We stayed at Alegria the first night and the last night of our honeymoon. George, the owner, met us outside of Customs at the airport with a sign with our names on it. He drove us to his hotel. The 'Hotel' is a large 5-bedroom house with 5 bathrooms. It is like staying in someone's home as a guest, not at all like a hotel. The yard is beautiful and the house is very clean. We spent time in the living room relaxing and there is free WIFI. Georgo made us breakfast, even very early in the morning. He also drove me to pickup my rental car in the morning. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is located in a residential neighborhood on the north side of Alajuela. It is quiet, but can be a little tricky to find. Make sure that George sends you a map. For the price ($50/$60), this place is perfect. Much better than staying by the airport. It is only about 10 minutes from the airport, and 5 minutes from downtowen Alajeula. I strongly recommend staying here.
