"worst hotel ever"
I will never book in this hotel again. even if it is the last one. I would prefer to drive 150 miles to an event that to stay in that place. the people are rude unhelpful and the have some kind of ponzie skim with the tow truck company. they wait until you go to your room at night and the they call the tow truck company to take your car. proven by many […] people that stayed there and even the taxi draver that took me to go get my car.

"Nice Old Hotel"
Large room with kitchenette. Felt like a small apartment more than a hotel room. Had a great view of english bay. Close to a lot of good restaurants and Stanley Park.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice place to stay for the price"
This hotel was very nice for the price. The room was ok, a little dirty, which we knew to expect. I will still stay there again for the location, and the cost. This was totally worth the price. I have read some complaints about the smell, but I did not have any problem with that. It smelled like Lysol, Pine-sol, or celery, depending on the time of day. […] Over all I really liked this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location old hotel"
it's a very old hotel. The room smells like really really old wood, specially when it's rainy. and during our stay, it rained a lot. The room was clean but the sheets were way too tiny for the bed. The sheet kept coming off from the mattress. The service isn't great. When we checked in I wasn't sure if I came to the right place because the guy at the […] front desk just kept staring at me without saying anything. That was really weird. The room was nice and big. We had enough towels for ever but the towels weren't very good quality. We didn't use the kitchen other than the microwave for popcorn and the freezer for ice cream. but it's surely good to have the option. The location is very nice. There are a lot of nice places to eat around. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance beach/parks/good transportation."
This hotel was perfectly located; close to beach, restaurants,cafes, markets, bars, emergency clinic across the street, bus lines, trolley line and shopping malls. The hotel is old but clean and staff is on call 24 hrs. The hotel is efficiently run by Chinese, It is 4 stories high, with the bottom floor at zero or really 5 stories. I would have given […] a 5 rating for facilities except that the internet did not work consistently above the second floor. I was on the third floor and most of the time the internet did not work there. I informed the staff and one staff member said electronics were just unreliable, sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. I did not have a problem at other hotels with the same laptop. The room included a kitchen with stove, microwave, refrigerator, dishes. The bathroom was large with a large bedroom including 2 beds. The place was very clean and worth the money $139.00 and we stayed three nights. The wake up call was on time and we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to everyone who wants a downtown location close to everything. Phone calls are very expensive if you do not have a cell phone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what we expected."
The rating of 3.6 was deceptive for this hotel. The hotel needed overall maintenance, throughout the building. Everything was generally dirty, including the elevator and hallways. The room was a mix of comfortable beds with clean linens to an old 4 burner stove with masking tape identifying the burners. The parking was behind and under the building, […] with a narrow staircase leading up to the alleyway and then onto the lobby. There is no easy way to get your luggage up those stairs. No elevator. The one good thing about this hotel was it's proximity to English Bay, which was within a block. You can see it from the window in the room. I would not recommend this hotel.

Hotel is right in the middle of downtown. We spent 2 nights there. Room was clean. It has a little kitchen that we didn't use but if we wanted it had everything u need. And the price was low compared to other hotels in the area. Staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Decent hotel in a great location"
Hotel is not new but clean. There is some kind of weird smell in the halls and rooms but we were able to get rid of it in the room by opening the windows. Front desk staff is helpful. Internet connection is reliable. Windows are huge and the view is nice (our room was on the 4th floor). The best thing is the location. Super close to the English Bay […] and Stanley Park. Tons of restaurants for all tastes on Denman Street. Not too far from the Robson Street if you want to go shopping. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome location on west end"
Got there before check in and they allowed us to leave our luggage.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Phishing in Vancouver"
Website room photos do not reflect actual room that you stay in, they probably fixed one room for photos. Wall to wall carpeting went up the walls 3 inches, no baseboards. The kitchen fascilities were minimal, you had a electric kettle and it was extremely difficult to get to stove as the refridgerator was so tightly spaced next to it. The windows were […] extremely old with portable AC unit hanging through window. It appears this facility used to be apartments that were turned into hotel rooms. Expedia should call this English Bay Hotel Apartments not English Bay Hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Excellent price for the locationGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Simple, Great Location, very well maintained"
Everything was very well organized at the hotel, and the room was clean, well maintained and in a beautiful location for viewing the ocean. We had a great room, spacious, clean, simple and couldn't have been happier. But there is nothing fancy. This is clean and simple. But very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location, Mediocre Room"
Pros: Great location. Stanley park is few blocks away and there are MANY restaurants in the area. The hotel is one of the cheaper hotels in the area. The room has a kitchen - full frig, stove, and cabinets, although we did not use it. Pretty fast wifi. Cons: Room smelled strongly of chlorine upon arrival. No AC so it got pretty warm at night, even with […] the windows opened. You can hear almost everything that's going outside the hotel, from homeless people singing to car exhausts, even with the windows closed. This made sleeping difficult.

