Green Windows Dormitel offers good value accommodations in Davao City. For a lot less than a hundred dollars, you can have a spacious room for a family of six. They have rooms for two up to the teens (bunk beds, I think). Check out the website for the price and number of people that can be accommodated in a room.
The best part of the place is that it's new -- this means that this no-frills dorm/hotel doesn't look shabby yet. While their claims of luxury are a bit of a stretch, it's much better than staying at the Waterfront. The pictures on the website and fliers don't lie, except that the place is not as bright in the common areas. Again, with what you're paying for not getting much natural light is not a big deal..
The hotel actually starts on the fifth floor of a building that hosts a lot of medical clinics -- they have a small reception area, a store for food and toiletries, a canteen that will remind you of a typical office canteen, and a common area where you can watch TV. There are a couple of spots where you can use their relatively fast wi-fi. They have ATM machines on the ground floor.
Our room had three queen sized beds, a small flat screen TV, DVD player, separate toilet and bath rooms, and plenty of cabinets. Can't recall seeing a minibar, but that wasn't a problem -- the canteen is well stocked, even with comfort food from Metro Manila -- Krispy Kreme and Cupcakes by Sonja. They have chips, juice and the usual other foods.
The breakfast that came with the room was average by smaller restaurant standards. Not fancy at all but it's expected, considering the price.
A good place to stay if you want a clean and safe place to sleep in. The linens are nothing great, but no one died from rough sheets and towels.
