There were so many negative reviews that we were a bit concerned. Even so we booked strictly on price through Expedia and we were pleasantly surprised. Yes the hotel is showing its age and is definitely not a 5 start hotel but the room, which is most important, was everything it should be with the exception of no fridge. The check-in staff were great - the check-out person wasn't so pleasant but that was a minor issue. Their shuttle leaves every 1/2 hour 24 hours a day - a lot of hotels don't start until 4am. There is a White Spot on site and another bar/restaurant on site as well. Overall we were pleased and will stay here again if we're flying out of Vancouver as long as the price is right.

We arrived around 1:30 but were advised that we couldn't check in for a few hours, so we asked for a recommendation for a seafood restaurant nearby. Upon our return, they wouldn't allow me to check in without them speaking to my husband first, since I had made all our Expedia reservations under his name. I advised that we'd been travelling for 3 weeks and this was the first hotel that insisted on this. My husband was in the rear parking lot repacking our suitcases since we were going home the next day. It was quite frustrating (as a senior) to have to go to the vehicle and get my husband, but the front desk woman insisted on it. The hotel otherwise was good, with a relatively small room but close to the airport. Breakfast was the usual hotel fare, but brownie points go to the lady who was manning the waffle iron. She took my order and brought it to our table, although she called the pancake syrup maple syrup which it wasn't. The breakfast room was quite large with additional seating in a glassed-in area.
