Hotel Sandakan, Sandakan
Time machine
It was probably a popular business hotel in the 90s but not much has been maintained since. Wifi worked for a while then out for a day. A decent breakfast is served and the staff is courteous.

Very Good8.0
Good budget option
The hotel needs updating but the rooms are clean. Breakfast had local and some western options, also a coffee machine which was nice. Tv in room including fox movies which was nice after a long day exploring. Only real issue is that the WiFi was slow and was not password protected. It worked though.
