Poor hotel maintenance, does not even look like in the photo as advertised! ”
This hotel is not well maintain. There is cockroaches plying on the bed and bathroom. Bed are old with torn bed sheet.Electricity is limited with no water heater at night. Kindly do not advertise this hotel to other and spoil your reputation. I have spoil mine after booking it for others. Such embarrassment.

Worst of worst”
If I can give no stars, that would be my option. I check in and immediately check out. Worst hotel I had ever been. It's smell awful and the room is not up to code, electrical wire is expose, no lighting & the AC barely works. Check in to My Inn Hotel nearby.

tolong ambil perhatian tentang isu ini”
kebersihan tak terjaga seperti bilik air ada lipas dan kotor seperti tak dibersihkan. kebersihan bilik yang sangt mengecewakan cadar dan selimut tidak ditukar selepas orang check out hanya dikemas kembali. langsir tingkap yang koyak, lantai bilik kotor, lantai beranda bilik kotor, pekerja kakitangan yang tidak mesra, bilik tidak ada alat kawal pengawa dingin. tuala dan bantal yang kotor. tolong naik tarafkan kemudahan bilik seperti bilik air mandi. tab mandi yang kotor berlumut. k terima kasih:)

Pengalaman yang tidak memuaskan”
Hotel yg terbiar, mungkin baru diambil alih. Kelengkapan bilik yang lama, tidak dibersihkan dengan teliti, kerosakan tidak dibaiki. Tidak disyorkan kepada sesiapa juga

Keadaan bilik yg sgt TERUK...”
During check-in, staf semua friendly.. Location sgt strategik sbb terletak di tgh2 bandar Tawau. Stay sini 2 mlm sempena Festival Kebudayaan 20-22/10/16. Mmg best sbb perarakan betul2 lalu depan hotel, bilik sy pulak ada balkoni, cukup tgk dr atas saja, sgt seronok.... TAPI..... Masuk dlm bilik lps check-in, 1. Bau karpet basah yg teramat sangat kuat menusuk hidung! 2. TV zaman jepun, x kisah juga kalau boleh tengok, ni langsung x boleh hidup, KABEL pun tercabut mcm bekas kena gigit tikus jaa.. 3. Cadar katil cuma separuh ok! Bila masuk dlm selimut tu, bawah x ada cadar lagi, part atas ja ada cadar. 4. Mandi x ada heater, ok lagi... Masalahnya air pun mcm air kencing, camana mau mandi ??? p/s: Lokasi hotel sgt strategik, hrp pihak pengurusan upgrade sikit la sblm hotel tu bankrup & jadi rumah hantu.... sekian.
