My stay at The Best Western in Burnaby.
I stayed 6 nts in a room with 2 queen beds.
pros~ This hotel/motel is not too expensive being it's the lower mainland (no toll bridges to pay when going into Van.) The staff were all accommodating & delightful.Clean,spacious room with very comfortable beds.Buffet bkfst was pancakes,waffles,scrambled & hard boiled eggs,ham slices,& either bacon or sausages,cereals,yogarts,yummy pastries,breads,limited fruit,juice,good coffee,decent breakfast.New lobby,which wasn't finished yet,is already awesome.It is walkable to Safeway,all sorts of stores & restaurants. Metrotown mall was a few minutes away by car.
The sky train is at the Metro Mall.I can't comment on bus service but there is lots of parking at the hotel.
cons~ no microwave in the room would be my biggest complaint.I thought $12.00 to rent a movie is too much,so didn't.Slighty sketchy area,but I felt safe to walk alone,even at night. less
