“A little dated”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

Quick summary - this is not a bad hotel, just a little dated.

Taxi to the airport, from the hotel, is $30.

We stayed on the 6th floor. The room was quite dated (looks 10 years older than the photos).

There are excellent places to eat around the hotel, and the hotel is reasonable walking distance from either end of the island.

Saturday nights can be loud when the club downstair finishes for the night (but only for a couple of hours).

Location - the hotel is towards the end of the entertainment district. You will run into a lot of homeless people; they're harmless, but there are a lot of them.

Wifi was 50-50 in our room, but was fine in the corridor and lobby.

The hotel is nice, just a little dated.

Two of were driving round the world by trike, and were waiting for it to arrive in Vancouver by container from Vladivostok. We spent just over a week in this hotel, and were very pleased with the location, value, free gym membership, in fact everything about this hotel was perfect.
The duty manager, Mihaela, made us very welcome with complimentary breakfasts when she found out that we were doing our round the world trip for charity.
I would head straight for this hotel if I'm ever in Vancouver again.

Very good price and location.
Common areas are dirty and smelly, but the individual rooms are very clean.

My first and second stay at the Ramada on Granville was back in September. My wife and I loved it, so when we went back to Vancouver in Feb this little gem was on the top of our list for accommodations . As before the Duty Manager Mihaela and her staff were so very helpful. We could not be happier. Having a rental car posed no problem at all, parking was very safe and convenient to the hotel and when the lot was full the hotel attendant parked it for us. before Everyone made us feel so at home and were very helpful. Can't wait to go back. One more thing,
As before our stay would not have been complete without the amazing complimentary breakfast at the Morrissey Inn. The Morrissey is also fantastic in the evening with lots of character and a great wait staff our fav is Kat, she is such a delight.

Room Tip: We have had 3 different rooms and loved them all especially the one with a street view.
