We stayed overnight at this Best Western Plus for a 2-day trip to Vancouver. This hotel seems perfect for this type of visit / getaway. It is a budget hotel, rated 3-star, and is far better on the inside than it appears from the road. Our rooms were OK - we had 2 twin beds (not queen!) and the rooms... More

Bed was awesome - soft on top, yet supportive. A variety of pillows were on the bed, so I was able to find one that suited me perfectly. I loved the location, it seemed to be right in the middle of things that interested me.

A lot of things were not good with this place: 1st we had a reservation made under a specific rate that found out later that this hotel did not participate in, so when we wanted to cancel our reservation because we would be paying more money for the room we could not , we had to go through with the...

We've stayed here a number of times because the hotel is the best value in this part of Vancouver. Check-in is easy although the parking lot (free) would be tight for larger vehicles. Staff are courteous and always offer a greeting. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Rooms not facing Kingsway are quieter but all offer good sleep. The wifi connection... More

Room was good. Breakfast OK Close to where I was taking a course. Lots of coffee shops near. Lots of construction in this area. Good grocery store across the street with a good choice of snacks and great deli.

Thankfully there was a cancellation as every hotel was booked when we changed our driving plans and ended up in Vancouver at 4am instead of 1pm. The room was very nice, the beds were so comfortable and had 4 wonderful big pillows with a fluffy duvet. The front desk staff were fabulous and very caring. We got a great price... More

Thank you for the great review. I'm sorry about the construction noise but I must mention that the construction you heard was not involving our hotel. It is the building next door and unfortunately we have no control over this. Thanks again for staying with us. Please stay with us again soon. More

The hotel was clean, comfortable, and had a very good breakfast included in the room rate. Both hot and cold food options were available. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The room was small, but clean and comfortable. The hotel was just 5k from city centre, so location was very good. My only criticism was the fitness room did not... More

Thank you for the kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. I should mention that the gym is located above another room which is why it had to open later than you had anticipated. Thank you again and we hope you choose to stay with us in the future. More

Parking was very tight. Breakfast area was too small for the number of people that were eating there in the morning. The coffee maker, Krueger, was did not work. The Staff was very helpful. The adjoining restaurant was better than expected.

Any rooms near Kingsway Ave are noisy, Try to get a room nearer the rear of the hotel for less noise and upper levels for better views of the mountains. The location is very qood for nearby shopping and dining and easy to drive downtown.

Neighborhood Profile
South Main
South Main, or SoMa, is a neighbourhood in upswing. Inhabited by young humanitarian professionals in converted lofts and studio apartments, what was once an industrial centre is now a wellspring of vintage and eco fashion shops, contemporary sawdust-floor galleries, craft beer joints, and basement acting studios. All set to an Art Deco background with a strong blue collar sensibility underpinning each new pop-up and foodie trend, SoMa is on the rise.
