Good Base for Exploring San Jose

The Morazan gets a bad rap, undeservedly so, in many reviews. It's not plush, and it does cater to... See full review

Good location and cheap but VERY rundown

Great location in the middle of downtown. Short walk to parks and the National Theater. But the hotel is very very run down and outdated. Bed wasn't good, bathroom was bad and a lot of street noise. But for $50/night downtown you can't expect more. One plus is they do not charge a fee for bringing a guest to your room

Workers in Lobby

Hotel rooms were fine - clean and tidy. Continuous stream of 'lady workers' in lobby, elevator, and in casino. Hotel concierge was helpful in arranging tours.

Several restaurants within short distance. Second-floor restarurant in hotel was really a bar, serving food on the side. Free hotel breakfast buffet was very good.

You get what you paid for!

Lets just say if you are looking for somewhere to sleep for the night, this is you place. If you're looking for anything else, you probably should be looking somewhere else.

It's just a short walk to the famed Key Largo Bar and Hotel Del Rey in San Jose, Costa Rica, the two premier locations for the single adult traveler to find gorgeous available ladies

adequate

The room was cleaned everyday i was given fresh linen daily. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is downtown san Jose . Lots of shopping, small places to eat and buses and inexpensive taxis galore to take you anywhere you wanna go. I would recommend this hotel to a friend. The hotel is also a casino.

My Gawd, the street noise!

Folks, I have visited the hotel previously, and thought the location and convenience were excellent. My room (an el cheapo) was tiny (ok, makes sense) but was a 'balcony' room (read that as 'stay away'). What makes it a balcony is that they cut the room in half, put in a door and a window, and leave you this outer porch thing that overlooks one of the noisiest streets in the dratted city, Avenida 1. Buses start at 5AM. You cannot sleep in these rooms no matter what. Make sure your room does not face South! Also, the del rey is right around the corner, so you are guaranteed party noise on Friday and Saturday. The sound travels down Avenida 1 and shakes the rooms. Mine happened to be the closest to the DelRey, so maybe I had it the worst. The hotel is good, but stay off the southern rooms.
