"Decent stay"
I think some of the negative reviews are over rated. Although the hotel is older, it was quite comfortable and the desk agents were quite helpful. Location was great for getting around town.

"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.

"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.

"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.

on business so the desk area was important but less than adequate. Closet/desk space was tight. I have multiple food sensitivities so a fridge is always nice and most hotels now have them - this one didn't and created challenges. Otherwise the room was adequate. Staff were very helpful, accommodating and efficient - appreciated the service.

"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.

Scary neighborhood. My husband was propositioned. No parking was available for us. Expensive for what it was. Very small window in one wall of the room. Clean and comfortable bed. Only three instead of four bath towels. No notice of the nice coffee/business center up the stairs to the left of the lobby. Ok but no recommendation or return stay.

I had a conference in Vancouver and decided to look for a cheaper hotel than those that were suggested. This Howard Johnson was an excellent alternative and I am very pleased with my decision. Although the room was a bit drafty and the heater blew out a warm air that was somewhat overwhelming, everything else was great. The room had recently been renovated and everything was new and comfortable. The staff and the location were also great.

We are a heritage building and when the washrooms were built, there was no such thing as heated floors. I'm sorry about that.

"Bring earplugs"
No real issues with hotel (cleanliness, services, etc.) except parking was not very good - really tight spaces for a large vehicle. Nightly parking fee is probably reasonable for a downtown location, I am just not accustomed to paying for parking. The big issue is late night noise. Granville street is party central and once the bars close, the party moves onto the street. On our Friday night stay, the noise lasted until about 4:30 AM. Make sure you bring earplugs.

"Time to update"
We stay here off and on throughout the years. It's starting to show signs of wear and tear and could use some updating. Staff is friendly and the rooms are clean however room 407 has mildew in the bathroom, and a strange smell so we slept with the windows open- then we had a lot of street noise even tho we were on the back side of the building. You can have breakfast at the hotel or turn left out the front door and walk half a block to the " 2 Parrots". breakfast is $7.50 for 2 eggs, toast hash browns and sausage or bacon or ham- and there's a lot of it! If you're looking for the gay neighborhood (Davie Street) just turn right at the a fore mentioned 2 Parrots (not gay).

Dear EJ, Thank you for your review and thank you for staying with us. After Olympics parking tax has been increased from 6% to 21% plus another tax was introduced and that has made our parking in the whole city much more expensive than it used to. Our parking is $ 18.99 taxes included and from what we gathered, it is same as everybody around us. I do understand it is much more than you would pay in Seattle, I'm sorry about that.

So checking in took over 45 minutes because 2 people ignored us then before we even checked in rudely told us to move our car from their parking lot. I said we would gladly but we're not hauling bags from another parking lot a couple of blocks down!! So the front desk lady was rude from begging to end. It's a cute little boutique looking hotel so it has a nice cozy feel to it. Location was great since it was right in the middle of downtown. The sports bar next to this place was awesome. Definitely annoying customer service personnel.

"Very nice hotel"
From the cheerful and helpful front desk persons to general state of maintenance, this hotel is nicely managed. I especially liked the historical photos of Vancouver that line its hallways.- If into the younger night scene in Vancouver, the location could not be more ideal. Others might find the area around the hotel seedy. It is a generally safe area, though, and within easy walking distance of the main shopping area. TIP: Rooms facing front have street noise but also far more light--more cheerful. Rooms in back can be quite gloomy.
