"El Rodeo at the San Jose Airport"
Fantastic, beautiful hotel. Safe as it was totally gated. Great restaurant! My new favorite place to stay at the San Jose Airport.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful setting, casual atmosphere, near airport"
Elegant rooms, wonderful breakfast served on the deck by nice people. The beautiful setting, yet casual atmosphere is perfect for business meetings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Una noche en El Rodeo"
My family stayed one night at this facility during our recent trip to Costa Rica. The property is large with several on-site amenities. Since we arrived on Christmas Eve, we were expecting a lot of guests but the crowd turned out to be moderate. This may be reflected in the upkeep of the place. Our room was comfortably large for a group of four. The […] bed mattresses were firm (biggest concern for anybody who is constantly on the road). However, the bathroom sink had leakage issue causing pool of water on the floor that we had to mop up after each use. The bathroom fixtures were not properly secured. The dinning service was good and the hotel stuff was helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Internet doesn't work, restaurant is inconsistent"
This is the second time we have stayed in this hotel. The biggest problem is that their Internet just doesn't ever seem to work. How a hotel in San Jose can have such poor Internet is a puzzle - obviously they just don't care enough to fix it. Location is close to the airport, but if you are coming from the beach, Santa Ana or Escazu you need to get […] there before 2:00 PM as the road to the hotel is one of the most congested in all of San Jose at rush hour. The steak restaurant could really be a standout as they have access to good cuts of beef and some nice brick enclosed grills and ovens. Unfortunately they have some problems - the bread is terrible, and the lesser cuts of beef aren't very good. That said, if you order carefully you can usually get a pretty good meal.

"Clean, pretty, & workers are honest & friendly."
Great and comfortable stay. Bedroom and Bathroom were both clean and spacious. Plenty of amenities. I heard from the locals that the dinner restaurant they have is really good as well, and I regret not having had time to eat there. But the breakfast they served (which was included in the price) was great. And at night the hotel has a closed gate, and […] cars and people must speak with the gatekeeper to get in. Lastly, the workers there are helpful, honest, and friendly! But remember, no mater how well mannered a worker may be, it is our duty to remember the Golden Rule--it will serve all parties well.

"Great hide away"
Great hotel in a very well located area. Not far from airport, Escazu or San Jose. Biggest problem is the connecting roads which are always pretty jammed with traffic. Other than that, great!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place to stay. Safe and comfortable!"
I have stayed here three times and each of the times has been a pleasant experience. Great rates!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great layout and very chill atmosphere."

"Very quiet, shower had some trouble"
We took a cab to the hotel after dropping off our rental car. Really glad we did, because I am not sure we would have found it being unfamiliar with the area. I was quite impressed when we arrived into the courtyard. The hotel has several buildings. Our room with two queen beds was huge. The front desk people were very nice. Breakfast was delicious. […] My my only two issues with the hotel were that the shower was very odd, it was hard to get the temperature correct and the second thing was there was a bit of moving to disrepair.

i have stayed there several times.. on a main road, but far enough away to be quiet... very peaceful... the man at the desk, Jessie, was very pleasant and helpful. he is an asset to the hotel.... he helped find a car on a weekend which was a holiday., only wish intenet connection in room was better... will be staying there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price, this place can't be beat! The rooms were clean and huge. It was a little far from the airport, so the cab was $17. The staff was super friendly and helpful. If you're hungry, there is a mcdonalds a couple blocks away. There's also a GREAT steakhouse at the hotel. It's a bit pricier though (about $20 a person) It has one of the best ribeye […] steaks I've ever had there! I would definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice little gem near the airport"
We stayed here just one night right before our flight out of San Jose in the morning. The grounds were surprisingly very nice, the rooms were comfortable & clean, and plenty of room. The staff is very nice. And we were about 25 minutes to the airport. Oh, and the steaks at the restaurant were pretty decent (some of the better steak we've had in Costa […] Rica anyway) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Steak house is amazing, room is great, ac works perfectly and decor is niceGenuine Expedia guest review
"We would come back!"
Stayed at this hotel with my boyfriend, too bad we couldn't stay for an extra night but we were heading somewhere else. This is a beautiful, quaint hotel! The employees we dealt with were extremely nice and helpful (we do speak spanish), breakfast was great (we did not get to try the steak restaurant), everything very clean and in order. The only thing […] we could say is that even tho the hotel is not that far from the airport it isn't easy to get there, we had previously read the reviews so we were prepared and had a map with a step by step way of getting to the place, I can imagine one can totally get lost otherwise! I would love to stay there another time if we go back to Costa rica. Just a piece of advice for the travelers. NEVER NEVER leave anything of value inside of your cars in CR we got our car broken into and a lot of things of value were stolen from us, afterwards we were told that this happens very frequently, we wish we knew this before!!

