          I am thinking of going to San Jose for some dental work at La Prisma They send only two recommended hotels and neither had a pool. Are there any close around that had a pool but were still reasonable??

          Stay in Alajuela, near the airport. The hotels are much nicer. Hostel Casa Colon is a great place right in the middle of the city, but probably not what you are looking for.
