It's clean, it has free wi-fi (and desktop computers for those without a laptop), free local calls and calls to the US, Google Television, a safe box for valuables, a small fridge, a small restaurant within, A/C, comfy beds...I can go on and on. I love this place. I loved it so much, I returned at the end of my trip for my final night. The staff is amazing and very hospitable (as are most Ticos). The phones did not work from my room during my last stay, but they allowed me to use their phone at the front desk. No biggie!
The downside is the taxi trip from the airport. It is roughly $20-25 depending on traffic (the meters increase about 20 colones per 5 seconds) and whatever route the driver decides he'll take. But, that is not the hotel's fault. I'm sure if they could, they'd move closer to the airport and get quadruple the business. With luggage, I did not bother with the buses.
I highly recommend this hotel.
