“Surprised by this little gem of a road motel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2013

A GenSan friend recommended me this hotel. He said it was good value and it certainly was. It is exceedingly good value if you are a fan of the great Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao as he owns the place and he's got memorabilia all over it! A very pleasant surprise indeed.

The hotel is really like a traditional motel , with a place to park your vehicle. It's a two story structure with lots of open area so beware when there is rain, you'll need the umbrellas they provide to get around the area. Location is just of the main hiway, near a lot of eateries though it a smaller city like GenSan things are really very near one another.

The hotel is itself is not big but very nicely appointed. In fact themed is the better word. It feels very much like a themed Disney or Vegas hotel. Think Hard Rock Hotel but much cheaper and only in a motel.

The room is quite huge good for a big family though the breakfast included (very basic tapsilog type) is only good for two. This is the biggest hotel motel room I've been in for a standard room and low price. Lots of pictures and memorabilia in the room as well. Beds and Linen are basic but comfortable enough and for the price well worth it.

This is a little gem of a place that I hope they are able to keep up. I recommend this place to anyone visiting Gen San be it on business or family vacation.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the outside are brighter but also noisier. The ground floor standard room I was in was...

The Roadhaus hotel has a convenient and accessible location near the center of town just off the national highway. It had only been recently opened at the time of our stay, so the facilities appeared to be spanking new. In fact, the onsite restaurant was not operational yet. The rooms are very spacious by any standard, though the bathrooms are relatively quite small. The beds are not the most comfortable but are adequate. However, we didn't appreciate the bed placement along the direct line of the wall airconditioner. There is no way of avoiding the draft from the airconditioning unit, so we often had to either turn it off or cover ourselves with our blankets when we slept. Since the Roadhaus is also being marketed as a business hotel, a nicer desk and chair would have been appropriate. Other room amenities that would have been appreciated are a table clock, a safe for valuables, a small refrigerator and hand towels in the bathroom.

The complimentary breakfast is average in taste and the portions are rather small. In fact, in my travels around the Philippines, theirs is the smallest breakfast portion I have encountered in hotels of similar class. Hotel management should look into this matter.

Please bear in mind that this is a new hotel and is still going through the growing pains stage. The staff is very polite and friendly, and the premises are clean and well maintained. The Roadhaus hotel is a welcome and much needed development in the progressive city of General Santos.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are quieter.
