good easy hotel for th airport

Easy hotel for the airport, but wouldn't want to vacation here. Get out of San Jose as soon as you can, much more beauty to see. Clean rooms, restaurants on the premise and nice pool. Fine for families

Purpose of my trip was for Medical reasons. The hotel rooms have been nicely renovated from my previous stay.Free international call,high speed wireless internet and free shuttle and breakfast make this a compelling choice.

Accurate Title

It was a very clean and professional American style Hotel.Its one of the best in San Jose and convenient to the airport. The negative is the included breakfast consists of one egg and one piece of toast. For this price, a full breakfast with juice should be included. Lastly, I have friends from Costa Rica and they were not allowed at the hotel, they were accused of being prostitutes! Humorous and extremely upsetting at the the same time.

My review of Best Western Irazu Hotel & Casino

The Best Western Erazu was a good place to stay.The beds were hard but seemed to work OK.The pool is very cold.The people at the hotel were great.$3.00 foe safety box was a bit much.Internet came and went.Denny's was kind of expensive.Cheaper places down the street to eat.
