Visiting my girlfriend in Tubigon meant a six night stay at the Monina RM Midtown Inn, the best hotel in town. Well it might be the best in town but don't expect too much. Making a reservation was a little difficult as I had no reply to my online request from their website. Several e-mails later and with a little help from my girlfriend all was resolved. A 50% deposit was requested which is a little difficult as this is a cash only establishment but that minor problem was also resoIved.
I had a deluxe room which was on the third floor. First problem for those with a large bag or case - its stairs only! There is nothing fancy about the room - it serves the purpose and nothing more. Nothing more needs to be said about the bathroom as it has been said before in other reviews! A bad idea all round! The air conditioner is too low to the floor and really is a little too small for the size of the room and takes a while to cool the room to 24-25 degrees. But the bed is comfortable enough. Don't expect the room to be cleaned everyday automatically! Ask and you may receive if you really want clean towels everyday.
The restaurant is open nearly all day subject to the vagaries of functions! The food is nothing fancy but it is good and tasty, helpings are sizeable. The price is very good by Australian standards. If you need wifi, it is available in the restaurant only, free of charge but you would not know as it is not mentioned anywhere in the hotel apart from a small sign in the restaurant. Ask the waiter for the security code to logon.
Staff were generally quite friendly at all times. It is only a short walk into the centre of Tubigon. Road noise from the main road can be intrusive at times.
Whilst the place could certainly do with a good deep clean and general tidy up, it is acceptable enough and certainly better than some dodgy motels I have stayed at in other parts of the world.
