Close to the airport, helpful staff, delicious breakfast! We stayed here just overnight but it was a great choice for us. The shuttle picked us up within a few minutes of walking out of the terminal. Nice, clean rooms.

Great location for catching early flights. Clean hotel with all amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast included. Even offered bagged breakfast for early departure. Excellent shuttle service to airport. Air conditioning worked and was quiet and helped to block out noisy flights or traffic. Very comfortable bed. Good lighting in all rooms.

I agree with another reviewer that this hotel does seem very dated. For an airport hotel, it's fine. However, be aware that the desk in the hotel where you can pay the airport departure tax is only open until 4 PM, so if you arrive after that the night before your flight, I highly recommend you hop on the shuttle...

Stayed at the Hampton Inn overnight, before a flight out of San Jose the next morning. The hotel served its, purpose...however the room seemed very old and dated, for the price. For what we payed, I'd expect a nicer hotel. The furniture and the bathroom seem like they haven't been updated in 20 years.

I would come back here in a heartbeat. Friendly, accommodating , prompt shuttle service to airport and clean room with English cable stations. I loved the convenience of a fridge and microwave in the room and all the comforts of home. Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I stayed here two nites on our return from Costa Rica. The rooms and public spaces were the quality we had come to expect from Hampton Inn. The one sour note was the shuttle service. It was 1/2 hour late picking us up after dinner at the all, and 10 minutes late in taking us to the... More

My husband and I only stayed here one night after arriving at the San Jose airport, but we were glad we chose this hotel. They offered a free shuttle from the airport (it's a very short ride) and service at the front desk was polite and courteous. Our room was large and comfortable. Even though we didn't have time to...

Great hotel if you need to stay close to the airport (such as the night before you depart). Clean, cushy, quiet rooms, and well appointed. Ours came with a fridge and microwave. You can purchase some snacks and ice cream in the lobby (last chance to have a Dos Pinos ice cream!). The breakfast buffet is fine, and you'll find... More

This is an large, American Hampton Inn, identical to those found across the United States, except that this one is positioned near the airport in San Jose, the major way into Costa Rica.
