Great service, very clean rooms - best Holiday Inn Express in which I have ever stayed! If you need to leave for the airport before 6:30 am - they have 'to-go' boxes prepared to take with you. Stayed here several times and shuttles are timely - no long waits or unexpected delays - unless there are many others needing to... More

This hotel is fantastic. I've stayed here multiple times as I'm living in Costa Rica for a year, and this hotel has become my "hub". I love when I have the opportunity to stay here. The staff is friendly and wonderful. The hotel has a wonderful breakfast selection, and even "to-go" breakfasts if you have an early flight. There is... More

Spent one night here before early flight am. Room was spacious, bathroom clean. A/C took a while to cool down the room. Paid my departure tax here at $33, saving me time at the airport. Ate at Denny's across the road. Breakfast bag and coffee to go was available at 4am. Luggage trolleys available.

Our flight was for 6:15 am and a 3rd party had made a reservation for us, we thought at Holiday Inn Express. Not so. The reservation had been made at a different Hotel and for the previous night. We are expecting to check in and there isn't a reservation in our name. The front desk was EXTREMELY helpful and courtesy... More

Close hotel to the airport, with perfect service, wifi, just 5 minutes from airport. You can rent car here or have some trip. I stay just one night after arrival and one night before departur and it was really perfect idea.

Holiday Inn Express was a delightful little gem that I stayed at only one night, awaiting my departure back to Arizona the following morning. The front desk staff was fabulous and I was even offered a lower rate upon check-in than the internet rate I had booked. This hotel offers a "to go" breakfast beginning at 3am so that you... More

Tip: pay the airport tax at the hotel to avoid the long line when departing. Well worth the $4 extra charge. Highlights: Food: To go breakfast bags for early departures. We left to the airport by 4:30 am so that was nice. Next to Fiesta casino, Denny's and Pollo restaurants. Location: very close to the airport. Shuttle to the airport... More

We ended up staying here when another hotel we had reservations for in San Rafael, Heredia was not up to our expectations. The staff worked hard to get us checked in early. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have international calling for $2.00 a day!!!!

It is an airport hotel in every sense. 24 hour shuttle, free wifi, clean rooms, free brown bag to go breakfast, across the parking lot from Denny's, flight info monitors in lobby, luggage scale in lobby, pay departure tax ($4 fee per person) at front desk.
