Stayed for 1 night while on our way to Siargao Island. Location is perfect since it's very near Port of Surigao where the ferry for Siargao are stationed. Very accommodating staff. You can leave your car at the hotel's parking (while you're in Siargao Island) and pay 100 pesos/night parking fee.

Hotel is nice from inside. Ugly from outside. A bit old, many things need replacement or renovation. Nothing special here, actually a bit overpriced I find. Breakfast is included, what I don't need, better save the money. Didn't like the coffee. Just a short stay before traveling on.

The Filipino dishes at the restaurant and buffet are very tasty. Highly recommended! Here are the downside of the hotel which can easily be fixed. Rooms and...

Got to stay in 2 rooms here. First room was a deluxe room and for a 3.5 star hotel, it was ok. The air conditioning worked well, it had a TV, and was clean. I did not like the bathroom though - I felt it could do with a shower curtain change. Second room was a deluxe Seaview with balcony...

We passed through Surigao city on our way to Siargao island, and spent one night at the Tavern hotel. The location is perfect, right on the water front and walking distance from the pier. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious, and we also had a balcony towards the sea. Breakfast buffet was included, which provided plenty of choice....

Good location walking distance to the ferry terminal. Has a bar EJ's next door that is a cool spot to eat and have drinks. Room is clean and nice view of the harbor. Breakfast isn't bad. Bed is comfortable and AC works well.
