Where I stayed in Iligan City: Staylite

Rene's diner and pension was house was my first choice after checkig out the (outdated) rates online.

I thought Rene's would be convenient for It is just along Roxas ave where jeeps bound for Buru'un (for Maria Christina and Tinago falls) pass by. 

Meantime, fr Gaisano mall, I walked towards Rene's until I am getting to this dark area. I backed out. I actually wanted go hang out at least somewhere and a walking distance away.

I walked back while I ask for directions to Mango Tree Pension house. The tricycle (which is actually a padyak/sikad/tri bike) offered to drop me for P20. I would normally just walk but I thought what is P20 to add up to his day's yield.

Then I asked him about Staylite which I have also come across in my research. He said it was also just close by and he can drop me for P20 too. 

It wasn't close.. It was perhaps 350m away. And looking at several other makeshift seats in his bike, I asked him how many people he can carry in his bike.. Surprisingly.. He said 8.

Meantime, upon check in, I noticed they have 8-hour rates too. And rates aren't so bad for how clean an oderly their facility is. The only problem was, there's hardly reception in the rooms. I had to leave a small opening in the door to get wifi/3g.

*they also charge a fine for smoking in the rooms.
