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.

Upon entry to the reception it smelt really stuffy/ unclean & smokey!!!! I... More

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

Clean,spacious room with a nice kitchenette. Unique decor made it fun and enjoyable. Very good price made up for the older bathroom...Not luxurious but a close walk to restaurants and train. Very friendly staff.Would recc[mend The Palms to someone on a fun adventure trip.

I booked the Palms after looking at the Website and phoning - they seemed friendly and offered a 3 queen bed room for a very good price so we thought we would take a chance. Unfortunately when we got there it was smelly, run down, manned by asian staff who spoke little english - altogether a disaster. They also didn't... More
