This hotel is located on the main party street in downtown Vancouver so please go in with the knowledge that it is not a quiet area on a Friday/Saturday night but our room was located facing the street and with the air conditioner on the street noise was kept to a minimum. Also beware there is a night club on... More

This hotel works--the rooms are clean, there's cable and free wifi, the location can't be beat. But the rooms (at least with the queen size bed) are tiny, the outlets can't hold our plugs (they just fall out unless we prop them up) plus there's only two of them that we can reach (under the desk and in the bathroom)....

I had an appointment at St Paul's hospital and needed to be thrifty. But not thrift enough for Hastings St. I chose this hotel to the short 3 block walk to the hospital and was pleased with my choice. The rooms are clean but average and older decor. That's ok. I was there for other reasons. Parking was great, although... More

I would never return but I wasn't totally disappointed in my stay. I had a cute room at the end of the hall, so it was quiet. But they were renovating the restaurant, which was why I wanted to stay there in the first place. I was not told of this when I booked the hotel, but a few days... More

Dear Ismena-bee, Thank you very much for staying with us and thank you for your review. Once again apologies for the inconvinience our restaurant has caused you, renovations took longer than expected and that resulted in us compensating you and giving you gift card to Tim Hortons. None of our standard rooms have fridges, however we do have suites that... More

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

Dear Thebreezieone, Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us. I'm very confused by your comments, you did not book directly with us, you have booked with Expedia.com, please check your e-mail or visa statement, so you will know that I'm telling you the truth. Also, when you make a reservation, there is this window where... 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

Dear Laulau9, Thank you for your review and thank you for your business. I guess you have experienced Vancouver at the height of all summer madness, usually hotel rooms are more affordable. Glad to hear you liked our location and found our rooms to be clean and comfortable. Thank you for your business. More
