    Great Place Near Tagbilaran Port”
    We booked this hotel as we need a place near the port, this is like 3 minutes away to the port (via Tricycle - since its hot day we took Tricycle) we paid like 20 pesos for the ride. Very basic room, bed, towels, TV, private bathroom, the staff - very accommodating. We encountered slight issue with the air-condition, it took time to get it going so we had to request for electric fan, but overall experience it is good for the money you paid for.

    2 days in Bohol ”
    Very clean and comfortable room in a residential area of Bohol. Near to a large supermarket and a Jeepney terminal. A good breakfast was included in the price and staff were happy to serve it at 6:00 am on our request. The wifi was a little patchy but that was attended to immediately. Location was far from decent restaurants and the area catered more for locals than tourists. Overall the hotel was very good and I would certainly recommend it. The bus that goes to the new Panglao airport is just a short Jeepney ride away. Bus fares to the new airport were 50 peso per person and it is a 30 minute bus trip.

    Fantastic Hotel! 10+ Rating”
    This is a really spectacular hotel! It is close to the Port, close to the airport, and close to shopping! Cleaner than you ever expected; Well managed, well maintained, friendly, yet professional staff, each and every staff member is attentive, constantly striving to fulfill your slightest need. Located in a very nice area of Tagbilàran, Bohol, Philippines, this hotel truly has 24/7 security guards and a 24/7 fully functioning and staffed Front Desk. We spent the entire week of October 13, 2018 at this hotel, the El Portal Inn. Breakfast, both the included with the room and the regularly available breakfast we're very good. This hotel is great for couples, singles, families, and for business groups and meetings. If you can, try to get the bigger Deluxe Queen Bed, Windowed, room. However, all the rooms are good. I am an American on extended vacation in the Philippines with NO prior relationship with this hotel or any staff member I also have never before posted a hotel review. The El Portal Inn impressed me that much to make me want to share my pleasant hotel experience.

    After I checked out the hotel, I lost my cellphone in tricycle. So I came back there and ask staff. The owner of hotel tried to ask all of the tricycle driver in Bohol and tried to find my cellphone. The staff cheered me. Unfortunately I couldn't find it but I was very happy because they efforted to search it for me. Also they told me how to get to Panglao and caught the tricycle. And the breakfast was nice. I appriciate for their kindness. Next time I visit to Bohol, I want stay here again. Salamat.

    Room was quite big for 2pax, but the shower was really not good due to low pressure. Also aircon is not that cold. But TV and fridge was impressing. They even provided us extension wire because they only have 3 sockets for your electric needs. Few choices of free breakfast too, it's platted btw. We have to arrange airport transfer from them with charge. Instead of they could've offered it for free, adding the fact that it's near from airport anyway. Staff are hospitable and friendly. They've suggested local spots where you can have a cheaper meal.

    It's right smack in the center of the city for those who want to stay a 5-minute tricycle ride from the airport (we only had to pay 8 pesos per person) and just 30 minutes away from Alona Beach (we paid 300 pesos for the tricycle trip). It's also an easy pick-up spot for people who plan to join the countryside tour. The room we got was very clean, spacious, and well furnished. The staff were very friendly, and they accommodated our request for an early packed breakfast since we had to leave for our flight at 5 in the morning the next day.

    My room faced the mainstreet (one-way street) but soundproofing proved to be adequate in keeping all noise out. Definitely recommendable budget hotel for the reasons I stated above. Also included is a decent filipino breakfast with brewed coffee (a delicacy here as most bidget hotels only offer you "instant coffee" (yack...). Good wifi and excellent Cable channels, and most definitely lovely helpful staff add to making this hotel a "good buy".
