The hotel lobby looks like an old Las Vegas strip joint, my room smelled bad as soon as I unlocked the door, and the whole building is very run down. I had to wash the bathroom & kitchenette floors before I would take my shoes off. There was hair all over the bathroom, yellow spots on the walls and mud... More

Unfortunately we booked on "no car" day and several blocks of Denman Street were blocked off. A hotel that cared about customer service would have let us know this at the time of booking but nonetheless we found our way to the back alley where we were faced with one of the most terrifying entrances to a parking garage I...

The location can't be beat - except perhaps by the Sylvia which is - and the price is certainly good, but everything else about this hotel is horrible. The 'quiet' rooms at the back look out over a roof littered with needles and trash and the front rooms are very noisy. Both hallways and rooms have an unbelievably bad smell,... More

Our first experience was with the front desk clerk who did the job of getting us checked in, but was a little short and somewhat persnickety. The parking garage entrance is very narrow, and there are lots of old bathtubs, desks, dressers, and other dilapidated furniture both in the garage itself and crammed against the walls of the corridor between...

Old hotel, furniture, and room, but everyday linen change and room maintenance was good. If one wants to utilizes the kitchen most, this hotel is a good choice. The location is at key point, just a hop from the big Stanley park and just across the road is the English Bay. Big shopping places nearby. Groceries and many type of... More

The room was big with a small kitchen, but with a lot of old furniture, smelly, dark carpet, not clean enough, bustling noyse, dark room. We... More

Its location was convinient to access shopping areas and the park. So if you move around the North and south of the city this hotel was good but if you stay at the hotel for a long time. The hotel was old not so good but the space of the room was huge and small kitchen and refrigerator were equiped... More

Disappointing hotel, rooms not clean, the staff is not welcoming, bustling noisy location, small hotel, more like a cheap motel, does not fit the definition that appears in advertising (3 star), recommends to stop marketing it on the Internet. There is no lobby has a kind of a room with a reception desk, there is a difficulty upon arrival by... More

We're a group of friend of 5 staying there during Aug 2nd weekend. The room has 3 beds and kitchen with microwave and refrigerator.

The location is perfect, walking distanct to almost all major parts of Vancouver... More
