The hotel has a good price for budget travellers wanting to stay pretty close to Vancouver Centre, but other then that there's no reason to stay there. Personel ( desk and cleaners) were very friendly, but the room lacked any comfort. No refrigerator, no microwave, no double glazing ( and on Main Street means traffic from early morning to late...

Don't go!! My husband had bed bug bites all over him. I wish we had checked these reviews before staying. We were given a refund in the morning but have spent so much time cleaning our stuff to ensure we don't bring bugs home. It may be cheap, but it's not worth it! Additionally, the evening staff person was super... More

Most disgusting motel ever! Do not step foot in this he!!-hole. I would not recommend this place to my worst enemy. Filthy, spiderwebs everywhere, and the room reeked of bug spray. It obviously didn't work because there are bedbugs. This place should have been demolished 20 years ago. Horrible, horrible, horrible!!!! I would give minus 100 stars if it were... More

Unfriendly stuff #1. The host greeted us with head nods and basic one word answers and was unwilling to offer any help. Beds were so so while the pillow were terrible, pretty useless. Only positive thing about the motel is its location. Stay away if you are looking for anything above 'below average'.

We Stayed for 5 days. Good price for the location. Very very basic room. No shampoo or conditioner, fridge or coffee pot. Charged for ice and was only given one roll of toilet paper at a time. Completely fenced in ..therefore inaccessible to non guests. Great air conditioner.

Checking in and in my usual cheery attitude and that went to a bad mood in seconds. One word answers and a sour expression from the clerk. I had 4 days booked and immediately wanted to check out after one. I have come to expect things like a hair dryer and shampoo and did not pack this but all I... More

First of all: If you are looking for a place to stay for a night or two (not more), the place is ok. And it is cheap (relatively). Nice: You can park your car for free and take the bus downtown. But the room smelled awfully, the bathroom even worse. The AC was insufficient, the bathroom was very old and... More

After 1 night, my wife woke up early because her skin started to itch and guess what. We saw at least 3 bed bugs on the mattress (some already dead and full of blood.)!

Staying in Southeast False Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
Southeast False Creek
Developed alongside the Vancouver Olympic Village for the 2010 Winter Games, a past fraught with hardship has recently been overcome, and builders are changing the landscape on the ground of Southeast False Creek at a rapid pace. With waterfront dining, ultra-modern facilities, sports stadiums, and a load of greenery, parks, and rest spots built into the ever-changing infrastructure, it's a fast-paced and mutable spot to see Vancouver taking shape and making history. It is especially popular for the casual sportsman, as the Seawall on the water makes for one of the most scenic locations for cycling or roller-blading, jogging or strolling.
