“Budget Stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

The hotel is located at Damai Point. It is quite far from the city center. It takes 5-10 minutes drives to downtown depends on the traffic. The room is small but cozy. The bathroom is nice provide with a hairdryer. There's a Coffee maker, 2 coffees and 2 bottles of water is complimentary. The LCD TV have a few selection of channel. The bed sheet is clean and comfortable. During our stay there was a heavy rain and the water actually leak into our room despite the window closed tight. The WiFi speed is fast. Overall I still enjoy my stay in this hotel. I definitely will come back again.

I'm now still staying here. And gonna stay till Wednesday. My main concern is the cleanliness of the room. The pillow covers and bedsheets for me are look dirty!
And this morning while I was using the hair dryer, it was suddenly off. And the air conditional as well.
But luckily after I called to the reception, immediately they came up and settled for me. The fius was jumped off.

We stayed at DM hotel for 4 nights about 2 weeks ago.

The hotel is quite basic but still offers a good, comfortable stay. Rooms have flat screen TV and high speed internet, which is good for a lazy night in!

Yes, the hotel is a little bit far from KK city centre, but then the budget cost will make you afford the 15 ringgit taxi fare to the city centre!!

It'a also close to a couple of very good bakeries, a small supermarket and quite a few budget kedai kopi (budget restaurant/café).

If I was to go back to KK maybe I would choose somewhere a bit closer to the city centre, but then we were convinced by the good value for money, as the hotels lives up to the rating given by booking websites!

Decided to return to DM hotel as my previous stay in this hotel was a good one. Chose the same room category and to my surprise, the bathroom was bigger than the previous one I stayed. Anyways, not much complaint as I only demanded a good night stay as the room rate was reasonable and hotel room was comfortable!

slow room service, me n my hubby hv 2 wait for almost 2 hours for the room service(5.30pm-8.00pm); getting new clean towels, soaps, syampoo and changing the bed sheet on the 2nd night. The receptionist was also unfriendly(no smile). hopefully ur staf will serve better in future time. fortunately, the staff in-charged that night (8.00pm) changing the bed sheet was a good boy, credit to him. tq..

DM Hotel is a budget hotel located in Damai, Kota Kinabalu. Have decided to stay in this hotel due to the room rate is very affordable!

Overall, the room was clean but take note that the entire floor in the room, even bathroom is extremely slippery although the floor is not wet at all!

Room is equipped with flat screen TV, and basic amenities are provided ie toothbrush, bath gel, shampoo, coffee packs, mineral water etc. The only disadvantage is the bathroom - it is very small and very hard to move around - not sure about other room type as the one I stayed was the cheapest standard room with no window.

Hotel is recommendable if only you rent a car to drive around as the hotel is not located in city centre. Anyways, there is a supermarket nearby, as well as many F&B outlets even Pizza Hut, Coffee Bean etc.

DM Hotel is located in Damai, Kota Kinabalu. This Budget Hotel is clean, tidy, fully carpeted and well managed. For Tourists who are travelling to Kota Kinabalu can give a try for the double-bedded room rate is only RM88 per night. It is indeed cheap and money-worth to stay for the night. But remember, you need to book before hand as most of the time, it is fully booked. The Hotel provides good facilities such as Modern TV and free Wi-fi for the convenience of Tourists.

Room Tip: Depending on the availability of Room, try to request for higher floor.
