I stayed here overnight on my way to the coast. Everything was clean and seemingly well kept. Good WiFi coverage in the rooms for those that need it. Didn't turn on the TV, but the air conditioning in my room worked great. They were painting in the front at I left, so it seems that they care about appearance. Breakfast... More

Since we arrived late at San Jose airport we didn't want to drive far, Eskalima is well located just a few kilometers from our rental company (europcar). Simple but good hotel, friendly staff and simple but sufficient complimentary breakfast. Locked parking at the same street for your car is great. Beds are alright, aircon works fine, shower works well.

Not the best looking of hotels from the outside, but the rooms are very comfortable with good air-conditioning which is needed in this hot and humid town. The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. Try the Gallo Pinto which is a typical Costan Rican breakfast of rice, small black beans and egg. I would definitely overnight here... More

The hotel is a quick taxi ride from the airport. We arrived in late and this was one of the hotels that has a 24hr check-in. They were helpful at 1:30 am and even made sure our breakfast would be ready for us in the morning. The room was nothing fancy just needed a place to sleep until everything opened... More

We stayed here before flying out the following day. The location is great for San Jose international airport. Rooms very clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and even offered us breakfast to go when leaving at 5 in the morning. No aircon but has a ceiling fan which was at points a bit noisy. Good value

The reason we booked this hotel was its close proximity to the San Jose airport. The taxi to and from was no more then 3 mil each way. There is a park right across the street. The neighborhood markets are all around, very cool to see locals shopping and commuting in the evening. The room was in great condition. Air... More

Stayed here for one night, 15 min drive from the airport. Room is not big but still comfortable and clean. Staff was very friendly, nice Continental breakfast. The only downside i can think of is that there were no windows facing the outside - there was only one facing the hotel hall.
