Good location, clean enough, air con, no breakfast. The normal rate is 110 RM but they can offer the room with discount for 94 RM I thought semporna was worse the waterfront is nice with good restaurants and it is better to start on the dive or snorkel tour from here, although it is not very good marine life there...

We are here for one night. Very cheap and well located. Friendly staff. Our bathroom is not very clean though. Marks everywhere and cobwebs! The town is not very nice. A lot of children under 5 begging. Just seen one sniffing substances. Expect to be hastled by them for money.

We choose a room on the ground floor because the one on the first floor was quite smelly. Problem was that we got the music from the reception til the middle of the night and were woken up by the staff coming very early morning as they were speaking really loud. As a result we did not get much sleep.... More

We emailed Sipadan Inn to make a booking as it was cheaper than booking via the booking sites. A week before we arrived we sent a confirmation email so everything was ok on arrival. The first night we had a room at the front of the building which was fine, although you do get a bit of outside noise. It... More

Really nice hotel. Super clean and new. Fast wifi. Helpful staff. Good location with all the dive shops within a 1 minute walk. 110 RM a night for a double room. Cheap laundry across the road A/C works well. Only let down is the price didn't include breakfast.

We were only there for one night. The staff were helpful and polite. Rooms were good, bathrooms clean, linen fresh and air con good. Next door to pharmacy, convenient for restaurants - pretty much all you could need.

Nothing amazing, quiet room, AC works, clean, WiFi fast. The price is OK but we later moved to Holiday Inn down the road for diving days, and the rate there was a lot cheaper (at least with scuba), and room wasn't much worse. The location of Sipadan Inn is good, only stroll from harbour, restaurants, laundry and Giant super market.... More

We stayed in two hotels in Semporna and this was definitely the better of the two. Clean and tidy, new comfy bed and fresh smelling sheets. Good hot and cold power shower. We stayed here two nights and were not disappointed.
