Convenient location, but...

Posted Nov 2, 2015
Pros: Location
Cons: Cleanliness, tv/cable, more electrical outlets, wifi could be faster
Convenient location, easy check-in and check-out. Room small, bed comfortable. Bathroom okay, shower not overly clean. TV or cable (not sure which) didn't work. Very few electrical outlets.

One of the worst motels...

Posted Oct 25, 2015
Pros: Nothing.
Cons: Tear it down.
Canada typically has lower standards of accommodations than other developed countries. After all, jails in Norway seem to provide more comfort than the average motel in Canada. This one was particularly bad, however. First, I had to wait parked in front of lobby because the clerk was gone. When I got to the room, it reeked of cigarette smoke, although it was supposed to be non-smoking. After my shower, I had to go into my truck to get my own towel as whatever was provided was more like tea towels than anything used to dry oneself. Then, the night was a nightmare. The people next door, who appear to have been there on a more permanent basis, spent the whole night screaming, slamming doors, and other similar activities. Every time I fell asleep, I would be woken up in a panic, by insane noise (and I was wearing earplugs). Quite frankly, I have never experienced other people having so much disregard for people next door. When I checked out, clerk had to go check the room for damage before returning my $200 security deposit (on the high side, considering I wouldn't have purchased the room for ownership for that price). So, I sat in chair in the lobby, but was told that I would have to go wait outside...! So, I was essentially kicked out and had to go wait standing outside while he went to check the room. Obviously, I didn't sleep. A complete waste of money. And for those who think coughing up $90 after tax for such a dive is value, they have lost touch with reality.

Film Hot Spot & Close to Skytrain

Posted Sep 9, 2015
Pros: It provided what I needed for the few nights I was there; A bed, washroom, shower, etc.
Cons: Better beds and improved bathroom facilities (as the toilet was not fully functional)
Location: I enjoyed the convenience of having vending machines by the office and stores nearby. The skytrain was only a 8 minute walk so it helped alot.
We selected this location because it was a walkable distance to the nearest Skytrain. I love the Motel because of it's frequent use in films and television and its history. The room we got was fine, we weren't expecting a luxury room.

This hotel is very old and in very poor condition. It does not have air conditioning and is way very uncomfortable to sleep in due to the heat.

Nothing fancy. You get what you pay for.

Pros: The History!
Location: 24 hr Church's Chicken next door. If you like Church's Chicken. It's close to public transit. Staff was excellent.
Over night stay. Not there for long. Travelling by public transit. Didn't want to pay $250 plus taxes elsewhere for maybe a 9 hr stay.

Historic hotel that is outdated.

Posted Aug 20, 2015
Cons: Pretty much everything, especially the wifi.
Location: Located in a poor neighborhood that was very dirty compared to the rest of the city that is probably the cleanest in the world.
This hotel is old and featured in a lot of TV shows including the X-Files, but it has not been refurbished since the 1950s, The furniture is original and the chair in my room was very heavily stained. I put a towel on it to sit down. The carpet was also stained. Their is no air conditioning and the temperatures were in the 80s. The window would open, but only about eight inches. There is no ice machine and when you ask for ice the staff will hand you a small ice bucket that is half full. I guess that it was just too much effort to fill it completely. There is no electronic key and they hand you a very large old fashioned key you have to carry around with you. The TV was an old tube TV on a stand that took up a large section of the room. This hotel also demands that you put up a $200 deposit on check in. I have never had any hotel charge me that much for a deposit. Why? Nothing in the room is worth $200. Certainly not all the furniture combined. I came back to my room at 3:30 and it had not been made up. I was given a room on the east side and in the morning my car was eventually blocked in by film crew that was filming a TV episode in a room past the next room. There was around 50 people hanging around until late and they made a lot of noise. Why was I given a room that they knew would be surrounded by these people? Furthermore, the Wifi was extremely poor and spotty and I was only able to connect for a short period of time over my two day stay.

Motellstandard 10 min från stadskärnan.

Posted Aug 19, 2015 on Hotels
En övernattning i väntan på ett tidigt flyg. Det var positivt bl a för att man lätt tog sig till flyget. Området upplevdes som genuint, inte alls turistigt. Det fanns dock ingen service på motellet förutom att receptionen var öppen dygnet runt. Relativt lätt att hitta dit och hyfsat gott om matställen i närheten. Rummet kändes instängt och röklukten var påtaglig, inte bra...! Prisvärt? Nja..!
