Your chances of getting a room in Bacolod during the MassKara Festival week is slim (especially now with a month to go before the MassKara Festival). The most expensive hotel to budget pension houses to the cheapest accommodation in town have been booked since early this year I heard! Don't fret. Neighboring cities Silay (14 km.) and Talisay (7.3 km.) or some retreat houses in the fringes of the city could probably make room for one more traveler like you.
Arguably the grandest festival in Western Visayas, MassKara Festival in Bacolod has always outdone itself year after year. I couldn't wait for October to arrive and party like a rock star!
