28-Oct-2021 Verified review, stayed from Mon Oct 25 to Tue Oct 26 2021 at a C$83.99 average nightly rate.
"Decent room, noisy a/c, helpful staff."
Overall score3.0/ 5
Hotel is in good location but difficult to find if you're not familiar with city. Room was clean but a bit beat up. Beds were comfy and clean. A/C unit was so noisy that is woke my family up many times through the night. Staff helped us find alternate parking because our truck was too tall for on site lot. Finding overnight oversized vehicle parking is almost impossible in Vancouver!
