Always stay at Hotel Aero. Very close to airport, beautiful grounds, friendly staff, nice rooms, and excellent food. Wouldn't consider any other place. A real CR hotel, not an American cookie cutter.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"They will reimburse cab fare from the airport"
Convenient if you want something inexpensive overnight when flying in or out. I wish I had known in advance that they would reimburse the cab-fare from the airport. Good to know since there is no shuttle. Also not all the rooms have good WiFi signal, so be sure to ask if that is important to you.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good choice for late arrival time from airport."
We were very happy with our stay. We were able to get an orange taxi from the airport to the hotel for free. The hotel reimburses the taxi driver on your arrival. And this despite our flight arriving after 1:30 in the morning and getting to the hotel at around 2:30am because of the time to get through customs and get our baggage. The ugly, red carpet […] could use an update. However, it appears that they are putting tile in the rooms. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were helpful. They have a nice gift shop also. The pool was under renovation when we were there, so we didn't even go down to see it. This is a great place to stay if you have an odd arrival or departure time from the airport.

"Great place to start/end your Costa Rica visit"
The hotel is not spectacular looking but simple and charming. The location is set off from services but close enough to get you to your next destination. There is a little shop, restaurant & bar for anything you might need. For what it is and what it does, it does the job well and the staff makes a 3.5 rating to at least a 4/4.5. A special note to […] Candy who was such an angel. I wanted to marry her on the spot she was so fantastic, attentive, smart and a great problem solver with an attention to detail. She helped us fix all of our problems after a long and exhausting day in a downpour of rain and everyone almost killing each other. In addition, she comes in the next day and without me asking she had already solved another issue I had. Then kept up on me so I did not miss getting to my next destination (and I would have). Unrivaled customer service by all and special kudos to Candy. Everyone else was also great, I even saw another staff member come running out with a phone charger for another guest just as he was getting in the taxi. There are several other examples I do not have room to mention. Be assured they know the weary traveler and know we really need help getting around. The attention and knowledge of the transports will help put your mind at ease and get you to your next destination because there always can be unforeseen issues. I will try this hotel again next time I am going to SJO airport Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"FREE AIRPORT TRANSFER"
Hotel Aeropuerto goes out of it way to ensure the traveler a pleasant stay. The room offers all the amenities, tv, ac, a good shower, coffee maker. The on-site restaurant is pleasant, the staff go out of their way, and transfers to and from the airport are free.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"airport hotel sjo"
Friendly staff, quaint hotel with beautiful grounds. Restaurant was expensive but the meal was excellent. Airport pick up service was great and ahead of schedule. I would give that a 5. The bathtub needs resurfacing and with that I would give this a 5. I go to Costa Rica twice a year for medical issues and will include this hotel on my next visit.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice locally owned hotel by airport."
The hotel is located on beautiful well maintained grounds very close to San Jose airport. The pool is delightful and a perfect place to unwind before or after the airport. The owners take pride in their hotel and the staff is very helpful and welcoming. It was close enough to the rental car agencies that I could easily return my car and make it back […] to the hotel.

"Not what I expected based on other reviews"
This was not the hotel I read about in other reviews. The room was not cleaned properly and felt like the bed had fleas. The shower was very small as well. Although the hotel claimed there was wifi...it didn't work. The receptionist said "yeah its really slow". It wasn't slow, it just didn't work...at all. Not happy and will not be going back. Also, […] they charged me $15 more for my 13 year old when I said how old my kids were when I booked the room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to airport"
If you are a single guy and are trying to save a few bucks, then go for it. In my first room, the AC didn't work. If the second room, I had only a wash and hand towel - no bath towel. The Hampton inn and Holiday Inn Express are closer to the airport and miles above this place, but you will pay about $35 dollars more, but they both have a really nice […] free breakfast and shuttle every 10 minutes to the airport. My taxi that they provided was 20 minutes late. If you are taking a wife or girlfriend, it is no decision to spend the extra $35. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Room needed an update"
The hotel grounds provide a nice setting, although the surrounding area is more industrial than anything else. It's a bit hard to get to the hotel from hwy 1 if you're heading into San Jose. The room was clean, but the bathroom fixtures (tub, lavatory) were old and in need of replacement.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Perfect spot to stay on your way in or out of San José! It is nothing fancy, but clean. The gardens are nice and the staff are very friendly. They also have free international calls!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, Ok bathrooms"
The hotel was in a good location in terms of proximity to the airport. They were very good at coordinating your complimentary shuttle to the airport. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was delicious! The restaurant served the complimentary breakfast which was very very good. The inlyl thing I would complain about is the bathrooms. The showers/tubs […] would clog up and it felt like you were bathing in a swimming pool of your dirty bath water. Gross! That is one of the most uncomfortable things for me personally. Also, the sink would leak constantly. I mentioned it to the front desk clerk and she said she'd have it looked at. Aside from the bathroom ordeal it was a good hotel.

