“Vancouver's Best Kept Secret for Best Budget Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

I actually live in Vancouver and needed a 3 day getaway to work on some papers for grad school. My mother has stayed here several times when visiting and loves it. I stayed there at the end of February. I almost am afraid to let people know about it because the prices are so great! The staff is friendly, the apartments are an excellent size (larger than most Vancouver apartments) and you cannot beat the location. 1 block to the beach, 1 block to the shops on Davie and Denman streets. Yes, it is not fancy, very simple accommodations but it is the perfect home away from home.

We have been to Oceanside Hotel several times usually, in August or September. We get a one bedroom flat which is very clean and pleased to say serviced daily. The management at the front desk is exceptionally helpful. As the kitchen is well equipped we tend to eat in sometimes. The location is amazing just a few hundred yards to the beach. There are many restaurants around the corner. After our usual jet lag it is nice to know that there are clean and comfortable beds which help our sleep. We are looking forward to going again next year!

Room Tip: Try and get a corner suite - well worth it

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights recently on a trip from Alberta and thought it was wonderful. The large one bedrom suite was very clean and comfortable. Staff was very friendly. The location is superb near beach and surrounded by dozens of different type restaurants.. The hotel is within walking distance to Stanley park and city centre.
We did not have to pay for parking which was a plus..

Will stay here again for sure.

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.
