Every time I get a chance to stay in San Jose I just stay at the Sleep Inn. I have tried several other places, but nothing comes close and most other places are either more expensive or you get what you pay for if you go cheap. The Sleep Inn is located in a perfect spot, safe, well protected, has two casinos (One smokeless and one regular), excellent rooms, excellent room service and just the best overall for the price. It's not exactly cheap to stay there, but comparable with the going rate for decent hotels in the area. When I have the funds, I stay there...

San Jose is not a pretty town, and the Sleep Inn is no exception. It has a small casino on premises, and a definite feel that not everyone in the hotel is a reregistered guest. Not a pay by the hour place, but not a family feel either. The rooms are clean and reasonably maintained though. The breakfast is average but not particularly disappointing. The front desk service is quite good.

The wireless internet only works in the lobby and the three computers they provide are often in use for long periods. Facebook huh!

If you are transiting through San Jose, the Hotel Presidente and Hotel Balmoral are close by and probably a little nicer (we also stayed at Presidente and dined at Balmoral). But unless there are specific San Jose sites or restaurants you want to visit, consider staying a little out of the actual downtown area. The Crowne Plaza is a little nicer and still close to downtown, or there are nicer hotels between downtown and the airport, eg Holiday Inn Express for a budget place, or the Intercontinental for 5 star.

Good afternoon,

Our hotel is a really nice place to stay, we have the newest building in Downtown San José and a big list of satisfied customers who stay with us once and again because of the kindly service we offer, for the next days we´ll be working in set up the wi fi internet connection in all the hotel rooms, in order to improve the service for all our customers.

We have two casinos, one casino its across the parking lot, so the people who visit the casino and not staying at the hotel have no access to the hotel lobby or rooms, also we have a no smoking casino inside the hotel, with a kindly and friendly atmosphere exclusively for the hotel customers.

Next time you visit San José please give us the opportunity to show you the excellent service we are offering, and also the excellent option in food & beverages we have at the Magnolia Restaurant, thank you for your comments, give us the chance to make the things better for everyone.

This is, in fact, a very good hotel. It is part of the U.S. based "Choice Hotels" group and is maintained to their standards. It's not perfect, but then what hotel is? The rooms are well maintained and if there is ever a problem, the maintenance staff will, no doubt, fix it promptly. Shampoo, conditioner and body lotion are supplied daily as are plenty of fluffy white towels.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and like the fact that I can always count on a certain international standard of cleanliness and comfort when staying there. The water pressure is always good and hot water comes from the shower quickly any time of day or night.

There is an ice machine on the first floor and a washer and dryer are provided for guests to use on the second floor and cost $1.00 each. U.S. quarters needed to operate the machines (4 for each one) are provided at the front desk and a package of washing powder will be given to you. A small gym is located on the ground floor.

A free breakfast buffet is provided daily to guests. It consists of scrambled eggs, some kind of breakfast meat and of course pinto the national dish (rice and beans). There is always fresh fruit, cereal and yogurt, toast, juice and all the good Costa Rican coffee you can drink. While it can get monotonous if staying several days, it nevertheless does meet a basic daily requirement at no extra charge. It would be nice if they had a kiosk where eggs were made to order, but this hotel has always operated with the buffet since I have been staying there.

There are 3 computers for guest use located in the lobby. One drawback of the hotel is that they do not offer wi-fi in the guest rooms which seems inexcusable for a quality hotel in the 21st century! An ethernet cable can be rented for $7.00 per day if internet use is required in the room.

A free airport shuttle bus is provided for hotel guests

The location is very secure inside a fenced compound in downtown San Jose. Security personnel are always vigilant 24 hours a day. The hotel has a small casino, but if you want to go over to the much larger Colonial Casino you can do so without having one drop of rain hit you as an awning covers the walkway between the two buildings. The Colonial Casino is a good place to play craps or a card game, but be advised it is EXTREMELY smoky. It seems as if everyone in the place is puffing a cigarette. The hotel's own small casino is smoke free!

Another thing to consider is that the hotel is in very close proximity to the Hotel del Rey which hosts yet another casino, plus the notorious Blue Marlin bar and perhaps hundreds of working girls. So it is not unusual to see a hotel guest taking a girl from the del Rey to his room at the Sleep Inn. The hotel, while not banning the practice which would be shooting themselves in the foot, tries to limit the practice by imposing a $35.00 guest fee to the already pricy room fee. C'est la vie!

All in all I would rate this a very good hotel with a courteous English speaking front desk staff who are knowledgeable and eager to assist with anything you may have need of. I will not hesitate to book this hotel again!

This hotel is listed as a two start and it out performed any three star I have ever been in. The rooms were great, the location is great and the staff is the best.
The internet was only available in the lobby, but they had three workstations and a printer to use in the business center.

We were picked up as arrainged by the provided courtesy shuttle from the airport. Every point of our stay was great. They were accomodating and friendly. Onsite currency exchange, Quiet room, helpful staff, great breakfast. We loved it and would return in a heartbeat. Having stayed in 2 other places while in CR, this place was Primo! The beds are firm, but clean and fresh. Easy walking distance from most of the downtown destinations, and easy taxi or bus to other locations.

Room Tip: Use choice privileges points or choice hotel bkg.
