“wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

We spent 3 nights here after a very bad experience at one of the so called better hotels in Vancouver. This was just wonderful. The room was spotless, the staff so helpful, they really couldnt have done more to make us feel welcome. They had a small outdoor pool and seating area which was great as the weather was really lovely. Its close enough to Downtown to access without too much difficulty and great for Stanley park. with free parking, you got the best of all Vancouver has to offer without having to fight through a mountain of traffic or just walk to enjoy it. I would certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: I asked for a ground floor as ther arent any elevators but that just personal preference

We stayed at this hotel and paid upfront through Expedia. They took our card details on arrival and when we checked out told us 'they don't recognise expedia' and charged us again. The rooms are also VERY Average - Don't stay here!! I'm really dissapointed with their attitude to billing me twice!

My family picked the Best Western in North Vancouver since it had the lowest prices. We were fooled into thinking we'd get a suite- what we got was more like an efficiency with barely enough room for 3 people to manuver around. The room itself had an odd smell and curious stains on the ceiling (luckily no leaks) and a carpet I would not set my bare feet upon. The circuitry had issues as one of the light switches by the bed almost made the TV blow out. And yet, despite the squalor, the beds were incredibly cusiony and comfortable!

We asked for a "quiet" room and were at first happy to be farthest back from the main road (Capilano Road). However, all rooms face the parking lot so I don't think any of them are quiet. I stayed up half the night listening to car doors slam and people pack/unpack suitcases and stompy up/down stairs. The other half of my night was spent listening to the upstairs neighbors having, err, relations. So if you must stay here, avoid staying on the ground floor. Just FYI, there are at least two other accomodations within walking distance (Grouse Inn and Comfort Inn) so if you dont like the looks of this place, don't hesitate to walk and check out the other places (which is what we ended up doing).

There's some dinky cafe attached to the hotel that we did not eat in- I don't think breakfast is included in the hotel stay. Wifi was available but it really was skittish and choppy.

To give the hotel some credit, it is cheap and has a good location minutes from the Cap Bridge, Grouse, Lynn Canyon. Also really close to the junction of Marine Drive/99/Lions Gate Bridge so you can pop back into Vancouver or visit Horseshoe Bay, Whistler. So if you really don't care about ambiance and just want a place to sleep, this would fit your bill.

This was a very good hotel to stay at since it was centrally located -close to Stanley Park and downtown Vancouver, with reasonable driving time to Britannia and Port Coquitlam areas.

The front desk staff (particularly Michelle) was very friendly and helpful - giving suggestions to food establishments, shopping malls and directions to attractions.

Our room was clean and comfortable. Beds were in great condition since they were replaced in Feb, according to the hotel staff. Ice and vending machines were closeby.
the only negative point was the parking- stalls were so small that some larger cars took 2 spaces to park so that left even less parking for the rest of the patrons.

The suite on the ground floor was ideal for my mother using a walker - spacious and easy to manouever around the room. It felt very safe for her to be in the room.
The room was very comfortable, clean and relaxing. Bathroom was safe and clean.
The kitchenette was very adequate and the sitting room was spacious too.
The staff at the hotel were all friendly and helpful.
The hotel was very accommodating with extending our stay.
Overall we had a great stay and would have no hesitation in returning to the hotel.
