Overall decent place to stay for a night before heading out to the islands diving. The rooms are comfortable with all of the essentials such as air con, a safe and ensuite bathrooms. The front counter staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location near to bars and eateries.

Disappointed when the hotel did not inform us earlier that they card machine is not functioning and unable to PROVIDE ACCESS CARD! How to enter your room is the MOST IMPORTANT issue to each customer. Every time we need to enter the room, we have to inform the receptionist and wait outside our room for a few minutes to enter...

Stayed here for a night as I was waiting for my flight back to KK. The location is good, at the center of Tawau which is very small in the first place. So basically everything is within walking distance. Not 5-star clean but ok for a night. And I ran into a front desk staff who's very kind and willing...
