Typical Best Western experience

We decided to stay here for one night before we flew home because it was closer to the airport and the pictures of the pool looked good. Check in was easy and we were allowed to check in early since our room was ready. Unfortunately, our room was one of the outside facing rooms so our view was looking into another apartment building and not of the pool and gardens. It was your typical Best Western type room with 2 double beds. After staying in Laguna Lodge in Tortuguero and Lomas del Volcan in La Fortuna, the room seemed small. As with all of the hotels we stayed in, the room also had a small safe so that was nice. We stayed on the 3rd floor and the ice machines had been removed from the floor so we had to go to the 2nd floor to get ice.We decided to go outside for a bit and visit the Parque Metropolitano La Sabana, which was only about 3km away, but there is no safe way to walk there as there are no sidewalks on the main highways. We took a cab there for $3 and a return cab for $4. As I said, our room didn't face the pool so when we got back and decided to have a drink, we sat on the balcony off of the computer room since there were two chairs and a table there. The computer room with printer was nice, but I had to laugh as they all had international keyboards and everyone that came in from US didn't know how to type the @ symbol. Unfortunately, there were thunderstorms in the afternoon and evening so we didn't get a chance to try out the pool.One of the nice perks about this hotel is that you get a complimentary drink the day you check in if you use it before 7pm at Denny's or at Sangria's. Also, breakfast is included, but since we had to leave for the airport at 5am we would miss it. The nice thing was that Denny's is open 24 hours so we got breakfast there at 4:30am. They have a set menu (2 items) for the complimentary breakfast. Still, it was nice to get a breakfast as most other hotels we would be out of luck. The shuttle to the airport ($8/person) was promt and got us there quickly.

Room Not Cleaned

Arriving in our room found it a mess. Beds were not changed and dirty towels were still in the bath tub. They were first just going to change the sheets and get clean towels until I said that we needed a different room. We got another room - it had been cleaned but smelled stale. Oh well, a place to sleep for the night.

Short stay before heading to the beach

My fiancé and I stayed here before heading to La Fortuna and Jaco Beach. Pretty decent hotel nothing spectacular. The rooms were clean. There was a nice outdoor pool. The staff was very friendly. Great hotel for the price.

A January regular

Been coming to San Jose for 17 years and over the last five years the crew here has been the best yet! In particular paula and Andre at the front desk and Norma in reservations do such a great job, always courteous and friendly. The only thing that would make this location better would be a heated swimming pool and a buffet breakfast! The location is very clean, the staff are attentive and I look forward to seeing you again next year! -tony mascia/batman
