“So-so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

If you just want to spend about less than 600 pesos/night on a place to live while in cdo, then you might wanna try it here. Everything about it is really just on the average level. It has a good location, accessible. I usually stay here if i come to cdo on a tight budget. The last time i went there that was july 2013, they had this promo of 500 pesos/night in all rooms every mondays-wednesdays. Im not sure if it's still available up to this time though..

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

Spent one night here on the way back to Manila from Camiguin.

Note that this place now has a new name. It's currently called the Mardale Pension House.

- No elevator, but staff can help carry your bags to the room.

- Basic features in the room: bed with not so thick mattress, table and chair, dresser and cabinet, small non-lat screen TV, airconditioning

- The bathroom was bigger than I expected, compared to those in other pension houses in the Philippines. Water pressure in the shower was a bit weak, but there's a pail and dipper provided.

- There's free wi-fi but the signal is weak in the rooms. Better signal near the stairs and at the lobby. There are couches near the stairs where you can sit while accessing the wi-fi.

- In the center of the city, so no problem with public transport. Lots of taxis and jeepneys passing by. Also walking distance to fastfood restaurants, convenience stores, bars and cafes.

- Staff, especially at the front desk, are quite helpful in giving directions and advice on what to do/see, where to eat

- Really cheap, less than PhP 1000 a night

- Would recommend it for those on a budget or those just staying overnight in Cagayan De Oro.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

I stayed here last year, so imagine my confusion when I couldn't find it for my solo trip this year. I discovered that they have changed the name to Damarle Inn. Despite the change, they still have the same good quality of accommodation and service. It's a walking distance to divisoria and if you're the eccentric type, you can explore the surrounding area for good dining places, variety shops, etc. Street foods are lined up along the street near the inn, so don't be afraid to try them out: hey, be adventurous!

What I like about this place is its cleanliness and nice smell-- I'm really smell sensitive so this quality is a plus... Totally worth my money.

This is your basic, clean, air-conditioned room with no big frills. There was free Wi-Fi, and a nice little convenience store in the lobby. No elevator, so be prepared to hoof it up some stairs. Great value for the money, not a bad location for a disshevelled third world, second rate city. Walking distance to local markets, and fun places to see all up and down the street. Nobody bothered me at all, even though I stood out like a sore thumb. I liked it.
