) so...

We stayed at the Mar Inn Apr 2-5, 2015. The hotel is in a good location, a 5 minute walk into town. The rooms were pleasant and very clean. The price is affordable and well worth it. Breakfast was included which was a great bonus. The service was excellent, Anthony was very helpful in booking our tours and answering any...

We just stayed there last week, the rooms are simple and clean, the price is right, with breakfast included. Very good service from Anthony, friendly atmosphere. Easy access to town. Note, if you plan on going to Monteverde, rent an SUV for crossing the mountain paths. The road are dirt and rocks, not paved, max 20 to 30 km/h, but...

Comfortable rooms. The breakfast was very good, best rice and beans I had in Costa Rica. Went to the local cloud forest tour (St. Elena not Montverde) and bought tour. I recommend the guided tours, both were great.

Great base for exploring Monteverde and Santa Elena. The manager was very friendly and helpful, setting up several excursions for us. The rooms were pleasant and clean, although walls were a bit thin, so was a bit noisier than in other places we stayed. The location was good for Santa Elena, although it is up quite a hill, so walking...
