During college we frequent this hotel so the place is reminiscent of the good old days. In that period, the hotel is one of best hotels in the city and it's very accessible too. At present though, it not as good as it has been. The place shows how time passed, and it's not pretty to look. Aside from the... More

My initial thoughts on this place were that it was old and dingy. When you walk into the reception for the first time and it is not very cool, you could probably think that you were in for a bad stay. After a couple of days i got over that as we really didnt spend much time in the hotel.... More

It is an ideal place for business-related travels - affordable, a short walk to and from Robinson's Supermarket, Bo's coffee and a spa (I forgot the name), banks, restaurants, fruit stand, and bakery. Since it is along the highway, it is easy to get a multicab (main mode of transportation); but most establishments are few meters away. Gaisano is a... More

The only reason I have been in dotties place several times is because has open air place available in front of the rooms and the swimming pool and it is not expensive like the only other one in the city which provide the same commodity. For the rest I have to say that is not a place to go, it... More

stayed in this place for about 3 nights and if you are visiting this place, it looks extremely nice. the property is quite large and well laid out with the room circumferencing the swimming pool. But I guess, that is as far as it goes. it is a good hotel but really does need better care and servicing. the single... More

An old hotel, though it's clean. However I really don't like their rest rooms because it's old and not really nice. Towels are old already. Though I like it's accessibility ( pool side) They have a buffet breakfast full or flies everywhere. Most of the guests are from different government agencies. If plan to stay for an overnight only, and... More

We have been staying at Dottie's Hotel when in Butuan basically because there was no better choice before. The hotel is quite old and unfortunately it is not well kept. Old facilities can still look good with proper management but this is not the case for Dottie's. Beddings and towels are also old, color is a discolored white already. When... More

Stayed here just recently during typhoon "Seiang" , firstly the front desk staff were extremely rude, I'd booked two Suite rooms and was told they wasn't available! So they had given us standard executive rooms, I pointed out that I'd paid extra for suites, I was just told over and over again they wasn't available! After some discussion they agreed... More
