Stayed at the Inn for 10 days. The interior is not the most modern but it's comfortable and clean. The bed is excellent and affords a great nights sleep. The pillows not so much. Housekeeping is friendly and efficient and in general the staff are friendly and accommodating. The room is equipped with all the basic requirements with the kitchen... More

Stayed for 1 week, paid big nightly price for a very old fashioned furnishing suite and not so comfortable beds. In need of major renos.... for a downtown big revenue hotel. Had housekeeping once in the week and very bad job, sorry girls... but they made our bed and nothing else...not even clean towels. They didn't want to work...very obvious!!!!... More

Stayed three nights in room 212 with a deck providing a view of the Empress Hotel. Beds were comfortable, rooms were clean although dusting could improve. Continental breakfast was adequate. Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Great location near the MV Coho ferry dock. We heard talk of a renovation which may be upcoming.

We stayed here for two nights- a wonderful location. Close to the harbor, government building, Empress Hotel, Fisherman's Wharf. The inn's furnishings were quite dated and the whole building seems a bit tired, but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful. Bikes, with helmets and locks, were available for use. Highly recommend!

The Admiral Inn is located close to the harbor in Victoria, within walking distance to several major attractions and good restaurants. My son, guide dog and I were fortunate to stay in a one bedroom suite. The unit was spacious with a separate bedroom, the open area room with another Queen size bed, sofa bed, and fully stocked kitchen. The... More

First off, this inn was booked by another couple in our group, so not our 1st choice. The location is good, just around the corner and a short walk from the harbour and they do have bikes that you can use. The continental breakfast is good - hard boiled eggs (cold), toast, mini-muffins, cold cuts, cheese, yogurt, a couple choices... More

The Admiral offers value accommodation in one of the best locations in Victoria. A family suite comprising a king bed in one room and a queen plus sofa bed in the other (together with kitchenette) was a spacious and convenient combination at under CAD200 a night for two friends travelling together. It even included parking, wi-fi, free loan bikes, and... More

My wife and I have enjoyed here two days. It's four minutes on foot from the Parliament building. Friendly staff, free bicycles, clean room, and modest breakfast make you trip comfortable. There are a few good restaurants around, but you need to make reservations in advance.

This place seems to be family-run and they are all very helpful. It is a budget motel, but they go to a lot of trouble with supplies, breakfast, bikes, and the location cannot be better, with balconies off the rooms as well. As long as you don't go there with expectations that it might be like the other hotels in... More

My boyfriend and I had planned for a late arrival but actually caught a ferry hours before our original arrival time and when we arrived at the hotel the woman up front was very warm and friendly and quickly checked us in. Our room was very spacious given the excellent price we paid for a holiday weekend! The continental breakfast... More
