The hotel was good it was clean, rooms were a good size, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was free it was a self service cereal, waffles, bagels, toast and a different choice of egg or sausage or bacon on various days. I would imagine something for everyone but not a massive selection but more than we expected. It was open 6am-1030... More

Great value and great location in Vancouver. This hotel is within close proximity to downtown Vancouver. It is very short walk to Main Street and Broadway Ave for lots of coffee shops and restaurants. There is a small shopping centre right next door which includes a grocery store, liquor store and Shoppers Drug Mart, everything you need right at the... More

Recently spent a weekend here with my girlfriend for a short and sweet vacation. The location is really great, as it puts you right outside downtown Vancouver but not quite in the thick of everything. I come from a smaller town so it was nice not to feel overwhelmed. It was nice also being right next to a grocery store/mall... More

Good spot for public transport w/o being in the "thick of traffic". They say continental brkfst but also have waffles, omelets &/or some type of meat/bacon, fresh fruit -apples, oranges & bananas & good coffee. The heating system blows hot or cold & is NOISY like many mid-level hotels. Bring ear plugs. The staff however are all pleasant , even,... More

We stayed for a night as we were attending a Gala downtown. The reason we stayed here is that it is a well maintained hotel, a fairly good location, and close to downtown. Also, unlike it's hotel cousins downtown, Wi-Fi and Parking DO NOT cost extra, and a FULL breakfast is included! Downtown hotels in Vancouver are, in general, a... More

Fine place to stay for a few days as it is close to my family. The rooms are small and plain, but perfectly comfortable. Will stay again. Breakfast room is much too small for the number of people using it. An older hotel with cleaning personnel and their stuff in your way at times.

i enjoyed this place, nice and clean and helpful staff. It was close to bus service. Staff were excellent in assisting with bus routes etc. I would stay here again - affordable too. I might check out another Best Western next time I am in Vancouver just to be closer to Metro town.

The hotel is not far from a sky train station and there's bus stations in front of the hotel. It's pretty good if you want to visit Burnaby sometimes by taking sky train or bus and not too far from downtown Vancouver either. Speaking of the hotel, a typical best western with free continental breakfast just a little bit disappointed... More
