The room was clean enough although we didn't get towels and when. We collected them they definitely did not smell washed. Staff very friendly. In the centre of the 'town'. Our advise would be only come to Semporna is you REALLY have to.

Reasonable and comfortable room with coffee/tea set in your own room. Some rooms facing the seafront. Though the hotel does not have its own bar and restaurant, it offers free breakfast at the adjacent restaurant by the seafront. Free wifi, best at lobby.

It's a new hotel situated very close to the dock, where you can catch a shuttle boat to the islands. The room was quiet and clean with a comfortable bed but extremely small. We had difficulty trying to store all our luggage in it. Maybe their other rooms are bigger but since we took the last double room available, we...

we needed one night between leaving Mabul and heading out to the airport ... the Scuba Junkie Hostel was full up for air-con ensuite rooms, so we headed down to the Sipadan Inn ..... Clean, tidy rooms ...but they are very small - we barely maneuvered around our luggage and each other .... the bathroom was also small and the...

My friend and I were registered by SDC to this hotel for a day before transfered to Seafest Hotel. The room is small and not enough space to move around. However, it was neat abd clean. Air conditioner and hot shower worked very well. No breakfast served.

Room: very small and worn down. Cleanliness: decent. Location: center of Semporna so ezpect a lot of noise, in my case a air compressor from a dive center in frint of my window. Price: overpriced comparing what you get in other hotels for similar prices.

Some rooms have no windows, and the aircon was very average. This makes for a claustrophobic stay. The staff is friendly, but insisted on a 50MYR security deposit! Its located well within the market dive shop area. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. OK for an overnight halt, but probably can do better elsewhere.

Clean room and nice service. Market and marina are very close. Air conditioning works fine. You can cool your beers in fridge by reception desk. Ignore kids asking for money, bec. they will make the worst use of it. Be aware of tricksters offering services like baggage transportation! You don't want to get in conversation with them when paying.

We were booked to stay here and looked at 3 rooms before cancelling and going elsewhere. The staff seemed friendly enough and we were only staying for one night, we were just going to plonk ourselves in. But, a group of tourists in front of us asked if they could smoke in the rooms, which the staff agreed to. We...
