If you want a decent, comfortable, stress-free, reasonably priced place to stay in Butuan City, then stay away from Dottie’s Place. What was once mentioned with affection by veteran trekkers in that part of the world, Dottie’s Place has slid into the seediness of things and is now showing its crabby, old age. The service is patronizing and downright snooty.... More

I came to Butuan for a 5-day fieldwork filled with endless road-travel and tiring days. Thanks to the clean and relaxing Dottie's Place, I was able to taste a bit of fun for the week. Their staff are warm and accommodating. The food is, well I guess, average. The rooms are clean. The swimming pool is nice. The lighting is... More

Glad my stay was only only for an overnight accommodation. First I was given a room at the very end of the hotel, upon entering turned on the a/c unit but after approx an hour it was not yet cooling so i requested that I be transferred to another. The new room likewise has an old dilapidated a/c unit, barely... More

Pity how a once great place can turn so bad. Lack of maintenance was apparent shining in the eye: windows with a broken lock, shower in need of a fix, producing smelly water (although that can be issue with the Butuan water company), bathtub I am not going to use due to it's state, water leaking at the fountain (wife...

This looks like a decent hotel, but lacks either the will or management to be one. The first room we checked into had no hot water and a huge hole in the bathtub rendering it unusable. Well, OK, we've spent time in the Philippines before and realize that standards can be different there. We call the desk in the morning... More

average place but staff are very helpful. didn't have a phone in my room. i think the place is overdue for a refurbishing due to its tired lockers & furniture (inside the room) as well as the toilet and shower i think a lot needed to be done to re-energise the place.

Appreciated getting a room on short notice, but not at the cost. Went to Dottie's Place on a recommendation of "best in Butuan City." A sad commentary on the state of local hotels. Air conditioner was anemic, half the lights burned out, room was right on the highway, with accompanying traffic noise all night, breakfast menu not just extremely limited... More

From the time I checked into my room till the time that I actually could relax in a minimally decent room was almost an hour an a half. I had to change rooms three times. The so-called deluxe suite had a shower that did not work at all. The handle literally came off in my hand. The two chairs in... More
