“Great Location, Cozy Room, Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2011

The location was great. It was within walking distance of the SkyTrain (public transit), tour bus stop (recommended by the front desk) and Canada Place cruise ship terminal. The staff was very friendly and helpful with providing tourist information about the local area. The room was rather small, but that's to be expected for the location so close to the action in any city. The bathroom was functional, but the sink was on a pedestal and had very little counter space. With 4 adults, there was very little room for storage. The included breakfast was good and included many grains like danishes, breads, and waffles, but could use more fruits to round out the selection. Our room was on the 2nd floor and facing Granville street, but the noise from the street never disturbed us. The included Wifi was very convenient since our 3G service on our cell phones didn't work (we are from Long Island, NY, USA), so the hotel was the only place to get an internet connection.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up probably have less street noise. The hotel is not that large, so rooms at the end o...

we usually stay at either comfort, days or best westerns b/c we can count on the consistency of clean, well appointed rooms and usually an included breakfast. However, this comfort inn, although the room was clean, the staff extremely helpful and friendly, the breakfast more than satisfactory, did not meet up to those standards. the room was on the small side, although it did have a very comfortable bed, and the bathroom did have a spa tub. Having just gotten off a ship from a cruise, the slanting floor of the room made us feel as though we were still at sea. When we closed one drawer of the bureau, another would slide open - comedy show! The walls need a paint job and if you are a light sleeper, the sounds rising from the pub downstairs may keep you up (we were on the 4th floor and still able to hear). the location is convenient for good walks and to the bus stops. The price is on the high side for a comfort inn, but compared to others in the area, it is most reasonable.

Room Tip: ask for one not facing the pub

The hotel is located right in the middle of the downtown core. The staff were nice and helpful and the facilities on site were great. The rooms were small, but clean and cozy. The breakfast included in the package was pretty basic though, wish they had a better spread. But the best part was being able to walk to anywhere within downtown.

This hotel is in a great location on Granville Street with close access to public transport. bus stops & train stations are within 3-4 minutes walk.

The hotel accommodation was small, but clean and tidy. It had an iron & board, Big TV & free wifi Internet connection.

Breakfast is in the pub next door. During breakfast the pub is only open to hotel residents and you need to give in your voucher which you will be given when you check in. We were disappointed with breakfast as the only healthy option was an apple or orange. If you like waffles, bagels or toast then you'll be ok!

The reception staff were very helpful and knowledgable. We had no issues calling a cab at 5am!

Room Tip: The hotel is in a busy area on Granville so ask for a room at the back of the hotel and up as high a...

I stayed here for two nights over Labor Day weekend.

First of all, the location is great. There are a ton of shops and places to eat within walking distance. I assume this only happens on the weekend, but Granville Street gets blocked off and it becomes one large party since there are a bunch of clubs and bars nearby.

The room itself is standard. The sheets are clean and the bathroom is roomy. The room itself is kind of short though, not leaving much space between the wall and the bed. It can get noisy at night but make sure to close your windows and it's not too bad. I think the noise within the hotel is worse since the walls are on the thin side. I did appreciate the heavy curtain on the window that kept the room dark in the morning.

It comes with a basic continental breakfast and parking is available just outside the hotel for a fee. There is a computer in the lobby that is free for guests to use. The rate is decently priced, but due to taxes, it gets hiked up quite a bit.

Overall, I would stay again.

go stay at The Sheraton just up the street. It is a much nicer hotel and not on such a noisy, dirty corner. You can tell they tried to fix up the rooms and they were really small but okay to put your head down for one night. They have key entry in the elevator but the stairs are right beside it so what's the point? The sales manager I talked to said we would get "full comp'd breakfast" but it was a continental breakfast. FULL breakfast means you get to order a hot meal, not cold hard boiled eggs and make yourself waffles! The front facade and lobby are badly in need of a facelift. Doolin's Pub downstairs gets really noisy at night as does Granville. Would I stay here again...nope...for $200. I can find a much nicer hotel.

This hotel was very good value, although slightly older in style it was very clean and comfortable. The hotel is very conveniently located and I was very impressed with the breakfast spread which also allowed you to make your own waffles.
