  • 8.0.Very Good

    Room was comfortable. Parking was extra - a lot extra. I seem to recall something like $24/day. The desk staff were patient with my navigational issues. (A lot had changed since my year of graduation from UBC - 1970.)

  • 6.0.Good

    A hotel run and staffed by earnest social democrats (i.e., arts undergrads instead of business college graduates). Not being professionally managed it lacked simple little things like properly located switches and bedside lamps, and hand soap until I asked for it, and it suffered from inconsistent wifi and an improperly set up low resolution television. Staff was pleasant but spacey.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    It was a good location for activities on the west side of Vancouver and UBC in this area is very pleasant. The room was exactly as photographed but was quite warm and opening the window had little effect on this-but it did increase the level of noise from the adjacent roof's "machinery". There was a fan in the room-which we didn't recognize until the next morning unfortunately. Check in was relatively easy and having a parkade that had in and out privileges was great. It was also a good price.

    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.

    Staff was pleasant and helpful. Room was clean and well represented by the pictures. The only downfall was that there was no air conditioning but there was a fan. Room was quiet. There were plates, small bowls, glasses, wine glasses for 2. There were small pots. 1 dishwashing pod and dish soap. I didn't find a dish cloth or sponge. I saw a place for yoga and another room with pool which I think you can purchase a pass for but I did no inquire.
