No Casino at Monte Carlo Hotel, Santiago, Isabela
On seeing Monte Carlo Hotel sign, he instructed his driver to park in front to inquire for prices and inspect the room. He was offered a standard room at P800/night but opted for the deluxe one priced at P950. He could have stayed at a suite room since his budget allows it but did not since all he wanted was a nice place to sleep a few hours and again hit the road.

On seeing the room, he immediately booked one where the lady at the frontdesk gave him a key to room # 7 to which he inquired if he needed to pay a deposit. The lady just replied "Di naman siguro kayo tatakbo, sir (you probably won't run away)," to which he replied at the back of his mind "I won't run but will drive away."
They trust their customers or maybe Tutubi really is afflicted with agerasia making him look trustworthy :P

Monte Carlo Hotel Review:
The hotel seems fairly new including the rooms were nice. The only difference between the standard and deluxe rooms is that the latter's floor is carpeted. Breakfast, inclusive in the price, can be taken near the front desk or delivered to your room; in this case, Tutubi had his daing na bangus delivered at 6am and it arrived on time with sun side up fried egg, fried rice and coffee. The only minor thing he noticed was the absence of a chain lock on the door or a peep hole to see first who's on your door before totally opening the door (for security reasons). Lots of parking in the hotel for they seem to cater to drive-in customers.
No Casinos in Monte Carlo though so better go to Las Vegas or Monaco, both gambling capitals; only karaoke/videoke there.

If you are planning a trip in Isabela, Villa Diana Hotel is probably the best place to stay in Isabela. That's just my personal opinion since i travel a lot to the north.

Thanks for the comments on the Monte Carlo Hotel. As of this date , the hotel is just the same but was face-lifted in the second floor . It opened its new and bigger function /seminar/reception hall that can accomodate more than 100 persons. COME AND SEE for yourself something different in its interiors! SEE YOU THERE!fROM A REGULAR GUEST
