“What a dump”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

Don't ever stay here, its cheap but your still getting robbed.

The toilets don't flush, it takes 30 mins for tepid water to finally come dripping out of the shower head. The rooms are disgusting, the bathroom was disgusting. Just a minging, filthy dump.
The only good thing is its located near some decent bars and restaraunts

Reviewed 23 January 2010

We weren't looking for first class hotels but come on! the place is quite rundown for my liking. But as we have no booking of any kind when we arrived in Cagayan De Oro and it was nearing Christmas and we were all too tired having flown direct from England-Manila-CDO, we resolved to stay. I kept telling my teenager to stay positive and to look forward to better things during our trip (we were going island hopping after CDO). Anyways, back to Discovery Hotel...

You will Discover that the hotel looks okay on the outside but kinda rotten on the inside. And this isn't a joke. The room (ground floor) we stayed in is too small for a family of 4 including a baby. There is a window that opens to a firewall! I asked for an extra bed of which came a very very FILTHY mattress. Thankfully they do bother to wash their sheets pretty well and just disguises whatever smells emanated from the ghastly mattress. Then there was the blocked drainage of the bath where you take the shower, and the toilet seat was also broken. Every evening some of the staff can't seem to lower their voice down when they talk to each other as you can hear them yelling and shouting in the lobby. It's a shame that the friendliness and good customer service of the staff have been overshadowed by the horrid status of the hotel. Mr Baustita (the owner)...time to wake up, sir and do something about your hotel before you lose your hotel business.
