We narrowly missed our flight and ended up looking for a place to stay and are glad we chose this place. Cheap enough and nice enough to not be any worry. The rooms were clean. Breakfast is served on the balcony that surrounds the building, it was good. Within walking distance to a large mall where we enjoyed watching Batman... More

I was not expecting much for the price of my room. Not a bad place for a quick stay on the way in or out of country.easy walk to the mall. I appreciated the free shuttle to the airport. Staff were helpful.Breakfast was filling. Not a highlight but no complaints either.

We chose a cheap spot to stay the night before our flight back to the United States. This place is exactly what you should expect for 40 or 50 bucks in a Third World country. The people who complain are a bunch of whiny babies. If you pay for a cheap hotel in a Third World country, I guarantee you... More

Great hotel close to the airport. I wouldn't say it has the same North American "Bed and Breakfast" feel to it but instead is a quaint hotel with a friendly vibe. The staff is helpful, good-natured and English speaking (if this is important to you). Our room was spacious with 2 double beds, towels, and a coffee maker with coffee... More

From the outside, this B&B does not look at all special. Inside there is a good welcome. The owners are very helpful, The room was basic but comfortable enough and the shower area was good. Outside the room was a shady verandah with tables and chairs. The internet connection was reasonable. We walked to a new mall, 10 minutes away... More

We arrived at this hotel at 1am after flying in to SJO. They quickly got us checked in and into a room so that we could crash. The breakfast was great in the morning. The people running it are very nice and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone coming through SJO and need a place either before or... More

This is the most enchanting hotel and the price is so reasonable. They are always there to help in any way.. They are attentive in getting me to the airport, back and forth. Also they can plan travel tours thru out Costa Rica. The hotel has little balconys to sit on for their breakfast servings. The hotel is within walking... More

Well, the A/c had a problem so the gal got a key to the room next door, went in borrowed that A/c clicker to turn on mine. Mind you those tenants were not there at the time. The room was small and dirty. The bathroom especially dirty, the sink was dirty and faucet did not turn off completely so it... More

Literally a stones throw away from the airport however even for one night I regretted staying here. The room resembled a depressing prison, small, dirty and smelly. I had to ask for a change of sheets as the pillow and sheets smelled badly. Even the "fresh" sheets still had some smell. It was the first time on my travels I... More
