The majority of reviews consulted for this analysis were positive with much praise going to the hotel's location, staff, and value.

Most guests were pleased with the location of this hotel. They described it as close to the airport, with easy access to Cambie St. and Highway 99.

The staff received compliments from several reviewers, who characterized them as efficient, friendly, helpful, and energetic. These guests reported that the staff answered all their questions, and also printed out driving instructions for them.

Many lodgers found the hotel to be of good value for the price. They mentioned the free airport shuttle as adding to the value, and one guest described the hotel as being, "everything you need without breaking the bank". It should be noted, however, that a few guests felt the price should have included a complimentary breakfast.

The Bad
There were more compliments than criticisms of the hotel and most comments of a negative nature were about isolated occurrences, however some guests revealed that although some rooms were updated, others were still in need of updates and that sometimes facilities were older and not working well any longer, such as a fuzzy TV picture, an elevator that did not work, an outdated fridge and kitchenette.
