I stayed in this hotel during the Olympic games and paid a very high price for what it was...but then again all hotels were priced obscenely during the games. It is a nicely renovated older apartment block. Don't be fooled by the old cheesy sign, it is moderately renovated for the most part. No elevator. It could be a very... More

The Sylvia Hotel (the one I normally stay at when I come into town) was fully booked for last weekend and referred me to Oceanside Hotel on Pendrell. I came into town a couple of weeks prior to look into it and make a reservation. I was 'guaranteed' Room 4 which had two beds (which I needed).....I was bringing in... More

We have apologized and have indicated that we would provide a complimentary night's stay during her next visit. We will ensure all staff is aware of the... More

We checked into the hotel on 12/5/09@ 11pm.The 2 bed rooms apt we had was on the 4th level of the building. Imagine our horrors when told we needed to lug all our luggages to the room ourselves and there was NO elevator! We were from Singapore visiting Vancover for 20days with 7 days on the Alaskan cruise and 4... More

I liked this hotel, so I'll get the complaints out of the way first. They use an old fashioned key system, which doesn't seem very secure. A guest could stay for one night, go get a copy of the key made, then return days after they checked out and rob the current occupant of the room (or worse). Also the... More

Just got back from Vancouver and we stayed at the Oceanside for a week. The location is perfect - one a quiet street one block from the corner of Denman and Davie so you're close to loads of shops and restaurants and there are several regular bus routes. The staff, especially Sam on the desk, were really friendly and helpful.... More

Hotel was in great location. Very safe part of vancouver and quieter area. close to shops etc but still in walking distance of stanley park and Robson. We stayed further downtown later and this area was much nicer/less homeless/quieter area. The rooms were nice and big. The couch was hard to pull out at first but eventually figured it out.... More

We booked this hotel for our one day/night in Vancouver. The price was pretty good considering the location. On the hotels.com website, it indicated that we would be getting a bedroom area with a queen bed and a living room area with a sofa bed, in addition, also kitchenette with microwave. Upon check-in, we were told that there are some... More

During our visit to Vancouver we stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Several items were very strange: Room not ready at 5pm when we wanted to check in. Keys to doors are still the old fashioned way, no cards. We were asked if we wanted to have room service, we asked for clean towels and this never happened. Parking... More

This is not a fancy chain but a small privately owned establishment. Rooms are basic but large. Apparently they will be updating rooms in 2008, which is nice since when we visited, the beds weren't the most luxurious. Great rooms for the price and location. Steps to the beach and Stanley Park, right in the middle of the Davie St... More

We stayed at the Oceanside Hotel in August 2008 for a week. The hotel has an excellent location, close to restaurants on Denman and the walking distance to Stanley park and the beach. A few positives about this hotel. The price is very good for similar apartment-style hotels in the area ($150 a night). Parking is free which is unusual... More
