“Great one night stop over”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013 via mobile

The location is super close to the airport, staff extremely helpful, food choices are limited, but a awesome little to go breakfast if you leave before six a.m. Nice overnight stop on way to the pacific resorts.

Room is nice, new bedding. Staff is friendly. Advice: do not recommed using the hotel taxi service, rates are 40-200% more than local services. Took hotel taxi to Walmart - 3mil colonies; return trip with local taxi - 1 mil colonies; hotel taxi to dinner - 15 mil colonies; return trip with local taxi - 8700 mil colonies.

This hotel is extremely close to the airport, has a shuttle pick-up at the airport and was very clean, with spacious rooms. Perfect for our family of five and the great hot complimentary breakfast was just absolute icing on the cake. We would highly recommend this hotel, with the only proviso being that there is not much else close to the hotel but car rental places.

We stayed here in Early December before flying out to another location in the morning. We have stayed at some of the more Costa Rican (and cheaper!) hotels in San Jose in the past and found that the convenience of the Hampton Inn, not having to take a taxi ride into the city, etc outweighed the cost savings.

As others have said, the hotel is nice- just like a Hampton Inn in the US. The shuttle was right outside the door, check in was easy, and the room was clean. Beds were comfortable and the AC worked great. We worked out and the gym is very small but they have very modern elliptical fitness equipment and I was pretty surprised by that. There is a mini-fridge which is nice since and they have a little gift shop which sells the usual items found but also sells beer- it was nice to have a cold Imperial! Breakfast was very good- they were renovating the lobby and breakfast was back in a conference room but still good nonetheless.

We walked over to the casino for dinner and the little sports bar there has pretty decent food. Their happy hour is 2 for 1 drinks, but they didn't really give you that deal until you asked- fortunately I heard another table say something about it and they didn't charge us for the next round- so be careful with that.

Overall a good stay at the Hampton and would definately stay here again as we pass thru SJO.

Stayed December 2012, traveled with friends

The hotel is located close SJO airport and as such it offers all you need before/after a flight - clean rooms, comfortable bed, free international calls, good breakfast, free tranportation to and from the airport, business center, free wireless WiFi and most important - friendly and kind staff willing to help in any situation or question. Very good value for your money. Highly recommended as a starting/end point for your trip in Costa Rica.
