Stayed at this hotel for a few days exploring in San Jose - good location for exploring in the day but would not walk around the area at night. The hotel itself was very clean and the room spacious and comfortable.
The staff were helpful for advice and booking taxis.
Very good cheaper option in San Jose.

Room tip: Avoid walking around this area at night

What a great value! Very walkable to all the downtown attractions and lots of restaurants! The hotel was very clean with a great breakfast, which was included with the cost if your room. The hotel breakfast staff were wonderful! Very friendly and helpful with great service. The property is very safe and secure with a fenced parking lot and 24 hour security. Lots of San José Polce presence downtown, so enjoy walking the city. Just be smart about it and aware of your surroundings. There is a 24 hour restaurant, which was good, and casino on property. Word of advice.... Be cautious when asking the front desk to arrange transportation. They were going to arrange transportation that was going to cost $110 USD (round-trip) for a 20 minute ride to an attraction. I declined and used Uber for $14 USD (round-trip). Uber is very safe and affordable! Definitely use Uber in San Jose, it will save you tons of money. I'm not sure why the front desk didn't make that recommendation, but rather chose to arrange a very costly option. I also note that the front desk is only staffed limited hours. Overall a 4-star rating. Definitely recommend staying here!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights upon our arrival in Costa Rica. The location of this hotel in San Jose is excellent, within walking distance of many downtown tourist attractions.

We explored the shops and cafes on Central Avenue. No cars are allowed on Central Avenue (automobile traffic is allowed on cross streets so you still must watch out when crossing streets).

The shops and the street vendors gave us a wonderful opportunity to interact with the locals who throng downtown area during the day for shopping and hanging out in parks & plazas.

There are several cafes on central avenue where you can get a great view of the people and the activities from upper floors.

We also checked out the central market (Mercado Central) for its food stalls, medicinal shops, fish market and many more necessities for locals. The central market is closed on Sundays.

Be aware that downtown is not the nicest area of San Jose and empties out in the evenings.

Sleep Inn organized our airport pickup when we landed in Costa Rica for thirty US dollars. The hotel driver spoke decent English and provided us with a running commentary about the city as we traveled through the city to the hotel. It took us about 45 minutes mid-day to get to the hotel from the airport.

Taxis will charge about 25 dollars (they accept dollars) from the airport, and you will be mobbed by taxi drivers as you exit the airport.

The service at the hotel is good and everyone we encountered was very helpful. At the reception desk, they spoke good English and handled our check-in and checkout smoothly.

The room and the amenities are decent, not luxurious. This is not a luxury hotel. We spent minimal time in the room and had no complaints with any aspect of the rooms during our stay. Our reservation included breakfast, and they have a nice eating area for the buffet. The breakfast choices, while fewer than we are used to, included the typical items expected in a breakfast buffet. We liked their breakfast overall.

There is a casino adjacent to the hotel, on the same property. Th casino has a full-service restaurant, Magnolia. We had dinner in that restaurant on one night and liked their food and the service.

We did not spend any time on the casino games. The casino will change dollars to local currency and their exchange rate was reasonable (exchange rate at the airport is very unfavorable).

We explored downtown San Jose for a full day, all by walking around, and the location of this hotel is very convenient.

My first stay at this hotel and I was very pleased.
The receptionist checked me in quickly and gave me a spacious bedroom which was spotless. Even the carpet was clean which is a rarity in San Jose. My room had good A/C, mini-fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The bathroom was spotless, modern and equipped wiuth several amenities.
Despite other reports of a hard bed, mine was firm but comfortable. Good quality bedding.
The cable TV was only limited to Spanish language channels but this seems to be the norm in Costa Rica as a whole.
The security on the site is very good. High walls, and large gates circle the property. Generally the guards are very prompt in opening the gates but once or twice I had to whistle to get their attention late at night.
Breakfast was not fantastic but more than adequate to get you going for the day. With Covid protocols, they serve you either eggs or waffles but they have lots of extras like empanadas, fresh fruit, yougurt, and cheeze, and lots of excellent coffee. The restaurant staff were extremely pleasant and anxious to please their guests.
The location is good if you want to be downtown , and there are a few cafes, and bars in close proximity.
There was only one issue with my reservation. Their web site stated check-in was from 2 pm to 6 pm and i had a late flight arrival. I tried many times to email the hotel to advise them of my late arrival but I received no response. But when i arrived, it was absolutely not an issue as the guards let me in, and the reception was staffed. It just provided me with an little unneeded anxiety.
I will definately come back to the Sleep Inn for my next stay
