This Best Western excels in taking care of their guests. The hotel staff is friendly, efficient, and always ready to help one get settled in. The hotel is clean, as are the rooms. The courtyard swimming pool, and Jacuzzi are well taken care. The landscaping is appealing. They do a nice job here. Bring cab money.

Great location for business and fun. Just outside of the city, 15 min from the international airport and halfway to the major business centers and free-zones where a great deal of American Fortune 100 and Fortune 500 companies have settled their Corporate Headquarters for the regional clients. It is also close to major tourist attractions such as museums, volcanos and... More

There are many much better options for the price in the area. The staff was nice, the room was so dated: it reminded me of random hotel room by the highway in middle America. There were a few positive aspects though; the pool area is nice, the room was quiet and the bed wasn't bad, the wifi was also good... More

The hotel picked us up at eleven p.m. when we arrivedat the Airport so San Jose, what good service. We were checked in fast, and we had 2 adjoining rooms, as we are a family of 6 on holiday together. Rooms were spotless, view of the huge swimming pool. Although the weather was cool in the morning, the children had... More

We spent one night 3 different times during out 10 days in Costa Rica and were pleased with each visit. The hotel staff was helpful, there is a National/Alamo Rent a Car location on property so you save the airport fee, and in addition to the 2 hotel restaurants (yes one is a Denny's), you can walk next door for...

As of 7-23-14, reservations for Garden Court Express downtown in San Jose are actually at Best Western Irazu.

This was a real disappointing start to our vacation. The lobby was nice and friendly staff. But the rooms were terrible. Beds were sooo uncomfortable. Best thing was jacuzzi. Glad we were only there one night. We were stopping there for a night before we traveled to the Montezuma area for the week. I spent about $130 on a night... More

The staff is unhelpful--all they seem to want to do is to steer you to their casino. The Costa Rican departure tax is US$29 but this hotel wants to charge you $33 to pay the tax--other hotels do not add a surcharge. Their restaurant is Denny's--why would anyone want to eat in a Denny's in Costa Rica. The included breakfast... More

We stayed here for a night before our trip to the Arenal area on June 29th. This is a no frills kind of place, great for a ngiht. Asked for a room overlooking the pool as previous travelers suggested and it was great. We were too tired to try out the pool but it was fairly large pool. The staff... More

This is a decent place to hang your hat for one night either before an early morning flight or after arriving in San Jose late in the day. We arrived late afternoon and needed a safe, comfortable place to sleep before heading out at 6:00 the next morning to Tortuguero. Our room looked out over the pool area and I... More
