Pricier than the usual motel, Victoria Court is a go-between among the cheap motels and the really luxurious hotels. The recent addition of theme-based suites, some of which are even designed by famous celebrities, makes for an interesting night trip. Victoria Court also has a very spacious parking lot that helps maintain the air of privacy that many night adventurers love.
They may not be among the more discreet because of its superior branding scheme, but they are clearly more within budget. Clean, well-maintained and with official colors that resemble the fast food chains, Sogo is unarguably one of the household names when it comes to the motel industry. They have a lot of branches in Mega Manila. They provide affordable pricing and even have discount cards for their loyal patrons.
Microtel Inns are much better known in the farther regions of the Philippines such as Baguio and Tarlac and may not be visible in the capital city of Manila, but that does not make them any less of a contender for the top 10 motels in the Philippines.
