We stayed here for one night after a week-long trip through Costa Rica. It is a very American hotel; there are normal door locks (no triple-turn deadbolts), a fitness room, a small pool and hot tub, and the staff all speak quite fluent English.
When we left at the morning, the man at the front desk told us exactly how to get to the airport bus and where to stand in line. Everyone was quite helpful.
It's not located in the best neighborhood, but we didn't feel afraid walking around during the day at all, as late as 8 or 9pm, since there were plenty of other people out and about (many well-dressed).
