Booked in at advertised $110 per night, and realized after clicking that the non-refundable rate was quoted in US funds. That would have been fine if the room had been more than a bed, but that was all it was. The TV had no guide to the channels; there was no phone book; no coffee maker (coffee only in the...

The room appears to be recently upgraded in the main room. It looked very nice at first glance, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. However the building needs maintenance and upgrades. The sliding door to the patio was placed in backwards and not able to open, but didn't close 100 percent either. And being an older building it...

Guess thats how it qualifies: it is ok. Do not expect luxury, it is basic. The room I got was quite spacious, along the traffic side but this wasn't much of an issue. I had to visit downtown vancouver frequently, and fortunately the Rupert skytrain station is near which is convenient. Unfortunately, I think the place is rather expensive for...

The non-smoking hotel reaked of smoke. The wifi was abysmal. The bedding was burnt. The AC was nearly nonfunctional. To top that all off, there were kids selling drugs and prostituting themselves out of this hotel. It was so bad and they were so loud I had to leave in the middle of the night. This is not a safe...

The room looks okay at first glance but after you really look around you see the filth. The floors were sticky, there was a crusty white stain on the side table next to the bed. There were sticky rings on the dresser, and the facecloth was stained. My husband found the alarmed security doors unlocked and open last night. He...

Only hotel with a room available for this night. Facilities are run-down. Location is terrible. Room was old and dirty. Bed and pillows felt like they were last replaced in 1973. Tub and shower were definitely the before picture of a C.L.R. commercial. Glasses were wrapped but not washed. No security lock on the door. Worst of all: the deep,...

“Try to book on the side with no traffic otherwise you'll be more sorry than the usual 'sorry'....either way....you'll be sorry.”
  • Delightful walls and cable
  • The floors...so unique with characteristic markings.
  • Kitchenette.
  • Vintage TV that was working 'most' of the time.
  • The walls. Basically all the same. Holes, patches.
  • Rooms were always patched with some bad work.
  • Bathroom.
  • Room.
