I, being down in the area for school, had not even thought to reserve rooms at every location I would be staying(Its vancouver area, tonnes of hotels.. or so I thought). I had just gotten off my night shift(7am) and planned on driving to a hotel near the next location of my next shift in New Westminister(starting at 3:30pm same day). Driving to the New West area I had to pull over to nap; I was exhausted. When I finally got to the hotel I planned on staying at I was informed they were full. All the hotels were full. IT WAS A LONG WEEKEND. oops didn't notice that on the calendars. They sent me to another one thinking maybe a room was available. Still nothing; after calling around for me they found one, the Days Inn in Surrey. "They aren't as a high a class as our hotel though" the clerk warned me, "but if it were my daughter I would rather she goes there than her car". The car was my next option. After getting lost on the way over the bridge to Surrey I had a wee bit of trouble finding the place (maybe the sleep deprivation), it had to be accessed on the side of the hwy going towards the bridge to New West( this is the only issue I had with them). After getting some directions I finally arrived, it was beautiful! I waited patiently as the Desk clerk patiently dealt with the customer in front of me. This place was full. I told her I wanted to check in. She was a little shocked. It was 11:30 and people were still checking out let alone that they had rooms cleaned yet. I explained my situation and she listened kindly, told me to sit down and she would have a room for me as soon as possible. By 12pm I was in a nice room( high ceilings, soft bed.. overall much better shape of a building than that "higher class" hotel that helped me fined this place) and I was able to get a little sleep before my next shift! When I awoke I was excited to find that the room had its own kurig-type machine! It was a perfect shot of energy to start the next part of my day! Coming back after my shift it was much easier to find the hotel now that I knew where it was, even in the dark. I had to park in the overflow part next to a some large trucks but it was close enough and well lit enough that I didn't have to worry in the middle of the night of having who knows what happen. The night desk clerk was again very pleasant and made sure I needed nothing before I headed up to my room. One of the best sleeps of my life!!!! Finally rested I was able to enjoy my shower and fancy kurig drink. Checking out I was again greeted by smiling kind workers who offered to help me with my bags. I was off to my next destination.
TO SUM ALL THAT UP: good location, kind of hard to get to going from the one direction, nice new building, well cleaned(even when rushed), excellent staff: accommodating(even on a long weekend), friendly, helpful. Overall I was very happy!
