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. We had a sliding glass door to our shared balcony but no window to open for night time sleeping. The AC was fine. There was a... More

We read mixed reviews and weren't sure what to expect, but the Admiral Inn was wonderful. Our suite with living room, bedroom, and kitchenette was roomy and clean and only a little "worn" around the edges. Nothing to complain about at all. The staff were all exceptionally friendly. Best of all was the location, right by the harbor and within... More

This hotel is very well located, within easy walking distance to the inner harbour, parliament, float planes etc. We survived without a car having arrived by float plane, but parking was available. The rooms are simple and likely haven't been updated for quite a while. They are clean and comfortable, overlooking the street. A free, simple, continental breakfast was included... More

This is an older hotel with an old world charm. Well located just a short walk from the harbour. The rooms are a generous size, very comfortable bed, nice hot showers. Comes with a complimentary breakfast in the dining room, can be very busy so judge your time, there is also a patio you can sit and eat. We had... More

We stayed at the Admiral Inn for three nights in a king suite, and it was perfect for us. It is within walking distance of anything you'd want to do in the harbor. There was a patio off of the bedroom with a little table and chairs, so we could enjoy the nice evenings. The suite had a full size... More

We chose to stay at the Admiral Inn because of its proximity to Victoria's inner harbour/downtown area. We flew in by Harbour Air from Vancouver to Victoria and were able to walk from the float plane terminal to the Admiral Inn with absolutely no problem at all. Not having a car on this trip was just fine as everything we... More

We are glad you chose to stay with us. What a lovey way to enter Victoria. Isn't the scenery magnificent from the air? Although you don't really need a shuttle bus to get from the Harbour Air terminal , it is good to know that they do have a free one that will drop you right at our front door.... More

We've been back to Admiral Inn and found it even better than in 2011. Staff are terrific and the rooms although slightly dated in decor very clean and roomy. They put on a great breakfast down close to the foyer and there's a computer for emailing friends or family. It's a short walk up from the Clipper ferry from Seattle... More

Bottom line, it's our favorite place to stay in Victoria which we visit almost annually from California. It's dog-friendly, has a full kitchen which suits our dietary needs. We had a problem with an elderly bed which was promptly replaced, and the wifi and basic TV work really well. And it's so close to everything in the center of town;... More

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and I really enjoyed it. The staff were extremely helpful and always had a smile on their faces. This is not your conventional hotel.
