Our family stayed here overnight. We find the hotel average but the rate for our room back then was also average, so I guess we were getting what we paid for. What we really appreciated during our stay was the friendly staff in the dining area.

This is just an average hotel to start with. The foos and rooms are nothing but very plain and ordinary. I foubd the mattress in my room to be very dusty, The outdoor pool however just made me like WOW. The function room near the pool is hard to access because it was raining when we had a meeting there.... More

Why invest in a hotel, and then employ third rate people ? I don't understand it, and they are aware that their reputation is in tatters ! We arrived and told them specifically that we wanted a room with a double bed. They offered me a promo room on the 3rd floor ( no lift ) so we walked up... More

We'e stayed there for more than a week. Reasons why me and my family hates the hotel because: 1.) When they cooked adobong manok for breakfast, we saw the chicken as hilaw. As in raw food. The outer part looks like cooked just because of the toyo. It still has bloods (color red and black) which means it ain't well... More

As I was here for a forum, I got to see the whole hotel. Yes, it was still undergoing renovations, but I find their renovations slow, as the lobby, toilets, and several others remain partially fixed. What they could have done was to completely fix it by phase, not having an incomplete makeover all over the place. The conference room... More

We stayed for the weekend & tried this hotel while we're in Surigao City. It happened to be under renovation at the moment. But it shouldn't be the reason why the tiles was not "shiny" upon entering. Anyway, I asked to check their room choices before deciding to pick Executive Matrimonial. The only available was in the 3rd floor and... More

After my flight was cancelled and getting stranded in Surigao due to a level 1 typhoon warning, I checked into what appeared to be a nice hotel. Quickly learned the Wifi did not work on the 2nd floor, so I needed to go to the lobby for internet access. Then after returning to my room I needed to contact the... More

Well, approaching two years since my previously listed review of the Gateway and with changes afoot I feel it time to post a further review as much for the benefit of the Gateway management, if they actually care that is, as well as the travelling public. Firstly the new restaurant, compared to the old one, is stunning and with new... More
