Interaction with Guests
Depends on their arrival time & how busy my day has been, but I always take a few minutes to welcome the guests & answer their questions!
It is a very small town with a Church, School & a park that used to be a vast coffee plantation.
It is very safe area, you can go out at anytime!
Walking distance there is a Casino with Live Music, 5 Restaurants & all Rent a Car offices.
Domestic Flights, Private Shuttle or Public Transportation (Taxi & Bus) very easy to get going to any destination in Costa Rica!
Other Things to Note
You can always ask Johnny first!
I expect guests to relax & get some rest while they get set to start their vacation or depart CR!
Please see my first review as I stayed here two times throughout my stay in Costa Rica. I highly recommend this place!
It was not so easy for the taxi driver to find the place, but maybe he was new in the branch.
Everything was as i expected for this price, Johnny is very pleasant and i sleep well and cashed my airplane to New York at 07:00
At the San Jose Costa Rica Airport Lodge, the name says it all. These simple, low-frills accommodations are so close to the airport that you could walk there if you wanted, although laid-back host Johnny was kind enough to call a cab on our behalf. Also within walking distance is a Denny's, for anyone craving an American diner-style breakfast experience before taking off for home or for other parts of Costa Rica. Lighter sleepers easily disturbed by light and noise might consider that there was a bit of both to contend with, at least during our stay. Some in our party were bothered, while others slept like babies, so perceptions will vary. All-in-all, the place had the vibe of a youth hostel- a good, basic place to stay on the first or last night in Costa Rica when proximity to the airport can be a comfort of its own.
I felt welcome but the host was not friendly; conversation was often full-stop. I was the only guest and did not feel as though I could openly ask about bus routes/the neighborhood/local advice. Otherwise, the bedroom was clean and there was a nice porch area on the second floor to sit when it was raining. Breakfast was fine, fruit and toast and coffee, and there is a nice park right across the street. It does not feel like the safest area but there are some nice and diverse restaurants within walking distance.
