A rather normal hotel with above average rates. The location is convenient for nearby food, Giant for groceries, Watsons/Guardian beauty stores and pharmacy. It is also a 5 minute walk to the public jetty. The room is rather basic and small. There is no elevator so lugging your dive gear or heavy luggage is a must unless you’re in the ground floor rooms. Bathroom water pressure was good but the hotel needs a refurb. The bathroom was wet and not very clean. Sheets were thin and stained. Air conditioning was ok. We will look for other alternatives in future. It used to be good when new but it’s now not worth it given the high price and old facilities.

Was there for a night before my departure for dive next morning. Location is good as it is near jetty. But pretty noisy as the eateries are just downstairs. Also there seems to have water supply issues as water supply to bath room only restored at 10pm.

Semporna is not the nicest city in Malaysia neither the cleanest so to have a nice room can be important; the room at Sipadan Inn it's nothing exceptional, but it's clean and big enough to spend one night with ease of mind; a standard double room costed us 125 RM (about 25 euros) including a/c wife and a proper toilet with functioning shower clean towels, soaps etc. these thing should be a given but sometimes they're not... If it's in your budget I would recommend this place, it's close to the jetty and to the restaurant area

Semporna is a town and not a city. Semporna is famous and known in the global tourist map due to the popularity of Sipadan Island for diving which is one if the top 10 diving sites in the world. Tourists coming from overseas have to pass through Semporna Jetty to go to the islands. Finding a good hotel in Semporna is difficult as most hotels are below 3-Star categories but a heaven for back packers and budget travellers. There is no international class hotels of 4&5-Star category. However, there are numerous hotels of other categories and home stays and hotels are nirmally fully booked. Sipadan Inn 2 is one of those new hotels located near the floating restaurant. It is located right in the centre of many restaurants. The room is small about 15 sqm in size, reminds me of hotels in Tokyo and Paris. The room is very compact and difficult to open a large size luggage but everythingekse is quite complete. The view to Semporna City and the floating restaurant is indeed breathtaking with small corridor to view. The hotel does not serve breakfast but has arrangement with a restaurant nearby to serve the guests with pre-selected menus. The room is comfortable, shower & toilet worked well but cannot avoid feeling a bit cramped. There is TV, Air-cond., place to hang your clothes. There is also an elevator. The lobby is small but there are seats and just outside the door there are plenty if seats from cafe operators. Highly recommended for short stay or transit passengers and fir budget travellers it could be a place made from heaven. Hotels are basically cheap in Semporna and if you use USD it is dirt cheap and almost anyone from US could afford to stay in Semporna. As a trend, 80% of the tourists in Semporna are Chinese as there are 80 direct flights from China. As a whole Sipadan Inn 2 is quite a good and comfortable hotel to stay and as a rating I would give 7.5 out of 10 but assessment is a subjective matter.
