Stayed here due to proximity to airport...for meeting a lat flight. Great location, nice staff, upgraded to a family room which was large....small but nice pool. Great restaurants nearby, about 2 blocks off Central Park.....so was able to walk to the Mercado, bank, and museum, and churches for sight-seeing during our short stay.
Front desk staff were fabulous...calling cabs, directions, suggestions.

Only thing I didn’t like was the breakfast...continental....

I would have given a better rating because the hotel is well located ,breakfast is included and they have a shuttle to the airport but the beds were not the greatest.I've had better beds in hostels. But it is a good deal for2 people

The place is a bit spartan but for the price it is ok if you want a simple accommodation near the airpot which was my primary reason for staying here. I would not stay here as a base to see San Jose. On the map the streets look quite small so I didn't expect it to be a major truck and bus route. We had the largest room, a huge family suite on the corner which meant that the bus and traffic noise was there most of the time. The backside of the hotel could be much quieter.

As a suggestion to make life easier for guests I'd suggest more hooks for hanging clothes in the bathroom. There's a a reasonable amount of room just no place to hang up clothes. The a/c worked quite well and the hotel feels well managed. We requested parking and they have a great arrangement with the parking garage 30 feet away from the hotel.

The location nearer to the airport was my main criteria in selecting this hotel.

I ended up needing a place to stay at the last minute in Alajuela, and my taxi driver suggested this place. It’s fine (relatively clean), but I wouldn’t call it nice. In addition, the staff were not particularly friendly. The main benefit is that it’s about a 5 minute drive from the San Jose airport. Overall, I would advise travelers to skip San Jose and Alajuela and fly out on a red eye or during the day to avoid the night stay. If you really get stuck, this isn’t a terrible option, but it’s likely not going to be memorable or a great night’s sleep either. I would give it a 2.5.
Thank clarahaskell

We were actually able to park in one of the two spots right inside the hotel. The are a really helpful group of people and have nice rooms. Breakfast is simple but still recommend the place
