I am referring to the newest sampaguita located along quirino. It is a budget accommodation yet the front desk personnels have the WORST customer service ever. They are very discriminating. We arrived @ 1pm and was advised check in is @ 2pm, however the room will be ready by 3pm. We waited but still unattended @ 4pm. I noticed a... More

My friend and I were so excited to see the place for we want to catch some sleep after our travel from Samal. As soon as we arrived, we were not immediately greeted by the people at the reception for they are chatting happily. When we made our way to be recognized, they gave us our keys and told us... More

I was visiting Davao for a festival. Like the place, but becareful of the taxi from the airport...he took me on a long route past some cemeteries when the map given by the airport authority showed a very short direct route. The friendly tourist guide advise me to walk to the highway and take the jeepney to Gaisano!!!

I wonder if they have changed the bedding from the last checked-out customers at all. The staff aren't accommodating nor approachable. There... More
