“Usual hotel in center of Cebu”
Reviewed 18 January 2014

It is good placement because It placed in the center of Cebu! Big Mall across the road. But my room was very loud because windows overlooking the main road! All nights i've been listening road noise! 2 nights i was drunk and slept well, but last night i couldn't sleep at all.
One more plus for this place - smoking area on the 3rd floor is placed on the roof! :) Good place for smoke and think.

Room Tip: Take a room without windows! :) Keep your mind in silence.

This was our first night at Cebu City. This Hotel is literally a few steps from the Fuenta Osmena Circle in the heart of the City. As a result of this great location, it is somewhat noisy and its rooms are a bit worn out. The Air Conditioning was struggling to cool the room the whole night without much success. The rooms are small and just adequate for the 2 persons, but considering the price of PHP998, it is reasonable value.

We chose this place because of its location. It is a jeepney ride away from Magellan's Cross, Basilica Minore de Sto. Nino, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Shamrock (for pasalubong) Heritage of Cebu Monument and Yap House . Robinson fuente and Zubuchon (famous lechonan) is just few steps away. Crown Regency for sky adventure, Larsian BBQ and STK are also close.

The suite offers basic ammenities - hot and cold shower, cable TV, aircon... From our room (215), we can connect to the WIFI in the lobby. The receptionists are accommodating and helpful.

If you are new in Cebu, and you want an affordable and accessible place to stay for a night then this is a must-try place. The place is near to some famous attractions in Cebu namely, MAgellan's Cross, Sto.Nino de Basilica, Yap Sandiego Ancestral House, Plaza Independencia and Fort San Pedro.. Another plus points of this hotel is its near to restaurants/fastfood chains... Mang Inasal, Mc Donalds, Jollibee and the famous CNT Lechon place... just a walking distance from the hotel is an Island souvenir shop wherein you can buy stuffs like keychain,slippers, printed tshirt etc. Now for the hotel itself... the staffs are accommodating, the rooms are clean with small television and telephone. Bathroom is small with hot and cold shower, soaps and shampoos are provided yet no slippers for the occupants. The prize is ok for those in a tight budget..no breakfast included but they have cafeteria that can cook the foods you want (but of course its a little bit expensive) so I advised to eat outside then. Overall, this place is worth your money..

My Poyry-Manila client put me up at this dump. It's got a good location across from Magellan Cross, but you pay extra for housekeeping. No extra charge for the prostitutes coming and going in the lobby. No charge for Internet as there is no room Internet service. There's a nice and pleasant restaurant and a Western Union for currency exchange next door, plus a large two-story supermarket across the street.

CoronEcolodgeCS, Public Relations Manager at Sampaguita Suites JRG, responded to this review, 14 October 2013
Dear Sir,
Please pardon us for disputing the statement you made above. There are times when a review is negative but we always appreciate the opportunity to glean pointers where we can improve. We are not certain however, how to take this one.

First of all, you just gave a review for a hotel you never stayed in. Our records show you stayed in Sampaguita Suites –Plaza Garcia NOT Sampaguita Suites JRG. Your reference to Magellan’s Cross betrays your claim. Magellan’s Cross is across Sampaguita Suites Plaza Garcia, not Sampaguita Suites JRG.

Secondly, you indicated in this review you stayed on November 2012. Records show you stayed on January and March 2012. There is no record of your stay on November 2012.

Third, you mentioned you were charged for housekeeping. Housekeeping has been, and always has been since the hotel has been operational, FREE.

Fourth, no sex workers have ever been allowed to enter our establishment, or loiter in or around the premises. If you saw a woman accompanied by a guest of the hotel please know we cannot question our guests as to who they escort into the hotel. Not because we condone it but because we couldn’t really judge who is or is not a sex worker and risk offending our guests. We would have accorded you that same courtesy of privacy and discretion IF you were actually our guest.

Finally, you write this “review” almost a year after your supposed stay. Why sir, may we ask, only now? Your careless use of such terms such as “dump” and “prostitutes coming and going in the lobby” are irresponsible and heedless to the potential damage you cause without basis on actual facts. One tends to wonder the motivation behind this tirade hidden in the guise of a review.

The company who booked you is a valued client of ours. We have always been in good business standing with them, hence the reason why they often book their clients in our hotel. Furthermore, we are rated as the best value hotel in our category in Cebu, and one of the top endorsed hotel by Trip Advisor. While we appreciate constructive comments from guests, we hope future comments from you can be fair and truthful

They have clean room. Free WiFi is available in lobby area. The hotel staffs are accommodating, courteous and very helpful. They would offer they help to carry your things. They have security guard 24 hours a day. The hotel is near with the Robinson's mall. Larsian, where you can find delicious and affordable BBQ in town is walking distance with the hotel. I would definitely going back to this hotel.

We checked-in around 7PM, the hotel was fully booked, good thing we had a reservation. The staff was accommodating, service was good. Room was just Okay. No free breakfast. We stayed there because of its location and it's very affordable.
