It felt like a prison cell. The walls were a strange patchwork of dreary colors. It didn't feel clean inside, and the cost was comparable nice hotels in the area. We cancelled the last two nights and changed to a hotel that was also near to the airport. The staff were very nice, so giving a bad review was hard...

Great location close to airport with shuttle service. Rooms were comfortable and the staff was professional. Breakfast was wonderful and they made accommodations for breakfast on our second stay which was our flight out of Costa Rica which was early. This was a great stay.

Wonderful place to start and end our trip to Costa Rica. The driver picked us up at the airport and delivered us to the Melrost B&B. On our departure, the same driver took us to the San Jose Airport at 4 AM so that we could catch our early morning fight back to the USA. Staff was cheerful, helpful and...

The front desk was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were good for the price. Free wifi, breakfast and shuttle service to the airport. A convenient and good stay for accessibility to the airport with a short walk to downtown Alajuela for some shopping and food.

Clean, convenient place to stay if you have an early flight to catch the next day. They offer free shuttles to and from the airport even early in the morning and its 5 minutes away from the airport. Very friendly people too.

From the moment we were picked up to come to Melrost, we felt welcome and well taken care of. The owners and staff were very kind and helpful. The property is beautiful and fairly quiet despite being only a few minutes from the airport. Breakfast on the veranda was a special treat as the flowers nearby were visited by hummingbirds...

I took a late night flight to Costa Rica and this hotel was perfect due to the distance. The hotel is basic and in an odd location but the service is great. The front desk person was very informative. The breakfast was very basic, and bland. I would recommend this place for a late night flight.
