We live in East Vancouver.
This summer when the Eagle creek fire was first starting in the Gorge and the wind was bringing all the smoke and fire our direction. We needed to get out of our apartment since we don't have centralized air conditioning.
Ash was raining from the sky all over the place, the air was so smoky it was hard to breathe.
My husband works from home and we have a dog who is 13 years old. So we decided to book ourselves into this hotel since it has a/c, wi-fi and is dog friendly.
We would stay until the air quality improved enough to go back to the apartment.
My husband called to find out how early he would be able to check in and he let them know of his situation that he works from home.
They were so helpful and accommodating with the Fires going on, they understood the situation and said they had a lot of people seeking refuge in the hotel.
They allowed him to check in immediately from the moment he hung up the phone, this was about 9:45am.
They told him to "come on over".
We got a couple of small bags packed and headed over to the hotel.
This is a newer hotel, the rooms were nicely decorated and very clean.
My husband and dog were able to relax safely in the hotel during the fires whilst I went to work and luckily by the next day the wind had changed directions and we were able to check out and get back into the apartment.
The cost of this hotel was extremely reasonable and affordable. The service we received was wonderful.
They saved us in a time of need for our family and we we would definitely stay again if a situation ever comes up, and we will suggest them for any family that may come visit us.
