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,...

It's ok, according to quality and price ratio. Although it was noisy and no elevator to the third floor was available. The staff was helpful. We also get transfer to the airport for free, which was nice!

Great value, friendly staff and very clean. Perfect place for a night in between flights. 5 Minutes from the hotel to the airport. They collaborate with the orange airport taxis and it works perfectly. The hotel picks up the bill and organizes the transfer. No hazzle, no extra costs, highly recommended. The hotel itself is very clean but basic. The...

Not fancy at all. But is a clean spot and a good bed. Has a small pool in case you want to temp avoid the heat. I checked other places around and this was one of the few that meet (exceed)the minimal requirements. Price was good. Recommended

We spent the first night in La Guaria Hotel when we land in Costa Rica Convenient location (5km far from the airport), very basic and simple rooms. If you look for a basic, clean but convenient location this is a right choice! Breakfast is included and service is at the right level. Pura vida :)

I only stayed here for one night after our flight got cancelled and couldn't fly out until the next day. But the hotel was convenient to the airport and they paid for the taxi service, which was nice. Friendly staff. They were able to accommodate us for that one night and it was already late. The staff was very friendly....

A small, quiet hotel just north of downtown, about 6 minutes from the SJO airport. It was super clean, quiet, and had a TV in the room. It was a solid 50% cheaper than the hotels two blocks closer to the airport and MUCH more "vacation" than the hostels around. Has a nice clean pool as well. I booked in...
