I found great refuge here after a difficult and long day of driving from the Osa Penninsula on the south pacific coast. Kevin and Noelia were very welcoming and professional at check-in, and upgraded my room after all three of us were subjected to a couple of extremely obnoxious arrivals.
I also made good use of the hotel's free unlimited calling home to the US, and caught up on a week of news and emails in their convenient business center. The free morning hot breakfast was excellent, and prepared me for the long day of flying home to San Diego from the airport literally across the street..

We stayed here our last night before heading back home. :/
It was very close to the airport. Clean, great breakfast. And it's great you can pay the departure tax at the hotel, the line was super long at the airport. We would stay again for sure.

Excellent service, friendly staff, clean and safe & good value for money. Large sized bedrooms, comfortable and clean bed of larger than normal King size, complimentary breakfast, including a To Go packed one. Very close to the airport, less than USD10 by taxi Good offers for local tours available within the hotel and recommended to pay Departure Tax at hotel in advance of departure as there can be queues at the airport to pay this. It costs a premium of USD 4 to pay at the convenince of the hotel, but it is well worth it. Please don't lose the receipt of the tax paid as it is very much required at the airline check in counter.

My Interbus shuttle dropped me off directly to the hotel. I asked the staff if they spoke English and was greeted warmly. The business center and the travel center made it easy to pay my departure tax and confirm my flight for the next day.

This was by far the best Hampton Inn I have ever stayed at. Everything was perfect. Hospitality, room, decor, airport location, amenities, etc. We were offered a free taxi ride to a nearby restaurant. A bagged breakfast was provided for early departures.

You can see the Hampton Inn from the baggage claim. Getting there is easy and inexpensive. Luxurious beds and bed linens, large clean bathrooms and a breakfast to open at 6am that opens at EXACTLY 6am. The fresh buffet breakfast is accompanied by free lobby coffee 24/7. We always use this hotel when we go to a resort in Costa Rica. We have enjoyed excellent service and the one time that there was no hot water in the morning, a cheerful refund of the room cost (satisfaction is guaranteed!).

Room Tip: Non smoking rooms are available.
