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

I stayed here for 1 night when I needed to stay overnight in North Vancouver and only needed a cheap clean place to sleep. The room I had was clean, and basic, nothing fancy. 2 queen beds, a table, TV, and fridge and basic usual's towels, soap shampoo. The motel appears older and doesn't appear to have been renovated anytime... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Grouse Inn. The hotels' website pictures were a little misleading but for the price we payed, we were still very happy with our stay. The continental breakfast was outstanding; cereal, waffles, pastries, granola, hard boiled eggs, variety of juices and coffees. The beds were comfortable and the rooms smelled wonderful.

Suite was spacious, breakfast fine, more than met our needs. We booked one bedroom suite, there was no bedroom, no door to separate, fine for us as we were travelling with our adult daughter but may be a problem in some circumstances. Suite was skittle dark but clean. Sofa bed not great to sleep on.

Vancouver, we discovered, has become quite pricy compared to our first visit some 35 years ago. Searching for a less expensive alternative to downtown accommodations, we settled on the Grouse Inn in North Vancouver, which is separated from Vancouver proper by the Lions Gate Bridge. The Inn's web site, as per usual, has impressive color photographs that promise something a... More

We only chose this hotel as it was close to the Capilano Suspension Bridge and we only wanted to stay one night. Check in was quite quick. It didn’t look too bad from the outside and the hanging baskets were lovely. The room was a bit dismal. There were not enough sockets for chargers etc. Breakfast was the worst of... More

We were too tired by the time we got there to use any of the amenities they offered except for the breakfast which was more than adequate. It was appealing for the price $71 and it was only one mile from Capilano Bridge Park, our destination.

The hotel is older, but is adequate. The hotel is located in a major traffic area, so it is a little difficult to get in and out. It is near the Lions Gate Bridge, so it makes it easy to get into Vancouver without paying Vancouver hotel prices. The king room had table and chairs, a fridge, thermostat controlled HVAC.... More

When my husband, son & I stayed there it was barely adequate for the price. It is in dire need of updates. I didn't eat the breakfast just drank the coffee. Choice is limited for hotels in N Van but I don't think we will stay there again, mostly because of my daughters experience a few weeks later. She said... More
