“San Lorenzo Inn ~ muy perfecto!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 March 2011

We just returned from our trip to Costa Rica and fell in love with the country and the San Lorenzo Inn.
The service was perfect! The owner, Minor, took care of us for the entire trip. He made sure that we were comfortable with our room, served us an authentic Tico breakfast every morning and took care of all of our transportation and sight-seeing needs. He went out of his way to take us to places that we wanted to go - even if it meant a 4 hour drive one way for him.
The rooms were spotless. However, the water pressure was a little low in the shower - the only negative in a completely positive experience.
This is a small inn in a nice community. The locals are all friendly and you will fall in love with the area as much as we did.

10-15 minutes from Airport. Perfect hub for a travel break in between San Jose/Heredia/Alajuela and anywhere else in the country. Offers transportation. Extremely friendly work staff. Quiet beautiful local neighborhood in the central vally with view of both mountain ranges. Great location, spotless clean, excellent tico breakfast included.

Spent 2 nights. Compact room, but spotlessly clean. TV with US channels, wi fi.
Excellent Tico breakfast included. In nice neighborhood, but hard to find.( No street addresses in CR.) Hospitality by owner and staff excellent. Owner on premises.

This is a charming and authentic experience. The owner is gracious and friendly. He went out of his way to make our experinece comfortable. He pampered us with special meals and went out of his way to meet all of our needs, ex. ordered a car rental for us arranged for transporation to the airport etc. A delightful man and a superior experience!

* Describe the service you experienced: superb; the owner, Minor Herrera Murillo, went out of his way to do everything he could for us

* Tell us how you liked the room: room was small; minimal amenities; extremely neat and clean after maid service each day; water pressure and temperature mediocre

* Talk about the location & amenities: location not too far from airport - but unless you're familiar with the streets in the area, it's really difficult to navigate in a rental vehicle; amenties of the inn are minimal

* Say what you liked best & least - Best: owner service, clean rooms, food ("comida tipica", standard Costa Rican fare); Worst: nothing terribly bad; minor annoyances (see above)
