I typically stay at City Park Lodge on my trips to Kota Kinabalu, usually because I am on a budget. The owner and staff are always friendly and can arrange for airport transfer at a nominal fee if you request it. The most important thing here is however the location. You are minutes away (walking distance) from everything, whether it is to the Jesselton Jetty for the islands, or great seafood, the supermarket etc. The weekend market is just downstairs at the back. The rooms are however pretty small, if you've been to Japan business hotels, yups, that's about the size. The place is great for singles or couples on a budget backpacking trip. The lounge area has a PC, there is cable and of course Internet.
I don't recommend this place for families with babies as there is no place for a crib, with just enough space for small pieces of luggage. However, yes, there is no lift. So if you have the pleasure (or not) of staying at the top floor, well, I practically climbed up on my hands and knees after a day at the beach. I can imagine after a climb up and down Kinabalu, this is probably not exactly the most enjoyable way to get back to your bed. No tubs, just shower, but great with hot water.
