It was a desperate attempt to get accommodations with a view of Baguio's pine trees. After looking at the pic that was featured in Agoda and seeing that the location was near Camp John Hay, I jumped at the listing. Upon arrival at the hotel lobby i already had the impression that it was an old establishment but I was hoping it was at least well maintained. The receptionist was very helpful and patient with our check-in as we haven't filled up the required travel pass and she offered assistance. Later on I found out that the hotel did not have an elevator and we had to bring up our heavy luggage to our 3rd flr bedroom. We booked a quadruple room with a balcony and the beds were big enough for all of us to sleep on. However, on an over-all the room condition was poor; it was as if ever since it was built in the early 2000's this property was never refurbished. Since we only dropped off our stuff in the afternoon I really only realized the sad state the property was in when it was time to retire in the evening. The sliding door to the balcony was facing the road which was quiet enough at night but by 5am was already bustling with vehicles driving by. Even if you closed the sliding doors, the noise from the road below will still wake you. The sliding door also can't be locked which was a bit of a security risk. It did have a good view. The room smelled moldy which was a problem for me because I am asthmatic. The walls were a bit dirty and the furniture too worn out. The bathroom was too dark and you can see mold build up in the shower enclosure. The sliding door to the shower enclosure was broken so it couldn't be shut while showering which made the bathroom floor wet after a bath. The linen looked so shabby and smelled funky that I dreaded using the pillows and blanket so all throughout the night I endured the cold with a hoodie and socks. Lastly, the place had parking and I was expecting a guard would be on 24/7 duty by the parking lot since it didn't have a gate. I happened to go down late that night to get something from my car and I discovered that the guard (who was also the receptionist by night) stayed inside the property with the doors of the hotel closed shut as well as most of the lights in the lobby. So the cars, although "safely" parked in the premises, were easily accessible to anyone. Because of this experience, I decided to book another hotel on my first night.

We often go to Baguio, and we would usually stay at the Microtel Inn, Holiday Inn, or Le Monet. When I tried to book for either of these last week, there were no vacancies. So I took a shot and booked at the South Drive Baguio Manor. What made me decide on booking this place was its proximity to Camp John Hay and its cheaper price compared to the other hotels we have stayed-in in Baguio. In spite of some of the negative reviews I have read about it, I thought it might be worth checking out since it does have a high rank in Agoda. And I'm glad I did because it didn't disappoint. PROS: ~ Affordable price; one night in other hotels is equivalent to a 2- to 3-night stay here ~ Near Camp John Hay ~ Away from the busy city center ~ There's a restaurant at the lobby and another restaurant right across it. ~ Big, spacious rooms ~ Cozy lobby area CONS: ~ No elevator ~ Low water pressure ~ Heater takes too long to work

Never again.The hotel is located along the highway the noise is constant through the night. What makes the place really bad is that the rooms has no proper windows only mosquito screen. Every time a truck passed by the bed shook and the room has been filled up with smog. We complained to the receptionist that they didn't inform us on the website that they have no windows. Their excuse was ventilation. We asked for compensation they offered only a complimentary coffee (that we rejected) for the whole night noise and fumes.

-Walls are filled with molds - bedsheet is dirty -no comforter/ thick blanket provided -Pillows were SUPER smelly -past midnight but you can still hear the people in the lobby pulling chairs and singing karaoke -1500 pesos for standard room is not worth it, this could be compared to 300-400 pesos room in a cheap motel

I've read some of the terrible reviews for this hotel but decided to give it a shot because the price was unbelievably affordable compared to its location and photos. We were not disappointed! The place was surprisingly clean for its price. What I liked the best was that the staff were really helpful and easy to talk to whenever we had requests. Also, the place is near the usual spots we visit like Camp John Hay, Good Shepherd, and the like. I wouldn't advise staying here though if you don't have a car. However if you're bringing a car, note that there's parking but it gets filled up quickly because of the nearby "Secret Garden" cafe. You can just double park your car or return to your hotel way past dinner time to avoid the parking issue. The bathroom is clean and spacious. There's a bidet and the heater works well. The water pressure though is not as high as I would have liked. I think this is a problem though for most hotels in Baguio. I would definitely stay here again if I'm with family or friends. Maybe not for couples. But definitely for bigger groups looking for value.

We thought we would have quiet place to stay in Baguio with a balcony overlooking the "rich greens Teacher's Camp" only to be bothered by the constant traffic noise directly below the balcony. We asked for a change in rooms (when we arrived in the afternoon) but were told that no staff was available to clean the rooms. We were able to transfer the next day to the back which was quiet. Room was okay, enough for the budget price. Lobby/restaurant area was decorated with native things but was dark. Breakfast was good enough.

It was a great place to stay and staff were very accommodating. I prefer a room far from the city so if you are looking for the same, this is a great place to stay. The room was clean although wifi connection is a bit bad. But overall, it is a great place to stay and will definitely go back.

We were welcomed with some flowering plants adorning the foyer, colorful bougainvillea covering its roof and some flowering annuals hanging in the balconies. It feels like entering a quaint, country-style cottage. In the lobby, there are a few rustic but interesting interior pieces such as wooden sculptures, a grand piano and a fireplace. Although it looks old with a worn-out table, the bedroom was spacious and functional with a small ref, tv, large closet and a set of chairs and table that can fit in the balcony. No aircon but it was cold at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast we had was the usual longganiza, daing na bangus, tapa, and pancakes but they were good. With a small price to pay, the stay was worth it.

This is not worth your money. You can find a better place than this. The rooms are dusty and dirty; it felt like going to an old house where no one has lived in for years and then you called to visit so they just removed the drapes from the furniture. Dust everywhere with some bonus cockroaches one in a while. The washroom have molds in the tiles and the flush wont work properly. I was really bad that I decided to check-out on the same day that I checked-in. I asked the staff for a refund or even get my money back for the night that I wont be spending there (booked and paid for two nights, was asking for a refund for one night). But the staff just shoved me off and said that they dont do refunds, didnt even ask why I wanted to leave or if they can offer another room as an alternative. I was fooled by the good reviews I read about this place.

Place was ok. Rooms were dated. It had it's era. Am certain when it was then, this was the place to be. A bit noisy for the roadside rooms Beds were comfortable. Bathroom clean despite it's age. But the view and fog made up for it. Overall, for the price... no complaints.
