In a short time of my stay in Borongan, I took some time in checking out some places to stay. I found a few good places around town. The city of Borongan is just small and so you can go around town within the day.
We cap off our short vacation by staying at Best Eastern Hotel located in the town of Lalawigan, about 7 kilometers away from downtown. One can take a tricycle which cost around 60 pesos per trip. It’s actually pretty easy to get a tryc that will take you to Lalawigan anytime of the day.
We were welcomed by their friendly staff and made sure that our every needs are taken cared of. People of Borongan really knows the art of hospitality. It feels like we were visitors of their home instead of hotel guest.
Best Easter Hotel is actually a motel type of establishment which is very much suitable since it is located along the National highway. Motorist can rest and relax after a long trip.
We stayed at one of the rooms which cost around 1,300 php a night. All rooms are airconditioned and provided with hot water baths, cabled tv and personal ref. Beds are pretty comfortable too. It was indeed clean and comfy. Since the hotel is a bit far from the downtown food establishment, they also provide yummy meals that is fit for every budget.
If privacy is your priority then this place will suit you the best. It is quiet and cozy unlike most of the hotels and inns found downtown. The beach looks exceptional early in the morning where you can take a dip and watch the sunrise. Indeed one of the best places I have stayed in my visit in Borongan.
