We stayed here due to its proximity to health care facilities. The house is a well preserved vintage house in a great neighbourhood. Rooms were small but very clean. We had out breakfasts in the adjoining B and B and they were very good. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
The 2nd bedroom right bedside laundry and furnace room. Furnace squeaked at night. Very noisy. Bathroom with filthy with full on fur on ceiling vent old hair on baseboards and filthy behind toilet. Old hair scrunched found under edge of bed. Just gross. Was quiet at night. Ceilings all coming apart carpets with torn edges. Left a day early.
Very nice, old house converted to bed and breakfast. Nice, clean, comfortable room. The staff was friendly, present, and very nice. Nice neighborhood. We only stayed one night, on our way to Banff via the train. They offered to book us a cab to take us to the train station. I would stay here again.
Given a three but it would be a 2 out of five for the accommodation and five out of five for the staff. The positives - the outside of the building is great from the front, it’s easy to get downtown and it’s in a nice safe neighbourhood of heritage houses. The staff we met were all very friendly and did their best to help. The negatives - you’ll find boarding houses like this all over the world. Style wise I bet it hasn’t changed since the 1970’s. We have bruised legs from the too big (hard) bed for the too small room. The sink wasn’t in the bathroom. There were numerous marks on the magnolia painted walls. It smelt overly flowery. Our bedsheets and towels weren’t changed at all and the WiFi was patchy. The building viewed from next doors porch at the back is very unkempt and the top back balcony looks structurally un sound. You have breakfast at the lodging house next door owned by the same people - the breakfast room looks out on a garden view of a crane, skip and rusting boat all kept in the backyard. The key issue with the place is just a lack of love. It’s marketed as a ‘beautiful guest house’. Sure the building is beautiful at the front but that’s where it all ends. It’s making money for someone who really doesn’t care enough about it to be bothered to make any changes. Which is a shame as with a bit of passion and vision it would be great. In terms of practicalities, it’s on the T subway Canada line that joins the airport to downtown Vancouver. The nearest stop is Broadway City Hall - just head out on Cambie towards the skyscrapers and it’s 5 minutes away from the lodge. There’s a huge supermarket just near the subway station.…
Small room with no space to walk. They call it bed and breakfast and ask you to pay for breakfast. Expedia booking never had a choice to exclude breakfast like they claim. Located in a old house with rooms adjacent to each other. Noise in one room can be heard in the other. Located close to busy Cambie street with noise of traffic all night. They don’t clean your room until you leave. Price of room is higher than normal hotel rooms. If you have a car stay in a normal hotel. Don’t waste time on this one.
We booked 10 nights at the Cambie Lodge. The room we had was a reasonable size with comfortable bed and basin in the room. The bathroom was adequate with large bath and over-bath shower but no shelf space. Shampoo and conditioner were provided. There was a small TV with cable channels. There was adequate storage for a suitcase and small number of clothes. No in-room coffee making facilities were provided. Breakfast was good and the staff were very pleasant. Unfortunately our last nights were ruined by the loud noise of a faulty fan in the next-door room which prevented us from sleeping for much of each night and we had to check out early and move elsewhere. The availability of staff is limited and no management seemed to ever be present. As a result the fan was not fixed over 2 days despite an assurance it would be.…
Room Quebec---steep steps to entrance steep steps to basement room if you are disabled or not strong forget it---on entering room Quebec we found we had no toilet or shower(shared along the corridor)---also had no towels or flannels provided to wash with also we had only one drinking glass ----Breakfast starts at 8.00 most visitors arrive for breakfast at this time hoping for an early start(7.00/10.00 would be much better)---the lady cooking the breakfast to order is stressed so when asked the simple question regarding the food answers more than once to the visitors(I am to busy to speak)---the owner or manager should be around sort out the smooth running off this good location B&B.
the room is super small, absolutely no room to unpack. No cupboard. no shelves. The door to the bathroom is really in your way. No shelves in the bathroom. As soon as you enter, the whole house smells of an elderly home, I think because of the carpets. Thats also the case in the rooms. The breakfast is included, and fresh. Allthough very american. Nothing healthy, exept some fruits, that are finished soon. Also low quality in the products. No fresh bread etc. Also noone was there who was really in charge. Someone let us in (after we called) and someone made breakfast. They cannot provide any information eigher regarding the B&B or public transport or where the closet xxxx is, etc. There was a laundry mashine, but you are not allowed to use is. Benefit: You can park there for free. Other wise, I would have prefered to pay even more and be in a cool hotel, that would have been even closer to the citycenter.…
Stayed for two nights. Small bed and breakfast establishment located within 5 mins walk of Transit system. Room comfortable and they kindly accommodated our early arrival. Not suitable for visitors with disabilities as 8 or so steps up to front door and luggage has to be carried up to upstairs rooms. Simple but adequate breakfast provided. Very comfortable bed. Carpets and paintwork looking tired. We were able to access much of the beautiful city of Vancouver easily on the Transit Day pass from there.
The Cambie Lodge is well situated for the city and airport. There is parking even though the street is very busy. The room was very comfortable. We didn't try the breakfast as we had to leave too early. Check in was quick and pleasant. Our only complaint was that there was no coffee or tea making facility even though we were next door to the kitchen (which had a Do Not Enter sign)
