The traffic is horrible here so it is important to stay close to the airport. Our flight left at 7am so we needed to be there by 5am :( We feel like we got to sleep as long as we could because this hotel is so close to the airport. It was clean and the staff was very friendly and... More

Pickup from the airport is confusing - look through the throngs of people waving signs for one that says "Courtyard Marriott". An English-speaking hotel rep will take you out of the chaos to a spot from which the shuttle van will pick you up. Check-in is super simple, just like any Marriott anywhere in the US. The hotel rooms look... More

I stayed one night prior to my flight. They offer a free shuttle to/from the airport. The room was large and comfortable in this modern hotel. Their open space restaurant has a really great breakfast buffet which was complimentary on my rewards status. Nice bar and good dinner options. Efficient and friensly front desk and restaurant staff.

I stayed here for one night prior to an early flight out of the San Jose airport. This hotel is excellent for those purposes. I was upgraded to an executive room and it was a huge, with a comfy sofa/chaise lounge type thing to chill out on. The restaurant isn't great but is open until midnight, and there are some... More

Typical airport hotel with breakfast 11 $ or 20$ ( 2 types ),or we can go out and eat at restaurant just in front of the hotel. Go to downtown with the hotel bus for a flat rate of 35$. Great service, very quiet. A Wallmart at 2 minutes walk and an empty fridge in the room.

Clean rooms, friendly English-speaking staff, and very close to the airport. Perfect for late arrivals and early departures. Shuttles leave for airport beginning at 4 a.m. as most flights out are early. Breakfast a little pricey, but it was fresh and delicious. Can't beat this hotel for all the above reasons.

Very nice place, super clean, just built few years ago. The workers are nice and speaks English very well. Close to the airport, like 5 minutes away.... Huge shopping center cross the street.

My husband became ill when we were in Costa Rica and we had to leave early. We stayed at this hotel the night before the flight back to the U.S. and found it to be an oasis of calm and efficiency.

As a regular Marriott guest, I had high standards coming to the Courtyard and was not disappointed. The room was really clean and very comfortable. There was an easy shuttle service to and from SJO airport and free parking. The staff was nice, but still new and learning the ropes. There's a restaurant in the hotel that does a great... More

This is a nice clean modern Marriott property. It's very close to the airport with shuttle facilities and you don't have to deal with the rotary of doom (between 3 and the Pan American) if you are driving. Also, no flashing casino lights out the window. There are about 4-5 restaurants and a Walmart within walking distance. City Mall wouldn't... More
