“Value For Money, Friendly Staff”
Reviewed December 29, 2007

Great location for a low price. Spacious albeit dated interiors. Very adequate kitchen. Big apartment suites. Its situated right opposite the Hostelites International in a quiet and probably forgotten part of downtown Vancouver. However, almost 24 hours supermarket (Supa Value), Denny's, Starbucks, KFC, Japanese restaurants, Chinese takeout, Korean groceries and much more within a 5 minute walk from hotel. If you rent a car there is a covered carpark at the back of the hotel. Useful especially in winter. My family of four had an enjoyable time in Vancouver and the location of this hotel was helpful in accessing areas like Stanley Park, Lions Gate Bridge, and of course just being downtown. Highly recommended for value travellers.

After having spent one week at the Sunset Inn along with my husband, we having nothing but praise, both for the apartment and the staff. The apartment was well furnished, bed comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The bathroom was spotlessly clean. The bonus was the complimentary breakfast which we collected each morning from the foyer and ate in the comfort of our apartment.
We found the staff to be extremely pleasant and helpful, especially Paul and Dean. We booked all our tours at the front desk and got lots of advice on the best trips. We were able to leave some luggage there for 3 days when we took a trip to Whistler, which incidentally was wonderful.
The location of the Sunset Inn is great on a quiet street, and a lovely walk downhill brought us to English Bay. On our return from Whistler we even had an upgrade to an executive suite for one night. We had a marvellous holiday in Vancouver and found the Sunset Inn to be a great place to stay and such great value.

Stayed September 2007

After reading all the reviews on TripAdvisor we booked direct with Sunset Inn and on arrival very early in the morning (before 10am)our room was ready. Room 705 non smoking floor, great for families, huge king bed for parents and kids had their own sofa bed each. Kitchen was more than adequate to have breakfast if you did not indulge in the intercontinental breakfast provided on a single trolley in the lobby! We even cooked dinner and made sandwiches for lunch in our kitchen. All is good for this budget accommodation however staff could be a little more helpful or happy!! Note - you have to take your own bags to your room don't expect help. There is a on site laundry with washing powder free you just pay for the washing machine and dryer. Although in a quiet street parallel to Davie Street it is opposite the Youth Hostel - where revellers may wake you at 3am coming home - not a major issue. We walked everywhere from this hotel even home from GM stadium after watching our first ice hockey game. Overall, a great place for families on a budget.

My husband is a repeat visitor to this property, but for the rest of our family, it was our first time.
On the plus side, we were upgraded to an executive room, so we got to experience the best they have here at Sunset Inn. The room was quite nicely decorated for the most part (the kitchen appliances could use upgrading), and the room was very spacious (a large one bedroom). The downsides were: room is not well insulated from noise, shower either not working or too confusing to figure out (neither a good situation), the breakfast was marginal and completely self serve (so, no one to assist or explain where things are, etc.), and the front desk staff really seem uninterested and unfriendly.
Another downside was at check out, we had to take our luggage down 7 flights of stairs because the elevator stopped working. The front desk person didn't offer an apology for the inconvienience or anything! Also, parking is quite tight here....tricky to get into the lot. If you have a large vehicle, it will be a major challenge!
Overall, a great choice if you have a larger group or require a kitchen. I'd advise buying breakfast supplies and making your own.

Sunset Inn and Suites is a great place to stay. It was located on a quiet street but still within walking distance of a lot of Vancouver sights.

We booked through Quickbook and got a really good rate. The rooms are large with everything you need. King bed was comfortable and huge. The decor is not very modern but it is functional and as the week progressed we appreciated our extra space.

And, the friendly and helpful staff at the hotel were great - with none of those pesky little extra costs that other higher priced hotels charge.

The Sunset Inn and Suites is situated in a quiet street centrally in Vancouver and offers free, secure parking. The apartment we stayed in was freshly renovated and included a small but well-equipped kitchen. You'll find plenty of restaurants, a supermarket and banks just around the corner of the hotel.

The wifi connection was included in the price of the room and worked very well. Breakfast was also included, only slightly inconvenient that we had to take it back to the apartment to eat it.

Also loved the fact that they had a laundrette, so we could wash and dry some clothes (at a charge) while we were staying there.

Loved this place!

My husband and I stayed at the Sunset Inn & Suites a year ago and loved everything about this property so we booked again this year. We are in Vancouver for two nights prior to an Alaska cruise. We would certainly rate this hotel a great choice because of the friendly helpful front desk staff. We also love the location in a quiet residental area with an easy walk to Stanley Park and to the ferry landing to Granville Island. We enjoyed nice walks to the grocery story to get items to eat in our very complete and functional kitchen. When visiting Vancouver, we will always stay at the Sunset Inn and Suites.
