"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
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

"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

"Quaint but not great"
Room had a funny smell. Poor lighting. Not as close to the airport as I had expected. Couldn't get wireless internet to work in the room. Staff was nice and helpful and spoke good English.Genuine Expedia guest review

found the hotel on the internet. so went in blind with no expectations and was very satisfied with their entire staff and operation, from front desk,food service, management staff, etc. all very friendly and helpful. would look forward to staying there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Probably the best place in San Jose area"
Simply fantastic, a very pleasant oasis; well kept, quiet, great amenities; excellent breakfast included. A very good restaurant on the premises. Perfect launching and returning point for the airport (5 minutes away), actually stayed there first and last night of a 2 week holiday. Terrific rooms at a very good price. Highly recommend to everyone, and […] especially good for families. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"close to airport"
Was conveniet for our purpose, to stay a night near airport because flight was early in the morning.But airport shuttle was not available so we had to pay a taxi that was $20.00 for a very short distance and no traffic hour. Steakhouse on site was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great restaurant and staff wonderful. Breakfast very satisfying and filling. Will go again to this hotel and recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Oasis near the airport"
My family and I (4 total) spent a week off the pacific coast in the jungles of Costa Rica. My God, this country is truly beautiful! We drove back to the city the night before our flight and stayed at El Rodeo Country Inn and Steak House. The hotel grounds are huge and well kept. We checked in at 3:00p and it went smooth, despite the front desk reception […] girl who seemed preoccupied with sewing her pants. The room was for four but only had enough towels and cups for two. Other then that, the room was beautiful and spacious. The beds are hard but comfortable. The pillows were flimsy but they had extra in the room. We ate an early dinner at the hotel restaurant. The food is delicious. They brought out warm bread and freshly made corn tortillas and three types of sauces. They were sooo good!! Dinner for four was $100.36, which included alcohol. After dinner we went into the sauna and then the pool, which was awesome. In the morning we went for breakfast which was a small buffet composed of yogurt, fruit, toast, fresh pineapple and orange juice with a breakfast of our choice; traditional Costa Rican breakfast, pancakes, or an omelet with ham, cheese and mushrooms. We ordered all of them and they were delicious. After breakfast we spoke with reception to get a taxi which was ready for us when we needed it. It was a very nice experience.

it was wonderful i would recomend it to everybody if i ever go back to costa rica im sure ill stay in same place.Genuine Expedia guest review
El Rodeo is a nice hotel. It has a beautiful pool, and the rooms are spacious. They have an excellant free breakfast. The room is remodeled, but the bathroom smelled a bit moldy. Our a/c was on high all night long, and kept the room comfortable at best. The beds were EXTREMELY firm! They tout the location being close to the airport....but even with […] GPS, it took us quite a while to get there. Also, I didn't see the airport shuttle that was promised...but we did have a rental car, so we didn't need one. I can honestly say that I wouldn't stay here again, as they didn't have any amenities.

"Quiet, elegant hotel close to San Jose Airport."
Excellent, buffet breakfast, effective individually-controlled air conditioning in each room, very comfortable beds and bedding. Everything was spotless. A pool, lounge areas and exercise suite plus free internet. (Endless, single stairs leading to rooms instead of an elevator.) Location is some distance from the airport - a $10 ride in a red, metered […] cab, but as much as $30 if you get ripped off by private cabs. Nevertheless, highly recommended. And although a bit pricey, the privately owned and run steakhouse serves excellent food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was really cute- a little further from the airport than the other hotels, but seemed more authentic. Pool, gardens, and playground were nice. Staff was friendly, helpful, and spoke English.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"El Rodeo a good fit"
The hotel was clean and the room nicely decorated, and the grounds were well maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed here for the night before a flight, it was good value for money, a ten dollar taxi ride to the airportGenuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful but too brief a stay"
The staff were exceptional. The room was large,clean with all the amenities expected of a first class hotel. Enjoyed a very tasty Costa Rican meal in the dining room. Meals are a little pricey butI did not go away still hungry, unfortunately I was unable to finish there was so much food.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Costa Rica starting point"
You will enjoy the outstanding breakfast and the general arangement of the complex. All employees are extremely friendly and very helpful. It was the right place for arriving in the middle of the night after a very long flight; excellent starting point for our tour through Costa Rica. We booked the same location for our last day.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel Don't be late!"
Nice hotel, about 15 minutes from the airport. Get very good directions and be there before the restaurant closes around 10PM because it's gated and the gates are locked and not attended. I sat there at 10:30 at night whistling and someone heard me and came. Breakfast was good and included.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good hotel, bad restaurant"
Hotel is good, the restaurant is not worth going to, $ 28 for a T-bone and I think my shoe is easier to eat, dessert Tira misu was still frozen inside, should be freshly made. 01.25.2012Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, friendly staff - clean spacious rooms"
The steakhouse is a bargain compared to other restaurants in the area and it is excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to airport, comfortable"
I chose this hotel as the price was reasonable and it was close to the airport - also it included breakfast and WiFi internet. The staff were incredibly accomodating, arranged to call bus co's and taxis etc. on my behalf and allowed me a late check-out as I waited. The clerk spoke English very well and was extremely nice and helpful. The room was large, […] clean and comfortable. Breakfast was more than I expected and quite good. I'd definitely stay again!

Hotel was very good and especially clean. Staff very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location was close to the airport. It was very clean, had hot water and the staff was very friendly. The food at the restaurant was great, but expensive. It was our first night in Costa Rica and so we didn't mind. We arrived 10 min. prior to the restaurant closing and the staff kept the kitchen open for us which made us very happy. The hotel was […] a little oasis in the "city". We could hear birds signing during breakfast. They had a pool, but we didn't take advantage of it as we left early in the morning. The only thing that was a negative was that the beds were very hard for our taste. Other than that, I would stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Wow - Great friendly upscale hotel at great price"
Close to the airport, great service, extremely helpful and friendly. We ended up booking this hotel again at the end of our trip. A must. We had three rooms. Our teenage boys loved it, grandma loved it and so did my husband and I.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This is a beautiful property with flowers, gardens, pool, tennis court, playground, etc. Our 2 young children appreciated the variety of things to do. The staff was very helpful and we had no trouble communicating in English with any of them. The breakfast was suberb and could be enjoyed on the deck overlooking the pool area. The steakhouse was pretty […] good - lots of different steaks and wines to choose from in a ranch-style environment. It was handy to have it on the property so no other transportation was required. Our room was impeccable, and included a balcony overlooking a courtyard area filled with tropical plants. No complaints here! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
