Good location to head off on excursions

This is a great hotel because it is close to the airport and is easy to set off on excursions from here, but don't spend your vacation here, it is right next to the highway (though you don't really hear it from the hotel). The staff is very helpful.

One Night at the San Jose Country Inn

Couple from U.S. traveling with two adult children for Christmas Week stay in Costa Rica. Eleven p.m. arrival and staff were ready for us and we received excellent service. Rooms are not all in a single building which could be a problem if it had been raining.

An oasis amongst the city

Lots of room in the suites. Dining area was pleasing and relaxing. We stayed only one night as it was close to the airport for our departure. A nice way to end our trip to Costa Rica. Thank you!

great location for price

We only had the evening to spend and had an early flight out the next day so relaxed in the evening. We were able to use the shuttle to/from the airport as we booked ahead but others were not, if not booked ahead of time; that should be offered to everyone without booking as part of the included price. It would have been nice to have information as to getting breakfast early since we had to leave at 430am to catch a 730am flight-some things that could be left out, like coffee, juice, bread for toast, fruit, cream cheese etc to eat or to go. That was also a perk in the price so they should try to accomodate those of us leaving early. Thank you, R & A
