I've had great stay in Ria hotel, a lovely hotel in a small and quiet town. The hotel services are good with comfortable beds and large room with nice view. The hotel staff was really friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!

basically kudat is a very small town and very limited choice of hotels in twon. they have Marina resort, upperdeck and some other backpacker hotels. I stayed all 3 type of hotels in kudat, for comfy and cleanness strongly suggest go with Ria Hotel. unless you want to swim. Ria offer Jacuzzi inside their family suite also.

Expect: Clean, spacious rooms, friendly service, reasonable prices for the quality you get, and decent comfort all around. I stay in Ria every time I go to Kudat. It's central, walking distance to both the market, the waterfront and the jetty; and the minivans from KK will drop you off right in front of it. There's free wifi but the... More

Coffee making facilities are available (no tea bags though!). There are two rooms (twin beds and a king sized bed) which are very comfortable. There is a TV... More
