We stayed at the hotel for one night and everything was comfortable and convenient. The room was very clean and tidy and, as the hotel is on the last floor, we enjoyed the view over the SFU campus and up to the mountains of lower BC. The forest on Burnaby mountain, surrounding the campus, is just wonderful. Also, SFU Residence... More

Great place to stay. Close to so much and a gorgeous view from every window. I had a corner room with 2 walls of glass. Bed was very comfortable. Housecleaning was excellent. It is so nice to be able to stay on campus to visit my children.

A very nice modern luxury hotel room. Parking was included in the price! When booking, if you advise your visiting a student and provide their student number, you get a discount which makes for great value for money. Fabulous city view in the common hallway on a high floor! It was so convenient for visiting our family student. I would... More

Dining Hall was great. From steak to fish. The quality way, way above price. I used a dorm room, very clean, and new in a concrete building 8th floor. Lounge with view of Fraser River, see for miles. Elevators good, laundry on ground. Everything top notch. Also townhouses and such within the complex. Parking good, and cheap. University right there,... More

We've stayed here three times and enjoyed each stay. Book far in advance because it fills up quickly. Necessities are available close by, but restaurants are hit and miss. Rooms give you a "residence" feel, but are very functional. The view is great!

Whenever we are in the Burnaby area, this is our hotel of choice for a number of reasons. It is well-priced, clean, quiet, well set-up with great views of either the mountains or the city. As well, we can go for a stroll on some lovely trails nearby. If you want a hotel with tons of amenities, this is not... More

Being situated on the top floor of a university residence is certainly a different experience to almost every other hotel. The views across Vancouver is special; the corner room I stayed in is roomy; facilities really good at the price. I stayed a week and the room service staff went to a lot of trouble to accommodate my every whim.... More

I like here because of these things: 1- the prices are reasonable. 2- you can cook by yourself. 3-the area is beautiful. 4-parking is available and just 5$ per night. 5-it is 25 min to Vancouver city. 6- it was new and clean.

I spent here almost a week and the room service was good. There is a big tv in the room, fridge and alarm. The bed size was ok and the internet was super fast. To improve the hotel they should have air conditioner in the room because it was a little bit warm.
