If you want to spend your vacation in the Philippines’ Summer Capital but afraid of the expenses, there are actually a lot of cheaper alternatives available, and one of them is Ever Lodge Baguio.
Rooms and Rates
This place can be put under the category of a two star or budget hotel, although the term motel has also been used. The charge for the rooms here range from Php 320 to Php 650. That is probably as cheap as it can get in the city; if you are only going to stay for a few hours in the night, the rate is only Php 65. Even then, the place comes with cable TV, a telephone you can use, as well as a bathroom with shower (hot and cold options available).
Amenities and Accommodations
The Ever Lodge Baguio does not have a lot of services or facilities to speak of (understandably so given the price) but this is made up for the fact that it is not that far from the city. For example, Jade Restaurant is very close to it, so you can have something to eat without traveling too far from the lodge. Also, if you traverse the Marcos Highway, you will eventually reach the Baguio General Hospital, and from there you only need to make a left turn before you get to Session Road and all the stores, malls and commercial establishments.
Another great thing about the place: from it you can view the Summer Capital of the Philippines in all its natural glory; there are few buildings and homes here, so you can see the mountains and skies clearly, the way they have been for millennia.
Location and Contact Information
The Ever Lodge Baguio is right along the long stretch of Marcos Highway. It is actually quite near to the Goldrich Construction and Trading Compound and when you see the aforementioned landmark the inn will be close by. If you are going to take a jeepney, you need to have about Php 12 in hand. Those that travel along Magsaysay Avenue can take you to the lodge. A taxi ride will probably cost about Php 50. All in all, it is less than half an hour from the city itself. Their phone number is 4465361.
Granted, the Ever Lodge Baguio is no luxury hotel, but if you are just in need of a cheap place to stay that will allow you to sleep comfortably, relax and enjoy the view, there are few places that can give it to you for such a low price in the City of Pines.
