We chose to stay at this hotel due to it's proximity to the airport and its reasonable price. We arrived at SJO in the evening, picked up our rental car and found the hotel with ease. Easy 5 minute drive from the airport and free parking.
My fiance's dad flew in with us last minute (we were getting married later on in the month) and needed a hotel- the gentleman at the reception took the time to find him a room at another hotel as our hotel was fully booked. My father-in-law LOVED the hotel he found for him :-)
Breakfast was included in the price and was prepared by the same gentleman that checked us in. It consisted of coffee, juice, pancakes, egg and toast. Good breakfast.
I really wish I could remember the front desk guys name because he was great! He spent at least 20-30 minutes with us the morning we were leaving (no longer paying guests) helping us with directions to the bus terminal (to drop off father-in-law who was going elsewhere before our wedding), giving advice on where he should travel & also helping my fiance and I with directions to get out of San Jose.
The rooms were by no means fancy and you wouldn't want to "hang out" in the room, but for the price & included breakfast I would review the room as excellent. There was a TV and warm shower. Bed was comfortable as well. I can't remember whether I wore earplugs or not, but it is right on the street. I did not have any problems getting a good nights rest. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a 1 night stay due to its proximity to the airport & superior service by the man at the reception counter.
