We rarely go to Butuan, but for some reason local contacts of ours keep on suggesting Dottie's. The first time several years ago was a nightmare, rooms were filthy and worse of all the water that came out of the shower was brackish. We went a second time, and discounting the hookers hanging around downstairs, we thought that there were... More

I first came to Dotties 2 years ago. They have fixed some things since then. For example they have invested in new sheets and towels etc and the showers are fixed so you can discount the reviews from a couple of years ago describing unclean linen etc. Though clean and fresh they bought cheap stuff so the beds and pillows...

Location is great it's close to everywhere. The pool is a good idea for kids. Breakfast is great although the only thing missing is amenities not that great. Toilet seat was broken and air condition was not working properly Rate was reasonable

I once checked in this worst hotel with no tooth brush, no potable water available inside the room, unmaintained air-conditioning, poor internet, and all visitors basic need is very poor. In short, do not spend your time to stay here! hahahahaha

We used two rooms, one standard single and a Deluxe King (Double). Both rooms were entirely adequate with comfortable beds. Both had cable T.V. and A/C, telephone. The double had a mini bar. (Check the contents against the list when you first arrive, ours was missing several items which could have caused a problem at checkout.) The rooms decor is... More

Rooms are average, but the design of this hotel with a large pool is good. Services are weak and breakfast is simply are disaster. For Westerners and for a lots of Filipinos sometimes not eatable. They did not change during my for years in Butuan City.

As a group of nine, we stayed here for a little over a week. The food was good but always a very long wait. The rooms were basic enough, but clean and air con worked. I was in a room near the front of hotel so noise was an issue. Staff were friendly, meet a great security guard there always... More

We went here for a travel convention and I was surprised at how shabby the place was. The rooms I mean. The convention center was fine, and the lobby..but the rooms were small and poorly maintained. Not much I can say about this place. Just that we didn't even bother to stay overnight even if we paid for our extra... More

I visited Butuan City sometime in 2013 and stayed at Dottie's for a half and a month. The food was great especially the breakfast. The staff (beautiful receptionist) were accommodating and respectful. My only dilemma was the room access card. I have to request the latter for the reactivation from time to time. To avoid any inconveniences, ask first the... More
