As hotels go in Maasin City, this one was nice and reasonably affordable. The rooms were well kept, the AC worked and the showers were hot most days. The staff was trustworthy enough that the people I was traveling with could leave a laptop computer charging in the room.
The biggest drawback was the noise. Most evenings, groups would gather in front and drink, smoke and joke until 1 a.m. At 4:30 a.m., the local Catholic Church would begin blaring its sermon and music over the loudspeakers until 6 a.m. It wasn't the wake up call I wanted.
I would recommend it ONLY if you can get a room that faces the water at the rear of the hotel, particularly on the northern side. That helps with the noise according to some in my party.
