Booked at last minute and most hotels in Semporna are fully booked. Stayed 2 nights on 10 & 11 May 2017 Deluxe King room. U cant expect much on hotels in Semporna. We arrived late at about 8pm and when we stepped in the whole lobby smells like fish market. Terrible. We got room 130 and smell as such too,...

As there's not a whole lot to do in Semporna itself, we used this place to crash before we went diving. You definitely get what you pay for at this place, not that central, toilet stinks, it's noisy, wallpaper falling off and no windows ... Having said that, you get aircon for a cheap price.

Hotel staff are okay. Room is average, good enough for a tired group of friends. I got the room price for RM80 due to a discount by my telco provider.Toilet however is a bit moldy and scary if you are a solo traveller (shower makes noises) It is very near to the express bus station (within walking distance) so we...

Room is quite okay, how shower and clean toilet.But the room does not seem to be maintained regularly, clogged drain, spider web on ceilling. Shabby looking towels that looks more like floor wipe than towel, and mosquitos in the room? Beds are quite spacious, but the pillows are quite hard. Door of my room is quite difficult to be opened...

Good basic facilities provided (Heater & Wi-Fi). Suitable for backpackers but it's an average room i must say. Near to Semporna jetty with 5-8 mins walking distance. You can find a restaurants at the end of the hotel block.

With private bathroom, WiFi and water heater, I must the price is very reasonable. However there isn't enough space, we have to use the doorway to perform solat. Only 5-8 minutes walking distance from the market and the jetty, there are two restaurants next to this hotel.

Marina hotel is a cheap accommodation, nothing bad, nothing luxurious, the staff is nice and friendly. You'll spend a not exciting night waiting to go to Mabul (so I did). Anyway it worth it! Semporna is not a very beautiful city and marina hotel fits perfectly in it.

The deco is nice. The price is quite okay. Comfortable rooms. The single bed room's size is small and cute while the twin-bed room is quite spacious. Location-wise a bit farther from the seaside but hey, Semporna is a small town, you can walk all around by foot. Service was ok. There's a hot water machine at the foyer. It...

Stayed for 4D3N from 12/10-15/10/2013. I can only give points to its lobby deco. Modern and clean. But that's it. 1. Service was poor. Hardly 24 hours upon check-in, the staff demanded us to pay full amount of our 4 days stay. When i asked why, the staff replied - "boss's order". I mean hello? i've never come across any...

Leaking shower ( hose connection ) ,miserable soap, shower and shampoo amenity - tiny and looks 3/4 filled, ugly red pail and scoop hindering use...
