Clean, convenient place to stay if you have an early flight to catch the next day. They offer free shuttles to and from the airport even early in the morning and its 5 minutes away from the airport. Very friendly people too.

From the moment we were picked up to come to Melrost, we felt welcome and well taken care of. The owners and staff were very kind and helpful. The property is beautiful and fairly quiet despite being only a few minutes from the airport. Breakfast on the veranda was a special treat as the flowers nearby were visited by hummingbirds... More

I took a late night flight to Costa Rica and this hotel was perfect due to the distance. The hotel is basic and in an odd location but the service is great. The front desk person was very informative. The breakfast was very basic, and bland. I would recommend this place for a late night flight.

I booked a room at this bed and breakfast for one night prior to an early departure from the SJO airport. I notified the owner that I would be coming in a little late. He stated that we could call from the airport (we were being dropped off here by a shuttle) and they would send their courtesy van to... More

We stayed at the Hotel Melrost, about 5 or 6 minutes from the international airport. Very well located, being next to a mall with lots of choices to eat and buy last-minute things. All the staff were very attentive, especially Katia and Rolando. Rolando lived in Brazil for a while and therefore understands and speaks Portuguese well. They gave us... More

Once again we checked into the Melrost for another night. Surprise, as other friends were already there. We consider this small Tico hotel to be another member of the family! As usual we were picked up at the airport and after a very short ride we were checking in with laughter and smiles. This is not your high dollar, busy... More

When I arrived at the airport, I was greeted by the shuttle driver from the hotel, holding a sign with my name. Couldn't be easier, and well appreciated, since you get bombarded upon arrival by taxi drivers, etc. The hotel is well situated- an easy walk to buses, a mall, and the center of town. The rooms are clean, but... More

Stayed here the last night of our trip, before heading back. Melrost is quite a ride from the airport, but they do offer a free shuttle service to the airport (even at six in the morning). Staff very friendly and provided us with a to go breakfast. Rooms were OK, cleanliness average.
