Ok so...my mom and I had an appointment that was not too far from downtown and we were looking for a central place to stay for a few days. We usually stay at the Marriott branded hotels and are very familiar with Alajuela but this was our first time in San Jose so we chose an American branded hotel that... More

I've stayed at the Sleep Inn Hotel many times. I am a choice hotels rewards member so I've been pretty faithful to the brand. I used to stay here using points because it took the minimum to stay at this location. If you are booking during a stay twice get a free promo, it is best to use the choice... More

I actually liked being here better than the Holiday Inn. Only thing was it was hard for Uber to figure out which end of the hotel you were on because it's gated. Other than that I had a great experience there and the price was very reasonable. It wasn't expensive. The Holiday Inn was a lot more

Downtown San Jose can be a bit sketchy at times, but it was nice to be able to turn the corner and walk into a safe, clean, hotel that would fit into any US location. The hotel is in a good location for work downtown. Staff very attentive and professional. In the lobby a helpful person behind the desk to... More

Newish hotel in lively downtown area but double glazed bedrooms keep things quiet. Vehicle parking on site and adjacent casino available should you feel lucky. Small breakfast restaurant and constant flow of tourists brought to the Hotel by large buses means sometimes there can be a problem with overcrowding. Patchy wifi depending on your room and no pool are the... More

Great staff, place is clean and very comfortable. Had a king size suite that was huge, well appointed, everything worked great. Free shuttle to and from airport, free breakfast. Although the scrambled eggs were kinda watery and scary looking. Looked like powder eggs. Besides that no problems. Internet signal could be better, but that goes for the intire country. Had...

The room was clean. Had 2 queen beads that were smallish, but fine. You can drink the tap water. The breakfast was fine, but the selection of food was the same each day which got old. We did get picked up at the airport and that is a real benefit. The motel is within walking distance of many of the... More

This is a well run, clean hotel close to all the downtown action with two casinos only steps away. They offer free shuttle to and from the airport, an excellent breakfast, reasonably good wifi and excellent client assistance in both English and Spanish. Did I mention how good the breakfasts were? I would certainly return to this facility again.

A free shuttle from the airport, and a great location to continue your Costa Rica trip! Staff is helpful and breakfast was good. Great place to rest after a long travel day. Beware of expensive restaurants near by!
