The structure looks as if it came from the 70s and the lobby and the main function room which also functions as the restaurant are from the same mold. Rooms are decent sized, mattresses could use an upgrade and the TV channels suck with only Aljazeera to keep you updated on the news. No in-room safe but there is a safe deposit box in the lobby.
Breakfast is purely for caloric consumption. Nothing to titillate the palate but nothing horribly wrong either. Protein comes from tofu or apathetic slices of chicken ham.
Demolition of a huge building across the road commenced at 8 am but this should be over within a week of writing.
The good: Within 5 minute walk from Welcome Seafood Restaurant which is a huge restaurant occupying the ground level of a shopping block. Order - mantis shrimp, geoduck and live fish. Forget about the house special noodle. I've had better from instant mojo.
Airport is ten minutes away and shopping centers are a ten minute walk away (but who goes to Kota Kinabalu to shop?).
