The hotel is convenient for doctor appointments at CIMA hospital and for shopping at Pricesmart. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sadly there is no refrigerators in the rooms. Otherwise, a nice place to stay overall.

Need to fix the shower head in room 617. No perks when checking in - no room upgrades, no free drinks, no bottled water in room. Did get free breakfast - not that great but it was free. Restaurant was decent, but just as expensive as eating in San Jose California.

Located in autopista Santa Ana, in the Escazu area within a beautiful restaurant complex filled w/ plenty of foodie choices (made to order) all just steps from this hotel which offers excellent service, stunning views and safe underground parking within the premises. The staff, housekeeping will accommodate cleaning according to your COVID specifications. Personally I found this option wonderful. Everyone is friendly and warm just looking to be helpful. I highly recommend this Holiday Inn. I will not hesitate to go back. If you stay please como prepared to tip generously not only regular staff but housekeeping. Please try out the restaurants in the complex . The food is amazing!!!!. Safe Travels!!!

Hotel is in a great location. When you get onto the floor to your room the carpets are beyond disgusting, it looks like it has never been cleaned, stains, dirt and just plain awful. Carpet in the room is SLIGHTLY better looking however I would not want to be barefoot on it at any point of time. The window had cracks in it along the whole length (we were on the 4th floor and it seems like a safety issue), no fridge in the room. Pool area was very dirty looking with wet towels around the are and noone there. Breakfast was regular: pastry, eggs, rice and beans, cheese and couple of fruits. Restaurant and front desk staff is very pleasant and kind, great service.

The room was super clean and comfortable. The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. It's close to Hospital CIMA and a shopping/restaurant complex. I only stayed one night to get a COVID test at the hospital 2 days before flying back to the US. It's very convenient for that purpose and it all worked out well.
