Yes, I should have read the reviews and BELIEVED THEM, but I decided to take my chances since the price was right. This hotel is, without a doubt, the worst that I've stayed at while touring the Visayas. I was at first struck by the total lack of maintenance to the building. The lobby hadn't been painted nor cleaned in... More

My friends and I visited Bohol for four days and chose La Roca because of the low cost. While we have seen gross and unhealthy boarding house rooms in Manila, Hotel La Roca makes them seem like the Shangrila in comparison. This place is the dirtiest, most dysfunctional hotel I've ever stayed. The room had bugs, no water, no working... More

Have you been to a place that didn’t do justice to the photos and not in a good way? That’s how Bohol La Roca Hotel is. It looked so beautiful in pictures I almost didn’t recognize it in person. Bohol La Roca Hotel is considered as a 2-star hotel. Location wise it is perfect; just 10 minutes away from Tagbilaran... More

We've spent 4 nights at this hotel and it was a nightmare. We were probably the only guests in it as we never saw another face save for the staff. The Deluxe room looks like it was last refreshed 20 years ago with crackings on the walls and ceiling. The warm water was never there althought it was supposed to... More

My family and I stayed here in March. In all honesty we would have been more comfortable sleeping in a homeless shelter. The place is like a set from a scary movie. It hasn't been painted or repaired in over 20 years. The room was disguisting. Nothing worked and it was the dirtiest place I've ever stayed. There were huge... More

It has a potential to be a great place to stay, it has a nice pool and grounds, but it looks like no one really cares about it anymore. Our room was full of spider web hanging everywhere, and the bathroom didn't look clean at all either. We are used to cheap hotel rooms in developing countries, but we moved... More
