    A stansared hotel but with awesome staff.”

    Helpful Staff, Good Location, Nice Views

    My stay at Martin's was a good one. Our room is very clean and up to par with any western hotel , it's the staff that makes this place great . There is no night life at Basco, Butanes since it is just a small island community, but the owner , Martin, and myself just talked for hours about life in Butanes. For the owner to take time to talk to you while having a beer or two at the end of a long day is a signals good service to me. A very charming Inn

    Excellent Location and Service”

    When thinking of Batanes, everything is great. It became greater when we stayed at Martin's Inn, the owner made sure that we were okay and comfy with the stay. Not even that, he also spent some time orienting us about the place. Overlooking the pier and just in front of their plaza, overlooking the infamous lighthouse.

    Location is at the center of the town walking distance to airport, Naidi Hils, Basco LIghthouse and Vayang Rolling hills. Town plaza is infront of this Inn. Clean room, accommodating staff, free water and coffee daily. We are 4 in the room, the space is just ok for medium size people. The aircon is a bit noisy but we did not use it most of time since its winter in Batanes during our visit and the toilet sink is sometimes clogging. Need to fix aircon and sink at room 205. All in all its ok, we will book here again on our next visit.

    Amazing Family Hospitality”

    Stayed here for 3-4 days, visiting Batanes for the first time, solo. Met the owner ("Gino") who was very friendly, had a one hour + chat and told me the history of the town, and his involvement with it since the 90s. Signed up for the tour they do, saw the north, south and other island over three days, his son came along and was also great in sharing stories of the place, helping to arrange everything, and ensuring I had a good time and felt very welcome when traveling solo. Everything was punctual, meals, driver, drop offs and pick ups for dinner. It is a very remote province, so food is mainly imported from Luzon (although there are local producers for some things) , water pressure in shower isn't great, and some other small things, but such a great family make it a super enjoyable and worth visiting, to get the most that Batanes has to offer. Great place to disconnect from internet, phone, spend time living very leisurely and just thinking about life, while surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Right in the CBD of Basco, 5 min drive from the airport, walking distance to everything, and they can rent you a bicycle.

    location, accomodation, and staff

    The inn is centrally located in the city proper, with it being along the national road and just outside is the city park.The place is also one of the most well-lit area, and one can go night biking (you can rent at the inn) with the place being safe and all. Our booking was kind of abrupt for the holy week so we weren't able to plan ahead book for our tours for our 4D/3N stay. Dr. Querubin Martin is probably one of the most accomodating hotel owners we've met as he helped us plan and carry out our trips for the whole stay. And when tour guides was unavailable, he himself went along with us to guide us along the local hotspots. Rooms were casual and even has an extra bed undernearth capable of accomodating 3 persons. Heater and aircon were in good condition. Overall, rooms are tidy and neat. Transportation wasn't much of a problem as everything can either be walked, or a tricycle is always on call (you can ask Dr.Querubin for a cp number as tricycles aren't allowed to loiter in the city). And for tours, the inn's van will be used, just make sure to inform them ahead if possible. Dr. Querubin will check in from time to time again to make sure everything's taken cared of and if given the time, will chat with you to immerse you more in the local scenery. Our stay in Batanes was pleasant, and we will surely recommend others.
