Travelers seeking inexpensive accommodations with a pool and room accoutrements such as coffeemakers and refrigerator will enjoy this small inn set behind one of San José's most popular restaurants. The smallest rooms with double beds are a bit crowded; more desirable suites are enlarged with balconies and seating areas. Beds covered in crisp white sheets are comfortable, and the bathrooms are kept immaculately clean. For a little more, you can spread out in the Jacaranda Hacienda suite with a private entrance, kitchenette, and bathtub built for two, or go all the way and book the authentic Tarascan Cottage with brick walls, woven wood roof, antique glass pitcher, hurricane lamps, and embroidered pillows all imported from Michoacán. A spiral staircase leads to the second-floor bedroom beneath a palapa, and the private patio faces the hotel's gardens.
