We stayed here for one night on the way out of CR and I am all for roughing it- camping, staying inexpensively, etc....however, this felt very dirty to me. The walls looked filthy, I wore my flip-flops the whole time (and I love being barefoot) and I was really worried to sleep on the very old mattress even after I...

As the title states this place is comdfortable, quaint, near the airport, clean, very friendly staff, decent small breakfast, and they provide a shuttle included in the price of the room to or from the airport. I like staying here if I arrive late at night, have a breakfast and go about my business the next day.

Great for staying one night. We stayed here before going to the airport. Clean and basic. Free breakfast. Free wi fi. No AC but had fans. It's low season so there's not many people. The only downside is you can hear noise from outside the room or from the street. When we stayed the noise started at around 6am but...

We weren't around long enough for breakfast, but we had quick, accurate and honest service. We spent our last night in CR here and even after arriving late into the evening, still found a wonderful place to walk safely, eat dinner and walk back to kick back and sleep until our flight.

We stayed here on our first night when we landed at midnight. Then again when we departed CR. The first night was booked through agoda.com. We made our second reservation through the front desk. We said we would be leaving well before breakfast and could we get a reduced price. We were given a nice double bed room for $50....

It felt like a prison cell. The walls were a strange patchwork of dreary colors. It didn't feel clean inside, and the cost was comparable nice hotels in the area. We cancelled the last two nights and changed to a hotel that was also near to the airport. The staff were very nice, so giving a bad review was hard...

This place is tops! Staff were super friendly and extremely accommodating. I stayed the evening with my two pooches. I will recommend this beautiful place to everyone! Would have been nice to stay longer. Lovely breakfast and little garden and park across the road for the dogs to go. Thank you to the wonderful staff of Melrost! Will definitely be...

Great location close to airport with shuttle service. Rooms were comfortable and the staff was professional. Breakfast was wonderful and they made accommodations for breakfast on our second stay which was our flight out of Costa Rica which was early. This was a great stay.
