          nice and cozy stay”

          friendly staff, clean and location

          I have an awesome stay at the Ocean Inn.My big thanks to the staff in attending my friend and I during our 4D3N in Semporna and Island hopping.Credit to all the young males staff,Mr Hassan,Saddam,Adam, Nazrie and Andy. They were very polite and soft manners,always smiling to the guest.When i am waiting for my friend to come down in the lobby(the lobby is quite small and crammed when all of my group of 7 were gathering around the counter),guest who were requesting something, the staff on duty decline in a very soft tone . I am quite impressed by their professionalism.They were very friendly and easy going. Check-in was fast.We were so happy when one of our standard twins room was up graded to a bigger deluxe room( that can accommodate 4 of us). As for food, the hotel is surrounded by many restaurant over looking the sea side.Some restaurant were opened early around 3pm but few were closed during the festive of Raya Haji recently.Only minus is the sink was leaking when i tried to fill in the sink bowl to rinse my wet clothing after the dive. Check out time is quite prompt(we request for extended late check out but the hotel was fully booked. Anyway we still able to store our luggage in their store room just next to the counter. After returning from my island trip, i am still able to use the toilet to wash and change. There was no breakfast included but the strong WiFi was a bonus although in the morning all the celcome line was not so clear/good due to very bad weather condition -heavy hazy.The hotel warm welcome and hospitality makes all the makcik2 disappointment vanish quickly and stay here for the day enjoying the comfortable bed with moderate air condition temperature.(some cant stand too cold and some one really the maximum.I do recommend this hotel to my friends and others who want to fine good and new hotel in Semporna. I definitely will come and stay here again.

          cleaness, location, the staff

          The most impressive thing of ocean inn is it's a little bit over priced than other hostels in semporna, maybe because it's the newest one. Don't look at the location, it's meaningless in semporna because it's really really small and you can walk to any where. The room is not big although we booked a sea view room,but it's really clean and shower water is great. The sea view room have a balcony which front to the sea but also numbers of bar in the downstairs which make some noises.

          The location of the hotel are perfect. There's restaurants which is just a few steps away (seafoods,Malay cuisine,chinese cuisine or Indian cuisine). There's also Guardians & Watsons for your convenience. This is the newest & cleanest hotel which I had stayed in Semporna so far :) Perfect location. I hope the cleanliness will remain :) I'll definitely stay in again :)

          Very clean, comfortable modern cosy room, even through we did not occupy the room with a balcony. The surroundings are busy, market oriented but the hotel is very conveniently located to dive shops, the marina, and water side restaurants. Zaki and Azanshah were wonderful hosts. They were friendly and extremely responsive to our requests and questions. Felt safe in the hotel and appreciated the professional attitude of the staff.

          Location, TV, Price

          I only stayed here so I could do some cheap diving without paying loads to stay on Mabul, the hotel is ok, the room was decent for the price, the beds are dirty though and the covers were suppose to be changed but they always had dirty marks on. The staff were a bit daft and I ordered a taxi 1 hour before for the airport and it still turned up 30 mins late and they just laughed. Semporna is an absolute hole and this hotel is probably the most modern thing there, and if you don't like Chinese people don't stay here as they cater for them.

          1)Location: hotel is just next to some famous restaurants (i.e., fat mom); 2) Comfort: hotel is quit new and clean; 3) Check-in: although the man at the front desk cannot speak English, he is kind.

          Not bad, I'll recommend my friends to stay there if they go to Semporna.

          This is the new hotel (maybe renovate), so the condition of the room was well maintained. Although the bathroom might be small and the TV had limited channel, but hey we spent more time at island so that was not a big problem. The staff was so friendly and helpful. Anyway, we had great time here!

          Must book the balcony room. Then you can enjoy the million dollar view of the ocean. Room is small but comfortable. Air Conditional work well. They provide mineral water every day. But the room have balcony will be noisy from afternoon till late night as the below are a row of restaurant. Also, the toilet need improved. The worker did not clean it properly.

          Great location, a bit noisy though”

          The location is great, but it is right above the waterfront dining area so it gets quite noisy. At around 9 pm, it quiets down. Clean rooms, nice amenities, nice balcony. No frills otherwise...a good, clean room and a great location!

          The Loudest Place I Have Ever Stayed”

          This is undoubtedly the worst place I have stayed at in the past 7+ months of traveling. For starters, the staff is unfriendly and can barely speak or understand English, the wifi is painfully slow, and the walls are paper thin so you can hear every noise from the next room or the hallway. But the worst part is, every morning you are awoken to extremely loud banging due to construction next door. This happens every day, starting from very early in the morning until evening. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Semporna where you can actually get any sleep, then you should avoid this place like the plague.

          I was heading to Mabul Island and this was very close to the dive company. The area is very dingy, but the hotel was first class.

          Clean and new, but NOISY!!!”

          This was a nicely renovated small hotel, right on the boardwalk by the jetty area. The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms were clean, but this was all overshadowed by the fact that this is the noisiest room I've ever been in. We were in a standard double room, with only a window to the hallway. Even if the guests and staff didn't yell, slam doors and generally cause as much noise as humanly possible, you could hear people practically BREATHING in the hallway. The doors and walls really need to be soundproofed so that you can actually sleep.Other than that issue, the rest is fairly nice for what it is.

          Clean, nice balcony, new & well maintained facilities

          Good room, clean and tidy. A bit tiny though. A bit noisy in the night due to restaurant on the first floor.

          Good value for money, next door to Sipadan Scuba diving school”

          Small hotel, air conditioned, very new, good for divers who attends the nearby diving schools. Very close to lots of restaurants and the supermarkets in the tiny town.
