“A good stay if visiting Vancouver but not easy to find!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

I stayed two nights at the Abercorn and it was a good experience. The only minus points were that the rooms were below average in size and that the cost was quite high. I wanted a king room on the 1st floor but kings are only on the 2nd floor ( they may be larger ) so I had a two queen room on the first floor.
The room had a small work table, flat screen tv. The beds were good and there was a larger than average bath. There is a restaurant and room service which are good. A buffet hot breakfast is included in the room price and was excellent. Ample parking but not to the room.
I had difficulty in finding the hotel from the airport. The exit number suggested is not signposted and you must look for the road name.

Room Tip: The 2x queen are quite cramped try a king room; there was no outside noise but I was at the rear of...

Thank you for your comments. We are actually in the process of adding in new room types to help guest reserve the room most suitable for their needs. Our new room types will specify sizes, shower or tub requests etc. So next time be sure to try our hotel again and let us find the perfect room for you! Thank you once again for your comment! :)

We stay at this hotel once or twice a year and always enjoyed the ambiance. We arrived to a freshly painted car park, freshly painted walkway, new beds, new bedding, new carpet, new TV, sanitized remote control holder, new housekeeping cards for personalized service (wow...love this concept). The front desk agent we recognized from our last 2 stays, apparently she's been here 12 years and still is very warm and friendly. We have to share the lovely photo as the Oregon Antique Car owners were staying here and seeing some of these vehicles parked out front really was a highlight.
Shower water temperature was a bit of a problem but tub was fine so not sure what caused that. Funny thing...just a little heads up about the blow dryers. There are 2 speeds. Off and hurricane ( great for quick dry...really quick dry...but styling...maybe not so much). Ah nothing like a good hurricane to wake you up in the morning. You don't even need the shower just try out the blow dryer.
Always enjoy our stays here. Keep up the good work.

Thank you for your comments and I am glad that you liked our newly renovated rooms! We are always seeking for ways to upgrade our services and amenities for our guests. I loved your comment about our blowdryers and I will be sure to seek out a third option should I need to replace them in the future - OFF, HURRICANE & WINDY. ;)

The location of this hotel couldn't be better for access to Vancouver International Airport, and the free parking offered is excellent value, considering the two week maximum. Granted, the hotel makes it very clear that parking is at the car owner's risk, though they do patrol randomly.
I drove from Bellevue, WA, to meet a friend who was flying in from Hong Kong, and discovered my cell phone had failed. I've stayed at this hotel in the past, so it was familiar and quite welcoming to return for help in this instance; the receptionist was most helpful.
Left a message on my friend's cell phone, and then had lunch in the hotel dining room.
Excellent French Dip sandwich, and well constructed vodka tonic drink. The food was wonderfully hot when it arrived, which is always most appreciated; especially with that particular sandwich which is best served hot.
This hotel is decorated in an old fashioned English style, reminiscent of the 60s, and is a welcome change from the cold, modern ones available these days. Yes, the public area furnishings are becoming worn, but remains comfortable for sitting and enjoying, rather than feeling rushed in sterile environments.
Will return again for the next 'drive & fly' from Vancouver~~!!
Did not use a room this time, so have not rated those.
It is worth knowing that this hotel restaurant is an excellent choice in a rather
commercially unexciting part of Richmond.

Stayed here at the start of a girlie road trip. This property is decorated in a Scottish flare, very warm and cozy. Check in was quick and friendly. Beds were well made and very comfortable. Even though this hotel is right on a busy main street,we were not disturbed by any traffic noise
The continental breakfast was great with many choices and NO STYROFOAM! Will stay here again.

One night stop on arrival at Vancouver Airport, shuttle collection at airport and hotel reception very friendly. Stopped in for a drink in the bar which was also very friendly. A number of people were eating bar meals and they looked very good. Room was very nice and the beds particularly comfortable. In the morning breakfast was good standard fare including fried and scrambled egg and sausage, bacon. A great way to start the day. We got the hotel shuttle back to the airport to collect our rental car before loading and driving off. Very good hotel with no tricks.

A hotel near YVR airport is what we needed, and we definetely lucked out in finding the Best Western Abercorn Inn. Comfy bed, clean, great restaurant and breakfast service. Shuttle service to the airport was a bonus. We will keep the phone number handy for future reference.

We needed a hotel near YVR airport for our flight the next day. We had just had a very bad experience in Mesa, AZ, but we were very pleased to find such good value at the Abercorn. Our king non-smoking room had a wonderfully comfortable bed with a light but warm duvet. The room had a decent sized refrigerator and a large shower. (no tub). The $99 room rate included a hot breakfast in the restaurant and there was a free shuttle every half hour. It was right across the street from Costco which was handy for us to pick up a couple of items before catching our flight home.

Room Tip: A reasonable and convenient place to stay close to the Vancouver airport. Much better than places w...
