“Simple but adequate”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

It was $40 a night for a double with a private bath, so we didn't expect much. It was clean & comfortable, & most of the time the fan was adequate, in spite of the heat & humidity. Most of the people (notably the owners) were very friendly & helpful. We also felt safe here.

I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend in order to be close to the airport. Taxi only cost us 6 bucks, and was a short drive away! Very convenient location if your looking for a short stay. Breakfast was delcious and made on the spot. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Rooms however were very hot, the fan did not seem to work very well. We woke up in the morning and found a cocroach on the floor. Washrooms should be maintained a bit more. Many places to each around!

we stayed here for three nights and it was definetly worth the price! the people were really friendly even though they barely spoke english. It was very loud in the mornings because during that time costa rica was playing in the world cup so you could imagine what was going on right outside :)! Beds were kind of hard and it was very hot in the room but it was a good stay :)

We booked this hotel for one night as we had an early flight the next morning. Staff was unbelievable friendly and very helpful!! The rooms are nice and clean, 24 hour reception. Absolutely worth the money for what you get, I think. Distance to Airport; 5 minutes by Taxi.

The staff is very friendly and professional. The room with bathroom was easy, small, but tidy and clean, breakfast included. The price is absolutely fair. I would definitely stay again in this hotel for a future 1night stay.

Cala Inn is a small hostel in Alajuela, only few min by car from the San Jose Airport. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was basic but clean and with own bathroom. Fast, free Wifi access was ofered. The breakfast was also included in our rate but we didn't have time to eat because of the early morning flight from San Jose. Overall good and cheap option for transit night near the airport.
