Although the decor is dated, the hotel is clean, the staff are friendly and efficient and the location is excellent. It is close to the beach, many restaurants, Stanley Park and the transit stops outside the door. It is easy driving to many other attractions.

Good hotel, great staff, excellent location for a Vancouver visit. We made the reservation for another Best Western hotel through Cancelon; big mistake. Cancelon gave me a confirmation and charged my credit card, but did not book the room. The Best Western staff worked to get me a room.

We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It had great access to the English Bay and Stanley Park. It was close to several unique restaurants and shopping. The service and staff at the hotel were great. If you are looking for a reasonably priced place to stay and not looking for fancy, this is a great hotel. The hotel restaurant... More

This hotel is across from the beach and near Stanley park. Restaurants are walkable as is everything else. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel. Staff were very accommodating when we needed them to hold our bags for a few hours before we could check-in.

The rooms are your standard best western room, ours had AC. The shower sucked, it kept randomly changing temperature while we were showering, I actually got scalded and had to jump out mid shower. The onsite restaurant/pub is really good and fairly priced, we went for breakfast twice. The location is great, a half block from the water, and right... More

It does not matter about pricing or amenities, this is the best place to be. The hotel and rooms are nothing special but the location is. One block from Stanley Park and one block from the Bay where everyone gathers like Key West to see sunsets. There was also a restaurant right on the beach which was top quality. We... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights after our cruise. The location is perfect for walking to restaurants, the beach, ferries to Granville Island and more. The staff is friendly and helpful and worked with us to find the best places to eat and ways to walk where we needed. We did appreciate the security offered by the swiping... More

The BW Sands is located in the west end of Vancouver on Davie street- a stones throw from the ocean! Amazing location - perfect for a quick getaway. Everything you need is close by. Park your car and walk! Good value for your money!

We stayed here for three nights and thought the location was perfect. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We had a room overlooking English Bay and although there was some street noise it did not stop us from sleeping at all. As a security measure you have to use your key card to use the lift, but I wish there... More

Check-in staff are friendly and the building is well secured you would need to swipe your key card to operate the elevator which I find a great ''plus'' the room that we got at the first floor was a very descent size, the only bad thing about this room location was facing the back alley and a potential ''break-in'' by...
