        Location, Food, The floating style

        Dragon Inn Floating Resort is probably the best place to stay in Semporna. Its close to all diving centres, which are providing trips to all islands. They have their own not expensive restaurant with good food. In walking distance is big market and others restaurant. Resort is a little bit old and you have to pay for wifi, but if you are all days on trips , its great hotel.

        Pleasantly Surprised”

        Location, Ambience, Size

        My friends and I were heading for a dive trip at Sipadan, and I booked room with Dragon Inn even though the folks at the dive center was skeptical of the quality. It was therefore a very pleasant surprise to my group when we reached the Inn. The rooms were of very good size and with all the necessary amenities. Great working condition air-con and hot shower facility. And the fact that the rooms are built on top of wooden planks off the sea means when you wake up in the morning you can see lights reflecting from the sea shining through the floor partitions. Quite beautiful. Foodwise was ok. Got 15% off meals as hotel guests. We didn't order seafood but had noodles instead. Taste was average. All in all though, very good value for money. Definitely not a 1-star.

        We stayed here twice both one night stays. It was located within walking distance to everything you need, a few restaurants, a supermarket, atm and the jetty. There isn't much in semporna so the hotel couldnt be better located. The staff were very friendly and we were given a 15% discount to use in the restaurant- we ️ate twice for evening and once breakfast we were super impressed. The rooms were clean, spacious.if you want a fridge, wifi or a kettle then you need to upgrade but we were happy with the double room.

        We reached at the hotel around 11.15 A.M since our 1st flight from KL-Tawau at 6.00A.M. Me and my husband so tired after long journey from KL. So i have tried to request an early check in, and the staff is very considerate! We were checked in around 11.30 A.M. Thank you for letting us rest in the room! I love so much the environment and the concept of the hotel! Very good location, walking distance to Semporna Jetty, seafood restaurants and shops. Overall good place to stay and we will come back again next time =)

        Dragon between rubish”

        Dragon inn is close to Semporna "city main place", it is on a water

        Like for me Dragon Inn is one of best hotels in Semporna....m but it doesn't mean it is GOOD... Maybe compare room price / standard is ok (AC in each room) but....., but.... It could be so beautiful place but no one want to pick up a tons of rubbish from the water between the hotel small houses... It is terrible to wake up, move from room , and see tire 215/60 R15 directly next to your doors in water.... or big plastic bag with empty cans, or floating plastic bottles everywhere. It doesn't cost to much to sometimes pick up it from water... Generally - nice people, nice stuff, very friendly).

        this is place is not as bad as being reviewed here. What can u expect from a floating house sewage system? This is the way how the origins here built house. If u want something different u may choose to stay here, if u prefer bath tub and all choose other hotel. It's just a matter of preferences! Me, i love it here! And u can't expect everyone to be able to speak english ! Why not learnt local language a bit instead ?

        If you have to stay in Semporna this is a good option”

        Semporna really is not a place you want to stay in and the options are few and far between. The Dragon Inn is one of the best options that are available. It is a away from the seediness of the town and is clean and tidy. One of the down sides is that it is close to the bars and this makes it very noisy early in the evening when the bands and karaoke begin, but it does not last that long.

        the room was comfortable, spacious, simple and clean, it's a unique floating resort with nice sea view scenery and it's near to the jetty. Booked Double Room Deluxe for 1 night for stopover before our awesome 4 islands hopping trip and we decided to extend another night to avoid fatigue after the sea activities (cancelled 1night in tawau since there's nothing much to do in tawau). overall, it was a memorable and good stay.

        Room was clean, very basic but within walking distance to jetty and restaurants. Great if you're in semporna for diving and just need a place to sleep. There's no breakfast provided and no electric kettle in the room so make sure you pack enough food in case you get hungry at night (or morning).

        This Inn is located near the local jetty where you get easy access to island. The design is pretty however it was quite noisy due to its proximity to the jetty. Despite being located in Semporna n being god gifted crystal clear water, and also having numerous tourist, I find the sea to be dirty and polluted..I think an effort to clean the resort or at least the sea near the resort should be made The place is located near some gift shop and also pearl restaurant. You can get 15% discount due to your stay at the resort. The food at the restaurant is quite tasty, I'd say 9 on the scale of 10. The staffs are also very friendly

        The rooms are big enough and with air-con but no windows and you have to pay extra for Wi-Fi (that's the first time I've seen that in south east Asia and I live here for 3.5 years). The bathroom is outdoors and basic but clean. Overall it's a good choice for the limited options in Semporna

        Been there for 3D2N. Some valuable experience and tips as follows. 1. Good location, nearby 3 jetties were about 5minutes walk. 2. Free coupon for dine in at the restaurant. 3. As I arrived early in the night, the surrounding already dark. Somehow as I enter the room and went to the toilet, I can see debris, rubbish down into the water. 4. Room at the back (block C, D, E, F, G) are not really sound proof and some places can be see thru the wall. The timber has gaps. 5. Room at the front row somehow quite okay, good sound proof and no gaps on the wall -- as I experienced changing my room as problem mentioned above. 6. Room a bit spacious, Tv provided with limited channel. Not big issue as I dont really need to watch TV on holiday :p 7. Receptionists were very helpful and friendly. 8. Nearby town about 10minutes walk. Overall experienced -- GOOD! Will highly recommend this resort and for sure will come again :)

        NICE RESORT”

        Been there on 21/04/2017-23/04/2017. In semporna town, they have a celebration on regatta lepa-lepa. This resort near tourism center in semporna and along way to lobby, we need to go through lots of people like to sit there, throwing rubbish to the sea. At night, we have been disturb by loud music from the near club until 4am. Overall, this resort was okay...
