    I liked the peacefulness! And the size of the Bathroom. And the Tim Horton's in the Morning. I really Loved the Price!! I travel by myself and paying over $100 to sleep causes me to shorten my Trips or not take them at all! I'll be visiting Kelowna more at the times that you have the Campus Open to the Public.

    Seemed to be Stuffy. There is great Air conditioning in the rooms but the air generally needs more flow. The mattress was worn but serviceable : ) Not perfectly clean but I was comfortable. Thanks for the opportunity to leave my comments.

    The room was spartan but adequate - no TV but there was internet and we could watch movies on our lap top - the bed was much more comfortable than it initially looked - great kitchen facility with microwave, fridge, etc... bathroom was very small as was the shower but we realized that it was a dorm - next time i would rent the family quad as the price was good for what you would be offered in regards to space.

    The really drunk customers that arrived at 3:00am and made a lot of noise - but again to be expected as it is a dorm so it wasn't too bad

    If have something happen on campus, this is a good choice, because you can meet all people there.

    staff were great; very accommodating to our needs. nice there was a kitchen.

    just be aware it is the student residences and therefore pretty stark in terms of amenities. no phone in the room, no tv. you have to ask for a blow dryer. it's a dorm so you will hear people talk down the hall, so if you are aware of this and don't have an issue, then it is fine accommodations.

    I like the quietness of this location and the safety. The view was excellent.

    During summer time, parking charge seems excessive when the parking is mostly vacant. Reception staff should verbally remind visitors that supplies such as hair dryer is available upon request. Shower stall in my room was not draining and I found out late at night. Although I was given a different room, it was just troublesome to pack and unpack to move one room when you are tired already. I requested an extra pillow and it wasn't there. The water quality was surprisingly poor. It visibly brownish in colour and makes me uncomfortable to rinse anything edible.

    The place was quiet, had easy access and is close to the airport if one was flying to Kelowna. The price we found was better than most Hotels and Motels in the area and since budget was a priority for this trip it fit the bill just fine. I would recommend this place if looking for value and you don't require tv's, phones and other amenity's you'd be used to in hotels. The kitchen is definitely a plus if you're looking to cook during your stay.

    The fitness facilities are not include with the price as we were lead to believe (that being said, at least they were available for a drop in fee)

    Convenient to the airport.

    It would have been helpful to know that there was a problem with the water during the period I was staying there. Because of the water issue, I had to purchase bottled water to drink and brush my teeth. Also, I was not aware that the room did not have a phone or television. These would have been things I would have liked to know prior to my stay.

    Laundry, shopping, resting

    Paying for parking, the annoying buzzer sound in the elevator.

    The kitchen and rooms. The location is nice,

    No tv., missing a few items such as plates, glasses,larger pot. Internet access was not good.

    Very good location and beautiful campus

    When recommending ubc as a place to stay I clarified that the parking was quite far from the dorm so I felt uncomfortable alone and it would be difficult to carry a child and all their provisions from the car if a second parent was unavailable.

    I had just moved to Kelowna and needed a place to stay while I sorted out my long term accommodations. Staying on campus was just what I was looking for. Reasonable rates, clean yet private. As I had no way to connect to the internet, my parents found the UBC accommodation for me on-line, booked my a room on the internet (in Calgary AB) and then let me know where it was located. I arrived on Aug 16th and the woman behind the desk was very friendly and helpful. I stayed one more night and was very thank full that it was affordable. I'm glad I had a car because it might have been trickier finding it as it was about 9:30 at night when I arrived. The only other challenge was the WiFi was very unpredictable. Other then that, I was very happy.

    Our son goes to UBC-Okanagan. That is the reason we have chosen this campus fascility every time we visit him. We can stay close. Other than that, everything is just basic. Nice stay. Student employees are great.
