"Decent hotel, but beware of adjacent nightclub"
The hotel itself was fine. It was clean and well maintained. However, I will never stay at this hotel again because it is right next door to a nightclub. The floor of our room was vibrating until 2AM due to the bass coming from the club. It's especially bad when you're laying in bed trying to sleep and you easily sing along with the songs because you can hear them so clearly.

"If you want to be treated as low class"
If you want to be treated as a second class citizen book this through Expedia. Immediately upon realizing our reservation was with Expedia the staff's tone changed. No parking was even purchasable. Room was freezing. Dirty ( pubic hairs left on bathroom counter) and lights left unplugged. Would not recommend.

"Decent location, room smelled bad"
The room smelled like a litter box but we were only there for one night so it wasn't a big deal. Location is good for access to multiple areas of downtown. If you don't want street noise, which can be considerable on weekend, choose a room facing the back. We didn't mind but some may.

"Bad neighborhood but the price was right"
The room was a cubbyhole ... in a lousy neighborhood ... but the price was right, the parking was right next to the hotel, the bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean ... and the front desk staff were excellent. One let me borrow his personal umbrella - so I could take a walk in the rain and go buy my own, which was much appreciated. I was able to walk to BC Place Stadium for the game a relative was playing in. I paid a fraction on the cost of any surrounding hotels in the downtown area.

"Okay"
The service was great. They had a cappacino/hot chocolate machine and you could pay to get online if you didn't have a device to use their free wifi. The rooms and hotel had a bit of a smell and once you got out of the lobby the place looked a bit rundown. The area of town seemed a little iffy but walking a couple of blocks in either direction brought you to a nicer area.

After reading reviews we weren't sure what to expect. The front desk hostess was extremely hospitable and helpful. When we arrived a few hours before check-in, we were told our room was ready. She offered to set us up with tickets to Hop On Hop Off bus which was a great way to explore the city, good for 24 hours. The bus stop was right at the corner. The rooms were clean. Little outside noise. For the price, we were extremely pleased.

"So so motel"
The hotel was clean and close to the downtown area. We arrived about 10pm and our room was available. We were very hungry after a long day of traveling and asked the clerk at the front desk where we could go for food and drinks. She had no clue telling us there was probably nothing open because it was late at night on a Thursday. Well we found out no thanks to her that there was a restaurant/bar RIGHT NEXT DOOR to the motel and even had a connecting door to the hotel. They were open for a few hours more and the kitchen was still open. The room was very clean. But the mattress on the bed was not very comfortable. This is a good motel to stay for one night as a layover but I wouldn't want to spend a whole vacation here.

"Not what you expect"
This hotel was in the center of downtown where all the bars and clubs are.. We traveled on a Sunday so thankfully the scene wasn't going on however if traveling on the weekend I would expect it to be very loud and walking through drunk people on your way back. When we arrived the first thing we saw was a lady with no shoes and rats walking all over her, it was quite the experience. The staff was not friendly in fact they only gave us 3 towels for 4 people in a room which we paid for and gave us attitude when we requested an extra towel. The hallways and rooms smell musty. Spend the extra money and stay at an airbnb or a nicer hotel this place was a dump.

"location is an issue"
There is a disco bar right downstairs. The first night was a Friday and the noise roared through the roof. I got assigned to a first-floor room. The minute I landed my head on the pillow, I felt the vibration. Even though I put on ear plugs, the noise still kept me awake. I appreciate that the staff was nice enough to give me a room in a higher floor. Still that level of noise was a shock. The noise coming in from the window was also terrible. One window clutch was broken and the window was not air-tight, so the noise still sneaked in. It was interesting that the staff replied that the noise was an issue of the location. The street was a noisy area, etc. Ok, I got that. I think people need to be aware of these locational or environmental issues that seemed to be out of control of the hotel itself.

"Functional Hotel but rundown"
Hotel was close to our main activity which was the primary reason for choosing it, but the hotel was quite old with bad smells (lots of perfume/air fresheners covering up I don't know what). The lighting was all pretty dark and the room had one tiny small window facing an alley and buildings. The wi fi also did not work well.

"Adequate."
Polite front desk staff. Room was small, smelled musty upon entry. Odor was likely due to the black mold in the bathroom that had been painted over. Water temperature fluctuated constantly, and the window looked out into a narrow alley space, directly into other rooms. The comforter and sheets were a bit itchy, and I'd rather not venture to guess why. Several dispensaries and run down shops on the same block might indicate the kind of neighborhood to expect.

"Great location but not the best hotel"
Stayed here during the World Cup cause it was least expensive for the area. We got into town about an hour before check-in and found out that parking was soldout. Good thing is that there was other pay parking spots in the area that is walking distance. The room was a decent size but still small. I have never opened a door into a room that was close to hitting the bed. They do not have 24 hr housekeeping so getting extra towels we had to wait until 8am, when they showed up. Once they showed up, it was promptly delivered. The bar next door is pretty nice but there are plenty of places to drink/eat in the area. I first felt sketchy about the area cause there are two marijana stores and an adult store across the street. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I would probably stay here again if there weren't anything else better for the price.

"World Cup Stay"
This is not a hotel. It is a motel. The room was TINY and the hotel itself has not been updated in at least 30 years (and that's being generous). It was clean, but space was tight, you have to pay extra per person if you have more than two people, and the price paid was super inflated due to the World Cup going on. They have limited parking, which was $19/day. I'm not sure if that is the standard price, since they price gouged the entire week. 2 days including parking was 565 CAD...which was in the lower price range for the World Cup events. This Howard Johnson should be ashamed of themselves for the prices, but for the terrible outdated hotel. I would NEVER stay here again.

"Unpleasant"
Arrived very late on a Saturday evening. There is a dance club next door and the patrons where all over the hotel (you had to basically push through the people because they would not move). There was vomit in the parking lot and at the hotel's front door. No bell service or even a cart was offered. The room was tiny and the beds where even smaller. We booked a room for four adults and I kid you not the two beds where so small that if you moved you would fall out. There are three marijuana shops next to and across the street from the hotel, not a smell I wanted on my vacation. There is also an adult shops not far away from the hotel, ugg. The street that the hotel is on was dirty. The only highlight to the hotel is the restaurant Wings that is connected to the hotel.

"Don't believe the pictures!"
Let me begin with the Good. This hotel was clean. The Bad is a very long list highlighted with the following: 1. The rooms are the size of walk in closets. 2. The furnishings were from the mid 70's. 3. The place is under construction. 4. Does not meet the Howard Johnson standards by a long shot. Think motel 6 then subtract 3.5. The Ugly: 1. Only 30 parking spaces for the hotel and if you can find parking $19.00 per day. 2. Located in a red light district with a large homeless / addict population. 3. Noisy from all the commotion going on outside. Example; Shouting from panhandlers "We are criminals give us your money or we will take it anyway". 4. Panhandlers and Homeless people are allowed into the lobby to use the restroom. Additionally, carts from these people are allowed to be stored in they lobby while they are using the facilities. 5. The "Wings" restaurant is actually a bar / nightclub with blaring music where food can be ordered. 6. Expensive!!! 7. Did I say Expensive? I felt like I was robbed and horse whipped! Please stay clear of this hotel. I am a 21+ year military veteran. As you can expect, I have stayed in many different lodging locations of all over the world. Although everything I expressed is based on my opinion, I assure you I have had better lodging in third world countries.
