How much money does it cost to stay overnight? Would my wife be welcome to stay? When staying, can I park a car there overnight?

you are welcome to stay there overnight, rent a room at Malaybalay City, I'm not sure with the price but if you will check in at any resort there, maybe it will cost around P2-4k and they have their parking lot too
How long are guests allowed to stay? And is there any charge?

it is available until 5pm it's free as long as you wear proper clothing and respect it's nature and be quiet during the mass when visiting
