        Away from pollution of city”

        Pool for kids, nice open restaurant, friendly staff

        We traveled from Butuan through very busy Christmas traffic and a polluted city and Kingston Lodge was the haven awaiting our arrival. We had two pool view rooms booked, one for my wife and myself and one for our three teenage children. We had twenty of my wife's family over that Saturday night to eat in the restaurant and watch the band. There was a BBQ on and everything was perfect as far as I was concerned. Very friendly staff and the owner Danny is very helpful. Last time we stayed we did the white water rafting and this time we visited Kampo Juan adventure park. Great Anicycle ride (check it out on YouTube) and fantastic sustainable building designs. Next trip we'll do a trip over to Camiguin Island. Will stay at Kingston again next time we're in Cagayan De Oro.

        Budget Hotel with 5 star srvice”

        Excellent Service, very good value for money and food as good as i have had in CDO

        The hotel represents excellent value for money. You would have to go a long way to beat the friendly welcoming service here. Because i was travelling by myself, the staff invited me to celebrate christmas eve with them, which was a fantastic gesture, much appreciated. If you need any advice about places to go, activities, etc. in CDO,then you can consult "Sir Edward" at the front desk who is a mine of useful information and the local "Mr Fix-it" The food here is also as good as you will find in any CDO hotel. It is mostly western but has a selection of national Philippine dishes. Even if you do not stay here, i would recommend eating here at least once, especially you are feeling a little homesick. The only negative is that the rooms can be a little noisy from aircraft landing at the airport and sometimes noise from the bar.If you are a light sleeper, maybe earplugs are a solution (or maybe go to the bar and have a drink!!!!). However i have stayed in some hotels in downtown CDO where the noise from the street was worse than anything you would get here. No problem with the rooms, they are small but comfortable,clean and contain everything you need for your stay. If you plan to stay longer than 1 month, then they have well appointed appartments available for rent. The location is close to the airport and a 15 minute taxi ride to downtown Cagayan De Oro. Also has a large SM mall nearby and a White water rafting company 3 minutes walk away but this can be ordered from reception.

        Really nice, inexpensive place.”

        Close to airport, inexpensive, clean, new, broad menu restaurant, full bar and pool table.

        I thought this place was really great. We were making our 2nd attempt into Cagayan De Oro so price was more important this time around. This place was a lot nicer than I was expecting. The rooms were very clean and odorless. Having wifi in the room was only an additional 100 PHP ($2-$3 USD). The service was fantastic, everyone was more than nice. Apparently the entire restaurant side was completely re-done in the Fall of 2012, so it was all pretty brand new looking. The food was awesome, having a good mix of Filipino, American, Italian, other Asian dishes and Australian steaks. A small, but nice bar, a good conditioned pool table and dart board as well. A very welcoming and chill atmosphere. The hotel is located near the airport as well. Maybe a 5-7 min. taxi ride. Couldn't say enough good things. Great place.

        2nd Time Never Fails to Disappoint”

        Service, Food, and Cleanliness

        it happens to be our second time to stay at kingston lodge and like how i entitled this review - second time never fails to disappoint. kingston lodge, is in the epicenter which is the perfect spot for going to the nearby sm and airport. they serve a good selection of food, mostly to the taste of expats and foreigner who miss home but also showcases a sample of filipino cuisine. and the servings are unforgettable, that will leave the tummy smiling. our accommodation was well taken care of by edward, who act likes the manager-in-charge, from security detail, to checking on our rooms that is well, to helping us getting a van to go to the agora bus terminal that we need going to camiguin. he also helped double checked the computations on a wrong computed bill, which he apologized for the inconvenience it has caused us. our room was larger to the one we previously stayed but same type of rooms we've always been reserving, my issue was the shower though was something that needs to be worked on since the water flow is quite weak, but nonetheless bearable for that needed bath moments. wifi is quite good, quick. in sum, the kingston lodge is a perfect stay for the family on the go to camiguin, service is good, and cleanliness is always a priority. should i come back to cdo, i will definite have kingston lodge come first priority once again.

        Absolute best value!”

        I have stayed at The Kingston Lodge for at least 8 days on different trips and I can state that no other hotel ANYWHERE offers more for the $! Location is ideal because it is “up on the hill” which is the clean part of CDO, it’s off the main road about 100 meters so you hear nothing and it’s only a few minutes walk to many shops and the new SM mall but when your on the property your in your own quiet world! Rooms are clean, one thing I appreciate (being American) is they have the most amount of television channels I have encountered in PH and it’s nice to find something to watch you can understand. The 2 pools right in the center of the hotel are excellent and provide a great escape from the heat. The restaurant/bar here are 10/10 stars, the menu is HUGE, the portions are HUGE & the variety of liquors is HUGE! As per typical PH the staff are friendly and helpful BUT at Kingston Lodge they step this up, they will always remember your name even if you stayed a night or two a year prior, if you need a taxi they have a gentleman whom walks down the long driveway to personally hail one for you, their is also a full service laundry at the end of the driveway that will wash your things (same day) for a dollar or two. The hotel is owned by an Australian and as a non Filipino you can see the attention to detail geared for the English speaking guest. Twice I have arrived after 11 pm and had the manager happily waiting for my arrival with beverage in hand and smile on his face, Kingston Lodge is a “no stress” property!

