Having stayed in a few other hotels in the area, I was, unfortunately, not too impressed with this one.

Our room was quite pooky and had a very strong odor of toilet cleaner that we could not get rid of.

I will say parking of our rental vehicle was safe. Front desk staff were helpful.

However, I cancelled our return visit and went back to a hotel of similar price that I have used before and really enjoyed.

This is a well maintained hotel, the rooms are spacious and clean. Free airport shuttle gets you to the airport in under 10. No complaints about the free breakfast. Got to park inside beside the lobby in a single car parking spot. Helpful staff. A good place to spent the night before your flight.

Four of us stayed here for one night in December 2016. Very convenient to the airport - we just took a taxi when we got in and the hotel paid for it when we arrived. The room we had wasn't very big but it was clean and quiet. The staff was very nice and helpful. They let us park in the secure parking after check out so that we didn't have to worry about our luggage while we got lunch. The breakfast was basic but good.

La Guaria is a modest, clean and well run hotel for travelers looking for budget accommodations near San Jose International Airport. Senor Jose, one of the co-owners, is a dignified and gracious old world host. Our room was basic but clean and served the purpose. The bathroom was also basic but clean. Continental Breakfast is included in the room rate, and is basic but adequate. No eggs or cooked meats, but you get toast, butter, jam, cereal, muffins, milk and fruits. La Guaria is also just a block from one of the city squares, and just a couple of blocks from decent restaurants of the type the locals, not tourists, eat at. So set your expectations accordingly. Senor Jose will make recommendations if you ask. We ate dinner at a Colombian restaurant about 3 blocks away and the food was delicious. During the day, you can park on the street right in front of the hotel - there is a CC camera in the reception and the receptionist can monitor your vehicle with ease. There is also secure parking for your rental car for the night about two doors down that is covered as part of your room rate until 7 am in the morning, when you have to move your car back on to the street. We got to meet a couple of other families vacationing from the US and Canada over breakfast, which was nice.

Perfect hotel close to the San Jose, CR airport.. We stayed here for two nights. The first night our flight came in really late ( 10:00pm) and we needed a place for the night. Found this place on hotels.com.. hotel is a gem for approx $ 50-60 USD per night. The rooms are clean with free wifi ( the signal is really strong in the room unlike some hotels). Free parking is available although we did not use it. The pool area looked wonderful and the hotel staff were really friendly. They sent us clear instructions before hand as to how to get to the airport( hop on to the orange taxi and get to the hotel. The fare is paid by the hotel staff.) Good breakfast.. and they arranged a taxi back to the airport at the time we wanted on our way back. There are a lot of restaurants and stores nearby.. we walked around the area to get a feel of the city. They provide towels and soap.. suggest you bring in your own shampoo and conditoner along with a hair dryer. Also I would also recommend bringing a charge extension cable to charge multiples devices as there were limited ports in the wall. Overall, comfy place for the price paid..Yes ! We would recommend this hotel.
