. . . nor should you judge a hotel by its exterior. After twenty years of driving by this very unassuming property we decided to cross the threshold and experience the interior - what an unexpected surprise. The Surf's is a well maintain property with delightful rooms all of which have balconies and wonderfully water views. As has been said... More

We have just returned from 1 night at the Surf Motel. It was a spur-of-the- moment Valentine's Day adventure. We loved the place ! It has magnificent views out over the Strait of Juan de Fuca and across to the Olympic Mountains, not to mention all the marine traffic. The motel room was very comfortable, and completely spotless. A comfortable... More

Stayed here on my 7 week road trip across Canada & the U.S. This was the final Canadian motel I stayed at before heading stateside. There are lots of hotels in Victoria overlooking the downtown harbour if you enjoy seeing other hotels out your window but this is the only place actually on the ocean side so prepare yourself for...

We stay in Surf Motel every time we come to Victoria so it's obvious we really love it. Before we discovered it we stayed in other motels and hotels and there is just no comparison. The location is fantasic - amazing views, you can just spend time gazing through the window. The rooms have balconies overlooking the ocean. I've just... More

We really enjoyed this location, our room and the staff. What a great every changing ocean view! How refreshing to see the ocean, the fishing boats, ships, sailboats, tugs and cruise ships rather than more buildings. I enjoy sleeping to the sound of the waves and I don't mind the seagulls. We were only minutes away from downtown, and closer... More

First, the pro's: nice enough motel, staff was friendly and helpful. Outstanding view from the room. Bathroom was spotless and looked to be fairly recently re-done. Located in a neighborhood of older homes, many of which are being/have been restored, so if you enjoy strolling through those types of areas, then that's a plus for you, and the downtown/shopping areas...

My husband and I stayed here on our recent vacation to Victoria. We had never been to Victoria before but we knew we wanted an ocean view hotel. This hotel met all of our expectations and more! Every room has an amazing view of the endless ocean. Many "oceanfront" hotels were in the bays so you were looking across the... More

This is a great motel in so many ways. Our group had two rooms in the motel and also the cottage. My brother was thrilled with the cottage for his family. The motel rooms have a functional kitchen, amazing views, big balconies, comfy beds and lots of space. The bathrooms are a little dated, but everything worked well. (You might... More

Great motel, great location and great prices. Stayed here for two nights and it was perfect. Our room was on the third floor at the end so was probably the biggest. It had fully functioning cooker, fridge, sink and all cooking utensils and crockery etc. They do not serve breakfast but there is a cafe five minutes walk away. The... More

Fantastic old-style motel. Clean, comfortable and the best view in town.
