Willy's Beach Club Hotel is also quite an affordable hotel. It's not listed in my affordable beach front hotels in station 1 as this post was more of affordable hotels below Php 3,000 per night price. Depending on the season, you can book Willy's Beach Club Hotel for a little over Php 3,000 per night. During my first visit in this hotel last 2013 (see my blog post about it here), the accommodation rates then was below Php 3,000 for a deluxe room on an off peak season. Since our trip was July 2016, considered as an off peak season, we were able to still get an affordable room rate. We booked the Super Deluxe Room that has a bath tub and location is nearer to the beach. For 3 nights stay, the price we got was Php 9,531 through My Boracay Guide website. I also used My Boracay Guide when we booked our first stay at Willy's Beach Club Hotel last 2013. Our booking comes with free airport pick up for 2, which saves us about Php 800. You can read my review on their free transport service here.
The Super Deluxe Room is quite smaller than the Deluxe Room we booked before. The room we had is still located at the 2nd floor. View from the veranda is facing the restaurant but view of the beach is nearer (right side view) than our previous room. Other differences are super deluxe room have bath tub, mini ref, facial tissue, and own veranda. Having our own veranda is perfect since my husband smokes. Our previous room also has veranda but it seemed shared to the other room perpendicular from us.

Again welcome drinks were provided upon arrival in the hotel. There's no more seashell necklaces given to us upon arrival unlike before.
The room is quite old but does not smell one. I say old as we had a little difficulty in opening and closing/locking our door. Linens and pillows are clean and smells nice. Bathroom is clean with ample water supply, hot and cold shower, towels and toiletries.

Our stay still comes with free buffet breakfast. Again, they served combination of Filipino and American dishes. The choices were sufficient with breads, drinks and dessert. They are also offering grilled buffet dinner. I can't recall how much it cost but I think its not that expensive. We tried it one time since it was rainy the whole day on our 1st day. The choices were mostly meat and a few cuts of fish, shrimp and squid with pasta, rice and soup. For us, its quite enough already but for some, it may not be as inviting since the cut or the portions of the food were quite small. But anyway, it's buffet, you can get another one without a limit. What's also good about this buffet dinner is that you can have a freshly grilled meat as there is a standby griller who can grill for you at the corner of the buffet. Their food still tastes good. Some servings of their ala carte foods were quite a lot.

Similar to our last stay at Willy's Beach Club last 2012, we did not experience any problems during our stay. Willy's Beach Club Hotel may not be a fancy and luxurious hotel but it is one of the affordable hotels in station 1 worth staying as it can be relaxing and enjoyable since it is beach front and away from the crowd. If I'll be visiting Boracay again next time, I wouldn't have second thoughts of staying in here.
