This hotel is in a great location if you need access to the airport, want to gamble at the River Rock, or have a business meeting in Richmond or South Vancouver. You can walk to the River Rock or across the street to Costco, it's close to major routes downtown and to the airport, ferry or U.S. border if you are driving, and there's a Sky Train terminal nearby for convenient access to downtown Vancouver without the hassle of parking. I was there for business but have stayed there in the past when travelling and needed a convenient place to park for a week or two. I really appreciate the free shuttle to and from the airport. The shuttle drivers, both from and back to the airport, were right on time. The front desk staff person was outstanding - very personable and pro-active in ensuring that I received all the promotions that Best Western was offering. As a gold member, I received an immediate free upgrade (which I didn't have to ask for). The room was clean and comfortable and there's good wifi, also free. Breakfast is included (check other reviews for description of the breakfast - I had to get an early shuttle to the airport so didn't get a chance to check it out on this trip). It's great value for a Vancouver-area hotel. The decor is a little dated but when you realize they are trying to retain the Scottish-theme from previous owners it's not so bad. I will be back! less
