Contemporary well-equipped, spacious, clean suites. Good kitchen with all the basics. No AC, so especially the south facing units get hot in summer. There is a large bus station (central station?) right across the hotel building. Those rooms facing it get quite a bit of noise, so you should try to avoid these. I think they have suite numbers less... More

Stayed here the night before a popular half marathon in Vancouver. Room was at a premium (Vancouver in the summer and on the weekend) but not as bad as other places in Vancouver. It took me 20 mins to get into the downtown (without traffic - 40 mins with traffic) by car, so was happy that it was removed but... More

Our suite was comfortable for a grandmother and a teen aged granddaughter. If we had to stay in the room for the day, living with a pull out bed would have been a problem until it was made up. We discovered local restaurants and the 99 bus into Vancouver. We did not take advantage of all the activities available on... More

the West Coast Suites is part of the bigger compound managed by UBC. The location and service quality are generally good. The suite unite is generally clean and there are good sets of pans and pots for cooking. The breakfast is served in the old student union building, and quality of that could be a lot better. The coin (smart... More

We have stayed here a number of times when visiting our daughter at UBC, and it is always reliable and comfortable. It is well equipped with a bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette / sitting room. The bed is large and comfortable and there is plenty of storage space; there is a separate sofa bed in the main area. The kitchen has... More

We stay here every other weekend while watching our daughter play hockey. Roomy suites with a functional kitchenette. Bed is very comfortable and the living room is great for visiting in. Close to all amenities at UBC including public transportation and taxis. It's a long way to the nearest hotel off campus.

I was feeling very calm like I was at home. It was at first uncomfortable in that I was in a foreign world, but later I started to develop new adjustments and nounces to live a better life. People were benign to each other and they said hello to me. It was a very solidifying experience in that I was... More

Very comfortable beds and rooms. Especially the beds and comforters. Appliances work great, supplied utensils also. Good place to stay. Good value for the money. Buses right across the lot if needed. Should be a bit careful in room selection in the summer as I don't see any air conditioning. Better to be on the north side of the building.

My daughter and I stayed here for 2 nights in Oct while she was checking out UBC as a possible University to attend in the fall of 2015.
