Holiday Inn is almost right across from airport with free transport to airport. Complimentary breakfast and Denny's next door for dinner. Very nice hotel.

Holiday Inn Express and Hampton Inn are both very close to the airport - but just "cookie cutter" American-style hotels. And Denny's? Why bother to come to Costa Rica at all!?

Of course, either of these hotels will work - but I would recommend looking for a comfortable Costa Rican hotel. Hotel Aeropuerto would be good but not a good location for walking around - you would need to take a taxi anywhere.

Another possibility is Hotel Los Volcanes which is near the center of Alajuela. It's an old historic house turned into a small hotel, comfortable and easy walking to a choice of restaurants, shopping and banking.

I recommended La Rosa de American because I have stayed there and they have a great "family room" which would provide space enough for everyone - a large room, small kitchen, bedroom - without having to book two rooms. And walking distance to restaurants.

As roadadvisor said, the close option is Hampton Inn. A new options and free shuttle service are Loft Hotel or Studio Hotel
