I stayed at the Met for 2 nights on business. It's an old property, so rooms are a bit small and there are few AC outlets. I used the extension cord for the coffee maker to plug in my laptop at the desk. Sound dampening is so-so, and noisy neighbours were audible. Location is right next to the Columbia Skytrain...

We were in Vancouver to see a hockey game and didn't want to spend a lot of money on accommodation when we would be in the room so little. With the sky train station a few doors away, the met was a great location (especially carrying sleeping kids home from the train). Great price and good location, don't expect anything...

Check in was good, Room was clean, and included a microwave and fridge, bed was comfortable. Was a little noisy in the front of building as the pub is nearby, but it was quiet later on. Hotel is beside the sky train station as well.

The entrance looks a bit shady, but once you get to the room its actually really nice! I was surprised to say the least. It works out to less than $80 CAD a night, which is pretty decent, and you can usually find an available room within the hour. Parking is a little tricky in the area, but if you're...

My room wasnt cleaned propperly, and made me ill, The staff yelled at me because of his own problems. When I asked to speek with Management, he refused.

The Met Hotel management finds this a difficult review to respond to. We provided the guest every courtesy and acted in a professional manner for the guest's entire 24 night stay. As far as we are concerned everything that could possibly be done to ensure a pleasant stay was provided from our staff. Regards, The Met Hotel

Very comfortable and pleasant accommodations for the (low) price. Good service, helpful staff, clean and well-appointed rooms. Best of all, you can bring your dogs along! (For a modest additional fee.) To a New Westminster newcomer the area around the entrance looks a little seedy, but in fact we never even got panhandled, much less hassled. There is a refrigerator...

Dear Mr. Brewer Thank you for the nice review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that your 4 legged friend also enjoyed their stay. As you mentioned we do have parking across the street but it is not included in the price but is an additional $10 per night. Our location is very central and...

We stayed here for work and we were on a tight budget, so it worked well for us. Rooms had nice high ceilings, and were nice and clean, but backed onto a skytrain station and were a bit loud until it stopped running for the night. The neighborhood is a bit rough at night, we were there on a Sat...

Great price, great customer service, great size rooms, great cleanliness. I stayed here with my girlfriend for one night and we honestly didn't expect much, but what we got was a great hotel, at a great price.

Price was the major factor in considering this hotel. Between the room, parking and dog we paid less than half of anything in Vancouver. The room was nice but the cleanliness left something to be desired.

We were looking for a clean, quiet, reasonably priced hotel room on a long weekend and the Met fit the bill. Friendly helpful desk staff. Stay away from the dingy smelly smoky pub and head down the street to eat.

Thank you for review we appreciate all the feedback we receive. I am wondering about the issue with the pub. Like us they are 100% smoke free and we usually get excellent reviews on the food and service. Thank you once again,
