Ramada Inn and Suites - Downtown Vancouver Reviews
Great stay at Ramada downtown! Oct 13, 2013
Stayed at Ramada for 3 nights in September, while visiting a friend in Vancouver! It was about $130/ night; booked through hotels.com
- Excellent location! Right there on Granville Street; close to all the action, great restaurants, clubs etc
- Very affordable; this is probably the best deal you will find in terms of cost for a decent hotel located downtown that isn't sketchy
- Free internet included
- Very friendly & helpful staff; many thanks to the gentleman who helped me with directions to the airport
- Worst tiniest elevators I have ever seen, you're better off just using the stairs. I once had to wait like about 15 minutes for the elevator to appear
- They don't have a kitchen, hence do not offer room service
- They did not clean my room the entire duration of my stay, which I found quite odd
- The walls are pretty thin, so there might be some noise issues
- The room was definitely on the smaller side
- The hotel is a bit outdated in some spots -mind you, the rooms are perfectly fine -- but they should redo the rest of the hotel
All in all I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in downtown Vancouver! Don't listen to all the negative reviews, this place is perfectly fine! The rooms are modern enough which is what counts, and you wont find any other place with as much value within the same price range.

Ramada Inn Dec 18, 2011
City blocks full of shops, cinemas, restaurants and hotels make the Granville street, one of the main Vancouver streets. Colorful characters roam between tattoo shops and pizza parlors enjoying in rare periods without boring cold rain. Attractive and modern looking hotel lobby glows as only thing that can glow on the older and ugly multiple story building. Many of the cheap option hotels are located in this area, and mostly they are part of some hotel chain. Prices are pretty regular and steep too, and we paid a bit less than 80$ for this Vancouver experience. Hotel is close to Granville street bridge that takes you out from the city center and you can also walk over to Granville island market (or take water taxi, easy and cheep option). That small island is filled with many shops, quality food stands, and workshops that celebrate Native art. I ate some really good soups, and pastries in the food market, and also there is serious fish and chips place short distance walk towards the fishing port.
Hotel entrance of Ramada Inn is like fancy chocolate wrapper, but as soon as you climb short stairs and get into hallways, old carpets, darkness of long hallways and squeaky floor brings you to the reality. This hotel is just a partially refurbished hole in the wall. Now, to be honest, rooms have new and really good beds, and shower/bathtub is excellent. Also, room has all amenities needed for enjoyable and relaxing stay, such as great bedding, warm blankets, good TV, bunch of soaps and cleaning products, and Internet is free of charge (I never understood why in more expensive hotels you have to pay at least 10$ to use WiFi internet, and in cheap hotels and hostels that comes as normal free amenity). It is just a bit strange for me to see such a half hearted job in refurbishing the place. Window view was in the alley with some weird electrical installations.
Only issue I had was their mandatory deposit holding on your debit cards. I am gladly putting that deposit when I use the hotel, but why they hold my money for 3-4 days after I leave hotel… I did not permit them to do that, and they are obviously earning money on my funds deposited at their company.
Center of Vancouver is walkable anywhere you go, and there is also great connection with the rest of the city with awesome bus and metro system. As I said, hotel is pretty centrally located, and you can get to most of the interesting places after short walk. Every restaurant we went to had good food, and there is huge variety of national cuisines. Our friend also took us to South Korean supermarket that has area where Korean food is prepared, and it was very good. On the tip of the peninsula there is beautiful park that requires whole day of walk or few hours of running to cover.
Due to good location and curse of having no good and cheep hostels in Vancouver, this place is ok to stay for the short time.
