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.

I have booked this separately for my sister and his parter. They've been placed in a very nice spot with wide window. But still AC was not too cold. And flush at the bowl was not good too. Very friendly staff.

Friendly staff”
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.

Great staff, good free breakfast!”
We liked this place. The wifi wasn’t great but the staff was and the free breakfast was a nice bonus. Air con worked, hot water was good too. Wish they had blackout curtains and the planes flying over can be loud but not loud enough to wake you up.

Spacious room with strong hot shower . Breakfast is simple but delicious. I like the pancakes with brewed coffee. The front desk girl is very informative and helpful. She gave us many useful informations about Bohol and helped us to grab a tricycle to Panglao with "Local Price"!!!

10 mins walk from the port. Clean, comfortable room. Slightly noisy from the street, but really not much. Wifi generally good. Staff offered to clean the room each day. Impressed with the breakfast, very good and flexible on time. Can offer Bohol tours too. Staff speak good English and are helpful.

Well worth its price”
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.

Lovely staff, clean safe budget hotel, location OK”
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".

Very affordable rates, clean rooms with refrigerator. Staffs are great and very helpful especially the lady front office officer who assisted us and explained everything about the free breakfast during check in and check out. Free breakfast is a plus! I would highly recommend this hotel in Tagbilaran!

Room was okay, although amenities inside were limited. No haidryer, no face towels, and no handtowels. Only a small soap in the bathroom. AC was good. Good value for your money. But, a lot can be improved.

The staffs are friendly and their service is outstanding. The room provided has no window, but didn't bother us because we were out during the day exploring places of interest for the short stay in Tagbilaran. We appreciate the provided breakfast and the young guy who prepared the meal did a good job and we really appreciate his service. The room and bathroom were clean, AC in good running condition. My wish is for the hotel to provide an adequate lighting and mirror in the room. I recommend El Portal Inn to budget conscious travelers.

Staff are nice Complimentary breakfast is okay Location is near airport about (5-7mins), near church, near some tourist spots, walking distance to jollibee (hehe!) They allowed us to transfer room as we requested for a room with a window because the room is dark. (but the real reason was dahil may ipis sa room assigned namin) Establishment is slightly old... Shower on our room has a weak water supply.. Overall, good for a short-stay

Had a 2 day delay due to Typhoon Basyang (SANBA) and staff accommodation with update to Agoda, allowed adjustment to stay for refund. Then asked if had a room for 2 day stay longer and allowed price adjustment to Agoda pricing on smaller room price match. I am a repeat customer to this hotel and they have always shown appreciation for their guests.
