We stayed here so that our trip to the airport would be short and fast. We arrived stinky from being rained on for 2 days. We laid out everything in the room so it could dry while we were out exploring in Downtown San Jose and dinner, but it didn't work because it is so humid

This is our go-to airport hotel when flying in or out of SJO Costa Rica. Each time we stay, it is as good, or better, than the last time. The hotel has everything figured out in order to cater to the needs of airport clientele. It runs very efficiently. An extra bonus is the

Dear lizt331, thanks for posting your superb review. It is very rewarding knowing that you had such a nice stay at our hotel, finding it so comfortable, with such a good location (we are less than a mile from the airport and right across our parking lot from several car rentals, from a couple of restaurants and from a casino) and with excellent services (like our free 24 hour shuttle transportation to and from the airport and our complimentary daily breakfast among many others). We are very proud to have a very attentive and friendly staff who truly embodies everything our hotel and brand represents. It was a pleasure being at your service. We hope to see you back soon. Thank you for staying with us. Warmest regards. Marjorie Espinoza. Guest Relations Manager

I had to pay $25 to check in early. This was fine with me because I was able to eat breakfast and they have a nice breakfast buffet. Nicer than the USA style breakfasts that are typical to holiday inns.

Can you leave your vehicle in the parking lot for a week while traveling out of the country?
I would guess so, looked like standard parking lot in well lit area

The shuttle is labeled, easy to tell. Never had a problem. If so, I’m sure you can call, or take taxi. It’s only a 2-5 minute ride across the street from the airport
