Standard hotel, good value

The hotel was clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy, but very good value. It's not walking distance to anything, but then most hotels are not. It's convenient, internet works great and the rooms are fine. Good value for money.

Perfect place to stay

We stayed here for one night prior to flying home the following day. Everything was great. The room was huge, 2 rooms as well as 2 full bathrooms. Great for a family. The front desk staff told us the best place to go to see the city and they arranged to have us taken downtown, ($20) as well as picking us up when we were done for the night. This made everything easy and stres free. The free shuttle to the airport was great. Really couldn't ask for anything better, and for the price, it was amazing.

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!
