Didn't book, just walked in for an overnight accommodation before the diving package. A basic hotel surrounded with restaurants and diving centers. Staff are very friendly and offered to store my luggage while I went out for a boat dive. But for the price I paid for could get a room at seafest, which is much better condition though further...

Basic accommodation, suitable for those who's low in budget. Rooms are good and clean with aircon. Service was not very nice. Souvenir's shop lady is rude, sticking with her hand phone, not entertaining potential customers. Would come again if service is improved.

Many stay in this town as a layover in order to get to Mabul or Sipadan for diving. It's about 1-1.5 hr drive by taxi from airport. We were here for 2 nights (not consecutively because we were in Mabul for 2 days & 1 night for diving/snorkelling). We booked a standard room, which had a double bed & private... More

We just spent one night as we were passing through. Fabulous Service as they were very attentive to us. We were put in a downstairs room near the office with no window which was very quiet. Room is about 10’ x 10’ absolutely the smallest room we had ever stayed in before. The twin beds were on the short side... More

The hotel is basic but good. Clean rooms, aircon. The slamming of the doors in the hallaway will wake you up though in early morning. Perfect for day trips to the islands if you do not want to spend a fortune to stay on Mabul

Sipadan Inn was good. Paid 110 MYR for 2 pax / 1 night It was located near the main part of Semporna. There was Guardian and Watson nearby. In addition, there was a hypermarket Giant just a 3 minutes walk away. The place was well furnished. Room looked neat, aircon working good. The bathroom especially was huge. Wifi was working... More

The Sipadan Inn is a mid level hotel in the ugly town of Semporna. If you don't dive with Scuba Junkie, like us, this hotel is a fair deal. Clean rooms and the staff is friendly. It's a 10 min walk from the bus station and about 3 min to the dive places. Make sure you book your Sipadan permit... More

It was very clean. It was one of the nicer looking hotels in Semporna. The aicon worked perfect the water heater worked (yet the water pressure sucked at night). Great place to stay. You get complementary tea, coffee, bottled water, and toiletries.

I stayed here one night as a transit hotel between my diving on Pom Pom Island and Sipadan and getting back and forth to the airport in Tawau. The hotel was fine and met my needs, clean with a nice shower. The bed was a bit stiff...but hey..I wasn't picky at that point. Just staying the night. The staff were... More
