I stayed here for my third time last April and will return in October. The continental free breakfast is great and one can order eggs etc. for very cheap. The "resident" cab driver will take you anywhere and if you don't mind hills, the promanade is a 5 minute walk. I have been to Costa Rica several times and The...

I have been to the Dunn twice before and the minor problem this time was that I was there Semana Santa - Saints Week - and the hotel was quite desolate. I do like peace and quiet but there were times when I was the only one in the very nice restaurant. This does not take anything away from how...

Meh. There was nothing wrong with our stay at the Dunn Inn - the staff was polite and helpful, the amenities in the room worked as expected, the location is fine. But it was the worst value of anywhere we stayed. The priciest place we stayed in, but a tiny room on an inside corridor (so no outside windows, which...

I have stayed at the Dunn Inn 4 times on my last two trips to Costa Rica last year (2013). Each time I have stayed there the service has been excellent. I have been both picked up and dropped off at San Jose International Airport by transportation provided by the hotel, and the transportation fee has been reasonable. The rooms...

This trip I spent 3 days at the dentist. The Dunn inn made special meals for me.I could only have soft food. The food was very good. It was a nice touch. They went out of their way to make me comfortable. If you are going to the dentist on your trip this is a good place the dentist office...

We stayed in Hotel Dunn Inn for two nights and thought it was excellent. Good service, nice restaurant and bar--really friendly staff. The location was great--walking distance to downtown, but a little removed so not noisy. The rooms are really tiny, but we weren't in our room except to sleep (pretty much that is all you can do in your...

Reasonably priced, quite, perfect location. You can walk to the Central Market and many other spots. Rooms are clean and service is excellent. Food is pretty good too. Try the Azteca soup. You'll love it!

We stayed at this hotel our last night in Costa Rica...we transferred our final night from their hotel in Jaco. Hotel Dunn was clean, nice with friendly people. Service from Hotel 9 after trying to get our refund from our last night we didn't stay there has been awful. They do not respond to many email and phone requests...guess it's...
