Bohol 2016: Marcelina’s Guest House

Our Bohol itinerary was really polished except for the fact that we have to be out of Tagbilaran by 8AM on our 4th day.  This means, we have to stay one more night (our 3rd night) in Bohol and that equates to additional expenses on accommodation.  We don’t want to spend so much; therefore we searched online on cheap hotels/inn near Tagbilaran airport.   

We found Marcelina’s Guest House.  It is located just a few meters away from Tagbilaran airport.  It is one of the cheapest and most modest of the inns I found online.  We booked our room when we arrived on our first day at Bohol and reserved at Triple Room costing PHp1200 overnight, with no breakfast.

Room – 4 out of 5.  Other than the small area, the room is equipped with everything a traveler would need in a hotel room.  Clean beds, air-conditioning unit, small LED TV, hot and cold shower, and basic toiletries. 

Amenities – n/a.  Since Marcelina’s Guest House is like a normal house with rooms for rent, there really is no available amenity just like any hotel would offer. 

Staff – 3 out of 5.  This is a guesthouse; therefore no roaming staff can be seen.  The only staff we saw was the receptionist who wasn’t so friendly and wasn’t so snob either.  When we checked-in, someone helped us bring our luggage on our room, but when we checked out, it was all us.

Food – n/a.  No food was offered in the accommodation.

Location – 5 out of 5.  Since this guesthouse is just 50 meters away from Tagbilaran Airport, we didn’t have to (1) get up to early to prepare for an early flight and (2) spend so much for commute to the airport as we only walked.

Value for Money – 4 out of 5.  Marcelina’s Guest House served its purpose for us – an affordable accommodation we can spend the night before an early travel.  We just need a clean room to stay and no frills whatsoever.

If you’re looking for an affordable overnight stay near Tagbilaran, try Marcelina’s Guest House.  It’s a practical choice we made and I can highly suggest.
