Nice Hotel Close to the Airport
This is an older hotel with comfortable rooms. excellent service, and a nice little restaurant on site - breakfast is included in the room price. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. Though street noise can be a problem in the front rooms, this is a very good choice if you have a late or early flight at the airport, which is only a 5 minute taxi ride away. Its location in the center of Alajuela is great; food, shopping, and musuems are all within walking distance. We've stayed here twice, and would go back again.

Excellent4.0 / 5
A good hotel near the Juan Santamaria Airport
My actual rating for this hotel is: 3.5 / 5 for the following reasons. I chose to stay at this hotel after my other booking for the evening fell through (flying out of the Juan Santamaria Airport early Sunday morning so wanted somewhere near the airport to cat-nap and shower) & it was a good choice. There are many good eateries in the surrounding area & the 2 reception staff I met over my stay were helpful & spoke English well. The room was furnished with quality wooden furniture (a pleasant surprise given the Ikea type of furniture that usually prevails) & very comfortable & the bathroom clean & functional. There were only 2 small negatives I would mention & a caution. The first slight negative is visual - the walls in my room, although white, were a patch-work of white where, for whatever reasons, partial re-paints had been done and it detracted from the visual comfort of the room. The second slight negative is that the shower curtain didn't work very well because, as soon as it got wet it clumped together making it hard not to have water escaping from the confines of the shower, and the caution - if you have lots of luggage, I didn't see a lift. I travel light, so not an issue but something to be aware of - they may not have one. If the owners re-painted the walls, I'd give it a 4-star. Would I stay here again - at the under $50 I paid for the night & a $6 taxi fare to the airport, yes, I definitely would.

Poor1.0 / 5
Both the bed sheets and towels were frayed and stained.The staff were present, but not helpful.As I was leaving the desk clerk did not even hold the door for me and all my luggage. I was booked to stay a week,but left after 2 nights. I would not return or recommend.

Not up the mark
It was OK stay. They had no laundry service and no airport shuttle service which they claim on hotels.com. They need more windows in the room.

Good3.0 / 5
The room was basic. The towels and sheets were stained, but appeared to be clean. There were no bugs, which was good. The front desk was very friendly and eager to help recommend things to do and places to visit. The breakfast was fine, however, it was reheated in the microwave.
