This study aimed to the explore quality of service and customer satisfaction of DOT accredited hotels in Baguio City during the COVID-19 pandemic on the basis of Service Quality Model.

The study adopted a descriptive-survey research design to determine the level of satisfaction of the hotel guests during the pandemic along tangibility, reliability, responsiveness, confidence and communication. From the 10 hotels in the city, a total of 387 respondents answered the questionnaire floated between the peak months of September and October.
