Budget-Friendly Vancouver Hotels with Comfortable Rooms That Won't Break the Bank

When you're on vacation, you may end up spending very little time in your hotel room, so why break the bank when you can stay at a budget-friendly hotel, and have money left over to spend on seeing the sights? Vancouver is full of high-end and budget-friendly hotels in convenient areas across the city. Just because you're staying at a budget hotel doesn't mean that you have to compromise the location you end up in.

The Georgian Court is right off of Robson Street and is not only easier on the wallet than some high-end properties, but the decor, cleanliness and staff will meet high expectations and provide you a very comfortable night's sleep. It's on the higher price point of our budget hotels, but is worth the splurge. The women's only floor is great for female travelers.

Are boutique hotels your thing? The Victorian Hotel Vancouver offers comfortable rooms that blend modern touches and timeless pieces. This historic property is a five minute walk from Gastown's boutiques, restaurants, cafes so it's easy to get out and explore.

If you can cook your own meals, that can really help down on cutting down costs and the Times Square Suites Hotel in the West End is the perfect home away from home. These apartment-style suites have everything you need to feel right at home, and the close proximity to Stanley Park and buses makes exploring the city a breeze.
