This hotel was run down. Everything in the room was old, worn and in need up replacement. That said, it was relatively cheap compared to other hotels in Vancouver. It was also in a great location, near Stanley Park and the West Side. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. We checked out at 9am and they kept our bags for... More

Rude staff, dirty rooms, bad smell in rooms, no lobby it's not worth the money you pay at all i will never get back to this place and never ever recommend to anyone. We stayed there for one night, we came from another hotel in vicinity. I went there to reserve room in person, resection staff were rude and not... More

Location is great right at English bay. Rooms were clean and beds were comfortable and we could even see the sky lit up for sunset over English bay from our room. The room we got had a little kitchen too.

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
