Pros: We needed a room close to the airport as my flight was at 1:45am. The gate keeper came to our room to be sure we were up so he could open the gate for us to let is out and the. Of course had to let my boyfriend back in after he dropped me off. That was very nice of him to check on us so I didn't miss my flight it was a shorty
Cons: All was fine. It was a short stay for me
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very peaceful place(8 units) near the airport and away from the hustle bustle of the fast moving city. A quiet sanctuary and the pictures are exactly how it looks. Karem who speaks english very well and her husband give it that extra effort of hospitality. Perfect place to return to!
Cons: Only thing maybe more towels.

Excellent 9.0
Pros: I loved the late check in options, available shuttles to the airport, distance from rental cars, staff, breakfast, fast internet. Great experience, clean rooms with no parfumated/scented linen was fantastic ( it is so hard to find these days) water, coffee, tea available day or night.
Cons: The only thing I can comment on was the outside noise( street, wind and airplanes) on our second stay at 4th floor vs staying on 2nd floor which was fantastic to catch up on some sleep and rest so I think with requesting lower levels in the future will be best for us!
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Lots of very comfortable details
Cons: Breakfast ok but not great. Not many healthy options
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location was perfect for us. The staff was extremely friendly and prompt and their English was excellent.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: We love staying at the Hampton in San Jose. It's real close to the Airport and the service we received is above expectations. They answered all our questions we had . I would recommend this place over and over again. See you again next year.
Excellent 10.0
Cons: It was difficult to find this property. it's right behind a Holiday Inn but from the road you could only see the Holiday Inn sign. The area is very congested, and our Uber driver circled two times before pulling over and asking a passing pedestrian where the Hampton Inn was. It would be helpful if Hampton could have a sign out on the Main Street pointing to where the hotel is

Excellent 8.0

Pros: Shuttle made it convenient to head to the airport. Also appreciated that we could exchange US dollars for CR colones at the front desk.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The breakfast was adequate and met our needs for a brief overnight stay near to San Jose Costa Rica airport. Plenty of fresh fruit which was great. Some cooked items and pastries ran out and there was a bit of delay in replenishing supplies, however we were not in such a hurry that we couldn't wait. Staff were great & quick to clear and clean tables.

Excellent 8.0
Pros: The front desk staff was amazing! They set up travel to dine at a local restaurant and also provided a grab bag for breakfast because we had to leave for the airport before their kitchen opened. Also, their shuttle runs every half hour unlike other hotels
Cons: The hotel is close to the airport which we requested but the aircraft noise was constant through the night.
Excellent 8.8
Pros: The staff are very friendly and welcoming.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The best part of staying here are the staff: professional and very helpful. The pool is exceptionally well-maintained and the rooms are good. The proximity to the airport and the free transfer bus made this place a winner for me. The offerings at breakfast were good.
Cons: I accept that being an “Express” hotel means the level of some facilities will be lower than a normal hotel, but eating breakfast with disposable cutlery and plates was a disappointing experience given that it probably was unnecessarily frugal, and detracted from the otherwise satisfying experience.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Staff were very friendly, location and also the facilities
Cons: NA
Excellent 8.0
Cons: many rooms are on the ground floor. they did move me when I requested it but I would not be comfortable staying on the ground floor in this area.

Good 7.7
Pros: Perfect hotel for the money. We had three rooms, all with two queen beds for only $92 per room. The staff was exceptionally friendly, the pool and gardens are nice, and the restaurant was one of the best meals throughout our trip. Airport shuttle was on time even with our 3:30am pickup.
Cons: The shower has soap/shampoo and conditioner (I think) attached to the wall. I'll probably avoid the "conditioner" if I stay again.

Pros: This no frills hotel had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Perfect place to stay after flying in late to San Jose. Secure and comfortable for our family of 3. The owner walked us to our car and made sure we got out safely onto the busy road.
Cons: There weren’t any problems but the accommodations are modest by US standards.

