This was a mixed bag: the lady at the front desk was so nice that I feel bad about writing something negative here... We occupied two adjoining rooms for two nights. I noticed the smell of stale cigarette smoke from the outside of the second floor room, and inside it was very strong. The adjoining room was somewhat better, but still unacceptable, and I do not think I am particularly sensitive. Apparently, these were smoking rooms that had been converted to non-smoking years ago, but if this is the case, they would need to be completely gutted. So, without having to insist, we were given adjoining rooms on the main floor. The smell of smoke was even here perceptible but not overwhelming, however, the strong smell of cleaner in one of the two rooms was quite unpleasant. We opened the windows and brought the luggage in. The rooms were otherwise clean, and one had a sort of a kitchenette: a counter-top hosting a full-size cooking top, a fridge and a sink, two feet away from one of the beds. I travel with family and do see the practicality of a cooking top, but the fact that I could fry fish on the stove without leaving the bed indicated an excessively crammed and quite unusual design to me. Anyway, speaking of cooking, the continental breakfast did not break any records but was acceptable. The location, well, if you intend to visit Vancouver, you should plan more than one hour travel time one way, given the distance and the construction on the Trans Canada highway. The one objective that is very close to here, needs to be said, is the Vancouver Zoo, and the Trans Canada is not far, either.
Would I stop here again? Unlikely. The strong smells made a lasting impression on me, and there are many other options closer to Vancouver. I expected more from the "Plus" in "Best Western Plus".
