Rode Transnica up from Managua the day before catching an early a.m. flight from San Jose, Costa Rica. Had to look for someone at the airport after waiting 40 min. for the shuttle. He was helpful. Check-in was quick.
Great Internet signal throughout the hotel and complimentary!
Wal-Mart is literally next door if that is helpfully will be if you don't want to overspend on fairly basic dining in the lobby "restaurant". I actually had some good soup and bakery items from Wal-Mart (and a Dr. pepper!)
Everything is new and clean.
Beds were good but not great.
They put a $30 refundable deposit on a credit card...and with $5 bottles of water in the room, I wonder how easy it would be to get stuck with charges for extras once long gone from the hotel (or simply not being refunded the $30 charge). We will see....
Going to use the 4 a.m. complimentary shuttle tomorrow. Hope that works out well.
I'd stay again if I got another good deal on the room (paid $70 which seems like a very special rate as I check around). Otherwise I would be just as willing to try some of the other airport hotels in the area.
