“Good location, affordable price and clean comfort room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Worth stay in this hotel as we find it cheap with very spacious room. Perhaps we stayed in the VIP room yet we were satisfied with the rate offered. The receptionist are very friendly and helpful. A male staff with glasses on, i am sorry that i coudn't remember his name. Very nice and polite hotel staff, always offers assistance. Location wise is good as at the back is already the pier where transfer you to other island. (about 3 minutes walk) Restaurants / supermarket and convenience store is just very close to the hotel. Will be back to stay in this hotel again.

Room Tip: VIP room is just slightly higher than the standard room yet it offer double the size from the standa...

We stayed in two hotels in Semporna and this was definitely the better of the two.

Clean and tidy, new comfy bed and fresh smelling sheets. Good hot and cold power shower.

We stayed here two nights and were not disappointed.

Good enough for travellers that need a nap or maybe few night rest at the heart of Semporna. I've stayed in Premium Deluxe room with my other 6 member. We top-up a bad for that numbers. Interior is quite nice with warm feel. At reception you can get souvenir to bring back home. Best part the premium room got a safe box deposit, so if you bring an expensive equipment can store in it while you search for food at night.

Room Tip: Don't know for other room but we stayed at room number 4 upstairs and it facing a restaurant bel...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2015

We stayed here for one night after we left Mabul and before returning to Tawau.
We walked in without a booking, cant remember the price but remember being fairly happy with it.
The double room was tiny and seeing as we had two full sets of dive kit with us it was a bit of a squeeze but perfectly adequate for one night.
The hot shower was good with basic toiletries provied so we didnt have to unpack. There was a tv and surprisingly fast wifi too along witg very cold air con.
The bedding was a little stained and the duvet cover especially had some 'odd' marks on it but nothing to get upset about.
The location was very good.
We ate twice in the Scuba Junkie bar which has one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. The owner is from New Zealand and imports the steak. Other food we had there was also good.
There is a massive supermarket and some great shops for t shirts etc. The market is also worth a look.

We have lived in the Philippines and so are used to small Asian fishing ports but if you are not then it might be a bit of a shock.
Semporna is a bit of a grotty place but the gateway for some of the most amazing diving. This hotel is pretty good while on the way there or back...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel.

The rooms are clean, with air conditioning, hot water and HBO channels for watching movies. The wifi is slow but it works.

Perfect location before heading out to sipadan and Mabul islands!

Room Tip: The queen size rooms on the front of the building are nice and quiet.

Friendly staff that went out of their way to be helpful. Found me a taxi when I needed it, allowed a late checkout upon request.
First room I was given smelt of cigarettes but was immediately changed to a different one when I told them this. Clean rooms with hot showers, good air con, working wifi in the room. Rooms a little small and dark but probably the best in Semporna. Good location with food, supermarket and waterfront (for what it's worth) nearby.
