I try this one because of it is located near the airport. Clean rooms, nice people and service. The price is a little high for a B&B type hotel. There is a couple of restaurants near by. Don't expect to see a fancy restaurant inside. I'll book this hotel again next time I visit San Jose.

My husband and I stayed here the night before our early morning flight. The staff was very friendly and great customer service. FYI...aside from a casino, a Rosti Pollo, and Denny's, there is nowhere to go within walking distance. So you need a car or taxi if you plan to do any sight seeing.

Short business stay, good hotel overall, no room service due to size, but very comfortable, right across the airport, only drawback is you need a cab to go find a local place to eat and need one to get back obviously, so you have to hire one to either drop you off and come back for you, or ask them...

After two weeks of traveling all over Costa Rica, we stayed here the night before our early morning flight. The staff were incredibly friendly and helped explain how the early morning shuttle (runs every 15 minutes or so) ran, and how the departure tax worked. To make this even easier, and for a small fee, they will coordinate the Costa... More

If you get in very late or leave early this is a great option. Hotel is a typical Hampton Motel with decent breakfast and good Internet connection. No restaurant but there is a Denny's and Rostipollo (rotisserie chicken) franchises across the parking lot. However if you use this hotel as your base for meetings in San Jose, travel times into...
