We visited in 2011 with bunch of friends. Stay was comfortable. Location was ok. No complaints. Rooms were completely renovated at that time and were comfortable. Parking and breakfast were included. Will definitely recommend to those on a budget.

room was small but adequate; for the price i would have expected 2 beds for 2 people, even single beds would have done; difficult to cool down the room on those hot nights (my sister and I spent 2 nights there-Aug 8 and 16; did not supply face towels which I would expect anywhere: when I asked, they said it...

The room itself was clean and spacious, and the staff were super friendly and helpful. However, the air conditioner didn't work well and the pillows were extremely old/lumpy/uncomfortable, which made for a sleepless night. Also, this hotel is in the middle of the entertainment district, so you will hear loud music and partiers until about 4 a.m. - while there... More

We traveled from Ottawa Ontario Canada mid July 2015. As soon as we checked in the hotel there was an overwhelming odor like someone was trying to drown cat piss and mildew with Lysol. The hotel was really outdated with orange and green carpets and orange walls. We arrived with a lot of luggage and were clearly overwhelmed trying to... More

If you're looking for a no-frills, simple hotel, in a great location, than this is ideal. Our room was on the third floor and didn't face Granville Street, so we didn't experience the noise issues others have mentioned. Overall, our room was okay. We had two big complaints, but didn't have the time or interest to communicate them - also... More

The Front desk and the location saves this hotel, but room size, air conditioner, cleanliness and neighborhood are a real drawback which lets you think twice, depending with whom you travel. Young couples who want to explore the city: no problem at all. Families with smaller kids: not recommendable.

The bed was slanted about 4 inches from one side to the other. Caused one of us to roll into the other all night. Bathroom was clean. Glad it was only one night though as the neighbourhood is a bit scary.

The hotel was fairly nice. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room was small! so was bathroom. Parking conveient but we stayed Friday night and when the bars closed at 3am there was a fight in the parking lot right under our 1st floor window. Also our motorcycle was urinated and puked on. Won't stay here again.

I did not book this hotel, my workplace did from a distance and did they best they could on short notice. Unfortunately while the downtown/Yaletown address looks nice, it's located on a part of Granville street that's not so nice. The person I was travelling with was afraid to go outside unless it was daytime. There are nearby nice areas... More
