Stayed here during a conference, excellent location for that, and very good accommodation. Not close to a lot of tourist stuff (except UBC based- Museum of Anthropology, Nitobe Gardens, Wreck Beach) so chose a different location if that's what you're after. One bedroom suite had a lot of room, no tub in bath but very nice shower. Granite counters there... More

My son and I spent 4 nights at the West Coast Suites at UBC in June. We chose this location as the purpose of our trip was to find more permanent accommodations for when he begins classes at UBC in late August/early September. The location was perfect as it gave us a clear idea of distance to the campus, but... More

close to everything, bus loop, student union, great place to stay for visiting the University. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The kitchen was great for having snacks and breakfast. The cleaning staff were very accomodating as we were in and out all the time and they always made sure to have our room cleaned. I stayed for march break... More

Stayed here for a week recently while attending a short course at UBC. The suite was clean and quiet, with everything needed to do one's own cooking etc. King size bed was fairly comfortable but hide-a-bed was not, and at $149.00 per night one would expect a bit better "second bed" arrangement. It was very convenient, but the charge for... More

I was in Vancouver for 20 days. I decided to stay next to the UBS because business. The room was equipped with everything. The view was perfectly nice. Directly to the sea. Indeed, a couple of bald eagles were my neighbors!!!! I really love Vancouver

When my parents visit for a longer period, they would stay in this hotel at UBC. I felt that the service was much better a few years ago (Dec 2010, 2011), when they offered basic amenities (tooth brush, tooth paste) and visitor parking. Now, visitors with cars have to pay for street parking which is a walk away from the... More

This place is a steal! We just rented a room w/ a king bed and full kitchen for $119/night, which was a great value. All the room accommodations are great, and the location is good as well. On the UBC campus about a 15 minute drive from downtown Vancouver, BC. I would definitely stay here again.

We like the university setting. It is outside of the downtown and so less frantic. Clean and convenient, with a kitchen, we have meals there with our local groceries. The bed is comfortable and the sitting room a nice convenience for us as a couple. The amenities are nice but not luxurious, with a small, efficient bathroom with shower. A... More

If you are visiting your kid at UBC, or visiting UBC on business, this is really the best place to stay because it is right on campus and quite comfortable. I have stayed 3 times and plan to return every time I am at UBC. If you are expecting to stay in downtown Vancouver, think again: this is outside of... More

This is a great place to stay if you have business at UBC. The kitchens are well-equipped, the space is ample with leather chair and couch, great light, windows that open and west coast air. The small apartment is well appointed with the usual 'good hotel' amenities: iron/board, high quality coffee, nice bathrooms and king bed. Given the lack of... More
