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.

Great view of downtown Vancouver. Comfortable rooms, reasonably priced. Well connected by transit buses to all places in Vancouver.
Well maintained, homely meals.

My boyfriend and I went to Vancouver for 8 days in May and stayed at Shaugnessy Village, it's in a good area, the hospital is close, close to the businesses on Broadway. The staff is helpful and friendly. They let you see the room they picked out for you and if you don't like you they'll give you another one. Be wary though, the single rooms can be a little small if it's for 2 people especially if you have individual luggage because the rooms are a bit narrow.
Overall good experience, the breakfast vouchers definitely came in handy.

I have just spent 6 nights at the Shaughnessy Village Bed and Breakfast, and I admit that I liked it. Reception staff has always been very polite to me.
They have a strange checkin procedure, you may visit your room first, and thereafter you need to go back down to complete the check-in. As a guest I may expect a 'finished' room, and that all rooms are moreless equal. So why that effort?
My room was expectedly small, but featured a bathroom with a tube, a balcony, a fully furnished kitchen and a wallbed (bed and couch in one).
I don't know why people complain about the size, it's advertised as B&B, and they even state the size of the rooms. As a guest paying daily rates, you are entitled to breakfast vouchers, which can be redeemed at the 12th Avenue restaurant, which is located in the house. You may choose between different types of omlettes and one cup of coffee. It's not much, but it is good to cover the first hunger in the morning.
Shaughnessy also offers a swimming pool, a jacuzzi, a nicely decorated garden and health club, which I didn't use.
Location is basically good, but you have to walk at least three blocks to reach a bus stop (Broadway). Unfortunately there is no good supermarket available.
Considering that the Shaughnessy is a B&B, it impressed me deeply. I only paid $65, but I had all the amenties mentioned, even a bath tube in my private bathroom. That's a lot in my opinion.

I inquired at Shaughnessy Village and was told they have apartment rentals. I was under the impression this was a business with short term and long term rentals. What it is is a really run down place with many social problems. I stayed there two months and many things were stolen. I came home one day and there was a business man who was in town for a week and left some things downstairs and they were stolen. He was at the front desk in quite a panic. I also was woken up at 4 am with a fire, a real one because they rent to people from skid row. These people have drug problems and while staying at shaughnessy village, all one could smell was pot, cigarette smoke and other offensive odors. It is supposed to be non-smoking but these people have "habits" and just don't go outside for example if it is raining. They stay up all night doing drugs and fight and start fires. It is not safe. And the people involved in this just changed rooms so there is no consequence like for example being asked to leave. There was also a woman who had the ambulance service there weekly and would get wasted and start screaming in the hallway. It is a super small space, the walls are thin, and it is awful They keep $100 for a maintenance fee although it wasn't painted when I moved in. I know people need a place to live so the government should help these people with proper social services because as it is they rent cheap accommodation and are left to their own devices of mental illness and substance abuse. There are other places that are also a decent price and I would suggest staying there because it just isn't safe for families or single woman. I went to the front desk to report a fist fight and nothing was done. This place is really troubled and the elevators are always broken. And the front desk staff laugh at the mentally ill people, and do not care or help. They are just not qualified to deal with social problems and mental illness.

Far too expensive, too smelly, too many drunk smelly old men yuk yuk yuk. There are still smoking rooms and the ventilation is so poor that it blows into your room too! Rooms are sooooooo small it's unbearable, not sound proof either. Some rooms have some cooking facilities however there is no cutlery, crockery or pots and pans provided! Nothing at all luxurious about it they should be sued for false advertising!! The decor is very dated and bad to start with, the health club is a few crappy old machines cramped into a little room, as for the Cybercafe it's one old computer in the corner of the restaurant which doesn't always work and costs $2.30 for 15mins!!!!! There are extra costs left right and centre for the laundry, parking, housekeeping etc etc. Most the staff were helpful, it's in a convenient location and it was clean thank goodness. Overall it comes highly unrecommended especially for a lengthy stay (more than one night that is!).

