Stayed here one night before an early flight out of SJO. Very close to airport, with a complimentary shuttle service. Rooms are typical Courtyard, but clean and in good shape. Restaurant/bar was open until midnight. Several restaurants in close proximity. Good value. I would recommend this place if you need to be close to the airport.

If you need a hotel that is very, very close to the airport (and free shuttle transportation) with good quality accommodation, this is a good bet. That being said there are a few areas I was not too happy about. 1. We arrived into San Jose airport which is a very chaotic arrivals area. The information from the hotel told...

We spent one night here as it was only about a mile from the San Jose airport. The person at checkin was very nice and welcoming. The room was very clean. Courtyard beds are usually firm, which I like, but this was a little too firm. I loved that the shower was not over a bathtub, but for you folks...

I'll be honest, my motivation for staying at the Courtyard was it's convenient location to the airport and the free pick-up/drop-off airport shuttle. That said, I was pleased to find that, beyond my simple needs as an airport shuttle, the Courtyard offered a quiet and comfortable sleep before my early morning departures. My room was comfortable and clean. The hotel...

This is a nice and quiet hotel near the airport, you have free shuttle bus every 30min and it's 5 min away which is nice, breakfast was good and with many things to choose from. The price is not so bad, but in Costa Rica things are more expensive then i was expecting

I stayed one night night at this hotel before heading home. The Nayara Hotel & Spa ruined it for me because the contrast between the two hotels was so stark. My daughter on the other hand, said she found the bed more comfortable at the Courtyard. Once I got over the initial shock, I was fine. The room was ok...

First, it is a Marriott, and it has all the Marriott features. No need to tell you about all the Marriott features because this hotel has them all, from comfort, clean, wi-fi and gym. The free breakfast buffet shames its' American cousins. Too bad the U.S. Residence Inn or Courtyards do not provide this breakfast. The staff is top notch...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our trip. It a nice property with a strip mall next door with other food options. Walmart is right beside it as well for snacks.
