We've been staying at this hotel for many years now and it never disappoints. Where else can you get a large suite for such a reasonable price, with such a convenient location AND free parking? Who cares if the decor is not "modern"? It's well-maintained and immaculate. The staff is friendly and helpful. Who cares if there's no dishwasher? Not us! We did our own dishes. What if the corridors are narrow? It's not like we're moving furniture in. We like walking to English Bay, Stanley Park, and Denman and Robson Streets. We can do it here. Also close to ferry connections to Granville Island. There's a Starbucks close by. The bed is comfortable, there's plenty of horizontal space on the counter in the bathroom and lots of storage space. The shower works well (it comes with a bathtub, but we used only the shower). You get comfy, fluffy terry bathrobes and slippers. The internet connection is great. You can spend the morning, as we did, sipping coffee and reading the paper or checking your e-mail. We'll be back yet again.

This may not look like much when you first enter the hotel, but the room was perfect! Very deceiving! After spending several nights in hotels that were sub-standard, the Sunset was a welcome surprise!

Me, my husband, and six-year-old son went to Vancouver for the Fourth of July and stayed at the Sunset Inn based upon the reviews on this site. (No, we aren't communists, we are Navy)

First, this isn't like your traditional chains. It is clearly an apartment building converted to a hotel. The lobby is tiny, the 'continental' breakfast leaves a lot to be desired and there is no place to eat so you have to take it back to your room. And parking.....what to say about parking. They have about 10 spaces that can actually be used and 5 spaces only big enough for a very small car. It is secure, which is nice, but I have a big scratch in my car thanks to a parking spot that butts up against the building. And I spent about 45 minutes trying to get out of another. There is no pool, ice and vending only on the main floor, and small, sometimes slow elevators.

These issues aside, the hotel is in the heart of Vancouver and centrally located within walking distance of the major tourist activities (Big Bus tours, Granville island ferry, aquatics Center). Within a block, you will find a Starbucks, a Denny's, and a large drug store that is open late.

We stayed on the 8th floor in an Executive Suite (a one bedroom apartment). Very comfortable bed and nice, Art Deco decor. It had a balcony with plastic chairs and each suite had its individual A/C unit. Large suite with all the amenities, full cable, and full kitchen.

WORD OF CAUTION for families and religious. This area is in the heart of the 'rainbow' district. The streets are lined with rainbow flags and sidewalks. Kinda fun but there are also a few storefronts where we had to shield our sons eyes. We found a friendly church five blocks away too. Lol.

This place was perfect for our stay In Vancouver. It was walking distance to the water taxis, Granville Island and Stanley Park. The staff was very friendly and very accommodating...arrived early at 10am from an Alaskan Cruise and we were able to check-in early without any problems...when we checked out, we didn't need to be at the airport until 5pm and they gladly held our luggage so we could explore Vancouver. The room was HUGE with a large living room and side kitchen...very comfortable. I would definitely stay at this location if ever in Vancouver again. It was a great price, free parking, free breakfast, comfortable, and well located.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sunset Inn!

Pros-
Great location- one block from Davies street with heaps of cafes/shops, two blocks from the harbour, and a couple of kms from Stanley Park
Great staff- the staff were very helpful in suggesting places to eat and things to do.
Room- was very clean and good size

Cons- this is pretty minor, didn't bother us at all really
Small parking area- if you have a big vehicle, it is a tight parking area
