Should you find yourself in the incredibly picturesque village of Tilarán, this is the hotel to choose for a weary traveler, especially for those seeking refuge from the heat of Guanacaste or the winds of Arenal. Impeccably clean, exceptionally professional and attentive front desk staff, and an attached wonderful dining facility. Walking distance to everything in town, and outstanding free Wi-Fi service. IF access to cable TV is a requirement, Hotel Guadalupe does not disappoint. A great bargain for what is offered. And functioning air conditioning is a true luxury. Do NOT expect hot running water at the bathroom faucets; it is simply a lesson in cultural adjustment. Nor can a traveler expect to be greeted in English; without Spanish skills the traveler will need to resort to pointing, and pen & paper negotiations over price. Nonetheless, the menu at the restaurant facility is translated into very good English which allows the use of the index finger to point at the desired meal. The kitchen is open to suggestions for changes for the diet conscious, whether it be low-sodium, a particular dish, or of a diabetic nature. One further cultural note for at least the North American traveler: expect an exceptionally FIRM mattress, and I mean "ROCK-solid"; there are no pillow-top mattresses. Nonetheless, this IS the place to stay while in Tilarán! A swimming pool will be fully functional within several months of this review. MOREOVER, make certain that you've called ahead for reservations; this facility does get full even mid-week.

Room tip: Avoid rooms with windows fronting the main street as there is a large amount of traffic noise.

Nice hotel located downtown Tilarán.
The rooms are clean and cozy. They are not really fancy, but you can definitely rest there. The price is also appropriate.
The breakfast they offer is good.
We have stayed there 2 times already.

These rooms are clean, comfy, and new. There is only one other hotel in town (Hotel Mary) with comparable quality, but Guadalupe is far and away the nicest place to sleep in Tilaran proper. The attached diner is nice and serves good food, but I suggest you walk down the street to Moya's Place for a very nice dinner if you can. Compared to hotels of similar quality in more touristy towns, Guadalupe is a great price.

Make sure to call well in advance as they are almost always full, even low-season weeknights!

Room tip: Try to get one in the newer building, and make sure you ask for a/c since they do not charge extra for it.

Stayed here several times for work. Two blocks from Tilarán's center park. Always clean, quiet. Rooms small, but bearable and have cable TV, A/C, windows!

Bathroom is a bit small, but livable. Shower with hot water.

Nothing luxurious, very basic, but everything taken care of in a professional systematic way. . There´s free parking and free WiFi, just ask for the password at check in.

Staff is always small town friendly, yet very efficient.

The hotel is always filled with travelling salesmen or workers in temporary assignments.

No insects or foul odors you find in other hotels of this kind. Temperatures are way lower than in Cañas, which make for a comfy sleep.

I m a return customer and highly recommend it for an overnight stay or a work stay.

Hotel is a Costa Rican family owner buisiness. Rooms are clean and have a TV with cable, hot water and a fan. A/C is not required in Tilaran. Excellent town to spend time integrating into CR society, totally safe and the breeze every day is unique to any other town I have visited. $30/day for a queen and a double, add $3/person for breakfast. The pool will be complete by June 2012 and it has a good restraunt many locals eat at. Ask for towel and soap at the front desk, ice and drinks available also. Great little Pizzaria up the hill behind the church, many restraunts and bars closeby.
