“Very nice accomodation in Baguio City!”
Reviewed April 9, 2012

Stayed here on the 5th to 7th of April 2012, that was holy week. Their location is perfect. Just a walking distance to Burnham Park, SM Baguio, Baguio City Market, and lots of restaurants and groceries stores. It is along the busiest Session Road wherein at night, the area is too crowded and alive (what I loved the most). La Brea is located on the 4th, 5th, and 6th floors. You have to climb up to the second floor where the elevator is located to bring you to the reception at the 4th floor. Once we get out of the elevator, this chubby girl (sorry for the description hehe) approached us with a very warm smile. There was also the moreno and tall guy who is always welcome for every guests needs. The room is definitely clean. The room is not air conditioned but with electric fan. Anyway, you don't need any AC since it's really cold in Baguio. We went there during the holy week season but still we were not able to use the fan especially at night because of low temperature. The room has a cable tv and hot and cold shower. We stayed at the 6th floor. WIFI is good. One advantage of this accommodation is its accessibility to jeepney terminals going to different tourist spots in Baguio. I give this hotel two thumbs up!! And definitely, my next trip to Baguio, I'll surely stay here.

PROS:
1) The location is great! It is along lower Session Road. It is in the heart of Baguio City.
2) Transportation is very accessible so basically no worries commuting to tourist spots
3) The room has at least the basic amenities like hot/cold shower, tv, toiletries and fresh towels.
4) Great staff! Friendly, helpful and accommodating.
5) The price is just right for a budget traveler.

CONS:
!) No elevator on the 5th and 6th flr (only up to 4th level) so it's kind of tiring to go upstairs after a long day out. Even worse if you bought vegetables and sweets and it's heavy to carry it all the way up. In Baguio, it is not unusual if you tend to buy these stuff because it is cheap.
2) Bathroom looks dirty. What makes the bathroom look dirty is the tile grout which looks old and unsightly and no amount of cleaning would make it look good. It need to be replaced.

So if you're looking for just a place to sleep with a tight budget and you would be out most of the time, this is the right one for you. However, if you're looking for a cozy, comfortable and feel good Baguio experience where you would also like to spend more time in the room to relax, unwind and get more sleep, you won't find it in this place.

before check in, check the room of your choice if it's to your liking. Staff are friendly and nice however in a bunch of good apples, you're bound to find one bad apple. tha's one chinito guy in the nite shift who has a dull and blunt personality. arrogantly snobbish. Actually he shouldn't be at the front desk in the first place..

Me and five of my friends stayed at La Brea Inn last Feb 10-12. It's kinda difficult to look for the place since it was located on top of Yellow Cab. One has to climb to the 2/F in order to take the elevator going to the 4/F. La Brea Inn is located on the 4/F and our room is on the 5/F. Downsides: (1) if you have heavy bags, you have to lug it around while you take the stairs since there's no elevator from the ground floor. (2) The bathroom/comfort room also stinks. I think it has something to do with the drainage system or the tiles itself. (3) They don't make up the room when the guests are not around since we have to request from the front office/reception area to take out our trash.

Our reservation is good for 4 people but they were able to squeeze 2 more in one room only. When we checked in, 2 very efficient ladies immediately set-up 2 extra beds, mats, pillows and blankets. We made the reservation weeks prior to the check-in date. We would appreciate it if the room was prepared ahead of time since they already know there are 6 of us coming in. We love the location of the place because it is surrounded by restaurants, ice cream houses and bars. It's also a walking distance to Burnham Park and Baguio Cathedral. It's as if everything is just within a few steps.

The staff was very accommodating as well. They gave us a flyer with the list of places that we should go and offered tips how to get around the city. For people who like to drink something hot first thing in the morning, they offer hot water for Php 2/ cup. The front desk/reception is open 24 hours. In terms of security, they have cameras all over the place.

The price we paid is worth it. We recommend this to tourists traveling on a budget.

Me and my wife stay here in la brea for 3 nights (dec25-28). one thing is good in la brea is they treat there guest so nice and everything you should know in baguio will be told upon your check in. location is also the best! you dont need to worry about your food. bar's and resto's are everywhere..

Our bed, pillows, toiletries and restroom is clean. hot shower is also good at first the shower is not that strong so i call there desk line to check our shower in a matter of minutes our concern is attended.

Aside from shower, flush and sink water is good. TV and electric fan is also available in the room. Hot water is also available you only need to call there desk line. Hot water cost P6.00 per cup. WIFI is also available up to 6th floor and speed is fast!. (last review they said WIFI is only in 4th floor). regarding the elevator, as its only serving until 4th floor, you can now request to the front desk to unlock so that you can used the lift temporarily up to 6th floor.

Lastly, the very best thing in la brea is SECURITY! you can leave your things in your room with no worries. security camera's are installed in every corner. Us, we stay in 6th floor.

We will be back in this hotel! cheap and sulit!



Friendly tips: In baguio as it's very in demand during holiday's. be careful to PICKPOCKETS specially to crowded places.

Room Tip: Request a room with windows

My mom and I stayed at the la Brea inn , last Nov.4-6,2011 . Our room was located at the 5thfloor of the hotel . I agree with some of you that its a little bit tiring when going back to La Brea because their elevator only serves 2nd-4thflr. but on the positive side, we just take it as an exercise :) Anyways, we got the Standard queen room worth P1100 . The room was clean , though they did'nt have blanket,we just request from the staff for a charge of P20 each . It was worth it because the blanket really give us warmth. The bathroom was ok, not really dirty, but presentable enough. They also provided towels and soap. The location was BEST! We really loved its location , because its near in almost all the tourist spot . Across it, was the jeep terminal in going through the attractions. Also the Baguio Market and the Church is only walking distance. There are lot of restaurants to choose from, when you're going to eat, and other convenient stores. Their Staffs are friendly , specially one 'kuya' there who works during night time, since we dont know his name, we call him "Kuya Smiley" because he always smile :D All in all, I would Suggest you stay in this hotel . If i would go back in baguio, I would stay here again.
