Looking for hotel AT or very near SJO

Hello, I'm looking for a hotel at the airport. We are flying into SJO in the evening and driving out early the next morning. I would prefer a hotel that is full service and has a decent restaurant and bar on the premises. Any suggestions?

I already checked out the Hampton Inn and Suites which would be perfect except they have no real restaurant on the premises.

I've had friends stay at the Hampton Inn at the airport and be very satisfied. This and several airport hotels have really been created for people doing just what you're doing.

Thanks. I checked that one out already. I was hoping for something more full service, were we can have dinner at the hotel as soon as we arrive. I don't think such a hotel exists so we will probably stay at the Hampton Inn and have dinner elsewhere.

There is a Dennys and a Rosti Pollo right next to Hampton Inn. There are a couple of more traditional restaurants a quick walk down the road from the hotel.

There is also a Casino on site if you stay at the Hampton Inn or Garden Court Hotel.

Thank you, I will NOT eat at Dennys (I'm assuming this is the same chain that we have here in the states), but I wil check out the other restaurants.

The Orquideas Inn is my favorite place to stay in Alajuela (where the airport is located). They are 10 minutes from the airport, can arrange for tansportation to/from the hotel, have a great bar and restaurant, and the BEST buffet breakfast i've had in Costa Rica!

Look up their reviews here on Trip Advisor for more info

sean420,

I just checked out their website at www.orquideasinn.com. It looks great and perfect for what I was looking for (a hotel near the airport with a real restaurant). Thank you for this recommendation.
