The only logical choice for staying close to the airport if you are awaiting an early morning next day flight. Very green and quiet, with a relaxing pool. Lots of birds that just add to the atmosphere. Our room was great, very clean with comfortable beds and a nice hot shower! On site restaurant was fairly priced and had great...

Stayed here to start and end trip because of closeness to airport. Quiet hotel even though very close to airport. Rooms were large and clean, though very hot due to no air conditioning. Had an ant problem in the lower level room during first stay. Staff answered any questions though kept to themselves unless approached. Pubic Wifi was available for...

We did not feel safe in our lower level room, nor in the area the hotel is located. YIKES! The fence has razor wire around it, but with holes under the fence!!! The exterior doors did not lock and the interior / hallway / main entry door was made of a hollow core panel. The hallway has windows with bars...

A great hotel tucked away in a mainly light industrial area 10 minutes from the airport in quite large gardens so the views are good. We arrived late and had a very comfortable room, a good size and clean but no aircon. Breakfast was good and staff very friendly. Not sure I would use this as any more than a...

If you're looking for a place to stay near the airport ...I highly recommend this one. It's not the usual impersonal chain type of airport hotel. Just a few minutes drive to the airport, yes you can hear the planes but that's most airport hotels. We were delayed an extra 3 nights due to flight cancellations because of volcanic ash,...

We stayed here our first night in San Jose. The hotel is gorgeous, very rustic. The room was clean and comfortable. There is no AC, but there is a ceiling fan. The staff was very welcoming, and the breakfast the next morning was superb. I would absolutely stay here again!

This hotel is a good place to stay near the airport. It is not the most modern or convenient but certainly is acceptable, clean, and well managed. It is not close to any restaurants. The beds are comfortable. The pool is very nice.

We had an early morning flight so we wanted a Hotel nearby SJO. This hotel has all the ingredients to be great - great location, great setting, nice rooms, well maintained, off the main road so no traffic noise - but it misses out on the little things. For one we never got better than lukewarm showers, secondly the wifi...

Hi guys, There is no lift. Fortunately we had a room on the ground floor. The rooms are clean. And nicely decorated. The staff is attentive. The breakfast is good, the dinner is even better. An excellent shuttle service to the airport. No airco, but a fan that did his job very well. As I said, we will be back....
