Editor's Analysis
Updated on Sep 28, 2012
Overview
Located south of the Trans-Canada Highway and under a minute from the Lions Gate Bridge on-ramp, the Travelodge Vancouver Lion's Gate is popular with tourists and those travelling by car who require an easily accessible hotel along the highway or close to the bridge connecting North Vancouver with downtown Vancouver.

This hotel has 61 air-conditioned guest rooms, all of which offer free Wi-Fi, cable TV, a coffee/tea maker, and an iron/ironing board. Rooms with two double beds or one king bed are offered, and refrigerators and microwaves are available upon request. Accessible rooms are also available, and parking is free. Up to two dogs of any size are permitted in rooms at no extra charge.

Dining can be found next door at Denny's (open 24 hours), and other nearby options include Earl's Restaurant and Pho Japolo (both within a two-minute walk east of the hotel).

The Travelodge Vancouver Lion's Gate is approximately an 11-minute drive from downtown North Vancouver and Lonsdale Quay (where the SeaBus station is). Grouse Mountain is roughly a 14-minute drive north of the hotel, while the Capilano Suspension Bridge is 8 minutes north. Vancouver International Airport (YVR) is about 20 km (roughly 35 minutes) south of the hotel. (All distances and travel time estimates: Google Maps)

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

Most guests offered praise to the hotel's staff and characterized them as friendly, accommodating and helpful. One guest described how the staff went out of their way to return a ring they'd left in their room, while another guest described the manager delivering ice to a patron with accessible needs.

Several reviewers were pleased with the hotel's location. They described it as being a 10-minute drive into downtown Vancouver and close to local tourist attractions such as Grouse Mountain and Capilano Suspension Bridge (14 minutes and 8 minutes away respectively).

The cost and value of the hotel were appreciated by many lodgers, who found the price fair. These lodgers were pleased with their accommodations and felt the rooms were clean, spacious and of "solid value" for the cost.

The Bad
While most of the reviews consulted for this analysis were positive, there were some common complaints among them which included noise transfer, out-dated decor and odour within the rooms.

Some guests had complaints about excess noise. They described the noise as stemming from other guests in adjacent rooms and in the hallway, as well as noise from a warehouse across the street. It should be noted however that most reviews did not mention noise as a problem, and some guests found the hotel very quiet.

A few guests were disappointed with the decor and fixtures in the hotel and found them outdated and in need of replacement. they described old and worn carpet and bathrooms which were too bare, with no shelf in the shower. A few other guests had complaints that they could smell cigarette smoke in their non-smoking rooms.

"For the budget traveller, this is probably the best option in North Vancouver. The rooms are threadbare, but quite livable. There is a pool for the children. There are restaurants within walking distance. Good for families - there are connecting rooms."
