Like other reviewers, I booked this review on Hotwire, so I cannot complain about the price. The room was mildly dated, but well maintained and clean. When we arrived the dial was broken off on the air conditioning unit, making it unworkable. As the room was stuffy, I went to the front desk to ask for help. The clerk came up to our room with a pair of large pliers and did get it going. At my request, she left the pliers and said that someone would come fix the issue the next day. No one ever did come, but with the pliers, we made all the necessary adjustments ourselves.
We were in town for the Vancouver marathon, and this hotel was a straight shot to downtown and the Esther Short Park, no more than a 15 minute drive each way. On the same circular drive was an Applebees, and there were grocery and other stores within a five minute drive.
The pool was pretty typical of this type of hotel, just what one would expect and want with kids. The standard hot tub was also available.
Breakfast was also pretty standard, with waffles and couple of other warm dishes available each day. It was not, however, as well maintained as it should have been. On both days we were there, one dish or piece of silverware was unavailable for the entire time we were there. The breakfast room was larger than most, and it was nice not to have to struggle to find a table, even though the hotel was pretty full.
Overall, this hotel definitely gave a good bang for the buck. It was clean and met our needs well.
