Due to bad weather, the airline has given us a voucher to stay overnight at this hotel. As this was a last minute arrangement, the hotel staff reacted quickly to help us to get into the room and rest as it was past midnight when we arrived. I am impressed with the teamwork of the boss and his staffs. They...

Not a terrible hotel but our experience was not pleasant. My wife and I came back to Sandakan for Cheng Beng, we chose this hotel because it is near to our relatives' house so that they can pick us up easily, but to be honest, I somehow regretted choosing it. Thumbs up: 1) We were granted for early check-in at...

I cannot find an adjective horrible enough to describe the staff of this hotel, sans one young man. Actually, I was not supposed to stay at this hotel, and I wish I hadn't. I arrived at midnight on the bus because of traffic, so it was too late to look for another hotel. This Best Western is less than 100...

Internet Connectivity was fast and smooth. Quite Environment during day time but a bit noisy during late night where staff clearing the lounge areas and clearly heard inside the room. Staff was polite and helpful. Unable to utilise the breakfast at designated restaurant due to routine general cleaning.
