Arrived late at night. Cockroaches in lobby. Rats seen outside. No restaurant. Refused to check in. Deep step difficult for disabled traveller. Give it a miss. Way ouside town.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.this is awful.

The place is pretty cheap and the rooms are huge and clean. Its not luxurious (who would expect luxury when coming to Sandakan anyway?). LOcation is decent, but I am not looking for much when staying here.

This is my second time at this hotel and i would come back again as it is value for money.

I really like this small town, filled with friendly people.. Visit the Probocis Monkeys and Orang Utan sanctuaries.

The only good thing is I got a king size bed. The toilet is terrible! Water leaking, shower under pressure, shower no hot water, towels are very not clean and with stain. House keeping not hardworking, didn't mop the toilet everyday.

I was told by my friend that this hotel was recently renovated and the top floor was still under renovation when I stayed there. But I could not see anything new in this hotel except the dirty stain left on the toilet after the renovation.

The sewage system desperately needs improvement as both the sink and toilet in my rooms got problem with the drainage. And the service was terrible too!!! I called the operator thrice for the toilet problem and no one showed up to my room to fix it till 45 minutes later.

If not of the location as it near to airport and commercial area of mile 4 and 6 (which happen to be more 'alive' than Sandakan town itself), we won't check in to this hotel.

We arrived late in Sandakan and prefer a comfort place to stay rather just a b&b even we'll check out early morning. Look from outside the structure of this hotel like 4-5 stars. The standard n deluxe room already full so we have to get room with 3 single beds (I don't know name of this room type).

The lift was smelly. Carpet in the alley almost colourless and have lots dirty spot. The walls and door have lots of crack and feel like we was in a haunted place while walking to our room.The room quite OK but the internet was wire type and have to paid by hourly usage. The tv didn't have remote and its an old one where some of its buttons was missing.
