Bathroom was clean but the smell in the bathroom was of a cleaning cloth that's not rinsed or washed out very often! Room was very noisy from outside from buses that stay and idle outside hotel. But it is downtown! Also hotel plumbing and noises... More

The location is perfect with of restaurants and close to English Bay. The staff is friendly; the decor is older but the room was very clean. As others have mentioned, the wifi is very temperamental. Good bus connections as well

Should I say thank you for providing the in-room Internet or complain about its frequent disconnection? As the title shows, the Internet became not available about 50% of time. Otherwise, this is a nice lower-end hotel.

I have been staying at the Sands for 10-years when travelling to Vancouver on business or for personal time. The staff are great. The rooms are clean and modern. The food is good in the bars and restaurant. The location is perfect right across from the beaches of English Bay and just a short stroll to Stanley Park. Denman and... More

This hotel has a great location. You can walk out on the beach and see the sunset, take a walk or run through Stanley Park and the sea wall. Lots of great eating places very close, able to walk most places. The building is older and a little noisy on the street side but well worth the price.

We just stayed one night here, but it was a wonderful experience. After a long flight we were very please that the staff helped us with early check in so that we could get some rest. All the staff were very friendly. Also, we had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs and it was delicious and well priced.

Older, but nicely updated rooms. Large rooms, generally friendly. I would stay here again due to excellent location. That's all I have to say and this damn survey won't let me leave till I put in 200 hundred words. I think dinosaurs were probably multicolored and not really one pale green colour, but who really knows?

This Best Western Plus is just steps away from English Bay with a Tim Horton's across the street!!! The upper floor offers partial views of the Bay. Moments away from walking around the sea wall of Stanley Park. Amazing bus access just outside your door to all the excitement downtown has to offer.
