    Great location but small rooms”

    price reasonable, affordable, convenient and easy to get food and entertainment

    It is a good place to stay for backpacker and those who want budget traveling. The hotel is located at center of the town of Kota Kinabalu.The staff of the hotel quite nice and service my friend and i with a smile most of the time, simply say quite friendly.Eventhough the room of the hotel quite small but it is convenient for both of us to sleep.We also can online with free of charge at the hotel.And i am quite pleased by the staff when they work very efficient on cleaning the floor that where my friend vomit after drunk.Thank you again here to the staff of the hotel on that night cause helping us clean the floor without complaining.What a wonderful stay and holiday to both of us.

    Satisfied expectations of low-key stay”

    Location, price, easy guest management

    My stay in KK was fully dedicated to diving, so I only needed a clean room with bathroom to sleep in. No fuss. That's what I got at the Summer Lodge. Check-in, breakfast, my few enquiries about wifi and transport to the airport, and finally check-out - all was very basic and easy. The staff was friendly, but did not interfere at all with the guests unless requested. The room was basic (no window, no working aircon), but clean. I would recommend the place to independent travellers who don't need advice or help during their stay.

    Price & location

    It was not too bad but something to point out about the cleanliness of the room. It was a bit awful to found out that there were bloodstain on the bed sheet and the pillow smells bad too. I bet they never change the bed sheet before. No wardrobe in the room. Only small table and a bed. They did not prepare you any towel. You need to ask from them which the quality were awful as well. Apart from that, they provide misleading information. It stated that the room I book comes with a television but I was wrong. Found non in the room. Since it was my 1st stay at a Lodge accommodation, I bet this is standard for Lodge type of accommodation?

    well-located in the heart of KK, ready for a backpack vibration

    well-located, but a bit too expensive compared to real hotels booked online. Our room had no windows, smelled strongly humidity and had a lovely spider web drawing on the wall closed to the bed head. I've already seen better for this range of price as an hostel but in different cities... there's a breakfast too; minimalist but all-you-can-eat. I don't think I would come back

    Mostly a backpacker-hostel-dorm type place, but they do have single rooms w/ own bathroom. Very basic, no TV; but A/C and wifi acceptable. One flight of stairs just to get to office, then another to get to first rooms. Woke up one morning, surprised to find Gaya Sunday market going strong, right out front door.
