This property is at the east end of "East Beach" area of White Rock, BC and is right on Marine Drive, separated from the water front by the road and the railroad tracks. We were a little confused as to where to stay from some of the descriptions listed and finally chose this hotel for its location and as a good place to start for someone unfamiliar with the area. We live in the Seattle area and are frequent visitors to British Columbia, but we have always bypassed White Rock on the way to Vancouver, Victoria or Whistler. White Rock is barely across the international border and we had actually been through there earlier on the train on our way to embarking on a cruise out of Vancouver, it looked like an interesting place to visit and we finally did.
Ocean Promenade is a small hotel, with 3 floors above the main floor -- our room had a water view. The room was a typical "linear" room with the entry-bathroom-beds-sitting area-window layout found in the vast majority of hotel/motels around. There was deck outside our window but that was accessible only from the adjoining unit. One unusual thing was that you used your key card which let you into a small vestibule with two doors to either the "a" or the "b" unit -- ours was the "b" unit, only slightly inconvenient.
The staff was pleasant and accommodating and the room was clean and the beds comfortable. Some have down-rated this property due to the close proximity to the railroad and passing trains. We did not find this to be objectionable and didn't hear any whistles at night or passing trains for that matter and this is on the main line between Seattle and Vancouver.