Pros: Carlos who manages the front desk was very helpful and welcoming. He made sure we had taxis for arrival and departure. He was very courteous. Would stay there again when I need a hotel close the airport
Cons: The staff Carlos at the front desk and the lovely lady who made us breakfast
Excellent 9.0
Pros: This was the cutest little hotel and the staff was absolutely fantastic, so fun and friendly to be around in the little restaurant/bar area. My room was exceptionally clean and the bed and linens made for a fantastic sleep. Everything worked perfectly, Didn't get to use the pool or explore the area due to heavy rains but it was still a great stay. I would definitely go back and recommend this place for the overall value. An added bonus was that the wake up call and the free shuttle were 100% punctual.......right down to the minute, which was a nice surprise as this often hasn't happened in my travels at other hotels. The driver even made me a coffee at 3:30 a.m. Great little hotel and will return again!!
Good 6.3
Pros: Friendly people - especially the restaurant man.
Cons: My particular room was Noisy room (#3) - the “window” was to the corridor where people walk past and on this particular night there was someone making ghastly noises (like they were spitting) until midnight! there was an automatic air spray dispenser in the bathroom that was nauseating (I managed to turn it off) and I wasn’t convinced my sheets were clean as I inspected them and found a hair under the pillow (only a single hair).
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The Berlor is ideal as a base to arrive at the airport, the car rental company Adobe Car Rental is almost next door and is situated about five minutes from the airport. Staff are very helpful and friendly, almost all spoke English, and helped us enormously. Meals are available and the breakfast is superb! Very comfy bed, aircon, private bathroom, all A1. Fully recommended.
Cons: not a lot really!

Pros: Location is close to the airport Good wifi Friendly staff

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Save your money on the big chains hotels, do yourself a favor, and stay here. Only a 5 minute drive from the airport with a free shuttle and free breakfast, it's hard to imagine any airport hotel offering a better value. The rooms and beds are very comfortable, and AC is not necessary (mid 60's fahrenheit while you're sleeping). The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. English speaking as well (if that's s concern for you). There is a mall 5-10 minutes walk away that offers any type of cuisine you can imagine. Its a very modern mall, as good or better than what you would find the US or Europe. Cards are accepted for payment (with no extra fee). I would not hesitate to stay here again if I need another hotel near SJO in the future!
Cons: Nothing- for the price, this place exceeded my expectations
Excellent 8.0
Pros: Price and attitude!
Cons: Bfast little poor, but cant expect more for the price.
Good 7.0
Pros: Close to the the airport, clean rooms. Nice place that is great for one night if you are going to/from the airport. Breakfast was served on the balcony outside the room - cozy!
Cons: We had booked free airport transfer by the hotel on arrival. But our plane was late so no one turned up and we did not get any message from them. A person at the airport "helped" us to call the hotel (?) and we were adviced to take one of the red taxis, which are supposed to be safe - but the person helping us cheated us so it turned out we paid like twenty times too much for the taxi (being tired and not being familiar with the currency or the prices). It would be great if it was possible to buy something to eat and water even when arriving late.
Excellent 9.0
Pros: Arrived after 11 pm but shuttle still came and picked myself and some other travellers up to transport to the hotel. Driver was extremely polite and professional. He also had to check me in as staff was gone for the night. He was very efficient and friendly. He arrived bright and early at 520 am the following morning to shuttle myself and another guest back to the airport for our next flights, still with a smile on his face:). The room was what I expected for the price. Great place to put your head down if you just need a few hours sleep and not looking for any frills.
Cons: My only complaint about the place was lack of hot water in the morning.
Good 7.0
Pros: Good location near the airport. It has transfer to and from the airport You don't hear the highway and the neighborhood is quite calm. If you have rented a car the companies comes to the hotel at morning. The bed was huge (wider than longer!!!)
Good 7.5
Pros: Convenient location and with shuttle to the airport, the rooms were ok for an overnight stay before an early flight the next day
Excellent 8.8
Pros: Location was awesome. Super clean and spacious.
Good 7.1
Pros: The staff tried quite hard to be attentive and responsive. The location near the main airport is excellent, as is the transport to and from.
Cons: The rooms are subpar Motel 6 kind of rooms. Functional, but little more. The breakfast is also uninspired, but functional.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location near the airport was the main reason I chose this place. Also, the free shuttle to and from the airport (tip appreciated). The bonus was having a mall close by with various restaurants and food court to choose from.
Cons: It was easy to hear other people in their rooms, but they did settle down. Walking to the mall, you really have to pay attention to the uneven sidewalks and every now and then, a big hole in the sidewalk appears. Since my flight was so early, I didn’t have breakfast. So I cannot comment on that.
Good 6.2
Pros: Close to the airport, provided free transportation
Cons: It was a little dirty.
Excellent 8.5
Pros: Just a great place to stay close to the airport. If your driving it just a left off the main road and turn left and its down on the corner or to the end and left and left then down on the corner
Excellent 9.0
Pros: The location of the hotel is perfect, very close to the airport. They have a shuttle to the airport or cover taxi if arrival is after 11 pm. We stayed there just for one night, since our flight arrived after midnight. In fact the flight was delayed and we arrived at about 3 am. We were met at the hotel and taken to the room right away. It was very easy to communicate, staff was very helpful and very friendly. The room is simple, but had all we needed. Breakfast (hot) was served at the table right by the door, which was a nice touch. Since we came so late, the hostess was very kind and woke us up for breakfast one hour after it ended. They let us leave our luggage for additional hour after check out.
Cons: The only thing is that there was no AC, but there was a ceiling fan with variable speed and not too loud.

