I travelled with my husband and my son for the holy week. We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights in April 4-8, 2012. Here is what i think about this inn.
The good points are the price and location. The price is very affordable. It's the cheapest I found online along this area. It is about 2125 pesos a night with breakfast during peak season for a family of 3. They have limited parking space - only good for about 7-10 cars. The parking is NOT that secured but the Subic police always roam the area, so I guess it's ok. They also have free wifi, just ask the front desk what the password is. The wifi is strongest near the reception, so getting a room near the reception has an advantage. There's no bell boy that will help you carry your luggages to your room. You bring it, you carry it rule as you would say.
We were given room 102 - very close to the reception area. Wifi is great but very noisy at night. Our room is close to the boardwalk, were they always have an activity at night - so it was really hard to sleep with all the noise. Cleanliness was also a little problem. I am not expecting a 5 star cleanliness but it is a plus if it was. I don't think they do vacuum their run down carpets. When we tried moving the red chair at the corner of the room, we found a lot of dirt and even a dead cockroach. Although, they do change the towels everyday.
Staff is generally ok except the very cold reception lady at night. Their restaurant is undermanned. During our stay, there was only one or two waiter/s. So if the bar/restaurant is full of people, food comes in late and cold. The food was also inconsistent with the taste. You can choose either filipino or american breakfast. My son loves pancakes and fresh milk or hot chocolate so I pay extra for these. But when they run out, they don't try to replace them and made them available the next day. Always double check how much they charge you, there was an occasion that i almost paid double if I did not ask for the list of my orders.
Generally, it was an okay experience at this hotel.
