I've been staying in this hotel since 2005, though not staying here recently. Just want to give you my thoughts. Overall, its a good hotel for the price and purpose. Its a short 2 min walk from Mactan (Cebu) airport. When you arrive at Mactan airport, just exit, go aross the street, walk upstairs (outside open stairs) and across the street, you're in their parking lot (its really very short walk) When you're in the airport-facing room, if you have great arm strength, you can throw a rock that lands on the runway....just to simply tell you how close the hotel is to the airport.
The lobby is a bit dark. Rooms are large enough, but you can feel that its a bit old and dated. Breakfast wasn't as good as other US-branded hotel. Price isnt bad though. This hotel is not close to any beaches. Since I stay here mainly for business, I am fine with it. The closest shopping is the Marina Mall which has an SM and a great $5 massage. There isn't anything around the hotel at nite, but the good thing is there is a KTV called Golden Carriage right inside the hotel, as well as a casino, that you can spend time and money on. Service is good.
All in all, its a good hotel for the price, if you're not looking for a "beach resort" (because its right by airport so it doesnt have that beach resort feeling) but a decent hotel to stay, either for business to the Mactan trade zone nearby or as a 1-day stop-over to other beach hotels, this is a hotel I would recommend.
