We are a retired university-educated couple, and of course we are quite hip. We stayed in room 801 for three days in early August 2015. The room is very large and clean, although oddly laid out with a large unused space between the washroom right inside the door and the living quarters around a corner. Our view south was lovely,...

Interesting option as it is not a traditional hotel. It is located on the top floor of one of the university's dorms. The rooms are nice and worthy of a level 4 rating with the the exception of the fact that there was no air conditioning (which at the time of my stay July 2015 was not disclosed on it's... More

The Simon is not like a traditional hotel, but it has comfortable rooms, and if you have to be on campus. We have stayed here several times dropping off or picking up our daughter for university. We have stayed in the queen room and the suite, both of which are good, but I prefer the suite as it is much... More

This hotel located @ Simon Fraser University is a great bargain. We got a suite with everything you might need, including a fridge & unlimited free hot drinks in a very clean room with a picture window. Located adjacent is the SFU Dining Hall where for a flat fixed fee you could eat anything & everything you might want 24/7!... More

We stayed here for a Valentine's getaway and it happened to be reading break at SFU. The hotel is part of residence, although separated nicely. The room was basic but spotless, excellent bed/bedding.

We recently spent some time in Coquitlam visiting family, and stayed at the Simon Hotel. I find this hotel to be very quiet and restful, with nice mountain views. There is a strong feeling of being safe in this hotel, because of the door security systems, controlling access to the hotel level. Since the hotel level is on the 8th... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night and everything was comfortable and convenient.
