The best choice for budget hotel.

Cheap and affordable, located at strategic place for food and sightseeing. It’s a great place for those with tight budget. Just that it can be a bit noisy, but was fine for me.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    Very calm place. Has spacious parking space. Not sure if it is secured. Food for breakfast is limited but fine for us since we do not eat much. Spacious room for 2 person. Will come back for next trip to Sandakan.

    Sanbay Hotel”
    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.

    Simple Hotel”
    This Hotel was just a one night - despite being isolated - a lot of shops were closed around it. Was able to get a grabcar to town which was just few minutes away and back. The Sanbay is not a high end hotel BUT comfortable enough to stay. We were sad to know that the restaurant has closed down - kind of strange a hotel not having a restaurant. We watched the Final World Cup 2018 - it was unfortunate that reception was bad and hard to see. Or else the staff were very welcoming and extremely friendly! Will recommend to friends and travelers that wish to stay and save a lot of money!

    Pros: parking space, room size, price and quiet location. Cons: some room having problem with noise from electrical equipment, door 209 not working, no smoke sensor on landing, staff and security seems not react when reported someone smoking on level 2, restaurant close for good so no more breakfast. Wi-Fi working at last!
