Where to spend last night in CS?

Staying in San Jose for 2 nights on the way in. Looking for a reasonable, clean, convenient to San Jose airport, hotel for our last afternoon/night in CS. Don't want to stay in San Jose again. But also don't want to stay in a place too isolated. Our budget is around $100.00 (tax included). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I really like the Buena Vista Hotel in Alajuela. Located around 15 minutes drive from the airport, but in a nice mountain setting with views over the city.

We stayed at the Barcelo Palacio and got a standard room with breakfast for 2 for $78. This was a great deal and have no idea if they are still offering it. It's a very nice hotel and the breakfast was unbelievable! It was a huge spread!

It depends on whether you want to stay in the city of Alajuela (this is where the airport is located) or in the surrounding area. One hotel I like near the center of town is Hotel Los Volcanes, have stayed there a number of times. Otherwise, Orquideas Inn, Pura Vida or Hotel Buena Vista as someone else said. A newish hotel - Trapp Family - is near the airport and about $95 but I haven't been there yet

Any of these is less than 20 minutes from the airport.

we spent our last night in CR near the airport at the Hampton Inn. the beds were awesome and it was a little piece of America after a long trip abroad. the breakfast was awesome and there's a shuttle to the airport so no cab needed. you can also pay your exit tax in the lobby so as to avoid the line at the airport. there are a few restaurants in walking distance which is also a plus.

We stayed at Hotel La Rosa de America. Close to the airport, restuarants nearby for lunch/dinner, clean, nice pool, good breakfast included. Plus it's close to Zoo Ave, a nice place to spend your last afternoon!
