Reviewed November 7, 2013

Me and my family first stayed at the family room which consist of 3 beds. The family room we have rented is located on the ground floor and the room ventilation is a problem.
Foe the negative aspects,there is lack of sunlight on the ground floor rooms. So if you plan to bathe yourself with sunlight and fresh air, I don't recommend to rent a ground floor room. The cleanliness of the room is excellent as you have arrived. One of the main problem you'll only encounter is the lack of rooms (for walk-in) and room and sometimes lack of toiletries, (in which if it happens you have to remind the staff, but still). Also lack of maintenance on some rooms were also noted (lack of cable in tvs, damaged lights, leaking faucet, no shower curtain). For room service, don't expect too much, they have low priority regarding that matter, which is rather disappointing.

On the positive side, the price is inexpensive and affordable.Also there are lots of electric outlets which is very good in the room (about 5 pairs of outlets). The dresser/cabinet provided is good and wide, in which you can lock with a bicycle lock or something similar. There are a small side table provided with a stool. The bed is just as thin, with one blanket and pillow for each bed. If the tv cable work, it is excellent with nice quality. Bible are provided and free newspaper along the front desk. Provided with 2 wifi hot spots, which is pretty fast. BUT, you cannot connect if you are inside the room or faraway from the source. (but you can connect if you went out of your room). The Location is excellent, lots of food stores, drug stores, cell loading centers, salons and to Gaisano mall (walking distance). Transportation is very accessible (near to the van terminal). The security guards assigned to palm residence are very friendly and very accomodating. :)

Room Tip: Higher floors have better ventilation (air and sunlight) Check your tv if it has working cable Ch...

I place my reservation past 3pm. We arrived b4 6pm. Family room is no longer available so we decided to get twin bed plus extra bed. After an hour and a half rest we went our to have our dinner. I told the staff that we still don't have towels, blanket, toiletries. And I also reminded them for the extra bed. We went back almost 11pm. Still don't have d extra bed and blankets and toiletries.. I again compalained.. Then their room boy came explaining that they don't have available extrabed and blankets.. They will just refund our payment.. O my.. Imagine its almost 12 mindnight.. We we're so tired from our whole day travel.. My kids are already sleepy.. My husband slept already. What do u think I should do?? Is thid inn recommendable??? Sayang maganda sanang location. Bt poor service.. The front desk people should also be trained well..

The Location is in the heart of the city. Clean place. Very affordable. Staff are very friendly. Clean place And near from malls, schools, church, restaurants and food chains as well. Transportation is not a problem. You can get taxi, ride jeepneys and even they called it "trisikad", you can get it anytime of the day.

This is a very inexpensive guest house in a good location in Davao, The beds were simple and the mattresses thin, but the staff was very helpful, aircon and hot water worked well, and housekeeping was happy to clean up the room and provide fresh sheets and towels any time. Although we don;t have much experience with such places, it was better than we thought it would be, and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: First floor is cooler as only rooms are airconditioned, common area was just hot as you went up the...
