Reviewed 2 January 2014

I stayed for one night before going to mabul. I got a good night sleep and staff was helpful answering my questions. You can hear noices from outside, but for me it was ok, cause I live in much more busy street. Room was clean. That's about it.

There isn't much to the town of Semporna, but whatever restaurants, etc. you might want to visit are all quite close to Sipadan Inn 2. The rooms were very clean and well taken care of, the bathroom was also clean with a nice strong, hot shower, the bed was big, clean and comfortable with a very nice comforter, and for the price it was well worth it. Staff all speak very good English and while service definitely wasn't incredible, it was good enough, and given with a smile. I stayed in Semporna only one night and so this hotel was really just a place for me to drop my bags and lay my head for the night, and for that purpose, especially for the price, it was more than acceptable.

This hotel could've been so nice... but unfortunately 1. It stinks really badly - there is a wet market around the corner and all refuse and rotten fish are being washed up towards the hotel. Didn't notice it on the ground floor, but it's very bad in the room. 2. It's really, really noisy. There are restaurants under the hotel at the waterfront (which is great for meals), but first they were packing up everything until 1 am, banging metal tables, laughing, shouting etc., and then the boats started at 5.30 am. We were so tired the next day, it was not good. We stayed a single night and then ran away to Seafest hotel - it's more removed from the town centre (just 10 minutes walk!), but it's quiet and clean, costs just a little more AND they include breakfast. Maybe the rooms that face the street are quieter and less smelly.

This hotel could have been a very good place to stay in Semporna (quite new, great location, decent prices). Unfortunately this hotel is simply not managed and we cannot recommend this hotel to any travelers:
1. We booked 2 rooms for our family and both rooms were dirty. There were stains on both beds sheets and hair behind the door to our bathroom. I happened to drop something under the bed and I found empty crisp wrappers, bottles, hair and enough dust to suggest no one has ever cleaned under there...
2. Staff is untrained, rude and unhelpful. The reception staff have never raised the head to look at or greet clients going in and out. They have been totally indifferent to our questions about the city, concerns and our dirty room pictures.
We are going again to Semporna in October but we will never stay in Sipadan Inn 2 again.

We stayed at the Sipadan Inn 2 for one night before catching a bus to Kinabatangan. The hotel room was clean and tidy. The shower was nice and powerful. The staff were friendly and kind. It was walking distance to the market and restaurants. It was close to the ferry boat dock for the boats that came in from Mabul Island which was easy. It was also walking distance from the main bus terminal.

We booked family room for 2 nights which consists of 1 Queen and 1 Single.
Location - very close to jetty, restaurant and supermarket
But 1 thing need to prepared is cash, else credit card payment additional 5%. Pay when you check in plus RM50 refundable deposit. You will be given 1 bag which consists of 1 air con and 1 TV remote control.
The room is clean and equips with mineral water, boiler, hair dryer, toiletries and coffee making facility. free WIFI in the room as well. Flat screen TV with SD card and USB slot, enable us to view our photos end of the day.
No lift because it's 2 storey shop bouses.
Overall, we were quite satisfy with Sipadan Inn 2. We will choose Sipadan Inn 2 again.

Room Tip: Prepare cash, else credit card charge add 5%, no lift. choose sea view room
