The ensuite twin room with AC was decent, wifi worked, hot water and close to the bus we were taking at 7.30am to Tawau airport. Nothing special, but a decent place and out of the three options around the bus stop (Mabul Inn, City Inn and a third) this seemed best and cheapest

This hotel is right beside the bus station, so if you’re coming from Sandakan you will only have to walk a couple of steps to find it. The room was very spacious; I couldn’t believe the size of it comparing it to what we paid (around 55 MYR). It also has air conditioning, two free bottles of water, a TV,... More

The good point is the secured parking area. That is important if you bring your car to Semporna. As for the room experience, I have stayed in quite a many budget hotels in several places and I would say there are others that are far better than this one. There's TV but the quality is bad. The room is quite... More

(And I think there is still place to put another 2 single beds!) The facilities is OK like toilet/shower ensuit, dressing table, cupboard, towels, soaps, fan and air-cond.... More

We stayed here for one night after staying in Mabul diving. The room had a comfortable bed; but the bathroom however was one toilet where the flusher did not work. There were no sink; the wall had a shower. I guess the fun bit would be standing on the toilet showering (if you like such).

Regret to stay in City Inn, Semporna. Astro is controlled by the hotel (change to AEC Channel while we're enjoying HBO - don't understand Chinese ma...), air-conditioner is off from 1.00 a.m - 5.00 a.m for no reason (maybe to save cost but we pay for it, isn't it? RM90 ma...) Whoever want to stay in Semporna, my advice is... More

Lucky for us we found this place before getting to semporna. Backpacker or luxury looking tourist this is your safe option or Sipadan Inn thats it. Otherwise dont come to semporna look for a place on mabul or go for the exspensive massive seafest hotel we spotted while leaveing the jetty for diving. 300 Rm for a week is a... More
