The Best Western Irazu is located very close to San Jose and yet in a more tranquil area. We stayed here for 4 nights. Our plane arrived around 6:00 pm so we took advantage of the free airport shuttle and rented our car the following morning, which saved us about $80 in car rental.
The hotel has some nice key features, a pool located in a beautiful garden, a very nice jacuzzi, free international phone calls and the best of all, a coin laundry. My kids enjoyed the pool, I was able to make some phone calls to friends and family in Europe for free but the coin laundry saved the trip, as I was able to get fresh clean clothes for the 4 of us for the rest of the trip.
We stayed with our 2 kids in one room and I have to say that the rooms are rather small, that is probably my only complain. They have an ATM in the lobby which is quite handy and the breakfast is at the next door Denny's which is not a buffet breakfast, gives you 5 options, if you choose the "Typical" you will get a mini lunch, more than filling.
If you rent a car and go towards the Poas Volcano, ask for directions on how to get off the highway when you come back because it can be rather tricky, you need to pass two exits and then get off and back in the highway.
The free WiFi not always works well but they have a nice business center with free computer usage and free coffee. The hotel is a good value for the money, clean and friendly.
