We arrived late at night and the staff quickly had us checked in with a rundown of the breakfast schedule and also helped us figure out our rental car in the morning. No complaints and would happily stay here again if flying into San Jose

If you need a place to stay that is close to the airport, I recommend you choose this hotel. It is clean, staff is well informed of the area and helpful. It is located close to a few restaurants and Walmart. Shuttle service is convenient to the airport. No bells and whistles for this place and food is a little... More

Hotel seems new. Room is clean, well stocked, and perfect for overnight stay in San Jose prior to excursions in CR. Breakfast is pretty good as well, and is included. Gym is better than I thought, and pool is small but quiet and adequate.

Perfect for an early morning departure and/or late evening arrival. Despite being a nice hotel, I wouldn't recommend staying here longer, since the area is totally uninteresting. The quick and frequent shuttle to/from the airport will save you the hassle (and the fees!) of a few hours' car rental at the beginning and/or end of your holiday.

We had two rooms, one on each side of the hotel. Both rooms were large and comfortable, but one was on the highway side and was noisier. I would give the quiet room a 5 and the highway room a 4.
