          I liked the location of the hotel to the airport it was very convenient. The rooms were exceptional and the staff was friendly and helpful.

          Perfect location, especially since we needed to bring back our rental car. Very comfortable rooms, good beds. Breakfast improved since last time we visited.

        • Couple

          The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We appreciated the proximity to the rental car agencies (across the parking lot from Thrifty and Budget), the free internet and printing services, the comfortable king bed, the clean room and bathroom (found a bug but not uncommon for Costa Rica), and the delicious breakfast (ham, eggs, cereal, toast, fresh fruit). Shuttle to the airport ran every 15min, 24 hours, and free international calls included.

        • Older travelers

          Excellently located by the highway 5 mins from the airport, but tucked away enough to feel quiet and quaint. Located in a small mall with Denny's, Rental Car companies galore, a funky Casino and a local Chicken place it is very convenient too. Check in and walk across the road for dinner! After spending 2 months travelling in Costa Rica, my wife's reaction to the hotel and surroundings was: Finally! Back to civilization! Overpriced in Costa Rica terms, but a good choice for the American who had enough Pura Vida and just wanna get back to it all....

          It's very comfortable, clean, and pleasant. I loved it! It's also so close to the airport--a huge plus.

        • Older travelers

          It was very important to us to be able to stay close to the airport because we had an early morning flight on our return. It was great that we were offered free shuttle to the airport that morning. We were able to turn in our rental car a day earlier.

          The bed was a bit too hard....if this is my only complaint, you did a great job

          It was close to the airport and this excellent. This hotel is a great starting place to start or finish one's holiday in Costa Rica if one has a late night arrival or a very early departure

        • Couple

          Location next to airport, free shuttle service which was available whenever we needed it. Denny's restaurant next door. Clean, tidy and pretty quiet, recommended if you have a very late arrival or early departure from San Jose airport

          The take-out breakfast was a little small, but other than that, no complaints!
