We stayed at this hotel after arriving in Sandakan late at night and prior to leaving early the next morning for a trip to the jungle. As many other reviewers have noted, the location is not ideal - kind of within an industrial area and away from the main city centre of Sandakan. In saying that, the hotel was perfect for our purposes. It is fairly new so the room and furnishings were great and very clean. We didn't try the restaurant so I can't comment on that but there was someone playing live music at one of the restaurants when we arrived. The breakfast was nice and the staff were extremely friendly. For the price I don't think you can go wrong at all. The Sandakan city centre is nothing to rave about so if you don't need to be located there I would definitely recommend this hotel as a great option.
