Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Stay Had a great stay at your facility last week. The front desk personnel were very courteous and helpful. Highly recommend to my friends. April 27, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Overall nice stay in San Jose We were relieved to see a lobby that resembled the familiarity we were used to in the U.S. when we walked through the doors here. The attendant at the front desk who helped us with check in was a little rough around the edges but he worked with us by the time we were done. We had a nice room and good experience by the time we left. Affordable and convenient place. April 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Convenient This staff was wonderful and made it very easy to get to the airport for a very early flight with no worries. March 27, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Close to the Airport Stayed at this Holiday Inn because I had a very early flight out of San Jose. Loved the fact that the free airport shuttle ran every 15 minutes. Check in was easy - English speaking front desk clerks. The rooms were comfortable and secure. The casino next door was nice and the food there was good - the drinks also were good. It was a little expensive for Costa Rica but the convenience to the airport was worth it. March 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff - comfortable room. Outstanding all around. Great, safe, clean room. Friendly staff. Denny's right next door. Shuttle to airport - very easy. March 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Air Conditioning didn't work weel Although air conditioner was turned on, it was very very very hot inside. It was turned on for cooling, however we felt like in sauna. March 13, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hospitality! Professional staff: everyone from the front-desk to the housekeeping, and maintanence crew. Even the over booling was handled very professionally. Great location considering acess to the airport, retail as well as corperate businesses. I reccomend Holiday Inn Express San Jose Costa Rica Airport for your next Costa Rican visit. Enjoy!!! WJGjr. March 6, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Great location, but to expensive. This Holiday Inn is a great layover hotel when flying in or out of San Jose. All is great but price jumped drastically from our previous stays and doubt we will stay again as it's simply to expensive. February 24, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 A Great Travel Stay This is a safe and excellent hotel. The location to the airport is priceless due to the early morning flights! Don't hesitate to choose this for your Costa Rica trips. February 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel! We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express near the San Jose, Costa Rica Airport at both the beginning and end of our recent trip. We were able to use our Priority Club points for the stay which was great. The staff was so helpful - both at check in and to help us navigate our way to downtown San Jose. Even the shuttle driver went out of his way to be helpful and gave us a hand drawn map of how to get to to the highway to the beach from the hotel. The room was very nice- typical for HIEX - very comfortable and clean plus good wifi. We really appreciated the free calls to the U.S. - and used it to talk to our kids. The breakfasts were delicious. Great coffee and lots of variety - something different every day. I especially appreciated the lovely fresh fruit every day plus several hot dishes to chose from. (The rice and beans were yummy!) We highly recommend this fine hotel and will stay there again on our next trip to Costa Rica. February 20, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by very hard bed the bed was very hard. Both myself and my wife had a very poor night's sleep. Would not stay again at this motel. February 6, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel, free international calling, wifi & breakfast This hotel isn't new, but is immaculate . Staff is extremely helpful. What's unique about this hotel is free international phone calls. There are two restaurants and a casino a few hundred feet from the hotel. Hotel is located right next to the airport for those having an early departure. Hotel sound proofing is excellent so you won't hear the planes. January 21, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Convient to airport The Holiday Inn Express is very close and convient to the airport. The room was clean and confortable. The pool was clean and refreshing. The breakfast was convient and has a good assortment. The employes were very friendly. January 16, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great in all aspects The personal is great, the make me feel better than home, the service was better than some intercontinental I staid. January 15, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Costa Rican Vacation Our stay at Manuel Antonio began and ended with overnight stays at the Airport Holiday Inn Express. The property and staff were efficient and eager to help. We highly recommend this hotel. January 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient & Comfortable My wife and I stay at the HI Express several times a year. The accomodations, location, and staff are all super. It is the closest hotel near the airport, and their shuttle works like a charm. Rosti Pollo is a great restaurant and only 100 m away. I recommend the HI Express near SJO without any reservations (pun intended). January 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding visit. Very much enjoyed my stay, and will schedule another visit next week. This property is excellent, the staff very helpful, and the bus to the airport timely and reliable. December 20, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Geat Hotel, Highly Recommend We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express the night before our flight from San Jose. Rooms were large with excellent bedding and TV. Free internet and free calls to anywhere in the world (had never heard of this before). The staff were great and our check in was very short and pleasant. The hotel is next to Denny/s and the Casino. We went to the Casino to loose some money. Wish we had stayed in this hotel longer. December 15, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Recent visit to San Jose Excellent staff. Hotel is great. Hotel is very close to the airport. Wth traffic during the day San Jose is at least 45 to 60 minutes. Is a great decision to book this hotel if you want to make it on time to your early flight since highway from San Jose to the Airport. is closed at night due do to repairs. October 28, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice The Holiday Inn Express is in a perfect location - convenient to the airport and also to a variety of restaurants within steps of the hotel. We had a family group utilizing multiple rooms the night upon our arrival into Costa Rica and again the night before our departure. The only thing better than the location of this property was the professional, efficient and friendly staff! October 19, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Airport Proximity Just a hop and skip from the airport, great place to stay between flights or late night arrivals. Make sure to look for the shuttle van at airport instead of taking a taxi. Friendly staff, clean room, and good breakfast. Pool looked tempting but had to leave early in the morning. October 19, 2012
