My husband and I travel a lot and usually use B&Bs. This time we figured a budget hotel would be okay for one night. Wow. What a mistake. The building is rundown with paper-thin walls....(literally could hear the guy upstairs using washroom at 4 a.m.). I went to turn the duvet down and there were 2 large brown dried blood... More

Please read carefully the latest reviews of the Grouse Inn or what is now renamed the Gross Inn. I booked in January and the reviews back then were ok. We were supposed to be staying for 2 nights at the very end of our trip but felt disappointed on arrival. The online photos don't show a true reflection of the... More

We reserved this motel about a month ago and even arrived early to the place, but got the farthest room in the outside court close to the main road and noise. We felt like 3rd rate customers being discarded. In the room, the sink was damaged in several places, the large towel was old and torn on the edges and... More

I'm telling you right now, do not even consider wasting your time or money here! This is going to be a long review, but I really suggest you read it!! My mom and I stayed here because it was close to many activities we were interested in, and it was only a bus ride to down town. The reviews were... More

Check in clerk was rude and very unhelpful, not a pleasant check in due to the strong smell of urine in the main office. If this wasn't the only hotel available this past weekend, there is NO way we would have checked in. upon first impression the rooms seemed pleasant enough. I was not impressed with the smell in my... More

I booked a suite and a room for myself and 5 of my children while we were attending an event in downtown Vancouver. I didn't know what to expect because the rates were so low and included a free buffet breakfast and free parking. I was pleasantly surprised to find that although the rooms are definitely dated, they are in... More

This motel is very old and dated BUT the price is reasonable and location convenient. Continental breakfast is not bad and the room was basically clean. Most front desk people here are not friendly and maid service not great. They made our bed and left clean towels but didn't give us more coffee or coffee cups. We had a kitchenette... More
