We stayed at 4 different hotels during our 9 nights in Costa Rica. They were all in the $60-$90 range. Hotel Robledal was the best one. The location is convenient to San Jose airport. We stayed 2 nights (27-28th May) and we were very pleased.
First, the property: it is very nice, spacious and kept immaculate.
Second, the room: we stayed in room 12, it was spacious and they were the best beds we had during out stay in Costa Rica.
Third, the breakfast: best Costa Rican breakfast we had during out trip; fruit, bread, coffee, juice, mild. Gallo Pinto was excellent and very tasty.
Fourth, the staff: place is run by the owners (sorry, names escape me) and their 2 sons. The go way out to make you feel welcome.
Fifth, location: great if you want to explore Volcan Poas area, including La Paz waterfalls, Zoo Ave and Mariposario. And close to the airport.
Property is located on Hwy 124 just past the town of El Roble, excellent public transportation to Alajuela and close to the airport (I think they provide transportation, I did not use it since I had a rental car). The street in front of the property has a lot of traffic, but that's Costa Rica.
For us it was great because we wanted to see the surrounding towns. Just a few miles away is the new Hwy 27 that leads to the coast, so you about an hour from the Pacific Ocean.
Only problem, it was the only hotel we stayed in Costa Rica that did not have a small fridge in the room, it would have been nice to have one, but they allowed to put our stuff in the main fridge in the kitchen area.
Overall, the best hotel experience we had in Costa Rica.
