It's been a couple of years since I stayed here (March 2011), but I doubt much has changed in that time. Apologies for the late review. The hotel is well located, and less than 10 minutes walk to the promenade, Jessleton Jetty, main shopping malls and high streets. There are lots of good cafes and bars along the road the... More

We stayed in July before climbing Mount Kinabalu. The rooms were basic but very clean. The location is great. I would recommend getting a room with a window. There wasn't one available for us on the first night but we move the next day and it was much better.

Arrived in KK after mid night and leaving to north early morning the next day so we decided to go cheap. Location was great. Very basic. The A/C control was not working. Very small room. Has running hot water. Quite clean. Staffs are helpful and smiley.

Friendly staff, good location, quiet at night, clean room with hot water shower--If 84RM/night is in your price range for a double room (no breakfast), then I would definitely recommend booking this place. Laundry is 8RM per kilo and can be done the same day. If you're interested in visiting an island in the national marine park while you're staying... More

Hotel is very basic. Clean room and with hot shower. It is in the middle of the city and Gaya street is just a few steps at the back where you can buy stuff of all kinds on Sunday mornings. Staff is friendly and can help you with bookings for local tours. The hotel has no restaurant but eateries are... More

Good location, nice frienly staff, many restaurants close by, walking distance to most places and very reasonable price. That is why this hotel is not bad at all. In fact, it is quite good.

Stayed in Pantai Inn, KK Jan 27-30, 2012 and was booked by a friend( they do not have a website). Their location is central with restos around, a nearby supermarket, walking distance to Atkinsons Clock, Segawa walkway, Jesselton Ferry terminal and malls. Great hotel and very accommodating staff.

Can't beat the central location. Stayed here for a couple nights and the hotel staff were more than friendly. The hotel is starting to fade, and could use a face lift but it was fairly clean, hot water showers, and not musty. No food, but plenty to choose from by way of a short stroll.
