"Well located intermediate chain hotel."
Typically of intermediate hotel chains. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well appointed. Staff are friendly enough. Room is a tiny bit small but otherwise very good. Location is excellent, especially if you want to be in the middle of the action on Friday or Saturday nights.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Happy with our stay."
We were happy with our stay at this hotel. It met all our basic needs - room was clean and staff were very helpful with information. The location was very convenient for us. We were able to walk to everywhere - downtown and across the bridge to Granville Island, and we were also able to take public transportation easily. Overall - we are satisfied with […] this hotel.

The floor in our room was slanted so we felt like we were on a mo inv ship! The tv was at the side of the bed maki g it hard to view. The staff at the front desk were very nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I stayed in a double, which was pretty small but good considering the price. The location is excellent on Grandville and there is a bar attached to the hotel. However, I was disappointed when the hotel ran out of parking and had to find a random parking lot.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Centrally located, clean and friendly staff"
We had a layover in Vancouver and found this hotel to be perfectly located to enjoy an easy walk and ferry boat ride (suggested by the lobby personnel) to Granville Island. The redecorated older hotel has a comfortable lobby and helpful staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We got a room on the 1st floor and apparently it was directly over a restaurant/club. We could hear the music all night, following by people in the alley throwing away glass bottles afterwards. The noise finally died down around 4am. Unless you are a pretty heavy sleeper and want the convenience of the downtown location, I'd choose a different hote […] l.

...it was a room. The location was perfect for what I needed, and the hotel itself was ok, the service was great. The maintenance men cleaned the elevators with something that was similar to gas, so it was a HUGE concern when I first stepped into the elevator, and was not happy with that chemical smell. The lounge downstairs was good, excellent hot […] wings. And at the end of the night, the heater didnt work, so they sent up a small plugin heater. I wasnt IMPRESSED but it was a good sleep.

"Worst Vancouver Stay to date."
DO NOT stay at the HoJo. The quality of service was the worst I have ever recieved while staying in Vancouver, and I frequent hotels in Vancouver, let's just say I will never be returning to this one. The employees at the front desk were rude and did not pay attention to us during our check in, we were not even told what room number we were staying […] in before we were shoved our keys with a quick abrupt "BYE" from the employee checking us in. The cleanliness of the room was okay, definitely happy that we brought some of our own blankets. If you are looking for a friendly, comfortable stay, I would look elsewhere.

"Nice room...too bad it faces Granville"
The hotel was great except that the bar crowd kept me awake until 3 AM. My room faced out to Granville Street, so next time I'll ask for a different room than 116.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No sleep due to noise from disco next door"
Outdoor parking lot is conveniently next door to entrance, costing $15/night. Couldn't sleep due to noise from disco (stereo system and people talking). Window covering would not close so street lights shone into room all night. Heater fan was very loud--either on for a noisy warm room or off for a less noisy cold room. I had to stand and wait in the […] lobby for 15 minutes in order to check out. Sports bar off lobby was not appealing, but The Edge restaurant one block away offered a superb brunch breakfast.

