This seems to be the only oceanfront hotel, at least in East Beach White Rock. We came to stay, having twice passed through White Rock by train and thought it looked worth a visit. As most trains in small Canadian towns pass the Main Street and we had travelled by train, we knew the line was immediately next to the promenade and before the marine road and first line of buildings, and so might be noisy.
The Booking.com site offered a king or two queen bed room as standard, so we booked the former, only to discover that this meant a room overlooking the back and service area. The receptionist did change our oom to a lager and two queen room partially overlooking the oceanfront. The downside was that it was the " junior" room to another that could be let as a suite, so our window directly looked onto the other room's balcony.
The room itself was clean, light and modern. The bed was comfortable, the a/ c masked he train noise ( and the horn is not sounded at night). There was a fireplace, coffee skier, fridge,free wi fi, telephone and a large flatscreen TV. Good storage with mirrored doors and which added to the light and apparent size of the room. The bathroom was well equipped and clean and modern.
We paid $10 to park the car underground, perhaps a little high but there was metered parking on the nearby streets.
We did not eat at the hotel coffee shop.
We were quite surprised to read the negative reviews of rooms and which did not match our experience at all.
