nice place at the beach”

love the cafe out the back, no hassel, good food, beautiful view,

this place is very nice, the rooms are pretty dated and need an upgrade but you have everything you need and the aircon worked well, cable tv good too, the austrailian owners are very nice and friendly people, if you go out the front door you can do all the things in subic i guess people go there for or if you go out the back door you find the really nice little cafe, very peaceful, great food, nobody gives you any hassel, the wifi is fantastic, right on the beach too, for me this part was the best feature about the hotel, there is also a swimming pool, it can be a little noisy at night but then i guess the whole of subic gets a little noisy at night time, goood budget option, worth staying just for the wifi it was brilliant

You get what you pay for”

The location was the only real plus for this hotel

Check-in was quick. The hotel is old and shows it. I paid for a cheap room and that is what I got. Air conditioning was not good. A fan would have been better. The room was very small and the shower had no pressure at all. I cannot say that other rooms were the same but I would not recommend staying in the cheapest rooms. I couldn't wait to leave. On the other hand, the location is very good for everything in Barrio Barretto.

a roach hotel!”

none, this "hotel" has zero redeeming value

we had booked this hotel for 4 nights...and left before the first night was over. their standard air-conditioned room was tiny,dirty,noisy and best of all, it was crawling with large cockroaches! the "beach" this place was on was littered with trash of all sorts and smelled like a sewer. no excuse for it, you can go 100 yards down the same beach and the other resorts. this was our first trip to subic and had no idea, so we fell for their slick advertising, which bears no resemblance to the real thing. especially their "pool"...i wouldn't get in that if i had to. if you don't mind what i have described, then this is your place...it's not ours.

Basic backpacker accomodation”

Good location

Emu tavern is located on the main street with a bar attached which explains the availability of a 2 hour short time rate for 360 peso. It also has a pool and the beach can be accessed from the rear. It's very basic but has flat panal tv shower and a comfortable bed. It's good value and seems to be quite popular , most rooms were occupied while I was there.

Budget hotel with budget feel”

Location not bad on main road. That really is about it

Arrived late in the evening to be showed two rooms on the ground floor behind the nightclub. These were dirty and did not look safe and I was concerned that drunks from the club would try to enter. Upgraded to two other rooms at an additional cost which at best were basic . Rooms felt a bit like a cell with no windows and air conditioning that could wake the dead!
