Indah Inn - Tawau - Building
4
8.5 Excellent (54 reviews)
Overview Reviews
Set in Tawau, Indah Inn features a restaurant, bar and free WiFi throughout the property. The guest house has family rooms. The units come with air conditioning, a flat-screen TV with satellite channels, a kettle, a bath or shower, a hairdryer and a desk. At the guest house all rooms are equipped with a wardrobe and a private bathroom. The nearest airport is Tawau Airport, 16 km from Indah Inn.
7.5 Good
Pros: Stayed at the hotel because it was near the airport. Clean, comfy and modern facilities. Toiletries in bathroom. Kettle, drinking water and drink station in room. A few restaurants and a little shop close to the hotel but not a lot else. Hotel booked a taxi to the airport for us.
Cons: The man on reception was made us feel very uncomfortable as he kept demanding we had a photo with him before he would book us a taxi as we were "foreign" and he wanted to show his friends. The photo was for himself and not needed for any paperwork or related to the hotel in any way (we refused). Very unprofessional.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The staff is friendly and the location is near to airport.
7.9 Good
Pros: Excellent hotel tho..nice and friendly staf.
Cons: Quite place.nothing is near the block.
7.1 Good
Pros: Less then 15 minutes to Tawau Airport. I was scuba diving in Mobul / Sipadan area and had an 11:30 am departure. Had I stayed in Semporna Harbor area the night before the flight (like most unknowing tourists), I would have had to wake up at 06:00 to for the 1-1/2 hour + drive to the airport. Profoundly easier to stay here and wake up at 9am and be at the airport at 09:30. The highway from the hotel to the airport is four lane divided. The road of out Semporna is full of traffic lights and is a two lane road for the first 45 minutes, so what could possibly go wrong, lol.
Cons: #1.) There is not the slightest chance of finding anything like a western breakfast in the area, at all period. #2.) The bathroom smells. The hotel does not use the most basic of plumbing code items installed in every western drain, namely, no P-Trap. Therefore the bathroom has a noticeable odor. I told them to put in P-traps and gave them pictures and information. I highly doubt they will take the advice. You can stop the odor if you plug the sink drain and run an inch or two of water. That will seal the sink drain and not let the odor in.
7.9 Good
Pros: It was a nice stay for a night just before leaving for the airport the next day.

Cons: Quite industrial park with few food options

Cons: They give me the room at the 5th flr. But it was covered with dust (floor, bed and chair). Even got lizard dung at the chair for the dressing table. The rooms seems like unoccupied for months, because the bed lamp and cabinet also covered with spiderweb. And the 5th floor looks spooky as I don't see anyone there. Then I request for a change to another room. They move me to the 4th floor but the same condition too. I stayed for a night, and decide to check out the next day although I've already paid the deposit and booked for 4 days. When I asked the staff at the counter if they put booking at the top floor, I was so surprised when he said yes, the cheap one. Fyi, I booked via Trivago. And I really don't expect that the hotel put the booking one at the top floor with very bad condition. The housekeeping staffs should clean the room accordingly.
