We stayed here for 2 evenings and the start and 2 evenings at the end of our Costa Rica trip. It is a clean and safe place and very good value. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here on the evening we arrived in Costa Rica and for the last two nights of our trip. We really liked this place for many reasons

1. It is really close to the airport and easy to find
2. The owners are really nice and helpful (e.g. with directions)
3. It was no problem to arrive late (10pm) or to leave early (5am)
4. The place was very clean - the room as well as the breakfast area and the hallway
5. The breakfast was very good (bread, spreads, egg, fruits, ...)
6. There were safe (free) parking options
7. It was a safe place to stay (we really hated all the safety measures in general in Costa Rica and particular in the towns and we never had any safety issues but apparently they are needed)
8. It was good value

I stayed on the beginning and end of my trip to Costa Rica - it's a great alternative to the chaos of San Jose and about a $5 cab ride from the airport in downtown Alajuela. The owners went out of their way to help me and other travelers schedule activities and were just plain friendly and interested in making sure all their visitors enjoyed their time in Costa Rica. The rooms are rather basic, like many in Costa Rica but very clean and comfortable and definitely a good value.
