I've been staying at the Admiral Inn for over 15 years and it's my favourite place to stay in Victoria. There are fancier (more expensive) places to stay in Victoria but you can't beat the location. I park my vehicle and it doesn't move for days, everything I want to see and do is within walking distance. The front desk... More

Our room's heater was broken and we got in late because we went to Butchart Gardens to see the Christmas lights. They sent someone to fix it. He made numerous attempts to fix it. After quite some time when nothing seemed to be working and we wanted to go to bed, we asked the front desk for a new room.... More

I remember your happy group when you checked in. I am sorry that the happy mood did not continue during your stay. I would love if you would try us again sometime. If you do, please contact me directly. We apologize for the heater breakdown. They are a combination heater AC unit, thus they vent to the outside. The unseasonal... More

My family and I visit Victoria once or twice a year. We acquired a small dog 8 years ago - so, had to find another 'regular' accommodation that offered pet-friendly rooms, but was very close to the Inner Harbour. We found the Admiral and have never looked back. Admittedly, the Admiral's decor is starting to look a wee bit tired... More

Close to Royal Victoria Museum and COHO Ferry. I had a conference at the conference centre the next day. Very handy. Found the property very clean with friendly staff. This is a new place to stay for me when in Victoria.

Well located near ferry dock, wharf, government house and museums. Tired decor is more than offset by spaciousness of the units. Staff was very helpful, eager to tell us places to visit in Victoria. Kitchen in unit makes this a great place for a multi-day stay.

During part of our vacation in Victoria, BC, our family stayed at the Admiral Inn. This is an older hotel, quite nice, well maintained, and very clean. The staff was welcoming, unfailingly courteous and helpful. We had a suite on the second floor, reachable by a flight of outdoor stairs or by elevator. In the back of our suite, a... More

Admiral Inn is well-located on Belleville St, next door to the Seattle Ferry Terminal and within easy walking distance of the harbour, Parliament Building, Information Centre and shopping precinct. Our room was very comfortable and included a kitchen and quite fast internet. I found the manager and staff helpful and the laundry was a bonus. Breakfast was adequate although the... More

I was 100% happy with the Admiral Inn. Its location in Victoria is fabulous, my room was spotless and quiet, the bed comfy, and the staff polite, courteous and informative. Its ideal for people with celiac disease as they provide gluten free bread AND toaster (brilliant!) and the kitchen in my suite was fully equipped so I could make meals... More

We were very happy with this hotel, which was quite cheap considering the location. Part hotel, part motel, don't expect great things from the breakfast, but besides for that, everythings was really what we wanted. Two minutes from the Black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles, and five minutes to walk to midtown, the location can't be beaten, and and we... More

Thank you for your response and letting everyone know about our location, and great value. Your comments about breakfast give us the opportunity to let everyone know that we have made some additions to the breakfast. We now have either or both, cheese & meat plate daily and hot sausage rolls. People seem to really appreciate this addition. More

Our stay was at 3 star comfortable hotel. It was located near the harbour and within walking distance of everything. We received actual metal keys for our room. The room was large but dated.
