“Great location and price for the Moda!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stayed here for five days because we found a great hotel+flight deal, this place was better than expected. The location is in walking distance to everything!!! There's a starbucks on one end, a Tim Hortons on the other, city centre is a few blocks up, and you can catch buses and cabs nearby. As for the room itself, it's a small cozy tv with a small bathroom. As others have said before, the walls are a bit thin and you are on a busy street. If you are one of those who needs complete silence to sleep, probably not the place for you. It's attached to a bar next door that serves some pretty unique drinks. Some of their cocktails have raw egg in them. Internet works perfectly fine here, in the room and in the business center. No problems printing boarding passes and directions to places. Finally, staff was great and helpful. Elevator was old and slow, so keep that in mind as well.

Moda has aspirations to be a boutique hotel, and succeeds partially, but either due to lack of funds or choice of building doesn't get there 100%. The staff are super-friendly & helpful, the beds very comfortable, the rooms a good size and well equipped - all in all it is a good package. However, the walls are a bit thin, and you can hear the plumbing.
Excellent bars and restaurants available onsite - they have all won awards over the years.

I have stayed at the Moda several times now. Generally something happens each visit but the staff are very good about fixing it or adjusting your rate. I love the history of this old building and the location. Plus you can come and go as you please and not deal with stuffy hotel staff. The rooms are small but functional. It could definitely up its game a bit, but then it wouldn't be the Moda- lol!

Room Tip: Ear plugs and your own pillow are good options. Also - pack light as you have to park a bit of a way...

The Moda Hotel has an excellent location and a fine restaurant and provides a good value. In particular, I'm happy to report that when I had an issue with my hotel room the first night the staff provided me and my wife with a new and larger room and comped the first night to boot, which I wasn't expecting. As a small business owner myself, this to me is the mark of a well-trained staff and a business that is focused on its reputation and its customers' experience.

Although our first room was small and lacking in some basic amenities, the one we were given was spacious and attractive, including the bathroom. So you might want to inquire when making reservations about room size. The only other issue to raise involves the style of the hotel, which is more along "boutique" lines. If you're the sort of traveler who needs the grand lobby and lots of services this is not the place for you.

Room Tip: Inquire about room size when making reservations. The small rooms are really small and not terribly...

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night back in March and enjoyed the location of this hotel in the city, close to shops and a great dog park just down the block.

Staff were very helpful and the decor in the bedroom itself was fine although the bathroom was small and was in need of a touch up.

Only point - as a pet friendly hotel it would be great to offer a pet amenity - even if it's just a dog treat and a poop bag.

However, I would stay at this property again.

We tried the Moda as a reasonably-priced choice. It's an old building and not everything has been updated, but the important things were fine. Bed was a bit hard for my taste, but the place was clean and did NOT have that nasty "hotel sanitizer" smell. Wifi was good enough. The shower was very weak but the bathroom had space for two people's stuff. The air conditioner was odd but worked well enough (and had no rattles or weird noises). Our room was an inside corner on the back, so fairly quiet. We also appreciated the nice touches, like real glasses, extra towel space, double windows added for sound, roller blinds. And the staff was universally pleasant and helpful! Better than many places I've stayed in NYC for twice the price. Judging by some other reviews, I guess some rooms are better than others...

We stayed here for three nights on arrival in Vancouver. Room was small, but clean and nicely decorated. As with all city centre hotels it was noisy with the windows open, so the aircon was much appreciated! Staff very friendly and helpful. We were even given free tickets to a live music venue down the road called Fanclub which was a great night out and highly recommended.
