      Good option”
      Good points: 1.super quiet , good for rest 2. Spacious room 3. Toilet super clea 4. Friendly staffs 5. Free car park To be improve : 1. The hotel smells really retro, you will smell it once you step into the lobby 2. The hotel lift can only fit 3 to 4 normal adult size guests, anything more than that will trigger the weight limit alarm 3. No free breakfast because the cafe is closed ( we booked with complementary breakfast) Conclusion: Worth to stay bz it’s really really affordable, just need improvement. Will still recommend friends to come

      Great cable channels. Great shower, clean and real value for money. Quiet area but a little remote. Grab car costs 5Rm to town. Staff are friendly and helpful. Air con is excellent, fridge and a safe. Just need better tv reception in our room. Probably tired cable or connections. Overall, great place.

      Its a 3 star hotel, but the whole place looks like its abandoned. Mouldy smelling room, but no water when we arrived and no water in the morning. The staff said that its due to electricity cutoff. But for the money, it provides big room with good cable.

      Definitely the best...”
      Everytime I stay overnight at Sandakan this place will always be my top pick. The place is extremely cozy, safe and quiet. The best part about this hotel is the cheap price but still offers the best room quality. Fresh smell and clean. People traveling in group should consider this one for sure.. They don't provide breakfast but you can just walk across the street and find restaurants (and there's a bowling centre too!)

      Very nice room, even though we only stay in standard room.. Very clean not a single dust detected! Got water heater, mini bar, safe box.. We stay in room 207, 2 single bed.. View from window is facing the ocean, the only con is the location is a bit far from new town.. But there is a very nice place quite near the hotel.. Near Harbour Mall, great food great view.. Nice environment, highly recommended!

      I found the place satisfactory, spacious, worth the money. The staff responded swiftly to any inquiries or request. Dedicated and helpful. The flaw was it was quiet scary to get there, because the place is a bit dark and there was no eateries at a safe walking distance at night. but if you are travelling prepared with a happy tummy, there should be any problem.

      Out of town but great!”
      Free rides into town from the hotel made it a perfect base for me. The staff were really helpful and kind. The immediate area is quite run down but the locals were very welcoming. I ate in a local Chinese restaurant that just opened in the evenings and it was very crowded and served great fish. Am going back to Sanbay for two more days so I obviously loved it!
