I recently stayed one night at Home Crest. I moved here from another hotel downtown, since I needed to be near the Ecoland bus station for my next-day travel to General Santos City. I booked the Junior Suite by phone, did not encounter any problems. I arrived at the hotel early. The place was fully booked that time, so they told me that I can only check in at 2 PM. They kept my luggage. Not really a bummer, since I can just literally cross the street to the SM City annex, which is just a minute's walk away. It's very convenient for those who need to get groceries or for last-minute shopping.
The Junior suite itself is a fairly large room, with a very comfortable king-size bed and lots of pillows - which I really appreciate. The room is clean, and is quiet, since it is away from the street.
I bathroom is smallish, but has a rainshower installed. My only gripe is that the shower cubicle is half-separated by glass, with no curtains, so the whole bathroom can get wet pretty quickly. They also did not provide any floor mats, which made it a soggy trip from bathroom to bedroom.
There's a large LCD TV with lots of channels, a well-stocked fridge and different glasses and mugs for cold and hot drinks. There's a water dispenser on the hall in every floor. Breakfast is included. It's the simple usual Pinoy breakfast fare. The waiters are friendly, but the coffee shop is quite small and can get filled up quickly.
Overall, the hotel staff are friendly, quick to attend to your questions and needs, and the property is clean. Being next to a mall is a big plus - although far from the airport. But if you need to travel around Mindanao by bus, this hotel is just 3 minutes away by cab.
