A bit dingy, but well located and good value

The hotel is very well located in central Vancouver, about four blocks from Vancouver City Centre Skytrain, direct on the Canda Line from YVR. The staff were very courteous and the room was good value. The place was a bit dingy and the room quite small. Some extra lighting in the room would not go amiss.

Cheap Stay Downton

Spent one night in Vancouver for a sporting event. The hotel is perfectly situated in downtown Vancouver and only a 15-20 minute walk from the main train station. Price was very reasonable considering the location and last minute reservation. In fact the front desk lady gave us a free upgrade so my friend and I would not have to share a bed. Room was clean if slightly dated.

Disappointing

The location isn't bad but the hotel itself had a bunch of little inconveniences that made the stay uncomfortable. It was my least favorite hotel in Vancouver and we stayed in three different hotels during our trip. -internet connection kept getting disconnected -rooms are incredibly small -elevator wasn't functioning correctly -the bed frame is several inches wider then the bed, I kept stubbing my toe It wasn't horrible just not very comfortable.

Two star at best

I was on a business trip and needed to get back and forth from the convention center. It took forever to get a cab. The room was fine, but the bathroom fan sounded like a backyard generator. The food and the Service was fine but nothing special.

bad hotel, bad hockey game

Rooms was small, TV didn't work, housekeeping was shoddy. Worst part was the noise. This hotel caters to a younger crowd who had come to watch the Hockey game and we were kept up till very early in the morning with the noise.

"Awesome location downtown"

Great location to see the city, close to all amenities, sporting events etc..Hotel was very clean, room was average size but just there to sleep and get cleaned up so served its purpose. Great restaurant and bar located in the hotel. Price you pay for what you get was excellent. Only complaint was bathroom very small in my room.

Not so happy

I was attending a wedding so i decided instead of drinking and cabing it home to spend the night at sandman. i've stayed at other Sandman locations and have nothing but good things to say except this location. Upon my arrival everything was great and fast, the room was not so great it was on 11th floor (1114)but since i wasnt staying more than one night i wasn't being too picky. after the wedding i came back to my room for a quick nap before heading to reception, i noticed the door was jammed and the knob was broken (it wasnt when i checked in) my neighbour next door had his door wide open and was lounging in his room in his boxers (uncomfortable with the sight) i knocked on his door and asked if he could call downstairs for me but he decided to help out instead we opend my door and i called downstairs they quickly changed my room and the front desk girl came up with new set of keys to my new room. i was impressed. onto to the next room. after my nap i used the bathroom before i left....well the toilet would not flush so i hd to stick my had in to flush it manually. Not impressed but i was running late and had to leave. the room was right by the elevator and it was loud. VERY loud all night. at that point i wish i had just cabbed it home rather than staying there. the rooms are extremely small and outdated.Beds are extremely uncomfortable....2 days later my neck and back is still soar. Upon check out they did comp my parking. Th staff is very professional and nice but i would NEVER stay there again even if it's a one night stay. nor would i recomand it to anyone.

Canucks Mayhem

I would say nearly half of the hotel went to the game and less than half were drunk in the halls after the game. But other than that A good place to stay
