3 Days 2 Nights Stay @ Pantai Inn Kota Kinabalu
Would say the best thing about Pantai Inn is the strategic location, walking distance to Padang Merdeka Bus Terminal, Sunday market & etc. I would say the price is a little overpriced for the room condition that I had. There's a Chinese restaurant beside this hotel - Restaurant Thien Thien. Very convenient for those who stays here. Food and price here are reasonable. I believe this restaurant is Halal as there's many Muslim customers visiting this restaurant. As for the room condition, I would say its below my expectation. I got a room which doesn't have a cover seat for WC - first time encountered such situation in my life. Found out the towel provided have dirty stains. Not sure if there's bed bugs but my feet felt itchy. No slipper provided too. Other than that, the AC and water heater are working fine.

Pls change it
Location, restaurants nearby, Gaya street
Such an old school hotel.. The price is bit expensive for room like my grandma's.. Just because the hotel was at hot location Doesnt mean you charge people at unreasonable price. Pls change the furniture, TV, bathroom because their room sssssoooo laaammme.. It's not worth for money..

Nice stay
The location is good.. as its was near to bus station and also the sunday market taht was called gaya street. Nearby restaurant ...
The stay was ok..nice staff.. even very helpful when needed help or cab to airport. Although the room was quite small.. if you were bringing big bag.. there only left lil bit of space to walk from bed to bathroom.. For next business trip will sure to choose this hotel again..
