“Great location, great staff, great value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Only a 2 minute walk from English Bay and Stanley park and lots of restaurants and shopping on Denman, Davie and Robson streets.

The 3-storey building seems to be converted from normal 2-room apartments, meaning it has a normal kitchen, not just a kitchenette and having a kitchen was really practical. The hotel is also a bit worn, but our room was large (especially compared to a similar hotel in the neighbourhood).

Free wi-fi and free parking were very nice to have.
No elevator, so not good if you're in a wheel chair or have lots of heavy luggage.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and I would definitely stay there again - preferably every year ;-)

Hotels in this city are expensive. Ones close to Stanley Park are also expensive. This is probably the least expensive near the park. Somewhat dated, but reasonably clean, and an excellent location. Has full kitchen! Pretty sweet!

Room Tip: Room in front may be quieter than in back.

We were visiting Vancouver last week for a wedding and found this gem in the west end. Oceanside is close to the ocean, Stanley park, shopping and lots of eatimg houses.
We found the suites to be very clean and comfortable. The staff was very friendly. Surprisingly the hotel does not charge for parking and they also have free wireless internet in all suites.
Will most deffinately go back and would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Vancouver.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner non smoking suite

Excellent location is all this hotel had going for it. It was very dirty and in disrepair. There was no elevator and we were sent to the third floor. The Management tried to be helpful and help us bring up our luggage. There was also no airconditioning and the bed was very uncomfortable. The room also smelled of smoke and had a multitude of burns in the carpet. They truly had a lot of nerve charging over $171.00 a night for this very small one bedroom efficiency.

We stayed at the Oceanside for 2 nights and found it to be an excellent place to stay for someone wanting to get something of everything..
Good safe location, near beach, Stanley park, dozens of restaurants, shopping, nightlife etc.
The suites were spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds were good, and the staff was very friendly. The only downtown hotel I know that offers free parking. It also offered free high speed wireless internet in all suites.
Will deffinately recommend this place to anyone.

Hello, I stayed 4 days in Vancouver at Oceanside hotel. We had a flat with kitchen. The flat was big but quite old with the bathroom really old. Sink was not working and we had to call maintenance. Anyway the position is excellent . 40 meters really from beach and maybe 200 meters form Stanley park. Close to a bus stop of tourist tours and town bus stops. Unfortunately they were not cleaning the rooms at all. Only collecting garbage and changing a couple of towels and 1 day even not doing this.
Only service available was wireless.

The reviews for this place seemed good and the price was right but omg?!!
Bad: No elevator, no air conditioning, room smelled of stale cigarette smoke, linen was stained, rugs were stained, bathroom falling apart, cleanliness questionable, no screens on the windows, parking horrible (free parking is a SMALL lot with only six spots)
Good: location (a block from English Bay) and around corner from delicious fatburger, free wifi works consistently, kitchen well stocked and it's cheap.
