We had an early morning flight and decided to stay at the Hampton and were not disappointed. Staff were very friendly and helpful right from arrival, check-in and exit tax service. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable, it was also fantastic to be able to have a warm shower again. Great buffet breakfast in the... More

Was delighted to see an effort to decorate for Halloween. It was very well done and I even got a hand decorated iced cookie in the shape of a ghost specially wrapped for the holiday. Take advantage of getting the exit tax paid at this hotel. Saves a lot of time at the airport when lines can be very long.... More

We stayed here the night before a flight. This Hampton was very much like what you would get in the US. The staff was friendly, helpful and accommodating. The beds were comfortable, not too hard, and the bedding plush. The breakfast was great, included proteins and waffles. The airport shuttle was free, and runs every 15 minutes. Definitely plan to...

The Hampton Inn near the SJO hotel was amazing! The hotel was as clean as can be with fun and colorful Halloween decorations throughout the building. The breakfast was one of the best I've had at a Hampton Inn- all the traditional continental choices plus fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, sausage links, even Costa Rican gallo pinto and tortillas! A delicious... More

We have stayed at the SJO airport Hampton Inn numerous times. We are continually impressed with how this hotel is run and the high class customer service provided. Very close proximity to the SJO airport, and a short drive west to the Pacific coast line, or up north to the Arenal volcano area make it a perfect lanching pad for... More