"Great location in the center of city nightlife"
This hotel is located on busy Granville St which in the evening is very lively and teeming with action. Nightclub next door will ROCK you to sleep for sure. I am not a light sleeper so the music never bothered me but if you wake at the slightest noise, this hotel is not for you. Very centrally located and within walking distance of just about every […] thing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location to go out to bars on Davie St"
Very accessible location. Not luxurious but clean and efficient. Grandville St is a little run down, but the hotel is probably the best option for the price in that area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Counter service was not good. It is old, really need to remodel the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Howard Johnson Review."
Room was not what I expected. Guest services were great. Our heater did not work. Overall I would not stay there again unless the beds were bigger.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Looking to save a dime but still get good value.."
Location was close to Granville Island, also Yaletown. But in sort of a seedy theatre district..not unsafe but not much to look at. But only two blocks away very nice areas. For the value, in Vancouver, was a great deal. Hotel room was clean, everything worked, staff very helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Hotel that can't please it's guests"
I went to Vancouver to see my friends, So they stopped by to pick me up n then when I checked out the next day I was charged $30 extra for my friends. I was not pleasedGenuine Expedia guest review
Charged for "extra person" in the room. We had 3 people for two beds??? Clean and good location. Rates where fair before the charge.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"very convenient from seattle...no turns off 99..."
great location as long as its only one night, room was clean and comfortable, shame the curtains did not completley close otherwise I may have slept in til 800Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Located in a dirty, loud part of town. Poor parking (empty whiskey bottles in parking lot). Very noisy. Hard to sleep. Will never go to a Howard Johnson again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I enjoyed the room, but miss the nightgown I left behind! Only thing I did not like was the inability to get American money in change after breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better than I expected"
I really liked this hotel. The staff was friendly and my room was clean and well kept. The only complaint I have is that the surrounding area can get a little intense in the late evens but that is to be expected in a downtown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not bad for short notice!"
It was in the somewhat of the heart of downtown! Closer to food shop stores then expected! Not a ba. Place to stay on short notice!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for 1 night, not more."
The hotel was clean but the room was very small, we had 2 twin beds and 1 outlet. The AC unit was loud throughout the night. Parking there is limited, so I would recommend arriving early in the day to park & come back to check-in later. Parking was affordable at $19 a night, you can come & leave as you like. It's in a noisy area of the entertainment […] district but we didn't hear any of the noise sleeping. Also, it's a great and very short walk to Yaletown. Employees at the front desk were nice & friendly. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"never ever go here!"
extremely poor...toilet cloged up and was given a plunger in my own hands to do it myself! NO wake up call received...asked to speak to manager and clerk always had an excuse of why i could not.. taking the matter to the HOWARD JOHNSON international team for complaints.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older hotel, reasonably maintained."
Old but reasonably maintained hotel that just has the basics. Small rooms. Suffers from a location with sex shops and nightclubs nearby that were likely created long after its establishment. Staff was friendly. Room was clean and hotel surprisingly quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No views, but good location and comfortable stay"
There is a club next door, so if you plan to go to bed early, Friday and Saturday night might not be the best choice. There may be other rooms where noise is less, but we seemed to be right next to it in our room. However, we are in our early 30's and spent most of the day walking and getting tired, so didn't really have any specific problems sleeping. Comfortable […] bed and clean room. Lots of good food within walking distance depending on how many blocks you can walk. Seemed that most breakfast places (except coffee shops) didn't open until 8 am, but lots of late night stuff. Don't stay here expecting any great sky views. Our view was just a small rooftop and a wall of windows. I'd stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Location for Nightlife Good but..."
Noise, My room was not cleaned, parking was poor, and overall disappointed in the quality. The location to lots of nightlife was EXCELLENT. However for the price paid per night, the location did not make it worth-it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good place to go and enjoy the city."
Very helpful front desk staff. Upgraded to a larger room with no problem!Genuine Expedia guest review
The staff was a lot of fun and helped me with my plans.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a very convenient place to stay with the activities my friends and I had planned. The hotel was in good condition and I really liked how you needed a room key to use the elevator. It made us feel a bit more secure, being a small group of girls. Only thing I would change was that they didn't offer breakfast, we couldn't find the breakfast place […] they recommended and ended up walking for ten minutes before giving up.

