Best affordable hotel/hostel option for small family downtow

Hello,

We will be taking a bus to Caribe terminal from Puerto VIejo with a 2 year old. WE were thinking of then taking a bus to Alajuela to stay in center for a short commute to early morning departure at SJO. We would take a taxi, but most likely will not find one with a carseat, hence, why we are bussing it. I am looking at hotel Melrost, Casa Tago, and Mi Tierra. Anything I am missing. Something in the $40-$70 range with breakfast (at 6am or to go!), clean, and where we have options of things to do, or grass to play in for our baby.

Thank you!

Hotel Aeropuerto...they will give you a FREE shuttle to SJO...if you get to SJO by bus...call tehm up and they will pick you up at SJO and drive you next back to SJO...even a pool for the kid to play!

Adventure Inn is another mid priced option alongside the Pan American Highway (like Hotel Aeropuerto) with free shuttle to and from SJO. Have used both and they're basic but clean and safe. There's not much around them so you'll want to bring your own food if you don't want to eat in their mediocre and pricy restaurant.

Downtown Alajuela Mi Tierra is nice with a small pool and easy walking distance to the park and several restaurants.
