Sampaguita Inn: Ideal Accommodation for a Tight Budget

I’ve heard this hotel name from keyword research in Adwords. I’ve discovered it’s trending from tourists associating the city of Davao. I didn’t know the room rates are incredibly cheap. My cousin told me one room can costs 475 Pesos.

Email from clients

I inquired about Davao’s accommodation since I have a client who is coming to meet me here in Davao. I’ve recommended Casa Leticia because of the convenience of the location. Also, this is owned by the Robillos, Blogie Robillo, who had been my blogmate and mentor for quite some time. But the client looked for cheaper and nearer my area. So I suggested this hotel after learning that the rates can cost from 300 to 500 Pesos.

Sampaguita Inn is located in Corner Mount Mayon and Camus Streets in Davao City. You can see it when you come to pass by at Quirino Street.

The price is closer to the inns and pension houses in Cebu. An ideal accommodation if you come to stay in Davao and want to save money for a tight budget.

However, according to some reviews in TripAdvisor the rooms are not that clean than those in first class hotels. Well, it’s kind of expected because of the cheap room rates. Here’s one review from TripAdvisor:

I arrived in the Davao City for a review class together with my 2 friends and has no place to stay yet so we opted to check in in Sampaguita Inn. The room has a very poor maintenance. I wonder if they have changed the bedding from the last checked-out customers at all. The staff aren’t accommodating nor approachable.
