My husband and I stayed for four nights-we love staying in a place with our own kitchen so it seemed like and excellent option. The staff at check in were so friendly and helpful! Walking into the unit the first thing we noticed was the dirty washroom, with dark black hairs around the sink and shower. We had some lysol...

Hi MJM7777. Thank you for your time to write this review. Sorry you and your husband had a disappointing stay. We would love to talk to you in person and would like to ask you to contact us at reservations.ubco@ubc.ca or 250-807-8050. Because our campus is filled with many trees and shrubs we do get the occasional insects in the...

This a great option for staying in Kelowna. The guest rooms are cheap, clean and affordable! We went with a group of 8. We rented two of the four bedroom dorms. It was great because we each got our own space, but there was also the shared living room and kitchen space for us all to visit. This is a...

Hi Caribby96. Thank you for your wonderful review. Those 4-bedroom units are indeed great for any group that would like to stay together in accommodation, but still have their own space to sleep in. We love to see you and your friends again on campus in the future.

We stayed in a four bedroom suite. Lovely location and view from the campus, nice sized rooms, and the suite included a small kitchen and sitting room with a TV. Large laundry facility on-site. The carpets and couches/chairs were stained and needed a deep cleaning. The stovetop needed a good scrubbing, and there were crumbs on the counter around the...

Hi Nicolenovak2016. Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you liked your large suite and we will definitely check in with our housekeeping staff to ensure they do clean to our standards (which is hotel standard). We do hope to see you again on campus in the future.

This was a last minute booking after a mess with a booking elsewhere - which probably worked out for the better! Clean and tidy, easy to find and a very beautiful campus. Great value as long as you don't want 5* amenities. We had a beautiful view out over the lake, too!

UBCO_Accommodation, Manager at UBC Okanagan Campus, responded to this review

Thank you Eos23! Best bargain in the valley for sure. Like you say, we are not a 5-star hotel, but offer clean and quiet rooms on a beautiful (5-star!) campus for a great rate. See you again next year.

My original plans fell through for my trip to Eastern BC a week before I was leaving. At that point hotels in the area were $250/night! UBC was $50 or $60. It was a no brainer! The facility itself is very clean and nicely quiet. Wifi was fast, no issues at all. There was a nice area to cook in...

I stayed in a single dorm overnight and was very pleased with how clean, comfortable and affordable my accommodation was. For $50/night + $3.50/night parking to stay close to the airport and about 20 minutes drive from the city core is a great deal, especially during the summer. All floors in the residence had a common room, and shared kitchen/dining...

Hi Dan L. Thank you for staying with us on campus! $50 per night is hard to beat in Kelowna in the summer, isn't it?

UBC Okanagan campus opens up their student rooms to travellers during the summer vacation. This is a great budget option. Just on the edge of town, but with wide views out over the valley, the rooms here are spacious, clean, and have full kitchens and shower/toilet. The decor is sparse and the bed isn't luxurious (it's a student room, folks!),...

Hi VancouverStephanie! Thank you very much for your great review. As you said it so well yourself, our rooms are not luxurious (it's student rooms, not a 5-star hotel) but they are very functional and clean. And our students at the front desk (check-out their name tags to see what they are majoring in) are our gems, always ready to...

Hi desertfor123456. Thank you for your nice review. We are happy your expectations were met. Our Monashee suites are great for single travellers, couples or families.

If it weren't for the front desk staff, I was ready to give 2 out of 5 for the rating. Yes, it is a dormitory and I shouldn't have high expectations. But, there was no bath tub and anything in the room was bare minimum and basic. The doors for the rooms are probably good in case of fire but...

Hello tex_pulpa. Thank you very much for your review. I am sorry your stay was not up to your expectations.
