LA Hotel is drab. The furniture , carpeting and towels were over used. And the hotel is only 4 years old. The management was stingy on their room lightings too. Couldn't read without a proper reading light. But their counter staff were very helpful, always smiling and the bellhop most attentive. The Housekeeping staff were clean but rather noisy as...

I stayed for 2 nights. Room is clean and comfortable. Within walking distance to sundry shops and food joints. No fuss checking in and out. Serve good breakfast but starts rather late at 7am only. Had to hurry if one needs to catch an early flight.

I stayed for about 3 days in early 2012 when the hotel was quite new. Room was clean. Location was convenient to me and I chose the hotel at that time for its location. Finding for eateries was easy as there was one just very nearby/within easy walking. An above average hotel with a great location and I remember pleasant...

I believe this is one of the best, if not the best hotel Tawau has. Boutique style that is clean, with an easy check in check out process. Decent breakfast. A restaurant with western selections, and a sports bar across the entrance. Fairly fast internet, and great views of the water. I would Stay here again.

It's a very clean and neat hotel for a small town like Tawau. Was surprised by the full range of toilet amenities. Nothing much to shout about for the breakfast. The rooftop lounge is a must to visit! Too bad they didn't have any draft beer which we like. The reason why we couldn't give the 5 star rating is...

We stayed here for one night before departing to Sipidan-Kapalai Dive Resort. Pleasantly surprised with this hotel and the town of Tawau, extremely well managed, clean room with a great view and friendly helpful staff. The roof top bar is a great place to have an afternoon drink, great view. Breakfast was five star. We couldn't find this hotel on...

We didn't stay at this hotel but we had dinner here. This was very nice. The food was very good, try the satay and the fruit chocolate dessert. The view over the city very nice! And you were able to order good beer here! Would really recommend the restaurant.

There's really not much to choose from to begin with, however, this hotel provides all the facilities a mid-range hotel should have (Pub, restaurant, buffet breakfast). The room itself is pretty average, but basic in-room amenities are available and the room is clean. We took the smoking room because it's much cheaper, but because of that, the room have a...
