The only reason why I didnt give this a one star is the fact that their location is very convenient to almost every possible place to visit in this city, plus i came here on a weekday, thats it, cos if I had to just judge the place based on its accomodation it would score a much lower rating, I mean the place seems to be a renovated spanish ancestral home, and the place is definitley not sound proof, footsteps, people talking outside, and worse part is during the evening on weekends, traffic sound and the merrymaking from night clubs can all be experienced right in the comfort of your own room. Price is reasonable cos you get free breakfast for two, butwhen they say free, they really mean free, food is basically cafeteria food, poorly prepared accompanied with powdered juice drink tht pales in comparisson with their actual menu tht they serve in their restaurant which has a better lineup. But if someone would ask me if I was willing to stay here again, answer is yes, ill just avoid the weekdays, holidays and their free food

We knew that staying at the Honeycomb Tourist Inn would have ruined our otherwise pleasant holiday in this part of the country. We were deceived by the photos we saw in their website that looked ok for a night's stay. I'm not sure if the rooms on the second floor were any better, but we were assigned rooms 1, 2 and 3 on the ground floor and all six of us were speechless with dismay when we entered our rooms. The sheets in our room were thinning with age, the beds seemed like they were homemade by the neighborhood carpenter and painter. I won't go on to describe the bathroom. Suffice it to say that I didn't want to use it. Security is likewise a bit dodgy as room 3's doorknob appears to have been jammed open.

We packed our bags to have dinner and coffee and wondered how I could have had a massive mis-hit in my choice of accommodation that came highly rated in Trip Advisor. In all our trips out of town I am assigned to research and book our accommodations and I've hardly ever committed an error in judgement. This time I was terribly embarrassed by my mistake. When we returned to our rooms, they were inhabited by mosquitoes and our beds had ants crawling on them.

To be fair, the lady at the front desk was pleasant. So I rate "service" ok - but it doesn't make up for our disappointment with the rooms we got. Location is perfect - overlooking the sea - but then again, there are a number of much, much better accommodations on the same strip.

Having said that, we all decided to check out and we booked ourselves in a hotel 100% much better place two blocks away. It rated slightly lower than Honeycomb on Trip Advisor but I realize it was because of the ongoing renovation. For an additional P300 per room, we enjoyed a good night's sleep in more modern rooms that had new towels, newer bedsheets and duvets, and a bathroom you wouldn't think twice stepping into for a refreshing shower.

I don't mind budget accommodation but I must say I would not recommend this to anyone even if he were traveling on budget.

Very close to everything, right across from the sea. Staff very friendly & helpful. Hotel is old & run down but the room was clean. Band playing till around midnight then Zumba music across the road at 5am. We only stayed one night so it was ok. Not suitable for anyone with children. Breakfast included was quite ok !

The only good thing here is cold beer. The food is very basic, the service is non existent. They leave empty bottles at the table, the wait staff deliver the food in a random order. The concept of waiting on tables is unknown to the staff. If you want cold affordable beer I recommend (you need to get their attention for another). If you want anything more go elsewhere.

The place is for party people. The band playing the night I stayed was mediocre. They play till midnight and then afterwards you'll hear the disco music from next door and that ended around 02:00.

Location: close to many places of interest. The port is not so far (if you plan on going to either Cebu or Siquijor.

Good size room. The bedding and towels look old and dirty. Wouldn't hold on to the staircase railing (it's got a grimy feel to it).
It is relatively cheap and you get what you pay for.

The food is oily, burnt and basic or uncooked.
Zero taste.
The spaghetti overcooked and smell of plastic.
The sauce of carbonara smell of milk.
The prices high and surely not worth.
DO NOT EAT THERE!

The only things I liked about this place was the refrigator, the location and the free breakfast (but the taste was just okay). But overall, thumbs down.

We rented a family deluxe room ( room number 1) downstairs because we thought that it would be okay and it saves us the effort from climbing up the stairs but I guess we are wrong.

The room wasn't cleaned properly ( the floor was not mopped ). The aircon wasn't functioning well. Even though it's in the lowest temperature (17c) it's still very hot in the room. We were soaking with sweat while sleeping. The comfort room was much cooler than the room itself. The bed sheets and the pillows don't smell that good. When it rained, the water went inside the windows and my bed was soaked with water.

Maybe for some the live band was a good thing, but for us who are tired and wanted to sleep early, we didn't get to sleep properly because the band stayed late ( 12 midnight - 1 ).

Although the location was nice. I enjoyed looking at the sea even in our room. The pedicab drivers know the place so its easy to tell them the location.

For those who want to stay up late and want to have fun like going to bars and hearing some live band ( their band was good ) then maybe you would like to stay here. But if you wanted to have a good night sleep without some noise and a clean room, then i wouldn't recommend staying at this place. All in all we were not happy staying at this place.

The honeycomb tourist Inn was very affordable along the boulevard of Dumaguete City . We stayed in Room 18 but the air conditioner was unable to provide enough cooling especially around after lunch due to the room being hit by afternoon sun. We transferred to room12 which was bigger and actually the airconditioning system was better . They had complimentary breakfast . WiFi was okay . The drawback to this place is that it gets really loud because being on main street you can hear the pedicabs , theres loud zumba music early in the morning , and i think there was couple nights when the bands play til past 1 am in the morning .

my team of 18 arranged for rooms in this inn but realized that we would be unable to maximize our compli bfast since the front desk has severely mentioned that the coffeeshop only opens at 6 am and could not accomdate a packed bfast. we were taking the 6 am fastcraft to siquijor.unlike other hotels that we stayed in as a group ( we normally travel in big groups 2x a year), they were very difficult to negotiate with, they just told us bfast is forfeited. we had wanted to avail of it the following day coming from siquijor! and they also did mot agree to the rate adjustment! poor customer service indeed!! if ur looking for a place to stay where customer experience is first on the list... this is NOT it!

As part of my job as Engineer, I was assigned in Dumaguete to execute one of our project. I and my colleague reached this peaceful city after a 4 hour land travel from Bacolod with our service vehicle. At first we don’t know where to stay as we are not familiar with the place. We visited the local tourism office of Dumaguete and we’re given the complete list of hotels and resorts. We’ve settled our first night at Coco Hotel but we are not satisfied with the quite ambiance of Coco Hotel. Next day, we explored some other hotels that will give us satisfaction for our more than 1 month stay. Until we found Honeycomb hotel, with the location fronting the sea, bar with sing along and billiards, below 0 beers, and the most charming Jerlyn – the front desk officer that gave more than enough reason to stay in Honeycomb. Of course this Hotel is not a 5 star hotel but the price really worth. Also, do try the Crispy Pata. It’s the tastiest Crispy Pata that I’ve ever taste. During our stay (2010 and 2011) they had acoustic nights every Thrursday night.

I’ve spoken to the people at Honeycomb and they are unaware of any problems regarding their communication system. I’d suggest using an agency such as this or Agoda etc to make your booking. Sorry I could not be of more help.
