This our fifth (or more) year at Admiral Inn when in Victoria for an annual hockey tournament. The staff is friendly and professional, the suites are spacious (albeit a bit dated, but being updated), the decks are great not only for enjoying the sunshine but also for airing equipment (it really is not as gross as some may think:-)) and...

Once again the Admiral filled our needs completely. They even offered to store our crock pot for our next visit. Their clean rooms, easy walk to the downtown and attractions, wonderful staff, free parking and reasonable prices make the Admiral our go to place for our regular winter holidays. Although they are a bit dated, they are very clean and... More

My family of 4 stayed at Admiral Inn for 3 nights in December. We wanted a clean, convenient and safe place to stay and Admiral Inn was just right pace for us. If you're looking for a hotel with a restaurant or a pool, etc., look elsewhere. What this inn offer is a clean, spacious room with comfortable beds. In... More

We stayed at the Admiral Inn about a year ago in the off-season. The room on top floor was very dated, but clean and had lots of space if you have an extra body to accommodate. Shower needed upgrade. Good breakfast nook downstairs and lots of food choices. It was a very nice location just at the west end of... More

We found this by driving by. It is walking distance to town/harbor. The rooms were pretty quiet. We extended an extra 2 days. Nice breakfast each morning, guest laundry available. Clean and tidy. We would go back.

Our family of 4 stayed one night at the Admiral Inn on our recent visit to Victoria. The location of the Inn is excellent - so close to the Inner Harbour, just a short walk away. We had a bit of a view from our room, which was lovely. It was great to have our evening stroll down to the... More

You stayed with us over Thanks Giving. A very busy weekend for our city with holiday travelers and the Marathon contestants. Sorry it was wet, but I'm glad you spotted our Bicycles. I hope you come back to try them out when the weather is more obligingly. We'd be happy to reserve the family suite with another smaller standard room... More

In planning our trip to Victoria, BC, we were looking for a place that offered convenience and a reasonable price. We got both, plus a view of the water and free parking. We found The Admiral Inn to be welcoming and our room was quite spacious. If we return to this lovely area, we will definitely consider staying here.
