Please be aware; if you are thinking of booking a hotel near Kota Kinabalu airport please please do not even think of staying at Kota Kinabalu airport VIEW hotel. They say you get what you pay for but this place really was pushing it!! I have stayed in many budget hotels, hostels etc and they were 100% more cleaner than this place. It's the first time ever that I walked into my hotel room and turned around and asked for my money back. It was even pouring down with rain but I could not stay there. The carpets were so dirty, the walls were mouldy, the place smelled - it was just horrible and they were looking for 140 myr per night!!
