Holiday inn Express and Hampton Inn are both large, American-style airport hotels, very near the airport.

I would recommend staying at a Costa Rican style hotel for your last night. Hotel Aeropuerto would be great. Also look at Hotel Los Volcanes, Alegria B&B or Orquideas Inn. These three don't have a shuttle but will pay your taxi to the airport. Some others - Casa Antigua, Buena Vista or Hotel Pura Vida.

Check Adventure Inn , close to airport, they pay taxi both ways. Their website has so much info for travel, either do it yourself or they will arrange guides.

Orquideas grounds and restaurant are great, but their rooms are not. When I stayed they charged $12 per person for airport transfers. That may have changed. They are not close to the airport so you have to allow extra time to get to the airport especially if it is traffic time. I prefer Adventure Inn over Orquideas, but it is not close to the airport either. It isn't far, but again if it is traffic time you have to allow for that. I have still not found my ideal affordable place to stay over night in San Jose. . If you are going to be at the hotel for more then just sleeping I agree you may want to find a more Costa Rican style hotel, but if it is just for sleeping and convience then Mike gave good advice. If you want to go higher end the Marriott is very nice and very convient to the airport.
