Writing this review in a room, April 2014. Stayed here with my fiance', a resident of the area. We recieved the provincial rate, which made it bearable for a few days. However, after a week I am fed up with my stay here. 1 Hot shower in a week! Dirty rooms which are cared for differently each time we returned... More

We chose this hotel for many reasons...a safe parking space, peaceful place located in a National H-way, one of the "class A" hotel in the city, among others. And as a first-timer, we're satisfied with our stay. A hotel staff helped us with our things to our assigned room. We had an "executive king", as I remembered...it's so spacious and... More

This is one of the "class" hotels in Butuan located not in the busy part of JC Aquino Ave. The rooms are spacious with amenities like free wifi, swimming pool, fitness center and restaurant. It really has the potential to be one of the bests had it been for a better service. When you enter the hotel, nobody is there... More

We had the opportunity to stay here for a few days! It is a peaceful, "secluded" place in the heart of Butuan on J.C. Aquino. About PHP1,500/single room, but they're very nice! Hot water in the shower, good aircon, good TV's, nice beds, etc. Very clean. Beautiful pool with restaurant. Looks like a resort, but priced like a nice hotel.... More

Food, very bad. Service, non existent. If you are happy to watch clusters of staff mingling about chatting and completely ignoring the paying customers you will enjoy your stay here. The only reason I left the Almont Inland Resort to come here was because there is no wifi there, even though they advertise that there is. The Almont is far,... More

Dotties is one of the largest hotels in Butuan City, close to the airport and to the main road through Butuan. The pool is popular with visiting tourist, especially those that have kids and breakfast is served next to the pool daily. Rooms are average, bring your own pillows or you will have a stiff neck the next day. Food... More

The hotel is near the airport and the room was clean and neat. There's a flat screen TV with more than 50+ cable channels to choose from. Food via room service was good but the breakfast buffet can be improved. Overall for the price I paid (PhP1,000+) the service and accommodation was more than worth it.

Some rooms are new while some remind me of old hotels, afterall Butuan City is one of the oldest cities in Mindanao. What I juat dont like about the place is their service (waitressing, room service, front desk people) are inconsistent. One stay, im pampered but the next visit, i have to make an effort to follow-up on orders, especially... More
