“Well ... it was cheap ... you get what you pay for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Frankly, my friends and I barely stayed at the hotel given our schedule. Our plane arrived at 7PM, our tour itinerary starts at 7:30 AM the next day with overnight at Kinabalu Park, so really we just needed a pitstop for that night. Since we needed only a pitstop, we opted to find a place that was cheap. And Sri Iskandar is certainly that ... very cheap. And like my title says, you get what you pay for. The beds were spacious enough; we were not cramped at all. But the room itself was a bit timeworn, and so was the bathroom, and so was the hallway, and so was the lobby. You get the idea. On the plus side, the staff was very accommodating, both while we were booking online (they allowed changes we made at the last minute at no extra cost) and when we got there. Location-wise, all I can really say is that there was a night market in the area fronting the hotel, a 711 store next door, a KFC nearby and a seafood restaurant/market. Since we didn't stay there long, we weren't really able to explore.
