holiday inn express

the breakfast was very carb heavy, but the room was clean, and the staff were very efficient and professional. the location is very convenient to the airport. I did have a heavy wooden valance fall off the window and bruise my arm but the staff were very quick to react and the next morning were checking the valances in all the rooms to be sure no more were loose

while you can see the airport from the hotel-its not appropriate to walk. they have a free shuttle that operates 24 hours. you can also pay the exit tax at the hotel, rather than waiting in line at the airport

Great room, great service

The room was very comfortable for the night before flying home. The lobby staff spoke good English and helped us take care of the exit visa with no problem. Breakfast to go in the morning was nice touch for an early departure. Shuttle was easy, on time, and quick (5-10 minutes from door to gate)

Close to the airport

This is close to the airport and perfect if you have an early flight. We rented a car through Budget, we were able to walk back from the car rental because of the close proximity. Ate at the restaurant right across the parking lot and was able to receive a discount. In addition to the 24/7 shuttle to the airport. Fit all of our needs for our last nights stay in Costa Rica.
