Location not suitable for attending down town even
I stayed there as the cheapest selection for a hotel in Vancouver, but was only visiting Vancouver for a series of concerts downtown. It was not convenient for that purpose.

So great!
We're so glad we stayed at Ponderosa studios at UBC. The prices for hotels downtown were way too expensive for what you get and we couldn't justify paying those exorbitant costs. UBC is one of the most beautiful campuses in the country and well worth a visit. I highly recommend enjoying all that it has to offer; it's a gorgeous sanctuary in the city. It's a bit of a drive from downtown, but a straight bus line gets you there if you don't want the hassles of traffic and parking. In nearby neighbourhoods there are lots of great shops and restaurants, so check those out. We got a room on the 18th floor where there is a breathtaking view of the ocean. The studio was super clean and modern. The bed was a little smaller than expected (we think it was a double instead of a queen), but it was comfortable and had really good pillows. The kitchen was well-equipped and handy. Our only glitch was that the TV didn't work properly, but the front desk was very helpful in addressing the issue. Overall it was a fantastic stay and we wouldn't hesitate to stay at Ponderosa again.

Do not stay here
No one cleaned our room at all while we were here. Never did we get fresh towels or bedding at all. The commute to downtown is 25 min and takes some time with traffic. There was no A/C in the unit that actually worked. It was overly hot no matter what we asked to do. Parking is extra as well so remember that nothing is included as they will nickel and dime you any chance they can get.

Good 6.0
parking fee C$16 required
Have to notice they don't provide any parking places. Another cost for parking fee, 16 C$ needed. Furthermore, the parkingplace is not close from hotel, 5 minute walk apart from Hotel. They don't provide the direction map from hotel to parkinglot, so it is a little bit confusing to find the way for new comers to UBC. Not convenient and expensive for rent-a-car users.

It was a great stay overall. I was very pleased with the overall equipment in the room. I was a little disappointed with the cleanliness. Staff was very kind and friendly.
