We stayed here for two nights on our way out of Costa Rica recently.
The hotel itself is a little difficult to find, being on a side street parallel to a highway, and we got lost in some of the gated communities nearby trying to get to it initially. Once we were there, things were fine. There is parking on site, but at times of peak occupancy, not all visitors will be able to get a parking spot.
The rooms are basic and large, clean and comfortable. It can be a bit noisy here if there are large groups staying, but that isn't really a problem when considered in light of the noise that is so prevalent in San Jose. The decor and appliances are somewhat dated, but fully functional.
We didn't quite get the same warmth from the staff that others here have reported - perhaps we didn't quite 'get it' because we are not from North America. We certainly were never made to feel unwelcome; it's just that we didn't quite get the homely feeling that other reviewers have described.
The hotel rate includes transport to the airport, however, it isn't an in-house shuttle, rather they pay for a taxi to get you there. It wasn't a problem for us, but I can imagine that at times of peak demand, this could potentially be an issue for some.
It's a good value hotel, and if you want a no fuss place to stay, then this place fits the bill nicely.
