Stayed only for an overnite. Aircon is not running smoothly, ceiling fan has no cover (hence you need to be careful, as it might scrape your face), bunk beds with the fan about less than 12 inches from hitting it when you climb. staff are very friendly however you have a feeling that you are in a slum area when you walk in the property convenient to public market and bus terminals

Not for picky ones. Just fine for an overnight
Budget hotel, not for picky ones. Just fine for an overnight. Not expecting much but some minus points were: the aircon was not that cold, clogged sink, garbage from the previous users was still on the toilet, TV and remote was not working well but they replaced it after we complained. The other concerns were not addressed even when we talked twice to the front desk.

Budget Friendly Lodge
My friends and I planned a trip to Baler like 1 week before the trip date. When I called hotels near the beach, all were already fully booked. I texted and called different hotels in Baler and this hotel was swift enough to reply on my inquiries. Ate Josie, the owner, was the one who contacted me and was able to convince me to stay at her lodge. She was kind enough to waive the down payment and the early check in charge. We arrived in Baler at around 6AM and she was the one who greeted us at the reception area. we booked 4 rooms for this trip and she gave us a very cheap price of P800/room double occupancy and P1,200/room triple sharing. Before we left Manila, I looked some reviews of this lodge and one of the reviews said that they have friendly and accommodating staff which is VERY TRUE! They smile at you anytime they see you and would ask what else do we need. ROOMS: Don't expect too much from the room. Our room has 2 double size bed which has 2 small pillows (not that soft). Bed linens that are okay. Small Bathroom with no hot water but it has shower, small mirror, pail and a dipper, no trash can though. They also provide two towels which are not so comfortable to rub on your skin. (luckily, I brought my own towel with me) The room has no window nor view. It has a small box type TV with cable, ceiling fan and air conditioner. PROS: 1. Friendly and accommodating owner and staff. 2. The lodge is just beside the public market. 3. They have big kitchen for those who wanted to cook. 4. Parking lot 5. Near the bus terminal 6. Free early check in and late check out 7. Centrally located near Museo De Baler, must try restos, Tourism centre, etc. CONS: 1. Parking area is quite narrow. You cannot just easily get out if vehicles are parked at the parking area at the same time. you need to move your vehicle first if you are blocking the way out. 2. Noise of the tricycle can be heard inside the room. Poor sound proofing. 3. My friend at the other room requested for a massage. The receptionist told my friend that they only have male masseuse which my friend thought that they just don't want to give the massage service that night. 4. Not so maintained room. Cleanliness is quite an issue for me. They need to scrub the CR wall regularly to eliminate smudges. and make sure that room is free of odor. Overall, the lodge I paid for was worth my money. And I will stay here again if I come to visit Baler in the near future.

No choice.
Not worth Php1,500 for an aircon room for 2 pax but we had no choice rather than to sleep on the car. All other hotels were fully booked that weekend. We had issues with parking since most of the other guests had to double park and block the exit. Had to wait for hours before they arrive.. Had to commend the staff and owner. They were very accommodating and pleasant.

Budget friendly^_^ for a tight traveler hehhe. Accommodating staff since the cashier con receptionist is only one you'll need to wait and be patient when the time she can assist you:p room can be negotiable for fees and your choice of room depends on the availability. There's no trash can and no big mirror too which I'm always looking forward in a room:p. No hot water too for the shower/c.r. so bear with the cold water. The room we had is only P1800 for 4 person good for six so not bad if you really want to go to Baler. They also provide tour guide for P800 covered all the tourist spot can be visited in a day. If you want to hire they're vehicle its P3,000.

    Staying at El Trophine Lodge is a good choice when you are visiting Poblacion.

    The hotel has a very good location, also near the Dr. Juan C. Angara Airport (BQA), which is only 7.05 km away.

    This hotel is very easy to find since it is strategically positioned close to public facilities.
