    The hotel is very accessible from all establishments, like mall, spa, restaurants, market and everything. The receptionist is very nice and friendly. He help us to manage our service for our tour. The room is small but comfortable, clean and reasonable in price.

    Worth the price”
    My second stay in this hotel. Only for a short vacation for bonding with friends next to Subic Freeport area. There is no elevator and will never be. The aircon is working silently. A big bonus. The bathroom is OK. Don't expect a breakfast and there is also no restaurant or whatever. But nothing to worry: Leave the hotel and you are surrounded by everything you need. SM Olongapo is only 3 min. to walk. Nice and friendly staff... after you entered the reception on the second floor by using the stairs.

    VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!”
    Very disappointing! Let me start with the stairs. The lobby is located at the 3rd floor and we had a toddler and lots of luggage with us, not to mention my mother-in-law is with us on this trip, they should have mentioned details like this. Brace yourself for 4 flight of stairs just to check in! And the rooms, I specifically asked for 1 room with a queen bed and 2 rooms with twin beds, and upon arrival they showed me rooms all with queen beds, which is relatively okay, but when I asked if I change the other room to a twin bed, they will charge me an additional fee for upgrade?! What?! The twin bed is an upgrade from a queen bed???! Absurd! The most that pissed me off is there parking staff/ slash security guard! I know that I made a mistake booking this hotel the moment I saw the building and all the cars were parked on the road. They have no parking area, which would be understandable because it was on me, I didn't check, what was so annoying and very disappointing was when we paid for the parking slot that we luckily saw and asked the reception if they could reserve us a slot which they happily answered yes, when we left to dine out and came back, there was no reserve slot and this security guard was so arrogant when we asked for the reserved parking slot! He only answered "ay wala na po"...WHAT'S THE EFFIN PURPOSE OF RESERVING A SLOT AND TAKING NOTE OF OUR PLATE NUMBER??!!! And then I found out that the newly arrived guest got our spot! Frustrating!!! This was beyond disappointing! I'll never book here again!

    location and bathroom
    The hotel is located in a shoppingstreet on top of a hairdresser salon. No elevater (3rd floor was our room) no services like breakfast. Very basic room with double bed, small tv with few channels. Can only recommend it when you dont care about the room luxury and having a warm/hot shower. Next time I pay more and have a better room.

    It's a good place to stay if you're looking for a comfortable overnight rest. I didn't want to spend to much for a hotel since I was mostly attending a symposium and wouldn't be able to use the hotel's amenities.

    The difference of room quality between Standard and Deluxe is bigger than the price difference, 100 pesos. The Deluxe room I stayed was enough clean and comfortable although there were no windows for fresh air. It would be enough just for staying overnights.

    inexpensive, clean enough for an overnight stay, close to the mall
    It was okay considering that it was only an overnight stay. There was not much about the hotel. You need to climb the staircases a few flights before reaching the floor where the rooms are. Basic needs are inside the room. There was no breakfast. I suppose you have to get out to grab food from any restaurant as what we did.

    deceptive facade but very comfortable hotel”
    spacious rooms and beds
    the hotel is located at the seedy side of olongapo. there are bars just beside it. the lobby is located at the 3rd floor so when we ascended to it i was apprehensive because the stairs looks dirty. i hope they will replace it with tiles so that they can clean it easily. the rooms and beds are very okay though, the children liked it instantly. in fact they wanted to linger more and wished they could return in the hotel, it was indeed a good hotel except for its location and the untidy stairs.

    Hotel That Keeps You Fit."because no elevator”
    hospitable and kind staff
    It was my first time in Subic and First time to spend out of town with my wife. We look at the internet hotels where we can stay for 3 days, while searching for the hotel we look for the facilities and the location as well. And Ridgecrest Garden Hotel has a perfect location because it is walking distance at SM Olongapo and Harbor point... although they don't serve meals but the location is easy access to commercial establishments and malls. The hotel have friendly and hospitable staff, wherein they assist their client to the best of their ability.

    near malls, shops, and restaurants; ease of access to public transportation
    We definitely got the value of our money during our stay in this hotel. Location is great. It's just a walking distance to malls, shops, and diners. Customer service was great. The receptionists and the owners were prompt in attending to our needs and in offering their services. Room was clean and well maintained. However, I think the remote control and TV needs to be replaced as it clearly has discolored monitor (such a pain in the eyes!). They also do not serve breakfast but since its just near diners and restaurants, this wouldn't be a problem. Overall, we were satisfied with our stay in the hotel that we extended for another night.

    My advice: Don’t book here.”
    There are better options in Olongapo and Subic Bay Freport Zone for the ff reasons: 1. I paid for a Deluxe room but it is not a Deluxe room. The room is so small. The shower is too small; as if they just tried their best to make it look like a shower room. It is very pricey for its quality. 2. It’s dirty. It is very obvious that it is not well-maintained. The sink has cobwebs and a spider. There are small black particles in the sink and on the bathroom floor. 3. There were cockroaches in the bed. I woke up because of those. Disgusting. 4. No elevator. 5. No toiletries, only a soap bar. For the price of a “Deluxe” room, shouldn’t there be at least a disposable toothbrush and toothpaste? 6. I was supposed to arrive at around 2pm but arrived past 3pm in the afternoon. The room should be ready before I arrived but no. They only prepared the room when I got there. I advise my fellow travellers to not book at this hotel. There are better hotels nearby.

    Very terrible experience”
    When I checked in in the afternoon, everything seemed acceptable, at least worth the price. However, when I came back from my tour in Subic Bay and opened the door, a very big COCKROACH just appeared on my room floor! I asked the conciege to solve it and they did send the cleaner to do it. Howevrr, when I waited for the problem to be solved, the conciege asked me "was the cockroach flying?!" just as if these kinds of problem occur very often... After the first cockroach problem, I went back to the room and hoped everything would be better, yet I saw a second COCKROACH on the table immediate. So I really can't stand it and check on right away...I would rather sleep on the beach then sleep with all the cockroaches in the wonderful hotel. By the way, the hotel is very noisy as well. You can hear the TV sound of the other rooms like it is playing in your room. However, compare to the cleanliness issue, this is not even worth mentioned. 簡單來說,這間飯店我一進房間門就看見兩隻蟑螂,所以我就退房了,隔音也不好,我寧可睡在沙灘上也不想住在這兒。

    Staff great but noisy rooms”
    Near SM and Harbor Point (restauarants, shops, and grocery stores); competent friendly staff;
    Lobby is on third floor, and rooms are on 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors, but there is no elevator; however the staff was great in helping with luggage. Rooms were large and had basic but satisfactory furnishings (must ask for a room with a refrigerator with a slightly higher cost). The rooms have no windows since the building is immediately adjacent to other buildings. The front rooms do have windows, but due to the bar/nightclub right next door having its speakers outside (!), those rooms are incredibly noisy at night. (Staff said that they have complained to the mayor's office, but nothing good ever has happened.) After a couple nights of little sleep because of the loud speakers, we transferred to another room. There is no restaurant, but there are several within a few blocks. Harbor Point is a really nice mall. We had been in Olongapo many years ago and are saddened by the crowding of vendors on the sidewalks, the lack of repairs to the sidewalks, and the noise (jeepneys without mufflers!); the beaches are just not has clean as they used to be and are littered with trash nowadays. Olongapo needs to clean up before it becomes worse.
