I strongly recommend...
I strongly recommend affordable lodgings by Shirley Sue-a-Quan. You can reach her by going to their web site at http://www.jasmineplace.bc.ca/, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling them at (604) 325-4989. They have some great weekly, monthly, and permanent rentals - will treat you well. Just tell them that Tom Baurley referred you (I'm one of their tenants) and they'll take care of your lodging needs affordably.
variable, depending on what you are looking for.
Good prices, great setups, good views.

I stayed at two dirrent hostels: HI Jericho Beach and Global Backpackers. Though Jericho Beach was an excellent large facility, it was a bit far from all the sights of the main area of Vancouver. Global Backpackers was smaller and centrally located, and definitely a pleasant place to stay.

I recommend my homestay...
I recommend my homestay family. My school agency (www.eslvancouver.com) found a Canadian family for me to stay with in Vancouver. They are very nice and invite me to many activities. They made it much easier for me to travel to another country.
The family is very social and active. I can know Canada very well because of the family. They show me a typical Canadian family and also tell me about the real Canada. It is also very good for my English to speak with them.

Since I live here and haven't...
Since I live here and haven't stayed in any of the hotels here (except maybe overnight in one of the fancy downtown hotels during our company Christmas parties), I can't give any specific lodging recommendation. However, I can share some tips when finding a place to stay:
1) Unless you are going all-out fancy and willing to dish out lots of $$$, you don't have to stay downtown unless you need to. Vancouver isn't that big a city and as long as you are accessible to public transportation (ie. skytrain), you are fine.
2) Besides downtown, there are some good hotels/motels (the Best Western types) on Capilano Rd. in North Vancouver, on southeast Kingsway Rd. (close to Joyce skytrain section), and in north Burnaby. There are a lot of hotels in the Richmond area near the airport -- but unless you have a rental car, you can be stranded. Taking the bus to and from Richmond sucks!!
3)If you must stay downtown, there are reasonably priced places in the neighbourhood called the West End. There's the Parkhill hotel on Davie street and a bunch of smaller places along Beach Ave. & Denman street.

All hotels there is so expensive. The cheaper one that we finally took is the ALPENGLOW HOTEL is the north village.
Cost approximately 150.00CAD$ (so approx 100us$)
You can have a fireplace inside your room and there is a outdoor heated pool and spa. That's so cool to be inside a hot spa and you can see snow outside.

Our first night we stayed at...
Our first night we stayed at the Buchan Hotel in the West End, a couple of blocks from restaurants and Stanley Park. The rest of the week we stayed in a timeshare unit at Mountainside Lodge in Whistler Village and loved it- right up in the mountains. You can hike from your front door. The historic Sylvia Hotel is close to Stanley Park, on English Bay and cheap ($55-77 single/double and $82-125 for a suite), but book well in advance it very popular! Ask for a corner unit for the view. Our last night we stayed at a spartan but very inexpensive dorm room at the University of British Columbia, call ahead, they really book fast.
I have no idea how much the timeshare unit usually goes for, but the University of BC dorm room was only $72 per night for three.
Our unit at Mountainside was just gorgeous. It has a full kitchen, view of the mountain, and hot tub and fireplace in the master bedroom. There was no need for a car, the village provides shopping, groceries and restaurants.

I live here, but if you want to leave the city for a day or two try the Harrison Hot Springs Resort (two hours east of Vancouver).
$139 - $189 Canadian
Natural hot springs pools that can be used 22 hours a day. Great views of Harrison Lake and the surrounding mountains. Peace and quiet.
Huge sandcastle contest every summer.

Before moving here, I had to stay in Vancouver for a cruise to Alaska and I stayed in a Best Western in the downtown area.
It can get rather expensive depending on season, but I estimate it costed around $100 in Canadian dollars.
