Exceptional...for the price

If you're looking for a cost-effective trip, this is the place to stay.The suites are big, with a full kitchen (no dishwasher), a living room, and a nice size bedroom. For the price, it was perfect.

Great location

The location is almost perfect, between the shopping area (about one block away), English bay and the stanley park (beach, pool, cycling, rollerblading ...). The one bedroom apartment is simple but clean and large enought for two or three people. There is no air-conditioning system. The staff is kind, the desk is open 24/7. So, good quality, great location and average cost.

Best view for the price!

Great deal for price. Location and view were the best. Could walk almost anywhere in the city. Near Stanley Park, museums and shopping. Very clean but a 50's style decor. Roomy with living room and kitchen. Noisy when window were open, but too warm to leave them closed with no fan or A/C. I would stay again when weather is cool. Friendly, informative staff. Free parking.

Be sure to do the bike rentals near Stanley Park. Great way to see the city. Great dining anywhere you turned. We just found an interesting restaurant or two and were never disappointed. Very diverse city, lots of languanges.

Extremely clean, all basic amenities

All the rooms in this hotel are one-bedroom suites that have a living room and kitchen complete with pots/pans, cutlery and a coffee maker. The bed was queen-size, and the sofa unfolded into a double bed, so for two people it was ideal. Room was extremely well-clean, which makes up for what travelers who are used to nicer-looking accommodations would call "shabbiness." I read other reviews before staying here, so I expected this. For the price and the location (Robson St., pretty safe I would say) this was a steal. Also front-desk staff were very friendly.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

There's a restaurant on Pender St in Chinatown, I forget the name, but it has both "bakery" and "smorgasbord" on the sign...it's a restaurant/bakery and they have a huge selection of Chinese breakfast and dinner foods at low prices. There were racks of steamed buns being carried around...always a welcome sight in my book.

good value/location

nothing fancy but all clean & we liked the small kitchenette w/fridge, stove and micro. The location's the best part if you want the energy of downtown Vancouver. It's right in the midst of popular Robson Street area, with lots of shops and especially, dozens of restaurants within a matter of blocks, various prices and every ethnicity you can imagine. One of my favorites--Hon's Noodle House--is right next door. No matter where you stay in Vancouver, don't miss the Museum of Anthropology at UBC (not downtown but a pretty drive). It's amazing, one of my favorite museums in the world.

If you really love Chinese seafood and/or dim sum, be sure to try Sun Sui Wah on Main Street. A little upscale but not expensive, unless you go for their fantastic Alaskan King Crab. If you're not up for seafood try dim sum and a roasted squab.

Great locations and friendly staff

The room had a great view, great location and the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was also larger than I expected with a small kitchen and living room. The room was clean although slightly dated.

This is a basic hotel, however it is very cheap and very clean. The rooms are large with kitchenettes and TV area. Great location.

You can walk to Denman Street in the West End, for a variety of restaurants and bars. Also, just across from Robson Street is the Landmark Hotel - go to the top floor for a drink and the best view of Vancouver you'll ever see.

Pleasant stay away on a budget.

We stayed a Thursday, Friday and Saturday at the Tropicana..Check out time they say is 11am and not 12pm. The room, which is dated but clean and quiet had a nice view, comfortable beds and a nice breeze through the open windows. No A/C was available. Daily temps were around 75'F. We found this to be a nice two star suite. We would stay here again.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

With free parking you save twenty to thirty dollars per day over other hotels. Short or long walks will get you to Davie Village, lots of shops and even west to Stanley park. The buses are great and plentiful. All day parking in the park would cost you ten bucks.

Hotel needs upkeep.

The Tropicana left a lot to be desired. Although the rooms were large, there was no air conditioning and the room was in ill repair. Upon waking up in the morning I had to wait almost an hour to have enough hot water to take a very quick shower before checking out. The location of the hotel is on Robson street. It was close to a lot of clubs and dining. The hotel itself had no restaurant to speak of. I wouldn't recommend this hotel. It wasn't worth it for the price I paid.
