        The property is conveniently located near shopping malls and restaurants. Hotel staff are friendly. Bell service is efficient. Except the annoying procedure wherein the front desk staff asked me to show my booking from my laptop despite him seeing my name on his guest list and verifying through my passport that I gave him and then being subjected to a stupid question “what currency did you use to pay?” That’s the last thing I want to hear after a long flight!!!

        Not worth the money”
        Agoda price is better than the "special deal" they offer to a corporation. Rooms are old, aircon is super noisy, last month i had to change room because the aircon was vibrating so much that the bed was shaking. This week the bed sheets were stained with some dry human-fluids-looking stuff on it that was clearly not washed. The girls were quick to change the beddings on my request, but this not really acceptable anyway. Half of the rooms face the main road with traffic until 3 am and they will just give you the first one available, without caring about its location. Water pressure depends on the floor and the day and same for internet in the room. Not worth the 1200p. Better options around the same area. We have been coming here for years but this was definelty the last itme.

        Good value for money.”
        Location wise, Maxwell Hotel is really a good place to stay. It's near convenience stores, restaurants and very accessible. They got clean rooms, comfortable beds though the pillow was really small. Functioning hot/cold shower and a working wifi with a great speed (I was able to work in the room). They provide soap and shampoo, but NO toothbrush and toothpaste so you better bring one. P.S. They will let you deposit 1000 pesos (bring extra money). Overall, it was a great stay.

        The staff was very stiff, however the room was okay. The flush in our bathroom did not work initially and the shower was weird. I would suggest an improvement in the bathroom cleanliness. Room is okay and access to the road is a bonus point.

        the room is big enough for two persons, the aircon was excellent, the cable tv was not that good coz the connection was not stable, good lighting in the room, has a big cabinet, got a slight issue w/ the key (of removing it from the slot of powering the room) and the bathroom was not that clean & sort of faulty showerhead. Overall it was a great overnight stay but for its price i'll check other hotels in the area.

        Its a good hotel, the location is across the street from McDonalds and a convenience store (kinda pricey) which was nice. We stayed in a suite, which was small for a suite (one room) but a large room. We stayed 2 nights and the first breakfast we had, we were late (after 10am) but they still gave us a small portion of scrambled eggs, sausage and rice. The next day we got there early enough for the small buffet, which was adequate. The staff were wonderful, helpful and respectful. we would stay there again. One thing that was also nice is the quiet location and no people outside asking for money or trying to sell you trinkets

        Sometimes getting a cab is difficult but the front desk staff will help you arrange for one. Not a deal breaker though.

        Maxwell hotel is clean with great employees. Good location short walk to Osmena Circle. I have stayed at numerous hotels in this area and have found the Maxwell to be the best for the price. Included breakfast at Maxims restaraunt but I found food to be cold when we ate there at 8 am. The room was clean and modern, comfortable beds with good CR, hot water, Cold aircon, nice mini mart in the lobby for last minute needs. I would recommend Maxwell to any one.

        Won't be coming back.. Ants and Mosquitoes. No Meals. Old and Run-down.”
        Nope, not happy with my stay here. 1.) Place is run-down. Old. Bathroom looks unkept. Towels are old. 2.) As I need to go online to work, there is no WIFI. Receptionist says there's WIFI, but believe me, there's none. Even followed their instructions that a browser will open up where you key in the password. Nope, no browser opening at all. Useless. 3.) Mosquitoes. Luckily, I have an OFF lotion with me. 4.) Ants. Seriously, bought a salad and planned to eat it for breakfast. Woke up, ants were all over it. Goodbye breakfast. 5.) If you don't want to go out, won't recommend Maxwell as they don't serve any meals here. The staff will just point you to Cebu Lechon Belly which is at ground floor, that's it. So no room service. Overall, you'd get value-for-money stays with meals in other CHEAPER inns and hotels.

        We were able to book at AGODA for our stay here. ”
        But, we were not informed that there will be a 1,500 deposit upon check-in. Me and my partner were very disappointed because we can have spend the money though for a week and yes, we understood that in some hotels there will be a deposit but for our stay here it was the first time that it reaches 1,500. It might be better if you will be informing customers the next time if that hotel has a deposit upon check in so that we will be given a heads up. The room is quite ok, the location of the tv it could be better if it is at the center so that guests can see it clearly especially that the telebvision is quite small and also there is no dental kit.

I told them that they were on the top of the list in the search..... long story short they would not allow my small puppy that I bought that day, they also did not have any info only reservation and did not receive my email about me bring a dog. Parking was BS .... I one to Uncle Toms Cabin which was great only 100 peso more.
