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

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
