This is the most enchanting hotel and the price is so reasonable. They are always there to help in any way.. They are attentive in getting me to the airport, back and forth. Also they can plan travel tours thru out Costa Rica. The hotel has little balconys to sit on for their breakfast servings. The hotel is within walking... More

Well, the A/c had a problem so the gal got a key to the room next door, went in borrowed that A/c clicker to turn on mine. Mind you those tenants were not there at the time. The room was small and dirty. The bathroom especially dirty, the sink was dirty and faucet did not turn off completely so it... More

Literally a stones throw away from the airport however even for one night I regretted staying here. The room resembled a depressing prison, small, dirty and smelly. I had to ask for a change of sheets as the pillow and sheets smelled badly. Even the "fresh" sheets still had some smell. It was the first time on my travels I... More

We stayed here for one night on the way out of CR and I am all for roughing it- camping, staying inexpensively, etc....however, this felt very dirty to me. The walls looked filthy, I wore my flip-flops the whole time (and I love being barefoot) and I was really worried to sleep on the very old mattress even after I... More

As the title states this place is comdfortable, quaint, near the airport, clean, very friendly staff, decent small breakfast, and they provide a shuttle included in the price of the room to or from the airport. I like staying here if I arrive late at night, have a breakfast and go about my business the next day.

Great for staying one night. We stayed here before going to the airport. Clean and basic. Free breakfast. Free wi fi. No AC but had fans. It's low season so there's not many people. The only downside is you can hear noise from outside the room or from the street. When we stayed the noise started at around 6am but... More

We weren't around long enough for breakfast, but we had quick, accurate and honest service. We spent our last night in CR here and even after arriving late into the evening, still found a wonderful place to walk safely, eat dinner and walk back to kick back and sleep until our flight.

We stayed here on our first night when we landed at midnight. Then again when we departed CR. The first night was booked through agoda.com. We made our second reservation through the front desk. We said we would be leaving well before breakfast and could we get a reduced price. We were given a nice double bed room for $50.... More

It felt like a prison cell. The walls were a strange patchwork of dreary colors. It didn't feel clean inside, and the cost was comparable nice hotels in the area. We cancelled the last two nights and changed to a hotel that was also near to the airport. The staff were very nice, so giving a bad review was hard... More

This place is tops! Staff were super friendly and extremely accommodating. I stayed the evening with my two pooches. I will recommend this beautiful place to everyone! Would have been nice to stay longer. Lovely breakfast and little garden and park across the road for the dogs to go. Thank you to the wonderful staff of Melrost! Will definitely be... More
