Overnight Stay at Catadman Lodge

Typhoon Ramon forced me to get stranded at Danao City. The Philippine Coast Guard doesn’t allow any vessel to leave the pier. Because of this, I was forced to look for hotel that is affordable and located within the city. I asked one of the crew of Jollibee Danao and he told me to try Catadman Lodge.

Catadman Lodge entrance

Catadman Lodge is located in Barangay Sabang, Danao City. Visitors had to walk along a poorly maintained dirt road to get to the lodge. Catadman Lodge can easily be reached from center of Danao City. Just go to the public terminal across Gaisano Mall and ride the Sabang bound tricycle there. Tricycle fare costs 8 pesos per person. Buses from Cebu City pass by the entrance of the dirt road to the lodge.

 The Jollibee employee is correct when he said that Catadman Lodge is an affordable hotel in Danao City. Overnight stay at lodge cost me 350 pesos. I chose the cheapest room that is not air-conditioned and doesn’t have its own bathroom. The large ceiling fan in my room is enough to give me a cool night’s sleep. My room is clean and has a bed that is big enough for me. I can say that it is perfect for 350 pesos. Visitors who chose the cheap room can use the shared bathroom, which has three separate toilets and three separate showers.

Catadman Lodge is located beside the sea and visitors can go to the beach and take a swim. The beach beside Catadman Lodge is not developed, however, and is rocky. There are parts of the sea that is deep enough and suitable for those who want to take a dip.

Swimming near Catadman Lodge

The sea is cold during my stay at Catadman Lodge that’s why I did not swim. I just went there to take some photo like this ruined boundary wall of Catadman Lodge. I am practicing the rule of threes when taking a photo.

    1. Yes. It is really good for budget travelers. Overnight stay at that is not expensive. The good thing is that the rooms are clean and maintained well.

      They have courteous staff too.

    1. One overnight stay costs 350 pesos. 3 nights stay would be 1,050 pesos. Take note that the price is not updated because the price that is written on this blog post was obtained more than a year ago.

  7. 9.00 a.m. is early for a check-out time. Gosh! Some may still be sleeping. Here, usually it's noon.

    1. I don't why it's 9 AM. Maybe most of their clients just check-in for overnight stay.

  8. Thanks for sharing. I've been looking for info about this hotel for quite some time now and I'm glad you've shared it here. I first heard this inn from expats who are travelling to Camotes. It's not the best out there but it certainly helps you relax and spend the night in safe.