"It was in the hood, had armed guards/gated though"
Ffriendly and accommodating staff. Fixed a breakfast bag since we had to leave at 3 Sam to catch our flightGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good for one night"
The actual hotel was nice, the surroundings not so nice - there wasnt anything to see or do in the area. We stayed here the first night because it was close to the airport and we didn't want to start navigating Costa Rica at night. It was further from the airport than we expected - 10-15 min drive, $10 or 5000 colones. But the room was nice, very clean […] and the staff was very friendly. They have a pretty good restaurant and a complimentary breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We loved our brief stay after a late flight into San Jose. The gated hotel was a beautiful oasis in the middle of the city. But great service, wonderful hot breakfast, air conditioning. We started bird watching from the porch at breakfast. Highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
stayed on the way in and out of San Jose. Very convenient for the airport. Clean well proportioned rooms and bathrooms. not quite as up to date as US hotels but perfectly good. Friendly and helpful staff, and including fusion of local and US style breakfast.Area round about does not have much but a decent pub up the street. security was excellent, and […] steaks were good, and I do not say that often outside of Texas.

Not convenient to SJO airport and no free transportation to the airport.Good breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is quite nice in a lush garden like surroundings. Would be great if they could get rid of the the unpleasant bathroom smell.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel near airport"
Our stay was very comfortable & nice. The staff was very helpful. We really liked the room's balcony overlooking the tropical garden.Genuine Expedia guest review
"It's OK for a night or two"
Staff kindness overrides any issue (which we didn't have). Room is OK, breakfast is OK, nothing very fancy. They have a nice playground and a tennis court with a very low fence surrounding it; therefore... balls end up in the neighbor's property :)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful place recommend highly"
Beautiful place recommend highly steak house at facility was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel and staff. Restaurant was amazing!!! Only complaint was that the mattress was a little firm for my taste.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We finally found our place to stay in San Jose!"
The rooms were spacious, the beds comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds were refreshing, tropical and lovely. Listening to all the exotic birds at breakfast over the pool was perfect. This was better than the Marriott and the Wyndham.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great Costa Rican hotel"
My husband and I always try to stay at locally owned hotels to help support local economies and eco-tourism. This hotel met all our requirements. We stayed here as a stopping-off point for our Drake Bay trip. The front desk staff speak English and arranged to have a taxi meet us at the airport (I arranged this via email). They also arranged to have […] a packed breakfast prepared for us since our flight left before the free traditional breakfast. The room was very comfortable, with nice firm beds. We also ate dinner at the hotel's restaurant. Great food with very reasonable prices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Cannot recommend this place"
If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a nice hotel, very clean with great staff. The breakfast is included, and varies in quality from day to day. On a good day, it's great! Several of the staff speak good English. If you are a light sleeper, request the rooms that are not beside the ice machine!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Better than expected"
We stayed for a total of three nights in two different rooms and we were very impressed with the cleanliness, decor and comfort of this hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Abraham at the front desk made us feel right at home. Beautiful grounds and conveniently located. Felt completely safe. Food was excellent. We would definitely […] stay here again.

