WHERE TO SLEEP IN SORSOGON
I stayed in Mercedes Country Lodge located along Rizal Avenue corner Peralta Street. At the time I checked in, there was no available single room so I paid for a twin room. The location is central and is walking distance to anywhere I practically need during my stay. They do not have wifi and restaurant. From Legazpi, I took a van going to Sorsogon. Travel time is less than an hour or so. I arrived in Sorsogon at about 10AM. The first thing I deed is to scout for a place to check-in though I already have in mind where to stay. I checked the various accommodation facilities in the city until I got tired and went to Mercedes Country Lodge. I was tempted to stay at Novotel Asia but it looked like a motel to me because they offer 3 hours short time. I had my lunch at Jane’s Restaurant. In the afternoon, I had my city walk. Well, just walking around the small city.

It was a spur of the moment decision to spend the night here so I wasn’t able to research ahead. Longing for some decent sleep, at least in bed this time, I trudged with my heavy pack – now filled with wet clothes – to the nearest computer shop to search for a place to crash for the night. I narrowed my choices down to Villa Isabel, which was recommended by the computer shop owner and Mercedes Country Lodge, which offered the cheapest rate I had found so far. In the end, I found myself in one of the non air-conditioned rooms with common bath and toilet at Mercedes Country lodge. It’s cheap, conveniently located near the main thoroughfare and good enough to while away the night and recharge for the next day’s adventure.

That's very deja vu Asean as we stay at the Mercedes now, great little hotel, went to amazing little resto bar nearby tonight and hopefully have motorbike tomorrow, so far Sorsogon is turning out to be one of the best towns we have been to.
In Sorsogon the best value place to stay is the Mercedes Country Lodge VL Peralta street from php300 a night. -Asean 2011

Excerpt from KITEBOARDING PHILIPPINES
In the south of the same island, you can find one of the best kept secret in Sorsogon - the Rizal Beach. It is still under the radar that there are no schools and equipment rentals yet for kiteboarding. The best and cheapest place to stay is at the Mercedes Country Lodge; just 10 minutes away. You can reach the place either by a 9-hour ride from Manila or by 1-hour plane ride to Legazpi City and a short bus ride. Flights cost around 100 - 150 $ and accommodations run from 15 - 20 $ a night.

Reviewed 28 June 2013 This is a nice little hotel clean and friendly staff even a small garden at the back. Wifi is free. Rooms are big and clean. Even a small room with a TV set and chairs to meet up. Hot water is free if you bring your own coffee. Located just out of the city center in a small off street...
