I was only there for one night and literally slept there and left for the airport at 5 am the next day. The bed in the room I rented was incredibly comfortable. The place was clean and the host friendly and professional.

Home away from home.
This is our second time staying at Marpole Guest House and we will be back! We love so much about it! Very convenient to book and the owners are receptive to any questions or needs to make your stay a good one. It's clean, comfortable and a great location! Handy details like local stores and transit are provided and are just a short walk away. We like to prepare at least some of our meals and it's easy here with the full kitchen. Meeting people from different countries is another plus as many guests stay here because it is so close to the airport.

Quiet neighbourhood
I arrived a little early to drop off my bag before an appointment and was given the entry code number when I called, and enjoyed the living room area before receiving my room. The check in man was friendly and explained everything about the guest house and area nearby. I did not make use of the tea, coffee kitchen area as I had a course all weekend. If you arrive by transit and are used to 35-40 minute commutes to the downtown area, you will appreciate the relatively short walk (5-15 minutes depending on transit choice) to access transit. I had the King room with private bath-very comfortable, and the other guests were quiet. With a car, this is a very convenient location to the airport or Victoria ferry.

Great place
Needed a cheap place to stay near the airport -- this was perfect. The room was small but comfortable, the shared bathroom was very clean, it was great to have a kitchen and living room downstairs. The only problem: couldn't figure out how to access Wifi. This may have been my own fault, but if you need Wifi, be sure to ask about it in advance.

Would stay here again😎
I had the room with its own bath. Bed was comfortable and the bath was huge! The entire place was very clean and tidy. Loved that it had a full kitchen, since Safeway was easy 5 minute walk so was able to get breakfast food. Easy to get downtown and back on the bus on Granville or Oak. Plenty of places to grab a bite close as well on Granville. I have travelled all over the world and Marpole Guest House is exactly what I expected it to be, a room in a house with a shared common space. Just what I needed to visit friends in the area and explore Vancouver and it’s beautiful surroundings. I would definitely stay here again! Hint: get day pass for transportation at 7-11

Have a good time
The room is clean and comfortable, and it is close to the skytrain (15-20 mins walking distance or 10 mins by bus).

Poor 2.0
Scary looking place
Terrible experience overall. We didn't even end up staying. It started with us having to call them 3 times due to needing to check in after 9pm. With 24 hrs until check in we were finally able to get codes to get into our room on our own. We chose it because it was close to the airport and the price and photos looked like it was going to be a very nice place to stay. That was far from the truth. The location was in a bad part of town. We drove up and knew the instant we saw it that it was a big mistake and would not be able to sleep.
