“This Hotel Needs Pest Control and Maintenance”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

My wife and I decided to stay here overnight last 19 Nov 2012. We are on our way to San Juan, La Union for a short break and to relax and feel the cool sea breeze. The staff on the front desk was ok. Typical gestures. The guard on duty helped us with our luggage and carry it all the way to our room as there was nobody there to help. After checking in, the card key was handed to us. So we went upstairs to our room, inserted the key but Lo and Behold... the key is not working. After several tries, I decided to go back to the reception. I informed the staff that the key was not properly setup. The poor guy tried to set it up. Then another staff came to the rescue. At last he said it was now ok. He came out of the reception area, went upstairs leaving me in front of the reception puzzled. I followed him and at last the room was open. We went inside, checked the bathroom and saw molds on the wall and grout. I tried the sink and it was clogged. I opened the a/c and there it was, two cockcroach came out. There is no restaurant in this hotel. Breakfast was served in the hallway, infront of the reception area. This hotel is ok for an overnight stay. I don't recommend it for a long stay...

Its location may not be the best because its far from the tarlac city center (where SM is), but the value for money is unbeatable. And it is more quiet the farther you are from the city. I especially like the "coffee-all-you-can" at the hallway but I suggest they improve it and put coffee brewer instead of jars of powdered coffee. But I think they keep the hotel rates very low because of this. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The twin bed room for two people can actually fit 5 people (there's another sofa-like thing by the windows). There weren't any views though, just the garden. The only thing I didn't like was that the lobby and the breakfast area share the same space. And the area was small. A lot of people were standing waiting for tables to empty. We had to share our table to other guests at our stay. But because of the price, it more than makes up for it. The food selection was few but all were delicious. Overall, I'll stay here again when I'm in tarlac.

The place is cheap and clean versus other hotels in Tarlac. It's location is incide Hacienda Luisita and near the shopping complex.

Going around, the lack of street lights make it tough specially at night. Still, this is already the best you can get in the area.

The only other good alternative is La Maja Rica, which is cheaper but already far from the restaurants and supermarket.

The place is decent enough to stay and sleep in. The free breakfast is alright. Do not expect the comfort and amenities that you usually find in 3 star hotels. It is just an inn. I wouldn't even call it a suite!

I was there December of 2008. I just checked Oct 2010 since the dates in the choices can't go further than that.

I have stayed at this property a number of times over the last 3 years and have watched the property slowly lose its focus. The staff continue to be polite and courteous but they are not welcoming and friendly.

The maintainance of the rooms has decreased over the last few years and it is a concern.
As a international franchise standards must be maintained and adhered too. This property is not on track.

Breakfast offerings are good but limited. The restaurant next to the hotel is opened again and offers a decent selection of local and american foods. Prices are not bad.

If your staying for a few days take advantage of the local club and have a swim at the pool. Worth the 100 peso fee.

Not so long ago, I found myself in Tarlac.

I had to look for a clean but affordable place to stay and found Microtel Luisita.

For less than 2,500php a night, I was able to stay in a standard room.


I was pleasantly surprised that the room was of decent size and wasn't dated at all. The bed was also very inviting and comfortable. I was not a fan of the mirror behind the bed though as it gave me the creeps.

I'm happy to report that the bathroom though simple and basic was very clean. There was also no shortage of hot water.

Every room comes with a free breakfast coupon and due to limited space, breakfast is served at the lobby of Microtel Luisita. Service is buffet style and fares were quite standard but filling.

The only problem some guests might have with Microtel Luisita is its out of the way location. It is situated in a dead spot but Microtel Luisita does offer free shuttle service to the nearest commercial complex. Also, since Microtel Luisita's kitchen is not well-equipped, one has to order from nearby restaurants or settle for the vending machine when hunger strikes.

Overall though, Microtel Luisita was a decent comfortable stay in the middle of nowhere.

I've always been a fan of Microtel hotels because of their consistency of service and amenities all across their branches throughout the country. The thing I like most about staying with them is their fantastic beds which gives weary travelers the best sleep money can buy on the road. Tarlac Microtel is a good hotel choice whether on business or pleasure.
