Best Quarantine Hotels in Mabalacat City
$ – Hotel Sogo Dau
A very basic hotel with cheap rooms, great for those OFWs on a tight budget. Located on McArthur Highway, you certainly won’t miss this hotel with its bright red exterior! While the rooms are small, they are clean and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. Food can be ordered from outside of the hotel. WIFI isn’t great and sometimes the hot water doesn’t work, but hey – what do you expect for such a cheap rate? —> Read reviews of Hotel Sogo Dau on Agoda.
$$ – Woodland Hotel
A better option is the Woodland Hotel located in the pleasant and peaceful area of Dau in Mabalacat City Zone, just off the McArthur Highway. The hotel is Korean-run (but they speak English and Tagalog) and so the cuisine at the hotel has a Korean twist. The rooms are clean and spacious with big, comfortable beds, a kettle, fridge and LCD TV with cable. However, it’s fair to say that the design and furniture is a bit dated. It is a 15-minute drive from Clark International Airport. —> Read reviews of Woodland Hotel on Agoda.

$ – OYO 395 ELTI Dormitel
While the rooms at this hotel are basic, they are clean, bright and reasonably priced.

One of the advantages of this hotel is the small kitchenette with a fridge, sink and cupboards to make you feel more at home. Unfortunately, the food at the hotel is a bit overpriced for what you get. —> Read reviews of OYO 395 on Agoda.
