5/5 Excellent

    Clean. Convenient, and economic. Nothing more needs to be said. Coupled with a rented car, best place in the city during the crazy days of summer

    Stayed 2 nights in Jun 2019

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    A bit expensive but the beach view is great from top floors.

    Stayed 8 nights in Aug 2019

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

    Room was comfortable. Parking was extra - a lot extra. I seem to recall something like $24/day. The desk staff were patient with my navigational issues. (A lot had changed since my year of graduation from UBC - 1970.)