This hotel is convenient to the airport and has 24 hour shuttle service (by using a taxi - they pay for it). They were very helpful, and it was fine for the first 2 nights of our stay as we got our bearings on Costa Rica.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Inviting hotel, helpful staff, near the airport"
This hotel is lovely and feels local--not at all like the big-box american hotels nearby. The lobby is open-air with couches and chairs, which I sat in for hours with friends. It feels like the hotel is set in the jungle, not just off of a main highway. There are mango trees all over. There are a lot of car parts shops on the same road--it's not an […] upscale neighborhood. But the property feels secure and very well-tended. They offer free taxi rides to and from the airport, which is less than 10 minutes away, and the (included) continental breakfast is delicious (and vegetarian!). The staff answered my many questions and helped me arrange taxis for excursions. The rooms are comfortable and clean. It was so nice that I decided to spend my last two nights on my way home there, instead of at a hotel in San Jose proper. The restaurant has friendly staff and decent food (and the first night they had a band playing!). I felt like family while I was there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient, nice hotel close to airport"
My wife and I stayed in Costa Rica for about 9 days. We arrived late in the evening and so we stayed at Hotel Aeropuerto our first night. It was perfect! It was close to the airport and they had free shuttle to the hotel. The hotel was inexpensive, clean, and convenient! We would stay there again! JoeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for flying in and out of San Jose"
The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The food at the restaurant was above par for hotel food. If you're looking for a Marriott, this is not for you, If you would like to experience the funkiness along with the friendliness of Costa Rica, stay here for nights before and after flights.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Amazingly quiet even though this hotel is on the s"
Very friendly and helpful folk at the front desk. They organized a taxi ride back from the rental car agency and a very early wake-up call as well as free taxi to the airport.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good Cheap Airport Hotel"
I was looking for a place to stay nearby to the airport. In the past I had free nights to use at the Hampton right next door, but since I didn't I was looking for something more affordable. This place was great, especially for the money. The room was nice and well maintained. My only problem was on the tile floor my bed wasn't quite even so it rocked […] back and forth until I put something under a leg. That and the fact that the tile floors/concrete walls carry sound so well that all the noise in the lobby makes it to your room, but overall still a very pleasant experience. I would definitely stay again if I need a room near the airport. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"I Recommend Hotel Aeropuerto..."
The value for the money was excellent here. The location was great relative to the main airport. The hotel also had a free shuttle service to and from the airport - very convenient - and easy access to taxi services as needed. The staff (especially Candy at the front desk) was friendly, knowledgeable, supportive and reliable...made us feel at home and […] well cared for. The restaurant was excellent and convenient and had excellent live entertainment (and dancing) on Friday evenings. Breakfast (a full spread; hot and fresh food, coffee, tropical fruits, etc.) was included in the hotel price as well - very nice feature - available every day. The rooms were comfortable and functional - not fancy - and fine. The most challenging aspect (for those of us who rented a car and drove there ourselves) was getting there...if you miss the quick turn off on Route 1 and its nighttime and you don't know the area or speak the language, you will be in for an adventure! I recommend that the hotel put a map up on its website and give maps to local rental car agencies to facilitate the process of getting there. We have fun stories to tell AND it was a little unsettling...once we figured it out, it was just fine. The hotel is located in a light industrial area, which is a little off-putting upon approach, however, once you pass through the gates, it's a beautiful garden oasis, protected, well-kempt, and comfortable. A large number from our party stayed there and enjoyed their stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"good for being close to the airport; inexpensive"
hotel was good for what we needed. right by the airport. we stayed there the night we arrived and the night before we flew out. room was fine. neighborhood is ok (it is in what appears to be an industrial area) though the property is very safe and pretty under the circumstances (24 hr manned gate). staff are very nice (as is just about everyone in costa […] rica). only possible problem is noise - our room was right near the lobby so you could hear people moving back and forth. roosters could be heard pretty early in the morning. have no idea where they were coming from because it was in an industrial area. but that is costa rica for you.

