    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.

    Location is best but the staff were indifferent. Total charges, including $16/day parking, is much higher.

    I might stay here again if the price was right.

    It was pretty interesting staying on campus in a dormitory. I got the room at a good price so I somewhat satisfied; however, I saw higher prices at one point and I didn't think the room was worth that much. Parking at a nearby garage was $16/24 hours for hotel guests. They gave me two voucher for free muffins for the entire stay despite the fact that there were two of us staying for two nights. It didn't bother me, but I thought they could be more generous with muffins.The room smelled somewhat like a men's locker when I first entered. I couldn't pinpoint the origin of the smell, but I was able to air it out by opening the window and turning on the fan.

    It is clean and cozy but it does not have air conditioner. I wish I get the information of nearby university cafeteria, if there are cafeterias nearby, that I can go for lunch or dinner on foot, I tried to change 20 $ bill to smaller bills (or coins) but the front desk does not have the change, It will be nice if they have enough change so that I can get the change to give a tip on the bed.

    There is no AC in the units and it is small as a coffin. Tiny little things you can barely move in. You get what you pay for. This thing is about half the size of places you pay twice as much for, for twice as much space.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Room was intolerably warm at estimated 78 F and no air conditioning. Electric fan was available but did not improve. Management offered a second fan. Exterior temperature was in mid 80’s.
