Residence Inn Mountain Resort and Zoo is small and more of a petting zoo. At the entrance, they sell fresh fruits and other food that the animals eat … the animals that could be fed that is.
This zoo actually surrounds Residence Inn. Personally, I wouldn’t choose staying at an inn which is in the middle of a zoo. How much sleep can one get if you could hear the growling of the big cats, chirping of the noisy cockatoos/parrots, and the noise the hyperactive monkeys make? Maybe the air conditioned rooms filter out the sound… maybe.
The last time I visited a zoo was when I was doing a paper for Ecology during my college freshman year and had to go to the Manila zoo. I found the place depressing because I think the big animals do not have enough space to stretch out/roam in their cages.
