A good hotel, clean and with required facilities. The location by English Bay is perfect, by the beach, close to Stanley park and with oodles of restaurant choices. Walkable or a quick bus ride to the main shopping centre.

Good deal

Would recommend Tue, Sep 8, 2015
Location was good for walking to Stanley park but required a bus trip for most everything else. The city buses were very easy to use and inexpensive. We bought day passes at the convenience store down the street as recommended by the hotel staff. The bus stop was right outside the hotel. Couldn't have been easier. Our rooms were on the street side and as expected a little noisy. The window unit ac did drown put some of it. The restaurant downstairs was great. Friendly staff, good deals on drinks and good food. Great breakfast also but not included.

Great overnight location

Would recommend Wed, Aug 12, 2015
I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel, knowing the rate was a lot lower than other properties in Vancouver. Desk staff were very welcoming and helpful and friendly. It's an older hotel, showing its age in the hallways and the tiny bathroom that was typical of simple places in the 60's and 70's. I found that the bed gave me a backache, but my husband and daughter had no problems. In the evening, this is a vibrant, happening area, and it is a great setting for walks on the beach, the sunset, and lots of simple, ethnic restaurants and good pubs. Good value!

Great location!

Would recommend Mon, Jul 20, 2015
This Best Western in close to English Bay AND Stanley Park, walking distance to both. It's also in a very nice residential part of town and right on the bus line to the closest subway station (1 mile away). You don't need to rent a car if you stay here, unless you want to drive to North Vancouver, Whistler, and other locations outside of downtown. There are numerous restaurants within 2 blocks, from casual to smart casual. Although this Best Western does not provide the usual continental breakfast at this location, you will not miss it. Try out the nearby restaurants, so many to choose from, even a 24-hour Tim Horton's is right across the street. We liked the $10 BW reward provided per day if you did NOT require your room cleaning -- to be applied at the restaurant/bar in the same building!

Would recommend Mon, Apr 13, 2015
This is a nice location near the Stanley park and beach. You just walk about 2-3 mins that you would find a lot of restaurants at next street. Also, the room is very clear and quiet.

Great place to stay In Vancouver British Columbia. Convenient to so many fun things to do.

Would recommend Wed, Mar 18, 2015
The hotel was clean, friendly and had a great location. The Hotel Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The only minor issues were that the small A/C unit was way to loud to use at night and there was no Ventilation in the bathroom. The maintenance staff could use some instruction on upkeep and repairs. But all these are easily overlooked.

Was a quick stay. Room was comfortable. Nice bar in the hotel. No negative experience but nothing to differentiate either! Location would probably bring me back, it's very near Stanley Park and lots of nice bars and restaurants.