Excellent 8.2
Pros: Convenient location for being in/out the SJO airport. Free transfer that takes 10-15 minutes. The hotel is rather basic, but provides all what a budget traveler needs. There is even a small swimming pool. Good beds, small but nice lobby, good breakfast, clean and well-cared breakfast area. With a very competitive rate (breakfast included), free airport transfer, helpful English/Spanish speaking staff, and several nearby restaurants, it is a good choice for one-night stay for those arriving or departing at San Jose Santamaria airport.
Cons: The rooms are rather dated, yet they are sufficiently clean.
Good 6.0
Pros: Staff was willing to help with the wet clothes by use of the dryer. Pool is nice. It's a basic hotel which is great for that night after you arrive/ before you leave - located near restaurants and parks
Cons: Beds were very squeaky and the air conditioner unit leaked water all over our clothes.

Good 7.9

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Very good location and really nice staff.
Good 7.0
Pros: The place is really well located. Is close to several restaurants in Alajuela. The rooms were clean and pretty. The facilities are very good, and it has a pretty garden. Breakfast was nice too.
Cons: The staff is rather serious. Whenever we would ask a question we would feel as if we were bothering them. If they could improve their customer service I believe they would overall improve very much the experience.
Excellent 10.0
Pros: Most comfy bed ever. Staff super attentive and helpful (not in a annoying way). Very clean. Most modern bathroom I experienced in Costa Rica as a low-budget traveler.
Excellent 8.0
Pros: The location was good. The area was safe.
Cons: There was another hotel next door with noisy guests in the courtyard.

Excellent 10.0
Pros: Really beautiful space easy to get to from the airport and the owner Henry was super nice and friendly!
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Very convenient for the hotel The staff were incredibly friendly The decor was quirky and the bed was comfortable
Cons: It is loud like people say but that’s what you have to put up with for being so close to the airport. Planes didn’t start flying over until the morning so it didn’t affect my sleep.
Good 7.5
Pros: Very nice staff
Cons: As It is near the airport and the highway the hotel is very noisy. On the other hand it is ideal if you only stay one night before leaving
Mediocre 3.0
Pros: Close to the airport
Cons: No AC, outdated decor, unclean, no hot water, noisy (2 highways either side and many planes taking off overhead)
Poor 1.0
Pros: The manager and staff where very kind, the hotel seems much better in pics thai it really was, but was clean and in a good location.
Cons: The owner was a very nasty person, my car has some electrical problem, and he ask me to leave the parking lot and take my car any way out of there even when there was not any other car or guest in the hotel because it was 1pm and my check out was at 11:30am (I´d already did it). His manner was very rude.
Excellent 9.6
Pros: The Host was extremly friendly and gave us good tips. We enjoyed his accompany.
Excellent 9.2
Pros: Location makes for a 5 min taxi ride to airport. Staff are friendly. Decor is woodsy and earthy. They acknowledged the loudness of the road and airport traffic and provided high quality earplugs. The lady prepping breakfast was helpful in putting out a few items early for me and getting me a cab for an early flight.
Cons: Lots of traffic on that road made for an expensive ride getting there from the part of town where my arrival bus station was located. Definitely use Uber not taxi. Not a lot of food choices on that road.
Okay 5.0
Pros: The staff was very friendly and nice. Nice patio. Easy parking. Close to the airport.
Cons: The noise that we can not tolerate. The location of the hotel was near the road with tracks moving all night. Very-very noisy. We were provided with ear plugs by the staff. So, they know, that it's hard to sleep in that environment. The room was slightly bigger than the bed. Everything that you need but very tiny.
