Clean and Quite. Good breakfast selection. ADA accessible, Free WiFi. Best part is the location to the airport for travelers. A no hassle shuttle service is available. Super friendly staff. Lobby area is clean, spacious breakfast area. Coffee available 24/7.

Hotel shuttle very easy to and from hotel, free breakfast was also nice, with the typical costa rican food always available. Right across street from casino and restaurant too if you need... More

You are going to get your average Holiday Inn Express room at this location. However, I found the service to be exceptional! I was able to get a last minute, one night stay with no problem. We left early, early Saturday morning for our flight only to find out at the airport that our flight was the next day! When... More

I provided the front desk with a list of four deficiencies we found in our room. Otherwise, we well stay here again. Conveniently located next to the airport, with a free shuttle to the airport, a Denny's next door. Wifi and breakfast was very good, and the place, overall was very clean. The staff was very attentive and pleasant.

There is nothing spectacular about the rooms themselves - average at best. HOWEVER, the hotel is within a mile of the airport, the staff is very friendly, and the 24 hour shuttle is a spectacular amenity.

Good hotel, keeping Holiday Inn standards. Close (5 minutes) to airport. Free shuttle every 30 minutes. Very quiet even close to airport. Nice pool, clean and relaxing. Breakfast is simple and enough one.
