We stayed at the Melrost for a week, then came back to spend one night before our flight home. Although the accommodation is 'no frills', the owners and staff were unfailingly helpful, running shuttles to and from the airport at all sorts of antisocial hours with no complaints and no charge - they even moved furniture into our room to...

Location was very good , close to airport in case you have an early flight, people were friendy, breakfast average, our room had a bad smell , I think it was the bedspread, the bathroom didn't have a place to put my shampoo ans shop, so just depend in which you are looking for!!!

Good value for your money. Free pick up at the airport and the breakfast was very good! The room is basic but very clean and spacious . We recommended the hotel to other people we met during our trip. Would stay again at this nice hotel!

This is a hotel very close to the airport with a free shuttle so in that respect, it's nearly perfect. And, it's cheap ($62.00/night). We did have a hard time as there was a big group of people talking on the veranda until 12 p.m. and they were allowed to....This really disrupted our sleep and the nearby neighborhood was a...

We stayed here the very first night we arrived in Costa Rica. The location is great for your first or last day as it is literally a 5min drive to the airport. The rooms are dated but Clean and quiet. The staff is very accomodating and helpful. They organised a transport for us and stored our bike boxes for 3...

We had a night to stay over close to the San Jose airport before flying on to Tamarindo. This B&B really filled the bill. They picked us up at the airport and took us back the next day. The room was spartan but decent. There is also a shopping mall close by where we walked over for dinner in the...

Been there for only few hours before my flight back from San Jose. The room was tiny, felt dirty, towels had an horrible smell. I would never recommend going there, paid 62$ for getting a filthy feeling... The staff and the shuttle were nice i have to say...

If your priority in choosing a hotel is as follows this is the hotel for you 1) Proximity to the airports - this is VERY CLOSE. 5 Minutes and the transfer provided at the hotel was a breeze and with a friendly driver. 2) Safety - I felt it was secure and in a decent area (I am a 40ish...

Noticed other reviews stating "clean", but honestly I wouldn't say that is their strong suit - nothing alarming, but many travelers will notice the dusty corners as we did. Airport shuttle pickup worked perfectly, and to be fair you should plan to contribute to the shuttle driver's tip jar on the console. Very helpful desk staff gave us a hand...

We stayed at Melrost B&B on our last night in Costa Rica. We had a ridiculously early flight time (6:00 am( but the staff very kindly arranged for the shuttle to be available for us at 4:am. This was too early for breakfast but the host packed us each a bag with a water and a banana. The room was...
