If you are arriving on a late flight, if you have a very early flight out, if you are catching Interbus early in the morning - this is a great place to stay. Our room was clean and surprisingly quiet, our staff interactions were all very positive, there are two restaurants within walking distance, and, a bonus for birders, you can start your list by looking right out your window. Among others, we saw parrots in the trees! Having said that, if time permits, I would always prefer to stay at local... Read more

This hotel is near the airport and basically the kind of place you stay before and after a international flight. Transportation and shuttles are flexible and comfortable. Staff is bi-lingual and extremely helpful. Hotel has clearly spent time having the information and options travelers want ahead of time. The managers should be proud of their staff. Only reason I gave this an average rating is it is near the airport, traffic sucks, location is let's face it, at the airport. You will n... Read more

Very convenient location near the Airport. We stayed there for a day before we left the next day. There is also a car rental spot nearby - Thrifty. If you plan to rent a car, we recommend using Thrifty so you can drop it after your trip ends. The front desk staff was also excellent - we wanted to do some "local" shopping and they directed me to a Mall nearby. It was a great visit.

Clean, comfortable hotel in a convenient location near SJO airport in Alajuela (suburban San Jose). Some items of note are: the complimentary hot breakfast (traditional Costa Rican breakfast- gallo pintos w/ typical American breakfast menu items- eggs, sausage, cereal, bagels, fruit, coffee, juice, etc.). Also there's free wi-fi in the lobby and in the rooms. I would defintiely recommend this hotel if you're flying iin or out of Costa Rica through SJO airport.

The hotel has 24 hour shuttle service to the International Airport. Rooms and clean and comfortable. Denny restaurant is nearby, even walkable. Nice complimentary breakfast. I want to thank Andre, at the front desk for all his help and kindness. The only negative thing I can say, is one elevator was out of service. But, that was more of an inconvenience.

This hotel is about a five-minute from the airport. If you have an early flight out of San Jose then this is a excellent choice. I was impressed with the speed of the shuttle service.

Stayed coming and going from Coasta Rica, with a trip to Tortuguero in the middle. Stayed because of the proximity to the airport and the shuttle. Everything terrific from Service to Rooms to Breakfast. The only thing that would have better would be to have some more information in English and other languages for public transportation, we had difficulty understanding how to get around as we did not have a car or unlimited funds for taxis.

We had an early morning flight to leave Costa Rica and so we decided to try this hotel. It is convenient to the airport-about five minute drive on the shuttle.

Overall loved the hotel; very clean; staff very friendly; breakfast had wonderful fresh fruits, breads, jams, coffee and native dishes like plantains; airport shuttle runs frequently but it would be better, if when returning to the airport, you could sign up for a specific time; instead, you just show up at the lobby and wait for the next shuttle. You can schedule all sorts of tours and pickup is at hotel

Very close to airport. When you exit the airport, cross over to the island. The shuttle comes every 15 minutes or so. It is for the Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn Express. Rooms were clean and beds were comfy. Staff was polite and helpful. There is not a lot of food selection nearby. We went to Rostipollos, which had good chicken dishes. Breakfast was fine. It's a typical Hampton Inn, which works perfectly when you're exhausted after a day of flying!

Although regular check in is at 2, I was able to get to my room at 12pm after a long ride from the Caribbean coast. My toilet was running when I came in an front desk sent someone up directly to fix it. The room was larger than most Hamptons that I have stayed in. Very clean and inviting. Staff very friendly. I hope breakfast is just as great in the m... Read more

We have stayed twice. Very close to airport with a convenient 24-hour shuttle. Rooms are just as expected of a Hampton Inn- clean, comfortable and surprisingly quiet given its proximity to SJO. The breakfast is seriously the best free breakfast buffet I've had at a Hilton hotel... And they are usually pretty dependable. The gallo pinto is so good and on our last trip we were introduced to fresh passion fruit- yummy. There is a Gray Line tour concierge in the lobby- super handy. Front desk staff... Read more

I travelled to Costa Rica and stayed for one night on my way to the interior. The shuttle service from the Airport was excellent. The staff service was personal and friendly and the rooms are excellent. Overall the quality of the hotel and the service was excellent that I decided to stay again on my return from the interior. The location to the Airport is ideal for those who have early flights. I recommend this hotel.

This trip was for business; however, the hotel staff made the trip seem like a vacation. Smiles and inquiries as to any help I needed or how my stay was going brought a smile to my face daily. I highly recommend this hotel.

We routinely stay at Hampton Inns while driving in the USA and have stayed at this one in Costa Rica 3 or 4 times, it's always good! Rooms are ample,spotless with excellent amenities but the breakfast is the highlight. It has a cheerful dining room and a big selection of free food. The staff is friendly and helpful. The immediate area has restaurants including one emphasizing chicken that is really good. Also, the airport shuttle is reliable -very important.

