          Room is spacious, clean and smell good. Staff are attentive. Although the location are a little bit out of town, it consider OK because we have our own transport. They even sell UFO tart at the reception. Taste a lot better compare to SDG Kopitiam and Kedai Roti Gold Crown! Cons: No wifi, tv channel not clear

          Good points: 1.super quiet , good for rest 2. Spacious room 3. Toilet super clea 4. Friendly staffs 5. Free car park To be improve : 1. The hotel smells really retro, you will smell it once you step into the lobby 2. The hotel lift can only fit 3 to 4 normal adult size guests, anything more than that will trigger the weight limit alarm 3. No free breakfast because the cafe is closed ( we booked with complementary breakfast) Conclusion: Worth to stay bz it’s really really affordable, just need improvement. Will still recommend friends to come

          Everytime I stay overnight at Sandakan this place will always be my top pick. The place is extremely cozy, safe and quiet. The best part about this hotel is the cheap price but still offers the best room quality. Fresh smell and clean. People traveling in group should consider this one for sure.. They don't provide breakfast but you can just walk across the street and find restaurants (and there's a bowling centre too!)

          Out of town but great!”
          Free rides into town from the hotel made it a perfect base for me. The staff were really helpful and kind. The immediate area is quite run down but the locals were very welcoming. I ate in a local Chinese restaurant that just opened in the evenings and it was very crowded and served great fish. Am going back to Sanbay for two more days so I obviously loved it!

          Overall a good hotel, but the shower water is not hot.”
          On the first day, they told us that the hot water is not functioning because there are using solar heating panel and maybe it isn't a sunny day on that day. But, it was still a bearable temperature that day. But, after that, it goes hot and cold, not sure what is happening and at the last day, it was a cold shower. My only complain would be the hot water being inconsistent, I am wondering why they don't have a backup heater powered using electricity for the hot water. Else, it is a good experience. Nice breakfast and room.
