Hotel close to SJO-1 night

My husband and I will be arriving into SJO at 10 PM at night on November 4, 2008. We will be leaving for Arenal early the next morning, probably via Interbus. Since we won't have much time to enjoy a hotel, we are looking for a place very close to the airport for under $100. Would be great if the hotel offered a free shuttle from SJO for when we arrive. Any suggestions? TY

You might want to look into staying in a town called Alejuela, which is much closer to the airport than San Jose, particularly since you are coming in late, just as we did. It's literally less than a 10 minute cab fare...probably less...seems like we got in the cab and were there before we could blink. Alejuela is also closer to the Arenal area, as well. We stayed at Hotel 1915, which would meet your criteria for under $100 and it was very nice..beatiful lobby and dining area.

Have fun!

If you want very basic and inexpensive, try Hotel Brilla Sol.


We stayed there last month because we had to catch an early flight from SJO. It's not in the greatest neighborhood, but you're not going to be out wandering around, so you'll be fine. The hotel itself felt very safe and secure, there is a restaurant on the premises, and they have a free shuttle for SJO.

At $60 a night, it can't be beat.

I have been reading about Trapp Family Inn, about a mile from the airport and right around $100.00 per night. They do provide free transport. I have posted here for more info - but nothing yet. Web site looks quite ok.
