Hi all, Well hubby and I are jetting off back to visit the rellies in Trail BC at the end of October this year (2010) and we will be spending a few days in Vancouver for about 3 or 4 days when we first arrive. Can anyone point us in the right direction in regards to hotels please? We are looking to stay in the downtown area and we want to spend between $100 and $220 canadian per night for the room. We aren't expecting the Taj Mahal but we would like something nice, clean, rodent and cockroach free and that has internet connection in the room as it is our main form of communication with our kids back home in Perth, Australia. All suggestions are welcome and appreciated, thanks very much.
Internet bidding sites are the way to go-October is low season and you should be able to score a real deal-go for anything downtown.
BTW-Trail BC is an consummate dump-be prepared to be underwhelmed.
I don't suppose you could mention these bidding sites you mentioned by chance...please?
Trail is fine for us. We were only there last year in September visiting my family. We are well aware it isn't a tourist destination. My family live there and that is what makes it beautiful to me.
I'm planning a trip in August & I like this site, so far...
Thanks dbl-nkl I will go and have a look. Thanks SamSalmon for your help as well.
I've stayed at the St CLair (youth hostel stylee) and the Granville Grand which was the closest thing to a hotel I stayed at in BC. It was nice, though a little noisy from the bar below in the evening, but those are my two recommendations for sure :-)
