Ok it is in a great location, thus ends the positive feedback. The room was a decent size but everything felt unclean. Our kitchen had hairs in the drawer, the refrigerator was so iced up I couldn't believe it would work, the glasses in the cupboard had smears all over them, the plates were not clean, the bathroom had hairs...

Our family arrived in Vancouver and stayed in this hotel for 5 nights, the room is for 5 people and have a view of Denman st and sea shore though it is on first floor. The location is close to downtown, Stanley Park. There are many restaurants and supermarket nearby, also bus/tram station are just around the corner. The room... More

Great location. BUT it's old, worn out, dirty, couldn't care less management and looks like it's straight out of downtown Kowloon with dozens of instructions notices on walls everywhere, cleaning items in the hallway and stuff laying around everywhere. I booked this cause we're on a two month holiday and need to stick to a budget. My wife has suspended... More

Location is <1 min walk from English Bay Beach. The hotel itself is run down and could really use some renovations. No A/C but there were two fans that kept the room cool. The room I had was overlooking the Beach on Denman St. It's a busy street so there will be a lot of noise from people, buses, traffic... More

The room is not expensive, but we got a really big room with a double bed and a single bed, a kitchen and a dinning table. We can see English bay through the window in our room, i believed that's why they called English Bay Hotel. There is coffee in the lobby. Generally, it's much better than I thought. But... More

The concierge at this hotel was super rude, racist and may have snooped around in my room. I was here on an academic conference and I am Phd student so this was the place I could afford. It is an extremely run down place but I didn't have much option. One evening I was heading out to meet a prospective... More

Well, what can I say. I've stayed in some amazing 1, 2 or 3 star hotels in my time. Unfortunately this was not one of them.. I'll start with the Positive as it makes me feel better about the $ I parted with. The room was clean enough, spacious, and all in all it did the Job. ie there was... More

The views maybe nice but some of the house cleaning staff were very rude! Along with that the place is very outdated and the floors are filthy!! The layout is nice but update everything from the kitchen to the furniture in there and make the wifi signal a lot stronger! Would I stay in this place again?? Only if I... More

Customer service was horrible, room was NOT cleaned properly for the whole duration. Only one cleaner for the entire building! We had to talk to her twice to get her to change the towels and make the beds. Forget getting her to vacuum, impossible. Toothpicks on the floor, dirty dishes (poor washing job),
