My mom and I stayed here December 23rd as we were flying out of YVR early Christmas Eve morning. I had asked for a quiet room, so they put us in a room at the end of the hall on the second floor and it was great!! We didn't hear anything!!
We took public transit from the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal right to the hotel which was great, and then used the hotel shuttle to get to the airport at 4:30AM (we missed the 4am shuttle by about 5 minutes). Guest services at check in and check out was great! They tried to help us print off our boarding passes online before we checked out which was nice!
January 3rd we stayed here again on the return of our trip as our flight arrived too late for us to take the fery back home. We asked to stay in the same room as our first stay and as it was available we were able to do so.
The only minor complaint was that the remote didn't seem to really work.

For the price, I would definitely stay here again!

Hmmmm....totally average airport hotel. Air Canada provided this accommodation due to missed flight connection...so I shouldn't complain. Bed was comfortable but I stripped it before climbing in. Blankets were those foam/polyester type. Bedspread was old. Very dated decor in my room.
Water pressure good. Convenient shuttle to airport. Front desk staff were friendly. Chain restaurant attached to hotel, nothing special.
If Sandman invested a lot of money this could become a prime 'boutique' type hotel. Location is great...and the hotel actually looks fine from the outside.

Just one night's stay on December 21st.
After long flight from U.K. this was ideally situated only 15 mins from airport.The shuttle came to bus stop in 10 mins without us having to phone.
The busy restaurant was fine that night - cheery staff made us very welcome, and breakfast the next day was enormous.
A good night's sleep with no traffic or airport noise was all we asked, and it delivered.
The surrounding area is hardly scenic but it's only 30 mins to downtown Vancouver.

We stayed at this hotel for one night coming back from SE Asia. And it was a great place to stay overnight after such a long flight(from Vietnam). When we arrived at the Vancouver airport we called the shuttle service to the hotel(it came promptly-it comes every half hour anyways). This is free of charge. We encountered very friendly front desk staff, the room was very clean, had a good tv, good alarm clock, excellent bathroom, and was very quiet even though it is fairly close to the airport. There is a restaurant attached to the hotel(I think its a Ricky's) and there is also a tim hortons across the street, amongst a few other restaurants. We got a check out at 12 pm the next day and took the free shuttle to the airport. Beds were very comfortable, and we slept very well. We got a really good rate on this room as we booked it on Travelocity using the Top Secret Hotels link(specified near Vancouver airport). A great place to stay if in between flights, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Very friendly service.

The rooms are dated but reasonably clean. The shuttle service runs every half hour so, if you miss it on your way in, you may have to wait for a while under the cold Vancouver rain. The only outstanding feature is the very nice restaurant on the premices. Its great to be able to have a nice dinner without having to leave the building

Stayed here the night before a flight out of Vancouver Airport. No problems, friendly staff and room was fine - perhaps a little on the small side but clean.

Easy trip to the airport with the shuttle.