"Close to SJO airport, reimbursed taxi, great staff"
Most of the other reviews are accurate. It is a family-run, local-flavor rustic motel. They reimburse the cab drivers rather than running a shuttle. The process is described in detail on their hotel website. A good place to stay the night you arrive and the night you leave.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not really great"
I have to say that we were only there for short stay arriving and departing Costa Rica. Everything was a bit confusing; you use a cab to get there, not a shuttle. Then they pay the driver. Coming in late there was almost no one available for questions. The restaurant was closed so the free breakfast didn't count at all. We stayed twice and on the second […] night our room was not clean, no towels and someone had actually gone to the bathroom and not flushed the toilet! We were so late that we didn't even call. We just fell into the very hard beds because we had to leave by 4:00 am. The ride back to the airport the squeezed 4 of us into a LITTLE cab. The ladies with us had such huge suitcases that ours didn't fir in the trunk so we had to carry ours on our laps. Thank God it was a short trip. This is the main reason this hotel is okay...it is less than 10 minutes to the airport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent place for a quick overnight."
We flew in late in the evening and, thankfully, the hotel is not far from the airport. Decent room, great, helpful staff who speak English, nice plantings outside. Didn't get a chance to try a dinner here as left early the next morning. We liked it enough that we went on and booked our last night in the country. This is not a fancy, newer chain hotel, […] but rather an older perhaps family run place. Comfortable bedding, showers clean with hot water and good water pressure.

"Nice hotel and nice people"
We stayed in this family owned hotel for two nights, one night at each end of our Costa Rica trip, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very efficient, friendly, and helpful. Rooms were clean and in March we could open the window and enjoy the beautiful fresh air. The pubic areas are open air (bugs were not a problem) and make you feel like […] you're on a tropical vacation (vs in a chain hotel). There is a restaurant on the premises and we ate breakfasts and dinners there. The food is good, not expensive, and plentiful. Another reviewer mentioned that the free breakfast is typical tico food. Perhaps. They had rice and beans, but they also had scrambled eggs, toast with butter and a selection of jams, very fresh cut-up melons, pineapple, and papaya, and dry cereal with milk. The grounds are very nicely landscaped and well maintained. They have a couple of seating areas where you can sit in the gardens, and some plants have signs to identify them. The mango trees are jaw-dropping, some of the biggest we've ever seen and laden with gorgeous fruit. We needed a ride to the airport and this was provided - we were driven there by a family member in his private vehicle, a plush Toyota land cruiser. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Sketchy, isolated neighborhood"
The hotel itself was fine- clean, nice staff, nice looking. But after seeing the neighborhood, I decided to find a new hotel. It was in a very isolated industrial area. There was security at the front gate of the hotel and a security guard also wandering the property. The only lock on the door was the door knob, there wasn't any bolt or extra lock. […] There also weren't very many guests. Some people might feel safe with the added security, but given the location, the need for security made me feel uncomfortable.

Very pleased with our 2 night stay here. Used the 150 Colone bus ride to Alajuela and really enjoyed it. The hotels shuttle is very quick and dependable.

"Down-at-the heels oasis near the airport"

"Not bad, but not good either"
Hotel is in a weird, industrial area just off CA1. Right next to a junkyard and what looks like a motorcycle repair shop. Nothing really within walking distance. It worked for what we wanted; hotel close to the airport to stay one night and catch an early flight. But the pics online make it look a lot nicer than it is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We stayed here twice, coming and going out of San Jose. Although not modern, the hotel and restaurant are very comfortable and quiet, and the staff were very friendly and efficient in arranging free transport to and from the airport.

This is a great place to stay if you need to be by the airport for an early flight. They have a complimentary shuttle to the airport. The food at the restaurant was quite good, certainly better than most US hotel restaurant food. Rooms are nothing special, but they are clean and have AC. We arrived after dark and the kids were hoping to swim, but there […] were no lights around the pool and it didn't seem very inviting. Otherwise, the grounds were very nice and tight security with gated entry. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