The English Bay Inn is a good value in a great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff were wonderful: good advice and helpful. The "boss" (as he called himself) responded to a request for a screwdriver by accompanying the screwdriver to our room and taking over the repair project (a card shuffler) - and would accept no tip. Thanks for everything!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great people"
stayed one night. Great location downtown right near the beach. I stayed on the third floor and had an ocean view.the hotel is oldand the furniture in the rooms is oldbut they keep it cleanspace and the room had a flat screen.the hotel is on a busy street so if you are not used to the city it may be too noisy. The people at the front desk were very […] nice and helpful. There are a lot of bars and shops near the hotel. I did not drive and was able to walk to many of the attractions in the area. There is also a bus stop across the street. I would definitely go back to this hotel but if you have expensive taste it may not be for you. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
So we stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon. We were trying to save a few bucks while in Vancouver. The hotel itself is definitely not high class but, fantastic location. The room was much better than we expected and perfectly comfortable (even had full kitchen). We spent sunsets hanging out with the locals on English Bay Beach (right across the […] street from hotel). Its in such a vibrant part of town with so much activity and restaurants galor. For half the price of basically anything else in downtown, its a nobrainer! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is perfect. Staff were very friendly and polite. The room was very clean with lots of facilities. Mini kitchen was fantastic. I recommend this hotel to everyone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Love this place, its location and room pricing"
This was my third week-long stay at this hotel. The rooms are always clean and include a small kitchenette. The room price is terrific, and I will continue to stay here during all my future visits to Vancouver. The room was cleaned daily with the used towels and sheets routinely replaced. The location is wonderful. Hotel is a short walk to the beach […] and sea wall trails, Stanly Park nature preserve, the aquarium and the many fun restaurants in the area. It sits on the main transient routes for Vancouver’s excellent public transient system, plus down town center city is a modest walk away, as are the small boats shuttling people to the delightful Grandville Island tourist trap. You can open the windows to catch the sea breezes, and if the room overlooks the main street, the alive sounds and smells of the city. My only complaint is the lack of a super soft pillow. Now this place is not the Ritz-Carlton in which I have stayed more than once. I view hotels as a place to store your stuff while exploring the local environment and sleep when that time arrives. I am a guy with Spartan needs and a thin pocket book – I actually much prefer this hotel to the pretentious overpriced, high-end hotels in which I have stayed while traveling on business. For me and presumably people with my needs and tastes in hotels this place is 5-Star accommodations. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great bargain in accommodations with a great location in Vancouver. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
It was clean but noise outside a lot of car traffic etc but it was Grey Cup weekendGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is outdated but clean. Le location is great but the parking situation is terrible. Parking was extremely difficult, specially when it is time to get out of it: steep and not a lot of space to maneuver. There was also a leak of water.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for Long-Term stay"
English Bay Hotel is located in the most ideal spot for a long term stay by the beach. The kitchen was fully provisioned and the staff were friendly. The hotel was badly maintained however, very dusty and water damage was evident on the elevator doors. The bathroom had to have the door carved along the edge so it would close. The carpet is very old […] and the smell of the corridors was unbearable. Not much in the lobby- for its location, it needs to upgrade. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was close to beach shops fast food out let's , staff friendly , room was clean and with the cooking facility's element value , a bit out dated but that didn't matter as everything worked and beds comfortable wifi fast , we enjoyed our stay here very muchGenuine Expedia guest review
"A bit sketchy!"
Needed to find a hotel close to where I was teaching, it wasn't close at all. Room was clean, but needed a lot of work i.e.: cracks in the walls, shower didn't work ... Hotel staff was cold and always seemed put off. It did have a nice view of the ocean and close to many restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
