We were just looking for a place to stay (overnight) just to unwind. We were looking for a simple place to stay even if it is within the Metropolis. What's important is the place is comfortable, within the budget, and can give us the relaxation that we need after a very busy week from work.
Surfing the internet has a big factor in helping us to choose what and where and that's the reason why we ended up picking Lemon Tree Inn to have our simple, pseudo-gateway even for just a day.
They have actually an on-going promo and their Deluxe Room costs P2,300 instead of P4,000 plus. At first we're a bit hesitant because the location of the Inn is right across a hospital. It is not near to any shopping mall or restaurants unlike other famous hotels wherein you can actually walk from your hotel going to a mall or a restaurant. But come to think of it, we decided to stay in a hotel for the weekend not so we could go to some shopping center but to relax. Meaning most of the time we'll be staying inside the room pigging out with some take-outs and watch T.V. noise free.
The moment we got there, everybody is really nice to us. Starting off from the reception area until we reached our room. We came a bit early the checking time but we were led to their Lounge located in the second floor. They actually have an LCD T.V., a sofa, and free use of internet while waiting for our room to be ready.
The room was quite small but very clean and organized. The room has microwave, plates, utensils, glasses, mugs and a small refrigerator. The room has also an LCD T.V., a cabinet, safe, small dresser, sufficient lighting, alarm clock, air-con and a phone. The bathroom may be small but it is also spick-and-span.
The Inn doesn't have a lot of amenities like fitness center, swimming pool, in-house restaurant however, you may access their WiFi for an additional P100 good for 24 hours, and an additional P200 if you want to use their DVD player. We wanted to use the internet but decided to not anymore because of the additional fee.
Since they don't have an "in-house restaurant", they made a portfolio and compiled the places that you can go to. They have a restaurant listings that are located within the vicinity and they allow food delivery to the Inn without charging extra. They'd also be the one to contact the restaurant and connect it to your room.
Also, before I forget, the P2,300 a night comes with breakfast courtesy of Figaro. Don't expect too much because the breakfast is really little. My friend and I even ordered additional food because we didn't get satisfied. However, it didn't spoil our stay there because we didn't really expect that it'll be grand like those continental breakfast like the other hotels are serving. As a matter of fact, some hotels or inns with the same rate don't give out free breakfast.
Overall, it was really a pleasant experience we had. Although we already suggested (via survey) if they could throw in free WiFi and use of DVD player since there wasn't anything else to do there especially if their guests just want to stay inside their Inn instead of making their Inn just a place to sleep in.
Rooms on the south side are quieter but don't have any sort of scenery
