“Little space in room.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

My wife and I stayed at the City Centre Motor Hotel for 5 nights. We had a twin double bed room. There was very little space around the beds. Poorly furnished. Good Bathroom. No breakfast facilities except coffe in the lobby in the morning. WiFi OK. Free parking. Clean. Good connection to the town.

That is not a criticism however. If you need a very convenient, very clean, perfectly nice motel that has a very good location and very close to public transportation then this is it. If you do not need all of the bells and whistles of a modern motel, which for me means a hd tv and swipe card instead of an actual key then there is nothing wrong with this place. At $80 a night walking up with free parking this is a great deal.

This area of Vancouver is probably not the easiest for travelers who are not used to big cities, but if you keep your city wits about you, the area is fine. This motel is very close to the main bus/amtrak/translink stations (less then 1k) and 2-3 blocks from good Indian and Chinese food (Congee House was great). The motel itself is a slightly rundown, dingy place, but seemingly clean enough to me. I did find my room received more artificial light at night than I expected and that the wifi was fairly sketchy.

I would say it was an unpleasant experience. Four of us in two rooms stayed one night. They charged us $88 per room per night. Rooms and baths room were small. But the size was okay. Bathroom bowl seat was dirty with a dirty brown patch which I cleaned with a wet toilet paper although it was wrapped with the seal to say it was cleaned and sanitized. Obviously the bowl had not been cleaned. Around the tub, the grout repairing work was poorly unprofessionally done. There were NO bath towels in both rooms, only few small towels. Honestly there were two small round soap pieces made in China. NO shampoo. Could not open the wrap of the soap, finally when opened it was poor quality, like wax. No soap bubbles when used. I went back to office at 12 midnight to get some soap. They gave me another similar looking soap and said it was a better quality. The furniture in the room looked dirty, scratched and old. The front desk person was polite. In the morning there was a different person on duty at the front desk and when he heard our complaints, he said that we could have asked for bath towels from the office. WHAT does that mean??? From the shower one should come to their office to ask for towels, shampoo and soap?
To be successful, the location alone will not help. Try to give a great service to customers.

Room Tip: I would not stay here again.

Interesting stuff happening in this part of town, plus this was one of the cheapest rooms we could find, and reasonably well located. Lots of action and strange people in and around the building at all hours. My friends' rooms were not all in amazing condition, but I was in one of the "renovated" rooms on the 2nd floor of the north unit, which was perfectly clean (no bedbugs) and well maintained. Very spare amenity. BYOShampoo!
