Aircon in our room was filthy and the food at supper time was served cold, a real health hazard. The outdoor pool was very nice and clean. Breakfast served was at least hot food and very average. The location of this hotel seemed to be in the central part of the city.

Dottie's place is a great simple hotel that has all your main ammenities for a great price. Pool is lovely, staff are great and it's a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast is only very simple and it's local breakfast food but there is a good cafe up the road and it's only a 300 metre walk to the larger shopping mall... More

There's only one Main Street in Butuan and this hotel is located on it. It is near the Robinson mall so location is not a problem. I stayed in a single room and could not sleep the first night because of a clacking sound from the air conditioner, that turned out to be dripping water onto the AC housing from... More

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
