Had to catch an early plane from Kelowna and the ubc campus is 5 minutes away. So i decided to book a single dorm room for 38 bucks for the night. Room was clean and the single bed reasonably comfortable. Good place for cheap nights rest.

Hi Grant L. Thank you for your great review. I hope you had a good flight. Yes we are right across (5 minute drive) from the Kelowna airport and for a small fee you can order a taxi cab on campus and be dropped off in front of "departures" any time of the day (or vice versa if you arrive... More

This place was terrible! The first dorm room I got smelled like smoke something fierce, to the point that my kids were getting nauseous, and the second room was an oven! Staff was friendly but knew nothing about anything!!! I spent over $200 FOR ONE NIGHT FOR A COMPLETE DUMP! Find anywhere else, that is a "real" hotel or motel,... More

UBC residence was a great spot for our family reunion - 50+ people with a range of ages from newborn babies to people into their 80's. The suites are designed so that a large family can have a mixture of privacy (four small bedrooms) with shared kitchen and living area for gathering. Rooms are simple, but clean and come complete...

Thanks Karen D. for your awesome review! We are definitely a great place for groups to come together, whether it is for a family reunion, sport event or conference. Our campus is compact enough to have accommodation, catering and meeting space within a 5 minute walk from each other. I hope we will see you and your family again on... More

We booked Monashee Family Suite for Jul 27. It is a 4 bedroom suite. But it only has one air conditioner on the kicthen window. By chance, it is a 30C day. So we did not sleep well. Other than that, the bed and pillow are not comfortable.

Hello Rockyviewmd. Thank you for your review! I hope you and your family had a good stay except for the air conditioner challenge. Our 6 Family Suites in Monashee are the only suites that do not have an air-conditioning unit in each bedroom but rather one unit for the whole suite in the living room. Leaving the bedroom doors open... More

This is a great place if you are not concerned with amenities or location. Definitely a dorm room with a firm (hard bed) so don't expect any luxuries but is was perfectly functional for my daughter and I because it was fully contained with a kitchen (stove, fridge, microwave and limited cooking/dinnerware). Definitely pack a decent knife and a pizza... More

Hi Aquayreous! Thank you for your review. Our campus is definitely gorgeous, quiet and safe! We are glad you liked it! Public transportation stops regularly on campus and brings you downtown within half an hour. Cost for a ticket is only $2.25 and is valid for a couple of hours.

While you're searching for an expensive place to stay in Kelowna, BC why not consider going back to school? That's right, UBC rents out some of their dorm rooms to the public. They offer a variety of rooms at reasonable prices for everyone from the single traveler to whole families. During my most recent visit to Kelowna to judge a... More

Have stayed here and it is excellent value but it is not for everyone. On the + side, the rooms are clean and good value for Kelowna in the summer. The campus is amazing and has many great walking/running paths. If you are travelling alone this is a great option for you, or with a large group. The staff were... More

At first, I thought this was going to be a great stay. I was there on business and had to get up early. I'd done my research and knew that there were no restaurants on campus open during the summer, so I called a few nearby pizza places and found one that delivered to the campus. Upon arrival, the room... More

For the most part, this place was an okay place to stay that doesn't break the bank. It's best for those who are travelling solo and doesn't want to spend too much for lodging. Also close to the airport for quick business travel. They have options available for more than one person. For a single room, you get barebone basics... More

I just spent a night there and it was totally fine. The room was small, but for 54 dollars, what would you expect. The room was tidy, it had clean towels, and had an amazing view. The bathroom is shared between two rooms (I had a single) and it worked out fine. The internet (free) was fast and adequate. The... More
