went back to downtown vancouver and needed a place as I was rekindling an old romance. she was in town for a few days and, well, wont be going into much detail here............

Richard was awesome as always, he remembered me and gave me a great room. New girl ~ carmelita? was also amazing. the staff here always fun and friendly. they really have fun and make you feel welcome. definitely appreciated
i left my phone charger at home and richard took off downstairs to find me one. Lifesaver!

clean rooms, and they put in new sinks since last stay. great location, price always best in downtown

thanks hojo!

very pleased and will return
sure this is not the best hotel in town- if that is what you are expecting then you should not even be here. What I experienced recently was probably the best value in town. You need to be clear on what is important to you. hojo has a very attractive price for a clean comfortable room. Staff is fun and friendly.rooms are spotless. no fridge, no room service. no valet park. and no serious damage to your wallet

great location. restaurant i wouldnt recommend, but there has got to be 20 options within a 5 minute walk

i do not understand all the complaining- this place is awesome

Actually wasnt me that stayed but was an out of town guest. I did book and pay for it so I am entitled to comment
CHEAP! $70 with tax
GREAT location downtown
AWESOME helpful friendly staff. the guy at the desk was super funny and happy- obviously loves his job. He offered to help with anything and took a few minutes to ask a bit about us so he could recommend the perfect restaurants. He gave us 3 very different options and all sounded great. We went to White Spot the first night and we loved it. next day for lunch we went to VIJs and it was incredible. He helped plan a day excursion, again asking the right questions to construct a personalized itinerary. Im so sorry I didnt get his name- I do remember him from a few years back though. MY SINCERE APPRECIATION AND THANKS !

the hotel is maybe not for everyone. although very clean and comfortable, the rooms are not big and the area can get crazy on the weekends. Very safe, and exceptional value so I rate it very very high

Unique Quality: great staff
location

Directions: downtown. central, granville strip

Good place to stay on Granville St.

Would recommend this place. Good price for a room and surprisingly clean and well decorated. Outside could be a little grimy so it was a pleasant surprise to see the interior so appealing.

Unique Quality: Nice looking lobby with fashionable looking decor. Hallways had historical photos of Vancouver from the past so also educational stay. Bed was nice and firm with good pillows. Very comfortable night's rest. Well kept bathroom. Lots of things to see and do outside.

Inexpensive with nice rooms but...

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 23, 2004

I liked this hotel overall. The interiors were nice. The staff was very helpful. There was a tasty restaurant in the lobby of the hotel.

But... heavy construction was going on right behind our room, forcing me to wake up at 7AM. Also this hotel is located in the nightclub district, which may be a nuisance for some older travellers. There seemed to be a high proportion of street people asking for change and hoodlums loafing about waiting to make deals.

All in all it wasn't horrible though, since the customer service was exceptional. Next time though, I will probably book in a shopping district instead of on this street.

I expect with the amount of new construction occuring in Vancouver, the future street scene may change for the better.

Look Out For the Deals

You can often find brochures and deals for the Howars Johnson inVancouver while travelling on the ferry to and from Victoria. Likewise when you go the other way you should look at the deals fro Traveller's Inn.

Howard Johnson was clean, had big rooms and cable. it was right downtown next to the Granville Bridge and you can catch buses or walk easily right from the front door.

Directions: Downtown on Granville st. The left side while looking at the bridge.
