My flight was cancelled and I was taken by shuttle to the Hampton in San Jose from 6:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The staff were all friendly and supportive, the breakfast was delicious (especially the waffles!), and the all-day hot beverages were especially appreciated. The shuttle driver was friendly and personable, as was the concierge, who conversed with me in... More

We have stayed here several times. I love the beds and the Airport is right across the street. indoor pool. Good breakfast and airport shuttle. There is a Casino and a Dennys next door as well. This is the same style and type of our in the United States.

In May I planned a trip to Costa Rica, for my wife and myself, which we would enjoy in August. As part of that trip I booked a room for one night at the Hampton Hotel near the airport in San Jose, Costa Rica. I also needed a rental car for 11 days. Knowing Hampton to a be a big... More

Overall service and quality of the CostaRcicans staff at the Hampton is excellent, when compared to same hotel at mainland. The selection of food served at Hampton-San Jose at breakfast is fresh and better quality when compared to same Hampton Inns I have stayed at mainland. Certainly, Costa Ricans know how to treat tourists!

We came and verified with them if they could accommodate a family of 5, in one room. Where the Marriott wanted us to get 2 rooms the manager of the holiday inn express was happy to set up Our room with an extra bed. Clean, friendly and very close to airport. Would stay here again!

We stayed here one night on our way out of Costa Rica. The staff is helpful, the hotel and rooms are clean and very quiet, the breakfast is good and the wifi works well. It's just what you'd expect from a Hampton Inn anywhere. The shuttle to the airport was quick and easy. Restaurant options within walking distance are limited... More

Close to the airport, centrally located between San Jose downtown, Poas Volcano and Coffee Plantations. The Courtyard Marriott cannot hold a candle to what the Hampton Inn has to offer. Excellent beds (Courtyards are terrible), free breakfast, all the complimentary coffee you want and really great staff. I have given a four start because the decor is a little dated... More

Family member had one night stay here to catch early morning flight at SJO. Much easier and much less stressful than staying in town and coping w/ morning rush hour traffic.
