A great place to stay. It doesn't look like much from the outside. You do have to park on the street for free from 8:00 pm to 8:00 am. The lobby is plain. But the room. WOW. Big, spacious and clean. Great value for the money.

Far from downtown Vancouver, but literally on top of the Skytrain, Columbia station making the city accessible within a short 20-25 min. train ride. Being so close to the station...one may think it would be noisy and hard to sleep - quite the contrary as we found the noise to be minimal at best; our room was on the 4th...

Thank you for your kind comments about our little hotel in New Westminster. It sounds like you really took advantage of all that we have to offer as well as the central location of the hotel. Having the Sky train right at the hotel is a big advantage to our guests. Cleanliness, location and pricing are what we strive for...

Stayed here for 10 days in total. Lovely place friendly staff. Jennie at front desk was very helpful. Hotel is abit tired but still nice. The sky train is just next door. To get into vancouver city. One day pass will get you on buses and the sea bus to North vancouver. Starbucks is just a 2 minute walk away.

Based on reading favourable reviews here on Trip Advisor we made our decision to stay here for several nights. While the hotel is centrally located in New Westminster, adjacent to a Skytrain station, the area is very sketchy at night. In fact the front door is locked at 11:00 p:m and their is no staff present ! Built in 1892...

We were able to book an entire floor of rooms for my daughter's wedding. The private common area was wonderful for hanging out after the wedding as well as meeting up the next morning before checking out. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is a little dated and tired, but the beds were amazingly comfortable and the a/c...

Clean, functional, but impossibly NOISY. The pub next door was so loud with yelling/talking/laughing that I gave up on sleeping, while my husband survived with earplugs (which i couldn't wear cause I had a 2 month old to listen for). The hole in the window for the AC may be wholly or only partially responsible. But, I could feel the...

While we got a decent deal on this stay, I have to say, I would have been happier to spend a bit more and have a more comfortable experience. It ended up being stressful and I didn't sleep well. This hotel is definitely haunted. I woke up in the middle of the night with that very clear, distinct feeling, and...

An aging mid-range hotel. Great front office staff. Clean spacious rooms. Outstanding Wifi. Everything could use a coat of paint or a bit of maintenance. The bathrooms are old and in need of a redo. The lobby looks like a back alley. The rooms in the back enjoy the arrival and departure of the Skytrains - every 5 minutes.
