Fine room for the price. The airport shuttle is not included in the cost of the room and I had to pay $15.00 for that but it was probably close to the same cost as a taxi. But the location is good and walking distance to the mall and several restaurants.

We choose to stay here the night before our flight, because of the vicinity to the airport. In that respect it is ideal. Also it is located next to a mall with several restaurants, which comes in handy. The hotel restaurant only serves a basic breakfast in an hospital atmosphere. The whole hotel could do with a more personal touch,...

hotel good, but only one clerk handling all of the student soccer players and my reservation. Although she was terrific we couldn't get into our room more than two hours after 3:00 pm. Breakfast good and shuttle was excellent

Very satisfactory experience. We needed a hotel for the final night of our vacation that is we liked your hotel because it was close to the airport and as such we avoid the congestion at the bridge that we would have to deal with if we stayed in San Jose. Your hotel provided all the convenience and the value that...

The room was nice size with pleasant staff. My only complaint is that is a little further from SJO airport than I thought it was. Breakfast was solid with an assortment of fruit for my vegan daughter and good coffee selection.

Perfect for the night before flying back home. Close to MacDonalds for a late night snack. The only problem we had was finding the place at night. We ran into a couple of traffic jams at 9pm at night. The turnoff from the highway was hard to see. The hotel arranged taxi service to the airport at 6am.