This is a good choice if you have a flight out in the morning or are arriving in the late afternoon. It is easy to find and there are free shuttles on demand to the airport. Another plus is the number of car rental lots adjacent to the hotel. Super convenient! As for the hotel, the property is new with comfortable rooms and comfy mattresses. Free Wifi and breakfast included. The scrambled eggs are not real tasty but there is fresh fruit and make-your-own waffles. The staff is very helpful. ... Read more

We stayed at the Hampton inn for a few days to get acclimatised after a long flight from UK. We arrived feeling weary but the welcome was excellent and we soon felt at home. Kevin on the front desk was exceptional in helping us out and helping to get us transport to our next stop of Monteverde. When we got back he had remembered our names. He made our stay special. The hotel was clean and comfortable although the outside pool was unheated but it certainly helped to refresh us after a bus journey... Read more

Given the location across from the airport, we were amazed that we didn't hear a single plane take off or landing when in the room. It was a relief, given our early morning flight. Very clean, exceptionally comfortable beds. COMPLIMENTARY coffee was a nice touch. A little breakfast bag was provided for those like us leaving before it was served (water, apple, muffin, cereal bar). Only hangup was the limited restaurant selection...Dennys is closest and was VERY expensive. Perfect location across ... Read more

Great hotel!! Hilton should be proud of this location! We stay at a lot of Hilton properties and that is why we chose this one. No regrets!! Customer service was supreme! American Hamptons could learn from this location. Clean, nice and top notch! Best breakfast we ever had at a Hampton as well.

Stayed one night prior to leaving Costa Rica and found it to be a great experience. The room was great and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Loved the take out breakfast before 6 am as we had to leave early. Will definitely stay there next time.

We stayed here the night before our flight out of Costa Rica. The hotel is warm and inviting and the staff are outstanding. They had all the answers to our questions. We got to chat with Kevin V. at the front desk for a few minutes and he was so sweet and genuine in his interest of us and in our experience in beautiful Costa Rica. Kevin was attentive when we had difficulties printing boarding passes and when we needed featherless pillows due to allergies. He always had a smile on his face and... Read more

There is not enough to say about this Hampton Inn property in san Jose Costa Rica. I have been traveling to the area mostly on business routinely over the past 5 years. In the beginning I have tried most of the large chain hotels in the immediate area but none have compared to this Hampton Inn. The property is most convenient to the airport with exceptional shuttle service. There are three excellent restaurants across from the front the parking lot including multiple rental car companies.

After a long day of white-water rafting and traveling it was wonderful to "come home" to an environment that felt like you were with family. Kevin Villalobos, the receptionist went out of his way to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. He even brought us feather-free pillow after his shift had ended. Mynor, the person of the breakfast area made sure we, and other guests, had everything we needed and was constantly on the move. The entire experience was so pleasant.

We had arrived in San Jose late one night and wanted a place to stay after a long day of traveling. This hotel was only 6 minutes from the airport which was very important in making the decision to stay here. This hotel exceeded my expectations, the staff was very friendly, the room was very comfortable and clean, and the beds were very comfortable. We loved the atmosphere at breakfast in the morning and enjoyed how attentive the staff was to us. Thank you! I would definitely stay here again.

I am really happy with everything, from great personal to cleanness to the nice breakfast. It is close to everything, safe, well equipped. The hotel was excellent. The room was clean, it had 2 queen beds and coffeemaker. The breakfast was excellent; fruits, bread, "gallo pinto" (rice and beans), juice and a variety of options.

This is a wonderful Hampton Inn. The proximity to the airport and car rental facilities is convenient. The only thing missing is a large variety of local eating establishments. The Rosti Pollo and The Pirates Bar and Grill in the nearby casino offer two good food options. There is a Denny's there, but I have not eaten there.

Stayed there twice for one night. Very close to airport with efficient shuttle service every 15 minutes (although I never did have to wait so long). Rooms are spacious, clean and provide the standards that you would expect, plus microwave and fridge. Little shop and travel service on ground floor. Excellent free Wifi for 24h.

Because we had an early morning flight out of San Jose, we wanted to stay close to the airport the night prior to our flight. The hotel staff was very friendly, the rooms were clean, wi-fi was very fast, and the bed was very comfortable. We had to leave the hotel before breakfast was served. The hotel had breakfast to-go bags for us to take.

This hotel is very close to the airport and includes a shuttle service. A free breakfast is included. The rooms are very clean even though we encountered a scorpion in our room but that happens in the tropics. The staff is very accommodating and fluent in Spanish and English as well. A little pricey for Costa Rica but very convenient.

I stayed here after a week in the jungle and it was very conveniently located for my early morning flight the next day. It's just what you would expect at a Hampton Inn & Suites. Clean room, amenities like you would see in any of these chain hotels. The coffee was excellent and always available. I left too early to try the breakfast so I can't comment on that. I do recommend that you ask them to call a Red Taxi if you want to go out to eat somewhere that's not nearby. The airport taxi's ... Read more

We stayed at this hotel after a late flight into San Jose. They have airport shuttle which was prompt and the driver was cheerful, even at 2:00 am. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, the rooms were clean. They also offer a full hot breakfast, (included), which I have to say was by far the best hotel breakfast I have ever had or even seen for that matter. I highly recommend this hotel, whether it be a one night stay or multiple nights.

Volcano spewing ash resulted in our flight in being canceled. Costa Rica refused to refund pre paid room even though we booked into another Hampton Inn in Houston for the night. Short story, paid for two rooms, got one, for reasons beyond our control. Contacted complaints and they sent it to Costa Rica to resolve, which of course didn't happen. Very disappointed in this underhanded move. Will not recommend or book Hampton Inn anywhere as a result.

Great experience at this hotel. Clean rooms, good service and always "open" coffee/tea/hot chocolate bar and they even had baked cookies out the evening we were there. Sheets and towels were high quality and beds were very comfortable (we stayed here two nights - at the beginning and again at the end of our trip to Costa Rica). The location is perfect for an early morning flight from SJO (and the shuttle is very convenient).
