The majority of properties in the Field's Avenue area of Angeles City are over-priced and severely lacking in amenities, for an American. Though there is a broad spectrum of tastes and class of required service for the dollar, the standard for hotel is usually based on three things:
This hotel is a 2.5-3 star by the nominal Holiday Inn/ Motel 6 rates and rooms. If your off-season room is poolside, it will set you back $75; if it's on the 2nd floor, the same room will be $50 less. The hotel maintains two pools on the property, one wading pool(I assume for the kiddies) and a small but refreshing adult pool off the restaurant. Their food is served from 6am-10pm and there is a limited but tasty menu. There's also a small bar and the waiter serves as bartender,waiter and room service concierge.
My pet peeve with most budget hotels in the P.I. are the bathrooms. For some odd reason, they build these things without doors or curtains for the most part, something that leaves the floors sopping wet and slippery. Not to mention, tiny and inconveniently appointed. This hotel wasn't as bad as most and they were more than happy to accomodate with plenty of towels and TP. The management(Mike) was helpful, courteous and friendly as were the girls working the counter and security personnel, who manned the gated entry as well as patrolled day and night. The one outstanding quality of this establishment(and maybe this was attributable to the seasonal vacancy) was the level of quiet. I never once in the week I stayed in the hotel heard a raised voice or a rooster crowing; no mean feat in the P.I.! Overall I'd give this place a solid 4-Star rating for service, 3 for comfort and a 5 in serenity!
