Nothing amazing, quiet room, AC works, clean, WiFi fast. The price is OK but we later moved to Holiday Inn down the road for diving days, and the rate there was a lot cheaper (at least with scuba), and room wasn't much worse. The location of Sipadan Inn is good, only stroll from harbour, restaurants, laundry and Giant super market.... More

Worth stay in this hotel as we find it cheap with very spacious room. Perhaps we stayed in the VIP room yet we were satisfied with the rate offered. The receptionist are very friendly and helpful. A male staff with glasses on, i am sorry that i coudn't remember his name. Very nice and polite hotel staff, always offers assistance.... More

We stayed in two hotels in Semporna and this was definitely the better of the two. Clean and tidy, new comfy bed and fresh smelling sheets. Good hot and cold power shower. We stayed here two nights and were not disappointed.

We stayed here for one night after we left Mabul and before returning to Tawau. We walked in without a booking, cant remember the price but remember being fairly happy with it. The double room was tiny and seeing as we had two full sets of dive kit with us it was a bit of a squeeze but perfectly adequate... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The rooms are clean, with air conditioning, hot water and HBO channels for watching movies. The wifi is slow but it works. Perfect location before heading out to sipadan and Mabul islands!

Friendly staff that went out of their way to be helpful. Found me a taxi when I needed it, allowed a late checkout upon request. First room I was given smelt of cigarettes but was immediately changed to a different one when I told them this. Clean rooms with hot showers, good air con, working wifi in the room. Rooms... More

Staff speaks English, rooms are small and quite expensive to me. They charge 110 rm for a double room, but we managed to haggle and get the room for 70rm since it's low season. Staff is friendly. Air con rooms, but in ours there was no remote for it. The room was extremely hot when we entered and smelled a... More

Sipadan Inn was a good option for us in Semporna while waiting to have a slot to dive in Sipadan. The room was on the second floor, with a comfortable bed and nice bathroom. Internet worked fine. Lots of noises around, so at 6h00, you could not sleep anymore. Moreover, our room faced the stairs, so we could hear everybody... More