downtown Vancouver hotel, close to everything, outdated but a big room with bathroom and kitchenetteGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Bustling and lively location"
Clean spacious suite. In the heart of a bustling coastal area. Good beds and blackout blinds. A bit noisy, but to be expected downtown. Very close to beach. Well equipped basic kitchen, with freezer. Close to bus stop. Would recommend English Bay Hotel; don't be put off by dated appearance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Close to beach, room was clean and comfortable. Newly renovated. We used the underground parking, it was a little tight but secureGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not meant to be a hotel ..."
... but a studio apartment. Extra space before the washroom, large kitchen & acrobatic parking.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good time in English Bay"
hotel was okay. At first I thought it could be a little grotty from the condition of the lobby, but the room was clean, quiet and had everything we needed. Two big beds, clean linens, coffee etc. I would use the hotel again. If you are looking for something posh, this is not the hotel. But it served our purpose.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"a fantastic bang for your buck!!"
We really enjoyed our stay. The location is unsurpassed for west end excitement. Although the hotel is base in facilities, the staff and room were more than I expected for the star level. The rooms are large and the beds very comfy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"An ok hotel"
Lived in for 6 days everything is not extremely good but okGenuine Expedia guest review
Hotel is in good location, but parking garage is wayyy too tight and awkward to get into. Rooms are spacious, but gross-feeling and smell weird. Place looks shady and i couldn't help but feel like i was getting jipped. Would NOT book here ever again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Not a marvelous hotel but its location is ideal and the price unbeatable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"all around good affordable hotel"
Checked into my hotel room around 9am and pleased to find was available early. My room was clean and tidy. Plenty of space. Had a nice sized kitchen and bathroom with small fridge. Room had one double bed and one single bed with about 32" LCD tv. Room wasn't anything fancy but functional. Suited my needs just fine. One living room chair needed replacement […] since cushion was damaged. But I didn't mind really as I just watched TV laying on the bed. Had kitchen table with chairs. I traveled around on foot or by bus so didn't have any experience with the parking. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the downtown area"
The rates are reasonable for this location - it's a good spot for families who want to be close to Stanley Park and other attractions. Rooms are spacious and have kitchens that are well equipped. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable, however some of the furniture needed to be replaced - it was very worn. I did notice that some rooms were being […] renovated.

"Overnight Front desk staff dazed and confused."
The guy at the front desk was amazed that I wanted to check in after midnight. Even though I'd already paid for the room through expedia. He was rude and spacey and while we were there he argued with another poor lady who just wanted him to call her a taxi for her and her suitcase.Genuine Expedia guest review
I liked the location, the room was nice though could be cleaner, specially the kitchen floor.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
very good location, close to stanley park, beach, shopping mall, restraunts. kitchenet is a plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to English Bay beach"
I would recommend the hotel for its location - lots of restaurants and coffee shops nearby, good access to the walkway to Stanley Park sea wall, only 20 minutes walk to downtown Granville and Robson, supermarket only five minutes away- but not so much for the hotel itself. The room I had was right above Denham but still fairly quiet. The room needs […] some updating but was clean and neat. Good internet connection. If you are looking for a lower end hotel with a great location, this will work. They have kitchenettes which will help with the budget. I was satisfied with what I got and would go back.

"Nice hotel close to English Bay"

"Is it possible to get a refund?"
Can we get a refund if possible? We have not stayed as the hotel environment was not family friendly. We wanted parking desperately as we had a kid travelling but the hotel has parking only on first come basis that was not communicated earlier.Genuine Expedia guest review
