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

Great location close to airport with shuttle service. Rooms were comfortable and the staff was professional. Breakfast was wonderful and they made accommodations for breakfast on our second stay which was our flight out of Costa Rica which was early. This was a great stay.

Wonderful place to start and end our trip to Costa Rica. The driver picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the Melrost B&B. On our departure, the same driver took us to the San Jose Airport at 4 AM so that we could catch our early morning fight back to the USA. Staff was cheerful, helpful and... More

The front desk was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were good for the price. Free wifi, breakfast and shuttle service to the airport. A convenient and good stay for accessibility to the airport with a short walk to downtown Alajuela for some shopping and food.

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.
