Had a pretty early start today as there was lots we wanted to see and do. Headed through Gastown grabbing a muffin and coffee before heading up to waterfront. We also found a shop all about the Canadian Mounties and as some of you know Andrew loves them after watching 'Due South' when he was younger. He is now the proud owner of a Mountie t-shirt …
I didn't go to bed till pretty late last night as I was trying to figure out the best way to get all our stuff in our bags. Nightmare hope I get better at it. I was also doing a bit of research into what to see and do in Vancouver once we got there. We got up early as Sarah kindly offered to give us a lift to the station saving us a walk. Some how …
We spent a few days in Vancouver.
We went for a walk round the city which was strange as there were lots of homeless people.
We then went to the Aquarium where we saw lots of fish, Jellyfish, Whale's, Otters, Porpoises, Sea Lions, Penguins, Sharks, Turtles, spiders, Butterflies and lots more. My favourite's were the Jellyfish, Becci's …
We made it to Canada! After a long car ride yesterday in the rain, with several detours trying to avoid to roadworks, but hitting peak hour traffic jams instead, we made it to our hotel! Its a nice cosy hotel, with very friendly staff who told us all the important things about Vancouver and the must sees and dos. Our room is small but has a bed and …

Historical Traveler Reviews Budget Inn Patricia Hotel Vancouver
Despite some previous reviews we spent 2 nights at the Patricia hotel. Despite being in a neighbourhood that wasn't always nice to look at I have to say that the Patricia hotel is a wonderful place. We looked at several room types and decided on one of their more "expensive" rooms a queen deluxe, which was quite a bit nicer than their budget rooms and still a wonderful deal at a third of the price of most other accomodation in Vancouver.
Stay as far away from this place as possible
I have been to Motel 6 once and that seemed a paradise to this! I slept with my $1000.00 US suit jacket over the pillow! I would sleep in my car before I would ever consider this again!!!!!! Trust me, BEWARE! If you still dont believe ask to see the room first!
This hotel is located in arguably the worst neighborhood of all Canada. Check it out on the internet if you dont believe me but I had to find out the hard way, thinking I was getting a decent deal on a budget hotel. There are literally hundreds of homeless, drunks, druggies and prostitutes in this "war zone" of decay and depravation. I had to cancel my remaining 3 (of the original 4) nights because of safety concerns, particularly to my rental car. The hotel claims the parking lot is secure with video surveillance but I only noticed two cameras and who knows if they actually worked. The cameras didnt appear to have much range as it they were only pointed onto the first row of cars. I am familiar with these types of cameras and the range isnt that good if it's pointed straight down.The parking lot also houses a bar that presumably has the types of people described above as customers. The folks at the hotel can refute anything I state here but without a doubt, I will never ever be a guest at their hotel again. I also paid a fee for access to the internet in their lobby and the computer station had no internet access the following day. I ended up finding another hotel closer to the center of town and needless to say, I felt a lot safer than at the Patricia Hotel. I have been to hotels all over Europe and never had such as bad an experience as I did with this location. If you decide you still want to stay here, dont bother parking your car in their "free, secure parking lot." Be warned!!
Very nice hotel in a safe drug neighborhood (a statement that could only be made in Vancouver?). Rooms very clean, with lots of character. Lobby is great, lots of character, nice to read in. Staff friendly, helpful. The location is ideal if you plan on visiting several areas of Vancouver; better location than the expensive downtown hotels. And on the edge of China-town, you get amazing odors of bbq meat and other great food.
Saw this property online through a travel booking website and figured that judging from the pictures, the hotel's website, and description, it might be a steal for New Years accomodations. WRONG.... Yes, it is very economically advantageous rate-wise if you're not concerned with security of belongings, surrounding environment, or quality of lodging.
This hotel is in the heart of the ghetto. I was told by 3 different people, within 10 minutes of checking in, not to leave ANYTHING in my car. I was totally misled by their website into thinking this hotel was going to be a great place to stay on my vacation. I knew I was getting a bargain but didn't know how shabby this place was really going to be. The bed was no more than plywood with padding, the pillows were pancake thin, the walls are paper thin, the "door" to the bathroom(which is barely bigger than the toilet itself) was a very thin accordian-style plastic curtain with no latch or knob. AND BEST OF ALL...there was no mention of having to look over a trashy slum before you see the fabulous "city view" from your hotel room. I wouldn't recommend staying here and enourage the people who work here to be more honest with consumers when they call on the phone for details about the hotel.
Yes this hotel may be cheap, but it's a textbook case of getting what you pay for. It's located in the worst neighborhood in the city. Junkies, prostitutes, and panhandlers await you outside. Not an area you want to stay in on vacation. The rooms are very small and have all the ambience of a flophouse. No climate control. Bathrooms are about the size of an airline restroom. Our view was an abandoned rusting car next door. Pay a little more and stay downtown.
