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. I will admit that the location (staying on campus) was good to allow us to quickly get around campus, try out the dining options, attend a tour, and walk to Wreck Beach.... More

We have stayed in the West Coast Suites twice, both times because I had surgery at UBC hospital. This is not a 5-Star Hotel, but the suites are large, the beds comfortable, the kitchen more than adequate for a 5-7 day stay and the walk to the hospital was only 10 minutes. We also had great success using the Vancouver... More

My wife and I reserved a room here for four nights for late last week. It was convenient for her as I was scheduled for surgery and a three day stay at UBC Hospital. The hospital is a short walk away. But two hours after check in I saw a quick moving bug on the floor. Within the hour we... More

Stayed here while taking in a conference at UBC and overall disappointed with the experience. Pros: - clearly if you have business at the University Is the location is good. As there are no real other hotel options nearby - having a kitchen unit was convenient ( having said that the kitchen faucet was not working properly) - kitchen is... More

Where to begin? At almost $200 a night (inc taxes, parking), the West Coast Suites provide a unique "now I remember how much I hated living in a dorm" experience...particularly if you need to have windows open (no air conditioning). I did stay here once in the winter, and it was less horrible. DO NOT get a room facing the... More

We've stayed at the West Coast Suites three times between last November and now. Good news--if you are in Vancouver for UBC business, you can't beat the locataion. The rooms are clean, and it is very nice to have a kitchen in the rooms. The front desk and housekeeping staffs are very nice and helpful. The breakfast (during summer months)... More

Stay at the West Coast Suites for their unbeatable convenience as a comfortable apartment hotel right on campus. Don't expect a deluxe resort. There is no air conditioning or room service, for example, but there is a well equipped kitchen, a roomy living room with pull-out couch, a comfortable bedroom, and a nicely appointed bathroom with shower (no tub).
