After being up a 4 am to travel to CR this was a great little Inn to overnight before beginning my travels through the rest of the country.....Inn is clean, comfortable beds, great shower and very friendly owners were at the airport to meet my arrival. Breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, eggs - made to order, juice, coffee and toast was lovely way to start my day.

There is a free computer for use of the guests as well as wi-fi throughout. Not much in the area as it is very residental but its only a $ 4 cab ride to go into the city of Alajuela that has a great square and market and dining options all withing walking distance. Cabs are all lined up at the square so its easy to return to the Inn. Lots of fresh air at the inn rather than being in the town or San Jose with the heat.

There is no pool or activities at the Inn so it is best for an overnight as it's only about 5 - 10 minutes from the airport.....with no planes flying overhead.

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We were robbed by a taxi driver in San Jose so the Hotel's shuttle service was highly appreciated.

Room Tip: Chose a Hotel that offeres shuttle service.

Cute and clean little inn close to the airport. They were very accommodating and helped us order takeout when we arrived late at night. It was wonderful to have someone there who spoke excellent English and was able to answer our questions. There is a very nicely outfitted tiny breakfast room with a balcony, microwave, refrigerator, dishes,etc that we were welcome to use any time and the tap water is safe to drink. The family room was very pleasant and roomy with a nice bathroom, coffeemaker and air conditioner. We would stay there again.

My friend and I stayed one night at the Hotel Santa Maria Inn on the home leg of our trip to Costa Rica. Clean, comfortable and well located, we were able to get a good night's rest prior to the long flight home.

Recommended for an overnight stop either when arriving or departing.
