Arriving in Kota Kinabalu for business late on a thursday my patience had already been tested. Looking to relax after checking into my room I needed to use the mens room. The door was LOCKED! I asked if they could open it and a man inside said "no, use the girls room". I thought this was rather strange and did in fact try to listen to his demand but it was also being used. after about 10 minutes the man wearing an all dark blue outfit (couldn't tell if he was security or a janitor) opened the door. It smelled heavily of marijuana. It was so bad I ended up leaving the hotel to go elsewhere and use their facilities. Point being how can such a historical hotel have such low class staff. I will never stay at the Jesselton Hotel ever again and will advise my business consultants the same. To make matters worse the man did not even appologize, just walked past me and bumped into my shoulder in a rude manner. I would say stay at this hotel at your own risk because who knows what other sketchy type actions their staff would partake in with complete disregard for its patrons. There's my two cents....