If yuo wish to find a cheaper place to stay go down the street to Douglas House or Windsor house Bed and Breakfeast's. Our stay at Shaughnessy Village Bed and Breakfest was worst then Terrible it was horendous there were dead fleas in the covers of the bed's it smelled of bug bomb or raid the room hadn'e been tended to in quite a while there were still signs of the previous persons who occuppied the room before me hair on a just barely swept and mopped bathroom there were even dead bed bugs in the chesterfeild / hidea bed the shower is just a trickle and don't let the photos fool you the pool is dirty the outdoor whirl pool is also dirty the work out area is not worth it it is all rusted and out of date the games is just a pool table with no billiard balls. The laundry room is clean but you can do better if you look around Dryers are two Loonies each and don't completly dry your towels the washers are also two dollers and don't fully agitate your cloathes it stalls for ten minutes and spins out to rinse and then doesn't fully extract your cloathes to suitable damp to put into your dryer. The food for breakfeast is terriable if the sprayed the rooms for infestation then you know they did the kitchen so is you like your food tasting like bug bomb then stay here.

S.V. is a good place to stay for one or two nights, but if you are planning to stay for a month or more, it's not really worth it.

If you are under 30, the Strata Complex (Not a hotel, not condominiums, not apartments) management treat you like a criminal. If something goes wrong in the building, and you're under 30, they confront you as if you were the perpetrator.

Also, they advertise luxurious rooms (Like on a cruise ship!). Now, I've never been on a cruise ship, and if the cabins on one are anything like these rooms, I'd rather stay at home. They are like living in a shoebox... You have to go outside to change your mind. This isn't too bad if you're only staying for one or two nights, but if you're there for a long term, it's very cramped.

The restaurant in the lobby is very good, the only beef I have with them is the one piece of toast that they give with the "Voucher Breakfasts." Is it really that much more expensive to put one more slice of bread in the toaster? Oh, and they have no straws for their beverages.

Stayed at the B & B at Shaugnessy Village before and aften an Alaskan Cruise. The grounds are lovely and the rooms are clean, each with a tiny balcony. The standard room is very narrow, like an RV, with a microwave, fridge, a small dinette and fold down double bed. Was fine for one night. After the cruise we stayed for 3 nights in a two room suite. We liked this one much better with the full size bed in a separate bedroom. The clientele seem to be a mix of senior citizens (who live there I think), students, and business travelers. Staff are friendly for the most part. The breakfast voucers are a nice addition. We'd probably stay there again if we couldn't get anything across the bridge right in the downtown area. The B&B is about a $10 (American) cab ride to the cruise terminal, about $20 to the Airport.

The hotel is on a busy street but is reasonably quiet through the night. If you are there with a car, everything is a convenient drive in any direction. Public transit is about three blocks away.

The front desk staff is cheerful and helpful. They gave me extra towels when I asked. They also provided an extra set of room keys on request. (There were two of us staying and we each had separate daytime appointments.)

Parking is an extra cost. I think it cheeky of any hotel, even a cheap one, to ask a parking fee.

The elevator often had the scent of cigarettes and alcohol.

The room is extremely small. I knocked my knees a few times getting in, out of, and around the bed even though I am quite small myself.

The room is tidy but apparently not dusted on a regular basis and I wondered if it had been vacumed recently.

Amenities are reasonable:

Anyone serious about their daily workout will laugh at the weight room, but it serves the purpose.

Sauna

Two jacuzzis - one in the basement, one outside with the swimming pool. --- The change room in the basement is a nicer place to have your daily shower than the bathroom in your own room.

The grounds are impeccably groomed and enjoyable on a nice day.

The hotel restaurant is convenient but only open from 7:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m. then open again later in the day for supper. I thought breakfast was greasier than it needed to be. My husband thought it was *okay*.
