3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nice building, excellent location with lots of restaurants around it but it’s extremely noisy, you can hear every single car because the hotel is next to a highway but not only the cars also every noise from other rooms.

Went on a business trip to Costa Rica and stayed in Holiday Inn Escazu, it´s well located you are a few steps from a modern mall and a few meters from Multiplaza Mall. The breakfasts is included and there are many choices. Rally recommend it

Nice nice place. Avoided long line at the front desk. Lot of business travelers. Got a great room at the end of the hallway. Nice and quiet at night. The breakfast is GREAT. Nice fresh fruit. Waiters nice enough to let me take black coffee to go every morning. Nice seating in the lobby. Did not check out the pool. The gym is so-so. Worth coming back here - great location. Next to a nice outdoor mall with good (expensive) restaurants. The cabs the hotel uses are expensive.

The hotel offers a great location as your are close to all the fun and food you can need! When enjoying some relaxing time on Escazu area this hotel offers great accommodations and service. Clean and comfortable site.

Good hotel in a nice area, but it is not in the town center of San Jose. It is in it's own little area, Escazu slightly nearer to the airport. The hotel room was spacious and very clean, and the hotel offered a small breakfast selection but everything was very nice. I was only there for 2 nights for work and the only downside was that the wifi was extremely unreliable. Luckily I was in San Jose for meetings because I would not of been able to work from there as the wifi dropped out all the time. I would consider staying here personally but not for work again because the lack of internet would be a problem.

My wife and I stayed in the Holiday Inn for five nights while I was convalescing. It is situated next door to the Cima Hospital and right in the middle of so many upscale restaurants and entertainment. The hotel serves a super breakfast and has a good restaurant, so convenient.

This hotel is very close to a motorway and you will hear that from your rooms. In addition, some rooms are close to a truck loading zone for a shop that has deliveries very early in the morning. You will also hear that from your rooms. Finally the walls are very thin, so you will also enjoy your neighbours coming and going. This aside, it is a nice place. Restaurent makes very good food and people are friendly. Wifi works good and room is quite ok.

We have stayed at this hotel several times. We have never had a problem. The rooms are clean. The location is excellent. It is right near the mall, multiplaza, a very large Mall. It takes five or ten minutes to walk there. It's right across the street from several good restaurants and shopping. The breakfasts are good and served buffet-style but they will cook eggs to order if you wish. The best part about this hotel though, is it staff. We have been coming here for several years and the staff is largely the same. They are friendly and quite kind. In particular, Maria at the front desk has gone out of her way to be helpful.Also, Jorge and Geraldo are available when needed. They can drive you short distances and answer questions about the area. Everyone is always smiling here! This hotel is close to a private hospital, Cima, and many guests stay here when they are having medical or dental treatment. Also, many business people use this as a base. Travelers can catch tours from here , so, all around, a good place to stay.

Stayed here because it was close to a customer. I'd say it looks a feels kind of like a Motel 6 in the States. The pool and grounds looked very nice. The room was clean, and on the backside it was very quiet. I believe the front side of the building is new construction and may be better appointed then the backside. But may be noisier. I don't know. I would say the biggest draw back are the dining options. The only breakfast option at 7 a.m. is Denny's on-site. Greasy and pretty much what you'd expect from a Stateside Denny's. The Casino has a kitchen, that is truly not bad for dinner. I had a really great seabass with perfect mashed potatoes two nights in a row. The Ceviche was excellent as well. The ambience though is extremely lacking. You are smack in the middle of a small cheezy casino. And the basically turn the lights off in the small dining area at 9 p.m. and won't turn them back on. Making it pretty dark to eat. And not in a good way!

I was very pleased with the breakfast wait staff, they were intuitive and prompt allowing me to have a great start to my days there. The shuttle to the airport and close proximity to the Metro areas make the stay convenient.
