Stayed one night after arriving at YVR really late. Flight was delayed a bit so I barely got to the hotel on time as the front desk closes at 11:30pm. Room decors were pretty much expected for a hotel in this price range. However, the room was really clean for the price and how old it is. The bed was... More

Perfect location right at Columbia Skytrain station. Great food. An omelet at 9 pm is definitely worth having should a person have breakfast for dinner. Great rates as well. Next time I am down for more than 2 days I am staying there again

We spent 3 nights at The Met in New Westminster. We didn't opt for a river view so we were at the rear of the hotel. A Sky Train station is directly behind the hotel but it caused no noise issue as it does not run during the late night and when it was running it was not a disruption.... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice in the past year. While both the lobby and rooms are somewhat dated, they were always neat and clean and have everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is also a beautiful sitting room on each floor. Granted, there is no free breakfast, but there are many choices for eating within... More

Tired old place in a run down area, ambulances run past the front and the skytrain screeches behind the back so it is noisy. The room was clean but well used, front door staff only till 11.00 and other than Subway not a place near for breakfast

This was our 2nd stay and the room was better than the first time. Will request it next time (hopefully). The walls are thin so we heard our Neighbours talking & woke to their "loud" tv at 6:30 a.m. Not impressed ! Room pretty clean (few exceptions) & comfy beds. Mini fridge, microwave, coffee maker in room. 15% discount on... More

No, this is not a luxury hotel, but for what it is, for our needs, and for the price, it certainly deserves an excellent rating. Our room was plain but large and perfectly clean and pleasant, and there was a very pleasant sitting area in the center of our floor. The staff was very helpful. The train does pass right... More

Found "The Met" online as we were going to be staying in New Westminster to watch the Canucks lose and we didn't want to drive that night! The hotel is older but clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and the bed was comfortable. This is not a high end hotel, the rooms are clean but sparsely furnished with not... More

My boyfriend and I stayed there for one night. We arrived later at night and it was a difficult neighborhood to find dinner after 10. The hotel staff were all friendly and helpful but the condition of the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. The furniture was dated and had a kind of dingy feel. The room was... More

I needed a place to stay for a couple of nights and it turned out ok. After reading reviews, I chose to request a room on the top floor ( fourth floor) on the Columbia street side, which faces the Fraser river. I was there a Tuesday and Wednesday so the milage may differ on the weekend, but I had... More
