Nice onsite amenities for when you're staying in
Whether taking a break from exploring, or spending the day in, it's easy to unwind with fresh cookies and lemonade, and hang at the pool. The pool and spa amenities are well maintained and comfortable, and the ambience is as welcoming and pleasant as expected.
Ample and tasty breakfast
The Glorietta Bay Inn provides a nice breakfast for you to start the day with. There are ample provisions so everyone can get something, and the quality and taste are satisfying. It's decent enough that you don't have to go out to fill up or find a selection that meets your preferences.
You'll hear everything between the walls
Keep in mind that if you can hear fellow guests, then they can hear you. The walls and floors are thin, and at times it may seem like there's no barrier between the rooms.
Some balcony views face alleys and dumpsters
Balcony and patio views are greatly disappointing for some, because they face alleys, dumpsters, and other less than ideal scenery. You're advised to check out the view before officially checking in, to make sure that you're ok with what it is.
Parking is expensive and cramped
Not everyone is happy about the parking. The fees are considered insulting and pricey, and finding a decent spot can be difficult. If you're lucky enough to get a good spot, you may have to plan your travels around the ease of returning to such convenience.
