I really like this hotel. The rooms are all updated and cozy. I love the decore and all the extra touches and things they give you in the room to use. When we walked in the room it smelled so good on the inside. The staff here is really nice. The only reason I gave a four is because the... More

I booked this room online about 2 hours before arrival 4/18/15, before we crossed the Canada border and lost cell service. Paid for the room, credit card charged. When we arrived, which we marked on the reservation we were unsure of arrival ( no gps... We thought we might just get lost.) they told us they had no rooms available,... More

All in all, I have no complaints about the Sands -- the service was great, my room was clean and the location is excellent. This is a typical older Best Western property. It's obviously been updated over the years, but there's some evidence that this is an older building from the elevators to the in-room bathrooms (older tile and some... More

Fantastic hotel. Staff are very informative, The Bayside Lounge is fantastic with great food and an ever better view, and the rooms are great value. Lots of menu choices and walking distance to anything you need to do. A+

When we can my husband and I like to get away to Van for a weekend and we always stay at the Sands. The staff are friendly with great pubs and restaurants located within the hotel and many other coffee shops and restaurants near by. The hotel is clean and we've never had a problem here. The location is amazing... More

Had a great week at the Best Western Plus on Davie street. Nice central location to the sites. Great little restaurant/bar. Good clean accommodation at a great price. Friendly and informative staff for transportation and sites to see.

Lovely big room, it was very clean and had great service from the front desk! The hotel is right down in the bay!!!! Had a excellent beet salad and drinks in the restaurant facing the bay!! Polite staff and had a lovely experience. They even suggested renting bikes right across the street!!!

Nice big room (very small bathroom though!) which was very clean. Great location for Stanley park and a waterfront view. Only 20 minute walk away from Granville street etc. Polite staff and experienced two nice breakfasts at the restaurant!

If you stay at this place, be sure to stay at the end of the building away from the water as there is a karaoke lounge right next door and you can hear word for word. I would never stay here again because I value sleep and good music. There are definitely other hotels in the area not next to... More

Stayed here for a trade show. They put us on the 4th floor, room 406. Facing Davie Street, it was so noisy, I swear I could hear individual conversations on the street 4 floors below. Windows are only single pane which look like they have been there since the hotel was built which I am fairly certain was why it... More
