    Helpful Staff, Good Location, Nice Views

    My stay at Martin's was a good one. Our room is very clean and up to par with any western hotel , it's the staff that makes this place great . There is no night life at Basco, Butanes since it is just a small island community, but the owner , Martin, and myself just talked for hours about life in Butanes. For the owner to take time to talk to you while having a beer or two at the end of a long day is a signals good service to me. A very charming Inn

    When thinking of Batanes, everything is great. It became greater when we stayed at Martin's Inn, the owner made sure that we were okay and comfy with the stay. Not even that, he also spent some time orienting us about the place. Overlooking the pier and just in front of their plaza, overlooking the infamous lighthouse.

    Location is at the center of the town walking distance to airport, Naidi Hils, Basco LIghthouse and Vayang Rolling hills. Town plaza is infront of this Inn. Clean room, accommodating staff, free water and coffee daily. We are 4 in the room, the space is just ok for medium size people. The aircon is a bit noisy but we did not use it most of time since its winter in Batanes during our visit and the toilet sink is sometimes clogging. Need to fix aircon and sink at room 205. All in all its ok, we will book here again on our next visit.

    Amazing Family Hospitality”

    Stayed here for 3-4 days, visiting Batanes for the first time, solo. Met the owner ("Gino") who was very friendly, had a one hour + chat and told me the history of the town, and his involvement with it since the 90s. Signed up for the tour they do, saw the north, south and other island over three days, his son came along and was also great in sharing stories of the place, helping to arrange everything, and ensuring I had a good time and felt very welcome when traveling solo. Everything was punctual, meals, driver, drop offs and pick ups for dinner. It is a very remote province, so food is mainly imported from Luzon (although there are local producers for some things) , water pressure in shower isn't great, and some other small things, but such a great family make it a super enjoyable and worth visiting, to get the most that Batanes has to offer. Great place to disconnect from internet, phone, spend time living very leisurely and just thinking about life, while surrounded by a beautiful landscape. Right in the CBD of Basco, 5 min drive from the airport, walking distance to everything, and they can rent you a bicycle.

    location, accomodation, and staff

    The inn is centrally located in the city proper, with it being along the national road and just outside is the city park.The place is also one of the most well-lit area, and one can go night biking (you can rent at the inn) with the place being safe and all. Our booking was kind of abrupt for the holy week so we weren't able to plan ahead book for our tours for our 4D/3N stay. Dr. Querubin Martin is probably one of the most accomodating hotel owners we've met as he helped us plan and carry out our trips for the whole stay. And when tour guides was unavailable, he himself went along with us to guide us along the local hotspots. Rooms were casual and even has an extra bed undernearth capable of accomodating 3 persons. Heater and aircon were in good condition. Overall, rooms are tidy and neat. Transportation wasn't much of a problem as everything can either be walked, or a tricycle is always on call (you can ask Dr.Querubin for a cp number as tricycles aren't allowed to loiter in the city). And for tours, the inn's van will be used, just make sure to inform them ahead if possible. Dr. Querubin will check in from time to time again to make sure everything's taken cared of and if given the time, will chat with you to immerse you more in the local scenery. Our stay in Batanes was pleasant, and we will surely recommend others.

    The veranda here is perfect for the view of lighthouse. Location is at the center of the city. Nearby to restaurants, coffee shops, bike/motorcycle rental shops and just in front of the park. I would just like to suggest to have the airport transfer included from the inclusion since most of the hotels/lodges in batanes include this. Also, there were some confusion with the price of Agoda vs to the price that we need to settle since our booking is pay at the hotel. I would suggest that in order to avoid this, proper communication to Agoda should be taken care of. Other than that, I highly recommend this hotel.

    The location is great as it is situated across the plaza and national road. It is walking distance to some of the famous food houses. At the balcony, you can actually see the Lighthouse in Naidi Hills while eating breakfast. The room are big and bed are comfortable, towels are nice. Staff are helpful and there's always free coffee at the reception. But.. To the owner, PLEASE change the door knobs of the bathroom and the room. They are so rusted that you don't want to touch it. The towel racks are also rusted! The bidet hose are to stiff you'll have trouble controlling it. If they will change them these will one of the best INN in Basco.

    The manager did his best for us lending us some items we needed but couldn't be bought in Basco. It is very central and as everything in Basco is close by, even the airport can be walked in 15 minutes. Be aware the wifi was not available when we were there and internet access is difficult to find in Batanes. You need to go elsewhere in Basco and buy wifi at 100 pesos a time. ,

    1. centrally located. 2. Friendly staff.

    The room was small but clean with a very small bathroom & shower. Pepito was very helpful as a guide and drove us to the local sights and vistas. The location was centrally located across from a park and one could walk to all parts of the town. Brown and black-outs are expected and happened every day of our June stay. One day the power went off at 1 p.m. and did not return until midnight. This was unusual. The airport had no power on our return flight to Manila. Of course, this is not the fault of the hotel. The weather was hot and humid as expected and the people are very friendly. Bicycles or motor bikes are the main mode of transportation. Everyone is friendly and there is no crime. It was a great experience to reach back in time to an easier way of life.

Breakfast: Served on the balcony, very convenient and personalised. Set plate of rice, meat, egg, coffee/juice. Staff will as you to pick your choice breakfast day before. WiFi was decent inside room. Bathroom was super tiny, but manageable. Stairs only, bit of a struggle for seniors. The resto at the ground floor was good for lunch/dinner. There were food stalls at the town plaza, open every night when we were there. Affordable seafood, fresh dishes.

    Taken for a Ride”

    It has a good location near the town proper.

    Batanes is one of the most beautiful places I've seen in the Philippines. Martin's place could have done much better for us to have had an unforgettable experience. The deficiencies are as follows: 1. They have a cable t.v. that does not work. We were told by the staff that it can get 1 channel but it was not true.2. The simple breakfast that they serve was expensive and not good. You can eat at a nearby restaurant cheaper and taste better. The appear quite friendly and helpful but all for a price. For example, they will reserve a restaurant for you and drive you there without you knowing that they will charge you P250 for a 2 minute ride. Or offer to pick you up or drive you to the airport which is 2 minutes away without you knowing that it is again for P250 a ride. The owner will even offer you his bike without you knowing that he will charge you for it. It would have been better if the guests are informed in advanced about these charges. They also offer a package tour that is too expensive compared to what you can get outside. With all these shortcomings, I don't think they deserved a rating higher than 4.
