This place is a textbook slum/ghetto. The manager and daytime desk woman are unbelievably shady, deceptive and unprofessional, to put it lightly. People are gaslit when any of the numerous issues (prostitution, drug addicts, domestic violence, people smoking outside rooms, unclean and damaged rooms) are brought to their attention; I and others I know who have stayed there have been blamed for damage, threatened to be evicted, threatened to be removed by police and accused of harrassing staff if we dare to complain or speak in a frustrated tone/hurt the feelings of the self-righteous young woman who heads the front desk during the daytime hours.
This is by far the worst hotel/motel experience I have ever had. I rented a non-smoking suite, but fell asleep and woke up to pain in my chest, pain in my throat, and blurry vision in my left eye. I was so disoriented that I thought I had a contact lens I had to remove, when I did not. It turns out people like to smoke cigarettes and weed and other things in front of the suites, and the suites in turn fill up with poison. I was moved to another suite, where next door a man's dog was barking. I waited a few minutes to have someone from the suite above or next door come down and nearly start a fight.
Easy access from the rear of the property or off Marine Drive. Conveniently located to restaurants, and access to go into Vancouver. A two storey older motel with clean and comfortable rooms. Friendly staff.
This travelodge provides more than basic lodging. Public bus stop just couple minutes walk. Restaurant Denny is next to it. Close to downtown via car, or by sea-bus. The room is quite roomy, it had fridge, microwave oven, coffee and tea. Front desk lady(Asain) was very helpful. The computer(For customers used) need upgrade, should furnish with a printer too. You get more than what you paid for. Highly recommend for a budget traveller.
Wyndham needs to review whether this Motel should continue as a part of their franchise branding. When we got there the exterior was horrible but the room itself had some minor upgrades like white linens, comfy pillows, and new laminate floors. Turns out it was absolutely dire everywhere with garbage, old furniture, old socks and appliances and raw chicken in the bushes surrounding the motel, burnt out exterior lights, rust and moss and peeling paint on the exterior. The room interior had new floors but a broken and rusty and dirty a/c unit, cracks and dents in the walls painted over, cracked light switch plates, cracked toilet tank cover, lots of long hair stuck to the shower stall tiles, black mold on the shower grout, fluff and hair from the last guests in the bathroom floor. Worse than all this is when I went to shower and adjusted the water it was initially fine but then every few seconds it switched from scalding hot to freezing cold instead of staying just warm. I politely reported the shower issues (hair and water temp) but nothing else on check out. Absolutely nothing done about it just “we’ll let someone know”. I have more than ten photos but that’s all it will let me upload. …
