Chose to stay here at the end of our visit to Costa Rica after returning our rental car, as we were flying out the next morning. There doesn't seem to be much within walking distance though Rosti Pollo, Dennys, and a casino are adjacent. Traffic in the area appears to get heavy at times, but noise from traffic and the...

We stayed one night at this hotel. The hotel clerk at the front desk was very friendly, which makes you feel welcome. The rooms were nice too. The only thing we're definitely not happy about, is the shop in the hotel. We bought there a lot of - in our opinion very expensive - postcards. They offered a service to...

Because the hotel shuttle runs 24 hours and there is a 24 hour Denny's just a 1 minute walk from the lobby, this is the perfect place to stay the night prior you departing flight. You can have a good breakfast just before you catch the shuttle to the airport. The shuttle takes about 3 to five minutes and it...

We arrived here at the hotel just after our plane arrived here in San Jose last night. The front desk clerk was all smiles and very friendly, even helping me out a bit with my minimal Spanish.

A last night here was a must have for us as we were heading back home on an early flight (7 AM) from San Jose airport. As there is the need to be at least two hours in advance at the check-in our last "night" in the country would have been a short one. No reason to have it shorter...

We stayed at the Holiday Inn because of its proximity to the airport. Reasonable price and clean rooms but most important they had 24 hr airport shuttle service. Since we were leaving on an early flight before breakfast they packed a nice snack for us to take. We will be staying there on our return trip in November.
