Room was clean and comfortable. Nice pool although small. Few restaurants nearby. We stayed two times,each before and after a flight and the free shuttle was much appreciated. Staff was friendly. We enjoyed our stay

It's location is convenient if you have an early morning flight the next day. Other than that there's no reason to stay at a bland hotel like this. Their walk in rates are high but they will allow you to use their computers to look online, book a cheaper rate and then come back to the front desk to check... More

We recently stayed one night at this Courtyard before flying out of SJO in the morning. The hotel itself seems fairly new and everything is clean and well-kept. There are a few restaurants steps from the hotel as well as a Wal-Mart. The free parking behind the hotel is also a bonus What drags this review down is the hotel... More

Because our flight home was so early in the morning, we decided to stay near the airport for our last night in Costa Rica. We were very happy with this hotel. The lobby was clean, modern, and had all the ammenities a traveler needs. The reception had snacks and basic ammenities for purchase, and the lobby had a business center... More

I have stayed here a few times now before flying out of SJO or upon late arrival into San Jose and it is a great new hotel. There is regular shuttle service to and from the airport which is very convenient. My room rate has always included an awesome breakfast with nice fresh fruit, baked goods and cereals, yogurt, cheese,... More

This hotel was perfect, we have stayed here twice before and the employees are more than helpful. Shuttle service on a regular basis, so close to airport that makes that early morning flight that much more enjoyable. The taco place across the way was really good, we had their street tacos and were just the right size and not overly... More

I usually stay at the Holiday Inn Express down the street (which is a great place to stay, with excellent cust service) but booked here due to it being about $25 cheaper. I was very impressed. The hotel is a bit nicer than HIE, and just as convenient to get to and from the airport.

Nice shuttle service from SJO. A couple of decent restaurants within walking distance, next door to Walmart. Property is new and very nice. Buying the tax departure stamp here is a good idea even though they change a fee.

There's no service when we were there, the room was very clean as all the marriotts are, but the towels were rough (more like the towels i'd use for my bathroom floor cause so worn out). There's a small mall across the hotel and the food in 2nd floor cafe was very good. There's not much going on around there... More

We booked this hotel because we had an early flight out of San Jose and managed to get a great deal on Orbitz, a suite for $85. The hotel is completely geared towards the airport. Check in is quick and efficient; we received our departure tax form right away at the counter and didn't have to wait in line at... More
