This is nice, affordable hotel for this area of town. There are a lot of cool microbreweries, restaurants, and bars that are walkable. This is good because as Vancouver is still sadly lacking Uber, getting around by cab is expensive and annoyingly difficult (try to hail a cab on the streets of Vancouver, and I’ll see you next month)!
There is a mall next door with a big grocery store (supermarket) and all of the typical stores you might expect in a mall (Shoppers Drug Mart, Dollar Store, Electronics Store, Fast Food, Clothing Stores, etc., etc.)
The hotel lobby and entrance are quite unimpressive, and actually feel a bit sketchy—but the rooms are clean and have most of the basics you would expect (mini-fridge, complimentary Keurig coffee maker and pods, fast free Wi-Fi, lots of plugs and USB ports. There is no in-room safe though.
Overall, for the price it’s a pleasant hotel that gives you just what you’d expect.
The laid-back, air-conditioned rooms come with free WiFi, TVs and coffeemakers; some add mountain views and/or minifridges and microwaves
Complimentary full breakfast is provided, as is underground parking.
