The Good
Reviews used for this analysis were mixed, with positive points focused on the staff, the price and the location.

Although a few guests complained of a slow check-in process, many guests felt the staff were courteous and helpful. Staff received many compliments even when guests were disappointed with other aspects of the hotel.

Many guests felt the price they paid was low, describing this as a basic hotel that offered very affordable room rates.

Some guests appreciated the central location of this hotel within the Lower Mainland. It was felt that the hotel offered good access to downtown Vancouver (about a 45-minute drive), Vancouver International Airport, BC Ferries Tsawwassen Terminal and Kwantlen Polytechnic University.

The Bad
Although this hotel received some positive reviews, several negative comments focused on the age and state of the building, the level of cleanliness and noise.

Many guests felt the hotel was old and rundown. Guests complained of worn carpets, linens and towels. Toilets, sink faucets, appliances and fixtures in some rooms were said to be in need of repair. Overall, many felt the hotel needed a major facelift.

Although many guests felt their room was tidy, several guests felt their room was in need of a "deep clean". Mold and stains were found in bathrooms and on window sills. Some noted a strong cigarette smell throughout the building, including in designated non-smoking rooms.

Some guests complained of disruptive noise from guests in adjacent rooms including doors slamming and people talking. A few were also disturbed by traffic noise.

"This was a very convenient location. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were quiet in spite the fact that the lodge was on a main road. We were happy with the meals at Ronnie's as they on location and were simple and inexpensive. We could buy a wine or beer as well in the restaurant. the staff were very helpful."

"Fair , only Fair"
"The hotel was decent as far as the rooms were concerned , but the hotel staff were decidedly unfriendly and not very interested in helping correct any deficiencies."

William from Calgary, AB CA rated Econo Lodge Surrey 7 out of 10 on April 07, 2011 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Our only complaint (other than the sink plug missing) is that the room smelled somewhat of tobacco smoke residue. It was billed as a "non-smoking" room. On the plus side, free wifi and the excellent work desk were much appreciated. The micowave oven and fridge were bonuses, too."

Dale from Kelowna, BC CA rated Econo Lodge Surrey 4 out of 10 on May 21, 2006 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Communication from the front desk was limited and not particularly welcoming. There were no extra pillows (only 2 for one double bed). The carpet was not clean. House keeping did not replace the towels until late in the afternoon on the second day. The bottom sheet was not particularly clean. It was uncomfortable to enter the lobby. No elevator! My teenage daughter was uncomfortable questioned when she went out to the car and returned to our room. Were there any food services?"

Jim from West Bank, BC CA rated Econo Lodge Surrey 7 out of 10 on July 18, 2004 Verified Guest Hotel Review

"Price was good, only used it for staying overnight though. The location was within 15 minutes of Boundary Bay airport which was my reason for the stay and the reason for choosing this hotel. The bathtub has a more curved bottom than usual and the friction stuff was worn off, nearly fell while showering!"
