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). For... More

Stayed in ground floor suite- spotlessly clean and roomy - very comfortable bed and nice sofa and everything you would need in the cupboards and a small fridge - nice upgraded bathroom and kitchen with table and four chairs - great for a young family or couple - but the one downside is no airconditioning - there is a fan...

For the price, this hotel was not worth it. We had a wedding at UBC, and the bride and groom had booked a block of rooms here. Muggy and hot a Vancouver summer weather made for a sauna in the room. Nice enough rooms, but the lack of comfort made $220 look excessive. Would have rather stayed downtown and paid... More

When we arrived in our room, our first impression was not good and things did not really improve. First of all, the hallway leading to the room was extremely hot with no ventilation. When we got to our stifling hot room we were surprised to find that we were on the main floor and the bedroom windows were sealed shut... More

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
