This is a nice place; friendly staff, good breakfast, great bed, high bathroom counter, large walk-in shower and lots of electrical plugins on the work desk and night tables. The ceiling in our first floor room must have been 12 feet high; no feeling cramped in this room.
Booking tip: don't stay on the first floor. On our first night we heard a lot of noise from the hallway; likely people walking to/from the exercise room. We also heard a fair bit of noise through the adjoining room door. The aroma of breakfast down the hall was also fairly strong in the morning.
We stayed here on a weekend after arriving from the nearby ferry terminal and we had events to go to in downtown Vancouver, White Rock and Cloverdale. The hotel's location was centered in roughly the middle of these three places so we were able to drive to all three easily. Keep in mind this hotel's location near the George Massey tunnel would be horrible during the evening rush hour if you are arriving from the south. I wouldn't stay here during the week since I don't want to spend my vacation time sitting in traffic. However, on weekends, there are no traffic issues.
