Should be noted that free airport shuttle service starts from 5:00am so it's not free all the time.

Bed Cleanliness
Generally, location is good and restaurants could be reached very easily. Rooms are small but acceptable, however, bed sheets / linen / covers are not satisfactory, looks to me that a complete change is urgently required.

Midnight Airport transfer by the hotel is more expensive than the airport taxi
Being located near the airport, it is one of my favourable hotel for overnight stay as there is no transit hotel in the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (KKIA). As a suggestion, the lighting of the room should be brighter to see if the place is clean and the staff should know how to greet customer that has a long flight.
