Beverly from Canada
Queen Room
Stayed 2 nights in September 2012
Budget Hotel”
Staff was friendly and helpful
great location for access to public transit and close to many of vancouver attractions. the staff were helpful and friendly. the rooms need updating and the temperature in the room was too hot. there's a sportsbar in the hotel with great staff, decent menu and good prices. there's a nightclub right next door and noise can be an issue at the wee hours of the morning, depending on the location of the room. overall a good experience for the price

Good location but not very hospitable staff.”
Great location!!!
It was a nice hotel. Clean, tv, airconditioning etc. Very basic and not luxurious but good for a nights sleep and some relaxation. The staff weren't very helpful though. Didn't tell where are room was and didn't attend to our needs.

Basically, A very basic hotel”
Good Pub, friendly pub staff
this hotel is very basic. it is no frills all the way from the small bathroom in the room to the "free" continental breakfast. despite the basic nature of the hotel the internet was good and the beer in the pub was cold.

Location is good for access to vancouver sites”
They are under renovation inside ie lounge, bar, restraunt... none were available during our "visit"
My wife and I reserved on-line for the Kingsway Howard Johnson Hotel in Vancouver but after our arrival we did not stay at there. When we realized that there was no food, no lounge,the room was tiny and carpets were old and some "trip hazards" we left. Advice.... Don't take for granted what you see on the website re condition of this establishment as being true. ASK before you book. Call them directly if you have to. Save a lot of hastle.

Hotel is a one star”
The entire hotel smelled of stale smoke from likely 30 years of people smoking. Karaoke on the main floor could be heard in our 5th floor room. Night club at the back noisy all night. The place is old, dirty and VERY smelly. Afternoon staff "Luba" rude when I complained about noise she claimed I did not ask for any special request on my booking!! seemed upset that she had to go to the bother switching my room. Night security fellow was extremely nice and helpful though. If this is what represents Howard Johnson Hotels I will never patronize them again. I've switched to LaQuinta.

Die Bilder versprechen etwas anderes”
Internet, lokale Anrufe, Frühstück incl.
wir buchten dieses hotel auf grund des noch annehmbaren preises und der nahen lage zur innenstadt. leider sind die fotos sehr wohlwollend aufgenommen. das zimmer war eine mittlere katastrophe, versiffter alter, befleckter teppichboden, tapete löste sich ab, genauso die pappbilderrahmen, altes kleines bad. das ganze hotel braucht dringend eine renovierung. das frühstück war zwar incl., aber eher auf motelniveau als hotelniveau. brot und milch noch in der verpackung, butter im großen bottich. im ganzen sehr schlechtes preis-/leistungsverhältnis.

Erwartungen bestätigt”
Bus nach Downtown, gleich ausserhalb Hotel. Gratis Frühstück inklusive.Vom Flughafen mit Zug und Taxi für ca 15$ erreichbar.
Nicht sehr zentral, lange Fussmärsche nötig um Hotspots zu sehen.
Von der Buchung über Agoda übers einchecken bis zur Abreise verlief alles problemlos. Das Hotel dürfte eines der preiswerteren in der Gegend sein. Das gratis angebotenen Frühstück wird allerdings recht einfach gehalten. Am Abend gibts noch Barbetrieb und Karaoke, was aber im Zimmer nicht hörbar war. Die sanitären Einrichtungen waren soweit in Ordnung.Da ich geschäftlich unterwegs war,habe ich dieses Hotel wegen seiner Lage ausgesucht.(Rehab Center Vancouver)

Hotel da evitare”
Hotel periferico nella splendida Vancouver:siamo arrivati alle 22 ed abbiamo trovato una specie di discoteca nell'atrio della reception,personaggi dall'aspetto poco raccomandabile che entravano ed uscivano dall'hotel, camere piccolissime e colazione inclusa immangiabile,un via vai notturno ai piani con ragazze molto poco vestite. Ho dovuto cambiare hotel dopo la prima notte, trascorsa con un vociare continuo sia all'interno che subito sotto la finestra dell'Hotel.Da cancellare

Good hotel”
convenient and reasonable price
rooom too small
I have stayed here for one night before I went on a cruise the next day. The hotel is not far from the pier but the hotel did not provide any public transportation to the pier and the only vehicle you can take is taxi. Anyway, the overall feeling is all right and would choose to stay here again if I visit Vancouver again.
