"The hotel was comfortable, and the front desk clerk was helpful. Book it.2019-06-04"
"The hotel setting was beautiful. Good, basic food and coffee, but there were no tea bags in the room. The staff was helpful.2017-06-08"
"Beautiful setting surrounded by hills, but not convenient if you don't have a car. Clean hotel room and friendly, helpful personnel. The restaurant was convenient. The only issue was the morning vacuuming in the lobby; it was noisy and we had to keep moving so we didn't interfere with housekeepers.2017-05-06"
"The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. No airport shuttle, so plan on paying $60 for a taxi.2016-08-02"
"There were too many decorative pillows on the bed, which we had to remove for sleeping. The parking fee was ridiculous, and there was no elevator from parking to the lobby; had to climb stairs. Find another hotel - this one wasn't worth the price.2015-06-26"
"The hotel needed updating, but it was OK for a short stay.2021-11-24"
"The motel was run-down, and the bathroom was dirty. Don't stay here.2021-07-15"
"The motel looked abandoned, and it looked like homeless people were being sheltered there. The room was old and worn, and it smelled strongly of air freshener and made me nauseous. I didn't feel safe and immediately checked out.2021-05-28"
"The room was dirty and smelled like cigarettes. The bedsheets were questionable; we brought our own pillows and sleeping bags and used them. There was hair in the bathtub and black mold in the shower. The drywall was flaking off. The front desk clerk was super nice, and dogs were allowed, but everything else was horrible. Don't stay at this motel.2016-06-26"
"Close to Ambleside Park and Park Royal Mall. The motel was clean, and the front desk clerks were helpful. Good parking.2016-03-17"
"I spent a night in total luxury at this hotel. Just a 5-minute walk to our cruise ship, and there was even a shuttle service to the ship. No airport shuttle, though, and the taxi wait was about 20 minutes.2016-08-06"
"Conveniently located at the cruise ship terminal. Beautiful hotel with a comfortable, lovely room. The staff was friendly. This is a pricey choice.2016-07-09"
"Nice hotel, but since it was already expensive, it was annoying to have to pay for Internet access. Ideally located for our Alaskan cruise.2016-05-22"
"Expensive but wonderful hotel. I felt the price was worth it. Everything was so convenient. Short walk from the Canada Line to the hotel. Having a room on the dock side allowed us to watch our cruise ship arrive in the morning. The morning we checked out, we left our luggage with the bell staff. The next time we saw it was in our stateroom on board our cruise ship. We'll stay again.2015-06-28"
"This hotel is reliably good. Great location in Gastown near the cruise ship pier. Pleasant employees.2017-05-23"
"Close to the train station, cruise terminal, Stanley Park, and Gastown, and a direct shot to the airport. The hotel was clean, and the staff was helpful and friendly. We were able to store our luggage before and after checkout while we explored the city. Nice view from the outdoor breakfast terrace.2016-07-25"
"Lovely, large hotel room. Great in-room dining service, and the food was fantastic.2015-10-01"

"The hotel was expensive, but the beds were comfortable and the valets were great. The granola at breakfast was delicious.2019-08-25"
"Short walk to the entertainment district and restaurants. We arrived at the hotel early, but the check-in clerk went out of her way to find us a room that was available right away. She was pleasant, efficient, and personable. The room was spacious and attractive, with floor-to-ceiling windows and an extremely comfortable bed. The bellboys were efficient and friendly, and hailed us a cab to the pier within minutes. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.2016-09-28"
"Beautiful hotel. Lovely staff. Excellent restaurant. We stayed 2 nights, and it was a wonderful experience. Appreciated the wine and chocolate-covered strawberries for our anniversary; it was a special gesture. Great place to stay. Highly recommend.2015-05-30"
"The hotel was expensive, and the room was the size of a postage stamp. No complimentary breakfast.2016-05-20"
"The hotel was convenient to Canada Place, and the 2-room suite was an excellent value.2016-05-07"
"We had to park 2 blocks away and walk to the hotel with our luggage. The bathroom was bigger than the bedroom, and the toilet ran all night. The room did have a window, but it faced the cement wall of a closed, run-down building. The bed was a double, not a queen. I'd never stay here again.2016-05-03"
"Great location. The hotel was dated but clean, and the staff was wonderful. They went out of their way to give us useful information and accommodate our needs. If you're not planning to spend a lot of time in the room, this is the place.2015-09-22"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
