I was a bit disappointed in Sandakan itself, which is perhaps why I was especially pleased with my decision to stay at the Sheraton for only approx $60/night (excluding tax, etc). Really, the key features were the pool, the room and its view, and the service at the front desk.
Location is about as good as you can get in Sandakan, from what I can tell. There is a full-on market across the street, selling fruit/fish/meat on the first floor, and delicious food on the 2nd and 3rd levels. Nearby are streets with small restos, everything from local seafood to KFC. There is a micro-mall attached to the building with a pharmacy, Body Shop, and a few other shops.
