    Good location, modern design, good value for money

    I spent 2 nights in Tawau at the start and the end of my diving trip. I didn't explore the town much but the VS Hotel was within walking distance to restaurants and stores. For a budget hotel in Malaysia, the VS was more modern than I expected and a bit cleaner. The room didn't have any windows but otherwise the place was comfortable. Both of my rooms were right next to the lobby but I only heard people talking a few times. When I requested a taxi to the airport, the staff responded perfectly. Also, I had trouble with getting back from a remote island and so my scheduled got delayed and VS changed my reservation without charging me extra which they could have done based on Agoda's policies. Overall, I think it was good value for money and the staff earned my respect by being flexible with my reservation.

    Very good for 1 or 2 nights stay”

    Clean, fast internet, staff friendly, AC Room

    We stayed at the VS hotel because we arrived at Tawau Airport at 3pm and did not make it to Semporna to get the last boat to Mabul Island... The hotel was ok for the price (uss20), clean room, tipical Asia bathroom with the shower super close to the WC, AC worked perfectly and the staff was super attentive and spoke very good english, so if we are in Tawau again I would come back. Now, my tip to travellers going to Mabul Island is go directly to Semporna and have a night there versus in Tawau, because at least in semporna you have travel agencies and can book your boat or do something..in Tawau you have nothing to do.

    Great solo room with good wifi, large bed and hot shower.”

    Would never bother staying in Tawau again, real dive of a town but if planning on going to Semporna for islands and get in too late to take bus then this is a decent place to stay. The town is unfriendly so maybe staying at a dorm room hostel is better though if you want people to go out with.

    Good enough for overnight transit”

    Clean, lots of local dinings nearby

    I stayed here for overnight transit after a scuba diving trip in Sipadan. At first I was disappointed because it is located at 2nd floor and taking my heavy diving equipment up not that easy. However, staffs there happily helped me with my luggage during check in and check out, so I had no complaint. I chose this because Tawau is the nearest city to airport, so I need not to wake up early for my flight. There are lots of local foods around this area and also supermarket, 7-Eleven etc within 5 mins walking. Room was clean and good enough for overnight budget stay.

    Budgeted, it is nice for people that on backpack.”

    Wifi, Fast check in and check out, easy to book.

    I just stayed for 6hours as a pit stop to rest before i depart to semporna. I reached the hotel at approximately 0945pm, they allow 24-hours check in, so it is convenient for us that with night flight. After we checked in, we rushed to the convenient store to buy a couple of mineral water, at that time almost all the store around already close, but we saw there is servay hyperstore there, mean there should not be any problem for grocery. By the way,there are good food and market around vs hotel, we are lucky that the taxi driver that took us bring us around that are to intro us the good food without any extra charges. But the time not allow us to visit, for sure will go again if I'm there again.
