SFU's Simon Hotel is a little gem: the room I stayed in was very clean and the staff friendly. Everything you need is provided, but the best part is the proximity to the dining hall. If you travel with kids, I don't think there is a more convenient location than this hotel. You won't have to worry about food, the...

Lovely accommodation, recommend to all- singles, couples, families! Rooms, bedding & towels are very clean & well presented. Parking is provided free of charge. Our room had a bath which was a relaxing, unexpected surprise! Wi-fi was steady and had no issues. No complaints. There is also a buffet breakfast downstairs available for $7 which is amazing.

Our son is attending SFU in the fall, so we stayed here to check out the school. We didn't have high expectations because we knew the hotel was in the same building as student residences.
