I live in Panama. I had back surgery in US. Very tired upon arrival. I got a cab. Asked to be taken to a reasonable hotel. But what happened is this; The driver doubled charged me. Then after speaking with the hotel clerk, the clerk 'did the same'. I know this because the other guests receipts confirmed it. 42,000 colones...

This was not a fancy hotel, but the people were so helpful. They had great recs for dining in walking distance and seemed to know just what we were looking for. Got us to the bus, helped with phones etc. It is a few minutes from the airport and a great place to stop between Costa Rican adventures.

We stayed a La Guaria for one night after a late flight into San Jose. This is by no means a luxury hotel, but it is safe, comfortable and clean. We stayed in a two bedroom suite which was perfect for us and the three kids. The included breakfast was simple but tasty. This hotel reminds me a lot of...

Stayed on night in this hotel as it was close to the airport. The staff was friendly and the hotel cute. We got to our room and noticed the mattresses were from the 80's with no mattress pads. Needless to say we should have looked closer. W woke up the next morning...caught our plane and the itching started. I was...

My first impression was "yikes, what have I booked?" We got in on a late flight and were renting a car the next day to drive to Jaco. Didn't want to drive at night. When we got off of our flight, we gave the hotel name to a taxi driver and he took us straight there. He told us it...

Security was very good.There is a pool that seemed decent and a pleasant surprise.If...

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...

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...

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,...
