Reviewed October 27, 2013 via mobile

Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Affordable price & convenient location. Free 'set' breakfast
Outdoor noise however because of thin windows

Tv only has 7 or 8 channels.

Free wifi although not so reliable

Overall its a good choice in tarlac though

There aren't many great hotel options in the non-resort or major metro areas of the Philippines. This was a great find. It's relatively new from appearances. The rooms were perfect for a typical business traveler. The beds very comfortable ( which is often a problem in Asia ). Service was great. Air- condition and utilities perfect except for wireless Internet which is a problem everywhere in this part of the world. The restaurant serve local fair .

Judging from the number of Japanese guests which I am sure must come from a local factory they agree with me.

I am sure I will use it when I return

Hotel front desk personnels are courteous and warm but not very knowledgeable about the city.
Free shuttle service to certain points is a plus but requires advance notice.
There is a free so-so oily breakfast. Very cheap brands of corned beef, bacon and sardines are served. Not expected from a fairly good hotel. Limited to 3 choices only.
Make-up room service is fast though there are ants in the room.
There is daily free bottled water. Water pressure is very low, observed yellowish flow during our stay.
There are two menus in the room, take note of the food price differences in some items, check the updated ones for budget concern.
Doorman is not attentive to guests.
Service is fast. People are warm. Good value for money.

I would just like to share what i experienced while staying at l square hotel tarlac city at room 306, I checked in july 12, 2013 around 6pm, the following morning 8am i tried to take a shower there was no water, even the sink, the toilet bowl did not have water, i reported this several times, since i have a 8:30am meeting i had to leave without taking a shower even brushing my teeth,and i found out all other rooms have water in their cr,,, my female companion i left in the room tried again and again informing their staff about our situation,, the remedy they gave her is providing us with 2 buckets and 2 5 gallon water containers, those used for water dispenser,,, another remedy they suggested is to bathe in another room located at the ground floor, (our room is in the 3rd flooor) take note,, we cannot transfer to another room,,,,,I arrived after my meeting around 9:45, again the situation wasnt remedied,, NO WATER IN THE COMFORT ROOM,,,, i have to lift the gallon of water just to flush the toilet, i asked can we transfer ,, fully bookeD THEY SAID( now, where was the room they suggested we took a bath in at the ground floor) frustrated we left and went to sm tarlac ( I haven’t bathe yet ) to meet with friends, we came back around 5pm, behold the water came back in our room,, but we checked out anyway,, I paid 2250 when I checked in,, and i was again billed 450 for late check out,,,hayzzzzzz,,,,overall the rooms were nicel, the food superb, the a bar at the 4th floor staff when we drank were very attentive,,,but everything went downhill early morning
then after everything no one was apologetic, or offered explanation, it would be nice if they would at least told us what went wrong,,instead we were billed for our late check out

Room Tip: check your comfort room for water geessshhhhhhh

Dear Guest,

L SQUARE HOTEL would like to thank you for choosing to stay at our hotel here in Tarlac City . Taking the time to leave us your feedback is highly appreciated.
We are glad to hear from you that “overall the rooms were nice”. Your comfort and satisfaction are of utmost important to us. Also, your comment that “the food was superb and bar at the 4th floor staffs when you drank were very attentive”. It was great to know that you were gratified with our services.

We are concerned to learn more of your dissatisfaction regarding our water supply and lapses in other services. We fully understand on how disturbing the condition must have been for you that you were not able to take a shower before you leave the hotel for personal transaction. You have also requested to transfer to another room but unfortunately the hotel was full-house that time. With that, please accept our sincere apologies on your all concerns. We appreciate you bringing this matter to our attention as this is our best resource for improving guest satisfaction.

However, you might be pleased to know that we are currently in the process of upgrading our facilities especially our water supply to provide better services
Again thank you and we do hope that the above issues will not deter you from choosing us again as your preferred choice of accommodation in Tarlac City.

Sincerely,
L Square Hotel Management Team

we booked via phone after checking out tripadvisor reviews. the receptionist who answered was friendly and considerate. aside from giving a discount on the published room price, she allowed us early check-in.

four of us (2 adults and 2 kids) stayed overnight in the triple room. although it felt claustrophobic because the room had no window, the room was spacious enough, clean, and comfortable. provided were cable tv, air conditioning, tea-making facilities, also towels and toiletries but no ref or in-room safe. water pressure from the shower was steady but not very strong, probably because the shower head needed fixing.

coming from the north, grand l square hotel is located on the right side of mc. arthur highway, near the luisita entrance/exit to SCTEX. it is closer to luisita complex than sm tarlac. there is a 7-11 across the hotel.

overall, a conveniently located, pretty good and newish hotel, with friendly, attentive and accommodating staff. the 4-story hotel has no elevator though.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a window

Staff - welcoming. Very prompt in responding to requests.

Hotel - Relatively new. Clean. 4 floors with no elevator though the stairs height is comfortable.

Location - Near the mall (SM Tarlac), about 5 min drive.

Breakfast - Set menu: fish, bacon or pork tocino with egg, fried rice and coffee/juice.

Room. The good part is that it is clean, big enough, really comfortable bed and pillows. The bad part is that the water pressure isn't good. Only half of the big (approximately 8x8 inches) shower head emits water, I believe this is due to the water pressure, not enough to really disperse water. Also, our room was facing the street, and since this is campaign season in the Philippines, you'll clearly hear vehicles with loud speakers playing campaign jingles almost the whole day.

Room Tip: Choose a room NOT facing the street, will definitely be more quiet.

After a lousy experience at Consuelo Hotel in Lingayen, we decided to just go home instead. But at nearly midnight, we were aching for a good rest. I checked out online the available hotels in Tarlac and chanced upon Grand L Hotel. A pleasant voice answered our call and made the reservation. When we got here, the room had the AC on already. A bell hop was waiting to bring up our stuff and the room was spanking clean. At P2250 for an executive deluxe room, it was so much better than the P2800 we were being charged for a filthy room at Consuelo. Pillows and bed were nice. There's hot and cold water, free bottled water, nice, clean towels, and flat screen TV. Free Breakfast for two is until 10 am. All the staff is very courteous. Food is nice and there is brewed coffee. The only down side is that it's along the highway so when the streets become busy, one can hear the vehicles passing by.

Room Tip: Avoid the street side rooms.
