Very comfortable and pleasant accommodations for the (low) price. Good service, helpful staff, clean and well-appointed rooms. Best of all, you can bring your dogs along! (For a modest additional fee.) To a New Westminster newcomer the area around the entrance looks a little seedy, but in fact we never even got panhandled, much less hassled. There is a refrigerator...

Dear Mr. Brewer Thank you for the nice review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay and that your 4 legged friend also enjoyed their stay. As you mentioned we do have parking across the street but it is not included in the price but is an additional $10 per night. Our location is very central and...

We stayed here for work and we were on a tight budget, so it worked well for us. Rooms had nice high ceilings, and were nice and clean, but backed onto a skytrain station and were a bit loud until it stopped running for the night. The neighborhood is a bit rough at night, we were there on a Sat...

Great price, great customer service, great size rooms, great cleanliness. I stayed here with my girlfriend for one night and we honestly didn't expect much, but what we got was a great hotel, at a great price.

Price was the major factor in considering this hotel. Between the room, parking and dog we paid less than half of anything in Vancouver. The room was nice but the cleanliness left something to be desired.

We were looking for a clean, quiet, reasonably priced hotel room on a long weekend and the Met fit the bill. Friendly helpful desk staff. Stay away from the dingy smelly smoky pub and head down the street to eat.

Thank you for review we appreciate all the feedback we receive. I am wondering about the issue with the pub. Like us they are 100% smoke free and we usually get excellent reviews on the food and service. Thank you once again,

This property has huge potential. The staff is excellent, very professional and friendly, and you cannot beat the location and value. It also has a ton of character in the rooms (the common spaces not at all). It is really badly outdated -- it could be a gem if it was updated nicely. The skytrain is literally next door --...

Thank you for staying with us at the Met Hotel. We are so happy to hear that you had a nice stay. The area is wonderful and very family friendly with a fantastic park just across the street.

The Met Hotel in New Westminster is a hidden gem located about twelve miles away from Vancouver. It's an older hotel with large size rooms and comfortable beds. It has a small lobby with a check in desk, but makes up for it with a sitting area in the middle of each floor. I was fortunate to have a room...

Three couples in our group recently stayed one night in 3 rooms (it was the day before Thanksgiving). The street outside is a little rough. The front entry isn't encouraging, small, dingy, and old. The check in was friendly if slow. This is an older property with a faded charm. Each floor has a large middle open area for lounging...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Met Hotel. All of the feedback we recieve from our guest's is important to us. We are located in the older part of New Westminster, BC's first capital.

The only good thing about this place is that it is situated right next to the skytrain station. But anything else is really terrible . At the reception,during opening hours, you are lucky if you find anybody. Anyone can get in and out of the hotel as most of the times nobody checks. The neighborhood is also ,in the evening...

This hotel is adjacent to Columbia TransLink SkyRail station and hence only 25 minutes from Pacific Central station where long distance Amtrak and Via Rail trains arrive.
