“A nice stay. Highly recommended.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

This is a review from a stay from seven years ago. I will always have a special place in my heart for the Vlad Motor Inn. I traveled with my sister to help her in the" gotcha day" for adopting her beautiful daughter.
The staff was so friendly and helpful to foreign travelers. The food was great there. We had a comfortable stay there and seemed to be western type style hotel and rooms. The rooms had everything we needed. It had a kitchen, if we wanted to make something. And two separate bed areas with double beds, I think they were double. Free laundry facilities as well.
If you ran out of things to read, you could borrow a book from them.
The most important thing about the Vlad Motor Inn was that it seemed like a safe place to stay in a foreign country. It was very close to train stop. Also, close to the water, bay area and nice park to walk.
If ever have a chance to go back to Vladivostock, I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to other travelers. It is away from city but not far from city.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel a total of 4 times. The first time we stayed for 1 month. We had a great experience and highly recommend this hotel to anyone who will be visiting the area. The location is in a very nice neighborhood and you can walk to a nearby beach that has a park. There is also a tennis court on the property and a room upstairs called "The White Rabbit" that offers an alternative if the weather doesn't permit you to go outside. There you will find a pool table and you can have food delivered from the restaurant. The restaurant has a wide variety on the menu that is reasonably priced with outstanding quality!
Our first trip was in November of 2007 and the other 3 visits were all in 2012. The level of service was excellent on each visit.

Room Tip: We recommend a suite if you are there for an extended period of time.

We stayed at the Vladd Motor Inn when we went to Vladivostok for the adoption of our son. The building is older but it has everything you need. The staff is excellent and the food was very good. They had good prices and room selections. Their water is filtered, which is not a luxury all hotels in Vladivostok offer. It was very family friendly with several places for children to play and explore.

We stayed at the Vlad Inn last November on our 3rd trip to Russia to adopt our son. Our agency representative chose this place because she is a personal friend with the manager & I guess there aren't many child friendly options for hotels in Vladivistok.
Compared to US standards, the Vlad Inn is old & run down. The beds are low to the ground and the mattresses & box springs on our 2 beds were old and nasty. The TV was a 25" old fashioned box TV, with only 1-2 English channels. Rooms were over-priced, but I think we were probably charged more than the locals. The food in the restaurant wasn't terrible, but again over-priced. The bragged about a washer & dryer that are free to use. However, it's one set, and they were never available except late at night. The manager lady tried to act snooty, which is funny because the place is a dump. The gym is really cheap (home grade, not professional gym grade equipment). Stay at the Hyandai if you can, because the price was the same on our 1st 2 trips staying at the Hyandai as our week at the Vlad Inn. And the Hyundai is MUCH nicer!!!

In the past, Vlad Motor Inn provided free wireless Internet to guests in the lobby during the restaurant's operating hours and the only other option was to buy an expensive card for by-the-minute use in the room. However, yesterday the hotel turned on free, high-speed wireless in all of the rooms that works 24/7 and is free! Definitely a big upgrade for people staying here extended periods of time (i.e. adoption).

My family and I have stayed at this hotel 3 times now for over a week at a time.

Our first impression of the hotel was tainted by our American snobbery. While it does not match up to Western hotel standards, the hospitality of the staff causes you to quickly overlook it. The rooms are spacious and clean. Many of the rooms have kitchens and living rooms. They are very basic, but comfortable.

The restaurant has a wide array of food, including Mexican and Italian food. They feature specials and celebrate all of the Western holidays (We happened to be there on Thanksgiving and Valentine's Day)

The hotel is extremely family friendly. They have an upstairs playroom and another play area in the lobby. On the weekends, they have a "clown" come and entertain the young children in the lobby area. It makes for a very relaxed environment.

The staff goes out of their way to make your stay pleasant. Most of them know how to speak English and will always attempt to meet your needs. The hotel manager was so helpful and went out of her way to make us feel welcome.

We thought that we might be returning this summer, but our plans were changed. I found myself sad that I would not get to see the Vlad Inn in the summertime. I hear that it is quite pretty.
