    1) Staffs were very helpful. 2) house keeping lady was nice, friendly and made me at home.

    The wall was very thin and I could hear all the conversations, TV sounds of next doors.

  • Group of friends

    Conveniently located to downtown Vancouver

    The air conditioner didn't work and the front desk said they would turn on the main airconditioner. It never happened and the room was muggy and warm all night.

    the price was within our budget

    the pipes screeched when the shower was running. the bathroom was tiny!

  • Single

    The rooms were cleaned everyday. Fresh linen and towels. Free newspaper

    Stuffy, no catering facilities. The hotel had a night club which was very noisy, disturbing sleep

    the courtesy of lobby staff and the complimentary tea/coffee at the room

    we could hear the people next room talking perhaps because the room had a connecting door.

    Never again - not recomended

    Budget style motel - rooms not updated , rooms are very small, bathroom has no fan, no heating control, so forth and so forth - I would not recommend staying at this motel unless you are looking for a budget low class motel close to the city centre.

  • Family with children

    It was easy to find and close to many shops and restaurants, it was clean and the staff was pleasant and accommodating to our requests.

    The room was small but adequate for our needs. The pool was closed so that was a disappointment.

  • Older travelers
    6.0

    There was not much to enthuse over during this long holiday weekend, other than the proximity to downtown.

    It would be a waste of our time to submit a written complaint. Never again!

  • Group of friends

    It was close to downtown...

    Floor lamp was falling apart...literally! There was no reading light at the bed. There was no individual heat in each room so we had no heat for two days.The janitor turned it on for one day and then we needed extra blankets. We did not always get face towels. The wall paper is coming off the bedroom walls. The breakfast items were not replaced enough to accommodate all the guests. One day there was only toast and cold cereal at 9:15.

    The rooms were nice and clean. The bus stop to downtown is right in front of the door. The food in the hotel bar is very good.

    You can only leave the window open when you are not there, otherwise the noise level from the street is very high. There is no real restaurant in the house or close by - you dine in a sports bar where most people just drink. Where ever you want to go from there, if you don't have a car you will have to take Vancouver transit.

  • Older travelers

    They provide a lot of small items which are unliely provided by hotels of similar grade.

    Fittings are old, refurbishment is required.

    This is good central hotel if you want to visit and see what Vancouver has to offer. It is fairly close to the center and on the no 19 bus route which takes you right through city centre and onto Stanley Park which is a must visit place. Free Internet worked really well and car parking secure and part of hotel itself.

    Only issue was hotel a little dated, but it was clean, tidy and a good free breakfast is provided.

  • Group of friends

    my room was dirty with garbage on the floor and under the bed still and their was strands of hair in the sheets. cleanliness was poor here.

  • Single

    Very inexpensive

    The location is absolutely rubbish. Too far from anything. There's not even a decent restaurant or bar within walking distance and the breakfast they provide is not unlike a homeless shelter meal and in the same environment too. I was there 5 nights and dreaded going back every night.

  • Single
    3.2

    The staff attitude - time for the breakfast as iy is include in my room rate but when I went there they mention it as complementary and I didn’t get it in all my stay as it is start at 7:30 and I we have tours before that time we can't take it. Hotel not clean at all...there’s noise .also the staff didn't advice me about which she gone to per-AUTH like cad 500/- charged and room cost for 3Day is cad 322/-in general I will not stay there any more..The manager of this hotel supported more than staff itself.