        Comfortable medium range hotel”

        1) The staff service 2) the restaurant food 3) clean comfortable rooms

        First I would like to evaluate this survey instrument. I would rate this questionnaire as poor because it asks leading questions which appear to be aimed at providing the hotel good advertising. If you want to ask what one liked "best" about the hotel, you need to balance that with other questions that ask what one liked worst about the hotel. If this is a legitimate survey and not a marketing tool, then you need to inquire about both the pros and cons of the customer experience. As for the hotel itself, I was satisfied with my stay there. However it is not conveniently located to the beach, the downtown or even the airport. On this latter point, all flights to and from Cagayan de Oro have been shifted to a new airport which is many miles away from the hotel.

        Close to airport, good A/C

        good for a night or two, if you're transiting cagayan de oro and want to stay near the airport. rooms are relatively clean, towels old and worn. shower wouldn't drain as fast as water was coming in, so soapy water builds up. restaurant was fine. really nothing fancy at all, but decent enough for a short stay. not recommended if you want to be downtown, though, it's about a 1/2 hour taxi ride to the city. the hotel driveway is kind of long--off the main road, so getting a taxi means having one called for you, so they arrive with meter running from wherever they were when they got called. "free wifi" doesn't appear to work in the back rooms-not facing the lobby/restaurant.

        I wanted to try Kingston Lodge, inspite of some negative reviews. I enjoyed my stay, the room was of good space and the bathroom was adequate, although there was always a bad smell coming there. The staff were very helpful and responded to requests quickly. There was a restaurant that served nice Filippino and European food, good quality little overpriced. There were 2 swimming pools and I enjoyed swimming there. The pools were clean and cool especially in the morning. Every Saturday a music band performed in the restaurant and it was nice. The Lodge is a walking distance around 15 min from SM mall, there was a nearby 7/11 store too. In general I will come back to Kingston Lodge, it is a nice place to relax and enjoy one's vacation.

Very good accomodations, and the hotel is on the road of some main and great activities close to Cagayan, like caves or Rafting. Hotel staff know very well rafting team, so easy to oraganize. Unfortunatly kitchen burnt before our arrival, so we had to eat outside. Small swimmming pool, but enough to refresh. Probably due to the burn, was not quite clean.

        Great Time”

        Kingston Lodge was great with a few small things. The water faucet in the CR leaked terribly bad, and as a foreign traveler it was odd not to have wash clothes provided. Another thing the traveler needs to be prepared for is the late night (11 - 12) loud music. Regardless of these small things, I will stay at Kingston Lodge again while construction of our house is being completed, and would recommend Kingston Lodge to friends. Oh - and remember your are in the Philippines is about as poor as it get or is non-existent. Great food as well. Love the lechon kawali! Look forward to seeing Edward again.

        Food, staff, super fast check-in/out

        After studying all the options that Agoda presented me in CDO, Kingston seemed to be the only reasonable choice. We weren't disappointed! The rooms are simple but large enough and comfy. Wifi reception is good (in the poolside rooms and the common areas). There are two nice pools and a very cozy restaurant/ bar area with fantastic food and ice cold drinks for reasonable rates. The hotel is a meeting place for expats that live in or near the Kingston Lodge. They can be a bit noisy, but you might as well join them for some San Miguels.

        The hotel is conveniently located since it is near the airport,the shopping mall (SM), and restaurants.

        I had a very comfortable stay at the Kingston Lodge because of the great service extended by the staff/personnel and clean room. The pool view room was excellent due to the strong WiFi signal. The hotel is also conveniently located along the main highway, but the short the entry road is not paved/concrete and could be muddy during the rains.

        Nice pools, country surroundings distant from city”

        clean, helpful, pools

        Internet did not work at all in room and really weak or not at all in common area. The reception closes sometime at night, not sure when, but everything shuts down, so not a good hotel to come to if you arrive late. Pleasant country-side surroundings away from the pollution of the city. Sunday so there was no noise from a band or other entertainment, as it may be the case on a Friday or Sat. night. I would recommend this hotel only if you want privacy and are with your girl for romance & want to be away from the city. 1 can take a jeepney or taxi to the city for more food or entertainment options. Mall is not far either, but must get a ride from a Jeepney. There is a long driveway off the main road to get to this hotel so time needs to be alotted to get to the airport if you do not have a taxi coming right to the hotel reception area. Taxi drivers going to airport should charge 450 to 500 php, but may ask for much more. The meter read 474;we paid 500. 1 taxi driver said 500, then demanded 600 when he came to the hotel to pick us up at the last minute at the hotel to get to airport. We declined since his dishonesty could be a reflection of bigger problems to come. This taxi driver also had his whole driver side doors of his car smashed in. The staff at this hotel got this driver for us, so I question their ability to know the reputations of the people they call. Food at the hotel is too pricey for us to pay. Better to go to the city and eat at one of the sit down venders or restaurants. I think Cagayan de Oro is just to meet people already known who live there, not a worthwhile entertainment area, as it is dirty and crowded. The country-side is much more pleasant, as where this hotel was. This hotel is very far from the airport. I would not stay at this hotel again due to its distance from the airport and the city and having almost no internet.

        Run very well and a very good value. ”

        Kingston used to be outside of town in 2013 but now mall is done and the world has moved in around them. The rooms are cooled by the modern split a/cs, the bathrooms are kept clean and actually have hot water, rare here. The pictures don't show they have a good breakfast and dinner restaurant and two swimming pools with easy access for older adults and a small kiddie area in one pool. It is enclosed nicely with a guard at the gate all the time so more safe than most places. I have stayed there since 2013 and enjoy each trip. Very seldom do I write a review this complimentary.
