Good value presented, but the affordability comes at the expense of fine details. Probably a decent hotel for the price, but you won't feel like you're staying at the Ritz. Do your best to at least get a 5th floor room facing the back of the hotel. Highway 99 is right beside this hotel and may disturb you. Another perk to staying in the back is that you can connect via wireless to the Travelodge across the parking lot. Their wireless internet connection is 10x faster than the Sandman's. It's really abysmal here actually. Wireless or wired I wasn't getting better than 0.25 Mb/s but pulling the signal across from the Travelodge, I could get 2.5 Mb/s You'll have to discover a clever way to get their wireless password from them. I just called and asked, its "delta" by the way. But they might change it up now and then.
So rooms are a tad dated, rough around the edges but price is low and location is convenient. Short walk to the Canada Line train link to downtown Vancouver and a 8 minute drive to the airport. The Moxies restaurant is descent enough. Staff here is fantastic and I will miss them when I move tomorrow. We're hoping to relocate to a nicer hotel with better high speed internet.
