We stayed here for 4 days/3 nights and had a great time. This hotel is in a great location, steps from the bay and surrounded by tasty restaurants. The hotel itself met our needs: warm, clean, and comfortable. But this place is nobody's definition fancy. Pros: cheap, great location, fast Wi-Fi, kitchenette, good water pressure, stocked towels and toiletries. Cons:... More

We arrived in Vancouver at midnight. We had been travelling for 13 hours from Mexico, through the States to Vancouver. We missed the last ferry to Vancouver Island and had to stay in Vancouver til morning. We chose this hotel for its relative proximity to the ferry terminal and the fact that we did not want to pay $200-$300 for... More

To be right in downtown Vancouver, walking distance to English, Bay, Stanley Park, cafes, waterfront, Canada Place, - and not pay an arm and leg - I am willing to overlook a few things. First , the lobby is not great but who spends time there, the staff at the front desk was excellent, The rooms were clean, and large... More

Well you can't expect much from a place like this but for the price - its pretty good value for Vancouver. Rooms are reasonably sizeable. The location is central and there was parking for the hire car - which is great since its almost impossible to find street parking in the area.

Location ,location, sometimes you have to overlook some things. If you had to judge this place by its lobby alone ,you'd never stay here! The suite was very large, could comfortably accommodate 6 people but it's such good value even three girls sharing is good. A well appointed kitchen and dining area means for an extended stay you wouldn't have... More

I was hesitant to stay here based on the photos. The location was wonderful, two blocks from English Bay. Both Denman and Davie had many places to eat close by. The parking was first come and was very tight, do not plan on if you have a big car. Room was comfortable, did not need the small kitchen. No air... More

One of my fatal error was not to check trip advisor to let me know how users rated this hotel prior to going to booking the place and going to Vancouver. The location is definitely great but the hotel is not. The room we stayed in had the floor air conditioner and had a tube going out of the window.... More

Service is the hotel was good, but nothing special. Very friendly staff though. Rooms weren't bad at all. It was very spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was a equipped with a stove, sink, microwave, coffee machine, crockery and cutlery, and a big fridge and freezer. Rooms could be cleaned better. We noticed the carpet wasn't cleaned...

This hotel is extremely reasonable and the location cannot be beat! Right by English Bay so an easy walk to the Granville Island ferry and all the attractions of Stanley Park. I have rarely seen as many or such a variety of restaurants as are on the neighboring streets. It would be impossible not to find something to your taste.... More
