Good location, bad hotel

Posted Aug 25, 2014
On paper, this place looks fine. Basically you are getting an old converted apartment building with very little ammenities. The staff was not very helpful and no one was ever at the front desk. Cons: no ac, door lock was broken so you have to slam the door to lock it. Staff was not very nice. Parking was a small garage that is hard to move around in. Room was very dingy. Pros: in room kitchen, location, free wifi, free parking.

Perfect location

Posted Aug 17, 2014
Enjoyed our stay at the Oceanside. Friendly staff, perfect location. The space was great for our family of 4, very light and bright! Able to walk around seawall, easy access to transit and free parking for our car. Would recommend and plan to use it again when next in Vancouver

Great location.

Posted Jul 27, 2014
Pros: Our room (suite) was spacious and has a bedroom, kitchen and fridge.
Location: Near beach and Stanley Park.
It is close to English Bay Beach and downtown. Lots of restaurants near by. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Room and furniture are a bit dated but comfortable. First night we were there, the hotel and room smelled awful.

Excellent location

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Location and proximity to CBD and tourist attractions
Cons: Cleanliness of rooms; more staff are needed to make the rooms more presentable. Also updating of linens, blankets and bedding help.
Location: Brilliant - close to Stanley Park, the beach for swimming and other water activities, down town shopping and ferries.
Great for families; separate rooms for sleeping, dining, cooking and sitting. The only thing we were disappointed in was the lack of general cleanliness of the rooms. Carpets need attention a good shampoo would help also new bedding as these are well out of their use by date. Overlooking these points the space was excellent for a family and its proximity to tourist attractions excellent.

Not a detail oriented kind of hotel

Posted Jul 10, 2014
The service staff were friendly and helpful but they couldn't overcome the general lack of cleanliness and bare necessities at the hotel. It was a spacious room and the location is as good as it gets in Vancouver. If they improve their eye for detail this could be a sneaky deal of a place but until I see otherwise I'm afraid I'll have to pass.

Comfortable, but needs renewing

Posted Jul 8, 2014
The location is very good, close to the beach and restaurants and Stanley park. The room was big, bedroom and kitchen . Very comfortable, but the furniture need badly to be renewed as well as the carpets etc. the neighborhood is quiet.

Pros: Location - free parking
The stay at the hotel was very satisfactory. Its location is unbeatable, It is near beach, park and lots of restaurants. We found it to be decent, clean, pet-friendly and very comfortable. Walking distance to everywhere. We hardly used our car. Staff very friendly.

4th July overnight from Seattle

Posted Jul 7, 2014
Pros: Liked having a kitchen though we did not have family with us this time...would be fine next time.
Cons: Could do with a little updating on fixtures
The room was perfectly acceptable for us. The fixtures a little old but the place was clean and spacious....also trade off modernity for location. Great spot.

Affordable Suite in a Nice Part of Town

Posted Jul 6, 2014
The staff is very friendly and helpful. While the building is older, they always seem to be renovating something. Our suite was a good size and the kitchen was nice. I think the only downside is the carpeting. It's some kind of brown/green institutional carpeting -- the kind that looks dirty even when new. I have no doubt that it's cleaned regularly, but it looks and feels iffy. Not a big deal. Free parking (?!) and WiFi round out the package.
