we needed one night between leaving Mabul and heading out to the airport ... the Scuba Junkie Hostel was full up for air-con ensuite rooms, so we headed down to the Sipadan Inn ..... Clean, tidy rooms ...but they are very small - we barely maneuvered around our luggage and each other .... the bathroom was also small and the...

My friend and I were registered by SDC to this hotel for a day before transfered to Seafest Hotel. The room is small and not enough space to move around. However, it was neat abd clean. Air conditioner and hot shower worked very well. No breakfast served.

Room: very small and worn down. Cleanliness: decent. Location: center of Semporna so ezpect a lot of noise, in my case a air compressor from a dive center in frint of my window. Price: overpriced comparing what you get in other hotels for similar prices.

Some rooms have no windows, and the aircon was very average. This makes for a claustrophobic stay. The staff is friendly, but insisted on a 50MYR security deposit! Its located well within the market dive shop area. The rooms are clean and the bed comfortable. OK for an overnight halt, but probably can do better elsewhere.

Clean room and nice service. Market and marina are very close. Air conditioning works fine. You can cool your beers in fridge by reception desk. Ignore kids asking for money, bec. they will make the worst use of it. Be aware of tricksters offering services like baggage transportation! You don't want to get in conversation with them when paying.

We were booked to stay here and looked at 3 rooms before cancelling and going elsewhere. The staff seemed friendly enough and we were only staying for one night, we were just going to plonk ourselves in. But, a group of tourists in front of us asked if they could smoke in the rooms, which the staff agreed to. We...

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for a couple of days in Mars 2016 pwhen we were diving in Semporna. Great, clean hotel with good service. Can be a little bit noicy from the street sometimes, but it didn't bother that much. I can really recommend it!

Booked a dive trip with Sipadan Scuba and Sipadan Inn was part of the package. It is located just opposite the Sipadan Scuba's shop which is on the same stretch as all the seafood restaurants. There is a supermarket and pharmacies nearby. There is nothing much around the area to explore as the main attraction for the area is a...

We booked one family room with extra beds for the children. When we arrived we were told that they needed to move us to Sipidan Inn 2. Once we arrived there they charged us double since the rooms were smaller and had no space for extra beds and hence we needed two :-(
