room below average. service is good & location is great”

Booked at last minute and most hotels in Semporna are fully booked. Stayed 2 nights on 10 & 11 May 2017 Deluxe King room. U cant expect much on hotels in Semporna. We arrived late at about 8pm and when we stepped in the whole lobby smells like fish market. Terrible. We got room 130 and smell as such too, smells better on 2nd day though. Room size is acceptable. Towel to be collected at the reception. Bed are nicely made with 2 thin pillows and i requested for 2 more pillows. Toilet is below average. No bidet spray but there is a pail & bailer. Instant heater is working well but the holder of the shower loosen & spoilt and was hang below my height. So i need to hold the shower head to wash my hair. We noticed the door soft-closing hinges was broken when we stepped in and requested for room change, unfortunately there's no other room available and also no one came to rectify until we checked out. Aircon was working well but makes too much noise that caused me unable to sleep. No hairdyer. I requested for it and was told it is borrowed by other guests by the reception and i didnt got the chance to use it. No coffee maker. No hanger. No fridge. No telephone. Wifi was VERY weak - connect & disconnected every few mins. On my 2nd day, we realized that our room door was unable to auto lock when we leave the room. It was the keycard problem and we were given a physical key to lock & unlock our room. Also, our room window was faulty too, unable to lock. Location is quite a distance from the central jetty and would require abt 15-20mins walk. Nonetheless, this hotel is surrounded by many shops. There is a 24hrs minimart nearby opposite the KFC. There are few 24hrs coffeshops below & behind the hotel. There is 24hrs self laundry behind the hotel. Few banks & ATM machines nearby. On weekends, there will be bazaar market just infront of the hotel. Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and another 2 nights at their central jetty area. Personally, i prefer to stay at this area f

Value for the money”

Budget hotel with the great value for money, clean and comfortable

It was the first time I stayed at this hotel in Semporna. Normally I stay at the Seafest Hotel which is almost twice the rate. The room is not so large but it was expected with the price and hotel status as a budget hotel. The room is clean and there are two restaurants at the same block with the hotel. Easy access to restaurants, bank and 24 hour convinience store.

Quite distance to dive centre”

clean, quite at night and wifi internet is available

Overall, it was good hotel. I was here for scuba diving activity at the islands nearby Semporna. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The only hiccup i encountered was the distance from this hotel to the dive centre operator in Semporna is far. I have to take taxi everyday to the dive centre as the dive centre that i chossed were not providing the transport.

Cheap and convenient choice for travelers”

Locates near the KFC Semporna, the center of downtown area. Quite cheap and convenient for those travelers who do not plan to go to the sea everyday. Staff there were very kind to provide help, however WiFi is only available at the lobby :(

overall value for money”

a bit far from Watsons and the Pier (apprx 15-20 min walk), but considering the price there's nothing to complain about. rooms are airy, AC and hot water working. Wifi sometimes down, hotel owner and reception are very nice and responsive. Also many restaurants nearby(2 min walk to KFC) and a lovely Cafe behind (Sea Breeze).
