Cagayan De Oro, Misamis Oriental: Will's Place - Hotel Review

There are several hotels, pension houses, and places to stay in Cagayan De Oro City, and more developments are transpiring ever since the city has been dubbed as the haven for extreme adventures such as the White Water Rafting. If you're looking for one of the cheapest places to stay in CDO, then Will's Place may definitely suit your travel budget.

Will's Place is located within the city center, in front of City Central School and near CDO Sports Complex, and a jeep ride only going to Agora Terminal. It is just a small pension house, and not as fancy as other hotel accommodations; well, their price rates speak for itself - of course given that prices should also meet comfort and value for money.

Will's Place is pretty decent, not so wide hallways but well-lit. The hotel reception area is also clean and the receptionist is very helpful. One cannot miss the signage of the hotel as the font is like of Disney Film's Aladdin, or Disneyland's Logo. Kind of hilarious but kudos to the owner's creativity.

Below were my thoughts about the place - based on the comfort level, convenience, and facilities available, I experienced during my stay.

PROS:
  • Beds are soft
  • So-so Hot and Cold Shower
  • Reasonably-priced for backpackers and budget travelers
  • A good wash-up place for on the go travelers

CONS:
  • Poor to NO Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Some areas are a bit smelly and untidy
  • The television has no available channels
  • Pillows provided are very thin
  • Room lights, which is yellow in color, is definitely a no-no
