Solo leisure traveler, that stayed for over one month..
The Orchid Inn is located 1 block from all the action on Walking Street. There are no comparable hotel for the price in the area. Kevin the manager, heads a great team that are friendly and look after your every need. If something's wrong or you need help, expect a knock on your door within seconds. Even when I changed from another hotel to OI, a staff helped me bring my luggage over...with a smile. And unlike other places they have overlapping wifi coverage. So whether you're in your room, shooting pool, or eating a meal poolside, you can still check your email, do Google searches, or stream your favorite movies. I'd be remise not to mention the food. Top notch! And every Sunday evening a live band, that takes requests, and will allow karaoke as well. Also, I'd be remiss not to mention their liberal guest policy. It was never an issue.
Sadly, there is a lack of attention to detail. Orchid Inn is showing signs of wear that need addressing. The rooms are littered with chipped walls, old room service menus with outdated prices, gaudy artwork in the rooms, rusty/clogged bathroom fixtures, low water pressure and rust-smelling water, etc. All could be addressed with one team repairing room by room. Also, the pillows are horribly uncomfortable with hard foam, and impossible to sleep with. And, no blankets, just sheets. But, cleanliness was never an issue; great housekeeping staff.
Regardless of these minor issues, I plan to make the Orchid Inn my go-to haven while in Angeles City.
