We spent one night at hotel Dona Ines after our arrival in San Jose. The owner is really helpful (also organized our transport from the airport) and friendly. The place itself is a little bit rundown, but o.k.. Matresses and wall paper need and upgrade! We didn't have any problems with cockroaches or whatsoever. The place is close to the city center (where there is not much to see). The hotel is close to the bus stations (only around 10min) and as we had to leave very early in the morning it was quite convenient.

Well, cocroach in my backpack says everything (I really don't like them)... It used to be a nice place but now is humid and dirty. Stuff is helpful and very friendly. Very good location, close to every important spot in the city, like a bus stations and city center which is not nice, to be honest.
Price including breakfast is 65 $.

Room Tip: Ask for room with window.

The Dona Ines has seen better days. To be fair, it looks like San Jose has too. She (Dona Ines) is clearly a grand old dame fading gracefully. The hotel is clean, quiet and the staff is excellent. There is a charming interior courtyard with lots of period furnishings. The hotel is fundamentally sound, and the breakfast is hearty and wholesome. The staff were tremendously easy to work with over email as we booked from Boston, and the service from check in to breakfast to arranging airport transport was absolutely flawless. While not a Marriott by a long stretch, it was a perfectly adequate for what we were looking for - a safe, clean, comfortable place to rest our heads for a night before continuing on to La Fortuna. Simple enhancements from new fabric on the headboards and settees and better lighting (especially in the bathrooms) would go a long way to enhancing her charms.

We recently spent one night in this hotel and were somewhat disappointed. The hotel was clean and the staff extremely friendly and helpful, but there were a few drawbacks. The rooms are set around a courtyard, nice but at night it can get noisy when guests arrive late! And the breakfast was very basic. Also, the street where the hotel is located is not very pleasant, but it is not far from the downtown area, and there is an excellent restaurant across the street.
