The Holiday Inn Express Santa Ana is just what you'd expect from the brand. The staff are friendly & helpful and the property is well maintained, very clean and pleasant throughout. For the price it probably can't be beaten! Location is good, being close to a number of shops / restaurant, although I'm not sure there's anything touristy nearby (I...

Overall I think you could do a lot worse, but frankly I wish we had stayed elsewhere. THE LOCATION If you have business or some other reason to be nearby, then the location is actually quite nice. There are a lot of nice restaurants within a very short walking distance. There is a very nice little grocery right across the...

Across the street is a market to buy groceries and a few strip malls with a variety of restaurants (the Indian restaurant is very good). The hallways can be noisy - if...

If you are traveling to Costa Rica to see its countryside and don't want to pay higher prices or stay right downtown, consider traveling outside to this suburban location. The breakfast that is included is generous and delicious, a fine introduction to food in a country whose best attributes do not include food. This Holiday Inn has a small gym,...

If you are planning a visit to Costa Rica, I would strongly recommend the Holiday Inn Express Forum at Santa Ana. There are several reasons; first and foremost, the staff there are real friendly and very personal.
