What makes UBC a good place to stay is the beautiful campus, which includes a lovely rose garden and scenic views of the mountains. Interacting with the students is wonderful, and the students who man the reception areas are very friendly and offer many helpful suggestions as to where to go and what to do. There is a food court at the Student Union, a nearby Drugmart, a cafe at the Learning Center, and several restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are adequate and include a working kitchen with refrigerator, glasses and dishes, utensils, etc. However, our rooms did not have AC, only fans, and they got very hot during the day. Housekeeping is very light. I noticed they only pulled our covers; they did not make the beds. They did not wash the dirty silverware or glasses. Internet reception is poor and does not work outside the complex. Many people who attended our conference said they took their computers to the reception area for better Internet access. Guests have to pay about $10 a day for parking.

Room tip: Leave the fan running so room doesn't overheat.

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad to hear that overall you had a good stay but sorry about the inconveniences that you experiences. We do have one bedroom rooms suites with AC available for booking but they do cost slightly more. We will address the housekeeping issues with our team and also look into the internet issue as well. We appreciate your feedback and will work to continue to improve.

Nice location, very accommodating staff, seems expensive considering the very basic room appointments. Air conditioning in our first room was a free standing unit that was very noisy. Staff moved us on request. In our second room the A/C was wall mounted & much quieter.

Thank you for staying with us. We are glad that our staff was able to reaccommodate you to a room of your liking. Vancouver hotel rates can get pricey during the summer peak season and our rates are based on availability and are typically significantly cheaper than other hotels in Vancouver. We appreciate your feedback and will continue to improve our rooms.

Rooms were reasonable size & included a decent shower. Convenient to have kitchenette facilities including fridge, toaster & microwave. The room however was unbearably hot both night & day. Impossible to work in so had to leave the front door open.

Room tip: Do not take room facing the sun

Our room was freshly renovated, new bed, well supplied kitchenette, air conditioner, wi-fi and hair dryer (all surprises). Staff were pleasant and accommodating. Walking distance to bus loop, beach, stores etc. Would stay again.

basic room with kitchen, clean, with good staff. it was very interesting walking thru and around the campus.
My stay was during the extra sessional period so not a lot of students there. Lots of construction, but campus is still extremely beautiful
