We had a wonderful stay. The rooms are spacious, the lobby is very nice to lounge and the staff was great. We were in the gift shop and the girl working there had overheard us talking about my daughter's two year birthday in two days, later that evening while we were in the lobby the staff came over and sang...

Dear MrWilly2013, thank you so much for posting such wonderful comments. You have made every one here at the hotel very proud and motivated about our customer service among other things.

Stayed here the day we flew in and the day we flew out. Very nice staff. Walking distance to different places to eat. Rooms very quiet (a plus). Breakfast was good. Gift shop is nice. Interesting items there. I'd stay here again.

We used this hotel for two nights. Once when we flew in to San Jose late evening with another flight the following day and on our way home. There are two restaurants walking distance. One is a Costa Rican food place and the other is Denny´s. There is also a casino very close by, but we had our son with...

My husband and I stayed here the night before our early morning flight out of the San Jose airport. The staff was incredibly welcoming and we enjoyed the nice clean room. The charter bus to the airport is incredibly helpful. I would definitely stay here again

The Holiday Inn Express at the airport is a great place to crash on your way in or out of Costa Rica. It has a shuttle that will take you to nearby restaurants as well as a Denny's and casino within walking distance. They have a nice outdoor pool and a small exercise room. For early flights, they also have...

The hotel is barely 1 km from the airport, and we were luckly that our car rental was just 200 m in front of it (there was no possibility to know it before, we would have taken the car starting next morning if we knew that), but we just saw it when the car rental shuttle bus brought us to...

Great service, very clean rooms - best Holiday Inn Express in which I have ever stayed! If you need to leave for the airport before 6:30 am - they have 'to-go' boxes prepared to take with you. Stayed here several times and shuttles are timely - no long waits or unexpected delays - unless there are many others needing to...

Spent one night here before early flight am. Room was spacious, bathroom clean. A/C took a while to cool down the room. Paid my departure tax here at $33, saving me time at the airport. Ate at Denny's across the road. Breakfast bag and coffee to go was available at 4am. Luggage trolleys available.
