Recent guest reviews

No tefrigerator in the room, bed very hard. Staff was great even set up to go brrakfast because we had. Dry early flight

This American style hotel is about as close to the airport as you can get - perfect if you have an early flight. The hotel provides a shuttle to the airport. If you have a really early flight they will also provide you with breakfast to go. Pros: comfortable beds, great location, clean, very friendly staff, several restaurants close by. Cons: chilly pool

Easy Check In. Comfortable beds. Good breakfast. Breakfast to go available at 3:30 am ! Efficient shuttle service to the airport. Nice place to stay if you have flight to catch next day.

Terrific service, great facilities, pool, work out room, big breakfast buffet.

Hotel was very clean and modern. Our room was very nice. Front desk staff were very fast, friendly and efficient. Shuttle driver was also great. I would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding service from the staff. Hotel premises are nice.

Not quite as nice as the Hampton Inn next door, but still a decent, clean hotel. Great proximity to SJO so you don't get stuck in horrible San jose traffic on the way to the airport.

arrived to c.r. late and tired after long flight. hotel a mile from airport, clean, fast check in, nice warm pool, gym w just enough equipment. airplanes landing so close by could be annoying but for just 1 night it was perfect

I recently traveled to San Jose, the next day leaving for La Fortuna...a few hours later realized I had left over $1600 in the room safe. When I called, Mauricio had told me they found the money (exactly what I had left) and I was able to return and pick it up!!! 10 STAR STAFF...honest, welcoming, and extremely friendly...I highly recommend this Hotel to Anyone traveling to San Jose Costa Rica!!! Tremendous!!!

Simple- if you want an American hotel at the start or end of your trip- this is it. Very easy

Awesome always stay there. Everyone who works there is very nice

Location, location, location! This hotel is down the street from the airport. They offer free shuttle service to and from the airport. The complementary breakfast exceeded our expectations. They also offer tours and help with the booking process.

Need to let people know pets are not welcome ok to stay and catch a flight

The staff were really helpful and saved us money byexplaining all of the benefits of staying there. We stayed less than tweleve hours, but it was worth it.

the breakfast was very carb heavy, but the room was clean, and the staff were very efficient and professional. the location is very convenient to the airport. I did have a heavy wooden valance fall off the window and bruise my arm but the staff were very quick to react and the next morning were checking the valances in all the rooms to be sure no more were loose

We stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Express...it was very comfortable, the staff was great and it was very convenient to the casino, restaurants and the airport. Will stay there again...if we get the chance

Great hotel for the location in regards to the airport. Not much facilities facilities such as restaurants, shops.

Thanks a lot for the great service.. we had a great time@

The room was very comfortable for the night before flying home. The lobby staff spoke good English and helped us take care of the exit visa with no problem. Breakfast to go in the morning was nice touch for an early departure. Shuttle was easy, on time, and quick (5-10 minutes from door to gate)

The location is very good, close to the airport. Rooms are clean. Shuttle service to airport does help.

Dear melba, thank you for posting your comments about your stay at our hotel. Nothing is more important to us than our guests' total comfort, satisfaction and well being, so we do everything we can to ensure that their stay is always a very pleasant and comfortable experience. e are truly sorry about the inconvenience you experienced with the bed and for not having a mini fridge in the rooms so please accept our most sincere apologies. We assure you that if you had let our front desk staff know about the bed and that you needed a mini fridge, they would have either changed the mattress of the bed, or changed you to another room with a bed more of your liking. They would have also sent you a mini fridge to your room is you had let them know that you really did needed one because as we mentioned before, our entire staff are willing to go above and beyond for our guests. It was a pleasure being at your service. Thank you for staying with us, we hope to see you back very soon. Warmest regards. Marjorie Espinoza. Guest Relations Manager.
