“Costa Rica beauty, Hampton standards”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The only difference between this and the dozens of Hampton Inn's I have stayed at in the US was the friendlier staff and nicer breakfast area. Treat yourself to a meal across the street at Denny's before heading back into the jungle!

We have stayed at this hotel over a dozen times in the past three years. It is always like coming home when we arrive. The employees are knowledgeable of the surrounding area and always help us with whatever we need. The breakfast is delicious and the rooms are so comfortable and peaceful. For those late afternoon and evening arrivals, this is the place to stay! In fact, we have actually stayed an additional night because it is a top notch hotel.

This hotel is a must stay especially if you are arriving late at night or have a early morning flight it is so close and they offer so many free extras. also they have a service where you can pay your departure tax so you don't have to wait in the long line at the airport.

Dear TripAdvisor Member, we appreciate that you took your time to write this review. We are very happy that you enjoy your stay with us, besides being so satisfied with the hotel´s location and the services we offer because our goal is to provide all our guests with the best services and accommodatios possible. Since we are less than 1 mile away from the airport, our guests are able to get extra time to rest before leaving to take their flight besides from being able to pay the departing tax right inside the hotel instead of having to stand in line to pay it at the airport.
Also, for those guests whose flights departs very early in the morning, we offer them our exclusive on the go breakfast so they can have something to eat when they get to the airport.
Thank you very much for choosing us and we hope to see you again in the near future.
Best regards.

Superb accommodations close to San Jose Int'l Airport. Arrived here on a fluke and discovered what will be my regular lodging on future trips to San Jose. Friendly, gracious staff who all speak English to perfection.

Very good value for the money spent. Two queen beds, free breakfast, internet access and proximity to the SJO airport were factors that were used. The consistency that you get at most Hampton Inns was also a factor. Would definately stay at this hotel again.

This is a great place to stay near the airport. Very clean and extremely friendly front desk. Free shuttle to the airport. Restaurants nearby in walking distance. Free international calls back to the US and free WiFi. Full breakfast provided in the morning, but they can also pack you a "breakfast to go" if you have an early morning flight. Several rental car agancies are located right next door so convenient if you are dropping off the night before your flight. I certainly wouldn't want to stay here if you want to "experience" Costa Rica, but it was an excellent way to wrap up our trip before we headed back home. It felt like we had 1 foot back in the US before leaving Costa Rica.

Hampton Inn San Jose Airport is an excellent choice. Safe and quiet. The staff is top notch with smiles and greetings at every passing. Top grade taxi service to almost anywhere is either complimentary for close by spots, like the airport, or a cut above for a trip to nearby attractions and activities. Definitely family friendly. Extra clean room with a perfect bed. Full breakfast buffet is satisfying. Whether one night or a week, this is the right choice.

Room Tip: For an extra $8, I booked a spacious studio with the king bed.
