They hotel is not Handicap friendly. There is no elevator to haul your luggage around. Don't try to plug/unplug things from the sockets or they will blow the fuse/sockets. The electrical system is outdated and most of all of the Air conditioner's do not work in the motel. We had to move from one room to the other because of... More

We unfortunately didn't know what day we'd be in town so made no reservations. Mistake. Everything we came to was full. We had 5 of us. Got their family suite for $119. Cheap but mostly desperate. No one complained about mattresses. I felt the sheets and towels were clean. I NEVER get onto carpet or showers barefoot since doctor friend... More

DO NOT STAY HERE! Two cars were broken into including ours! They have cameras that the cops said were useless. We didn't notice more than one pile of glass from previous cars being broken into that they just swept up into piles in the parking area until the morning. We were just passing through, moving to Alaska so we had... More

My mother booked this motel as a one night stay because we were only in Vancouver for the weekend. First of all, the outside of the place looks run down and shoddy, so we didn't expect much. Then, after specifically having reserved a room for three people (we ended up bringing four but we had booked the "family" suite and... More

This Motel is just fine for one night, but might not be suitable for people who are looking for a comfy bed. Our room was reasonalby big and more or less clean. The car can be parked right under the motel for free.

Folks who own this place should consider another line of business. Some staff members friendly and willing, but seems absentee management just doesn't understand what is needed in running any kind of guest service business. My bike was stolen right off the rack in back of my car.. right under the surveillance camera in the underground parking lot at about... More
