We had been stranded by our transportation company and were not happy about it one bit (we'd been traveling over 24 hours!). The reception staff could not have been any nicer or more helpful in accommodating us--even without reservations!. The hotel itself was in fabulous condition and the bed felt like pure heaven. Breakfast was the perfect send-off.

Arrived late in San Jose International Airport - Hampton Inn provided perfect location for first night. Clean rooms, excellent service, reasonably prices. They arrange airport pick-up's and drop-off's; saves you the cab fare.

We stayed here for one night before our very early flight (6:30 a.m.) back to Canada> The pool area was nice as was the fitness center. We dropped our car rental off the night before our flight and took the free and very convenient shuttle to the airport the next morning. Because we had to leave at 3:30, the hotel... More

If you're looking for an "American" quality hotel experience close to the San Jose Airport, I recommend the Hampton Inn by Hilton nearby. The staff speaks perfect English. Our room and bathroom were immaculate. The A/C worked great without that moldy-mildewy odor you come to expect in Central America. Our sheets, blankets and towels were clean and crisp. The TV...
