We stayed at this property in June of this year and were really happy with everything we got there! The apartment was really clean and nicely renovated, bathroom/kitchen excellently equipped and the service was great! The housekeeping staff were especially nice. The surroundings were amazing- very green and lush.The only thing I didn't like was the fact they charged for... More

We had a one-bedroom suite, complete with kitchen, and it did very nicely for my wife and myself as well as our son. The apartments are fairly basic, and some decoration would be welcome, pictures on the walls, for example. The rooms are quiet, however, and the price is right and much better than anything available downtown.

Pro: -Quiet location since it's inside UBC -New toilets and facuets, which is nice -dishes, pans, cups, and kettles are provided -beside the bus terminus -parking is $11.43 taxes included per day (cheaper than downtown parking) Con: -No AC -No in-room Wifi (this is the 21st century, come on!) -Lack of signage, so it's easy to lost -In addition, the...

Stayed in one bedroom in a pod of 6 that shared a washroom (2 showers, 1 toilet) a kitchen and a sitting area. Unlike some other residences, the kitchen had a stove, as well as a fridge and microwave. No utensils, pots, crockery or cutlery. Bring your own. Daily maid service was good. Room was small, but comfortable, except that... More

Although the room was quite basic and the shared showers and restrooms were clean, the room was very old. The desk and bed were probably more than 30 years old, and there was no air conditioning. No wifi at the room. In contrast, the hotel service is very friendly and the lobby is quite comfortable. The gage apartments are located... More

Given the moderate temperatures of Vancouver you usually do not need air conditioning. But my room was directly in the sun and was a stifling 90 degrees F when I walked in. Even after jamming the door open the room would not cool down. There was simply no way to pull cool air into the room. Made for a rather... More

Great location on campus. Parking close by and the student union building across the street are handy. Don't expect much in the way of service when compared to a hotel. Here you move your own luggage to your room and hope to get replenished bathroom toiletries on a daily basis. But it's clean and if you need to be on... More

While the bed was comfortable, the fan in the room didn't work, nor was there Internet access (despite it being indicated in the guest service binder), and the ability to dial the front desk wasn't working. As a business traveller, it had more limitations than benefits and as the price is the same as the downtown hotels - I'll stay... More

We stayed here for a week in July 2014 during a conference at UBC. So location was great. Unfortunately there was a heatwave in Vancouver, and the ceeling fan wasn't much help. Better AC would really improve the situation. Otherwise, close to the bus terminal, so reaching other parts of Vancouver was very easy. It isn't a top hotel, so... More

Staying in University Land Endowments

Neighborhood Profile
University Land Endowments
An area as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the expansive parkland of the University Land Endowments is protected by the city in cooperation with the University of British Columbia. A large green space studded by rose gardens, Japanese rock gardens, botanic gardens, canopy walks, regional parkland, and hiking trails, the University Land Endowments are a breath of fresh air. Combining a commitment to preserving nature with a similar promise to preserve culture, its valleys are also home to the First Nations heritage museum, the biodiversity museum, and anthropological and memorial exhibitions. From its highest canopies to the sandy shorelines of Wreck Beach, its serenity is preserved by the University buildings that dot it, combining Mother Nature and scholarship.
