The accommodating staff would probably be this Inn's best asset. The room was okay and proce was reasonable (we were assigned a room without a window but its okay coz we only needed it to place our bags and to sleep overnight).

Wifi was usually strong in my room. Good breakfast, nice lobby and dinning area. Looks to be a reasonably new property, plain and simple, clean. The only complaints about...

The staff was extremely helpful and kind. They were doing the best they could. We booked a motobike through them so it made things easier and our laundry was done perfectly. The beds were ok and the room fine to sleep. Bathroom small and old.

It's a budget hotel, but a perfectly decent option if you need to stay in the city. The immediate area isn't great (not many restaurant or shopping options very close) but it's conveniently near to airport and ferry port. Breakfast is included and good value (Western or Filipino) but service can be a bit slow to arrive. Rooms are simple...
