Great place to stay.

The outside is not much to look at. The inside is great. The room was small but who cares? The room... See full review

Vancouver Ramada

The location is awesome. Very good proximity to the English Harbor, Gastown, The Vancouver Convention Center, etc. Very walkable area. The rooms? Meh. Plain, nothing special, but nothing bad either. The continental breakfast is okay, it was included, so no complaints there! If you're looking to spend under $100 in a world-class city, this is a good choice!

Great Location

The hotel is well located, in the heart of both theater and commercial areas. It is also close to the biggest mall of Vancouver. The staff is very attentive. Good place to stay if you are looking for a nice hotel and do not want spend too much money.

Wheelchair accessible travel

Perfect place for a manual wheelchair accessible stay and travel. Good location,good public transportation nearby.Few blocks from Waterfront station which can take you to airport and city suburbs.Bus stop infront of the Ramada hotel.Perfect sidewalks with curb cuts.Room rate is a bit high but clean with good breakfast and good location.Many streets are like a ramp or elevated.

Good price, decent room..,,,

I chose this hotel because of the price point. I was satisfied with the overall location and cleanliness of the hotel. It was easy enough to find once off of the Canada line and the staff was friendly. Would stay there again. Yagger's next door is a good place to have a drink and good food.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the Canada line from YVR Airport and get of at the Waterfront Terminus. Take escalator to street level and you'll be looking at Pender St. Take a left at the light and the hotel is about 3 blocks. On Sundays the Canada line is even cheaper. Much better than paying for a taxi.

Convenient, but slightly dicey location

This hotel was located in downtown Vancouver, close to Gastown, Chinatown, ships, and tour buses. It was clean, with free WiFi and continental breakfast. Small room, nicely decorated. Air conditioner did not work very well, but otherwise everything was fine. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only real drawback was that the immediate neighborhood appeared somewhat seedy, with a lot of panhandlers. It was fine and reasonably priced for one night, which was what we wanted.

Try the Water Street Cafe in Gastown. It is a short walk from the hotel and is right across from the Steam Clock.

Vancouver 4 day get away

The Vancouver Ramada Downtown Limited Hotel is a bit old and dated, but the rooms are modern and well furnished. Breakfast was included. Not a big buffet, but adequate. Hot items( pancakes, eggs, saussge), cereal, yogurt, juice, coffee, pastries and fruit. Breakfast room is very small and gets congested with all the guests. Hotel is easy walking distance to Canada Place (6-8 blocks) 2 blocks to Gastown and 4 blocks to Chinatown. Bus stops right out front door. Great location and good price for Vancouver, a city of great outdoor fun.

Downtown Vancouver location

Good location between the very cool clean Gastown and the funky shabby Chinatown. Harbor, restaurants, buses and trains all within walking. Taxis easy to order, quick to arrive. This is old Vancouver like old San Francisco surrounded by a huge suburban sprawl. Hotel adjacent to the a Strand-like (NYC) bookstore and near the continent's 1st Ming Dynasty style scholar's garden. Good breakfast, pleasant staff, quick reliable internet AND a lobby pc, too. Elevator needs work.

Cost effective place to stay in downtown

Attended a conference at the convention center. The location is convenient and within walking distance. Sky train station is very near to go to and from the airport. Breakfast was nice with hot items served. The staff is helpful.

Nice, small hotel

This is a small but nice hotel at a good price. We got a small but nice room with a free breakfast. A good deal for the price. The staff were helpful in suggesting restaurants. The taxi to the cruise ship is a short ride or you can walk 4 or so blocks.

Comfortable, clean, and close to all

I attended a business conference and stayed a few extra days for fun. I was very pleased with my accomodations. It is not a 5-star hotel, but it doesn't profess to be one. It had everything I needed and included a nice breakfast every morning.
