Given the price and photos I saw online, I wasn't expecting much, and Howard Johnson delivered. Room was small, and would have been cramped for more than one person. However, the staff kept it clean, and it was quiet, maybe because I was staying during the week. Good location, within walking distance of Chinatown, Gastown and even Stanley Park, though... More

I am writing this review from my room of this hotel as can't believe how we have been treated on this stay. Booked direct on phone with HJ to ensure they had cots for our one and two year old. Also added my friends name to the booking to ensure we could check in at different times. Arrived at 8pm... More

Not fancy but clean. Had everything that we needed for a quick one night stay, we have previously booked the next 3 nights at a more expensive hotel but they didn't have a room for this one night. Tv is old, bathroom is older but in good repair and clean. Towels and sheets look fresh out of the package clean.... More

Hotels in Vancouver are out of control expensive, so we figured when we found something at a semi-reasonable price it wouldn't be great. The location was excellent- we walked to Granville Island, we were a 5 minute drive away from Kits, we walked down to Yaletown and shopping. Free wi-fi, no secure parking. A/C worked well! Train to airport is... More

That the parking lot is very small and by the time we checked in there were no parking spots left, leaving us to park and then walk... More

This hotel left me a little disappointed. Not the best area to stay if your on your own or with young family! Granville can be noisy till all hours with typical city happenings on the doorstep. The room was a little small and stuffy and the hotel itself was in need of an update. Staff were helpful and polite. If... More

This hotel is average quality, however, the hotel staff is extremely helpful with your needs & suggestions/directions to sightseeing, restaurant recommendations, etc. And, the location is excellent for accessing just about anything you need to get to, as well as public transportation if you need it.
