“Saved my life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2010

When my daughter and I found ourselves stranded at the American Embassy without money, passports, credit cards, or IDs, the Hampton Inn allowed us to stay, provided us with transportation, and gave us a lot of TLC. Susan at the desk was especially kind and helpful. One of the drivers not only drove us to the embassy the following day, but stayed there for over an hour while our passports were made, then drove us to the airport. Another bonus was the free international calling. Although a bit pricey compared with other hotels you can stay in near San Jose, I would highly recommend the Hampton. Thank you!

100% awesome! Staff was great! We got a free drink to the casino! And $5 at the slot machines. We ended up winning $70. It was clean, quiet, and comfy. The breakfast was delicious! I hated to part with $150 but it was well worth it!

We were driving about 5 hours from Flamingo Beach and wanted a place to stay near the airport for our flight out the next day. The Hampton Inn & Suites was perfect. Not only is it a very consistent, comfortable place to stay, it is very close to the SJO airport and has a free shuttle that runs to the airport every 15 minutes. As always, Hampton Inn provided a clean comfortable room with everything you would expect if you were in the US. Plus the breakfast very good with local fruits and juices and a packaged pineapple jam that was awesome. I wish they had that in the US instead of strawberry. If you are renting a car, it would be convenient to rent from one of the rental agencies that are accross the parking lot from Hampton Inn. That way you don't have to get back out in the crazy traffic to return your car. Just call and ask the hotel who they recommend. I wish we had done this, but we rented from Hertz because that's who we use in the states. I was not very pleased with the service from Hertz in CR.

The staff at Hampton Inn was great. They helped us find a restaurant we wanted to eat at (Jalapenos) and provided maps of the area. We were able to use the business center to print our boarding passes. They also provide free calls to the US! We were very pleased with our stay here.

We arrived in Costa Rica hot and exhausted and not particularly looking forward to a night in an "airport hotel". But we were pleasantly surprised. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, the beds were extremely comfortable, the sheets stayed tucked in (a pet peeve of mine), and the complimentary breakfast was real food, not cardboard pastries. Although this hotel is located very close to the airport, it must be well insulated, because we did not hear any airport noise at all. I wouldn't recommend this place as a base for spending time in San Jose, as it is about a 20 minute taxi ride into the city, but it is the perfect place to stay after a late arrival, or before an early flight out.

Arriving late at night this hotel was a welcome relief for two travelers. A relaxing night sleep before hitting the road for two weeks. Prices are at Stateside levels but worth it to begin a vacation in Costa Rica. Note: the hotel is less than a mile from the terminal and has a free shuttle (hassle free). Pura Vida!!!

This hotel was a great choice for our last night in Costa Rica. We flew out of San Jose the next morning and they provided a free shuttle. It took less than 5 minutes to get to the airport. Breakfast was very good and very plentiful. Bed was fantastic - much needed great nights sleep after an exhausting week of travel and hiking! I would definitely recommend this for a first or last night stay in Costa Rica. It is Americanized but we got our Tico culture during the remainder of our trip. It was nice to have waffles and Frosted Flakes for breakfast after a week of beans and rice for breakfast every day!
Don't pay your departure tax here though. They charge about $10 more than at the airport and the lines at the airport were not that long.

We were very impressed with this hotel. It was clean and very comfortable. The room had a great bed, air conditioning and the room had all of the little comforts you would want. There is a free breakfast and if you are leaving earlier than when it starts they will have a bagged breakfast for you. There is also a free shuttle to the airport and they were helpful in getting our bags unpacked and to a porter at the airport. I would definately recommend this place.
