Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Looking for a hotel "deal" when conducting business in Vancouver can certainly present some interesting surprises! With many hotels in the $400+ range, finding value in the $200- range can often be fraught with numerous concerns. This hotel is excellent value! For a business traveller, they hit (for me) all the pertinent requirements:

Food: The attached restaurant (Italia Bella) was a truly wonderful dining experience! There is a wide range of food experiences from fast food, trendy coffee shops or fine dining all within a short walk or cab ride.

Room: Small but clean and comfortable with a desk sizeable enough to work on

Internet: Solid enough that I had no issues, even with video conferencing.

Location: This was near my client, so it was perfect. I found the neighbourhood and general area to be clean and never experienced any situation where I felt uncomfortable or unsafe.

Our family stayed here for just a night to get some rest after visiting Vancouver Island, before heading to our next destination. What a lovely hotel in a great location! Although we stayed in downtown for a few nights prior to heading to Vancouver Island – I think we preferred this location over downtown. It felt cozy, clean and not as busy, next to a grocery store, many restaurants, park and a few breweries (which we visited in the evening), yet very peaceful. Convenient underground parking with plenty of spaces was included with our booking. Immaculately clean, spacious room with comfy beds and everything you need when away from home. Clean and spacious bathroom with nice toiletries (loved the Orangy scent!). Keurig coffee machine was a nice bonus while getting ready to leave in the morning.
After check out, when we were about to drive off, our son realized he forgot his laptop in the room. He run back to the reception and asked to check and bring it back.. While we were waiting for laptop to be brought downstairs, the concierge asked us if we would like to use their breakfast services (mind you our reservation did NOT include breakfast). We kindly denied, noting that we were already behind the schedule with a long drive ahead of us and our son sloppiness added some time while waiting to retrieve his laptop. Can you imagine that this kind gentleman (front desk) gave us a few bags with simple “breakfast to go”, marked as “Chef Special”  That was such a cute, nice, unexpected and thoughtful gesture, which we truly appreciated!
We had a perfect night rest and would absolutely stay here again!

Clean quiet hotel close to several hospitals so perfect if your travel is for medical reasons Parking can be challenging as their underground space is limited and first come first served (this is clearly stated on their website). Small courtyard offers a nice space to sit and enjoy your morning coffee. Attached Italia Bella Bar & Grill offers breakfast, lunch, and dinner so you don't need to go far to grab a bite.

The location of this hotel is great for accessing all that Vancouver has to offer. Free parking included makes it perfect too. The heating system is a little loud, but everything else about this hotel made it 5 stars. Lots of great good along main and kingsway and broadway, shopping, breweries... If you are in Vancouver on Business or pleasure, the location is great, and definitely a lot more affordable than most of the hotels downtown.

We checked in and our shower/bath and sink drain was plugged so they sent someone up the next day to fix the drains and when we came back to the room they had left a wire coat hanger on out items/bags in the bathroom not very safe due to covid-19. The front desk staff were very friendly and excellent service. We also did not get enough towels for 4 people for each day. We had to contact the front desk about the towel situation each day. We did not eat meals at the restaurant next door as one person was only in the restaurant for at least 4 hours as we were walking around the city and each time we went by the restaurant that person was still there.

We found this hotel in a quiet neighborhood away from the city noise. Clean but a little bit older. We had an issue with the room doors closing with a loud bang. This is normal and understandable for most hotels due to security and fire regulations. But we were visited by the desk manager saying that we were letting the door bang since someone had complained on our floor. Well if these heavy doors are engineered to close that way than than the hotel should put in softer closing springs so they don’t close with a bang. Didn’t appreciate the neighbor next door giving my teenage niece an earful. Manager should know better.
Also Parking is $15 at hotel but save yourself some money and park for free after 4 on the street.

We stayed August 2020 with teenagers. We appreciated the low nightly cost and the free parking. The location was great for driving to and from areas as well as lots within walking distance.

We were happy with their Covid protocols and felt safe our entire stay.

The only small complaint was the location of the AC. It was right beside one bed at bed level. One person was cold and everyone else was hot.

We will definatly stay here again.

My wife and I have been staying here for almost twenty years. The staff has always been attentive and quick to respond. The rooms are always clean and tidy. The location can't be beat. We've stayed at a few other hotels in Vancouver over the years but always come back to this one. It's by far our favourite in the Vancouver area.

The parking is FREE and that in itself is a rarity in downtown Vancouver these days. This makes the value even better for an already great hotel.

Although the gym is closed and free breakfasts are out, this hotel was excellent. Room is clean, good air-conditioning, comfy beds and Keurig coffee. Small fridge and microwave was appreciated. The bathroom is upscale with granite and lovely orange scented amenities.
Did I mention free parking, albeit small spots, if you have a large vehicle let them know when booking. Luckily ours is small!
The staff were friendly, went out there way to help us stay comfortable (we were here for a family emergency) and the entire staff are taking Covid seriously. We felt safe and secure here.
To top it off, their rates are awesome as well!
Adjacent to the hotel is a mall with a supermarket and many restaurants around the area.
Bravo, Best Western!

The hotel is very well located but what makes its different is the interaction with the owners and front office staff. Very friendly , efficient and helpful in equal measure. Nothing was too much trouble and the multiple bag , multiday storeage offer was very handy given bag and weightvrestrictions on flights to the Yukon.

I don’t know about a debit card; call the hotel to make sure. But I cannot believe that they would not take Canadian cash. We always use a credit card that does not charge foreign transaction fees when we travel internationally.
