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...

I stayed at this place some time around September,2015. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Clean and comfortable rooms. In door parking and delicious breakfast. It's a great deal for that price. They even offer pick up and drop off to the Juan Santamaria airport. Can't ask for more.

I needed a place to stay near the airport before heading south. This place was perfect! They picked me up from the airport, upgraded me to a double room for free, and were very welcoming. Breakfast was delicious! The bed was surprisingly very comfortable. Great place to stay!

We narrowly missed our flight and ended up looking for a place to stay and are glad we chose this place. Cheap enough and nice enough to not be any worry. The rooms were clean. Breakfast is served on the balcony that surrounds the building, it was good. Within walking distance to a large mall where we enjoyed watching Batman...

I was not expecting much for the price of my room. Not a bad place for a quick stay on the way in or out of country.easy walk to the mall. I appreciated the free shuttle to the airport. Staff were helpful.Breakfast was filling. Not a highlight but no complaints either.

We chose a cheap spot to stay the night before our flight back to the United States. This place is exactly what you should expect for 40 or 50 bucks in a Third World country. The people who complain are a bunch of whiny babies. If you pay for a cheap hotel in a Third World country, I guarantee you...

Great hotel close to the airport. I wouldn't say it has the same North American "Bed and Breakfast" feel to it but instead is a quaint hotel with a friendly vibe. The staff is helpful, good-natured and English speaking (if this is important to you). Our room was spacious with 2 double beds, towels, and a coffee maker with coffee...

From the outside, this B&B does not look at all special. Inside there is a good welcome. The owners are very helpful, The room was basic but comfortable enough and the shower area was good. Outside the room was a shady verandah with tables and chairs. The internet connection was reasonable. We walked to a new mall, 10 minutes away...
