"Safe and good for airport"
We just stayed one night as we got in at midnight and didn't want a long drive to the house. It was OK. Decent beds, safe, good breakfast, and wifi. Nice guy working in the morning who was helpful. Wouldn't do it longer term but clean (for being old) and decent place to transition from hotel to lodging etc. Will stay there again when we leave.

"Convenience wins"
We stayed one night on our way out of Costa Rica. This hotel is close to the airport and provides breakfast and airport services. This is a clean hotel. A little out dated but again, for the convenience it is perfect. There is nothing wrong with the place. Everyone is nice and accommodating.

"OK, but beware of false advertising"
Good hotel, however don't believe it when they say they pay for airport transportation. Unless you arrange in advance, at least 24 hours, they refuse to pay. Advertising is inaccurate. Otherwise a nice hotel, but be prepared to pay the taxi fare each way.

"Too short to judge very well"
The guard had to let my taxi in because we arrived at 1am, but there was no problem. The hotel paid my driver apparently because during normal hours they have airport service. They had put me on the ground floor, which I appreciated because I had a heavy suitcase and I don´t think there´s an elevator.

"Good hotel for airport convenience"
I stayed at this hotel to be near the airport. They offered a free shuttle to the airport as well as from the airport to the hotel. The cab drivers in orange taxis will take you to the hotel for free if you hail them at the airport. The strengths of the hotel include the service, the shuttle, and the grounds/pool. Downsides are the restaurant where the food is overpriced and lackluster and the rooms that need a coat of paint.

"First night in Costa Rica"
I had read online that hotel Aeropuerto pays for your taxi ride to and from the airport so that was one of the reasons I initially chose this hotel. As soon as you walk out of customs you will see cab companies everywhere offering rides. I do not speak much Spanish so I just pointed to my destination and a taxi driver walked us over to a group of drivers wearing hotel Aeropuerto shirts. Easy as that. Everyone who works at the hotel is fabulous. They make you feel right at home! Just as other reviews said Hector and Marcella are amazing! We only stayed our 1st night at this hotel then took a shuttle to puerto viejo.

"Great for 1 night upon arrival/departure."
Very convenient to the airport. Great place to rest your head when arriving or departing San Jose (wouldn't say much longer). Nothing special about the location, other than proximity to airport (5 minutes), kind of industrial"ish". Free airport shuttle is convenient. No fridge in room, however, they let me use one of the drink coolers in the lobby for my leftovers. A/C works as it should. Breakfast is GREAT. Hotel staff are very nice and grounds are nice as well. NOTHING FANCY, but gets the job done. Beds are "ok". Restaurant is overpriced, but the menu looked great. We only ate the free breakfast and it was great.

"Good hotel for travelers using the airport"
The most impressive thing about this hotel are the beautiful grounds surrounding. The staff was very helpful and the restaurant food excellent. The hotel needs some upgrading, it is showing its age. The hotel pays for the short cab ride to and from the airport. Use Orange cabs for the ride.

"Convenient, close to airport"
We Have stayed here many times and know personally quite a few staff and the owners. This hotel is, for us, just right. The atmosphere is much like Costa Rican hotels in the days before there were so many tourists. Close to the airport with free shuttle service, excellent restaurant, clean, quiet rooms, nice garden area. Most of the staff have worked there for many years, which says a lot. The hotel is not close to downtown Alejuela and further still from San Jose. Probably not for those who want all the touristy conveniences of the big North American style hotels, but we definitely do not want that, and much prefer the family friendliness of Hotel Aeropuerto. Thank you Hector, Marcela, Gerardo, Christian, Rosa, Firdous, Luis, and others as well as owner Gema and family.

"AVOID THIS BUG-RIDDEN HOTEL"
loaded with BEDBUGS. A/C did not work. Could not sleep due to warm room. Staff unfriendly and unhelpful. EXAMPLE: Breakfast (INCLUDED)starts at 6:00 a.m. We had to leave on shuttle for airport at 6:00 a.m. At 10 minutes TO 6:00 we could see everything was ready and the buffet laid asked. Asked if we could at least get a cup of coffee and we told by the hotel staff, " NO, THE BREAKFAST STARTS AT 6:00" However the attached restaurant was excellent. Good food, good service, good atmosphere. GO TO THE RESTAURANT BUT AVOID STAYING AT THIS HOTEL.

Shower pressure on turbo charge and plenty of hot water. There was an evening band, I could hear music from the room, but it did not interrupt my early bed time. The restaurant food was very good.

"Don't bother"
DO NOT stay here. I booked a room on Expedia and ensured there were two queen beds. When we finally get to the scary neighborhood where this hotel is, they tell me that they have to charge me $20 dollars extra for my sister. They said I only reserved for 1 person and that extra people are more money. I emediately got back on expedia and tried to reserve the same hotel room with 4 people instead the same night and it was actually 2 dollars cheaper. I showed them and they still wouldn't budge. So much for their excuse that more people are more money. I was so upset I called expedia. They told me the room holds 4 and they would try to help. After calling themselves, expedia couldn't do anything about it. I believe this is a crime and a horrible way to do business. But wait, It gets better. I told the front desk guy that my sister needed a shuttle at one time and I needed a shuttle at a different time. He then tells me that the room only comes with one shuttle to the airport. The other person would have to pay for a taxi. Can you believe this? As I was arguing with my guy about how I feel about the way they do business, I see his manager or co workier talking to his colleague and looking our way and snickering at each other. Hiding in his office and laughing at us! I was steaming. It wasn't the $20 dollars. It was the principle of the whole thing. As far as the hotel goes, the lobby is nothing to be desired and the room was clean'ish and just seemed grimy and outdated. The

"Nice place....hard to find"
The hotel was nice and very clean. The staff was super and the breakfast was good, served eggs, black beans and rice with some fruit and plantains which were really sweet and good. Had juice to drink with 2 options, both good. The location was extremely hard to find. We arrived after dark rented a car and after driving around for about an hour finally stopped at a Papa Johns. The staff there didn't speak any English but lead us directly to the hotel on a motorcycle. He went way beyond his call of duty! So YEA Papa Johns!!!! Once there it was a nice place. We did not swim, but looked at the pool facilities and they seemed fine.