"Choose anywhere else."
Unfortunately, there was little good about our experience at El Rodeo. The staff was okay... it felt like they were in training. There was ABSOLUTELY NO WIFI outside of the lobby and the 2 computers they have for guest use. We had no lightbulb in our room lamp, the coffee creamer was chunky powder and there was a wierd siren that went off every 20 minutes […] all night long. The Steakhouse was good but the resort smelled like dog food... which was strange. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice for the price"
Great spot for an arrival or departure stay close to SJO airport. The attached steak house was just OK.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place to stay"
Nice hotel with very friendly staff and great service. Internet is off and on. Showers are very slippery. I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to Airport"
We needed a hotel near the airport and for that reason selected El Rodeo. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms while tidy, I wouldn't describe as 4 star rooms. They seemed to be in the midst of finishing the renovations on them. We ate dinner at the steakhouse and were disappointed. The steaks were very thin and tasted burnt from the flame […] grilling.

Very nice hotel. We stayed for our final night in Costa Rica to be nearby the airport. Kids found the foosball table and the computer (after a week of no digital interactions). Lunch at the restaurant was great. Sunday night the restaurant closes at 4:30, the hotel bar menu is very limited.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice comfortable hotel"
Great room with comfortable beds, wonderful breakfast, close to San Jose airport . Great service, very clean and safeGenuine Expedia guest review
Perfect one night hotel. Well located near the airport. Nice breakfast, great steakhouse. Wifi terrible!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Off the beaten path on a crazy road"
The hotel itself is nice. Great security and the food at the restaurant was good. Be careful if you are driving because the traffic is insane there during the day. The rooms were good size and updated well. WIFI is ok, but no CR wifi was great. The pool looked dirty so we didn't bother swimming. Not a bad place to spend the night. We would have had […] breakfast but we had no time. They cook it for you the way it looked. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hard to find"
The hotel was almost impossible to find and scary neighborhoods in the dark. Hotel itself very nice. We did have to switch rooms and move our sleeping child due to a broken AC, but hotel once there very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent! The front desk had my check in ready for me from the moment I walked in and had everything ready. The room was very clean and comfy.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Okay - easy access to airport- around 15 dollars"
Hotel was okay- close to hotel- clean enough but overall it needs a bit of maintainance. The steakhouse was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel."
We stayed here at the end of our trip to Costa Rica to be close to the airport. A good, quiet spot with pleasant gardens and rooms. Nice people, very good restaurant. Continental was of a good standard.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nicest room we had in CR."
Room was ultra clean, not typical of CR hotels. Everything felt like being at a 4 star hotel in the states. Great beds. The restaurant was the best part. We went to 3 argentinian steakhoueses and this was by far the best. Try it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A gem of a hotel"
A gem of a hotel. Staff is very friendly. Food is great. The quality of the room was superb.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel and great restaurant"
We spent two nights at El Rodeo and can't complain about anything. The rooms were very large with two queen sized beds and a large bathroom. We loved the smell of the teak closets and floors. The restaurant was outstanding and the staff was very helpful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice hotel"
While this hotel wasn't the easiest to find, and as we were getting in really late it took a minute to get someone to open the front gate, once we were in the hotel was great. The hotel staff were very helpful and got us everything we needed. The weather was warm but the AC worked right away and cooled the room very quickly. There was a very inviting […] pool which I didn't get to enjoy, but would have liked to. There was also an outdoor patio area with a TV and a pool table. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old World Charm"
old world charm...feels like Spain or Argentine...very horsey place with beautiful saddles in restaurant. great steaks. only problem was broken internet service. In general internet services when it worked in Costa Rica was very slow. Not crowded or busy. Gated hotel like most around San Jose. Felt safe. Large rooms, Super beds. Shower did not drain […] well..not major issue. Great TV channel selection. Near airport. No shuttle. Just taxis. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We used this hotel on our last night of our vacation to be close to the airport. It was a little further than expected but when we told the desk clerk what time our flight was he told us the appropriate time to leave. He ordered the taxi and because we needed to leave before breakfast was being served had two boxed breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Large hotel grounds in a not interesting part of town, but then there are not many interesting parts of San Jose. It's not really close to the airport. A place to relaxGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really Nice Place"
I was really surprised by how nice the El Rodeo Country Inn and Steakhouse was. I booked it for the night before an early flight from San Jose. When they learned that we had to leave before their complimentary breakfast, they made little brown bag breakfasts for us to take on the plane. They made us feel very welcome. (The Steak House was very nice […] too.) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
