This hotel is conveniently located close to the highway, but far enough away that it's not noisy and you can still walk to convenience stores and restaurants. The rooms themselves were very nice and the beds are comfortable with ample pillows. The TV is on the small side, especially for such big rooms, but was a minor inconvenience.
When checking in we were in line and the receptionist waved ahead the guy behind us for no reason other than perhaps he was Costa Rican and we're not or maybe because he was wearing a nice suit. We were stuck waiting an extra 10 minutes to check in despite being in line first. I know an extra ten minute wait is not a big deal, but it was offensive that they actually encouraged him to jump in line ahead of us.
Our stay included breakfast but the service was dismal, we were a little late for breakfast: 9:30am so all of the tables were dirty from previous guests, when we asked the waiter to help us he looked annoyed and simply took off the linens leaving the glass underneath which was still covered in crumbs from previous guests. The breakfast itself was not very good either, scrambled eggs and pinto that had been sitting for too long and stale bread with a few sad looking pieces of watermelon and papaya. Perhaps it would have been better if we'd gone earlier.