The hotel staff were friendly and always helpful. My room, # 115 was very clean but the shower head was broke so I had to bath. The amenities were more than adequate and the location to bus and restaurants were more than I could utilize. I would return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Not enough hand and shower soap. the quality of shampoo is dreadful. The smell at the hallways and bedrooms is bad and very humid. The flowers at the lobby were totally dried. Location is very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cheap but clean"
An older hotel located right on busy Granville. First night was in room on the street side- very noisy & I got no sleep. Asked for another room which was much improved. Overall hotel was in pretty tired condition. Suitable it you're on a budget but I would suggest paying a little more for a newer hotel would be worth it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"eh... just poor all around."
Nothing special. DO NOT EAT @ WINGS adjacent to the hotel. Food and Service were horrific. Halls smelled like ammonia (read as cat urine) and the parking was less than desirable (a dirt lot in the alley for 19 bucks a night!!)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to all must-see sights"
The room was small, but the main problem was the window looked over the exhaust port for the kitchen so the room had a fishy smell. Had to leave the air conditioner on and spray a little perfume. Everything we needed to see was within walking distance so for the price it really was acceptable. The service was excellent. They went out of there way to […] help. I guess if we wanted to change rooms they would have obliged, but we decided to stay in our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
For the price this hotel was the winner. There are however much nicer placest to stay downtown. Parking was high at $19 a night. My biggest concern was vandalism of our vehicle in their parking lot. It is monitored but the front desk didn't ever seem to be paying any attention to the tiny monitor showing the parking lot surveillance. Definitely take […] anything valuable out of your vehicle if at all possible. Room was ok but the noise outside was a little obnoxious at times. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay at HOJO Vancouver! Disgusting."
I booked this using the unpublished reviews, which was my first mistake - the moment the name of the hotel appeared and I read the reviews of others I immediately regretted my decision, but thought I would give it a shot (and had to, since it was non-refundable). The hotel was TERRIBLE. I would absolutely not recommend it to anyone. It smelled awful, […] was somehow extremely hot (it was only 50F in Vancouver), our room was filthy (dust and hair everywhere), noisy, and we had a hole in our floor(!!!) that was directly over a bar underneath of us. We ended up trying to shove pillows and towels in and around the hole in the floor and the window unit air conditioner just to try to get some rest. Also, the rooms are tiny, the Internet didn't work, and the hotel offers nothing aside from a place to sleep. . we told the hotel staff, about some of our bigger concerns, but the hotel was booked up and they couldn't move us to another room, and refused to give any sort of discount (which they could do since I had already paid through this site - and would have left the moment I walked in, if I knew I wouldn't just be out the money). I cannot stress enough how absolutely disgusting this hotel was. I can't imagine for the life of me how it has more than 1 star. Afterward, when we told some friends from Vancouver where we ended up staying, they laughed and said that this hotel is basically considered a brothel by the locals - after being there, I have absolutely no trouble believing that.

This is a horrible, over-priced hotel. I paid for a room which I thought had "parking" included but it did not. So I gave the lady a $20 for the first nights parking. Next morning she called my room asking if I want parking for another day, so I said yes, just charge it on the card. When i went to check it she charged me for 2 nights of parking even […] though I already paid for one up front. I argued and still no change from them. The keycards always stop working which is inconvenient because I have to keep getting a new one. This place has horrible customer service and I will never go here again.

The room was clean, but because it's an old hotel the water pressure for the shower was very poor. Other than that the service was good and the location was great.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Howard Johnson Hotel Downtown Vancouver"
Stayed on a weekend, very loud and noisy. NO PARKING...It took us 45 min to find a lot to park in. They have one parking lot adjacent to the hotel but it was full (abt 20 spots total) and the concierge told us to drive around and look for a lot!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson on Granville ans Davie (Vancouver)"
Overall stay was worth $$ paid just due to hotel's location, close to DT, but it was the only positive thing about it. I stayed there for a week, on a day of departure I saw a mouse in my room! Also, the heating/AC unit needed a service, maybe changing a filter would help. I had a strange cough during all duration if my stay. It was getting worse at […] night and as soon as I moved out it stopped! I suspect it had something to do with the heating unit or the chemicals they use in a hallways/rooms? I didnt mentioned it to the staff as I was not too sure what is causing it but now I am certain it had a direct relation to the hotel or the room itself. The towels were changed daily, but the maid forgot to refill the coffee/tea once. Internet connections was very unstable, I could not use Skype for communicating with my family. Would not stay again.

"Howard Johnson in Vancouver downtown"
the location is very convenient if you for a place in downtown closed to most of the hot spots of the city. The room was surprisingly very clean and comfy. There are different options to eat some food around for a very good rapport quality/priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson - Granville St"
I recently stayed at the HoJo in Vancouver, in the cheapest room available, and I had a very positive experience. Friendly and helpful staff, clean, and the location is amazing! For the price I paid, I definitely feel that it was a worthwhile place to stay and would recommend this hotel to everyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This hotel had a great location to all the clubs and restaurants. They had a convenient parking lot close to the hotel. The front desk agents were friendly. Great for the price if you just want to be central to all bars.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Howard Johnson Hotel Downtown Vancouver"
The only thing was the drapes didn't cover the window because of the AC stuck in the window. So had to pull them across the AC unit and tuck the one side into a door on the unit. OK after that. Great location. Close to many places to eat or drink or shop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
