Sleep is okay, clean room, good aircon and strong water, with heated shower. And Strong WIFI plus parking security guard. However, breakfast was not appropriate for a Hotel (cup of rice+spam+egg+coffee or corned beef or hotdog) Not even a Tomato on the side. Leaking Bidet, that McGiver needs to improvise to avoid slipping on the Toilet. No complimentary Water, No...

The hotel has a great location along the main highway of Lipa but not quite easy to find since you have to access a ramp to reach the lobby. Rooms have modern minimal design and are spacious with big lockers, dining table and toiletries. Quiet atmosphere and relaxed lighting except for the noisy ongoing repairs which were not advised to...

They reuse the comforters and beddings. When we requested for replacement, the housekeeping staff gave us another used comforter and sheets..Gross!!! Very unhygienic and POOR SERVICE! This hotel is beside the highway, expect loud noise outside. No elevator. No vault and electronic door lock, not safe to stay. This hotel needs upgrade and improvement. We are very unsatisfied!

This hotel is better than the other one. It was clean and decent. Fee is not as expensive as that of la corona. Room is bigger. Cr/bath is also bigger. Water is sufficient. Drainage was not clogged. Room smells clean. Staffs are friendly. Wifi ready as well. Although in the morning, you will also hear construction noise. Over all stay...

Hotel Cara is easy to find and located on the main road in Lipa. From there, you can go anywhere from downtown to the STAR expressway. Was just staying for the night in Lipa and we just got their 12 hour rate. It was reasonable eventhough there was no breakfast. Again, we just needed a place to sleep and this...

So clean, and neat. Wifi (fast) and Cable TV is available. Aircon is OK. Just choose the room farther from the streets. Good choice for travelers, overnight stay. Just get something to munch and drink in stores nearby (Big Ben area)

My boyfriend stays here whenever he visits. The rooms are decently sized and clean. The beds, tv and furniture are new. Breakfast is ok. Security is good and privacy is all right. Many fastfood chains will deliver. Btw good value for money!

I was originally booked in one of the famous hotel here in Lipa but needs to transfer to Cara for three nights, did not expect anything good, but the experienced was wonderful. The hotel has a very spacious room for a Standard type (a family of 4-6 can fit in!). The comfy and soft bed was a pleasure, too bad...

Stayed for 2 weeks. You might get lower price by contacting the hotel rather than using agencies. 3 min walk to Robinson mall and less than 5 min drive to SM mall. Very good bed, clean and good aircon. Hotwater, free bottle water, fridge, big rooms and very friendly staff. Seems to me like the best hotel in Lipa city.Regards...

I love the place. It is so cozy and comfy. Relaxing ambience. And the most warm and accommodating staff. Well compensated budget. Modern styled rooms. Air-conditioned, flat screene televisions, snug sofa-bed, hot and cold shower and wifi access area. A place to chill out.
