For a fraction of the price of a pseudo-full service hotel nearby, Marton Suites is an excellent choice. New, clean, friendly staff, and under 2 minutes' walk to a big mall. Room is spacious enough, bed is soft, airconditiong working great (though a but noisy), huge closet, and bedroom slippers provided. Dining table, kitchenette, big fridge, cooking and dining utensils available for those who want to make their own meals. TV working ok. Bathroom spacious with a hanging shelf for extra storage, water pressure ok, heater working, basic amenities present. Maybe could add bidet or dipper. Wifi working. Hairdryer available upon request. Wasn't able to inquire about iron though. No breakfast but just bought pastries from mall thr night before. Stay here. Don't waste your money on "hotel" around the corner with poor breakfast "included" in the pricey rates and tiny room.

Stayed for 2 nights at Marton suites and was reasonably satisfied. Room was clean and comfortable with cooking facilities, utensils and crockery. Bathroom was clean and had good hot water. Limited tv stations on the cable, no backup generator, arrived to a brown out. The address is listed incorrectly as Tulip Drive when it is Almond Street. Location is only a short walk to SM Ecoland. Lots of restaurants and local food outlets close by and quite safe to walk around the area. Staff at reception were loud late at night and early morning making it difficult to sleep.
Perfect for quick trips to Davao

Marton Suites offers compact yet completely furnished suites located in Ecoland, one of the quieter districts in Davao City. It's a couple of blocks from an SM mall (in case you need a quick grocery run) and from the highway, making it easier to hail a cab or a jeep and explore the city on your own.
8 Days - Great Service, Well-Equipped Room, No Complaints

This is hotel operation simplified and it works. There is no pool, no restaurant (more on that in a moment), no room service. Just a lovely, small hotel located in an upscale, gated subdivision for all intents and purposes within sight of one of Davao City's major malls.
Marton Suites is quiet at all times, most importantly at night. The rooms are a very good size and fully equipped with fridge, propane stove, pots, pans, rice cooker, kettle, plates, cups, and cutlery. Fantastic shower, comfortable bed, and excellent pillows. The room decor is modern and appealing to the eye. Common areas are breezy and pleasant to walk through.
Cable TV and super-fast wi-fi. My wife and I were particularly impressed with the wi-fi. We were able to watch Netflix whenever we wanted without buffering.
Now for the service. When we arrived, we had been assigned a room on the second floor. However, having recently gone too hard while running, I was wearing a knee brace. As soon as the person on the desk noticed the brace (as I was starting up the stairs), she asked if I'd prefer a room on the first floor. I did and the change was made. Very proactive.
My wife's neck is forever giving her grief and she's never been able to find a pillow that doesn't give her grief one way or another. Until she slept a couple of nights on Marton Suites' pillow, that is. It was perfect so she asked where the hotel gets it's pillows. Problem was they are purchased from a commercial hotel supply company. Problem solved - Marton Suites sold us a pillow - for half the price of the last one we bought retail.
There is no need for Marton Suites to have a restaurant because SM City Mall is a 2 minute walk away and it has all kinds of restaurants. And Starbucks (and other options) for breakfast.
One quick note - room is cleaned when you ask for it to be cleaned, not automatically every day.
Marton Suites is not located in the center of Davao City, so if that's where you need to be, it's not the place for you. But for everyone else, it's perfect.
