We had an early flight the next day, so wanted to stay close to the airport. They provided exactly what we needed. Secure location, clean room, and thats it. It was a bit overpriced in my opinion but they did give us a free shuttle to the airport in the morning and the staff was very friendly. There arent any...

We booked on-line trusting the write-up associated with it. We were met at the airport close to midnight (our arrival time) and taken back 6:00 am for departure. Ricardo offered to assist us with phoning and translating information relating to car rentals. He offered tips where to go, what to do, else where to stay on our holiday. The room...

The staff, room, and accommodations at Hotel Santa Maria Inn, much like a quaint bed and breakfast, all of it was very good, and very secure. From now on when we are in San Jose, Hotel Santa Maria Inn will be our 1st choice over and above the more expensive and less authentic commercial/corporate inns, hotels or motels near the...

Very small and nice hotel, dog friendly and accomodating. I only stayed one night and it was quiet and breakfast included. The hotel is only minutes from airport and shuttle is included. People working there are very friendly.

Very pleasant, kind of away from Everything was very Nice. There is little soda/restaurant with authentic Costa Rican/Tico food. Is a great place for one night and very close to the airport. Family owned and operated and they are very accommodating.

Though we didn't expect a 5 star hotel, we did expect much more than we got. To begin with, it took 20 minutes to get someone to respond to the bell at the locked entry gate (in late afternoon). The room was okay but there was absolutely no hot water for showers and no "as advertised" coffeemaker, though there were...

“Small rooms. Comfortable bed. Dated Television unit and window airconditioner. Front 2nd floor units allow for view of airport and mountain range. On a clear day can view smoking volcano. No microwave, or room refrigerator in room, but a common use area has a refrigerator, microwave and counter top for food preparation.”
