I spent 1 night at the Arizona. Even before I got there I was helped repeatedly by Gerchean at the front desk. I had never been to Olongapo or Clark / Angeles City before. Gerchean helped me arrange transportation from Clark & the Southern Cross Shuttle dropped me off right at their door. I was made to feel welcome as soon as I walked in their door. I was shown a clean comfortable room will lots of storage cabinets, a desk, a fan, air conditioning, Cable TV, hot shower, and a mini bar. I only ate 1 meal there (Eggs Benedict for breakfast was wonderful), but wished I had dined there more. I didn't get into the pool, but it did look inviting.
When I checked in I was given a voucher for a free drink & decided to use it when I returned from visiting a family member. The voucher isn't valid at the regular bar, so i walked through the door of the Score Bar. I looked around & decided that wasn't the place for me. The point of telling this part is to let you know that the Score Bar is a separate bar located behind a clearly marked door. I could have easily been comfortable there, in the lobby with my wife & children. There were no gaudy signs or half dressed women running around. I went back to the regular bar, enjoyed several nice cold beers & gave my voucher to another guy at the bar.
