What happened to Adventure Inn on TripAdvisor?

Adventure Inn has a fantastic location, ideally situated about half way between the international SJO airport and central San Jose. Our guests have close access to both, yet are far enough away for none of the negative aspects. Our guests generally enjoy and appreciate returning to the cleaner, safer, less polluted and quieter Adventure Inn neighborhood after a day in central San Jose, and a great night’s sleep close to the airport but not at the end of a runway.

For those wondering why Adventure Inn is no longer listed on TripAdvisor as # 2 of eighty-seven hotels in San Jose, Costa Rica (with over 1300 mostly kind reviews), it is because we have been moved to # 1 of ten hotels in San Antonio de Belen. You can still search for ‘Adventure Inn’ if you know about us already.

TripAdvisor has a strict, yet sometimes misleading policy of placing some hotels where they are politically located rather than as tourists perceive and use the area. Readers are generally unfamiliar with specific locations, that’s why they are on TripAdvisor, and at times they are presented with an inaccurate¬† picture.

Three provinces come together where Adventure Inn is located. Adventure Inn and San Antonio de Belen happen to be in the middle province of Heredia. The City of San Jose is in the province of San Jose, yet Adventure Inn is only 5.6 miles from the city epicenter. The international SJO airport is in the province of Alejuela, yet Adventure Inn is only six miles from the airport. It is all just one city occupying about 1% of Costa Rica’s land. Because Adventure Inn is not in either the province of San Jose nor the province of Alejuela, we are not listed under San Jose nor the airport, yet we are ideally located for both. It is far easier to get to central San Jose and the airport from Adventure Inn than say anywhere in Escazu.

Our tourist location is so good that huge hotels like the Marriott San Jose, the Wyndham San Jose Herradura, the Cariari Doubletree by Hilton San Jose and the Country Inn and Suites San Jose by Carlson are also located here.

None of us anticipate being found much more on TripAdvisor by people looking for a hotel in the San Jose area, or the international SJO airport. Fortunately however, because of our high ranking, Adventure Inn often shows up as a secondary selection if you click on another top-ranking San Antonio de Belen hotel.

Because of the great influenceTripAdvisor has on tourism, we hope that one day soon TripAdvisor will realize they have a responsibility to their readers and hotels by allowing competing hotels to compete against one another, regardless of the political boundaries. All Adventure Inn asks is to be given reasonable exposure so we can compete.

Little value-priced Adventure Inn was recently ranked in 2014 by TripAdvisor as the # 13 hotel in Costa Rica, and the # 17 hotel out of over 2000 hotels in Central America. We’re there if you stumble upon us!
