Spacious Room with 1 double and 1 twin beds. It's an apartment hotel so you have all the dishes, microwave, coffee maker, toaster. You also find portable air-conditioner, fan, portable heater in room. The room that I stayed #326 has loose electrical outlets in the kitchen so I have to find the outlets somewhere else. Hotel does not offer breakfast with the reservation but hotel offers complimentary (as a gift to guests)-- waffles and bread at 8 am with beverages machine (24 hrs) at the small table by the elevator --very nice touch! Bus stops are right in front of the hotel and the cheap regular grocery store (No Frills Grocery Store) is 2 blocks away (in the Denman Place Mall but the grocery does not have sign on the street). Safeway is 7 -10 minutes walk away. Overall this is a very good place to stay at low price.

It’s a budget hotel, but a pretty nice one

Pros: Price and amenities.
Location: Several restaurants within close walking distance. Nearby convenience stores.
PROS Had reasonable kitchenette (microwave/stove/sink/refrigerator), knives, forks, basic dishes/cups. Room had small air conditioners; didn't test. Good curtains to cover from morning sun. Carpets clean, minor creaky floors but not big deal. Had medium flatscreen TV; some cable channels. Free wifi Internet. Hotel parking: fee $10/day for in locked/protected garage. Good price, but steep driveway. All was clean and tidy but obviously quite old. Diligently cleaned each day by friendly, polite staff. NEUTRAL Room Keys: Physical metal keys, not modern plastic key-card slider. Had chain-lock and the doorknobs automatically locked itself. Noise: Pretty quiet. Some noise when loud people walked down the hallway. Generally fine. CONS Bathroom sink missing handle knob to control water. Still usable though with some effort. No ice-machine but refrigerators-freezers had ice-trays. Heating: Spoke to staff about our room being hot. They explained all rooms heated by central thermostat, no individual room preference. They politely suggested open the window OR turning off water radiator heater intake valve (easy to do). Did the latter, worked good. Directly behind hotel is construction. No fault of the hotel. On work week morning, will hear plenty of construction noise. Other side of the building the noise would have been much lesser. CONCLUSION: For the price and amenities, the English Bay Hotel was an excellent stay. I give it 4.5/5 stars and would return again.
