This hotel is not your luxury hotel, but it is clean and comfortable. The location is excellent. Buses go by frequently right outside the door. Many restaurants, coffee shops, good grocery stores, pharmacy are all near by. The lounge downstairs is great and the few meals we had there were wonderful. My one complaint is there is no hot tub or sauna.
Value for the dollar is excellent.

First night we had a room just two doors away from elevator. Since we are light sleepers, we were awakened periodically by elevator doors and sometimes by other guests coming or going. Asked front desk staff for change and they immediately responded with a change to a similar room near the end of the hall. Slept well over the next two nights. Which brings us to the bed – king size and really comfortable.
Good WIFI and standard TV station choices.
Hotel staff in all positions were friendly and hospitable. Should win awards for their attention to detail. They would do everything in their power to help us navigate the city. Hotel is well situated, just across from English Bay. Good bus service to “downtown” Vancouver. All good.
Food stores, pharmacy, fast food and a variety of restaurants all within walking distance. Not to mention English Bay across the road. Stanley Park is maybe a 15 minute walk away.
Parking stalls are designed for smaller cars. We have an older large car and found the stalls tight.

We were here in late September prior to a Pacific Coastal cruise. The location downtown was excellent and gave us easy access to restaurants and tourists sites. We could walk to the nearby water to watch sunsets with the locals and there was a Hop on Hop Off bus stop right there. We were a short cab drive away from the cruise port. The hotel room was perfectly adequate, nothing fancy and the onsite restaurant was great. There was a Tim Hortons right across the street for coffee and quick meals. Right on the edge of Gay Vancouver!! I’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

great location for restaurants, buses etc.just steps from stanley park/english bay.hotel staff were friendly & capable.great pub style restaurant /sports bar on site.breakfast isn’t worth the price but lunch & dinner were great with lots of choice.very good beds.sub par bathroom & shower

We are enjoying every time we stayed with Best Western. The staffs always friendly and helpful. Very clean inside the room and got a good coffee and TV. Most of Best Western are pet friendly when we need to travel with my dog a lot.

Very nice hotel and area was great. Super friendly staff, and super clean room, I highly recommend this hotel if you want clean, nice and close to beach. The staff offered a coupon for our dinner plans, so let them know where you plan to eat you may get lucky too

Great location. Can’t beat this price for downtown Vancouver. Close to the water. The bus stop is right across the street. You can also rent bikes from a place right across the street. We stayed on the 2nd floor and it was quiet. Lots of great restaurants very close by. It’s an older hotel but clean and we didn’t spend a great deal of time in the hotel as there’s so much to see and do in the area.

We travel up to Vancouver every New Year’s Eve and stay 3 or 4 days. We can’t imagine staying anywhere but the Sands. Great staff, super location, excellent lounge and restaurant, very comfortable and clean rooms…….all of these things add up to a trip we look forward to every year.

I wanted to take my husband on an over-nighter to Vancouver for his birthday this year. We stayed at the best western plus sands and it was awesome! I booked it online and under the “special requests” box I asked if they could have one of those happy birthday foil helium balloons in the room ready for us. I totally forgot I had asked and when we got there, it was floating above the bed and my husband was so happy! The bed was so comfortable and the pillows were amazing! Not the normal neck cranking, can’t sleep type, but actually very comfortable! I almost want to see where they get them from. Front desk staff was very polite and helpful as well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.

The most unfortunate thing about staying here was that unbeknown to us we had picked the busiest weekend of the year. We had booked the hotel about 10 or 11 months in advance but we’re disappointed that the costs had risen. We didn’t pay for what was going on as we wanted to be the tourist and see what Vancouver had to offer. With roads closed we found it a bit difficult to get about. We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and in prime position for English Beach and Stanley Park. You don’t necessary need a car as there is trolley buses/buses outside the hotel, no good when the roads are closed. Parking is ok. They have an open air one and one underneath easily accessible to get into the hotel.Disabled parking is underneath. Our room overlooked the car park so was quite cool. It was clean and had ample storage/hanging space. The room was clean if not a bit dated. We had clean towels each day.Bed was comfortable. There is also tea and coffee making facilities. Breakfast isn’t included in the rate so you can use the restaurant which is attached to the hotel. It has a pretty standard menu with prices fairly reasonable and well cooked. Some days you have to wait a bit. Otherwise not a bad stay, hotel just needs a bit of a makeover.

This is an older hotel in need of renovation and sound proofing. The staff does what it can to make up for these deficiencies, but they can only do so much. The location is super and is in a happening neighbour. I might stay here again, but would spend time looking for quieter accommodations in the area.

We stayed for 4 nights. Perfect location for walking to all areas. Right by the beach and close to Stanley Park but still walkable to downtown, Canada place, Gastown etc and ferry to Granville island just round the corner. Bus stops right outside. Great choice of breakfast and bar, restaurant good for dinner. Very comfortable room. Only criticism was room was very hot but aircon worked ok. Would definitely return

Can’t complain about the great price foe being right downtown. We had a great view of English Bay from our room. The rooms were clean. Only issue was Davie St can be quite noisy and the buses are noisy when they are lowering the bus right outside your window all night. Other than that I really enjoyed the hotel.

We stayed 5 nights at the hotel and the location was one of the best in the city! The service that the staff offered us was beyond anything we have ever imagined. It made our stay very memorable. We will never forget this hotel. Thank you best western.

So convenient for Festival of Lights fireworks. 3 minutes walk to bat for evenings entertainment. Great location for English Bay. Fast & helpful checkin, clean, spacious room on 5th floor, if a little dated. Convenient parking which is rare in Downtown hotels. Huge breakfast in Park Bar off reception which was reasonably priced. Would stay again.
