Lovely room. Huge bed. Clean. Spacious. Helpful staff. Secure. Great Wifi. Hard to fault tho obviously this is American style and for comfort and convenience, not a Costa Rica experience.

We stayed here the night before our early morning flight to return home after our 3 wk visit to CR and we couldnt be happier with our stay.

We booked via expedia and received exactly what we booked - King size studio Room #210. The room was very clean, very comfortable. It had a flat screen tv w many channels in english, a comfy recliner chair, desk , wifi worked.everywhere, etc. They have the little things right down to disinfecting the remote to 24 hr complimentary tea/cofee/hot choc in the lobby. we left early so we couldnt take advantage of the free breakfast but they had a to go breakfast bag w water, special k bar, muffin & an apple. a nice touch.

Bathroom was impecably clean, hot water shower/tub, nice, fluffy towels and bathroom amenities that were needed at the end of a trip (shampoo, body wash, qtips, etc).

The bed was heavenly with soft, clean linens. choice of pillows and a comfy duvet. Very nice sleep.

The only cons were the A/C was a tad noisy even on low but we turned it off as it wasnt that hot in the room and used the fan only. Also, the hotel was having a problem with the room keys accessing the room, business center and pool access so we had to wait in line at the front desk several times to gain entry to these areas but the front desk staff were very apologetic and were quick to help us out.

Overall, we very much enjoyed out stay and will definitely stay again on our future trips to CR & would recommend to others. As I mentioned earlier, they have the little things right. Great airport hotel! Oh and they have free shuttle to and from the airport, very convenient.

Reliability is important when travelling on business and no surprises. This Hampton property is well located, literally seconds from the airport terminal. On you arrival at SJO, look for the Hampton Inn rep at the curb outside arrivals and he will radio the van.
Standard roomy accommodations and facilities that you would expect, and a good breakfast buffet which included scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon, and the local rice/bean/tortilla favorites...and fantastic Britt coffee.

Car rental facilties are just across the street, as is a Denny's and chicken restaurant. Also across the road is the Fiesta Casino which has slots and a pretty good sports bar. An 8oz burger with all the trimmings and 2 of the excellent Imperial beers at happy hour cost less tha $USD15 with the tip.

Oh, and the wi-fi works great too!

For a "Gringo" it is wonderful to return from the Costa Rican jungle to this luxe hotel and to enjoy a clean, warm shower, a clean and soft bed, and a breakfast buffet that encompasses a LOT more than just rice and beans!! Friendly staff, good shuttle service.

We stayed here on the last night of our Costa Rican trip, due to an early morning flight and long drive from the other hotel. The hotel felt like every other Hampton Inn - convenient and a little lacking in character.

Breakfast in the morning was decent, an interesting mix between Costa Rican favorites like Gallo de Pinto and American standbys like waffles.

The desk staff were helpful. The gift shop is overpriced.

The shuttle was quick and efficient (15 mins total), but does make a stop at the Holiday Inn also.

The bathtub was a little dirty.

The end.

Great hotel for before or after a flight into San Jose Airport. Walking distance to several car rental places. Very friendly staff and clean basic rooms. Convenient shuttle service from airport to hotel. Definitely eat at the chicken restaurant that the hotel recommends. Worth it and short walk across parking lot. The hearty breakfast was a plus.

This place is handy to the airport........no other reason to stay in this area. It was clean and we appreciated the coffee bar and buffet breakfast. The front desk clerks were helpful and pleasant. We stayed one night after arriving in the early evening from the USA and it served our purposes perfectly, although next time - knowing now what I didn't know then - I'd opt for the drive into San Jose and stay there at a hotel that offers more services.
