Nice staff- very basic and not well maintained
We spent two nights at Strong Tower inn. While we stayed there we found the staff to be very nice, the coffee in the morning was a great bonus and the laundry service to be well priced. The problem was with our room: it was tiny, the air conditioner was really loud and we had a lot of noise coming from the street (our window wasn't really sealed), but the worst thing was that we did not have a working toilet!! We had just a tiny toilet bowl (not even a seat on it) and if we wanted to flush we did it with a bucket. I think comparing to the price we paid we expected to have at least a working toilet.

Hotel was awful. Our room was dirty with muddy marks all over the floor when we checked in. None of the plug sockets worked and sparks coming from them. Towels provided were so old and stale with holes. The bathroom stank of urine and other foul smells. The toilet had no seat or flush and the bucket provided to fill and flush the toilet did not work so bathroom constantly smelt. The shower is right over the toilet as well so you had to shower next to the disgusting toilet. In the middle of the night our air conditioning unit began to rattle really loudly and FELL BACKWARDS out of the wall leaving a HUGE HOLE in our room on the ground floor into the street!! We woke up hotel staff to tell them what had happened and they were so unsympathetic and did not apologise once. One man came to take a look and walked over our bed sheets (the air con. unit was located over the bed) in his dirty bare feet leaving foot prints on our sheets!!! They then asked if they could start doing works to it with hammers etc. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT when we had an early transfer the next morning. We asked could they do it when we were gone as the room was bearable with a fan. We were told we would get a refund as this should not have happened. We are yet to receive this refund or hear any more about it. We never got an apology. Finally, we booked a transfer the day we checked out to the airport in Puerto Princessa and the hotel arranged it said it would pick us up from the hotel at 7am. 7.15am on the morning we have been packed and ready to go for over an hour and no sign of the transfer. Hotel then tells us we have missed our transfer we should have been at the bus terminal at 7am it doesn't pick up from hotel!! Did not apologise once for telling us wrong information, causing us to miss our transfer and leaving us worried and stressed that we would not get to the airport on time!! Did not offer to help arrange another transfer etc. Most disgusting hotel room I'd rather have slept outside. So unclean and smelly and hotel staff so rude and unhelpful. We knew this was a budget hotel and didn't expect much but I don't think a clean room and a working toilet is much to ask. We have backpacked all over the Philippines and know what to expect but this was by far the worst experience. Far better hotels and hostels in el nido for the same price. This place should get shut down it's awful!

Negative: on main road in El nido town, you can hear tricycles honking whole night, very tiny room, there is no space for luggage, no WARDROBE, no table. Positive: really really strong WIFi signal, bigger bathroom with good water pressure.

A Good Place to Stay
The room is quite cheap. This place is not for fancy/luxury travelers, but i can say that this is good enough for a place to stay. The hotel is just 5 minutes away from the beach. I booked directly to the hotel and i paid lesser compare to the prices shown via Internet/booking sites. The highlight of this place are the staff, they are very accommodating especially Ms. Aileen (in the reception) and Sir Dennis. They did everything to assist me. They even booked for my tours and gave me a good discount. Look for Sir Dennis (0910 207 2220) for reservation. He'll give you a good discount both on room reservation and tours.

Not recommended
We was there for 4 nights. There was Filipino toilet flushed with bucket. There were lot of ants in the room. Smell from window was not so good - there were kitchen or something outside. Being there 4 nights was terrible experience.
