Sagada Hotels, Guesthouses and Resorts
Scattered throughout Sagada are affordable and welcoming accommodation options. Inns, hostels and guesthouses are generally clean, comfortable and fortunately due to the regulated prices, largely inexpensive. Yay for travellers everywhere!
Because Sagada is a small, charming town with around 11,000 inhabitants, pre-booking during holidays and peak-season is highly recommended. Another thing to remember when travelling Sagada is to bring your own towels. Most of the lodges and inns do not provide these for guests and dripping in the cool, mountain air post-shower is generally not an advisable way to start the day.
With pretty viewing decks and a reasonable PHP200 per night, Sagada Residential Lodge is perfect for those who are trying to stretch their spending money. Offering free Wi-Fi, hot showers, a full kitchen and television area, Residential Lodge is an excellent place to catch some z’s and meet other travellers. Located in the center of town on the popular South Road and yet still surrounded by pine trees and mountain views, this lodge checks all the backpacker boxes.
Hot showers, decent Wi-Fi and affordable prices, Grandma’s Yellow House offers tremendous bang for your buck. Great reviews on this centrally-located inn have flooded the internet and the consensus seems to be a big thumbs-up for those staying at Grandma’s. Motorbike rental and a souvenir shop on site, this inn is declared to be clean, convenient and includes a self-catering kitchen area. Travellers can opt for shared or private bathrooms or can even decide to splash out a little and rent an entire apartment for themselves. Yellow House is situated in front of Yoghurt House on South Road and is impossible to miss.
Alibama Inn & Restobar is an excellent choice for those on a tight budget and looking for a modest, comfy room for the night. Popular with backpackers for its affordability, great location and communal kitchen and entertainment areas, this inn can be found above the popular restaurant, Pinikpikan Haus. Single, double and four-person dorm rooms are on offer.
Just a stone’s throw from the Activity Guide Centre lies Indigenous Inn with its clean, comfortable rooms and the promise of hot showers, free Wi-Fi and the option of a private balcony. Well within the margins of shoestring budgets, this inn is great value for money and even offers guests a sneak peek into the lives of the locals through the windows and balconies. The host is exceptionally friendly and helpful and that combined with the fleece blankets on all the bed and the help-yourself, hot water station ensures a warm and happy stay.
For warm, homey ambiance and a secluded stay amongst the pines, one should opt for Misty Lodge and Café. The slow Wi-Fi encourages patience but the service, restaurant on site and friendly hosts make up for this in quality and generous hospitality. Photographs on the walls, plenty of books and the abundance of owl paraphernalia give this lodge a comfortable and cosy air. Slightly outside of the main town, with expansive views and a log fire; Misty Lodge is the ideal getaway for those looking for affordability amid nature. Be sure to try the homemade yoghurt!
Wake up to the smell of fragrant blossoms, scrumptious cuisine and fresh, mountain air. For slightly steeper prices and enhanced rustic romance, Rock Inn and Café has gorgeous, wooden rooms right on an orange orchard. Offering sweeping views of the citrus fruits and mountains, this cosy inn is a wonderful choice for travellers looking for a unique, special and rural place to stay. Priced at around PHP500 per person per night, Rock Inn has rooms suited to couples, executives as well as bunkrooms for six to eight people. Spend your evenings around a crackling, welcoming fire at this memorable inn on Orange Drive.
