“won't go back”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

overall experience was poor. my room does not have a window and it smells like cigarette smoke and muggy. the linens are not immaculate white and the bed foam smells sour, too. the acu is noisy and the room attendants are also noisy while cleaning adjacent rooms. room service is also poor.

I was checked-in @ Rm.63 on my unexpected trip to Cabanatuan last month and I was so dissappointed the way they manage the check-out guest. Just a POOR MANAGEMENT I SHOULD SAY. Staff needs more orientation from management on how to give proper information to thier guest. Doors on my surprised they used a penny ? wat the HECK is that? . How can you trust that kind of Hotel .. Well ..I dont extend my stay that should be longer than 2 days. I checked off and find another Hotel thats the best way I can do not to ruin my days.

The short version of my review is simply....DO NOT GO THERE !
I booked a SUITE for 3 days, On arrival I was taken to an EXECUTIVE room (They don't have Suites). This room was dark and musty and the bathroom smelled like a sewer. It was about 25 square meters in size, The window was a mere 50cm by 75cms and opened up to an undercover driveway. The AirCon was a relic from the 80's with enough power to maybe cool a toilet cubicle.
Not a single Drawer or Cupboard to unpack things into. Then to my disbelief....NO DOOR KEY. You could lock yourself in but could not go out and leave the door secured.
It was about now that my patience ended. The staff changed my room for a slightly better one which at least did have a Lockable door with a key and the AirCon looked more recent although not much more efficient (barely adequate).
Although still not satisfied I was resigned to staying here 3 days. Most accommodation in Cabanatuan was booked out.

As I was to soon learn this Hotel is used by locals for "Discreet Meetings". You can basically rent the room by the hour. You just drive your vehicle into the driveway....det some keys from the guy at the entrance.....drive to your room....park you car under the room....close the roller door and go upstairs and ??????? ( I am sure you get the picture). Must admit it is a great setup. Sneak off with the mistress ....your car is out of site....Have your fling....and only pay for the time you use the room.

So as you can imagine it gets a bit rowdy between 11pm and 4am with all the coming and going. These "dog boxes" of rooms are not exactly sound proof..Not that it matters much about the noise.....there was no way to get a good nights sleep on these beds anyway.....not designed for sleeping !!!!

If that is not enough to make you look elsewhere then keep in mind its located on a busy road and more or less 2-3 kms from anywhere descent. There is a Jollibee franchise next door which is open 24/7. You also have a Hotel Menu for room Service which....surprise surprise....it exactly the same as Jollibees Menu. {Jollibee is a Fast Food franchise....basically burgers and Fried Chicken.....Just like a McDonalds or Burger King with the only difference being that they have managed to make the food taste even more insipid and bland that the others},

Best part of our stay here was CHECKING OUT and Walking out the door. From what I can gather ALL HOTEL SOGO in Philippines are the same. You can bet your sweet bippy that from now on ...."We will NOGO to any HOTEL SOGO"
