Stay in San Jose or Alajuela before heading to Montezuma?

Hello! It looks like we'll be spending the night near the airport before heading to Montezuma and probably before our flight on the way back too. Should we stay in San Jose or Alajuela? I've heard that the direct bus to Montezuma stops in Alajuela outside of the airport, but I've also heard it sometimes does not stop. Does anyone know for sure? Does the bus sometimes fill up in San Jose, potentially leaving no room, even if it did stop in Alajuela? It would be nice to avoid the trip to San Jose unless we have to. Thank you in advance for any insight you can offer!

Here are a few other shuttles that you can also look at:

You are correct about the bus differences. If you have all day, then take the less expensive and regular bus, but you can't check your bags.....you have them with you all the time. Sometimes the regular buses are as comfy as the Direct Bus, but they do stop everywhere!
